Voice acting in Japan Japanese voice actor or actress

Voice acting in Japan is acting as a narrator or as an actor in radio plays or as a character actor in anime and video games. It also involves performing voice-overs for non-Japanese movies and television programs. Because Japan's large animation industry produces 60% of the animated series in the world, voice acting in Japan has a far greater prominence than voice acting in most other countries.

Saeko Chiba is a Japanese voice actress and singer. She grew up in Tokyo, and married on her 30th birthday: August 26, 2007. She is contracted to the Space Craft Produce.



Tiaraway started out as a fix-termed voice actress duo in 2003, formed after the pair had recorded a song for the anime Memories Off 2nd . Their music, written and produced by Chiyomaru Shikura (志倉千代丸,Shikura Chiyomaru), featured in various anime and games.

<i>Memories Off 2nd</i>

Memories Off 2nd is a Japanese romance visual novel released by KID for the Dreamcast and PlayStation consoles on September 27, 2000. It is the second game in the Memories Off series. The game was released for the PlayStation Portable on May 29, 2008.

The group released three singles and one album before holding their first (and final) live concert on 6 March 2005, the same day they announced that Tiaraway would be dissolved.

After the disbandment, the two members now concentrate on their own work: for Chiba voice-acting, and Nanri singing.
