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!

What are the chances of the official release date being postponed again?

(+1)

Oh, this has such great potential! I haven't seen a BL or even a hetero VN game as complex as this. The art is fantastic  and the 'mini-games' and events are so creative.

I'm definitely going to buy it as soon the full game is released! I hope that the game is released by June 2018 but don't neglect your health, developer-san!

Thank you so much for starting this wonderful project and on working really hard on it!

Hello, what's exactly tour beta ??(Sorry, I'm not a native english sepaker)

If game will be offically relased, tour beta edition will still be worthful??

Beta means you get to play first before the game officially releases. Right now, only Toru (the red-haired guy) route is playable. When the other guys' routes are finished, the beta will be updated (so you will be able to play the other guys' routes as well).

When game official releases, you also get to download the "full version" as well.

It's better to ask itch.io directly. E-mail support@itch.io to contact itch.io directly.

 So, I got the newest version of the beta, and I wanted to ask if it is possible to give Valentine chocolate to Shuu. On  Twitter, you said that in the 1.05 version it possible  to have a confession scene with Shuu, but I cant give  Valentine chocolate to him or meet him anywhere else except his apartment on Monday and Wednesday.  Is it supposed to be like this and will be able to spend time with him more often after Valentine's day? (Sorry I'm not sure if it's a bug or no, and if I should write an email about this or no).

Confession scene is not Valentine's day. All his special scenes (valentine, white day, etc) are not finished yet. . 

ok. Thank you

I managed to give Chocolate to Shuu on Valentines. He's just not in his mansion, he's outside ^_^

I see others have asked about paying the remainder for beta since they preordered and I was wondering if you could let me know about this as well when itchio gets back to you? I am also interested in this. Thank you!

Itch.io has responded, and "topping up" previous purchase isn't something that is currently supported. Currently, the only way to do it would be to ask for a refund, and then re-purchase with a higher value. If you want to do this, send me an e-mail to meyaoigames@gmail.com with your itch.io account e-mail address (I'll relay to itch.io regarding the refund).

is it possible to do this after the official Release? Because I do not want to take Money from you, when you are still at work (it is not much I know, but every little bit helps)

please make an android version of this game😭 make an android version even if its a demo only😭

I have a similar question to the other two asked. A year ago I purchased the preorder for $30. Is there any way I can pay $19.99 to have access to the Toru beta without paying all over again ($49.99)? When I clicked buy and input $19.99 it wouldn't let me and said I had to make a minimum purchase of $28.99 to buy the full game (that file is already unlocked for me) and $49.99 to have access to the Toru beta (that file was grayed out unless I entered $49.99).

Have asked itch.io about the ways to do it. Will let you know again once I've received an answer. 

Okay, thank you!

Thanks so much for all your help! Just re-purchased at the Toru demo tier ($48.99) and I'm loving it. This will definitely tide me over until the full game is out

Hello! I pre-ordered the game a month ago and I am interested in getting the beta. If I will buy the game again, can I hope for getting the beta?

Have asked itch.io about the ways to do it. Will let you know again once I've received an answer. 

i pre-ordered awhile ago but i'm interested in getting the beta. is there any way to just pay an additional $25?

Have asked itch.io about the ways to do it. Will let you know again once I've received an answer. 

i absolutely love the demo when is the full game being released (=^x^=)

I played the demo halfway it crashed but it was a really good game! That being said i thought it was already out (Buy Now) and bought it, only to find out it's not out yet T_T . How do i get a refund (and buy it later on when it's out) ? 

Refund is handled by itch.io. Please contact support@itch.io for that.

I've actually decided to wait ^_^ but is there a way to top up to get toru beta? 

Sorry to ask a little confused can we buy it now? the button which said pre order is now buy? i just want to make sure before i make space on my laptop xD

No, it is still pre-order. Not sure why the button changes words.

okay thanks ^^

Looking forward to this game! Played the demo way back and was hooked! Glad to see progress is still being made, and look forward to seeing it completed!

I don't mind if the game needs to be pushed back more if need be, so much hard work and creativity has gone into this game and I look forward to it everyday. Thank you to everyone who has backed this masterpiece!

Thanks, it's really kind of you <3

I bought the game! I wish it comes out by June, on that month is my birthday~

when the game will be released?

June 2018 (estimated date).

hello, I was hoping I could find a way for me to get a refund on my pre-order! I'm so sorry! Do I need to find an email to ask for it back?.

Hello, if your purchase isn't too far back, I think itch.io support can help you. Just contact support@itch.io and ask for a refund. They might ask me for a confirmation later on, and I'll approve of it when they do.

okay thank you very much!

Could i get a refund also i bought it yesterday but Support isnt getting back to me and i kinda want my money back

Please wait until support gets back to you. It shouldn`t take that long. 

its been 3 days and i want a refund please.

Refund is handled by itch.io support. Please send another e-mail to the support mail. I can't do anything here.

I'm so excited for this game! I loved the demo and just preordered the game!! YAY! Can't wait till June (That is the release date right? I can't remember)

Sorry, If I buy on another PC, can I change PC games? Can I play it on another PC?

Yes, you can download the game multiple times (no download limit).

