Interview with the Akihabara Queen
It seems my cries about horrendous weight loss were a wasted effort. Momoi looks as healthy as ever in her brand new interview feature on Excite's Anime Seiyuu Jouhou Portal.
The "Akihabara Queen" discusses her fears after the UNDER17 breakup, her struggle with confidence while she grew as a solo artist, her opinion on "moe", her current direction (We can all rest easy. Momoi will never stray from the denpa song), and her latest achievement, WONDERMOMOI. There are several hilariously cute and sappy moments where she has such passionate and idealistic answers you can just imagine her delivering her lines as some noble monologue with a raging ocean/rock backdrop.
Here she is, cute as ever (I'll write off the cover pic as a case of makeup/lighting/airbrushing) in her signature CD holding pose. Seriously, she should just copyright this pose.
