I can’t help but go all Weeaboo on you guys sometimes.

I follow few Japanese seiyu (voice actors) and one of which is Megumi Hayashibara because I think she’s the complete package as far as Japanese Idols are concerned. She’s starred in every Slayers anime, movie, and has been the voice of a few other characters you might remember. Just imagine Rei Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangelion or Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop and you’ll have a better clue as to who she normally portrays.

Aside from her voice work, she’s a very accomplished singer with scores of singles and albums under her belt which is where today’s track comes in. The song “Give a Reason” is was the opening track from the classic Slayers Next soundtrack. I love this damn show because of it’s irreverent sense of humor…but I love the song because Megumi has a great voice.
