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 …

    This is true. The sad thing is that people were begging them to pick up Little Busters! for years but they never got around to it. Though, KyoAni doesn’t seem to get near as much attention now as they did in the years following their mega success of Haruhi. I think they killed most of their credibility with the Endless Eight fiasco. Not to mention that while their highly detailed animation techniques were quite a feat back in the day, it hardly seems all that special given the general quality …

  • Seiyuu Shirakawa Sumiko Passes Away:
    I stand corrected; looking at her Japanese wiki entry (rather than her pitifully short English entry), it seems that she DID branch out to quite a number of roles early on in her career. However, it seems that once the ’70s were over, she began to restrict herself strictly to Doraemon and Sazae-san.

  • Seiyuu Shirakawa Sumiko Passes Away:
    Agreed that the author’s choice of words are a little off. She may’ve had a long-running career in two shows that are widely popular in Japan, yet those same two shows seem to get surprisingly little recognition outside of Japan (even among otaku, oddly), and she never exactly branched out to a variety of other roles in all this time either (unlike most seiyuu who DO get more recognition internationally). Hell, I probably wouldn’t have even heard her myself if not for the fact that she makes a …

    Oh thank god, someone else out there thinks that Clannad is overrated as hell. Seriously, it’s like everyone who talks about it forget that Air and Kanon existed (both far superior series). Also, fuck that reset button ending.

  • Top 10 Best Anime, According to Anikore:
    I don’t mind Code Geass on there. I DO, however, mind that both Code Geass and Code Geass R2 are counted as separate entries. Fuck that, they should both count as the same thing. Also, Madoka is on the full list. However, it ties for 18th place along with three other series: Scientific Railgun, Hyouka, and Gurren Lagann. And just to add salt in the wound, it’s two places below Sword Art Online (16th).
