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 can try out the new demo now! Download link is there below on the bottom of this page (so you need to scroll a lot) =D

The new demo contains SIX weeks of in-game time (up to 15th February), and you can see most of the features that you can see in final release, with the only exception being foreplay mode. You can finally experience the interactive maps first-hand, talk to NPCs to take quests, experience new audition mechanism, purchase underwears, decorate your room, see brand new character graphics with changing clothes, and lots of other features that we've now implemented!

For the full game, you can play as the main character for around 1 year game time. There are 5 love interests + 2 secret characters that are woo-able <3


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!

How do you get Shu’s middle ending scene?

I got the best ending, and bad ending, I’m not sure what the middle ending is called.


Thank you!

I mean even to start it to a certain point.

Are you able to start play on the Shiba or shibusawa route at all. Thks

Not yet. There are not done yet. If you want more details with updates just check the twitter 

(-5)

When is the release date?

What day is the aquarium date supposed to take place?


Is it September 21? From the days passing when it goes from September 20th to the 21st. Aquarium date pops up above the day, but when the day happens I have no option to go to the aquarium.


I'm confused, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

It should auto-trigger, but only if you have become lovers with that particular guy.

Okay, thank you :) It’s a great game.

I just thought I should say after playing a lot more, the aquarium date is the only one not listed on the calendar. I hope that’s helpful a little!

This might be a really stupid question, but how do I use the game console I got from Toru? (That is, if it can be used.)😳

Also, thanks for such an amazing game, I just love it! I have already played through Shuu, Toru and Hikaru a couple of times now (just can't get enough of it).😍 As for now, Hikaru is my favorite. (I think I have something for tsunderes).😳

Anyway,  I'm rooting for you guys, keep up the good work😄

Can use it on TV. Planned to make graphics for the console, but maybe later.

I have a TV, and Toru has given me the console, however, I can't figure out how to get it to work. 😵

Anyway, thank you for the answer. 😊

I know you might be sick of people asking but does anyone know the latest update on characters. I don't know where to find it on twitter to keep updated.

(Edited 1 time)

Twitter.com/meyaoigames. If there's no update there, then there's no update. Updating a character isn't as easy as you might think.

I pre-ordered this game over a year ago, for $26.99, not $28.99, does this mean i have to pay extra?

No, you don't have to. 

Hi, i want to know is there any differences in the $48.99 version compared with the demo?

$48.99 is a beta, allowing you to play until the year ends. Demo allows you to play until 15 February only. 

Do I just download it? I'm kinda a noob at this lol

Yeah, just download, extract, and play. 

Just wondering is there  any talking from characters in the game or is it just music.

(+1)

I believe we'll be getting partial voice acting in the end!!! If you wanna hear the guys, you can check Meyaoi's YouTube channel. They have the auditions up there, and the final cast (as of now) also narrates update videos :DDDDD

Does anyone know to get the sex toy from the guy at the shrine that wants a boyfriend?

Also I've been trying to get the guard's quest (the TV station guard) but nothing's happening. When I talk to him he just says something like "I have three kids to feed". I've tried talking to his love interest (the guard at the cinema) but he just says something along the lines of 'he loves his job'. 

(+1)

Shine quest: Complete yellow haired miko quest, keep the prayer for later. Talk to the guy at shrine. Talk to miko again to pray for him.

Guard quest: Talk to the guard at cinema first (gotta change the 3 kids to feed part tho lol, he should be single...)

I have been to the love hotel all i could buy was costumes and condoms.

Maximize your intelligence  and talk to the sex toy seller in the park. "Missing" sex toys can be earned by completing side quests.

Oh yeah I thought you were asking about costumes lol x"D

Thank you and one other thing where do you get toys from for foreplay mode. I think you have done a great job on game.

Does anyone no how or when you get Hikaru phone number so u can go out on dates.

Keep spending time with him during the daytime.

I tried reloading it but it keeps happening at the same spot. What can i do it is on the April fools day.

Just press "ignore" for now. Gonna fix later. Also, if you encounter bugs, please e-mail instead of commenting.

