I just came across this new photo of Kana-chan today, and I like it so much I thought I'd post it. (click to enlarge).
In the interview, she talks a bit about two favorite manga: Solanin and Kocha Ouji. She says she cried at the manga Solanin, and cried at the film, which she has seen twice. She has also bought the DVD.
Asked what impelled her to go into entertainment, she said it was her mother. When she was in kindergarten, her mother asked if she wanted to try an audition, and she said yes. Kana-chan was in TV dramas as a child, and was a regular on the Sanma Dai Sensei TV show (as was Yuuki Aoi).
She said voice-acting was more worry than fun at first, as she just didn't know how to approach each character and even each line, and was always worried. But that began to change with Potemayo, where she really only made sounds and was told to make them with various emotions, to suit the situation. That was fun, and she began to be comfortable as a voice actress. But it is a very chancy occupation, and she always feels that each audition may be her last. That's something, for one of the top stars in voice acting today.
This fall, she is in two popular shows: Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, and Guilty Crown.
