19 December is female voice actor the birthday of Sumire Uesaka. Uesaka started voice acting in 2010, and was awarded Best Newcomer at the “10th Seiyu Award”. Voice acting aside, she is also active as an artiste and radio personality. She is most well known for having a deep knowledge of Russia.
In commemoration of her birthday, AnimeAnime did a survey to find out which of her anime character role is the fans’ favourite. Here are the results.
Number one is Sanae Dekomori from “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions”, with an approval rating of 20%. Fans complimented Uesaka’s delusional portrayal of the one-of-a-kind twin-tailed character with super long hair.
Number two is Anastasia from “THE IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls”, with 10% approval rating. The Russian-speaking character is the perfect role for Uesaka, given the fact that she can speak Russian fluently.
Number three is Nonna from “Girls und Panzer”, with 9% approval rating. Surprise, surprise. Another Russian character! Her performance has gotten rave reviews, particularly her rendition of the Russian song “Катюша”.
There were a wide range of female characters gathered from the survey. “KanColle” got two entries: protagonist Fubuki at number eight and Hiru at sixteen. Number nine is Pipimi from “Pop Team Epic”, the much-talked about series with a revolving voice cast. Sumire was cast as Pipimi right before its broadcast, and also sang the opening theme song.
From popular works to the topical one in 2018, Uesaka sure has a diverse range of roles.
