Kana Hanazawa and Ayana Taketatsu are two of the most popular voice actresses these days, and they both happen to be releasing a new product next month. If you want to look at their cute faces whenever you want, you may want to read on.

Kana Hanazawa, the voice behind many popular characters like Kuroneko from OreImo and Kobato from Haganai, will release her first video Film Documentaire de claire on July 31 to commemorate her first solo tour, “claire”. The tour took place in Tokyo and Osaka in March, less than one year after Hanazawa released her debut single, Hoshizora☆Destination, and started captivating people with her gentle singing voice.


The movie will come in two Blu-ray Discs with complete footage of Hanazawa’s concert in Shibuya Public Hall, as well a documentary covering rehearsals, behind-the-scene footage, and interviews with staff who have worked with her. In addition, one disc will contain music clips and commercials for all four of Hanazawa’s singles to date.

The complete song list is as follows:

  • Aoi Tori
  • Hoshizora☆Destination
  • Signal wa Koi Kokoro
  • Hatsukoi no Oto
  • Hadashi no vacation!!
  • Call Me Everyday
  • too late for chocolate?
  • happy endings
  • Just The Way You Are
  • Library de Koi wo Shite!
  • Staccato
  • Nemuru Sakana
  • meloday
  • Atarashii Sekai no Uta
  • Silent Snow
  • Encore 1: Saturday Night Musical♪
  • Encore 2: Oyasumi, Mata Ashita
  • Encore 3: Aruite Ikou

The limited first press run edition will also come packaged in a fancy folding case with a 48-page photo booklet, so if you didn’t get to see Kana-chan’s beautiful figure singing on stage, hurry and pre-order this movie for 8,190 yen.

Also coming this summer is Ayana Taketatsu’s photo book, currently titled Ayachi in Australia.


Taketatsu, of course, is another popular voice actress who has voiced characters like Kirino from OreImo and Suguha from Sword Art Online. As the name implies, the book is packed with pictures from Taketatsu’s photo shoots in Australia, where she frolicked upon the beautiful beaches of Cairns. Incidentally, Taketatsu couldn’t fly to Cairns due to weather conditions, so she landed about 1,500 kilometers away in Gold Coast, but she still considers it an incredibly fun trip.

Taketatsu’s photo book will be released on July 26 for 3,150 yen, while an image DVD version will be released on August 21 for 3,900 yen and the Blu-ray Disc for 4,900 yen, so if you want to follow Ayanyan’s adventures Down Under, pick up the version of your choice.

Along with her photo book and image disks, Taketatsu will be performing in two birthday concerts, “apple symphony the Live” and “apple symphony the Birthday” on June 23 in Tokyo Dome City Hall. Would you like a movie for one of those concerts, as well?
