I bet HanaKana is rolling in dosh right now. This season:
>D-Frag! – Roka Shibasaki
>Nisekoi – Kosaki Onodera
>Nourin – Minori Nakazawa
>Tonari no Seki-kun - Yokoi
>Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda – Natasha
>Buddy Complex – Mayuka Nasu
>Wake Up, Girls! – Anna
Is it safe to say that she's made enough money this season to be economically sound for years?
More like her manager/agency is.
How much shekels does a voice actress make for each single contract on average anyway? Obviously it depends on the show and the studio, but we can probably estimate her monetary worth for each season or year based on how many jobs she's gotten.
This is sadly true.
Well, are you saying that the manager pockets 65% of the profits and that she only gets a cut of 35% or something?
No, because she spends all her money as fast as she gets it.
more like 10%
I wonder if there are any seiyuus out there who are, you know, actually smart with money.
>Maybe I should spend less on cakes this year
>Maybe I should invest in the stock market and increase my profits
>Maybe I should purchase investment properties in the form of apartments and houses, so I become rich when I turn 35
>Maybe I should place 200,000 yen in a term deposit bank account to gain some interest
Nana Mizuki probably, as the woman is rolling on cash.
>Seiyuu receive about 2000-3000 yen per episode
>Veterans may receive up to 10000-50000 yen per episode
They're poorfags unless they get a lot of roles.
that's 20 to 30 dollars per episode. Even if it's a full season 12 episode roll that's only like few hundred.
You wut mate?
Most (90%) of seiyuu are poor as fuck. The female seiyuus often do other things, like attending private parties etc to get some money to live on.
If you check Hana's past information, she was hired at a lot of private functions to perform and do various other things.
I'm fairly sure she prostitute herself to a degree.
They earn really shit wages.
Well then I guess we know why some seiyuus blog about their financial problems.
Anime really is a work of love.
breaking my heart man
<------- this woman, whore she might be.
But she's pretty much in the seiyuu, performing job, to fit her interest. Her family's rich as fuck. That's why she can afford to derp around try different jobs and goes on year long hiatus
More like agency gets 65%, rest is for her and manager to share.
Seiyuu's should just pull a Rog and Tyrone service at ridiculous prices to get some easy dosh.

I wonder who many dicks penetrated her just to earn money.
Hirano's a good catch for any guy. Nerdy interests, all those voices, rich family, and you have to admit she is cute as fuck.
I wonder how many dicks penetrated her just to earn money.
It's not surprising. A lot of korean/japanese/chinese minor celebrities resort to prostitution or hired as private entertainers to earn money.
Hell most actor/actress do that sort of thing. It's really common.
And also the fact that some seiyuu do ero voice roles under a pseudonym for some extra dosh.
>cute as fuck
You forgot Space Dandy.
At least she doesn't have to suck cocks for anything other than fun.
Doesn't she love old men?
Old men or older men?
who was earning money, her or the dicks?
I think that's not true in a developed country, besides maybe Murica.
Why the hell do I heard all sort of shit regarding unfair profit share and stupid media copyright from Murica. And the Christmas-song copyright scandal that happened years ago. How the fuck is that even possible that song is hundred of years old. I really hope that never happened
copy right law by it self is anti market, but that discussion is derailing the thread...
now back to Hana sucking cocks for a living.
My relative in Japan said her classmates tried getting into the seiyuu business but it's super cut throat and that even a one or two of them did "favors" but didn't' make they cut.
It could be all rumors about the favors but I wouldn't be surprised. They're the perfect prey.
Heard that seiyuu doesn't really earn much.
So I will say not really although she probably earned a decent amount for herself.
>this entire thread
Dat body, there are really of you think Hirano's not attractive?
Which Seiyuus do you think suck cock in order to make extra money?
>inb4 Aya Hirano
>And also the fact that some seiyuu do ero voice roles under a pseudonym for some extra dosh.
Can you elaborate on this? Also preferably give some specific examples, I need them for uh... research.
