What is it?

The Hand That Feeds HQ’s staple is the SEIYUU DIGEST, a special monthly biography corner that has been carefully crafted and published since 2014.

On SEIYUU DIGEST you will find all the information about a specific male seiyuu. THTFHQ takes a look at their careers, covering their path from an aspiring seiyuu to being an active seiyuu; additionally, THTFHQ takes a look at their music endeavors, work in radio and variety shows, narration/dubbing, games and add some sprinkles of random facts for you to enjoy.

The information included in each Seiyuu Digest comes from seiyuu magazines, live events, special broadcasts, radio shows, games, anime, interviews, and, of course, for chronological purposes (roles and years) THTFHQ resorts to Wikipedia although there is cross-reference information with other sources.

How did I come up with this corner?

This corner was created from a simple struggle I once had: as a fan myself, I always struggled to find information about my favorite male seiyuu.

Be it a specific role or some trivia I was interested in, it was always either available in Japanese or Chinese, or the information was too spread out when compiled, or it had bias – instead of facts – written all over it. Yukihiro Nozuyama - biased canvas I wanted something simple, facts on paper, accolades chronologically organized, a thorough guide through someone’s career.

I wanted to get to know the path my favorite male seiyuu had taken and why they had reached a certain status or why they hadn’t.

I wanted to spread the love about male seiyuu, be it the well-known, rookies or veterans, something I felt and still feel isn’t given in equal measures to all seiyuu in the industry and even among fans that tend to either flock to the insanely popular ones or only those with “good looks” (that is subjective and open to discussion).

Taking all that into our consideration, I decided to enable fans with the information they need and/or want.

All in English.

A complete, chronological look into your favorite male seiyuu’s careers.

If you’re new to the seiyuu fandom, or even if you’re already a veteran only now paying attention to a particular seiyuu, this is the right place for you.

A couple of notes before you can dive into THTFHQ's Seiyuu Digests:

  • THTFHQ does not take in requests for Seiyuu Digests
  • Seiyuu Digests are released on the 15th, every month
  • Every 2 years, a massive digest taking up the months of December + January is released
  • Seiyuu Digests are updated every 2 years
  • If the Digest has an ORANGE disclaimer right after the seiyuu's photo, it means the Digest is not updated
  • There are over 300 male seiyuu active in the business, hence it’s impossible for THTFHQ to write about everyone you love. While I understand that you want your favorites to be featured on this corner, you also need to understand that I want to give the spotlight in equal measures to the known and not so well known seiyuu.
  • Seiyuu Digests are only written about male seiyuu that have more than 5 years of career
  • Have fun reading our digests and remember not to bash anyone in the comments section.
  • As with everything published on this website, any offensive comment will be blocked and the user banned from using/visiting our website for one year. THTFHQ does not tolerate disrespect.
  • Reproduction of the contents on each Seiyuu Digest is strictly forbidden. There will be legal consequences for those found infringing THTFHQ’s copyright.
