If you are finished with the demo, please spare several minutes to fill in this questionnaire we’ve prepared to gather feedback. Feedback matters a lot to us, and it’d be great to have as many feedback as possible <3
The new demo contains most of the features that you can see in final release, with the only exception being foreplay mode (and you’ll not be close enough with the guys to have sex with them anyway :p)
You can try out the new demo now! Go to our itch.io page to be redirected to our demo download!
I'll post more about Seiyuu Danshi here for the sake of those who haven't heard anything about it =)
What is Seiyuu Danshi?
Seiyuu Danshi is a Japanese-style Visual Novel / Dating sim centering around life as a voice actor. In this game, you'll play as a newbie voice actor who strives to win for the year-end Seiyuu Award. On his way to reach his goal, though, he will still live his daily life and YOU get to make the choices on how he should spend his days!
The game is highly interactive and there's no usual restriction in plot that you get in ordinary VNs. If you don't feel like working, feel free to slack. If you feel like being single for the rest of your life, yes it can be done! Just keep in mind that ALL your actions matter and will decide how the game ends!
You'll play as a newbie voice actor who's on the verge of being kicked out from his agency. Going back home is not an option, and thus begin his journey to become a good-enough-voice-actor-to-not-get-kicked-out-of-the-agency! Join his journey and woo some guys on the way!
REVERSIBLE ROLESIn Seiyuu Danshi, you are able to choose whether you want to TOP or BOTTOM. Even better, you are NOT restricted to one role in a relationship and can freely choose your preferred role in EACH intercourse!
FOREPLAY MODEAre you tired of those intercourses without preparation? In Seiyuu Danshi, you have to go on "FOREPLAY MODE" and prepare your partner before the actual intercourse! Each character has different preferences in what parts they want to stimulate! Don't forget to keep your role preferences in mind when stimulating your partner!
Each character will also have several obtainable *kinky* costumes that you can use: such as bunny costume / maid / cat costume / doctor cosplay / nurse cosplay, etc etc! Some of the costumes can be seen here! (MOAR TO GO!)
DRESS-UP & UNDERWEAR OPTIONBefore going on a date, you can choose which clothes you want to wear. There'll be 500+ kinds of clothes consists of casual, preppy, funky, elegance and sporty. You can also choose which underwear you want to wear! (or just go commando :p)
ROAM THE TOWN Our game features the clickable town map that you can travel through. Spend time with your love or spend your own sweet time in the nearby cafe... it's your choice.
TALKABLE NPC Bored to only talk with your love interests? In this game, all NPCs are talk-able! Drop by to chit-chat or even take on their requests to gain some reward!
LOVERS LIFE Unlike other dating sims, in which the game ends after the main character gets a lover, in this game you can still play even after you get a lover! Not only experiencing the intimate moments, you also get to argue and fight like actual couple!
DECORATE YOUR ROOM In this game, you can also decorate your room to your liking! Change your wallpaper, floorings, add furnitures, add decorations... It's all in your hands!
JOB SYSTEM In this game, there is a unique range of voice acting jobs, starting from anime gigs to BL game works, whether to accept them or not is your choice! Keep in mind, though, that you have to go on an audition first before you get the job! Raise your stat, go on audition, and become a top voice actor in this game!
DATE SYSTEM On weekends, you can take on the guys on a date on various date locations. Spend your time and energy carefully so that you can increase the most affection!
SOCIAL MEDIA SYSTEM Bored and don't know what to do in-game? Wanna *stalk* your crush's social media to kill boredom? Well you can! In this game, we have a social media system in which you get to see the guys' status~!
CG GALLERY & SCENE REPLAY SYSTEM Every dating sim will not be complete without these two features. This game will have a CG gallery where you can view CGs that you have obtained and replay the scenes!
Last but not least, the game will also be partially voiced by our talented cast! (Check out their sample voices over our Youtube Channel: youtube.com/meyaoigames)
Demo download is below! Go ahead and play it ^^
Think the demo is too short? We'll DOUBLE the gameplay time if we reach our social media goals, so please help us share about this and reach the goal! ^^
Here comes the September Update! Also, it's half a year already since we started doing updates! Time passes by very fast! (∩╹□╹∩)
Anyway, here is what we've been doing for this past month! =)
- WRITING -
This month, we've had a good progress done on the writing part. If you take a look at previous month's wordcount, it was only clocking at around 30K words.
Currently, the wordcount is at 56K words! (Yeah, which means I've written 26.000 words in just this month! Wow! :O)
My goal is to be able to finish Toshiyuki's route as fast as I could, and use his route as the base and example for other routes (in how many events need to be made for particular area).
Writing parts that have been completed include:
Special day events (ONLY Toshiyuki's part) which includes his birthday event, training camp, beach date, hot spring, planetarium, amusement park, ski trip, etc). (Btw, forgot to make MC's birthday event... :<) => NOTES: Planetarium date ended up being shorter than I'd thought, so I've added an aquarium date as well to make up for it.
