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 …

    “tfw everyone will remember R+V as a smarmy harem love comedy, and not the gorgeous shounen battle epic Ikeda actually made” To be fair, it is quite a fanservicey series with a large cast of female characters. I agree with everything you said, though.

  • Top 10 Worst Manga-to-Anime Adaptations:
    In retrospect, the first FMA anime doesn’t hold a candle to the manga/Brotherhood, but for an anime-original plot, I still think it was pretty decent. I like that it had a fair bit of time to work on its story rather than rush to a conclusion in its last couple episodes like a lot of anime that follow the accurately manga at first. If I had to cite one of its major problems, it’s that it tried to make everything a bit too dark and serious compared to the manga (hell, an early filler episode …

    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.

  • Top 20 Prettiest Mahou Shoujo:
    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.
