[ Anime A to Z ] ~T~ Taketatsu Ayana

Is it possible for someone to be as cute as the characters they give a voice to? Often times, yes. When I first saw K-ON!, Azusa quickly became one of my favorite characters, in part because of her voice.

Azusa from K-ON!

Providing that voice is Ayana Taketatsu, who was nearly twenty years old when the anime series debuted in 2009. K-ON! being a series about a band, I got to hear her sing occasionally in some of the show’s songs. A few years after the show aired, she became a singer in her own right, both as a solo artist and as part of the duo Petit Milady with fellow seiyuu Aoi Yuki. As one might expect, the songs from both of these projects are extremely lighthearted and cute. Now nearly thirty, Taketatsu is still emitting cute waves in her music and photoshoots.
