Morikawa trained my favourite Seiyuu? Cool.

Also, you can't go wrong with Lawrence Kraft.

Their school will be a success for sure.

Awesome news. I bet it's going to be a great seiyuu school!

well since the seiyuu awards where there are no male winners this year or years before when only people from major agencies have won, it's not a bad idea to make a new label just like koyasu takehito does.

way to choose the day to announce. way too random.

Good call, I think there's a desperate need for more Seiyuu agencies especially seeing how competitive it has become over the past few years.

Well, I'm interested to see if they can train top seiyuus in the future~ I cheer for them~

I can't help but think that they coerced Fukuyama Jun in some way to gain more publicity.

If I remember, I think waaaaay back there was a bunch of people who quit Artsvision and there was this rumor about how some of the members were going to form their own group.

Good luck MoriMori.

Axl?! Is it named after his dog?! (・◇・)

Unfunny April Fools Joke? Seems a bit random otherwise lol.

Naraku and LeLouch leaving their company to work together? Must be another plot for world domination through their army of seiyus

Apr 1, 2011 1:59 AM by mikhailn

That sounds awesome =) It's also a good idea too.

Apr 1, 2011 1:48 AM by BlackAssassin
