The new ones immediately gets front stage... Well just because they work better up front, plus I'm too lazy to move stuff from the back to the front. It seems to work.
The Melancholy of Saber Lily Special 4
Pardon the panel recycling, lol. I wanted to finish this before the end of March 30th on this end of the Pacific ^^; This is also posted on The Melancholy of Saber Lily site.
So, yes, Saber reminds me that March 30th is not just Ayanami Rei's birthday, but also Ayako Kawasumi's birthday. She's the voice of Saber and also my second favourite actress. I've discovered Ayako while I was watching Niea_7.
She doesn't play the titular character in NieA_7, but she plays one of the protagonists. The DVD was released by the now defunct Geneon which used to be called Pioneer.
This is one of my favourite picture of Aoi Sakuraba from Ai Yori Aoshi, also voiced by Ayako Kawasumi. I was watching Ai Yori Aoshi around the same time as NieA_7. This DVD was also from Pioneer/Geneon. Later on I found more and more roles played by Ayako and I was slowly falling in love with her voice and I wanted to watch more and more of her shows! I still try nowadays, but sometimes the shows that she is in aren't that great ^^; I enjoyed Queen's Blade though, where she played the main character, Reina.
And finally I leave you with Ayako's cutest role, Unagi, the ferret from Popotan ^_^
Thank you for joining me in celebrating Ayanami Rei, Megumi Hayashibara and Ayako Kawasumi's birthday today on March 30th!
