Final AKB0048 Seiyuus Revealed

The last 3 seiyuus for AKB48's [AKB0048] anime have been revealed yesterday. They will be voicing the AKB48 members in the anime.


Sawashiro Miyuki: 13th Generation Maeda Atsuko
Kawasumi Ayako: 10th Generation Akimoto Sayaka
Nakahara Mai: 10th Generation Miyazawa Sae

And the 6 previously announced seiyuus

Kanda Akemi: 9th Generation Oshima Yuko
Horie Yui: 6th Generation Kashiwagi Yuki
Tamura Yukari: Watanabe Mayu Type 3
Ueda Kana: 11th Generation Itano Tomomi
Shiraishi Ryoko: 5th Generation Takahashi Minami
Noto Mamiko: 8th Generation Kojima Haruna

So the rumours for the 3rd announcement were wrong, but that means that the 2ch poster who accurately predicted the 3 seiyuus in the 2nd announcement exact to their role is a genius.

I don't really know much about the final 3 seiyuus, been out of touch with anime for some time, I'm more active with mangas nowadays. Wikipedia shows these seiyuus have voice quite a lot of major anime roles, so this should turn out well.

The AKB0048 anime will be aired through various channels on various dates and times, but the earliest is aired on TV Kanagawa on April 29th, at 23:00. You can check out the other broadcast channels and their schedules here

Honestly at this point I am more interested in those 9 professional seiyuus than the 9 AKB48 seiyuuus for the anime. But I guess this means that the marketing is successful to bring more casual anime fans into AKB48. Does anybody else feel the same way?
