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 …

    Well shit, I already bought some of these Aquaplus games off of Melonbooks’s digital store. I’m hoping the Vita version is simply a straight-up port, not something that’s enhanced over the PC version in any way.

  • Nanoha Vivid Magical Bathing Anime:
    Yeah, it kinda bugs me how all of the popular light novels and their anime adaptations just HAVE to include a harem. Even if romantic love triangles and fanservice aren’t the primary focus, and the story’s far more action-oriented, the male lead’s still turned into an oblivious player who picks up a new girl every couple chapters or so (ex. Magical Index and Sword Art Online). I’m certainly not complaining about, say, Seiri Fukiyose’s mere existence as a character, but seriously, she just kinda …

    At least the characters are allowed to age (and damn, did they age well).

    “That said, it is more like two lolis making another loli.” Come to think of it, while not exactly the same, the series actually did have one loli making another loli (Alicia to Fate).

    Now be nice. I’m sure this person has their reasons, though I’d be curious to hear what they are. Personally, while I too am a fan of the series, I could see why some might be turned off by it. For one thing, I think the series gets way too much hype for having a modern setting instead of medieval fantasy. I’d blame at least some of this on the fact that RPGs were a niche market in the west during the ’90s, so our selection was somewhat limited (Megami Tensei, a game set in modern Tokyo, was …
