Aya Hisakawa’s Biography

Other Names: Family name (in kanji): 久川 - Given name (in kanji): 綾

Date of birth: November 12, 1968 in Kaizuka, Osaka

Blood Type: A

Occupation: Voice Actor/Singer/Drama Artist  

Oddly enough though I’ve known this voice actress for some time through her many roles I’d never actually looked up any information on her. Pretty strange considering how often I do research on these seiyuu just to get more insider facts to make watching their shows even more interesting for me! I hadn’t actually thought of looking her up until someone asked me about the voice actor for Yuki in Fruits Basket. And I was thinking…I don’t know who the heck that is! Good reason to do some research, no?

"I hoped that I would get the call for a main character," she said about her Twelve Kingdoms audition," but the call I got wasn't for Youko, it was for Shokkei. After reading for Shokkei, the staff asked me if i could read for Youko." Hisakawa said she hadn't researched the Twelve Kingdoms source material as she had for other roles where she had auditions, but that didn't make a difference this time - she read Youko's lines and got the part. "This was for the main character for a show that was broadcast on NHK, so i was very excited to get that role."

Before she went to acting school, Hisakawa thought all actors needed to do was to stand in front of a microphone and read lines. Then she went to school and found that school didn't take her into a studio; instead, they taught her to perform on stage, dance and sing, before any sort of voice acting was considered. "Those were the basics that I got trained in," she said. "Voice acting is a very specific occupation. You have to know with your whole body what something should be like, but your execution is limited to what you can do behind a microphone - it's a very difficult thing." The imagination comes into play when an actor has to figure how a character should feel. "If you're going to perform the role of an idol singer, it would be good if you could read music and sing. But, your roles may not be limited to being human - it could be an inanimate object or an animal. There should be no limit to the amount of knowledge that you should want to acquire."

Anime Word of the Day
Senpai (先輩) is a Japanese term (sometimes an honorific) for a person in a club or other organization, including a school or college, who is a senior (in other words, a member for longer or of a higher year) and mutually recognized as such. The junior counterpart is called kōhai (後輩). Senpai and kōhai are an essential element of Japanese age-based status relationships, similar to the way that family and other relationships are decided based on age, with even twins being divided into older and younger sibling. A person may even be considered the senpai of an older person at times if the older person entered an organization, such as a company, at a later time. In a Japanese school sports club, such as a baseball team, the kōhai are usually expected to perform various menial tasks for the senpai including washing clothes and cleaning. The kōhai may not be allowed to play the sport at all or have only limited opportunities to do so until they become senpai. More than simple seniority, senpai implies a relationship with reciprocal obligations, somewhat similar to a mentoring relationship. A kōhai is expected to respect and obey their senpai, and the senpai in turn must guide, protect, and teach their kōhai as best they can. Senpai/kōhai relationships generally last for as long as the two people concerned stay in contact, even if the original context in which the senpai was senior is no longer relevant.

Anime Word of the Day
Honorifics Part 2 - Ok this is the second part of last post’s lesson on the usages of honorifics in Japan. So if you missed that jump onto the Archive and study to your hearts content! ^^ This section focuses on the less used honorific in society, though I’m certain you’ve noticed them used in anime fairly often.

Dono and tono (both written 殿) is the title that literally means 'Lord' or 'Lady,' and also 'milord' and 'milady'. This title is no longer used in daily conversation, though it is still used in some types of written business correspondence. Fans of anime and manga may notice that the use of this honorific is not uncommon, in particular you’ll notice this title used in shows set in archaic times or revolving around samurais and ninjas.

Ue (上) literally means "above" and, appropriately, denotes a high level of respect. While its use is no longer very common, it is still seen in constructions like 父上 (chichi-ue) and 母上 (haha-ue), reverent terms for one's own, or someone else's, father and mother, respectively.

Iemoto (家元?) is an even more polite version of sensei used for the highest ranking person heading a school or group in traditional art forms such as calligraphy, flower arrangement or tea ceremony. It is not generally used with the martial arts.

Heika (陛下?) is affixed to the end of a royal title, with a meaning similar to "Majesty". For example, Tennō heika (天皇陛下?) means "His Majesty, the Emperor" and Joō heika (女王陛下?) means "Her Majesty, the Queen" (e.g. of Denmark). Heika by itself can also be used as a direct term of address, similar to "Your Majesty".

Denka (殿下?) is affixed to the end of a royal title, with a meaning similar to "Royal Highness" or "Majesty". For example Suwēden Ōkoku Bikutoria Kōtaishi denka (スウェーデン王国 ビクトリア皇太子殿下?) "Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of the Kingdom of Sweden".

Kakka (閣下?) means "Your Excellency" and is used for ambassadors and heads of state.

Hime is used as an honorific if one were addressing a princess. For example, the anime Princess Mononoke is called in Japanese Mononoke Hime. Hime may also be used as a euphemism for the Princess, often addressing her as "Hime". In English you would be saying Princess, addressing her by her title.

Renshi (連師?) often refers to an advanced instructor. Renshi means "teacher" or "one who has mastered himself." In many styles, it is awarded around the 5th degree godan (五段?) or 6th degree rokudan (六段?) black belt level.

