Anime Relations: Shakugan no Shana, Zero no Tsukaima, Toradora!, Hidan no Aria, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?, Dragon Crisis!
Yesterday on ANN they had a news post about a promo for Hidan no Aria, a new anime starting in April. And it revealed the voice actors for the two main characters: Aria will be played by Rie Kugimiya and Kinji will be played by Junji Majima!! This reunites the voice actors of the two main characters from my third favorite anime (Taiga and Ryuuji from Toradora!). Pretty cool. I'm really looking forward to this series now. :)

But yeah, I think it's pretty funny when this kind of thing happens. It's the same thing that happened with Shana and Zero no Tsukaima, except the male character was played by a different guy in those (Satoshi Hino), but that was also Rie Kugimiya. This season Rie and Junji also have staring roles, but they're in different series. As I mentioned in my last post, Rie plays Rose in Dragon Crisis! and Junji plays Aikawa in Zombie.

Oh, and you know what else?? All six of these shows mentioned were based on light novel series! I'm kind of surprised that Rie isn't playing Haruna in the Zombie anime. It's like if someone's making an anime that includes a bad-ass petite girl as a main character, they get Rie Kugimiya on speed dial!! XD

Anyway, I just thought it was cool. Laters!
