This rising talent truly delivered this season, reprising her role as Anna Yamada in The Dangers In My Heart Season 2. Her captivating and outstanding performance breathed life into the character at its peak.

In second place, we have the consistently impressive Aoi Yuki, who continued to astound audiences with her portrayal of Maomao in the second cour of The Apothecary Diaries. Not stopping there, she also lent her voice to the avian character Peeps in Sasaki and Peeps. While Yuki, a veteran and a legend of the industry, claimed second place, the third spot was occupied by another rising talent, Ikumi Hasegawa. Hasegawa has shown her versatility throughout this season by effortlessly voicing characters with vastly different personalities. Whether it’s the lovable and carefree Rishe or the sinister and agile Ubel, she excels in every role she takes, solidifying her place in the top 3.

It’s another clean sweep for The Dangers In My Heart Season 2, with Shun Horie, the voice behind the series’ protagonist Kyotaro Ichikawa, securing the title of the season’s top male seiyuu. Horie truly tapped into his talent, infusing the main character with a depth of emotion resulting in a one-of-a-kind performance. His portrayal of Ichikawa was truly outstanding, capturing the essence of the character with exceptional skill. With both voice actors delivering such stellar performances, it’s no surprise that The Dangers In My Heart Season 2 dominated this Winter 2024 season.

Taito Bans clinches the second spot with his passionate portrayal of Sung Jin-woo in Solo Leveling. He poured his heart and soul into bringing the character to life, to the extent that he reportedly coughed up blood after intense recording sessions. His passion and commitment to his work proved his position among the top two male seiyuu this season and he got what it takes to be one of the best there is. Following closely behind is Chiaki Kobayashi, another voice actor renowned for his talent. His amazing performances as Mash Burnedead in Mashle: Magic and Muscles – The Divine Visionary Candidate Exam Arc, Kiyoshi Adachi in Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?!, Ragna in Ragna Crimson, and Stark in Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End showcase his abundant talent.

Anyone’s Game

Fresh faces are steadily but surely making their mark in the polls. While a few seasoned or notable names are still in the top 10, it’s undeniable that fame isn’t a prerequisite for reaching the highest ranks. With a wealth of talent, dedication, and perseverance, any seiyuu has the potential to rise and claim their glory. It’s a level playing field now and it’s anyone’s game.

We thank everyone who participated in our seasonal poll, and we look forward to seeing you on the next one.
