On the Japanese web, Interview (Japanese: 面接, Mensetsu) refers to an online game to perform in various kind of situations or patterns serially designated by audio track. Since around late 2013, amateur singers and voice actors on Japanese audio sharing services have been enjoying playing and sharing this kind of game.


It's said that Interview Game started on Nana[1], a Japanese social networking and audio-sharing service popular among amateur singers and voice actors, around late 2013. Its oldest instance is "Voice Interview" (声面接 Koemensetsu) uploaded by Nana user Yamaoku Kuupon (山奥くうぽん) on August 25th 2013.[2] In this audio track, the uploader talking like interviewer at job interview or oral exam asks to perform in 8 designated patterns. This track was also made to premise that other users take this test by utilizing Nana's "collab" feature which enables users to overlap their voice on other users post by using its app only.


This Voice Interview checks your voice variations and whether you can act any kinds of characters.

Please do performance in this order:

Normal → Cool → Shota → Beautiful → Kawaii → Loli → Elder → Free style


"Voice Interview" succeeded to gain many participants and followers[3], and made them start making their own versions.[4] As those followers creations were all named "XX Interview" (XX面接) in the manner of the original one, "Interview" has become the generic term for this kind of online games.

The further increase of Interview Games online presence was brought by Jagariko Interview (演技力じゃがりこ面接) which became popular on Nana, MixChannel[5] and Twitter in late 2017 as well as among YouTubers and Virtual YouTubers outside the audio-sharing services in around early 2018. Also, like "Dame Interview" (だめ演技力面接) or Ways to Say "Dame", it's been sometimes happened that Interview Games participants posts uploaded to TikTok turn into fodder for lip dub videos by TikTokers since around the middle of that year.
