HakuMyu 30-Day Challenge, Day 24: Favorite Chizuru

This was kind of a tough one, but I’m gonna have to go with Tanoue Marina (of Toudou-hen) for being a total cutie. I mean, seriously, she’s even adorable enough to deserve the ultimate cinnamon roll, Heisuke. My only issue with her is that sometimes she puts just a little too much emotion into her voice, and can sound panicky even while singing… but if I’m being honest, that’s a pretty in-character thing to do. Basically, due to my love of accuracy in both characterization and appearance, I have no choice but to pick her.

…That said, Yamamoto Sayaka (of Okita-hen) deserves an unfortunately gifless honorable mention, based on her voice alone. I adore the way she sings; she hits the notes so accurately that she almost sounds autotuned in a couple songs. The thing is, she doesn’t quite conform to my personal headcanon of how Chizuru looks and acts, since she’s more beautiful than cute and she seems to have her head on a little straighter. Wow, I can’t believe I just implied that being gorgeous and relatively intelligent is a bad thing…

Movie Announcement: Litchi Hikari Club [Lychee Light Club]

Ikeda Junya and Matsuda Ryo will be in the upcoming movie Litchi Hikari Club (official English title is “Lychee Light Club”) along with Nomura Shuuhei, Furukawa Yuuki, Mamiya Shoutarou, and others. No date has been given yet but it’s slated for some time this winter. The movie is based on the horror manga series of the same name.

The story centers around a nine-member club of middle school boys called the Light Club, in their endeavor to create an AI in order to abduct beautiful girls. As the club uses increasingly depraved methods to reach their goal, the original leader, Tamiya, tries to reclaim his position after he becomes unhappy with the way the new leader, Zera, runs the club.
