It has become a recent trend in anime to become more self analytical about the industry. A fresh way to look at things many would say, but beyond that, it offers a humorous look into a world many, as fans, are curious about. This particular show wraps up the “seiyuu” (voice actor) lifestyle in a cute little moe package and serves to us on a weekly basis!
Being a cute, moe anime – we get a cute moe OP as well! “Sore ga Seiyuu!” by Earphones is the track that plays as we watch the visuals. The animation is fairly reminiscent of the recent Haruhi Suzumiya anime, but that’s a good thing! Click below to watch the full video.
Equally adorable in its own right, the cast sing the ED: “Anata no Omimi ni Plug In!” by Earphones, as visuals from the episode play on a screen and chibi cutouts sing the track. It’s fairly cute! Watch it by clicking below.
