That's awesome! I'm not a fan of the series but it's so cool Mayu was able to get such a job. I love hearing about all the AKB girls getting dubbing jobs. ^^

Kinda scared here. Maybe one of the lesser roles. Like say...Clarisse.

Why are you scared? And no, it says in the article she will dub Annabeth. Nothing to be 'scared' about, Mayu's not a bad voice actress.
