Singer Hanako Oku Makes Voice Acting Debut in Seiren Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Singer/songwriter Hanako Oku (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time theme song) made her voice acting debut in the ninth episode of Seiren on Friday. Oku, who performs the opening theme song for the series, plays a worker at a pancake house the main character visits. The episode premiered on Friday morning in Japan.
Oku's single (pictured at right) for the opening theme song "Kimi no Hana" (Your Flower) shipped in Japan on February 22.
Seiren premiered in January and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs. Kisai Takayama is credited with the original work, series composition, and original character designs for the series. Tomoki Kobayashi (Akame ga KILL!, Rozen Maiden) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ. Naoto Hosoda (Jinki:Extend, Nagasarete Airantou) is adapting Kobayashi's designs for animation, Satoshi Motoyama (One Week Friends, Little Busters!) is the sound director at Dax Production, and Nobuaki Nobusawa (Dagashi Kashi, Lord Marksman and Vanadis) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.
Like Amagami SS (which Takayama also worked on as a collaborator, supervisor, and character designer), the anime is an omnibus work that will consist of four-episode arcs focusing on each of the main heroines.
