Synopsis

Dreaming of becoming a top-tier professional in the fast-paced, competitive world of voice acting, rookie Futaba Ichinose frantically scurries around, searching for auditions and performance sessions. Rubbing elbows with some of the biggest names in the industry, she tries to find her own unique voice and style.

Along the way, she befriends two important allies: Ichigo Moesaki, an aspiring idol who claims to be a princess from another planet, and Rin Kohana, a cheerful child actress who tries her best to balance her career and school at the same time. Together, the girls brave the ups and downs of the entertainment industry—but as for Futaba, whose performance assessment at her agency is just around the corner, her career might be over sooner than expected! Sore ga Seiyuu! is a humorous and sincere celebration of the industry that gives anime its voice.

Of the three meta-anime I've seen (Shirobako, Bakuman) this is my favourite. I like how they portray the reality of working life without resorting to anime tropes. In bakuman the typically super-asexual lead character plus relationship gimmick always seemed so unnecessary, what we have here is something more real, more similar to a slice of life. The three lead characters are suitably adorable in the way that people are adorable in real life, they have regular human flaws and worries. I think one of the things this anime does best is portraying the awkwardness found in any typical work environment, of course amplified by the read more

A life that's smooth sailing is always ideal right? Unfortunately, the path is bound to have bumps every so often whether it's a little or a lot, consistently or not. Seiyuu's aren't exempt of this lifestyle, they're humans like us after all.
Theres more than what meets the eye and Sore ga Seiyuu shows us the things we don't see while showing us a bit of the public's eye as well.

Sore ga Seiyuu is a fun and even informational show that focuses on 3 high school girls and the hardships they go through as they work their way to become well known and top seiyuu's.

Are you chasing a dream?
Futaba, Ichigo, and Rin are chasing their dreams to be Seiyuu, and it’s been an amazing journey. Sore Ga Seiyuu! begins mainly by informing the viewer about how voice acting works and various parts of the industry. If that’s your interest field, it will immediately pull you in. As the story progresses though, the drama and reality overflows out and it becomes beautiful. Futaba is a character that is relatable for anyone struggling to pursue their passions, and her story is both convincing and high caliber.

If you’re interested in characters that actually develop, and interesting plot, and music: Sore Ga read more

Ever wonder what's seiyuu's life like? Well, here's an anime that can give you a full picture of it!


The story starts from a rookie seiyuu and progresses into a pro just like nozawa or tamura (as they already made an appearance). Its quiet interesting and funny. Art Its just ok, it reminds me of the lucky star art and wakaba girls. the ending song, quiet catchy Two are rookies, one is a normal, one wants to be an idol and another is already a pro since young?? thats basically just like the real life seiyuu's, Love it! the design is good. I basically enjoyed this read more
