What is Seiyuu to yo Asobi?

Seiyuu to yo Asobi is a variety show created and distributed by AbemaTV. It airs on weekdays with pairs of seiyuu assigned to each day, each pair of co-hosts following their own unique themes and formats.

This is primarily a talk show that may or may not include special guests. There are challenges and funny corners as well as quiet sections with seiyuu just hanging out in a pretty laidback way.

Up until Seiyuu to yo Asobi’s 2nd season, the pairs consisted only of male seiyuu.

For Seiyuu to Yo Asobi’s 2nd season, Maaya Uchida and Tomoko Kaneda were the first female seiyuu to join the show, creating the first-ever mixed co-host pairs (Maaya Uchida and Hiro Shimono /  Tomoko Kaneda and Subaru Kimura) to great results.

For Seiyuu to Yo Asobi’s 3rd season, Abema TV shuffled things around and introduced the first-ever all-female co-hosting duo comprised of Mikako Komatsu and Sumire Uesaka.

In the 4th season, the TV show introduced its 1st co-hosting trio.
