About

Founded in 2010 (but only active as THTFHQ starting from 2011) and based in the beautiful seaside paradise that is Cascais, Portugal, The Hand That Feeds HQ is a website that gives its all to provide the latest news on male seiyuu music projects.

The Hand That Feeds HQ is the 1st website completely focused on covering Male Seiyuu Music releases.

This website was born out of lack of platforms in English covering news on seiyuu music.

In 2011, the Seiyuu industry was completely different from today’s.

Male seiyuu seldom made solo debuts.

There were barely no 2D or 2.5D units.

There was little to no coverage on any of this – as small as it was back in the day it still deserved to be covered -, thus I decided to create that place that was missing.

The Hand That Feeds HQ started as a solo labor of love for me. From 2014 up until mid 2019, I had an awesome team that I owe them a lot for making THTFHQ never miss a beat.

As of June 2019, The Hand That Feeds HQ is back to being a solo labor of love. Everything about this website and project are handled by me. Hope you continue to support this project as much as you have been before.

THTFHQ works alongside people in the seiyuu/music industry in Japan for some of the news articles on the website and almost always (unless stated differently in the “Source” section) the information comes from directly from the source of the news and not just official Japanese news outlets.

The Hand That Feeds HQ is determined to deliver updated and relevant news primarily on male seiyuu music projects – including solo, bands, 2D and 2.5D units. Reviews and Seiyuu Digests have been a core element of THTFHQ’s work.

News, such as variety and magazines, are featured on THTFHQ but might sometimes not be timely updated (or not updated at all) as those aren’t the main focus of this website, only a complement to it.

I am doing this as a fan of male seiyuu to other fans of male seiyuu.

I am doing this because I want to give credit and celebrate male seiyuu’s talents in the music field.

And least but not last, I am doing this because I love it.

Let us enjoy this ride together,
