Wow, almost all my favorite female seiyuu are up there! But, why the heck isn't Romi Paku on there! She's awesome! And my favorite, Saiga Mitsuki isn't up there either!! *Sighs*

She was unknown pretty much until Frontier even though she voiced Miyuki in LS, she's on the way up.

Saki-san... :(

Well, I guess there's some good points in that, because at least she reads my letters. Maybe she would ignore them if she were the most popular VA or so.

Counting how many times a voice actress was searched on Google is not the only way to measure their popularity.

My God, where, WHERE are Yukino Satsuki and Fumiko Orikasa?? Hayashibara is somewhere in 40s... facepalm.
Glad that Maaya Sakamoto is still on the top (thanks to this weird KnK), same with Mamiko Noto and Yui Horie... But Aya Hirano - this is unbearable >.<

Good point, personally though I only really liked her voice acting in Zettai Karen Children and not too many people even know about the series. Misa.. meh.. Konata.. meh.. Haruhi.. meh.

I so agree. She was amazing as Kaoru <3
Also, good to see that Kobayashi Yuu is getting recognition; she's got a fantastic voice and she plays her roles so well <3

Now now a lot of the English voice actors are pretty good. Look at Chris Patton, Vic Mignogna, Greg Ayers, Luci Cristian, & Allison Keith. Vic is gorgeous, and so is Chris. So... Yeah!

Maybe if mamiko noto could do more than one voice and quit voicing young males (ycuk at her Kanokon voice for the lead, like the anime it sucked.) horribly she might be higher on the list.

At least she's on the list... when you people like Kawasumi Ayako not on it and Romi Paku...

I wonder if they'll do a rating for the male voice actors next...

I'm surprised at the results though... I feel like some of the ones rated under 1 should be higher up.

On the other hand, I'm happy to see that somehow Sakura Tange's on the list. =D

You shouldn't make such generalization. While it's true that most English VAs are pretty terrible, there are some amazing voice actors in the industry.


edit: oh and everyone makes sure to go to Aya Hirano's profile and read the comments! I hear she's actually registered on this site and replying to fanboys and girls. She's simply amazing! :DDDDDDDDDDD

Why IS Hirano Aya so popular? It doesn't make any sense at all...*sigh*


No it makes a lot of sense, she's voiced some of the most popular characters of recent years and is pushing herself in public a lot more than anyone on the list not named Mizuki Nana. She has a tv show for herself ffs.. this list is based on amount of hits not the quality of the voice actors...

And while Hirano is nowhere near the best I see she gets a lot of blind hate because she's popular and has so many fanboys. I don't give a shit about her popularity and her annoying fanbase, I thought her Haruhi was a tour de force performance before I even knew who did it.

Unless Nana Mizuki would be selected in this year's Kohaku Uta Gassen, she would become No. 1 on the popularity list according to Google Trends. (But moreover, she's still popular now that's she's the Narrator in NHK's Music Japan, which has appeared on her live performance two times on that show)

Also, some seiyuus such as Megumi Hayashibara, Kikuko Inoue and the other vets are ranked lower in the list (which I can't bear to believe it) because the current generation of anime fans don't remember them.

Indeed. Laura Bailey for example is one of the best voice actresses I've heard for English. And though everyone hates on Crispin Freeman, you have to admit, you can remember the damn guy's voice. And I love Johnny Yong Bosch's boyish energies that he puts into his work.

Not everyone likes the Japanese audio, actually. I've met people before who like it in English.

True, his Kyon was memorable. I cannot for the life of me remember Wendee Lee's Haruhi though or her Konata. (Related to a recent discussion in the anime discussion forum)

Definitely agree with you there, I loved Laura Bailey in FMA and Blue Gender. And the big Yong Bosch gets all the popular lead male roles, so he's definitely got some appeal. Plus he was the original black power ranger of course.
Although I must have missed something, because from what I could tell everyone seemed to love Crispin Freeman, at least judging by the topics I've read through.
You've gotta give him credit alone for being able to play the role of Alucard...alongside Kyon. Talk about contrast.

ANYWAY, this topic isn't about English voice actors. NO! It's about Aya Hirano, and all the less important female VAs...right?
Oh Aya, I want to go shopping with you so bad.

Dunno how you guys could talk about english dubs like that when you grew up w/them. I happen to LIKE the english VAs.

Anyways, rave here is Hirano and VAs.

Like someone mentioned before, it should be that the material is being googled. If Hirano is an esteemed singer, then did voice artist work, pretty much out there. I mean look at Nana and Sakamoto. But I like Sakamoto better. Kugumiya (and not Pak...?), although I like her and i think she puts spirit in her roles, seems to be every freakin where somehow. Dunno how to explain Yukari.

It's tough for me to actually like the lady VAs. It happens that some of my TOPS are in the list, low or not, with the exception of one...and it breaks my heart.

not surprised, that Hirano Aya managed to be the top, though she's not that talented, in my opinion at least. Surely she's cute and she sometimes did good job like the role as Haruhi, but that's all i can say about her. There are much more talented voice actresses like Megumi Hayashibara, Megumi Ogata and Maaya Sakamoto.

Can you really with a straight face tell me the Japanese Alucard is better.

Serously why the Crispin hate, he is one of the best in the biz, oh wait he's American, he has to be hated here.
