Hrmm, I honestly did not know my favorite source of bara and yaoi was that kind of "art" site. Twisted Evil

Hopefully some notable talent could use this so I'll at least know where I can find some good voice acting. Maybe Yui Ogura could draw something and put her lovely voice over it.

Well, for those that are making their own manga, this is a way for them to test what the imagined voices for their characters would sound like. Whether or not the seiyuu would do it for free is something to consider.

I wonder if this Voice-Over App will eventually be available for Western artists on the English version of Pixiv?

That's a clever and cool idea! Some of the artists and aspiring seiyuu can probably collab on things like drama CDs and such since the VAs now have a space on the website as well.

I don't like the name "Vomic" at all. It sounds like a portmanteau of "comic" and "vomit."

Well, the only thing left now is to sift through countless of bad VOs to find the good ones. Easy, right? Laughing

I seriousness, though, I think this is a welcomed addition.

I will agree. I prefer "motion comic".

That site is full of amazing art, both original and fanart (I love using it to search for the latest One Piece fanarts, and they are careful not to post spoilers too!)
