New Sasameki Koto Seiyuu and Character Designs!

Yay!! More Sasameki Koto news! ^^ The Sasameki Koto website has been updated with new character designs and the seiyuu for the supporting characters! Aside from Miyako and Kiyori's voice actresses, most of the new seiyuu are unknown or little known talent, but I'm looking forward to hearing some new yuri anime seiyuu.

Masaki is being played by Ayaka Shimizu, who has otherwise only played one minor role.

Kiyori's seiyuu is Emiri Katou, who has done a lot more voice work, but few major roles- although she has played Kagami in Lucky Star, minor parts in Aria the Natural and Mnemosyne, and Sakuya in Candy Boy.

Aoi's seiyuu is Mayuki Makiguchi, who has played minor roles in a few series, like Soul Eater, Gintama, and Antique Bakery.

Tomoe is being played by Hitomi Harada, who has done minor roles in a few series, like Bleach, Junjou Romantica 2, and Kimikiss pure rouge.

Miyako is being played by Chiwa Saito, who played Mami in Marimite, Chiyo in Strawberry Panic, Aika in the Aria series, Anita in R.O.D. -The TV-, and Kaori in Gokujou Seitokai, among numerous other roles- I've only listed the 6 Degrees of Yuri roles. Based on her credits, it looks like she can sound suitably cute and acerbic with gusto. :)

And here are the new character designs for yuri fangirl Aoi, and the founders of the "women who love women" club, Tomoe and Miyako. ^^

I love how Tomoe and Miyako look together, and how Sumi and Ushio are gazing at each other on the main page of the website now!! ^_^

Additionally, the Sasameki Koto theme song will be performed by Natsumi Kiyoura, who sang the opening themes for Spice and Wolf and Sketchbook ~full color'S~.

It goes without saying, but I can't wait for this series to air!! XD (Probably in October.)

Mmmmm... Definitely looking forward on this series!

I love how Tomoe glances at Miyako. It looked sooooo gentle and kind.

And definitely, Sumika and Ushio looking at each other chilled my spine so much that it made me feel excited for them. *nod nods*

And lol at Aoi! The way she was illustrated from the main page, it looked like she's making such a face because Kiyori's underarm smells/stinks. *ROFLs* XDDDD

Thanks for the update by the way Katherine!

There sure aren't popular seiyuus here, but I think this is their way of making a seiyuu popular: By voicing in a very popular series like Sasameki Koto. I think K-ON! might have done that. ^_^

@ ftlyfl- You're welcome! ^^ If Sasameki Koto became as popular as K-ON! that would be great! Although there isn't any singing (read: not as many opportunities to sell CDs to fans) in Sasameki Koto, hopefully its awesomeness will catch on (I'm looking forward to Anime News Network's Fall Anime Preview Guide, to see what the reviewers at ANN think) and hopefully the seiyuu in it will get plenty of new roles later. :)
