Koe Girl 1+2 + Precure 15th Anniversary PVs

Cure CustardWe’ve hopped on board the Koe Girl train after all.  We’ve joined forces with SkewedS Translations to get the resources of both groups behind future releases of this series, and will be primarily releasing via SkewedS.  Curecom is providing TLC and editing resources.

This is a really fun show produced by TV Asahi for the 15th Anniversary of Precure.  It’s live action and follows the adventures of a group of aspiring voice actresses just getting their start in the anime voice acting business. Their talent agency requires they live together in a shared house, so that they can all help each other learn the business.

The main focus is on Kikuchi Makoto (played by Fukuhara Haruka, who also played Cure Custard/Himari in Kira Kira Precure À la Mode), the daughter of a greengrocer, who is scouted by a talent agent after she is witnessed putting on a mini performance for the neighborhood children using fruits and veggies for the actors. Her work occasionally crosses paths with Tomatsu Haruka (who plays herself in Koe Girl, and also played Cure Fortune/Iona in Happiness Charge Precure), who gives her little snippets of advice on how to improve her career.

The show is of course filled with Precure references, and uses footage from various Precure seasons as backdrops for voice testing sessions and so forth. And at least one of the girls in the house is a Precure otaku, and spouts quotes from various series periodically.

You can find the main release announcement with the download links for ep1+2 on SkewedS’s website, and we’ll try to keep the links up-to-date for it in our Series Directory here on the CureCom site as well.

We hope you enjoy!

Koe Girl!

Koe Girl! Title

For those that haven’t heard, Toei is producing a live action fictional TV drama following the daily lives of 5 voice actresses inspired by Precure, in honor of the 15th anniversary of Precure.  The main character is performed by Fukuhara Haruka (aka Cure Custard/Arisugawa Himari from Kirakira Precure), and features frequent appearances by Tomatsu Haruka (aka Cure Fortune/Hikawa Iona from Happiness Charge Precure) who plays herself, and occasionally provides advice to the main character.

It doesn’t look like anyone else has picked up subbing this yet, and we really want to see it done.  Our translator is pretty busy in real life these days, though, and won’t have time to do it unless we can find the Japanese captions.  Raws of this series also seem to be exceptionally hard to locate.  If anyone has a good source of raws for this, please contact us.  The 360p we’ve been able to find is not very good, to be honest, but it’s all we’ve got, and we’ll use if it we don’t find anything else.  Also get in touch if you’re willing to translate and have time to do it right.


Well, whadayaknow, someone else is subbing it after all, and it sounds like they might have found better raws, too.

We just want to see it done, so if they do okay with it, we’ll let them do it. 🙂
