Yay Azuki! Of course she doesn't need a script. She's been studying those lines since the very first issue of Reversi. She's gonna nail it. If people don't acknowledge her efforts and her skills after this, they're just in denial.
Thanks, Knifeshade, for the summary ^^
I liked the back and forth switching between reaction and audition. Kaya got restless and it was only the first person, noting a boring performance wouldn't be good right. Yasuoka notes despite the 27 year old's age, she's good and what you'd expect from a veteran. And we also see the various anonymous comments (which makes me think those guys will vote for who they think looks the best...).
Since there are 20 people and Azuki's only number 7, we'll probably see more auditions next week. Mixed with some aftermath reactions/discussions, and ended with a cliffhanger of who they chose as the best.
Not only will Azuki go textless in an audition, but she'll go textless under live online video stream!!! There is no possible way to deny her talent and skill after that! This is defiantly the chapter I was hoping for, I'm so glad O&O didn't just skip over the auditions and announce Azuki as the winner, but instead gave us clear insight to the Seiyuu world, just as they've always showed us the inside of the manga industry; to see Azuki battle it out just as we've always watch Mashiro and Tagaki battle for the top. Well, I had no idea what they were saying, but I flipped between the summary paragraphs and the manga, and I can't help but feel excited to read it in English! Next week, we'll undoubtedly see some Azuki in action, and then as Knifeshade predicted, online commentary discussing it, and then an ending with a cliff hanger. This has tremendously lived up to my expectations, I can't wait to read next weeks chapter!!

Did anybody saw a glimpse of Ririka in this chapter?
She was on the 170 color page afterall.

and the three other girls present in the color page are the top two in popularity and the older Seiyuu
I hope Azuki impresses the public. After all, and as witnessed and stated by Mashiro, she has been practising the voice of Naho earlier than the others.
She didn't appear in this chapter. BUT. But if she somehow made it into the 20 selection of voice actresses, we might see her next week giving her performance.Quote:
We'll definitely see the others next week though (Natara, and Otsuki). On that coloured page, Otsuki is on the far right, Natara is the one on the far left.
Negative, good sir. Different hairstyle and looks much younger than that veteran. Seems it is Ririka in that coloured page if you go by hairstyle.Quote:
Yeah, I do that too when I'm translating. I pretty much just concentrate on the meat and overall, rather than giving minute detail. Some bits can be told from just looking at the panels so I skip the minor details. I like to credit that to Obata's art, I reckon he's very good at doing expressions (even if they're simplistic sometimes) so you can make everything out clearly (when read together with my summaries).Quote:
I hope we get to see "commentary" panels next chapter. Just curious how many, and what range of, people are viewing the live audition.
I'm hoping everyone, even Ishizawa, will be impressed when they see the off book audition.
I guess I didn't read the early chapters that thoroughly... In which chapter Kaya comes up with "Ashirogi Muto"? All I've found so far was "Episode 13" while I couldn't find something equal in the chapters, and bakuman wikia isn't a help either.
There is a scan up now: http://www.mangareader.net/bakuman/171
