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, we in America do have some of those assholes who clear the whole shelf of a store-exclusive Amiibo to sell them at insane prices on eBay. Did Japan have similar incidents of that?

    So her character trailer just came out, huh? How long until that dipshit Schreier writes an article forcing Kamitani to apologize for his character designs.

    You sure about that? Because I’ve been paying a LOT of attention to the Japanese side of both the Madoka and Nanoha fanbases (mainly via Pixiv, but also some NicoDouga and 2chan), and it seems to me like the dark co-stars get quite a bit more loved than the titular characters.

    At least it isn’t fucking Cure Black again (one of the only Precure I recall seeing on lists like this on more than one occasion). I swear, it feels to me like people vote for her by virtue of her being “first” and thus representing the whole franchise (Cure White, on the other hand, gets neglected, to say nothing of all the far better Cures that came afterwards; on a side note, it really sucks that Precures tend to initially come in pairs, but one is more of a main than the other just because) …

    But Kore Zombie doesn’t have mahou shoujo. It has maSou shoujo (also, one of them technically isn’t even a shoujo).
