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 …

    However, 1-Up Mushrooms exist, so I’d think it’s all good.

    What kind of sewer uses titanic, green pipes that make some nifty sound-effect whenever you go in them?

    Are such worlds really worth living in, though? Yeah, there’s tons of hot, ass-kicking chicks, but 1) how do we know that that’s the norm in their world rather than the story happening to focus on a small number of extremely well-endowed types, and 2) what luck does the average Joe have of scoring with them? Still, just having a world where Katsuragi is real doesn’t seem too bad.

    I’d actually like to live in a world where you could be some kind of monster-raiser (with mechanics far more convenient than a real life animal-tamer and creatures with a mortality rate far lower than real life pets). Still, I’d have to question one’s sanity if you’d want to live in the world of Persona 4 (or any other Megami Tensei game for that matter, though granted, P4’s a lot more optimistic in comparison). Consider you’re living in some kind of eerie, often fog-smitten village with …

    Honestly, I was thinking she resembled Idol Master’s Takane before I ever considered Nao from Charlotte. Speaking of Idol Master, I’ve yet to see a stronger character resemblance than Azusa and Mayoi Neko Overrun’s Otome.
