Anime Central announced last Friday that it will host Japanese voice actress, singer, and narrator from Ishikawa prefecture, Aya Suzaki will appear at this year’s event. It will be Aya Suzaki’s first appearance at a North American convention.
Affectionately known by her fans as “Ayappe”, she has voiced several fan-favorite characters such as Minami Nitta from The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Mako Mankanshoku from Kill la Kill, Tamako Kitashirakawa from Tamako Market, Mikuru Natsuki from Aikatsu!, Shizuka Hoshijiro from Knights of Sidonia, the Akatsuki-class destroyers (Hibiki, Akatsuki, Inazuma, Ikazuchi) from KanColle: Kantai Collection, Selina Sherlock from Trinity Seven, and Kana Tachibana in Brynhildr in the Darkness.
Her role in Kill la Kill as Mako is one of the best roles I’ve seen as a supporting character. The writing for that character and storyline is superb. Aya’s voice just brings that character to life in a way that no other could have done!
Furthermore, as an artist she has performed theme songs to many of the aforementioned shows and more such as Assassination Classroom, The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Brynhildr in the Darkness, Tamako Market and Tamako Love Story, and Trinity Seven.
In video games, she has voiced Elphelt Valentine in Guilty Gear, Marina Tsukishima in BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!, Chai Xianghua in Soul Calibur VI and more!
Azoland Pictures happens to be bringing Bang DREAM! 6th Live to North American theaters. “Roselia Live Vier,” hits theaters January 26, 2019. Then February 16th Azoland will also release “Let’s Go! Poppin’ Party!” Please check your local theaters for listing .
