It was announced at Anime Japan 2016 today that Dear Girl ~Stories~ won both the Radio of the Year and Best Male Radio awards at the 2nd AniRadi Awards! Suwa san and UchiP were on hand to accept the awards. Congratulations!
DGS began broadcasting in April of 2007. This past Saturday’s episode marked 9 full years on the air and next week will be the first episode of the 10th year.
It was announced at today’s Danger Heaven? release event that Kamiya will be releasing a new mini album titled “Theater” on August 24. As usual, the CD will come in deluxe and regular editions, with the deluxe edition including a DVD. The deluxe edition will retail for 3000 yen and the regular edition for 2000 yen, excluding tax.
A DVD of Kamiya’s first live will be released June 1st. The DVD will be two discs and retail for 6000 yen (excluding tax). Alas, no BD.
It was announced on February 1, 2016 that OnoD left the agency Mausu Promotion and is now freelance. If counting the time he was in their training school, he was with Mausu Promotion for 17 years.
OnoD has also opened an official website at DaisukeOno.com which includes his profile, voice samples, and filmography. Please be aware that the contact form on the website is for work-related contacts. It is not for sending fan messages and OnoD will not respond to such mails so please do not bother him with unrelated messages.
It was announced on this week’s show that for the show’s 10th anniversary, there will be a DGS EXPO event held at Saitama Super Arena on June 25 and 26.
For the uninitiated, Saitama Super Arena is where large concerts such as AniSama are held. It has a maximum capacity of 37,000. There are not yet any details as to exactly what the event will be or what they will do, but this is quite likely the first time a radio show has held an event at such a large venue. Way to start the new year!
Kamiya made several big announcements at today’s KiraFes! He will be releasing a new mini album in two consecutive months and will also hold his first solo live!
