Seiyuu Close-up Thingy: Uchida Maaya

Translated from her blog at

Today was my 23rd birthday.

Thank you everyone who sent me messages congratulating me!
It makes me feel warm inside and really happy(≧▽≦)

With that said,
Battle-san  from my new apartment had a birthday event for me~♪
I received birthday wishes from everyone all over the place
