Mnemosyne Seiyuu Dolls It Up In Higurashi Kai

The Mnemosyne -Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi- anime seiyuu (animation voice actors) for Lola (Lora, Loura, Laura, whatever), Oohara Sayaka, and Yamanobe Sayara (she has six kanji in her name), Tanaka Rie, made their appearance in episode 17 of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai this week. Oohara Sayaka voices Rika's mother (Rika mama), while Tanaka Rie voices the mysterious, long- and silver-haired woman (Nomura/Takagi) who, in design and in voice, unmistakably reminds all too many of another famous Tanaka Rie character in Rozen Maiden.

Tanaka Rie's character in Higurashi Kai has caused quite a stir and a lot of chatter on Higurashi and various other threads at Japan's huge 2ch forums, from anime boards to game boards to voice boards. The Higurashi staff, one Japanese viewer says, is paying homage to Tanaka Rie and her now legendary acting performance as Suigintou, affectionately known as "Ginsama."

Many others would agree.


Asougi Rin (CV: Noto Mamiko)

Mimi (CV: Kugimiya Rie)

Laura (CV: Oohara Sayaka)

Apos (CV: Ishida Akira)

Yamanobe Sayara (CV: Tanaka Rie)

What do badass schoolgirl Kuki Ageha & evil scientist Yamanobe Sayara have in common?

Tanaka Rie is very happy to play Sayara, who she describes as a considerably sadistic character and a "kowai [scary] oneesan."

Yamanobe Sayara appears to be another one in Tanaka Rie's evergrowing line of antagonistic, evil, and villainous roles: Morganna Mode Gone in .hack//SIGN, Suigintou in Rozen Maiden, Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome, Nomura/Takagi in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, etc.

Anime images from goo support Yamanobe Sayara's description as a sadist.

Seiyuu seem to fit their characters well. Rin appears to be in her mid twenties, but her actual age is unknown. Mimi appears to be in her late teens, but her actual age is also unknown. Laura looks her age. Apos is a boy. Sayara is evil.
