Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Animation and game are very popular in Japan. Many works in animation and game have been released, and many characters have been produced. It is an important factor to select appropriate voice actors so that we can appropriately impress the characters. Based on this idea, we are developing a prototype of voice actor recommendation tool. We recorded voice performance and calculated vocal acoustic features. Then we had a questionnaire of impressions of the recorded voice performance, and solved the relationship between the acoustic features and impression values. We can estimate appropriate acoustic features of new characters when we specify their impression values, and consequently generate a list of appropriate voice actors for these new characters based on their acoustic features. At the same time, we gathered documents describing these characters on the Web, and calculated their co-occurrence by a natural language processing tool. We can discuss how to assign voice actors to the game characters by observing the list of voice actors and co-occurrence-based character map.
