AKB0048 Anime Will Include Famous Seiyuus

Announced on February 25th, the upcoming [AKB0048] anime will not only have OOO48 members as seiyuus, but will also include famous seiyuus to voice the future versions of original AKB48 members in the show.


Currently, only 3 positions have been filled, the other seiyuus have not been announced yet. Those 3 are:
Kanda Akemi: 9th Generation Oshima Yuko
Horie Yui: 6th Generation Kashiwagi Yuki
Tamura Yukari: Watanabe Mayu Type 3

Ummmm. Why can't the original members act out their own characters? Their voices will be more accurate that way. The only reason I can think for this move is to get the normal anime fans to watch the show because their favorite seiyuu is in it. I know that's the reason why I sat through countless boring anime in the past.

It's kinda strange that Tamura Yukari will voice Mayuyu, while Mayuyu voices another member. I'm also curious to what "mayuyu type 3" means? Cyborg Mayuyu in the anime? Yes please.

I wonder which seiyuu will get the holy grail of voicing Acchan?
