Synch-Point finds Dejiko! Voice Actress chosen from the Final Five!

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Broccoli Co, LTD (http://www.broccoli.co.jp), in conjunction with Synch-Point (http://www.synch-point.com) have found the voice for Dejiko! After an extensive search and open call to find an English voice actress for the commercial to air in the US, Synch-Point was inundated with talented women wanting to be the English voice of Dejiko.

The amount of audition tapes and CDs sent in were astonishing. Out of over 30 semi-finalists, 5 finalists were selected - Marisa Dutton, Karen Hsin, Emma Sakaguchi, Casey Strand and Elizabeth Switzer.

All 5 finalists were very talented and it was a very hard decision. After a live audition at Anime Expo and extensive interviews, Broccoli and Synch-Point chose Karen Hsin. She will be featured in the commercial to air late this summer!

The characters of Di Gi Charat began as mascots for Gamers, a Broccoli owned Japanese store chain that caters to anime fans with character goods, trading cards and books.

A combination of cuteness and comedy, the three main female characters (Dejiko, Puchiko and Rabi~En~Rose) are trying to become Idols. They all work in Gamers in Akihabara (known as the Electronic District of Tokyo). This US commercial will feature Dejiko.
