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

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 they like, but if a MAJORITY of people enjoy crap, and they can’t at least try to look beyond their current interests, then the industry is only going to pander to their shitty tastes. This is why Squenix milked Final Fantasy VII to death with that damnedable compilation, and thanks to the likes of Call of Duty and Halo, there’s almost no place for you in western mainstream gaming if you’re not a Michael Bay-level war fetishist. In Kugimiya’s case, her fanboys are the reason why J.C. Staff couldn’t adapt some of the light novels featuring her worth crap.

    @ 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 …

    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 …

  • Sailor Moon Crystal Quite Bedazzling:
    Yes, please elaborate on this. If you’re talking about the transformations being more conservative and less sexualized, that has less to do with an attempt to appeal towards Americans and more to do with Japanese censorship standards mirroring that of the west in recent years. I mean, the transformation sequence reminded me more of Precure (with less focus on the glowy nude body and getting almost immediately to the magical ribbon-wrapping), and Precure has almost zero presence in the west, so …

  • Sailor Moon Crystal Quite Bedazzling:
    What yuriphoria said, this is pretty much Sailor Moon getting the Brotherhood treatment. I don’t think it’s been 100% confirmed yet, but aside from the fact that this is being done long after the manga’s done and thus no longer a need for filler, the artstyle should be a huge indicator that they’re going this route. The first episode also gave us a few other things worth looking for (the episode’s title being exactly like that of the first manga chapter, Tuxedo Mask not throwing a single rose, …

    Hell, we don’t even need all of them introduced. Just wait until Mars shows up (I expect in episode 3), then the differences between the manga and the first anime should be more readily apparent.

  • Sailor Moon Crystal Quite Bedazzling:
    S (series 3) was widely regarded as the best series. I believe it’s SuperS (series 4) where the divergences from the manga started to become more of an issue (partly due to SuperS being mostly filler and Sailor Stars outright pissing Takeuchi off with the changes made to the Starlights).

  • Top 30 Anime Idols:
    Seriously, being designated the main character is pretty much the only thing she has going for her. I really hate it when someone decides that MC position should go to one of the most average characters there is. There is a difference between being well-rounded, and being just plain, you know. I guess to be fair, “main” is very loose with this franchise considering all the girls get a decent amount of focus (and in the original game, you’re really just expected to focus on one girl with no …
