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 …

    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 …

    @Anon 9:50 Your point? Goten and especially Gohan may not exactly be perfect inheritors of their father’s traits, but nonetheless, Goku’s children seem to act more or less as a reflection of himself in terms of the story. I realize that by this logic, every parent+child should be expected to share a voice actor, but then again, it’s really not often that we have a series in which the viewers see firsthand a child main eventually grow up to have children of their own.

    Wow… you never watched an English dub since years before Toonami’s first cancellation, have you? Well, I’ve kinda been in the same boat as you for a while, but trust me, while I can perfectly understand preferring the Japanese originals (and I still do favor them myself), English dubbing has improved tremendously over the last decade. Hell, just watch the rebooted Toonami block just to get a glimpse at the modern-day standards. Even DBZ technically has a proper dub now via Kai, and One Piece. …

    Nope, Goku’s voice is fine. It suits his naivety and shows that, in some ways, he never really changed from his childhood (Masako Nozawa, the seiyuu in question, having voiced him throughout his entire lifetime). The problem is, most people in the west assume he’s supposed to be Japanese Superman, thanks in part to a now-defunct English dub fucking around with his character.
