This is my write-up for Hayami-san’s birthday event on Sunday, August 29th, 2010 called “The Miracle of August." Morikawa Toshiyuki and Horiuchi Kenyuu also came as guests.
Read to find out what Hayami-san used to be embarrassed about, what Horiuchi-san did to make it so that Hayami-san can't go to his favorite bar anymore, what country Hayami-san said that he'll be living in in 10 years, and what Hayami-san did to give us "fan service."
If you're only planning on reading one write-up . . . read this one. (Trust me.) This one also contains about 6 pages or so of direct quotes from Hayami-san along with pictures.
I spent the day with Hayami-san in Tokyo for his 30th Anniversary Event this past Sunday, and I did a write-up of everything that happened. I've tried to include as much detail and as many quotes as I could remember. Follow the fake-cut to my journal to read it ^_^
Hayami-san picked his favorite places in Tokyo, and took us on a surprise tour of those places. We had no idea where we were being taken until we got to each place. He thought it would be fun if he did it this way. ^_^
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 ._.
I did a write-up of Hayami-san's Birthday Party & Live Show. Just follow the fake cut to my LJ. I took notes all through out the events, so I've included as many exact and direct quotes from him as I could for you guys. ^_^
I first heard Hayami-sama's voice when I watched an OVA called Ai no Kusabi. Ever since then, I've seen just about every voice-over work he's done and he is the best Japanese singer I've ever heard. I'm so glad I found this community! Best of luck to him and his lovely wife.
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 ^_^
