Seiyu Nana Mizuki Tops The Charts
As of last week, Nana Mizuki, the voice actress (Seiyu) behind great characters like Fate Testarossa of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st, Kanon Seena in Shining Wind and Hinata Hyuga from Naruto Shippuden became the first anime voice actress to top the music charts in Japan! Most of you know that the voice actresses in Japan are mainly singers and musicians and Miss Mizuki's accomplishment is a testament to her talent and the talent of other Seiyu. Her song "Phantom Minds" sold an amazing 54,000 copies last week and the song is the theme behind Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st. Anime may not be striking the main-stream here in America (like it was pre-2000 -_-) but I think it's about time the movie and music industries here should take some notes from those with talent.
