As some of you may already be aware it’s time again for the annual Seiyuu awards in Japan. You might remember how I went on at length a long while back about how last years awards were more or less rigged by special interests and this year I can’t see it being much different with a “special committee” being in charge of vetting the nominees who are being picked by the public again. Nonetheless I am a dreamer and so I’d like to share my own picks versus my expectations of what is going to go down in these 3rd annual seiyuu awards.
Best Male: Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch Lamperouge) or Mamoru Miyano (Setsuna F. Seiei)
Best Female: Aya Hirano (Konata Izumi)
Best Supporting Male: Hiroshi Kamiya (Tieria Erde or Michel Blanc)
Best supporting Female: Emiri Katou (Kagami Hiiragi)
Best New Male: Couldn’t tell you to save my life
Best New Female: Haruka Tomatsu (Nagi)
Best Singer: Somehow, some way, Maaya Sakamoto (Triangler)
Best Personality: Aya Hirano
Overseas Choice Award: Aya Hirano (For Something) or Aya Endo (Sheryl Nome)
Best Male: Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch Lamperouge)
Best Female: Rie Kugimiya (Take your pick honestly)
Best Supporting Male: Ken Narita (Jerimiah Gottwald) or Hiroshi Kamiya (Michel Blanc)
Best Supporting Female: Kaori Nazuka (Nunally Vi Britannia)
Best New Male: ?????
Best New Female: Megumi Nakajima (Ranka Lee)
Best Singer: Megumi Nakajima
Best Personality: Mamoru Miyano
Overseas Choice Award: Not mine to make
Well, all that’s left to do is sit back and see what happens. More than likely though I am way off on both of these lists and the “special committee” is going to go way out in left field with their final picks, but then again who ever said that I recognized these awards as a legitimate affair. Therefore in the end while I do not care when the times comes I shall be there, just to stay aware. Yawn…….
