^Anyone else think the award caption is highly misleading? Of course, with this being Billboard Japan, everyone would know “artist” refers to “singer” but the words “Animation Artist” makes me think more of animators. XDD
Anyway, congratulations to Nana-san! Her short modest speech is… well, modest as usual. XDD She sang Junketsu Paradox, which was strong and stable. What we’d expect from her usual performances. =3
Nana: I’m happy to have received this award. Thank you very much. As a seiyuu and as a singer, I’ll continue my part in bringing excitement to the animation world. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
But this Billboard news doesn’t compare to the first half hour of MUSIC FAIR that aired last night in Japan.
No screenshots until I come across a higher quality version… But let me say that, despite Nana not having a big part here in the “first night”, it was still truly enjoyable (and she did sing).
Gou Hiromi (for those who didn’t watch Kouhaku) is fun to watch (as some of you already pointed out in the comments from a previous post — he’s charming XD). He’s much more enthusiastic than the other singers and simply took the spotlight away during his talk session. XDD
Nana’s appearance consisted of being in the opening theme song (at the very beginning – no solo parts though), sitting in the back during one of the talk session (didn’t say a word, unfortunately), and having a short solo part in the super long song – Satou kibi batake. It’s a collaboration between all the female singers present, but all the male singers joined in near the end too. It’s definitely worth the watch. =3
