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!

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.

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.

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?


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?

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?


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"


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? 


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! 


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


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).


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!


just wondering if there is an approx release date?

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


Whens it going to come out already??? :D


(Edited 1 time)

The release date has been moved to June 2018. It'll definitely be worth the wait though!

6 month delay rly :/

The information is here:


I am really eager to play this game as it is super innovative and unlike any other BL game I played before!

However I lack the money needed to preorder the game at the moment so I am wondering if I can preorder via installment ><

Unless it's going to take you over three months to get the money you'd probably be better off just saving till you can afford it. The price was just raised recently and I really can't see it going $30+ anytime soon. 



I've pre-ordered it with the Artbook, can't wait to see what  supercalifragilisticexpialidocious goodies are there in the Artbook (ര̀ᴗര́)و ̑̑ (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

I want to buy the game desperately however,  i'm changing my address next April! If it's not out by March, I can't possibly buy :(((

Address? Sorry, but I don't understand why it would affect you buying the game as this is a digital-only purchase :o

i cant find anywhere when the game will be avail, just a pre order for it with no date


It was originally delayed to this December, though it sounds like it may be delayed again based on the below comment.

So lets say Q3/Q4 2019 <3

dear and for those who paid already can we get the money back and buy it when the game is out or wait for a year or 2

Just so we're clear, I was joking about the 2019 thing. It hasn't even been confirmed that there will be a delay.

Besides, my understanding was that the price is going to go up at release, so you'd just end up paying more regardless.

thanks god for that and thank you for your kind reply

the game is going to be worth the wait! Theres no other intricate interactive romance game like this. IMO, better to have the best game we can get even if it takes more time. rushing it might make the quality be not as good as it can be :) 


I will post another update with new release date announcement + ways to get your refund.

Yeah, there is still time as the game has a high chance of getting delayed :{

This is by far one of the most fun and original games I have ever played in this genre. I really love that it breaks away from the classic "dialogue only" system you normally see in otome/bl games and it does so in the best way possible. All of the characters are lovable, the MC is very relateable, and even just in demo form the game has a pretty wide variety of content that kept it interesting all the way through.

Keep up the great work! I can't wait for this game to release and I hope it sets a new standard for how these sorts of games could (and should) be.

Can't wait for this to come out!!!!!!!!! <3

The demo was super fun, and I'm definitely looking forward to the release. By far, it's the most interactive and creative BL game I've played to date. Thank you for all your hard work, and looking forward to the December release!

I hit this glitch where it's 1/26 on the demo and I'm going to ask Tocchan for a second date and after I pic the place, try to select the clothing (I bought some new funky style stuff), the game crashes each time.

Dress up code is super messy and is prone to error (coded it when I was a noob with a trial and error method :p), will recode it later on. Thanks for bug reports!  

You're welcome.
