It seems like people has forgotten that voice actresses/actors are there to voice act and not to sing. @.@

I like Hirano Aya and Mizuki Nana. and I must say, the title is well deserved by Hirano Aya. No arguments there. ^^

She has so many unpopular works, I'm sure you won't even recognize her voice, and just find it amazing. ^.^

I'm sick of people voting for those girls as idols instead of voting for them as voice actors. What a Failure.

I believe Hirano Aya is also an idol... so yes, she has many fans for different reasons.

Also, I don't get why everyone says Sakamoto Maaya or Inoue Marina deserve number 1. They both just sound like another seiyuu who can voice boyish characters. I believe they both can sing, but as someone said before, we're judging them on voice acting, not singing.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Did anyone else notice that almost every seiyuu in the top ten or so had a role in Umineko? *shifty eyes* xD

Man, Megumi Hayashibara is down to 24? Times do change, don't they? She was -the- seiyuu of the 90s...

Cause the same top seiyuus get the jobs? :p

I consider ALL of these seiyuu polls to be biased, either with sampling bias, self-answer bias or whatever. There is no way a error-free survey can be done to measure the true popularity of seiyuus in the population.

Best answer = screw the list and rout for your own favourite.

Heheh, I prefer Haruhi, not Hirano..
I choose Hirano because she is Haruhi's voice actress..
If that person was kugimiya, np with me..

But, the boyish voice of her..
She use her boyish voice even when singing, her real voice more girly than haruhi..

I didn't know that this thread was still going, lol.

Aside from a few (like Marina? And Suzuki?), I think the TOP 10 seiyuu in the update list has been looking almost like that for 3 years in Voice NEWTYPE....really feels like it.

At least, I like some of them. Yay for Sakurai.

Edit: should Nakajima even be up there?!

What the fuck is wrong with you. Aya Hirano sounds THE SAME IN EVERY ROLE EVER, unlike Inoue Marina.

Lack of FukuJun on Newtypes poll?

I see at least the readers and voters there have some taste. I suppose since there are no other roles for him to ham, his popularity is slipping (thank goodness, the mediocrity could kill a person).

What the heck, she has one of the best and most original voices on the whole seiyuu market, she should be higher.

>*4, 262 Nakamura Yuichi

Now this is awesome. Ah Japan, sometimes you do have good taste (Kamiya Hiroshi isn't my cup of tea though)

I agree, he's just too overrated because of one role, not that I don't like him, but he's far from being the best male seiyuu right now.

I totally agree with you on this, I was totally disappointed to see her that low, but then I realise that the anime audience likes cute seiyuu who mostly do moe roles. Tanaka Rie is a goddess veteran and she's that low on the polls? Oh please! It depends on the marketability of the seiyuu, not so much their talent.

Sawashiro is completely amazing, but because she rarely voices moe characters (she does action girls, tomboys, guys), she'd hardly get the attention she deserves.

Most of these seems like they were just based one or two extremely popular role that they had. Probably had more to do with the popularity of the show and character than actual talent of the VA. I tend to dislike most of the popular shows so its all a surprise to me. Not saying that they're not good since it seems like all of the VAs do awesome jobs to me.

Ono Daisuke is #2 yaaaay~ He sure made a long way since the days of Koizumi :D
(but wow Kamiyan sure has a big lead)
That male seiyuu list is near perfection... almost all my favorite seiyuu are on it :)

As for female voice actress, I have to admit that aside from Hirano Aya and Inoue Marina who have a very recognizable voice, I can only recognize the female seiyuus that usually voice boys.... ^^; (hmm, I also like Inoue better when she's voicing boys XD)

Quite sad that Miyuki Sawashiro got such a low rank. :( She has such a easy to listen to and pretty voice. :(

Aya Hirano is No. 1 for pumping up peni--ahem, for having an annoying, nasal voi--ahem, for having a....voice. :P

Nana Mizuki is No. 2. Not bad. Though I'd say she's more of a singer than a VA.

Miyuki Sawashiro or Nana Mizuki should've topped Aya Hirano, for sure. =_=

Why Aya is so popular. Her voice as seiyuu are not smth special. Probably it's just becqaause she accept every voice job she could make (((. Nana or Tamura are much better as seiyuu

i don't hate her. But I just think she is a terrible VA

She has the same tone in her voice in nearly every role and anime she has been in. Her voice is always the same. She has no talent compared to other VA's in manipulating her voice

As to why she is so popular Suzumiya Haruhi Series made her a star sadly she uses nearly the same voice in every anime she is in

She is like that dude who voices Zoro in One Piece. He uses almost exactly the same voice in every anime he is in +_+

Well, to my sadness and to your joy Aya's career is practically over now

She was fantastic as Haruhi, perfect even (don't know or care much about her other roles and I hate Lucky Star) and this worries me greatly. WTF are they going to do with Haruhi now...

Stupid Kamiya is the first...not even gonna comment on that.
Couldn't care less for Hirano, Mizuki, Tamura and Chihara (pfffffffffff). Maaya is the best but oh, whatever.
Paku Romi is always the same. Suzumura and Mamoru are the best. I also like Nakamura, Fukuyama and Yoshino as voice actors.
Anyway, this is the Japanese bad taste LOL

I don't know what to say about Aya. I like ver voice pretty mush but i didn't expect she will be the first. Anyway, I'm happy for her, Paku Romi and Sakamoto Maaya. Hope, Sawashiro Miyuki will be higher.

About males. OH, YES!!! Kamiya Hiroshi, Ono Daisuke, Sugita Tomokazu, Nakamura Yuichi, Suzumura Kenichi, Fukuyama Jun and my adorable Miyano Mamoru are so high! Kyaaa~ Of course, I would like to see Mamo-chan heading the Popularity Ranking, but... he is 9th and it is not bad^^
