hello friends. i am in desperate need of new shoujos because i’m a hopeless romantic and it seems that i’ve somehow watched/read almost all shoujos in existence. please help me. shoot me a message. reblog this. anything.
here’s a list of my favorite shoujos that i’ve watched so far (favorites have a ♡)
Most of the times, when a seiyuu has to voice their character after a quite period of time (of not voicing them), it can lead to number of problems. They usually require more time to remember the voice and the feeling they have when voicing their character. It can set back the recording time and definitely, make the seiyuu anxious and feel responsible for hindering staff and other seiyuu.
During [Free! Timeless Medley], luckily ^_^ it wasn’t Wing only who needs a lot of ‘tuning’. Hirakawa Daisuke (Ryugazaki Rei’s seiyuu) and Suzuki Tatsuhisa (Tachibana Makoto’s VA) were facing the same problem, so Wing didn’t need to do the ‘tuning’ alone *lol*
a young jazz singer falls in love with an established film noir actress and the singer finds out the actress had been sending her anonymous roses so she dedicates a song to her and there’s a scene where she’s singing it on stage in a club and all other sound fades out and the camera focuses on the actress, who’s regarding her with interest
a sixties era student falls in love with a gay civil rights activist who quit her career as a professor and the film is half about activism and half about their soft domestic lives together and the entire aesthetic and wardrobe is dreamy like vintage sixties advertisements
an up and coming undercover journalist in new york city who’s cold and mean and dresses only in pencil skirts is seduced by a woman played by like, monica belluci, and drawn into a diamond heist and a passionate love affair
a university student is on a brief study abroad trip in italy and notices a dreamy lady on a beach in a glamorous creme bathing suit against the backdrop of sparkling water but doesn’t think much of it until she sees her again drinking wine in the hotel bar and looking mysterious and smoky and the film is sort of like salvatore by lana del rey and includes a drive through sicily in a white car
a bored and rich woman finds out her renowned husband’s been sleeping around when he’s on business trips so she plots how to destroy his career and reputation meanwhile she’s lonely and growing close to the sweet flustered maid and buying her things and giving her clothes she’s ‘too old for now’ and absentmindedly helping with chores and asking her about her life over wine and asking her to ‘stay for awhile’
