Here's the link: http://www.mellow-head.jp/ogata.html

I'm just stoked, because I adore her and her wonderful versatility so XD Anyone else a fan? Anyone else going to jump for that cd when it comes out?

Never heard of her except from you, so I'll be sure to check out the CD when it comes out. is this her first CD?

10-13-2004, 06:29 AM
this is the first ive heard of her aswell, so i take it you like her a lot and you would recomend getting some music by her? well i'll have to look into her some more xD

Ummm...not the first, not in the least ^^;;; She's been doing it over 10 years now, I think. Well, all her life, really.

You'd know her as Shinji (Eva), Haruka/Petz/Young Mamoru (Sailor Moon), Kurama (YYH), Emeraude/Eagle (MKR), Reiha/Matsukaze (Vampire Princess Miyu), Sizer (Violinist of Hameln - the character in my sig), and heaps more.

so what is she mainly voice talent then?

10-13-2004, 06:07 PM
Singer and seiyuu so...yeah, I guess, in that respect.

I mean, she's a fantastic actress (stage, radio shows, anime, songs, etc.), and plays multiple instruments as well as having written many of her own original songs. She's also in recent years pulled away from an affiliated production company (started her own), so...while she's having more trouble it seems with getting roles, I find it most impressive.

Oh, and just got married a few months ago XD

Wow well isnt that a long list xD, i'll have to look into them sometime ^^

10-19-2004, 10:01 PM
Let me know when/if you do, eh? I've found there are usually two kinds of people who listen to her. Those who end up loving and adoring her, and those who simply refuse to look past her playing several masculine/lesbian anime roles and find every reason to dislike her without actually listening =/ Ah well.

What program would you recommend using to get these? Or better yet, is there a tracker that has her songs on them?

10-20-2004, 02:02 AM
As I'm using a Mac, I've had to use LimeWire. However I know WinMX, Kazaa, etc. have had her songs scattered throughout. Just have to look ^^