Were you not here during the Kana Hana domination of 2011? She's got more than enough by now even with the fees she pays to managers and agencies
So many people thinking other countries are economically backwards in the same way as America
I don't like her face and she's kind of a slut so that's a turn off as well.
Seiyuu work for almost peanuts, so probably no. She has many live events though, thanks to her popularity, so that should pay much better.
Like drama CDs, but they sweet talk and do moaning sounds, liking, fapping noises. Basically for lonely men who will pay good money for it, I used to have a link to it but that's long gone after my computer broke down.
What I want to know is given these conditions why would anyone want to get into that industry. I mean what's the benefit? Shit pay, unsure when you'll get your next gig if you even get one, inability to move on to other more 'respected' forms of media, no recognition (maybe a little recognition by otaku, but they'll either forget or turn on you the first chance they get).
Seriously, why would anyone put themselves through that?
I was wondering if they specifically do erogames. Is there some kind of site or archive for eroge seiyuu?
You're not really taking anything you read in this thread seriously, are you?
Because it's fun, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4z4O_NGHlI
Itou Shizuka -> Misaki Rina (pseudonym)
google is your friend, most of it is correct.
Sleeps with the band, annoying as fuck voice, dumb, attention whore
>Sporatic jobs/No job security
>Cannot date and basically waste away the best looking years of your life
>Women in your country over age 28 are considered leftovers
>Stalkers up the wazoo going through your trash

>Show business so more likely to encounter people who'll take advantage of you if not careful
>No fall back career b/c likely didn't go to university and again no husbando/bf
Too love anime that much you have to be imbalanced or something.
Why do you think they all sing character songs and anything else that the anime want to produce? Money nigga.
Some people just love their work, crazy I know.
>inability to move on to other more 'respected' forms of media, no recognition
That's not true. Good seiyuu become singers, idols, may host some TV shows, act in movies, etc, etc. There are many different choices.
They have no choice. It's always amusing to observe how often (and long) they wear the same clothes.
There's money to be made, but it requires a better talent than just auditioning for every show ever and having a moe voice.
People taking advantage of girls who are away from their families at a school for performing arts and don't really know how to defend themselves is certainly an issue. Sucking cocks for shitty anime roles, not so much unless you're Yukana.
Also maybe they didn't make it because they're unmarketable sluts.
Yeah. You can stop talking out of your ass any day now. Actually, don't stop. Retards deserve to be filled with misinformation.
Most of that only applies to idols who chose to maintain and sell their the pure image, not seiyuu in general.
Clearly Japan is a wonderful place and they can do no wrong.
check it yourself weeaboo
Not only unmarketable but they're nippon girls and likely to be more hush than say bakagaijins.
predators can smell it.
>you will never promise a cute seiyuu a chance in order to bone her and then the part was taken
Reminds me of that one redlight doujin
>minimum for new seiyuu is about 15k yen per episode, but can be as high as 45k depending on the activity
>10 episodes per month = 150k-450k yen
That's actually pretty decent.
If HanaKana want to surpass Aya Hirano, she need to sleep with a Drummer.
unless you play bass
If you're wanted enough have multiple roles in a season yes. Trying to survive in Tokyo with 150k a month would be hilarious unless you live with family to split the cost.
It's pretty iffy on being the case for seiyuu overall. 2D otaku don't exactly have the most narrow or strict standards and aren't as obsessive about 3D girls.
Hirano backlash is because she just did that good of a job of pissing people off.
Rie Tanaka figuratively telling her fans to fuck off when she got married was seriously the wrong way to go as well.
Even with like YuiKaori who originally came from an idol group as long as you weren't being a bitch the vast majority of people would probably be accepting of whatever and you aren't going to get kicked out on the street because you aren't (at least allegedly) living 24/7 for the group like a dedicated idol.
The opposite seems to be more of a problem on /a/. Some people are so desperate to not be seen as weeaboos that they make Japan out to be shittier than it is. The whole grimdark=reality approach is just as stupid as thinking they can do no wrong.
This would be interesting to see.
