When 16-year-old high school student Kanna Aoyagi's older sister encourages her to become an adult video game voice actress, Kanna is hesitant. After thinking about all the things her sister has done for her, and how much she owes her, Kanna finally agrees. But can a high school student who knows nothing about adult video games really do the job?

Koe de Oshigoto belongs to the crap I only watched because of forum events (in this case, the Daily Anime Marathon). This was an anime where I was really tempted to throw my laptop out of the window so I wouldn't have to watch it anymore. Allow me to explain what I mean: The story revolves around Kanna, a high-school girl who has just become 16. Her older sister asks her to become a voice actor in an eroge (a porn game). Kanna refuses because it's too embarassing and because minors shouldn't do that kind of thing, but she gets guilt tripped into doing it anyway. I already felt like stopping there, because making your little sister doing that kind of job is something for pure trash to do and because Kanna's reaction annoyed me here. "I don't want to do it, but my sister cares about me so I'll do it anyway"? NO, screw that, big sister should just get real voice actors. Anyway, Kanna now has to be a voice actor in an eroge, and she has 1 week to train how to do it. Without any experience as a VA nor when it comes to sexual stuff (she's never even held a boy's hand), so she just has to wing it after playing one eroge herself. This is all completely believable and totally possible of course, as long as she uses "concentration and imagination". Hem... Also very convenient for her career as a VA is the fact that she can have an orgasm just by imagination, which makes her orgasm in front of other people while acting. The first episode ends with her finishing her first eroge. In the second it becomes even clearer how stupid all those people are, because her name is in the credits even though she wants to keep her job a secret. The plot of the first episode is more or less repeated in the second, but now she orgasms in front of a lot more people, one of which is a classmate. And then they call it sexual harassment when one of the guys says her voice acting gave him a hard-on... There are some attempts to make this OVA funny at times, but those failed miserably. Awkwardness does not equate with humour. Instead, it made watching this trainwreck all the more annoying. The characters are all completely uninteresting and stupid. They all lack basic morals (don't let little girls do porn stuff), and don't realize that they shouldn't tell people who know her personally about her job. The fact that you shouldn't let your younger sister have an orgasm in public also isn't something the older sister is interested in. The animation was good, without much else to say about it. The soap-bubble censorship was hilarious (although that was about the only entertaining thing) The sound? Well, it's an anime about voice acting, so having good voice acting should be a given. And yes, in this case it's on point. The music on the other hand... not so much. I liked the OP, but the ED was bad and in the episode there isn't much background music. Overall: you really should look for a different anime, regardless of whether you're looking for a good story or good fapmaterial. This one is a huge waste of time, and often extremely annoying. 1.8/10, it's not even a good titty show.
Ok, before you you wander into this fucked up little creation known as Koe de Oshigoto! The Animation, know that this is essentially and by all means of what I've heard is hentai, actually depicting sexual intercourse and the like. Story: (3/10) This is essentially hentai with story smothered all over it. Not equally smothered either, more smothered like a mother to an unwanted baby or something along those lines. It's about some girl (didn't care to remember her name, seeing as it hardly matters) who, out of some distorted sense of duty, feels it necessary to assist her older sister in the voice acting for an eroge game. I really don't even think this was meant to "turn on" even the creepers who are into this kind of stuff, seeing as roughly 85% of the time it's just plain awkward. Not in the "you're too young to like it" sense of awkward, more the, "why the hell would she do that?! It'd be so much easier for her to just do it this way" sense of awkward. Also, apparently she's underaged, and super sensitive to pornographic images(I mean, who better than the pornophobic amateur to do voice acting for an eroge? :D). All in all, it succeeds in the sense that what it was trying to attain by groping around in the darkness is mediocrity. Animation: (8/10) Like the majority of 2010 anime, this is essentially the only decent thing about the show. I mean, why put vibrant colors and brilliant animation to a decent show, we'll just put it on this hell orgy of a sandwich known as Koe de Oshigoto! The Animation :D Sound: (6/10) I will admit, they did a damn good job voice acting the unnecessary and admittedly akward slurping and "pleasure" moans, although good singing in a shitty opera doesn't really matter in the end, eh? As for the OP and ED tracks, to be frank, I don't even remember whether or not this show had 'em. I hope that explains enough. Characters: (3/10) These characters both completely lack morals and basic logic. The lack of morals stems from her older sister, who has no qualms about using her underaged little sister to voice act in an eroge, and the lack of logic comes from the little sister, who still thinks she owes something to the hollow shell of a person that is (apparently) her sister. The support characters essentially stand back and critique the complete awkwardness that is this underaged girl's voice acting, which makes it (guess what? :D) even more awkward. The only thing that keeps me from giving this section a 0/10 is that the younger sister is reluctant and maintains some sense of logic(which ironically conflicts with my original statement), but nontheless, they still all piss me off. Overall: (3/10) Overall? This show shouldn't be watched by anyone unless you're the kind of sick bastard who enjoys watching a 16 year old girl awkwardly stumble through a forced eroge voice acting career. Hell, even to those guys, it's still a hesitant recommendation.
It's not very often that we get an anime about the behind the scenes of anime, and I'm pretty sure it's a rarity that we get an anime about the behind the scenes of eroge games or anime. And I'm not sure how much of a demand that this niche needed to be filled either, but here we are today with "Working with Voice!" (Original Title: Koe de Osigoto! The Animation), which is probably the least interesting name for anything outside of a title for an instructional video. The story follows Kanna Aoyagi, a girl who is asked to become a voice actress for eroge by her older sister on her sixteenth birthday. Kanna doesn't want to become a voice actress at first, but after she thinks about all of the things that her sister did for her when she was growing up, she finally agrees, figuring that she owes her older sister. While she is still very nervous about doing it, as the story progresses, she becomes more and more comfortable with going through with it. She is helped out by her coworkers and a classmate who also happens to do work on eroge in his spare time. There isn't any explicit sex scenes or even softcore sex scenes, but the main focus of this series still involves sexual content, so you're still probably going to avoid watching this just in case your mother or roommate walks into the room. Surprisingly, Koe de Oshigoto! is a pretty decent series for what it is. While the story is simple, it's enjoyable, and is weirdly endearing to some extent. It progresses at a decent pace, having little extraneous content, and the humor is actually not awful. All of the characters are actually likable to a degree. It's not amazing by any stretch, but it's worth the ~30-45 minutes it would take to watch this. Even the production value is pretty good, with the animation and art style being nice to look at. I was surprised at how much I liked this, because I had low expectations going in. I just wish it had a little more going on in terms of either comedy or story. It felt a little underwhelming in that regard. I'd say that "Koe de Osigoto!" is worth checking out if the subject matter interests you and you have some free time with nothing else going on It's not going to blow your socks off, but is still an enjoyable watch.
