As part of a project that I’m currently working on and will reveal at a later date, I’ll occasionally be given the chance to talk to vocalists and composers who work in the anime industry. As such, this is a wonderful opportunity for all of you to submit any burning questions that you might have for people working in the industry. With that in mind, the first person I’ll be interviewing is Minori Chihara.
Minori Chihara is well-known for both her singing and voice acting, having done varied roles from the stoic Yuki Nagato in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya to the more cynical (and caustic) Chiaki Minami in Minami-ke. She’s also had an impressive lineup of vocal music, including her latest solo single, the attention-grabbing Paradise Lost from Ga-Rei Zero as well as her latest compilation album titled Parade which includes songs from her Melty tale storage, Ameagari no Hana yo Sake, and Paradise Lost singles. Her live concert schedule also looks to be pretty busy this year since she’ll be making an appearance at DaiCon around mid-July of this year in Malaysia as well as a performance at Animelo Summer Live 2009-RE:BRIDGE- event. (Thanks to j1m0ne’s post for alerting me to all this)
Though this blog and my project focuses on anime music, don’t feel as though you should stick to those areas. Questions regarding her voice work on the myriad of anime series that she has worked on are all fair game.
Once I get her responses to your questions, I’ll post them, so ask away!
