Last Exile Kartoffel Communications #1

November 16th, 2011 § 7 comments

Name: ラストエグザイル カルタッファル通信
Hosts: Toyosaki Aki, Kayano Ai, Yuuki Aoi
Date: 2011.11.11

The first episode of the currently airing second season of “Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing”‘s radio that just started a couple of days back. The three hosts for the radio are Gizelle’s CV Yuuki Aoi, Fam’s Toyosaki Aki and Milia’s Kayano Ai though it appears that the radio members may change with each episode :O They do mention something about there possibly being only two out of the three present in future episodes or bringing in a fourth person so it looks like the radio will continue to be centred around these three members rather changing the hosts out completely. Well it didn’t seem like they knew much about it themselves so we’ll see how it changes as it goes on.

– Nicknames! Aki still calls Aoi “Ao-chan” but Aoi has reverted to calling her “Toyosaki-san” which tickles Aki.

Aki: This is the first time the three of us has been on radio together!
Aoi: Yeah it is!
Kayano: I… Don’t think I’ve ever met you two on radio before at all.
Aki: I have with Ao-chan before!
Aoi: Yeah I’ve worked on radio with Toyosaki-san before!
Aki: That name, *laughs* “Toyosaki-san“, lets get close enough to get over that name! *laughs*
Aoi: *laughs* Yeah! I really want to!
Aki: Being called “Toyosaki-san” is different and nice in it’s own way but… Let’s get friendlier with one another!
Aoi + Kayano: Let’s make up nicknames for each other! What do people normally call you?
Aki: I get called Aki-chan a lot but I don’t mind making a new nickname just for this radio~
Aoi + Kayano: Then we’ll go with “Aki-chan” it’s sounds cute already!
Aki: Ahh.. You’re both too nice~
*The three of them laugh*

Kayano: For Ao-chan, we’re in the same agency and she’s actually my senpai there but she told me I can call her “Ao-chan” so that’s what I call her <3
*Aoi laughs embarrassedly*
Aki: Then “Ao-chan” it is!

Aoi: For Kayano I was initially thinking to call her something elder sisterly but with us as Aki-chan and Ao-chan we have to call her “Ai-chan
Aki: Oh right! We’re all A! AAA! Triple A!

– Amusingly Aoi mentions she calls Okamoto Nobuhiko “Anija/あにじゃ” an old and formal version of “elder brother” ahaha.

– When saying her character’s name, Aki yells out “FAMFANFAN!” in quick succession and the three of them laugh that her name is pretty weird.

– Fam Fan Fan is my…

Aoi: Fam is cool!
Aki: Yeah her personality is pretty cool!
Aoi: Right! She’s such an ikemen! [a handsome, popular with ladies type man] Though she’s a girl *laughs*
Kayano: Ao-chan’s great at this sort of subject~
*The three of them laugh*
Aki: That’s great! Lets talk about how ikemen Fam is! *laughs*
Aoi: I want her to be my husband!
Aki: My wife!

– The three of them admire and love their beloved “Sawashiro Miyuki-senpai”. Hyuuhyuu~ Miyukichi so popular ahaha.

– Talking about each other’s atmospheres.

Aki: Kayano’s got a really refined atmosphere!
Aoi: She really does!
Aki: The refinedness just flows out of her!
Aoi: Yeah!
Kayano: *laughs* I think that’s the first time I’ve been told that I reek of refinedness.
*The three of them laugh*
Kayano: Thanks~
Aki: You seem really feminine!

Aki: You’re the warm and fuzzy type!
Kayano: That’s definitely more of an Aki-chan trait though! *laughs*
Aoi: Definitely!

– Aoi’s goal…

Aoi: My goal is to… Be able to speak with the both of you more informally! [Note: Japanese has a formal and polite version it’s language called “keigo/けいご/敬語” which Aoi uses with the two of them]
Aki: You should just start speaking informally with us then! Lets achieve your goal today!
Aoi: Today?! Today! Okay I will fulfill that goal today. I will “do” it today! “I’ll” do it today! I’ll [Note: Aoi stumbles a bit and repeats herself awkwardly as she rearranges her sentences into the informal versions]
*The three of them laugh*

Aoi: You’re all my elders so I do it instinctively!
Kayano: Even though you’re our senpai we still dote on you *laughs* It’s because you’re cute! Aoi’s so cute~
Aki: So cute~
Kayano: So we do it reflexively~
*Aoi gets embarrassed*

Ah Aoi, as easily flustered when praised as ever~ <3
It’s interesting to note that Aoi’s been in the seiyuu industry for the longest out of the three despite being the youngest by about 4-5 years. Aoi made her seiyuu debut on 2003 when she was 11(though she didn’t specifically become too active as a seiyuu until after Kurenai on 2008/2009) while Aki debuted three years later on 2006 and Kayano started just last year on 2010.

– Aoi continued to stumble over her informal and formal language throughout the radio to the other two’s amusement <3

Aoi’s worked with Aki on radio before (along with Hikasa Youko) on Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou but that was over a year and a half ago and it looks like the two of them haven’t spoken with one another much outside of work. On that note, Kayano, other than talking with Aoi a bit due to being in the same agency, also seems pretty new to the two of them. I might follow the radio a bit more since I’m curious to see Aoi being paired with Kayano or Aki so I’ll probably keep an eye on it. Oh and I’d love to see Tatiana’s CV Kitamura Eri come on to guest as well. When was the last time I’ve seen her with any of these three? :O Speaking of which, Aki and KitaEri were pretty close friends but I haven’t seen the two of them together since Kanamemo’s Hayane Hayaoki radio back in late 2009. Aoi as well is reasonably friendly with her from Sora no Woto + Madoka activities and events but I don’t think Kayano and KitaEri has had much contact with one another. Bring KitaEri on!

    I don’t even watch Last Exile, but the excerpts from the radio show are great. Thanks. Maybe I will just follow it without watching the anime ^^’
    Ao-chan and Aki-chan make up a great pair (I listened to some of the Daimaou radio show), and Kayanon might add some interesting spice to it.

    • Ambi says:

      Haha I can’t count how many times I’ve followed a radio show without watching the anime ;)

      I just kinda try and blank out my mind when I feel the spoilers come on lol.

  • Andrew says:

    Good to see Aki’s back (she hasn’t made many appearances since the stalker incident). Hopefully she still has her usual good cheer off-camera as well.

    Aww, loosen up Ao-chan!

    • Ambi says:

      I’m pretty sure the stalking incident wasn’t involved at all. Aki’s been regularing in about three radio shows every week throughout the year which isn’t too small an amount, but those shows are long running and she hasn’t worked on any other radios other than those three and and the occasional guest on HanaIro’s show which may make it seem like she’s not appearing much on radio.

      Three weekly shows is still quite a fair amount of radio work though and her non-appearance on radio has been going on throughout the whole year rather than starting last month from the stalking incident so I really doubt it had anything to do with it.

  • Nuggets says:

    I hope to hear more from Kayano-san. She seems like she’s transitioning very well into the seiyuu industry for someone who started late, and I’m really liking her work so far. がんばって!

  • yu3 says:

    I’m just happy that you write about Aki-san. I’m quite relive that she’s okay and still doing some radio shows. I’m a little bit worried about her and the other cast of K-On! since the movie is coming this December 3. Hope their movie become success and they stay safe while the movie is running. I miss the K-On radio show.. ^_^
