Sore ga Seiyuu is taking its message to… the news?

Over the past couple of days, the official Sore ga Seiyuu! anime website updated with a pair of new TV commercials. Rather than use standard TV spots, though, the advertisements challenge the show’s cast to describe the series in a number of contexts.

These first two ads see the actresses playing the parts of newscasters and TV shopping channel hosts, respectively.
