Takahashi Mikako’s PayoPayo with Hanazawa Kana as a guest. This is a pretty old radio episode that aired over 2 years ago. I… Don’t think Kana has guested ever since but I’m not exactly sure.
- First time they met was on the first season of ToLoveRu where Mikako came to a recording for a random character. She had known that they were going to work together on the upcoming Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na koto anime so she greeted her and spoke with her a bit. They didn’t really have a proper conversation till the recording of the first episode though.
- Kana loved Honey and Clover so when she saw Mikako she was thinking “Ah.. Yamada’s here with me…!!” She had brought some Honey and Clover Yamada merchandise along and she asked Mikako to sign it :O Mikako was really surprised :D
- About how Kana came into the seiyuu industry
Apparently she attended an audition when she was 14 years old and it all built up from there. That was also when she recieved her first seiyuu work.
- Kana had debuted with Kitamura Eri who was 15 at the time, and though she didn’t speak much with her back then, she really admired how good she was even though she was only one year older than her.
- When Mikako found out KitaEri was only 1 year older than Kana, she was really surprised at how young she was, saying that she was really mature for her age since she didn’t seem that young.
- Mikako asks Kana if she watched many anime, Kana replies saying she yes and she loves them saying Fullmetal Alchemist was her favourite anime.
- Kana’s thoughts about the seiyuu industry once entering it.
Kana: “Watching it and actually doing it is completely on a different scale! I really had no idea what to do at the start, there were many techniques and things I didn’t know about”
- Random trivia: Kana loves eating the skin from the baked sweet potatoes. She also loves dried sweet potatoes enough that she made a small character based on it lol.
- The staff brought some dried sweet potato for her as a present and she was delighted, she exaggeratedly called the producer a wonderful person for it lol.
Kana was really sweet here, she’s become quite S and assertive since then :O
Seeing the guest list of old PayoPayo episodes make me despair since I’ve stopped following the show and I’m not sure how I can get a hold of them and there are so many I would want to listen to. *Checks* Itou Kanae’s the latest guest to appear :O
Ahhh Hikasa Youko at #446, Tamura Yukari at #447 and moreee! Despair!! Curse you Animate.tv for not using RSS!!
