Everyone has different opinion about seiyuu's singing quality. While i think some can sing pretty well, I think the majority of them are not that good at it and most of the time the songs that they are singing for animes/games (image/character songs) are just for "fanservice" towards the characters.

I have heard plenty of (IMO) bad image/character songs and the ones that are good are usually sung by seiyuu's who are signed under a record label

Funny thing is that I noticed, that quality of songs usually depends not from VA vocal talents, but instead varies from franchise to franchise. For example, Kosugi Juurota is a great singer, but his song from Shuffle! gave me an ear-bleeding, despite him being my favorite VA. Same goes for a few Megumi Hayashibara or Houko Kuwashima songs.

For seiyuu's who are able to sing, there can several reasons why some songs were "horrible". Like one reason that i can easily think of is that some songs are sung "in character".

Also i still believe that singing still not a prerequisite of being a seiyuu, but rather their voice acting quality and more recently the good looks of a seiyuu also has become an important factor

Imentreprise has published a note from Saitou Chiwa, announcing she got married.

Great news for her. I don't think this will generate a backlash whatsoever but you never know...

Congratz. Hopefully it won't be like Shiraishi Ryoko's marriage.

How nice that Homuhomu's seiyuu got married so congratulations to her.
Come to think of it though, I am starting to believe in the "curse" (or blessing) of Strike Witches since any seiyuu involved in the anime would get married at some point. And she played Lucchini.

Happy 26th Birthday to Kitamura Eri!

(it is now the 16th in Japan, and since I'm only 1 hour behind JST I am posting my greeting as well)

Happy birthday to Kitamura Eri! She has great range and spunk as a seiyu, so I definitely look forward to hearing more of her excellent performances in the future.
