Even though the public recording for Kiiyan’s radio show has been cancelled, recording with Kiiyan, Shimono Hiro and Kaji Yuki will happen, and the show will air at 18:00 on FM91.6/AM1134/radiko.
For the Riken Vitamin corner of the radio show, listeners can send in a short (20 second) script for Riken’s wakame soup that Kiiyan can read on the air (be sure to feature the soup!). Or, you can send your special recipe for wakame soup called “I really don’t want to tell anyone … but Taniyama-san!” and Kiiyan will try your recipe live in the studio.
For more details and the submission link, check the site.

Earlier this month we posted about the Riken wakame soup CMs done by Kaji Yuki, Shimono Hiro and Kiiyan — and now Animate Times has interviewed the three about the commercials and soup.
Kiiyan mentions that he was a bit nervous about doing a CM because it had been so long (apparently he forgot about the shiso sake one from last year), but that he listened to Shimono’s take and felt prepared.
He felt he couldn’t nail the father’s voice, as he’s never been a dad, but that the kid’s voice was at least easy to record because the director told him to make the voice kind of like Panda-kun’s from Bokura Bare Bears.
He recommends the soup because it’s great for eating after drinking (or the risotto made with it, depending on your belly size) and with only 17 calories, it’s great for diets. He said it’s good with garlic or sesame oil. He tried curry powder, because Shimono did, but ended up putting too much on!
Animate Times is currently running a Twitter campaign where users who follow the account and retweet the target tweet have a chance at winning an autograph from each of the seiyuu, 5 winners for each (a total of 15 winners in all). The time frame for Kiiyan’s autograph is June 10-July 10, 2019.
The full interview and pictures can be found here.
Kiiyan, Kaji Yuki and Shimono Hiro have done a series of commercials for Riken Vitamin’s wakame (seaweed) soup mix based on the idea of promoting the soup to parents and children together.
Each seiyuu has voiced three ads: mom, dad and child. The videos, plus comments from each of the seiyuu and recipes for the dishes in their commercials can be found on the Riken site here.
And here are Kiiyan’s CMs:
