Sakura Momoko and dia – Danwei

From Danwei:

Why do so many Chinese starlets speak in such whiny, nasal, childish voices? Is dia (Âó≤) really supposed to be cute? And if it is, who in the world is responsible for creating that impression?

An article in this week’s New Century Weekly makes it possible to pin the blame on one person. And that person is….Chibi Maruko-chan.

Or, rather, the voice-actor behind the first edition of the Chibi Maruko-chan (in Chinese, 樱桃小丸子) cartoon series, Feng Youwei. Feng is the voice behind several of the most popular import cartoon characters in China Рbesides Maruko, she did the voice of the Conan the Detective(神探柯南) in early seasons of that series, as well as the title character in Crayon Shin-chan(蜡笔小新).
