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 …

  • Top 10 Sexiest Anime Characters:
    @Anon 4:58 I think “sexy” is, quite simply, whatever you personally find to be sexually stimulating. If you’re into girls who act shy, then shy girls are sexy. If you’re into lolis, then lolis are sexy. If you’re into huge tits…. I sure as hell find those sexy. I mean, Nodoka Haramura may not exactly act like a seductress, but when she has a rack like that, there’s no way in hell I’d consider her to be not sexy. As for Mio, even in spite of K-ON!’s cutesy artstyle, have you ever seen Mio in a …

    I agree with the guy who made that list, Azusa is best. And previously, I’d have said Takane or Miki are potentially second favorites, but lately, that position’s been taken up by Hibiki after I’ve taken more notice of her (my god, does she make gold hoop earrings look good). They’re definitely still high up there, however.

    I do think Akeno’s better than Rias, but only marginally. She probably got on there due to main heroine bias, but it could be a lot worse (Da Capo and IM@s mains… just, meh). Anyway, not a bad list. I’m not sure if I’d rate most of these girls close to my “best of all time” rankings, but they’re hot characters nonetheless, with most of them easily being my favorite for their respective series (especially dat Azusa ^^). My only real objections are Haruna, Mikan, and Oriana. I’m a Lala fan …

  • Clannad Gets Steam Release:
    The lack of Kotomi in those omake greatly concerns me. The best girl has always been lacking in exposure… hell, I didn’t even know about her prior to watching the anime (her and Yukine, though at least the latter can be excused due to being gypped out of being one of the main girls).

  • Top 30 Anime That Got You Into Anime:
    All the sadder considering this is a JAPANESE list. Usually when natives are getting asked this type of question, you’d expect to hear about really, really, really old shit like Lupin, Mahoutsukai Sally, or something. The most truly ancient anime on this list are Doraemon, Space Battleship Yamato, and the original Gundam (which, sadly, got beaten out by SEED). A few of the others are still pretty old, but about 2/3 of the entire list didn’t even exist prior to the new millennium. Also, Sword …
