so Nana Mizuki made 14197196.1600 US dollars....according to google

let me add some commas to make sure I'm reading that right.

14,197,196.1600 US dollars

wow.

I don't really like her singing voice at all but that doesn't change the fact that's amazing. Props to her for being so successful.

Why am I not surprised to see Fate and Nanoha on top?

Sphere, listed separately, and three of the members of Sphere are all in the top 10. Not surprising, but even if you combine all of them you still are over 500,000,000 yen shy of Nana's numbers... Impressive!

I'm a bit surprised that Maaya Sakamoto didn't make the list this year. Maybe Best-of's don't sell all that much in Japan. It's a shame because the album's awesome!

Not complaining....just pointing out, cause I was wondering when I saw the title, "who'd be the top voice actresses and how?" The majority have notable singing careers.

Aside from Nana, Tamura, Hayashibara (and Aki?), I thought it'd be based on non-song voice performances. I don't know how it'd work, but that' s how I felt when I saw "top female VAs".

And Macross F lady is mainly a singer ><'

But wow! No Sakamoto Maaya. Usually I'd think Nana and Sakamoto as ON TOP. Nice to see Hayashibara still on there.

i think that list is about how much their products sale number.
she will get some money, but not all of them. probably 15-20%
Nana Mizuki have alot of CDs out last year. many of them are on top 10 for few weeks.

Not sure how I feel about this, as its combining singing careers and such. That would surely give them an advantage in selling power. Would like a top selling VA only list. As that can give a real indicator on much going on the VA can give you if you are a superstar only in the VA business.

Wow, I guess something like that, lol! Do any Japanese VA get that high about in popular shows or long running ones? Even if not, would like to know if one can make a nice living with just VA as a career.

no, they can't ask that huge amount. They are replaceable in Japan. The popular VA will get more money hour, but not pre show.

From what I understand, it's the agencies in Japan that make bank on voice actors/singers.

Do I read this correctly, that these are total gross sales of recorded music by voice actors/actresses? I wonder if drama CDs count.

Meh. Something like this would never be accurate for anime alone.
