    Seriously, the lobotomy was number 1? The only thing good about the character was the propaganda art. Come to think about it that pretty much summarizes the entire series. (Well Misato was cool.)... More

    I forget what episode it was in, but the cast sang the theme song for Love Hina and each character got a couple of lines. Haruka's voice was so sweet.... More

    This. Kitamura was grade A awesome in Campione, even though that show wasn't exactly good. I'll add Mamiko Noto and Kanae Itou as MIA here, especially Mamiko. And I don't see anyone calling for Aya Endou... More


Fans have been polled concerning the seiyuu they find to have the most surprising age, whether it be by dint of their youthful appearance or the age of the characters they still manage to voice convincingly – with Masako Nozawa (the voice of the young fighters in DBZ) proving to be the most shocking.

New Megumi Hayashibara & Slayers Music Due

New Megumi Hayashibara & Slayers Revolution Music Due

I couldn’t help but notice the musical career of the great 林原めぐみ / Megumi Hayashibara is set to get a boost with release of two new titles coinciding with the onset of Slayers Revolution. Announced is “Plenty of Grit/Revolution”, the Slayers Revolution OP/ED single, due July the 23rd, and スレイヤーズ MEGUMIX / Slayers MEGUMIX, a 3 CD album due June the 25th, coming with a huge variety of extras.

A development sure to please Slayers and Megumi fans alike (if there can be said to be much difference between the two).

Slayers Revolution Manga Starts

Slayers Revolution Manga starting in Dragon Age

The long awaited release of the new Slayers anime, Slayers Revolution, after an 11 year hiatus, is heating up with the start of the manga version, being serialised in Dragon Age – see here for some more detail. Whilst it would probably be an exaggeration to say the manga adaptations of Slayers have ever been highly regarded in comparison to the excellent anime and novels, it is heartening to see Lina Inverse and company back in action after such a long gap – who can doubt that Megumi Hayashibara will reprise her role with as much gusto as ever?
