The presentation for the 10th Seiyuu awards was today and boy was it exciting. With live streaming of the event for the first time, the whole of twitter was buzzing with each announcement.

With the expected, like Kamiya Hiroshi winning his 5th most voted(aka most popular) award and the unexpected, having Kenichi Suzumura winning both the Best Personality and Best Male Supporting or having loveable genius newbie Seiyuu, Inori Minase winning the Best Actress.
