Kikuko Inoue Holds BBQ at Please Teacher's Lake Locale, & You're Invited
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The "eternally 17-year-old" voice actress Kikuko Inoue (Fairy Tail's Minerva, Ah! My Goddess' Belldandy) is celebrating 30 years in the voice acting business. Inoue, despite having a daughter aged past the 17-years-old mark, keeps up the playful gag with her fans year after year.
In order to celebrate her continued place as the go-to voice actress for angelic characters, she's inviting her loyal fans to a two-day overnight tour at the town of Omachi and Lake Kizaki in Nagano prefecture, the setting of the Please Teacher! anime that Inoue starred in as Mizuho Kazami.
The tour will take 80 fans by bus toward Omachi on May 26. A special message from Inoue will play on the monitors before the tourists reach their destination and get to meet the voice actress face to face. They'll join her for a barbecue, soba noodle making, dinner, and a karaoke session where Inoue will take requests.
Participants will stay in a hotel that includes hot spring communal baths. The final day includes a send-off with a 24-page photo booklet of Inoue.
When all is said and done, single travelers can get in on the trip with all the mentioned amenities for 46,800 yen (US$437). Groups who share a room will still be charged 44,800 yen (US$417) per person.
Inoue was also present at last year's Winter Comiket with Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex's Atsuko Tanaka. The pair formed the dōjin circle "Onee-chan to Shōsa."
