Batou's cool but it might have been even better if they also got Tamagawa Sakiko (who voiced the Tachikomas).

I'm pretty sure that's Kugimiya Rie. I don't know why she isn't credited though.

I'd have a hard time choosing a voice for my car but in the end Wakamoto Norio would probably have the most value.

Sawashiro Miyuki is also impressive, she does two completely different voices.

Norio would be epic, but Miyuki would be awesome too, depending which of her voices she uses. I want Aruruu GPS.

I listened to the samples. Cute :P

Alas this feature would be useless to me. I only use a GPS to show where I am on the map.

Wakamoto Norio would be fun, and I love Furuya Tohru XD He was so awesome at AX a few years ago. At his panel, he took voice requests, and would say stuff in whatever of his character voices you wanted XD

I think the closest we have to something like this is the Knight Rider GPS (which I also think is pretty awesome, lol)

Norio Wakamoto and Akio Ohtsuka would be awesome to have.

I'd kill for Mamiko Noto, Ayako Kawasumi, or Sayaka Ohara though :3

Ahaha, this is awesome. The idea of GPS with personality is cool enough, but anime personality? Epic.

oh, these little earthquakes

Charles di Brittania commands you: turn right!
Turn left~kuma!

I'm just imagining things. Anyhow, this is pretty cool. I don't think that my dad would get the directions though... Now, where's Fukuyama Jun? =P

Unfortunately, I don't drive cars.

But.. The idea of Kugi acting as the car navigator sounds rather strange. Do people even need such a device in the first place? Of course, I support the idea of making the navigation device because Kugi will have an extra part-time job. Life isn't easy during the recession.

However, I wouldn't buy a car navigation device though. (laugh)

Aw man, to have Wakamoto Norio commanding directions in my car! I wouldn't dare make a wrong turn! Cell would be yelling at me in his gruff voice to turn the heck back around! lol!

This sounds like a great idea. Call me when a version with either Yukari Tamura or Kaori Mizuhashi gets released.

I want it.

I usually know where the hell I'm going, but I wouldn't mind having Kugimiya Rie or Wakamoto Norio directing me, even though I won't understand a damn word they're saying. ;D
