Voice Actor/Music Artist Agency HoriPro Establishes Company for Overseas Expansion
posted on by Karen Ressler
Voice actor and music artist agency HoriPro launched a new wholly owned subsidiary called HoriPro International on Monday. The purpose of the new business is to expand overseas — primarily in Asia — and to scout and cultivate talent.
The website lists 18 artists that are affiliated with the new agency. These include Kosuke Oki, Ayaka Ohashi, OOPARTZ, Ibuki Kido, Kyōka, JUVENILE, Azusa Tadokoro, Teresa, DJ YURiA, Kei Tomoe, Tōko Nakamura, Yui Ninomiya, Kosuke Hatakeyama, Machico, Akane Matsunaga, May'n, Ami Wajima, and Chinese cosplayer Liyuu. Mainichi Shimbun's news website Mantan Web lists all of the same names except Liyuu — instead, it lists cosplayer Nekomu Otogi.
