    Half of these are really obvious. There are *much* better choices for nearly every one they listed.

    Just two quick ones:

    2. Haruka Tomastsu: Morgiana and Asuna sound very similar. They should have gone with Hitei-hime (Katanagatari), Takatsuki Ichika (Ano Natsu de Matteru) and Rindou Ranmaru (Binbougami ga!)

    Or how about,
    7. Kana Hanazawa: Hyuuga Mahiru (Kami-sama Dolls) and Hasegawa Kobato (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai)

    Or Sakura Ichiko (Binbougami ga!) for Hanazawa Kana: http://ge.tt/7pSLT7a/v/0?c .

    I'm not sure which role I'd put opposite, but for Sawashiro Miyuki I'd pick Apo (Uchuu Kyoudai). My personal list includes Okamoto Nobuhiko as Accelerator (Index) and Otonashi Io (Acchi Kocchi), and Mizuhashi Kaori has quite the range even without going outside of Madoka (in addition to Mami, she voiced Kaname Tatsuya and Walpurgis Night).

    Like Ueda Kana: Fukuzawa Yumi (Maria-sama ga Miteru) and Rachel Alucard (Blazblue series)...

    Or even better, Nakahara Mai: Sugimoto Kuri (Aoi Hana), Furukawa Nagisa (Clannad), Shiino (Kannagi), May Wong (Kaleido Star), Morimiya Aono (sola) etc...

    This. Could also use luccini from strike witches instead of Beccy since pani poni is too old for most otaku to recall sadly.

    I don't know many of her roles, but she surprised me in Gundam 00 when comparing her performance in the first season where Luise Halevy was a spoiled brat and then in the second when she went batshit-insane and killed Neena Trinity. That sent cold chills down my spine. She's awesome.

    Oh, and Taokaka from BlazBlue? A bag of laughs.

    Don't forget Kikuko Inoue who voiced Belldandy
    in "Oh! My Goddess" and Mizuho Kazami in "Onegai Teacher" and "Onegai Twins" and many, many more.

    You must be absolutely deaf to call all these performances of Kikuko Inuoe as "surprising".

    Like what other said, she can perform other darker type of character too.

    Her performance as Lobelia Carlini in Sakura Taisen 3 game is a solid prove on her versatility

    Kikuko Inoue as Belldandy and as Mizuho Kazami when

    compared to

    as Panther from Saber Marionette
    and as I-no from Guilty Gear XX

    Then you didn't listen to Kikuko Inoue's darker and more evil roles. Her voice sounds totally different than that of sweet and lovely Belldandy etc., e.g. in Kiddy Grade as Alv or Claymore's Miria. Who's deaf again?

    A good example of Inoue's contrast: I-No from Guilty Gear.

    How about the Red Queen from "Miyuki-chan in Wonderland". Only a couple of lines, but certainly not a Belldandy voice

    I'm surprised Kugimiya Rie isn't on the list. If they didn't know I doubt anyone would realize that Alphonse(FMA), Karin(Bleach), Nemu(Bleach), and Mizore(R+V) shared the same Seiyuu.

    Funny thing is, she's so famous for her distinctive tsunderes that it's easy to forget how much range she has outside the archetype.

    Take Taiga from ToraDora and Yuki from Saki. The characters are so different I don't feel like connecting them at all. And, boy, did that whoever it was several seconds' stand-in in Achiga-hen fell short.

    Ok, I'll go for the goddess trio

    Kikuko Inoue :
    Belldandy (Ah! My goddess!) & Minerva (Fairy Tail)

    Yumi Touma :

    Urd (Ah! My goddess!) & Arpergillus Oryzae (Moyashimon)

    Aya Hisakawa :

    Skuld (Ah! My goddess!) & Unohana Retsu (Bleach)

    And since I mentioned Fairy Tail and Moyashimon...

    Sayaka Oohara:

    Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) & Yasuko "Mirano" Takasu (Toradora!)

    Most of the list aren't really shocking

    To Me , what was shocking is
    When Kamiya Hiroshi did the Tieria Girl Voice in Gundam

    When He/She do the cosplay , sneaking at the party
    Damn , that voice are very shocking

    Bad Engrish , Bad Grammar , I know

    Rei (Hayashibara Megumi) is Hello Kitty? Whoa. Still, I vote for Mitsuishi Kotono as Tsukino Usagi/Sailor Moon and Katsuragi Misato. I hope she does Usagi in the new Sailor Moon as well.

    Megumi Hayashibara has more range of character types and voices (Female Ranma, Eva Unit 01, Ayanami Rei, PenPen, Lina Inverse, ...), but if you're going to be surprised by Mitsuishi Kotono, be surprised by the difference between Sailor Moon and Ebichu. Yes, Ebichu. The porno hamster.
