Punk songs? Seriously? …awesome!

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Six popular seiyū (voice actors or actresses) cover 12 rock and punk songs for Pun-Colle ~voice actresses’ legendary punk songs collection, a CD that Avex Entertainment is shipping in Japan on February 25. Among others, Halko Momoi sings Blondie’s “Call Me,” Yuko Goto sings Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and Rie Tanaka sings Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the UK.” The Natalie website notes that the collection will appeal to Japanese seiyū fans as well as to overseas otaku.

I… I actually want to hear this! There’s no chance at all it won’t be hilarious, at least the first few times around.

  1. I’d listen to it at least once. Probably for the laugh factor, yes, but for all we know, these seiyu have a hidden punk side.

  2. The idea of Yuko Goto singing “Smells Like Teen Spirit”… hahaha. I can’t wait to hear this.

  3. Miss the sex pistols but anyway, am into metal now and listen to the aptly named Japanese metal band sex machineguns lol
