Please come to the 14th Annual Honolulu Festival to watch Halko perform some of her famous hits in character.
Haruko Momoi, famous anime voice actress from Japan to participate at the 14th Annual Honolulu Festival
Haruko Momoi, affectionately referred to as “Halko” by her fans will be performing at the 14th Annual Honolulu Festival.
The nickname is taken from HAL 9000, the computer onboard the Discovery in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Halko is very famous in Japan for being a voice actress and singer/songwriter. She was also part of a singing team with Masaya Koike in a group called “UNDER17”. Together they performed songs for video games and anime.
Some of her notable voice roles include Komugi in The Soul Taker, Chika Minazuki in Ai Yori Aoshi , Tama-chan in Bottle Fairy and Ai Hayakawa in Final Fantasy: Unlimited.
In 2007, Halko published an autobiography entitled "Akihaba-LOVE", in which she tells of the major experiences that shaped her life, mainly those that were important in constructing her career as a musician and voice actress.
Halko is known to sing at concerts dressed up in costume and play-acting one of her many roles as an anime voice actress. This baby-faced idol can be seen dressed up in school uniform in the heart of Tokyo's electronics and gaming district Akihabara to promote her latest volume of memoirs. It isn’t surprising that this voice actress and singer of anime and video game songs has gained a following among the anime-obsessed males in Japan and beyond. She is popular with the Akiba-kei generation (a term that literally means "Akihabara style" and refers to young adult men interested in manga, character figures, and video games).
