Hime's new role has her voicing an animated cat! She is to be the sidekick to the anime's main character. A larger role than she is used to and that her some of her co-workers feel she is ready for. To prepare for the role she decides to study up on cat behavior and takes some interesting cues from the famous cat owner, Senri.

I loved getting a better glimpse into Senri's character. It's nice to see him as a human being. As Hime's friendship beings to grow with her costars we get to see some inte

In this volume: Getting into character when your character is a cat!
Mello ❣ Illium ✮Harry✮ ☀Myrnin☀ Torin Ichimaru

After days of grueling training at Yamad's special voice acting retreat, Hime can finally bring forth her prince voice! Now she's ready to start her next job as a recurring character in an exciting new anime. But her first day on the set doesn't go as she'd hoped. Why do her costars and the producers seem to hate her when they just met her?!

My Thoughts:

Hime has finally mastered her Prince voice, but only when wearing Mizuki's glasses. However, now she's ready to start taping for her ver

I immensely enjoyed reading this gender-bender.

The story is about a girl named Kino Hime whose dream was to become the voice of the main character in one of the most popular series in Japan, "Magic Fighter Lovely Blazers". To do so she entered a high school that has classes for voice acting.

Due to the sound of her voice not being suitable for acting(sounded like an old man and sometimes even worse), she was made fun of and was last in class. She soon meets 3 other classmates who also have probl

This is such a silly manga series. I debated whether to continue for the first few volumes, but four volumes in, I'm now hooked. It's nothing that is going to win awards, but I enjoy having a fun series to laugh at and enjoy.

In this volume, Hime has a real job. She is playing a cat who is a kind of talking side kick to the main character. She comes into work all excited for her burgeoning career only to realize that everyone there hates her. She only got this position because the main character

This series is just… it’s crazy and adorable. Those are the best adjectives I can think of to describe it, and I’m loving it.

There are hi-jinks happening with Hime and her voice acting, and with the Aqua boys. Her manager is a bit hard on her, but helpful. Hime has such a positive attitude, and I really appreciate that. She has a problem with her voice acting, and the crew don’t like her, but she deals with that admirably. She uses it as motivation to wo
Hime finally pulls off her prince voice with the help of Mizuki's glasses. Shiro also gets a chance at voice acting with a small part as a cat. However, the director is not happy that Shiro is acting in this part and tells Shiro that he is terrible. While Shiro initially becomes depressed and winds up in front of Senri Kudo's house and with the help of Senri and his cats Hime decides to work that much harder to succeed.

Another solid volume and we finally begin to scratch the surface of the voice

Yeay! Akhirnya kasih bintang 4 juga. Hoho...

Karena di volume ini pertama kalinya Hime aka Shiro dapet job -meski cuma berperan sebagai kucing XD. Itu artinya, ia bakal masuk studio rekaman dan mulai mengisi suara bareng tokoh yang lain.

Waktu aku ikut seminar tentang seiyuu, salah satu pembicaranya bilang kalau seiyuu yang hebat itu harus bisa mendalami karakter tokoh yang ia perankan dengan baik. Bahkan, para seiyuu itu harus bisa membuat penonton merasakan bagaimana sosok tokoh tersebut meski h

I'm starting to get a few of the characters mixed up (they look too alike!), but otherwise this was a great volume! Senri + Shiro = COMEDY GOLD, and they had TWO sweet and hilarious scenes!

Senri Kudo is slowly becoming a favorite character of mine. Mizuki's still my boyfriend though. Fab review from me, right?
