15:10:58 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Finally fixed the audio issue....)
15:11:58 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Why 17? A: Something sweet about how 17 sounds in Japanese.
16:18:20 <bay|Ota|17yr> *bittersweet
15:12:19 <bay|Ota|17yr> 16... Kid... 18... adult... so 17 seemed to be a nice middleground
15:13:31 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Hardest role? A: Archetyped characters are easy... ordinary is hardest
15:14:06 <bay|Ota|17yr> Can't remember which was hardest
15:15:48 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: legendary japanese voice actors that inspired you? A: Cutey Honey, Fujiko from Lupin the 3rd... (the VA who did those roles)
15:17:16 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: bigger role in a sequel to (show) A: I don't really get to pick my roles (auditions and all), I'd love to do it given the opportunity
15:18:26 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Why did you become a VA? A: When I saw the animated Attack #1 (vollyball anime), watching it lifted my spirits, I hoped that I could.... (do something similar)
15:19:11 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Favorite scene that you've done? A: There's so many....
15:22:16 <bay|Ota|17yr> (She's just saying some of them, I'm not listing these)
15:25:03 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Favorite character type? A: I like both (listed Lust and Belldandy and examples by questioner)... I guess the big sister is closer to my real personality.... thought lately in FMA, and MacF, playing the bad girls... might suit me better...
15:25:47 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Like to watch your own performances afterwards? Watch it with others after? A: Depends on the title...
15:26:31 <bay|Ota|17yr> Sometimes I look forward to seeing it on air because sometimes I record from pencil sketches...
15:27:11 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Difference between working on Touhou and pro stuff in process? A: Nope, the same
15:27:58 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Difference between the Belldandy's of the OVA vs the TV? A: I tried to be careful to keep her the same...
15:28:03 <bay|Ota|17yr> Speaking of AMG, the character designer is over there
15:28:59 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Brought him up on stage...)
15:31:01 <bay|Ota|17yr> (They are just chatting back and forth semi randomly)
15:32:49 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Just mentioned that she's been working in voice acting for 21 yrs....)
15:40:05 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Continues)
15:41:36 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Hardest part of being a voice actress? How many takes do you have to do? A: Taking care of my throat is what I have to do pay the most attention to.
15:42:55 <bay|Ota|17yr> Catching a cold is like the worst thing that can happen... so when someone coughs (Someone just forced out a cough)
15:44:27 <bay|Ota|17yr> (lost)
15:45:25 <bay|Ota|17yr> (They are talking about auditions right now....)
15:54:38 <bay|Ota|17yr> (She's singing random songs....)
15:57:02 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Anything you can't eat or drink to preserve your voice? A: There are some VAs who watch what they eat. I eat anything.
15:59:41 <bay|Ota|17yr> (More singing.... coming..)
16:08:18 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Lots of video game series questions)
16:11:03 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: How did you get into the industry? A: At the beginning, when I wanted to be a voice actor, I went to an actual voice acting school.
16:11:41 <bay|Ota|17yr> So I went actually to audtion at an agency to become a talent and once i got in, they would send me out with the new actors...
16:12:01 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: What do you think about how it changed? A: Recently, there is a lot of young talent and there is an increase in anime titles.
16:13:31 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Not her) In the beginning, they just did animation voices. Then they started that they needed to do stage shows and then they needed to sing.... () now it's becoming like an idol at one point or another for some of them
16:16:21 <bay|Ota|17yr> Q: Do you play the games later that you do voices in? A: I usually get a copy of the game and I look forward to them, but often, I have to have my older sister play it
16:20:41 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Question about the 17 yr old group)
16:21:07 <bay|Ota|17yr> (Question about whether voice actors read manga outloud. Answer: yes)
16:24:00 <bay|Ota|17yr> Last question....
16:24:25 <bay|Ota|17yr> ....IGNORED
16:24:36 <bay|Ota|17yr> End
