Love Lab! (also known as Renai Lab!) is an ongoing show produced by Aniplex and is based from a manga series of the same title. The show begins with introducing two main characters: the well-respected student council president Maki, and the highly admired yet boyish girl, Riko. The two meet in an awkward situation wherein Riko accidentally sees Maki kissing a hug pillow. After an exchange of lines, Riko is forced to keep Maki’s secret and help her learn more about romance and learn common practices couples do. Later on, other characters like Yuiko, Sayori and Suzune become involved.
For this week’s chart, we have three well-known voice actresses (one of which already appeared in a previous seiyuu chart) and two fresh seiyuus.
Numakura Manami (Kurahashi Riko) – she has also voiced a couple of boyish roles in the past. Toudou Yurika (Aikatsu!), Edogawa Jou (Sasami-san@Ganbaranai), Ganaha Hibiki (The iDOLM@STER), Marion (Highschool DxD) and Kenji (Hanamaru Youchien) are some of her character roles from previous anime shows.
Akasaki Chinatsu (Natsuo Maki) – despite her refined character at Love Lab (initially), she can also do well in voicing cheerful and spirited roles like Shimeji (Fantasista Doll), Kinuhata, Saiai (To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S), Itaba Yumi (Senki Zesshou Symphogear), Nibutani Shinka (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!) and Oribe Yasuna (Kill Me Baby!).
Sakura Ayane (Enomoto Yuiko) – previously featured as Mishima Asuka’s voice actress (Kimi no Iru Machi). In addition to the roles mentioned before, she also voiced Mikazuki Yozora (Boku no Tomodachi ga Sukunai) and Buratei Marii (Joshiraku).
Minase Inori (Tanahashi Suzune) – this is her first regular supporting role. She also voiced a minor character, Okamoto Akari from the 9th episode of Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin.
Taichi You (Mizushima Sayori) – along with Minase Inori, this is also her first regular anime role.
That concludes this week’s seiyuu chart! What do you think of the cast, especially the new VAs?
