Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu Episode 9: Because I Love You

Yikes the animation was horrible this week.

Okay so I thought Yuuka was going to voice for all the girls, but there was another girl that joined the group in the recording session, who I guess Kuroda contacted to help with the game? I don’t know, the background stuff Kuroda does is never explained so I just have to roll with it because I’m never going to get a proper explanation. I don’t know how many other people will record, but they are going to do it on another day, so that means Kuroda found other people for her project.

[HorribleSubs] Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu - 09 [1080p].mkv0038Well the day has come for the recording for the demo and all the lines need to be done on that same day. The girl from the other agency voices for Kirika’s little sister, and she records her lines in no time. It’s then Yuuka’s turn, playing Kirika the main girl. Since of course she’s not a professional and she’s doing this for the first time, she has little hiccups here and there but for the most part she’s doing her part well. But the problem is that Yuuka wants to rerecord some lines and make them perfect but there is a time limit and Yuuka has to get her stuff done in about an hour on that very same day. When taking a small break, Kuroda tells Yuuka that she must finish. And that’s when Yuuka lashes out at Kuroda, talking about how she doesn’t give a crap about the quality of the game and all that, and so Yuuka finishes her job but her heart isn’t in it. She wasn’t proud of what she did.

She avoids the team and goes back to the drama club, but Kuroda gets news that some of Yuuka’s lines need to be rerecorded. When Bunta catches sight of her he calls her over to talk but she runs off and he chases after her. Before her crazy ass could get run over by a train, Bunta catches her and takes her to a park, to talk. We learn her parents never supported her dream of being an actress, something parents shouldn’t do. I mean what the fuck. But Bunta and Atomu always did, and she felt bad this time because she promised that she would do a great job with his script but she felt she didn’t because of the restrained time. Of course Bunta tells her that there is no one else he’d want to cast as Kirika except her, so after a little pep talk, he takes her back to the clubroom.

They barge in on Kuroda’s conversation on the phone about having to delay some things. But Yuuka promises to make up for it and goes to the studio to record again, and all is well. The demo for their game is set to release the following week.

In the end, there was a message sent to Kuroda from her brother so next week, or soon, we’ll see this guy. The director from the recording studio mentioned him and Kuroda didn’t seem to react much. Don’t know if she has a bad relationship with him or something but it might be that, for some reason. As for this episode, ahh…it was fine? I didn’t like it, but I didn’t dislike it either. But really that’s how I’ve been feeling for awhile now. I’d actually like to see the game demo, though. That would be fun.

    So this time we get a little insight of voice acting and it’s not so easy as many people believe it to be, saying that they could do better and no problem etc. In fact there are notes to be made for certain situations, changing from one scene to another in an instant and the biggest problem dealing with the given time.. things that Yuuka didn’t know or had to deal with up til now, so she feels that pure quality for a demo is most important which ends up with kuroda beeing the “bad guy”. And it’s not so easy to replace a voice actor even if it sounds like it. Bunta probably created that character with the voice and character of Yuuka in mind, so everyone else would probably sound terrible to them. It is not uncommon for writers to create a role with a specific actor in mind.
    It definitely sucks when your own parents don’t believe in you, especially when they are still so young. It is a profound fear and VA really isn’t stable but that is not something you tell your little children, letting the support from Bunta and Atomu play an even more important part. So as to give them back what she received, it will never be perfect enough even though everyone says it is perfect.
    At least we kind of solved the problem about too many characters for a single person.
    About the stuff Kuroda has to deal with is probably keeping schedule, contact with studios and VAs, finances, the company that will help creating their demo and publish so the publisher and I don’t know what else I forgot. Quite a lot besides keeping up with school and such.

    Btw telling everything is good or fine isn’t really helpful, but if there is one thing I have learned in this show, it’s that you can’t really call for support from your teammates.
