Seiyuu Digest

Seiyuu digest main cover

Our newest corner is finally here! With SEIYUU DIGEST we make a big overview of some of your favorite seiyuu careers, take a look at some trivia, talk about their music career and other things that may come along the way – and with all of this compiled you’re ready to go with some new information regarding your favorite Japanese male seiyuu.

These digests will be posted monthly and will cover some of today’s most interesting seiyuu units and seiyuu solo projects in Japan.

As fans ourselves, we always struggled with finding information about our favorite seiyuu. Either because the wikipedia pages are a mess and don’t hold any interesting or developped information, or because the only information available is either in Japanese or Chinese, languages that most people aren’t familiar with.

This is one of the things that, most of the times, make the seiyuu fans around the world a bit lost. There’s not enough information regarding your favorite seiyuu online, or that information is in a language you can’t fully grasp as of today or only a small amount of people know or support that seiyuu because he’s still relatively unknown in the business.

Taking that into our consideration, we decided to enable fans with the information they need and want and all in English with several notes and facts to come along with their biographical information. Please consider this as a place where you can get to know more about your favorite seiyuu, get to know their accolades and interesting details about their careers.

If you’re new to the fandom or even if you’re already a veteran only now paying attention to a particular seiyuu, this is the right place for you. We focus on both known and slightly unknown (we like to call it “cult” or “underrated”) seiyuu so expect to find digests about almost everyone in the business, provided that their career is more than 2 years old (because we need content to make the digest interesting rather than yet another wikipedia page).

Attention!

  • The digests are released on the 15th, every month.
  • Every two years there’s a massive digest that makes up for the months of December + January
  • Updates to the old digests will be made once a year (if we have time available to update).
  • We don’t accept requests for digests.
  • The subjects for our digests are decided a year before release.
  • There are over 300 seiyuu active in the business, it’s impossible for us to write about everyone you love. While we understand that you want your favorites to be featured on this, you also need to understand that we want to give the spotlight in equal measures to the known and not so well known seiyuu.
  • Every other month we delve into the career of unknown/cult/rookie/veteran/popular/superstar seiyuu – we love to spread the word about each one of them, regardless of popularity.
  • Have fun reading our digests and remember not to bash anyone on our comment section (either seiyuu, their fans). Respect is key on this website.

  1. God bless this blog omg I found out so many things about a couple of seiyuus I never knew before! I just want to know if Fukuyama Jun will be featured soon? Would love to know more about him soon haha

    • Thank you so much for visiting our website as well and reading our seiyuu digests. Welcome!

      Well, we have Fukuyama on our to-do list (as well as 200 more seiyuu) but unfortunately his digest might not be released as soon as you’d like. At the moment we’ve already sorted out 2/3 of 2018’s Seiyuu Digest releases following our well known tradition of giving the spotlight to both “unknown/cult seiyuu” and “well known/famous seiyuu”. Depending on our available time (because Fukujun has a lot of info and a long career for us to dive into) he might be featured by the end of 2018, 1st quarter of 2019.
      But no promises, I don’t want to frustrate anyone’s expectations if we aren’t able to write about him.

      Anyways, thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  6. I am a big fan of seiyuus so this website is truly a blessing (not just for me but for other seiyuu fans out there)!
    Anyway, I was wondering if Namikawa Daisuke is on your “to-do” list? He’s actually my favorite seiyuu :3

    • Thanks for nice words 🙂 As we’ve said before to all the other people that asked us about a particular seiyuu: all seiyuu are on our to-do list. Some are featured on this year’s digests, others aren’t. We’re keeping the balance between known and unknown/cult seiyuu so it’ll be Namikawa’s turn in its due time. Thanks for your support!
