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 …

    Yeah, it’s nice to see there were a fair number of classic characters here. For a minute, I was worried this thing would be utterly dominated by KanColle, much like the doujin scene was.

  • Dog Days Season 3 Announced:
    Haven’t read the LN, but I keep hearing that the source material was crappy to begin with. Still, I did get a glimpse at a couple parts on Baka-Tsuki, particularly the anime’s finale. Whereas the anime ended up on ANOTHER accidental pervert slap (because that’s apparently what everyone wants to see, more abusive tsundere shit), the novel has a more touching scene where Riko left behind a message stating that her heart was stolen, so I’d agree that’s some crappy adapting there. I also get the …

  • Dog Days Season 3 Announced:
    I also wouldn’t mind more OreShura (though the manga’s far better). Sadly, I get the feeling NONE of the above-mentioned are going to come to fruition, meanwhile… http://www.otakutale.com/2014/new-hidan-no-aria-project-revealed/ …three years of inactivity apparently did nothing to bury this steaming pile. -_-

  • PS4 Hits 10 Million:
    Indeed, and it greatly disturbs me how some parts of the game industry are trying so damn hard to drive away the concept of game ownership. Letting us “borrow the license”? Man, fuck that noise.

  • Dragon Quest Dancer Cosplay by Nonsummerjack:
    Tell that to the taggers on e-hentai (all the sadder when you consider e-hentai had Flora doujinshi long before the official English localization was ever a thing), among other places.
