Kotori Koiwai has gained a reputation for voicing loli characters, such as Non Non Biyori’s Renge Miyauchi and Seven Deadly Sins’ Elaine. But did you know that she’s also really smart? In fact, she’s so smart that she got accepted into MENSA. She even posted about getting into the group in her personal blog. She was even showing off her membership card.
Now, MENSA is quite tough to get into, as they only accept those who score 98% or above in standardised tests, supervised IQ tests, or other approved intelligence tests. In other words, you have to be really smart to get in.
In her blog, the seiyuu said that she usually gets high scores in online IQ tests. She finally tried taking an officially supervised one to find out if her high scores were accurate, and as it turns out, she is genuinely smart.
MENSA has members all over the world, and this includes Japan where they have 1,500 members. It’s a non-profit organisation.
Congratulations Kotori Koiwai! Nyan Pasu!
