It’s been a tough few years for Sad anime girl Sadako Oshima.
A decade after becoming the first girl to win the coveted prize for best character in a series of anime, Oshima has now become an internet sensation.
A few weeks ago, she was invited to participate in a live chat to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Anime Expo, a convention held in Los Angeles.
She made a few comments about the convention, and in particular the convention’s theme: Sad anime.
“I think it’s because Sadako was so young when I started the anime industry,” says Otakon producer Hideaki Anno, “when I was young I didn’t have the chance to look back and say, ‘Why is this girl so popular?’
Now, I feel a lot of people have a lot to say about her.”
It’s not that Oshima’s opinions are out of line, or that she’s a big fan of anime.
In fact, the series she works on is one of the most popular in her native Japan.
And her popularity is a big reason why the anime community has come to love her.
Oshima was born in 1993 and grew up in an environment where anime was not uncommon, so her life has been filled with lots of anime and her favorite characters.
Her parents had a lot more anime in the house, but she wasn’t allowed to watch it, she says.
“My parents were the only anime fans in my house,” Oshima says.
When her parents got divorced, her father moved to Japan and she moved with him.
She spent a lot time with him, and when he died, she stayed with him to help him with his grief.
“When I first moved to Tokyo, I felt really lonely.
I was really alone.
I went to the anime room every night, and I felt lonely.
But that was my father’s last wish.”
She went on to pursue a career as a voice actress and a series director.
“It was really fun to be around people who enjoyed anime and felt the same way,” she says, “so I wanted to be part of that community.”
She started working as a series supervisor on a variety of anime projects, and started becoming a fan.
She started getting her anime credits in 2008.
She’s been working as the voice of the titular character in an anime, a popular anime-inspired character, and even as a character on a live-action series.
She says the anime she plays on her own, as well as in her work as Sadako, is a combination of all her interests.
“The most popular anime in Japan, I think, is the Sadako character,” she explains.
“Sadako is such a beloved character.
So, of course, it was a good idea for me to be able to voice Sadako in the series.”
“The sad anime genre is really the most common anime genre,” she continues.
“Because Sadako is so popular, I decided to take part in that genre as well.”
Anime is a very popular form of media, and Sadako’s fame has brought her into contact with a lot people who are fans of anime as well.
“In general, Sadako has been very good at reaching out to people who like anime,” says Anno.
“She’s made a lot friends.”
When Anno first started working on the anime, the staff was mostly made up of women.
Today, that number is much larger.
“One of the things Sadako likes to do is talk to people in the anime world,” says director and animation director Takashi Imamura, “and she’ll ask them to talk about how they like anime, or talk about Sadako.
Anime fans have also gotten to know Sadako personally. “
People who are Sadako fans really do like her,” he continues.
Anime fans have also gotten to know Sadako personally.
“Even though she’s in the Sadaoi business, she doesn’t have any children,” says producer Hideki Kamiya.
“We had a very special situation where she had to go to Japan to work as a producer.
I got to spend time with her in the studio.
And that was a real privilege.”
Anno is not alone in having a personal connection to Sadako because she was a childhood friend of one of her children, and they’ve been in contact for a long time.
“As a result, I have a good relationship with her,” says Imamura.
“They get along very well, and that’s why we work together.”
Sadako says she’s glad she’s been able to meet some people in her field.
“Animators who are passionate about animation get a lot from animators who love Sadako,” she adds.
“For example, I like how they get to see her work in a new light, and feel a connection