I am so excited to play the full game, but it will only release in June, I need to raise money, 30 dollars is equivalent to 3 times my currency, more or less. T.T

Hello Meyaoi ~ I just saw the update in Kickstarter about Toru route beta to be sent soon but for backers only. Can I get the beta copy as well since I bought the game thru itch.io? :(

If you buy the digital copy + artbook pack, you can get the beta copy.

thanks for your reply! I'll just wait for the digital copy through my itch.io account once it gets released in the next few months. :)

I'm not sure where the questionnaire is, exactly, but i love the game so far!! I'm really happy you used the renpy engine, too since it's easier to understand + all those lovely save slots~!!^^ 

As for suggested improvements.. It took me a while to realize the FAME stats and FB number of "fans/following" were basically the same thing, so i hope you could tell us about that at some point - like when we first get to open the computer.

There was a scene with Hikaru where our character walks in on him accidentally, and it's just a personal preference, but i really just wanted to leave because of how persistent my character was about the autograph. It just made me not want my own character to do well in the game. I understand it's part of his personality, though, so that's alright~!

I really loved the customization choices at the mall, and i'm very excited to see the rest of the stores! The love interests are actually very charming. You've done great on them! I hope there will be more dialog for the side characters just so it's more fun to look around and talk to others. 

Lastly.. I'm still surprised that this is done in Indonesia?? If only i was in Jakarta, i would've loved to help out somehow! I hope the project goes really well for you all. Good luck~!!^^

Just wanted to say that i LOVED the demo! Can't wait for this!

I just wanted to ask why don't the dates work for me? After my first date with Toshiyuki I couldn't date him because of some error occurrances when I tried to pick clothes, I restarted the game multiple times and it didn't help. (Btw I love this game very much!)

It happened the same to me. In my second date with Toru when I picked the regular t-shirt, the game stopped because of an error. I closed it, reload my last save and chose the trousers first and the game didn't crash anymore. 

I chose the trousers (as you did) and it worked, so thank you very much! :D

I'm Brazilian and I loved the game.

But will you have Portuguese?

(+2)(-1)

Just wondering when the full release will be...>w< 

Just a small teensy little question, Will the game be fully voiced or partially voiced? Like small groans here and there, moaning here and there and some dialogue spoken?

(-1)

Partially voiced. The game text is huge (300.000 words++) and it will be very costly and time consuming to fully voice it.

Hi hi, I've been following the development of this game since 2016 and I've been so exited about it, I've played all the demo's and i just keep wanting to play this game more and more. I absolutely LOVE it when there's a progress report I get so happy seeing the progress and the screen shots.

This is like my dream dating sim, and all of the features that you guys are adding look like so much fun to play, I am a liiiiiittle disappointed that the game was delayed, but that was only because I want to play it so badly lol, to be honest I'm not surprised tho and of course its better that it was delayed so that you guys could finish it properly and really refine it plus more game at the end!

I am a little sad that I can't play the beta lol but sadly i couldn't back the kickstarter and i didnt buy the artbook.....I wonder if I can buy it now and get to play the beta....? (I'm probably just being hopeful here). 

Either way I'm looking very forward to playing in June.........(maybe earlier if we're lucky xDD).

Thank you guys so very much for developing this game and working so hard at making this amazing looking game, good luck, I really can't wait to play Seiyuu Danshi, and you're possible future projects.

Comments like this might be a bit of a hassle, but I just want to say thanks so much for the experience (of the demo)! That was one lengthy ass demo, and definately look forward to the full game! You did a great job with it all! <3 i will save up and buy this without anyone knowing at all it is my mission

((trying to find best boi tho is hard like jfc my heART WHY NOT POLYAMORY))

does this work for windows 10?


(+1)(-1)

Yes, it works. Download the Win&Linux version one =)

I did but I cant find the right file to start the game

just extract it and double click on the "Seiyuu Danshi Extended Demo 1.00.exe"

(+2)

I don't want a refund for now, I am happy to wait. There's only one concern I must address: if you guys don't manage to finish the game, can we expect refunds in that case? 

(+1)(-1)

Yeah, definitely. I mean, we are already offering refunds right now for late release date. If we are not planning to finish the game, then we will definitely open another refunds opportunity (not that I'm planning to not finish the game tho, lol)

No way am I requesting a refund! Sure, I'm sad it won't be out sooner but it's coming along beautifully and everything you are implementing is sure to make it a super fun game! I can't wait to see it in it's entirety, and good luck! 

(+1)

hey so one pervy question, are we able to progress to the H scenes in the newer demo?? i never seem to get there before the last day on the demo

(+1)(-1)

Nah. You will not get H scenes in the early months, only after becoming lovers (which is at least May-ish? Haven't properly tested it yet so might change).

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWW D:

I can’t wait until it’s out! 😭❤️

(Edited 1 time)

For some weird reason I cant find the download and now i'm having a very hard time trying to download the demo, Does anyone have any ideas on what I may be doing wrong? I have the windows 10 update has anyone been able to successfully download this game without any interruptions during the downloading process?

The release date has been moved to June 2018. More details: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/11313010/seiyuu-danshi-english-bl-yaoi-dati...

it won't be delayed another time after will it? cos it would suck waiting till june then it's delayed again lol

Well, I certainly don't want it to be delayed again lol, (I mean, who wants that?) but I can't promise either.  Game development is rough and there might unpredicted trouble during development. 

If you don't want to wait, you can ask for refund and just purchase when game is released. 

YAAAY! i pre-ordered it! i can't wait till the full game is out!

(+1)(-1)

just wondering if there is an approx release date?
