Hime Kino’s dream is to one day do voice acting like her hero Sakura Aoyama from the Lovely ♥ Blazers anime, and getting accepted to the prestigious Holly Academy’s voice actor department is the first step in the right direction! But Hime’s gruff voice has earned her the scorn of teachers and students alike. Hime will not let that stand unchallenged. She’ll show everyone that she is too a voice acting princess, whether they like it or not!!
Hime has the chance of a lifetime—to live and work with her heroine Sakura Aoyama. Sure, she’ll still be in the role of Shiro, but she’ll be breathing the same air as her idol every day! But Senri knows what his mom is really like, and he’s worried that his new friend will fall under her spell. Can Senri save Shiro from the same heartbreak he suffered as a kid without destroying Hime’s dream?
