Nakahara Mai in live action dorama.

Wow, I have no idea how I missed this, but just wow.

Nakahara Mai appears in the flesh as a voice coach, and promptly pwns all the aspiring students of her with a showcase of her vocal talents. Respect points +50.

And that is why, my fellow readers, why I totally and utterly respect seiyuus, especially ones with the level of talents like this.

    What is she saying to the newb at the end?

    Personally I think that was a bit over the top with the announcer thing, sounds like shes bipolar or something. Nice acting though.

    I guess is not a dorama, but a real class instead.

    I saw this over on seiyuu3 awhile back, but it still pretty impressive. It’s really a shame that many people don’t appreciate the talent of many seiyuu out there. Voice cast is something I take into consideration when I decide to watch something (Actually just wrote something about this). It’s not the most important thing, but can definitely push me in one direction or another. There are a lot of voices I enjoy (Nakahara Mai being one of them), so when I see more than a few in a series, I am more likely to pay attention.

    Excellent cameo by Nakahara-san playing herself. In the end, she even told one of the girls something like “If you’re not serious in your role, then it’s best if you leave this class at once.” That totally “pwned” that girl. lol

    Nice. Nakahara-san shows who’s boss. ^_^

    Seriously, I wanted her to do a “USO DA!”