>hordes of neckbeards from /a/ pay them $5 each to get them to say a 20 second clip
>"you're favourite chinese cartoon a shit, onii-chan"
>"it can't be helped, we'll have to use that"
Jesus Christ, I don't see why those indie one-man animators out there don't just rent a seiyuu for some extra content. That's fucking cheap.
>you will never hire kanahana to your private function and enjoy having her call you ECCHI in an innocentlewd voice as you coat her in semen along with your closest fat old businessman associates
There is professionally voiced indie animation out there.
That's frankly about the financial level most PC VNs operate at as well.
Costs of living in Tokyo are pretty damn high. Unless they lived in a smaller town like Sapporo it would be pretty difficult to support yourself and lead a decent quality of life, and I really doubt that people are able to find seiyuu-related work in places like Sapporo.
But they do?
>Hanakana is in a lot of show this season.
Is this your first season watching anime, or have you just not been paying attention over the last three years.
She's in a lot of shows EVERY season.
I wonder how many female seiyuus that one director, who pulled that prank which became a scandal, coated and then denied them a role.
>as you coat her in semen along with your closest fat old businessman associates
There are at least 25 sad pandas that I can name which feature such a storyline.
Still a better career than OL.
In a similar vein the vast majority of professional athletes do not profit well from it either.
the censor makes this photo look all the more sinister
Not a fair comparison, she actually has her job as a singer.
What about male seiyuus?
>Inclination Fix: You can select according to your preference. You can take whichever you like.
What the fuck does this even mean? Why to Nipponian T-shirts never make sense?
Is this in reference to the kinds of jobs you can hire her for? That you can select things for her to do "according to your preference", wink wink?
So do most seiyuu worth a shit these days.
Of course she does sell more than like the next 10 combined unless Yukarin is having a good year, depending how you add up Sphere.
That is not a euphemism really. Similar example, Richard Hammond of Top Gear hosts puny local fairs for extra bucks, which is a far cry from a globally renown TV programs like Top Gear.
Fukujun pleasured many christmas cakes to get where he is today
by that I mean recording dirty erotic voice messages for fujoshi at publicity events
Most saturated Seiyuu in the industry since Kugimiya. Her characters are all sluts, too
You do realise he was hosting those fairs before he got on Top Gear, right?
American copyright laws are beyond fucked up because of corporate lobbyists. They are stupidly skewered in favour of the big companies who can afford throw money on lawsuits.
There's a different between putting out a couple CDs or two as tie ins with anime and maybe the occasional solo albums and being a full time singer that happen to also have VA as a job as well.
Case in point, OnoD released non-anime albums as well but most of his work still from being an anime VA, as opposed to Nana Mizuki.
Income not only from this things
CD drama, radio show, off-air show, music CD, Idol group based on seiyuu.
Being seiyuu just the starter
Hey, if I was the male lead singer of an otherwise girl dominated band I'd sleep with my band too.
It's like my duty as the lead singer.
>Maybe I should place 200,000 yen in a term deposit bank account to gain some interest
And? He still does them even after/during Top Gear.
My point was that I'm not saying whoring out doesn't exist but that not everything is about whoring out, hence my post about how private functions may not be a euphemism.
He also does radio, or did, and hosts other TV shows like "When Balloon Animals Attack" type stuff and animal/nature shows. Probably does commercials too. But he owns a shit lot of expensive cars.
What's so funny? It's the equivalent of a university student saving up his arbeit money and putting $5000 in a term deposit account. In 6 months time, that $5000 becomes $5350, which means that he can spend $350 on ber, and rinse and repeat the $5000 in the bank again for the next half year.
OnoD is a movie star now.
**he can spend $350 on beer
OnoD and Kamiya Hiroshi
>not having loadsamone
More along the lines of when white people get chinese tattoos.
Dunno, different anon here. I know for sure Wakamoto has voiced roles in some of the HOVA adaptations of of Lilith-soft titles like Dark Knight Ingrid (as Kyounosuke Takashi). ANN even confirms it.
Then watch the OVA itself and it's the usual Wakamoto doing the Wakamoto
If anyone wants to know the source of the original unedited image: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegations_of_biological_warfare_in_the_Korean_War
Sugita has some roles in hentai.