Toshiyuki's before-lovers & after lovers (minus 2 scene which hasn't been written yet) spending time events
Toshiyuki's after-lover "main conflict" scenes
Toshiyuki's phone events & text messages
Several dating events (18 out of 30)
What has NOT been completed: Toshiyuki's best friend events (only few scenes), 2 spending time events, ending scenes
- ROUTINE MESSAGES -
Done with Toshiyuki's text messages, so I would like to tell you guys more about it! Once you're lovers with someone, he will begin sending you texts every night. I call them the "routine texts". The contents are mostly the usual "have you eaten yet?", "have a good sleep", etc, etc.
You MUST reply to the messages sent by your friend right after you've received them. If you reply to the message on the next day (or the next, next day), your lover will sulk and your Love Point will be reduced a little bit, so remember to ALWAYS reply to your boyfie's messages inside the game! (actually, you are free to apply that advice to your life lol)
- DRESS UP COMPONENTS ADDITION -
Added some more clothing pieces to the dress up system, which includes the clothes that the guys (Shiba, Tocchan, Hikaru, Toru, Shuu) have! This allows the player to purposely dress up the same as the obtainable guys in order to get more event! I also didn't forget to make the Backers exclusive clothing set! :D :D (No design yet for now!)
- NEW LOGO & WEBSITE IN DEVELOPMENT -
Check out our new logo! What do you guys think of it? ^_^
Also, we've started development of Seiyuu Danshi's website (which will be put in a subdomain of main meyaoi website). However, they are not yet exported to HTML format and is still inaccessible. We'll announce once they're available to be accessed!
- CG ART! -
We have also made a good progress regarding CG art, thanks to the TWO talented artists we have found! <3 (The art progress is a collaboration between me and the artists. I edit the faces so art consistency can be maintained even with two artists! ^_^)
Some sneakpeeks of the CGs! (this is not all! (✪‿✪))
- VA VOTING'S DATE ANNOUNCEMENT -

We are very happy to say that our Voice Acting public audition has started!
What is Seiyuu Danshi?
Seiyuu Danshi is an 18+ BL / Yaoi Visual Novel / Dating sim, with voice acting as its main theme. In this game, you'll play as a newbie voice actor who strives for the Seiyuu Award. On his way to reach his goal, though, he will still live his daily life and YOU get to make the choices on how he should spend the days.
The game was recently funded on Kickstarter. If you need more information regarding the game, feel free to check the Our Kickstarter Page & watch the trailer video below
Here’s a brief description on features you can find in Seiyuu Danshi!
Are you guys interested in auditioning for one of the main casts of Seiyuu Danshi? Read below!
Please remember to follow the guidelines!
Title your e-mail "[Your name] - Seiyuu Danshi Auditions"
Send the e-mail to both: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Check the recording requirements & file naming guide above.
Submissions that don't follow the guidelines won't be considered for the role, so please remember to follow the guidelines!
In this casting call, we are looking for voice actors for 5 of the main cast of Seiyuu Danshi. Below is their character profile AND audition lines.
1. Shibusawa Toshiyuki: we are looking for a medium-low voice range, with an authoritative-but-not-harsh intonation. He can become strict like a father and affectionate like a mother, and we're looking for a voice actor who can portray all of that.
2. Kamiya Hikaru: he has a medium range of voice, not too high nor too low, but he tends to use a cuter / higher version of his voice when he's in his "idol-mode". For him, we want a voice actor that can portray both his "idol self" and his "real self". Singing ability is a plus.
3. Shiba Ryotaro: he has a deep and masculine voice and he is often cast for cool roles like villains or handsome love rivals. However, his real is far from "cool". We want voice actors who can portray his cheerful, easygoing, and clumsy self while still having his deep and cool voice.
4. Nakane Shuu: He has a medium low voice range as well, although not as low as Shiba. His voice is mostly expressionless and rather robotic, however there are times when he's showing a slight change in emotion, and we're looking for voice actors who can portray that slight change.
5. Kazunori Toru: he has a soft and angelic medium high voice. He often gets cast as pre-pubescent boys for his voice acting jobs. He's shy, easily misunderstood, and really kind inside. We want voice actors that can portray the cuteness of his voice and his innocent self.
HOW IS THE VOICE ACTOR CHOSEN?
We will begin by screening out the submissions (audition lines) by 2 main criterias:
Technical side: whether the voice files meet the recording requirements or not
Character side: whether the voice suits the character or not.
Once we go through the first round of auditions, we will review what we have and pick a final set of people for callbacks. During this callback period, you might be asked to do more in-depth lines for these characters so we get to know more about your voice and other stuff.
Final cast will be determined by PUBLIC and BACKERS voting. More details about this will be disclosed after the screening phase has ended.
Payment for the role is $200 per role.
Below is the job description:
Don't forget to spread word about this audition to your friends, especially those who are voice actors, because the more people who knows about this, the better chance we will find the right one for each character! :)
