Sakebe, Numakura Manami’s long awaited solo debut single sold 6,834 copies on the first week and ranked 19th on the Oricon Weekly chart. KAI-YOU did an interview with her that also dug up her history, so we have it translated for you. Major props to Meiru for basically rewriting my whole draft.
This is a translation of Yamamoto Nozomi’s blog post after the Cinderella Girls 4th live. A friend who went was telling me about how Nojo was spamming her burst appeals during the live, and this post actually explained why she did that.
Special thanks to PuchiTL’s friend Meiru for the editing help!

It’s becoming more and more common today for seiyuu to venture into the world of solo musical careers not unlike that of traditional idols. In the past year there have been an incredible amount of seiyuu who have announced their own solo debuts and unsurprisingly many of them are also idolm@ster seiyuu. These solo careers aren’t technically related to idolm@ster but are still often supported by the established fans from the idolm@ster fanbase. Since we’re all DDs (daredemo daisuki “I like anyone”) here anyway I wanted to take a minute to list the recent im@s seiyuu who have debuted recently. I’ve been a supporter and fan of Mingosu and Eriko’s solo music the past few years myself and have found it to be a truly rewarding experience watching them perform both in and outside of idolm@ster. With so many young and cute seiyuu getting solo debuts lately it no longer really surprises me whenever another solo debut is announced anymore but I still get excited and can’t wait to see what’ll be in store for them in the upcoming future. So if you’re a fan of young and cute girls, bad news but prepare those wallets now. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
