Koe de Oshigoto! Moaning Anime Confirmed

Posted on: May 25, 2010

They look so innocent, don't they?

This could really well or really badly.

Konno Azure, the author of risque manga Koe de Oshigoto! (“Voice Work,” roughly), announced on his blog today that his strangely popular story is getting an anime adaptation. The official announcement comes in today’s Comic Gum manga anthology, and full details about the in-progress anime are promised for next month. For now, all we know is that it’s coming this fall season.

So… if you didn’t know what Koe de Oshigoto! is, let me explain why this is either going to be surprisingly good, or epically bad. The manga is about Aoyagi Kanna, an innocent young girl who’s conscripted by her older sister Yayoi to be a voice actress in an adult game. Yayoi runs an adult game company, and since most of the voice actors who work in the adult industry live in Tokyo, she needs Kanna to do the dirty work. The manga covers Kanna learning the ins and outs of the industry – learning how to moan properly, learning just how dirty her sister’s business is, and so on.

“Colorful” is the best word to describe it, with all of the euphemism available in that word. From scenes about teaching poor Kanna to talk with her mouth full to her co-star, who believes that his catch phrase “My dick’s hard!” is a compliment of the highest order, the manga’s just full of wrongness and occasional hilarity. It turning into a manga really only has two options, and forgettability is not one of them.

With all this information, it shouldn’t surprise you when I tell you that Koe de Oshigoto! is Konno Azure’s first manga that isn’t 18+ in nature – it rides the edge pretty hard with its dialogue and subject matter, though. It’ll be fascinating to see how they handle this one, but color me skeptical that this can sustain itself for very long.

This sounds like a pretty funny concept, lets hope realty lives up to it.

The manga is surprisingly funny, but with short chapters, I agree with you Dom, dunno how long it will last as an anime. a quick short 13 ep season might be doable though.
