It seems like Tokyo 2020 Olympics are still far away but Japan is already setting up everything. While their cities are already shifting for a english-ready mindset and other things are being improved, for us, seiyuu fans, it’s the opening ceremony that is the most important.
[UPDATED – Information corrected]
While this might not be an official poll, its main focus is to urge the fans to vote as a means to up the chances of them being nominated to perform in the opening cerimony.
The competition is fierce with over 100 names nominated to sing the opening song but when browsing the names people will find some familiar names.
Mamoru Miyano, Shouta Aoi, Kenichi Suzumura, Kamiya Hiroshi, Daisuke Ono, even Kamiya Hiroshi + Daisuke Ono duo, ST☆RISH, Kiramune Allstars, GRANRODEO and OLDCODEX are among the nominess in a surprising nomination. But as we know, chances are that these seiyuu will fail to reach #1 most voted because they’re up against One Ok Rock, Gackt, Babymetal, T.M.Revolution, Kat-Tun, UVERworld, Versailles, the gazettE and many other high rollers in the business.
Still, if fans are willing to help out and gather to have one of the seiyuu nominated to sing the opening song, it not only would be a great honor for them but it will also be a trailblazing opportunity that would put that seiyuu and the whole seiyuu community in another level.
