And the winner list of the 5th Seiyuu Awards is out!
I’ll just list all the “Best xxx” winners since the other awards (the Kazue Takahashi award, the Synergy award, etc.) has been announced earlier on (and also because I’m lazy to do so, too. :D).
Best Lead Actor Award
Award for best leading performances from an actor during the year
And the award for Best Lead Actor Award goes to…no one!
No, really. There isn’t any award for best lead actor given out this year. Don’t ask me why, I’ve no idea either.
Best Lead Actress Award
Award for best leading performances from an actress during the year
Aki Toyosaki (豊崎愛生)
Winning roles: Yui Hirasawa from K-ON!!
Aki-chan wins this year’s Best Lead Actress with her role of Yui from K-ON!!. Not surprising, since she’s been awesome the entire year round.
And plus, she’s Aki-chan! Loli voice ftw!
You gotta admit, Keena from Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou and Momo from Motto To LOVE-Ru were awesome. Why aren’t they in the list of winning roles! D<
Best Supporting Actor Award
Award for best supporting performances from an actor during the year
Winning roles: Eiji Nizuma in Bakuman, Usui Takumi in Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Accelerator in To Aru Majutsu no Index
Oh yeaaaah, Accelerator owns with his crazed killer voice. Eiji Nizuma in Bakuman’s another crazy role that Okamoto plays, but it’s a different kind of crazy. But it’s still good!
Winning roles: Toshiro Hijikata in Gintama, Zoro Rononoa/Saldeath in One Piece (both are roles he does in One Piece)
I can’t comment much on this since I’ve never watched Gintama and One Piece yet and don’t know how he sounds yet.
Maybe I should, some time.
Best Supporting Actress Award
Award for best supporting performances from actresses during the year
Winning roles: Ōkamisan in Ōkami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi, Kuroko Shirai in To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
Oh good lord, it’s Satomi Arai. I just love her voice. That snarky voice. But wait, why isn’t Hata from Seitokai Yakuindomo in the winning roles list?
Anyway, go Satomi Arai! Go Kuroko!
Winning roles: Elsea de Lute Irma in Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai, Sanae Nagatsuki in Shinryaku! Ika Musume
Ito Kanae gets this award as well for doing Elsea in KamiNomi and Sanae in Ika Musume. But wait, why’s no one mentioning her work as Nana in Motto To LOVE-Ru or Ruiko Saten in To Aru Kagaku no Railgun?
Oh, Elsea, you’re just so charming. More so than Keima. :3
Best New Actor Award
Winning roles: Banagher Links in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, Natsuno Yuuki in Shiki
Again, I can’t comment much since I haven’t watched Gundam or Shiki. I might watch the latter during the March holidays.
Oh wait, he’s the seiyuu for Ichika Orimura from Infinite Stratos. WIN.
Best New Actress Award
Award for noteworthy performances from actresses who debuted within the last five years
Winning roles: Ika-Musume in Shinryaku! Ika Musume, Kanata Sorami in Sora no Woto
Haven’t watch Shinryaku! Ika Musume and Sora no Woto yet. Bleh, I’m missing on so much.
But hey, she voices Orihara’s sister in the Durarara!! specials. And Yuki Yoshida in Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?. So I guess I’ve heard that voice after all.
And plus, she’s such a cutie (thought not as cute as Aki-chan!). :3
Winning roles: Wendy Marvell in Fairy Tail, Ritsu Tainaka in K-ON!!, Manami Tamura from Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii ga Nai
If it isn’t Ritsu from K-ON!. You’ve to love Satomi Sato’s voice sometimes.
Why’s everyone forgetting about Seitokai Yakuindomo? She voiced Aria, dammit! ._____.
Best Singing Award
Award for singing by a voice actor or actress under own name or in a role
Winning works: Sing All Love album, “Yasashii Boukyaku” ending theme song (from Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu)
Well, yeah, it’s Minorin who won this year’s prize.
Her singing isn’t that bad, but I still like Aki-chan’s voice more! Along with the rest of sphere/HTT. I’m sorry, I’m that biased towards sphere and HTT.
Best Personality Award
Award for best radio, web radio, or television personality under own name or in a role
Winning works: Radion!!, Pl@net Sphere, Toyosaki Aki no Okaeri Radio
Aki-chan takes it away this prize! Of course Aki-chan has the best personality, of course she does!
Even if she doesn’t, I still like her personality! :DDDDD
So there you have it, the 5th Seiyuu Awards winning list! I’ll be looking forward to next year’s Seiyuu Awards!
I hope Kana Hanazawa wins next year with her role of Charlotte in Infinite Stratos.
And of course, Aki Toyosaki might just win again. She’s doing Jun Nagase in KamiNomi S2 next season!
Oh, can’t wait for spring 2011 animes!
