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

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 ton of roles coming in all sorts of archetypes; it’s just that her tsundere roles have been the most over-hyped ever since Shana, thus why we mainly hear about them.

Never saw MariMite, but if Touko’s non-tsundere, then see above.

    @ 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 …

    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 …

    How can the coupling from the OreImo ending not make this list?

    He actually has a few awesome moments in some of the game’s routes. It saddens me how the anime incarnation is the only one most people know.

    BTW, have you seen the artstyle for the recent line of video games (re:Digitize, Decode, and Cyber Sleuth)? For a while now, the franchise seems to have been going for more of a, I guess you could say “mature” aesthetic. In fact, Bamco themselves are making it no secret that the target audience for Digimon is shifting from young children to adults who initially grew up with the first Digimon Adventure. This is probably their way of reacting to the retro tributes (fanart, videos, etc.) to the …

    Technically, Sailor Moon Crystal didn’t have character “changes” as their designs and personalities were more in line with the original manga. For fans dedicated enough to have checked out the source material, I doubt the “changes” in Crystal would’ve been all that unsettling. Though, animation-wise, I could see why a few people would be put off by the CG abuse.

    Eh…. she has a killer bod, but I can’t say I’m overly fond of the face-covering helmet fetish that this franchise has with a lot of its humanoid monsters.
