World’s First Voice Act­ing Mu­seum Opens in Tokyo

Starburst Magazine - - Reviews -

Chalk up another rea­son to visit the vi­brant mecca of Tokyo. The Seiyuu Mu­seum is the world’s first voice act­ing mu­seum (seiyū be­ing voice ac­tor). In­side is a glut of scripts from over 50 years of Ja­panese an­i­mated history, in­clud­ing Mo­bile Suit Gun­dam, One Piece and Chibi Maruko-chan. Some even fea­ture an­no­ta­tions from voice ac­tors with in­struc­tions on how to de­liver a line. And that’s just scratch­ing the sur­face. The mu­seum, which is af­fil­i­ated with the voice act­ing stu­dio 81 Pro­duce - who are cur­rently cel­e­brat­ing their 35th an­niver­sary - is lo­cated in Sasazuka, Tokyo, west of Hara­juku.
