Anime North will have a Japanese Guest of Honour for this year convention. Haruko Momoi will be attending Anime North 2008 next month ^___^. For those who are not familiar with her, she is a singer and a seiyuu for quite well-known anime.

As a singer, she was part of a band duo called Under 17 with Masaya Koike. You all probably heard about Under 17 before. Unfortunately, the band broke up in September 2004 which came as a shock to many of their fans. I remember listening to some of their songs in some of anime that I watched back in the day. The most famous one is probably DearS ( Love Slave ), Popotan ( Popotan hatake de tsukamaete ) and Genshiken ( Kujibiki Unbalance ). The unique or selling feature about this group( or Haruko Momoi herself) is their cute voice and you can see that from type of anime that this group was singing for ^__^.

Her seiyuu works where she has a main role or one of the main roles include the following:

Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) as Chika Minazuki
Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ (TV) as Chika Minazuki
Bottle Fairy (TV) as Tama-chan
