B-project seiyuu + info (Updated)

 Even though they’re revealed for a while now, I still see lot’s of people being confused about the ‘fictional male idol’ project, called B-project, so I’d like to clear things up a little.

So B-Project is a rather new idol project featuring character designs by  Utako Yukihiro (the creator of Makai Ouji) , produced by T.M. Revolution (who sang songs for anime such as Gundam SEED, Kakumeiki Valvrave, Souleater, Sengoku Basara, …)  and writer/composer Chiyomaru Shikura (Steins:Gate, Corpse Part) is in charge of the project planning. 
3 idol units are already announced: Kitakore, THRIVE and MooNs.
Edit 10-12-2015: A new unit, called Killer King is added!
______________________________________

Kitakore 

Kitakore’s name is based on the members their name: Kitakado and Korekuni 

Tomohisa Kitakado (right) will be voiced by  小野 大輔 (Ono Daisuke)
Ryūji Korekuni (left) will be voiced by  岸尾 だいすけ  (Kishio Daisuke)

______________________________________

THRIVE

THRIVE (I think it’s supposed to be written like that) is a group with three members, that gives us some more upbeat songs (also some very decent rap in the preview of LOVE ADDICTION).

Yūta Ashū (left) will be voiced by  花江 夏樹  (Hanae Natsuki)
Kento Aizome (center) will be voiced by  加藤 和樹 (Kazuki Katou)
Goushi Kaneshiro (right) will be voiced by  豊永利行 (Toshiyuki Toyonaga)

______________________________________

MooNs

MooNs is a unit with six members.

Hikaru Osari (right upper corner) is voiced by  森久保 祥太郎 (Morikubo Shōtarō)
Momotaro Onzai (left upper corner) is voiced by  柿原 徹也 (Kakihara Tetsuya)
Kazuna Masunaga (center) is voiced by  上村 祐翔 (Yuuto Uemura)
Mikado Sekimura (right bottom) is voiced by  増田 俊樹  (Masuda Toshiki)
Tatsuhiro Nome (left bottom) is voiced by  大河元気  (Genki Okawa)

______________________________________

Since they have no CD cover yet I’ll just post their fullbody picture.
So KILLER KING (I suppose it’s written capitals) is the recently announced unit, I think it’s the final one as well. There aren’t any songs of them released yet, nor voice samples, so I can’t tell where they’re up to. However, these are the characters (from left to right):

Teramitsu Izuki is voiced by  西山宏太郎 (Nishiyama Koutarou) (Note: also, he’s so pretty, wth)
Teramitsu Haruhi is voiced by 八代拓 (Taku Yashiro) (Note: He’s also beautiful? Looking at their surname, looks and birthday I suppose he and Izuki are twins, wtf genes)
Fudou Akane is voiced by 千葉翔也 (Chiba Shouya)
Shingari Miroku is voiced by  江口拓也 (Eguchi Takuya)

I was slightly confused with some of their names and the kanji, but I think I romanized them okay… Sorry if I made a mistake!

anonymous asked:

kind of a random question... I was thinking about those fancy ~canon collections (Harvard Classics, Great Books of the Western World, etc) and now I'm wondering, if you were to organize one of these things for shoujo, what would be your picks? like, 30~50 essential shoujo titles?

That’s not a random question, that’s a REALLY HARD question!

Because you said classics, my list ended up being heavy on old stuff. And most of it is really popular titles, I guess because I think being popular and influential and having longevity is a big part of being considered a “classic”. I picked 30! No more than one title from one artist. Not all of these are manga that I, personally, enjoy. Most of them are not my favorite work by these artists. And this list could have been waaaaaay longer, but I was trying to be restrained!!!

Sorted by year of publication:

ETA self-analysis: I don’t put much value on Nakayoshi in the history of shojo (I could have picked Candy Candy, Ohayo! Spank, Sailor Moon, and/or CCS, but I didn’t); I’m a Shueisha type of shojo reader (their magazines make up half of this list); I consider Ribon, Shojo Comic, and Hana to yume/Lala to be instrumental in the history of shojo; I really didn’t want to put Banana Fish on this list out of spite because she’s done so much better, haha. That sounds about right!
