Wait, I thought Kizuna Ai's voice is digitally-altered from whoever does the motion capture acting. Does one person do the movements as Ai and someone else supplies the voice?

I'm under the impression that the voice actress wears the motion capture suit and her movements in the studio are reflected on screen as well as voicing the character of Kizuna Ai with her own range.

From what we know it's not her natural voice but it's within her range, as in it's not digitally altered in any way.

Honestly I congratulate her VA on getting so much work through Kizuna Ai but I wonder if she's able to use said work to get roles outside of Kizuna...

Heh, I had the impression that she's actually a man, but perhaps that's just me and my mischievous imagination. Hence why I thought it may have been digitally altered.

Interesting. Anyone know if it's actually the person performing? Or is it something nobody's really that sure of?