Shizuka Ito and Yuu Asakawa do ero games.
>dat lazy eye
No thank you
Somehow that makes the image even better.
>Maybe I should purchase investment properties in the form of apartments and houses
jesus that mentality
The only difference is whether you can sell a live tour out every year and your voice acting is highly paid enough to appear in relatively few roles.
Although there was a couple concert BDs and a music video BD in there, besides Symphogear character songs Nana only released 5 songs last year including both TM Revolution collaborations. Ayana Taketatsu had an album, two solo singles, a petit milady single, and two petit milady songs released on their own used for promotional campaigns. Aoi Yuuki had the petit milady stuff and a mini-album. Mikako Komatsu had 2 singles and an album. Sumire Uesaka had 2 singles and an album came out January 8th. Sachika Misawa had a single and a mini-album (you could argue the latter is an Index character song album I guess). Yuka Iguchi had 3 singles. Hanazawa 2 singles/1 album. I could go on for a while.
I admit that I was a little hurt when I found out, but I'm over it now.
>everyone is 3DPD except for muh seiyuu's and JAV's
Seiyuufags are the worst, that's why they are mostly contained in /jp/.
I always understood that as being limited to looks and behaiviour, and exlcuding their voice.
Yuki is cuter than all of your slutty female seiyuu, and I'm a straight man.
Wakamoto getting really old now.
Oh, yeah. My seiyuu can beat up your pussy seiyuu.
any AV about ex idol/VA?
Female seiyuu are disposable like trash, they get new idols every year and HanaKana will probably be irrelevant wil 2-3 years. Male seiyuus have a little more durability since there's names in the industry like Koyasu, Ishida, Inoue Kazuhiko and Toriumi who have been in the industry for more than 15+ years and still get bunch of roles.
One word: Kiku
Kotono Mitsuishi also still has tons of work after -twenty five- years in voice acting.
Yukari Tamura, Yui Horie, and Nana Mizuki are all still idol seiyuu beyond the 15 year mark.
The plural is seiyuu.
>Mean while Yuu Kobayashi.
Who is the next Kana Hana that we'll never hear the end of in 5 years?
Are the other 10% singers like Nana Mizuka and Yoshino Nanjou?
And yet I still love Minako better than her. Sorry, Hanazawafags.
Dear god, he now looks exactly like Matsudaira from Gintama. That man even grows old in the manliest way possible
I'm guessing HanaKana doesn't have a singing career or anything like that that would take time away from voicing things
How many dicks did she suck to get so many roles?
She released an album and a new single lately (Seki-kun OP)
All these old farts who are producers and managers and greenlit shit like Guilty Crown and IS are making millions of dollar every year, while VAs live from scrapes.
How does this make you feel?
>Seiyuu's literally can't afford to buy their own BDs
They also have to be famous enough to get record deals and eventually concerts
The really famous ones get their pictures taken in certain magazines wearing ridiculous outfits or just standard fashion fare so I guess it's also a source of income. I kind of sometimes think these seiyuu magazines are actually thinly-veiled fashion mags.
How about VAs that has roles in games wasn't hanakana in neptunia and it was very poplar on the otaku west. Didn't she get lodsadosh on that
Talking about Seiyuus doing H roles. Does anyone here know who Anzu Hana is in real life? At first I thought it was Rie Kugimiya, but now I'm not too sure.
You retard, he does that because he WANTS to not because he needs the extra money.
Wiki says Hisako Kanemoto.
While HanaKana is doing tons of shows, there's only really one question.
Will she win any of them?
Also, I want to date HanaKana and just have her talk to me for hours at a time. Nothing else.
>>Maybe I should spend less on cakes this year
Not fucking happening
>not because he needs the extra money
Did you perhaps miss out on the digs Clarkson made about how Hammond needed to save up for a new car?
Also, how do you know that the VAs aren't doing something just because they enjoy it in addition to needing the pay?
But sure, keep nitpicking faggot.
>Not Yumiko Kobayashi
Risa Taneda and/or neo-StylipS, maybe? How about everyone in Milky Holmes who isn't Suzuko Mimori?
