C Anime Holds Web Audition for 1 Word in Dialogue
posted on by Egan Loo
Koe-Bu, a Japanese online community for voice-acting and narrating enthusiasts, is launching a "Noitamina C Ichigon Seiyū Audition" (Noitamina C One-Word Voice-Acting Audition) in collaboration with the ongoing C television anime on Friday at noon. The two winners will each get to record a word of dialogue with the actual [C] – Control – The Money and Soul of Possibility anime cast and be listed in the anime's ending credits. The web company KAYAC developed the Koe-Bu site to allow users to record and exchange audio files online.
For the auditions, candidates must register (for free) with Koe-Bu and then use the site to dub over the dialogue by the main characters Kimimaro and Mashu between Friday, May 6 and Thursday, May 12. Koe-Bu will then announce the two winners — one male and one female — on Wednesday, May 18. The two will record with the cast at a studio in Tokyo on Tuesday, May 24. When the actual episode airs, it will list the winners as cast members in the ending credits.
Funimation is streaming the C anime in North America as it airs in Japan. In this story set in modern-day Japan, an ordinary economics student named Kimimaro Yoga suddenly encounters Masakaki, a shady man from the Bank of Midas. Masakaki offers Kimimaro some lending money and a chance to be a player in a parallel-world "Financial District" — with Kimimaro's future potential as collateral.
