I was awarded with Best Male Newcomer at the 9th Seiyu Awards.
Pulling myself together from my astonishment, I accepted it with the awareness that I must work harder.It feels like just yesterday that I was in high school, feeling as though animation and movies were there for me in times of need and wanting to involve myself (within the industry).
That I was granted a prestigious award is something I owe to all my fans, agency staff, everyone I have met, the projects I worked on, my seniors and the connections that bind us together.
The path I took was not smooth, it was because of the assistance of everyone I have encountered that I am able to move forward and reach where I stand. The countless words of encouragement, letters and advice is what motivates me to be who I currently am.
Now is not the time to remain satisfied, I will take everything I have received and use them to further devote myself (to my work). I will make an effort so that the connections I have formed will further spread to a wider audience.
To finish off, I will spend my days giving my all so that I may deliver my performances in the various projects and opportunities that arise this year whilst enjoying myself at the same time. Thank you very, very much! Please continue supporting me from now and forever onwards!
EDIT: Seems I either skipped an entire paragraph while translating it last night or he added it in afterwards. Probably the former. It’s now been added. orz
