Two Voice Actresses Form Singing Duo

Two voice actresses from a couple of leading anime shows have joined forces and become a pop duo. Seiyuu Aoi Yuuki and Ayana Taketatsu have decided to band together and call themselves “Petit Milady” or PuchiMire if the short version is more your thing.

Seiyuu Aoi Yuuki provides the voice for lead character in Madoka Magica while Ayana Taketatsu takes care of Kirino in Oreimo and Leafa from Sword Art Online. There have been teasers around Japan alluding to this pairing including a banners on the UDX building in Akihabara with the slogan, “From two seiyuu no one could have imagined, a new unit is born”.