Kyoshi (俠師?) refers to a master instructor. It is the second formal teaching rank. This title is usually awarded to one who has achieved a rank of 7th or 8th degree black belt (nanadan (七段?) or hachidan (八段?). Kyoshi are typically regarded as those who have distinguished themselves as expert teachers or instructors.

Hanshi (藩師?) or sometimes Shihan (師藩?) refers to the senior instructor of instructors. This title is usually conferred at the 9th (kyudan) or 10th dan (jyudan) ranking, usually by the senior leader or leadership of the organization. This title is given to a senior instructor who has distinguished himself as a teacher of teachers.

Honorifics - In Japan, it is common to use honorific titles after a person's name. The most common title is san, which means all of "Mr.", "Mrs.", and "Ms." Hence, in Japanese, Mr. Tanaka is referred to as Tanaka-san. Other common titles include, sama, sensei, kun and chan. These titles are placed after the name. They are not usually used with one's own name. Correct use of titles is considered very important in Japan. In most situations, omitting a title when calling someone, called yobisute (呼び捨て) (literally, "call and leave off [the title]") is considered very bad manners.

San (さん) is the most common honorific title, used when addressing most social outsiders, for example, non-family members. San is used unless the addressee's status warrants one of the other terms mentioned below. San is often translated as "Mr.", "Ms.", "Mrs.", and the like. San may also be used in combination with things other than the name of the person being addressed. For example, a bookseller might be addressed as honya-san "Mr. Bookseller", and a butcher as nikuya-san "Ms. Butcher".

Kun (君) is an informal and intimate honorific primarily used towards males. It is used by persons of senior status in addressing those of junior status, by males of roughly the same age and status when addressing each other, and by anyone in addressing male children. In business settings women, particularly young women, may also be addressed as kun by older males of senior status. It is sometimes used towards male pets as well.

Chan (ちゃん) is a term of endearment suffix, used to refer to children, animals, and people whom one has known since they were children. To use chan for adults whom one has not known since their childhood requires considerable intimacy, less for women than for men. Attaching chan to a modified stem is more intimate than attaching it to the full form of the basic name. Chan may also used for celebrities as a title of affection.

Sama (様) is the formal version of san. This honorific is used primarily in addressing persons much higher in rank than oneself and in commercial and business settings to address and refer to customers. It also appears in words used to address or speak of persons or objects for which the speaker wishes to show respect or deference, such as okyaku-sama (customer) or Tateishi-sama (a stone revered as a deity). Additionally, Japanese Christians will refer to God in prayer as Kami-sama. People will also affix sama to the names of personages who have a special talent and are considered particularly attractive, though this usage can also be tongue-in-cheek, exaggerated, or even ironic.

Shi (氏) is used in formal writing, and sometimes in very formal speech, for referring to a person who is unfamiliar to the speaker, typically a person known through publications whom the speaker has never met. For example, the shi title is common in the speech of newsreaders. It is preferred in legal documents, academic journals, and certain other formal written styles. Once a person's name has been used with shi, the person can be referred to with shi alone, without the name, as long as there is only one person being referred to.

Takashi Kondo’s Biography

Other Names: Family name (in kanji): 近藤 - Given name (in kanji): 隆

Date of birth: May 12th, 1979 in Aichi, Japan

Blood type: A

Occupation: Voice Actor/Actor  

Well in honor of the new layout I decided to place the voice actor for Train on the site. Though he hasn’t done a lot of lead roles he did a great job as Train. For those who know the series know that Train tends to change personality occasionally from a darker character to a rather silly one. Takashi did a great job bringing this across in his acting style. Still a relatively unknown voice actor I really do hope he gets his big break and can become one of the greats. He definitely has the potential and the with luck the drive to make himself renowned!

Just a short listing of his voice acting career.

  • Beyblade as Miguel
  • Black Cat as Train Heartnett
  • Glass Mask as Hasegawa (ep 19-22)

Josei manga (Japanese: 女性, lit. "woman",) is a genre of manga or anime created mostly by women, for late teenage and adult female audiences. The male equivalent to josei is seinen. In Japanese, the word josei means only "female" and is not directly indicative of sexual matter. The stories tend to be about everyday experiences of women living in Japan. Though there are some that cover high school, most cover the lives of adult women. The style also tends to be a more restrained, realistic version of shōjo, keeping some of the wispy features and getting rid of the very large sparkly eyes. (e.g. Gokusen, Blue, Honey & Clover, Kimi wa Petto.)

Bishōjo (美少女; びしょうじょ; literally, "beautiful young girl"), also spelled bishoujo, is a Japanese term used to refer to young and pretty girls, usually below college age. It is sometimes considered the mildest form of fanservice, particularly if older women would be more appropriate characters. A "bishōjo series" is a series directed towards a male audience predominantly featuring such characters, and usually a single token male character, if any. It is distinguished from the similar sounding shōjo demographic by referring to the gender of the characters, not the intended audience. Shōjo is manga/anime for girls; bishōjo is manga/anime about pretty girls, usually targeted towards a male audience.
