[information provided by Joe Petrow, some additions by Hitoshi Doi.]

Though Game Voice is expensive, most of the pages are in color (it is actually listed as a mook). It is also the first magazine dedicated to seiyuu limited exclusively to game performances, so more of the less well known seiyuu get more exposure here.

The cover features Sakura Taisen seiyuu Yokoyama Chisa, in a pink and red kimono. Inside is a B2-size poster of Chisa in the same outfit.
[unfortunately, this poster is folded..]

13 page article on Sakura Taisen. Full page picture of the six main voice actresses (Yokoyama Chisa, Takano Urara, Tanaka Mayumi, Tomizawa Michie, Fuchizaki Yuriko, and Nishihara Kumiko), as full page pictures and profiles of each individually. All of the girls are dressed in casual contemporary style. There is an extra full-page picture of Chisa in the kimono.

6 page special on Miyamura Yuko. Some very sexy pictures of Yuko in a red tank top and black skirt, lying down.

Personal Pick Up

These are a serious of close-ups on game seiyuu. Each section has pictures, a short interview, and a short article about their "takaramono" (treasured item)

Iizuka Mayumi -Smile- 4 page special.
Full page picture of Mayumi with hair up, wearing a pink and white checkered dress, with pink sweater top. Other pictures of her in that outfit, as well as with her hair in pigtails, with yellow T-shirt and tan shorts. Mayumi's takaramono (treasure) is a signed copy of the book "Paradise Eve"

Toyoshima Machiko -Truth- 4 page special.
Full page head and shoulders picture of Machiko with hair down in a short red dress, with red and white checkered scarf (VERY nice). Other pictures include Machiko with hair down wearing a white shirt, and with hair up, wearing a floral pattern dress with white shirt top (only top button buttoned).

The interview talks about the differences between her and Sugihara Manami, her character in Sentimental Graffiti. Also Machiko talks about herself, saying she likes adventure games ("Clock Tower 2 hoshii na..."), she had a very active high school life, and that she likes guys who can cook, and thinks it would be fun to cook together.

Machiko's takaramono is a dolphin nuigurumi that her father bought her in San Diego, which she named "Sandy". She also says that another treasure is the postcards she receives from her fans, which she takes home to read thoroughly and to remember their names.

Sugawara Sachiko -Corn-: 4 page special.
Full page head and shoulder picture of Sachiko with short hair, wearing a plaid yellow and white collared shirt, with a white t-shirt underneath. Other pictures show Sachiko in a white dress with a plaid apron, making a strawberry cake. Sachiko's takaramono is her diary.
[It looks like Sachiko is left-handed (judging by the pictures).]
