Riho Iida, worldwide known voice actress, recognized for her role as Rin Hoshizora of “Love Live!”, has officially published her photo book titled,” Riho Iida 20th Anniversary PHOTOBOOK" Eien to Issyun＜Eternity and Moment＞"”.
Before pursuing her career as a voice actress, she appeared as a child actor in “Tensai TV Kun”, a famous program for children. This photo book contains many dialogues with Noshino Nanjo (as Eli Ayase) who co-starred in "Love Live!". "I became a voice actress so quickly. When I was in a difficult position, Noshino gave me advice as a voice actor, and soon after the life of a voice actress became fun. After the final live of “Live Live!” at Tokyo Dome in 2016, we have rarely had the chance to work as μ’s. We included stories from those days. It's a very warm conversation. ", she said.
The shoot took place in September in Da Nang and Hoi An, Vietnam's resorts. The moment she arrived in Vietnam, she was measured in order to make her own Ao Dai.
Around the day of the release, she held handshake meetings with her fans who had applied in advance.
In Japan, meetings where voice actors shake hands with fans or hand over purchased goods in person are thus widespread.
In Japan, it’s quite common that voice actors/actresses promote themselves in other avenues such as with photobooks.
This photo contains wonderful images which include sexy swimwear, which pays homage to Riho’s previous photobook. All of this commemorates the 20th anniversary of the first photobook release.
