Ninki Seiyuu: How to Make a Pop Voice Actress


  • Language: English, Chinese

Production Bloom, a mid-sized voice acting agency, is chronically short on staff. To help out, Keito Nagakura, a family friend of the manager, is asked to work part-time, collecting scripts from the various studios and bringing them back to Bloom's office.
But when his mother is hospitalized over her slipped disc (yet again) and has to take time off to undergo surgery, it's up to Keito and his younger sister Konatsu to fill in for her. Her occupation? Caretaker of Maikaze Dorm, a prestigious all-girls dormitory for the up-and-coming voice actresses and models who attend Seikadai Academy.

One guy in a dorm filled with drop-dead gorgeous women? What could possibly go wrong?

As Keito gets to know the lovely floormates, he finds himself mentor to a voice actress who's struggling to develop her career, the idol of his dreams, and... his little sister?

How are actors cast for roles? What goes on inside the recording booth? And what are the secrets to succeeding as a voice actress?

Step into the recording booth and find out what the fascinating industry of voice acting is all about!

+1 points for this title. The heroines can actually differentiate between a rom-com accident and a deliberate peeping perv.

 

I'm really tired of protagonists getting their reputation permanently trashed as if what was an accident was actually intentional. It's really refreshing to see the heroine(s) response match the actual situation. Of course I still expect the protagonist to get slapped in the face in the heat of the moment, or some other such appropriate response, but once everything settles down, I really appreciate the heroine(s) recognizing the difference between accident and intent.

According to vndb.org, this title has "System Time Events". If I understand that correctly, that means the game will do something out of the ordinary on specific dates and/or times based on your computer's clock. Assuming it isn't a mis-tagging and the VN has no such thing, I'm having difficulty finding a list of what times/dates trigger these events.

 

I don't want to know the contents of events them selves, just what dates and times trigger them. Does anybody know when they are?

According to vndb's description, it was an event that will triggered when you start the game on specific IRL time/date, so if what you mean by event was an in-game story events, it has nothing to do with it.

Quote

When you start the game on a specific calendar date (the date set on your device), the game celebrates the real life or fictional celebrations by playing a short mini event.

 

I assume it was something like Majikoi's game-close scene that only played when you close the game.

I assumed the same as well, either start up or shutdown and nothing actually in game. My problem is I still don't know WHEN these events are suppose to trigger. I don't want to know what they are just what days to either wait for, or muck with my computers calendar to artificially jump it ahead.

 

As far as avoiding spoilers, obviously days like Christmas eve or valentines day (assuming those are some of the days in question) are going to be pretty obvious what they are but I don't want to know what the rest are.

Here's a silly thought. As this is a story about people learning how to be voice actors, I wonder if the actual voice actors, the real people providing the voices, not the characters in the story, had difficulty deliberately flubbing their lines to represent amatures just learning after all the time they spent learning not to flub their lines?

    • The story of Snow starts when the main protagonist Izumo Kanata visits a small village called Ryujinmura (village of the dragon god) to help his cousin Tsugumi manage a local hotel with hot springs. In the village there is an old legend: In ancient times, the village is protected by the dragon goddess. However, one day the dragon goddesses fell in love with a human, which is strictly forbidden, and this incident finally caused the village to be always covered by snow after that. The game then tells the daily life of the protagonist in the village, and finally links the story to the legend of dragon goddess.
    • Demi-humans are treated as the lowest out of all races.

      In a small village away from human settlements, Mia and her mother, who barely scraped by, were attacked by human traffickers to be sold as slaves.
      "At least my daughter could be spared", as Mia's mother handed her a photo and allowed Mia to escape.

      One day, Mia ran into the protagonist as he was managing an inn his father left behind.
      From the worn-out photograph, the location of this very inn was noted in his father's handwriting.
      "This girl's mother... There is no doubt that was father's former demi-human lover"

      I decided to take Mia in for a while.
      Her body was thin and her hair was dirty.
      I did not seek for repatriation from this girl who possessed nothing, but...

      "... I... want to be needed more... Let me service you a lot as well tonight..."
    • Unpopular with women and stuck working a crappy job, Takumi Tsuge sees no point in living. The one who saves his life is the new announcer Yuki Konoe. She publicly declares that she's single, and she's unapologetically self-assured in her handling of men and the barrage of dirty comments she receives.

      Upon seeing her live her life as a virgin who's passionate about her job, Takumi feels like he can accept his own way of living. It's because of her hard work that he's able to go on. That is how dependent Takumi was on Yuki.

      However, one day, he finds out the truth. Far from Yuki being a virgin, she has quite an active sex life. Upon learning the truth, Takumi is inconsolable, and he even finds himself starting to consider ending it all when a door-to-door saleswoman turns up at his home.

      "Hey, Tsuge. Want all your desires as a man to be granted?
      The moment I saw you, I knew you'd be a great candidate… for this invisibility serum…"

      Takumi gives the sketchy saleswoman everything he has in exchange for a drug that promises to turn him invisible. Having already given up on life, he plunges the needle into his arm without much thought.

      (It's not like it'll work anyway. There's no such thing as an invisibility serum.)

      Or so he thought…
