Comment on Top 20 Seiyuu with the Sexiest Voices by Yamato:

Avatar of Yamato

I agree with Anon 11:00. I consider myself firmly against Kugimiya type-casting, but even I’d be willing to say that when she isn’t being type-casted, she’s actually quite good. Seriously, go watch her role in Rosario+Vampire, it’s hard to even tell that it’s her. I’d be willing to say that her standard voice is quite cute as well, but unfortunately, I can’t listen to it anymore without shitty characters like Louise and Aria coming to my mind. -_- Would be nice if I could displace such characters from my head at some point, because they’re about the only thing ruining her more decent roles for me.

    @ Anon 22:17 While it is true that people should be left to their own personal tastes so long as they don’t interfere with others, I do think Anon 11:56 makes a point: some things tend to be overhyped because the people who like them never bothered to expand their horizons and experience stuff of arguably higher quality (or worse, some of them automatically assume that what they like is the best there is and outright refuse to give anything else a fair shot). Of course, people can like what …

    @ Anon 11:45 I was just stating an example. Although, I did choose Mizore as my example because I find her to be the most far removed from Rie’s standard tsundere voice (at least out of the roles that I’ve heard so far), whereas with characters like Alphonse and Ikuto, it’s still somewhat easy to tell that it’s her. At any rate, they all demonstrate that the so-called “tsundere queen” can actually do something besides tsundere. In fact, much like any professional seiyuu, she’s actually landed a …

    Apparently so. I didn’t even know her English name myself before I saw this list followed by a quick search just to confirm. Anyway, I think the replies to my comment prove my point: people are far more liable to recognize her by her original name. I know Sankaku Complex has a tendency to use English names (namely with Pokemon), but it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that this is one case of the English name being too obscure to be worth using. It’s almost up there with referring to Goku as Zero.

    But Homura probably didn’t qualify for the list because she already starred. Her name might not be in the title, and she spent the first half keeping to the shadows as Madoka and her merry friends went on their blissfully unaware magical girl adventures, but it’s still essentially HER story about keeping that titular character alive. And if you don’t wanna believe that she starred in the series, she most definitely starred in Rebellion.

    Vi Graythorn? OK, seriously, does anyone even use the Case Closed names at this point? Adult Swim canceled the show about a decade ago (by which point, I don’t think Ai even had a chance to appear), and last I checked Funimation didn’t even continue the DVDs.

    For what it’s worth, she did have the longest history as a magical girl (discounting Homura’s repeat time loops), which also included an association with Kyouko (one which, despite being Mami’s fellow veteran, barely ever got focused on in either the series or the movies). This backstory has been featured in various media like the third CD drama, the Different Story manga, and the PSP game, but it has yet to be animated.

    Is Moshidora really a sports series, though? Been a while since I saw it, but I recall it being more of an economics edutainment anime that just happened to use sports as a backdrop.
