2016 Seiyuu Awards

It’s that time of year again. Looks like they’ve either forgotten about, or done away with the English site/overseas award this time around…or maybe it’s too early, I don’t know.

My votes

Best Actor: Koyama Rikiya

Klaus and Tora?

Best Actress: Saito Chiwa

I just want to give Chiwa-chan an award for churning out awesome performances while heavily pregnant AND not stopping work at all after giving birth. Just think about it, she oozed all that sexy Yona tsundere while she was on the verge of popping a baby.

Best Supporting Actor: Maeno Tomoaki

Best Supporting Actress: Kobayashi Yuu

First names that came to mind, no real reason behind the votes. I just enjoyed the overall body of work from both of these guys this year. Kobayu really shone in a bunch of supporting roles, even when I only glanced through things like Monmusu and ClassCris.

Best Newcomer Actor: Kobayashi Yusuke

Best Newcomer Actress: Ishigami Shizuka

You probably already know how much I love both of these guys. Whisper it, but I ship them together too…

Ahem. There were 3 awards dished out in the newcomer category last year which was quite funny, they’re unashamedly making up the rules as they go along!

I voted for Ozawa Ari last time out but Suzaki Aya was the one who got the gong instead. Surely Ozawa-chan will be up this time around. Unless someone high up at I’m Ent decides they’d rather have someone older like Onishi Saori or Sakura Ayane pick it up, which would quite frankly, be bizarre. Ayaneru might have a better shot at supporting awards…

For other agency peeps, there’s Takahashi Rie from 81p or Kurosawa Tomoyo from Mausu as possibilities…and yeah, there are all those Live/P idols whose names and faces I don’t recognize, plus MuRay might want in on the action even if those other two aren’t yet prominent enough to warrant acting prizes…not that that ever matters, I guess?

For the guys, Uchida Yuma (I’m Ent) and Umehara Yuichiro (Arts) are obvious candidates.

Singer: Sakamoto Maaya

Good Lord I have no idea, this category is always like the Sahara for me.

Personality: Sugita Tomokazu

Good Lord I have no idea, this category is always like the Sahara for me.

PS. I’m sure they’d like to give Minase Inori something somewhere, but I’m not sure where.

PSS. I want to give Hayami Saori something too, but I don’t know what. The ‘Ganbatta ne!’ award?

You can vote at the usual place.

    Hayami Saori –> Singer. I think her Shirayukihime OP was fairly popular, plus she’s co-written the song and written the lyrics, so yeah. Best way to put her up on the stage.

      Highly doubt it, track record shows that the award always goes to idols or seiyuu units – Hayamin is way too low-key for that. iM@S looks more likely this time around…