Any projected release date for the game or is it still up in the air?
I get requests to cover the game so I need to prepare for the onslaught of questions.

Also, I love the premise. Will look forward to making a review and let's play for it (the demo, at least haha).

(+1)

Release date is still up in the air. Gonna be released... well, when it's finished (it's a 1 person work, so :|)

How do u get a relationship with Toru as I am with him but my relationship is only up to crush I call him and go dates a lot also visit him and I am on December calandar is the a way to trigger events to get up the events early.

(Edited 1 time)

A few other bugs i have noticed are instead of taking 30,000 yen like it's supposed to for rent it only takes 20,000 yen. And when i go to the VA school for extra lessons the money for each lesson (chara, tech, and sing) aren't being taken out either.  like others instead of 40,000 yen being taken for rent 50,000 yen is being taken. i hope this helps with bugs.

How do I get Haato to wear the kitty costume? Is it specific to someone's route? Are there special conditions? Also since the roles are reversible shouldn't the view points change?  

Buy a kitty costume in Hikaru's size and have him wear it at the love hotel. To trigger the event, your MC might have to be reversible.

Oh! Thanks!

Found another bug on Hikaru's route i think.  On june 5th (thursday) you can do the kindergarten job and the next day (which is actually friday when the job is supposed to be available.) June 6th which is Friday you can do the job as well.

Hmm... I couldn't really see how this is possible (checked the code and it shouldn't happen). Can you tell me if you encounter it again? (with SS if possible)

How will I know when the new characters routes are ready to play. Like to toshiyuki or Shiba routes please.

Check the twitter / FB

what's the difference between a regular pc set and a 1 in all pc set? Also does the TV do anything? because i haven't seen it do anything.

No difference, just aesthetic change.

TV currently only has a use in Toru route.

Just wanted to tell you girls what a brilliant game this is -- you've literally redefined the entire BL genre in my opinion. You've SO MANY PEOPLE out there cheering and rooting for you, and we all have your back!! Don't get discouraged and as impatient as some people are, work at your own pace!! 

There's so much to do and so much content in the beta, and those who don't want to wait can shell out an extra 15$ if they really want to!! We all know how hard you're working, and we know that all the time, effort, decisions and stress you've put into Seiyuu Danshi is to give us the best game possible!!

Keep your heads up and remember that everyone loves what you guys do!!

Cheers~♪

Thanks, really appreciate that.

This demo is so terrific! I enjoyed that so much and I'm surely gonna buy. But what if I'm not a patron? I'm a newbie here. Will I get less when it's officially released? I mean I saw that people who are patrons will get some additional things and I feel a bit irritated because it seems unfair for me.. a bit. I worry about it. 

(+1)

the only things we actually get from pat are updates on the game, beta access if you're at that pledge, the game if you've been at that pledge, you also get to see cgs and wips of cgs, and if you're at the highest pledge you get the free artbook/guide book as well as the game but you have to be pledged for at least 2 months, you also get to see what cgs could have been included in the game, as well as first access to buy the left over merch products but that's all.  i don't see how that's unfair. if you're at the highest pledge that still means you have to pay for the other merchandise you don't get it for free.

I see. Thank you for the explanation!

The calendar for September and October's rent days says I'm supposed to pay 40,000 yen but I was charged 50,000 yen.

(+1)(-1)

I want to ask. Can I in Demo version game go out on bed (xxx) endings with anyone?

No.

Do you i need to speak to someone to get it. Because I have brought and read all books in bookstore no new ones have appeared I am up to 16 May

No. You get traits from: eating at the restaurant, buying and reading the books (make sure to read the books at night)

could someone please let me know what u have to do to get energetic up for auditions.

Check bookstore / restaurant.

I do not know if this is a known bug or not but id thought id point it out just in case...

I went to th temple and Did the donate and pray (10,000), i reseved the big boost to affection however it did not take the money away. So at this time that is free affection gain only costing time at this moment. I hope this helps.

Oh, that's not a known bug. Thanks for reporting.

This same bug is happening to me as well. i just donated and it didn't withdraw the 10,000 like it should have.
