Hayashibara Megumi was the guest, and she answered some questions by
fans that were faxed in.
Q: You were a nurse, why did you become a seiyuu?
Megumi: I went to nurse school and seiyuu school at the same time.
I was thinking about quitting nursing, but I wasn't sure about how
much seiyuu work I would get, so I got my nursing license.
Also my parents were against me becoming a seiyuu.
I worked at a normal hospital for a while.
Then I started getting more and more seiyuu jobs, and I quit nursing.
Q: Did you poke the needle into people's arms?
Megumi: Yes, I like doing that.
The moment that the blood flows.. It feels great.
Q: How many tongue twisters do you know?
Megumi: I don't know the number, but in my radio show the fans send them in.
Q: How can I become a seiyuu?
Megumi: I get asked this a lot.
Maybe the fans will hate me for saying this, but while you are still
asking this question, you won't be able to become a seiyuu.
The people who are seiyuu have done a lot of work to become seiyuu.
There isn't anyone who has become a seiyuu by having someone tell them,
"Do this, do that.."
Megumi: Also experience is important. You should experience a lot of
things, as this will show up in the lines that you say.
Q: Can you tell us about this summer's Slayers movie?
Megumi: I sing the main theme.
The enemy in the movie is one who the attack magic doesn't work against.
Megumi brought two presents. They were aromatherapy oil sets.
They had peppermint, orange, and lavender scents.
Megumi: I've been interested in aromatherapy for three or four years.
Now it's catching on, so it's become easier to get the oils.
I always carry some of these around too.
Then they played Kagirinai Yokubou no Nakani by
Hayashibara Megumi, which was a song the for video Slayers.
Megumi will have a new Slayers CD single coming out on 7/5.
[Megumi was on the air for about 15 minutes.]
Akihabara Young Denkikan
In the Akiyan corner, they used a seiyuu CD-ROM to do a
Today they used the
Macross 7 Milane Graduation CD-ROM.
Katou Kensou acted the part of the guy, and Chiba Reiko used the
computer to say Sakurai Tomo's lines.
The setting was: Kensou confessing his love to Tomo.
