Goodreads Synopsis:

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 been working as hard as she can in order to put in a good performance for her first voice-acting gig, Beast Renjai . But while she’s striving to earn the respect of her fellow cast members and the director, she’s falling dangerously behind in school! What will happen to her chances if she flunks her upcoming finals?!


I love this series. It’s crazy hilarious, and I’m excited every time a new volume comes out. It’s hilariously crazy, and I love every minute of it.
The first half of this volume focuses on exams, which Hime is struggling through. Including for dance, where she has to partner up with Kudo, who is not a fan of her. It’s a struggle for both of them, and it’s hilarious. I can’t wait for them to really get close to each other, and for Kudo to find out she’s Shiro. Until then, I’ll just enjoy the moments they get together.
In the second half, Hime gets another voice acting job, only it has a love scene. With Kudo. This is hilariously adorable, because she’s never done something like this before, and now she’s forced to think of Kudo like that, and he has no idea. She’s also struggling with the way her acting is going, and I like, and respect, how maturely she’s handling it, and working at it.
I don’t know if any of this is going to continue into the next volume, but I really hope it does. Either way, I’m super excited for the next volume. I can’t wait to read more of this.
