What is it?
The Hand That Feeds HQ’s staple is the SEIYUU DIGEST, special monthly corner that is carefully crafted and published since 2014.
On SEIYUU DIGEST you will find all the information you need 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. Information included on 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 and when compiled, or it had bias – instead of facts – written all over it. 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 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.
