I wasn’t very in-tuned to the seiyuu, or voice acting, element of the anime process before this show came out. However I’m quite grateful to have watched little show, because it definitely gave a realistic but enjoyable peek into the struggles of the voice actor’s career.

Sore Ga Sieyuu! follows three young voice actresses as they’re made into a podcast group and audition for roles in anime shows. The three girls all face the trials of balancing school and secondary jobs with the demands of their voices and the many things the job demands of them.

Sore Ga Sieyuu! isn’t a mind-blowing anime, to say the least. It’s production value is fairly average and it’s not incredibly memorable. But I still wanted to highlight the few reasons why I enjoyed it!

Firstly, I thought Sore Ga Sieyuu! gave a very wonderful representation of the voice acting world. The show didn’t try to gloss over struggles and insecurities that comes with voice acting. We saw the girls face devastation in being turned down for a part in an anime, then facing the stack of manga they’d bought with their hard-earned money in preparation for the role. We saw the rigorous, seemingly spontaneous and fast-paced world of changing lines, changing your voice’s pitch, to adapting to what your producer wants. Voice acting is HARD…but thankfully the joy of the job also comes through each week as well.

Secondly, I really really loved that each episode featured a POPULAR voice actor or actress playing THEMSELVES. It is because of all the name dropping (and pausing of each episode to quickly google each actor to see what shows they’ve been in) that I’ve become a little more invested in the world of seiyuu. I think seiyuu fans would LOVE this show, just for all the interesting cameos that take place throughout the story.

Overall, this was a very sweet anime; I found the girls enjoyable, the music fun, and the whole voice acting side of anime a joy to watch. I was engaged and I definitely walked away with respect. Hopefully some of you who enjoy the seiyuu part of anime might enjoy this one too!
