The Seto Agricultural Produce Manufacturing Business Association and the illustrator Refeia teamed up on a "Gelee Mix" project to promote Okayama Prefecture's homegrown specialty jellies last year, and voice actresses are now joining the project this year. The "Gelee Mix" box contains five different jelly flavors — each of them represented by a different moe character. The flavors include Momotaro tomato, ume (plum), taishū persimmon, pione grape, and white peach.
The "Gelee Mix" set was first offered last summer, and is now sold out. However, the voice actress Mako wrote on her blog on Monday that a "Gelee Talk CD" is currently in the works. This CD will have well-known voice actresses portraying the different jelly flavors. Mako (Hanamaru Kindergarten's Koume, Kamichu!'s Yurie Hitotsubashi) will be playing the white peach character Momoka Amase.
In addition, Hisako Kanemoto (Squid Girl's titular character, Is This a Zombie's Tomonori) will play the Momotaro tomato's twins Kanon and Kanan Setomachi; Rina Satou (Toaru Majutsu no Index's Mikoto Misaka, Negima!'s Negi Springfield) will play the ume plum's Matsuri Tsuchigahara; Eri Sendai (Gunslinger Girl's Triela, The Story of Saiunkoku's Kourin) will play the taishū persimmon's Chizuru Manaboshi; and Rie Kugimiya (Toradora!'s Taiga Aisaka, Fullmetal Alchemist's Alphonse Elric) will play the pione grape's Tamaki Kibino. A release date for the CD has not yet been announced.
