BACK TO THE BLACK MOON'S ANIME EXPO PAGE

Inoue Kikuko is an extremely talented Seiyu (voice actor) who is most well known for playing the part of Belldandy in Ah! Megami-sama. But Miss Inoue also did the voices of Seira from Kaitou Saint Tail, Aluminum Siren from Sailormoon, Kasumi from Ranma 1/2, and many other roles. The voice actress spoke to a crowd of around 500 adoring fans for nearly an hour, and most wished the appearance could have been longer! Miss Inoue has the most incredible voice, soft and gentle, with a demeanor polite and reserved. She was so charming that one young fellow actually asked, "Will you marry me?" She naturally declined but revealed that her having played in Sailormoon gave her the ability to discipline her daughter by saying, "In the name of the Moon, I will punish you!"
