I’ve always wondered…

Since j1m0ne conveniently posted an entry today about Kogao and Dekagao face sizes, I thought it was about time I put this question up for answer. So, can anyone tell me what Minorin’s secret weight loss regime is, kudasai? (*´Д`*)

The other day I was looking through some old seiyuu magazines, dating 2002-2006, and I realized that Minorin first appeared chubby, and not so bijin. So I plotted dots: 1) Haruhi came out in ’06, and she was still chubby then. 2) N/A. 3) I got seiyuu fever around the time, and Minorin was one of the first seiyuu I took notice of. Picture? The dots don’t connect, unfortunately.

Minorin’s debut went from this:

To this, in a year’s time:

I’m pretty sure I got the pictures right, in terms of chronologically, but correct me if I’m wrong. Surely something happened between 2006 and 2007, as the difference can be seen in the Animelo DVDs. Then again, she only appeared on stage during the singing of OUTRIDE for a few seconds as the camera panned over the Haruhi trio in the DVD, so I can’t be too sure.

Boy, if only I can lose weight like that and maintain such a great look!



  1. Face cream, baby. is probably the sort of stuff Avex/Lantis poured over Minorin’s face once they started sniffing the possibility that she could be very popular if she was a little thinner.

    And yeah, she was chubbier around the 2004 period (Tenjou Tenge time) when I was still in my HATE CHIHARA MINORI mode, lol.

  2. Oh wow, seriously?
    Thanks for letting me know!
    I guess that’s one product that definitely works unlike most others, lol.
