It’s my first ever Seiyuu Spotlight episode! These will be episodes focused on a notable Japanese voice-over artist. And who better to start with than 90s Anime Queen herself, Megumi Hayashibara?! This month is definitely her month: with a new book she just released in both Japan & America, AND it’s her birthday month?? Well, I have no choice but to recruit my fellow Megumi-fan Diana so we can gush all about her! Listen as we discuss her background, some of her most notable roles over the years, and how it’s VERY hard to chose just ONE favorite Slayers song. All this, and listener questions, too!
