Over the past few weeks, I've been contacted by a lot of voice actress interested in working on Musume. That's not surprising; there are a lot of characters and all of them (so far) are female, which means there are a lot of parts up for grabs. What was surprising, at least for me, was the sheer amount of talent out there.
The first to contact me was Australian voice actress Aimee Smith. She was a perfect fit as the English voice of treasure hunter Mara Kimbry, the only one of the four main characters who isn't Japanese.
The second was Aika Intong, who has done work both as an actress and a casting director. She took a twelve-line monologue that I wrote for the game's trailer and absolutely nailed it.
The third was @bagelruru011, who was one of the actresses Aika recommended for Suzu's Japanese voice. @bagelruru011 (I don't want to use her real name since she doesn't have it in her Twitter profile) also crushed a four-line test.
The Press Kit page lists all the currently announced characters and their voice actresses. However, more characters are coming, which means there will be more parts, both English and Japanese. For any voice actresses reading this, don't hesitate to get in touch. A game like this needs a lot of voices.
Oh, and there will be male parts (eventually), but it will take a long time for those to get announced. My focus right now is to get the primary four characters right.
