*FLAIL*  
YES! VELVET UNDER WORLD SITE HAS BEEN UPDATED!!

This calls for... THE ICON!

It's almost nothing that we didn't already know, although you can see an outline of all the characters. One has a little top hat, it seems! What IS different is that they're asking for seiyuu suggestions!

Slightly new character info. Translation follows.

The seiyuu are still to be announced. There's a good chance we'll accept your recommendations!
* More details here *

AYA

Currently under investigation
Further information to come

KURO

A cameraman who's living with AYA [Note: see previous note regarding translation of the word they're using.].

[Note: The following is a translation of the form which you can fill in for KURO. If you would like to use it and only know a little Japanese, I might be able to help.]

Your name (Pen names are okay too):
Your e-mail address:
The seiyuu you imagine for this character:
Predictions and recommendations for this character:


Concerning your seiyuu predictions:

We are now introducing the characters from VELVET UNDER WORLD, even though they are almost entirely wrapped in darkness.

However, we -- VELVET KINGDOM -- are investigating those names and faces and have gradually started to reveal them.

Unfortunately, we have only barely caught sight of their features and cannot continue our investigations. In order to continue, we need the help of everyone reading this.

We investigators need top secret information about their voices, because their appearance might give you some ideas. Please contact us and report the names of those that are closest to what you can imagine from their appearance.

Everyone's report is important to us and will be safely stored in the VELVET KINGDOM database for consultation from now on. We await your communication.


[Note: Koyasu-sama = ♥]

interestingly if you run the velvet underworld page through a translation program (and i used more thna one to prove this) Kuro comes out as Clo

but I'll join you in the mad squeeing
Williamgenkischuldich on 16th April 2007 12:28 (UTC)
If you romanise クロ, you can get Chlo, but Craw is another option. Or it could just be Kuro, which means black.

So, what seiyuu would you want for him? My first thought was actually Kaida Yuki-san. But maybe he needs a deeper voice.

No, no... Koyasu = dork *snicker* This sounds fun. I'll have to use my free time at work to muse over a 'report'.

Cool icon by the way :D
Williamgenkischuldich on 16th April 2007 12:47 (UTC)
Yep! So any ideas about seiyuu for Kuro? I really want to make a suggestion... but I don't know who! :)
thirdshade on 16th April 2007 13:15 (UTC)
Oh, Koyappi.

I'd rather Kuro had a distinctively manly voice than a woman's voice to go with femmy looks, that's too cliche. I'm getting Seki Toshihiko vibes from him, at least his BL drama voice. It's smooth and husky but still manly.

And how awesome is it that Koyasu can do something like choosing his character's seiyuu through a fan poll because he literally knows everyone and could actually get anyone to work with him. XD
Williamgenkischuldich on 16th April 2007 13:25 (UTC)
Hm, I think there's a lot of women who specialise in male role who sound very convincing. I mean, who has the manlier voice -- Yuuki Hiro or Minagawa Junko? :) Perhaps that's an unfair comparison. But I didn't initially think long hair = femmy. I wanted someone with a teasing male voice. And I think Kaida Yuki would be a good suggestion. Although also awesome? Would be Nakao Ryuusei. But I don't know if he's even in the seiyuu business anymore. Oh! I know! Kiuchi Hidenobu!!

I knew this was why I didn't quickly fire off a random spam to Koyasu immediately. :)

Somehow Kuro vaguely reminds me of Quistis from Final Fantasy VIII. But then, I haven't touched that game in over two years, so I'm probably remembering her wrong.
Williamgenkischuldich on 17th April 2007 09:38 (UTC)
Funny, but seraphim_grace said the same thing, so you're probably not remembering wrong. :)
菖蒲eye_ame on 16th April 2007 16:59 (UTC)
Yaay!
Williamgenkischuldich on 17th April 2007 09:38 (UTC)
:) Feel free to translate to Russian if you're in the mood to do so. :)

Hee! :D

I've got no idea whom to suggest, but I love the concept. Koyasu and his ideas.
Williamgenkischuldich on 17th April 2007 09:39 (UTC)
I have to suggest someone. You know I have to. :) And I have too many ideas!
キャラ エンスイ: 003 & Cat // Hello~!kyraensui on 16th April 2007 21:50 (UTC)
How cool. XD I don't know why, but Chiba Susumu just pops in my head when I see Kuro.
Williamgenkischuldich on 17th April 2007 09:44 (UTC)
Hmmm... That's an interesting idea. I'm not sure if the voice goes for me though. ^^
yoinkmyspleen on 16th April 2007 22:47 (UTC)
Lollerskates, for all the above reasons this is quite fantastic. Fukuyama Jun came to mind but then so did a couple of other more obscure ones who's name I can't quite place atm. I'll have to look those two up.
yoinkmyspleen on 16th April 2007 22:57 (UTC)
Oh, also Noriyaki Sugiyama would suit I think :]

<3 I desperately want to like, use a screencap of this page and draw little remarks all over it. Like, I have picked my favorite character beacuse he is the one wearing what appear to be the most sensible, comfortable clothes. Unless they turn out to be plaid or some random flourescent color. Which they could be. Koyasu's involved.
William: Velvet Under World: Desperate For More Wgenkischuldich on 18th April 2007 15:20 (UTC)
RUE GO THERE NOW. THERE ARE SO MANY COMMENTS YOU COULD MAKE RIGHT NOW.

*Deep breath*

They just revealed all the characters. You could have a lot of fun with it. :)
