Hmmmm... good list.. but where's Sugita Tomokazu? ):

THIS and... Where's Fukuyama Jun? :|


Sugita and Fukuyama are two of the most talented seiyuu, I believe. It's a pity.

It is just plain weird for that Kimura Subaru guy in the list but not kana hanazawa ,Tomokazu Sugita,horie yui or kugimiya rie.


I've noticed that people in the industry from the past often have something against the whole moeblob culture of these days, so it wouldn't be a surprised that they dislike the current moeblob seiyuus too.


there smart people fans should leran from

...My god. How can someone actually defend the way Hirano Aya acted on twitter.

I personally never mind the personal life of seiyuu as long as they still can voice act...at least as good as usual. Industry pay them for their voices, not for their personal voice.

...

...

...

But why the hack I can't see Wakamoto there??? Blasphemy!!!

Paku Romi?? Let's see..

*checks her voice acting roles*

What the. She voiced some male characters and what's funny is that I just finished watching Kaiba where she voiced Popo (a male character).

Pretty talented seiyuu.

Good to see Miyano there.


All questions about her #1 spot disappear once you realize that she voiced both EDWARD ELRIC (FMA), TERESA (Claymore) *and* OSAKI NANA (Nana).

That's some serious talent, believably voicing anything from a bullheaded boy to an ultrafeminine tranquil lady-knight beauty to a boisterous female punk rocker.

Rather funny how she falls just short of the age-40 criteria for young seiyuu and is HIGHLY likely to top the veteran-seiyuu list this time next year (the high points for veterans being due to a larger voting pool passing out the points).

...kinda strange how they claim everywhere she speaks fluent Korean but she never does Korean dubs of her own Japanese roles, though. Or is she too expensive for them to afford??

No Wakamoto?!?

What!

I didn't say her acting. I said her voice... not that I can tell if her acting is good or not since I don't know Japanese. All I know is that her voice is adorable and I can't get enough of it.

...Well, I'm not gong to spend a lot of time debating a matter of pure preference, but the only Omigawa role I've ever been able to stand (voice or acting) is Nazuna, and only because I'm able to completely forget it's her. Whatever works for you, though.

I'm kind of surprised that Subaru Kimura is on there, however. He only has two roles, one of them being Kanba from Mawaru Penguindrum, which hasn't even finished airing. It must be because he other role is from Doraemon?


Yes, that's the one. The streaming site I watch says it's an CM to Doraemon because the TV channel that aired the show also shows Doraemon, and according to the show they talked how big is change of this "national" anime's seiyuu swap in 2005. (+ being 14 and 2nd role to get Giant. He had one role before getting it)

Well I guess it is all taste, but I personally think Omigawa has one of the worst voice actress ever. It is both voice + acting ability wise. She give too much power in her voice when it is not needed, over-exaggerate everything to make my ears bleed, kills atmosphere by having exact same voice and emotion in every single character she is involved, and most of all, the fact that she appears a lot in series from SHAFT.

Thus, I never ever expected her to be in the list of respective seiyuus, knowing her acting is atrocious.

Just one of my favorites made it to the young seiyu list (Aya Hirano YAY!)

Mor importantly, in the vet seiyu rankings, where the HELL is Atsuko Tanaka?!?
