Hi all. I'm a casual fan of Mr. Hayami's work, have been since I watched Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team in Japanese back in '02 . His role that series is of the main antagonist, whom I've had a big stupid obsession for since late '01 (my avatar is a chibi of him BTW). And he was definitely amazing in that role. Ghinius is the older brother of the series' female lead (Aina), and he's a weapons engineer for the Duchy of Zeon who progressively goes insane over the course of series. He's all kinds of screwed-up, and I find it irresistible, fascinating, and all-around awesome. I'd definitely take Ghinius over any character in Gundam Wing any day, though that's beside the point.
The way Hayami portrayed him was at times almost chilling, especially in the final episode. I kind of wonder if his role as Ghinius might've helped him land the part of a certain predatory, white-haired doctor we all know and love however many months later. I don't know how VA casting is done in Japan, though, so I could just be jumping to conclusions.
Anyway, I have a clip that features Mr. Hayami, along with his 08th MS co-stars Kikuko Inoue and Nobuyuki Hiyami that I found on the Japanese homesite promoting the 08th Tean anniversary boxset that came out a few years back. I apologize it it's been posted before, though I'd love to know what they're discussing since I'm not a Japanese speaker ._.
So yeah, n00b aboard :)
Does anyone know what character Hayami-samaplayed in Hello Kitty? Just curious
Oooh! Hayami-sama's cat, Kaiser, is a Maine Coon! Those are my favorite cats. Very cute cat. Hayami-sama is very handsome too for his age I think
I've got one more question for you guys. If you could ask Hayami-san anything, what would you ask him? It can't be any type of request, it has to just be something that you'd get an answer to. For example, what his favorite food is, which anime he had the most fun working on, etc. The more things that you guys can think of the better ^_^ I can only ask one question, but hopefully I'll understand enough of his answers to the other questions that he gets asked so I can tell you what he says ^_^
If you could hear Hayami-san say anything in any (of his) character's voices, what lines would you have him say, and which character would you want to say it?
He's going to be doing this for his birthday party event, and he's letting the fans pick what they want to hear and who they want to say it, so I need some ideas! ^_^
