I too noticed a sudden change in her voice.

Regardless, I offer her many congratulations. ^^;

Guess it wasn't just me when I thought Mikado-sensei's voice sounded different when I watched the raw the first time around. Probably helps that I use headphones to listen to the episodes. Makes noticing voice changes pretty easy.

Me either, whether its the manga or the previous series or whatever she was never a major character.

She was too insignificant of a character for me to notice a change even though I love the series.

Actually I noticed the change as well when I saw Ep.2, independent of the 2ch (which I checked later). It is because I have a habit of checking the seiyuu of the supporting characters that stand out in the episode. In Ep.2's case it is the school doctor.

I wondered why Ryoko's voice was a little off.

Won't affect the series for me though.

Actually this announcement CAME LATE. When Ep.2 was aired, fans in Japan already noticed that the seiyuu for Mikado Ryoko (the school doctor) had been changed to Sakurai Harumi. This kind of cast change should have been announced before the new seiyuu's voice was heard. Otherwise it would just create needless speculation from fans about what had happened to the original seiyuu.

Oh, I didn't even notice it.

Fans in Japan can be really meticulous in checking details in anime. Even if they might have not been able to tell a seiyuu was changed when they heard the voice, many actually read the ED credits at the end of each episode (how many overseas fans do that??) and this was how they found out (or confirmed) a change had been made.


Oh that's true they can read it,in compare to us who can't, but oh well at least they didn't cancel or delayed it and I like to see Sakurai performance's
