Kaji Yuki's great. I disagree with Asumi Kana; I don't think her voice is particularly standout. Ohara Sayaka and Tomatsu Haruka definitely deserve their awards as well!

Loved Kaji as Shion in No. 6 and as Satoru in Shinsekai Yori.

I love him on Magi too.

I'm happy for all the winners, but to see the name of Kana Asumi as best actress makes me even happier!^_^

^ Actually Kokoro Connect is an anime that presents challenges to the seiyuu in the main cast, particularly when they need to act like some other character when their bodies switch or a kid when they regress into younger age. Of course there is also the whole range of emotions from feeling trashed to raging to happiness to loving, and sometimes when they are being manipulated by Fusenkatsura. And I would definitely agree that Sawashiro performed superbly there too.

Having said that the acting that somehow left an unexpectedly deep impression to me is her voice in AKB0048 which is a voice that does not have the usual Sawashiro voice characteristics, at least very much toned down. And before that there is her baby voice in Beezelbub -- still wonder why out of all people she was picked to voice the baby.

Where's Miyuki?!!

Yuki Kaji haha, full of horrible characters, I know that has nothing to do with the voice acting itself, I just wanted to say it.

Kamiya Hiroshi is indeed fabulous.

kana asumi - did not expect give most of her characters are regular but few focus leads wonder late bloom on rise?
Late bloom? No way for Kana Asumi, who already won the Rookie Award back in 2009.

Kaji Yuki - Great to see him win ahead of Shingeki no Kyoujin! Looking forward to it!

Tanaka Mayumi - I don't think anyone beside her deserves this price. She is amazing!

I'm really interested because only 2 are listed for a Lifetime Achievement award. Won't you help out and fill the gaps?

Agreed. It wouldn't be fair if other seiyuu doesn't get award, but why HanaKana is still not getting any award? I'm pretty curious.
I remember tipping 3 up-and-rising seiyuu back in early 2009 that they will be very famous soon. Kana Hanazawa was one of the three. And there was Ayana Taketasu. Apparently both are still waiting for their turn. It is the third one that got recognition surprisingly quick as Aoi Yuuki won the Best Main Actress last year (perhaps thanks to Madoka).

Still I believe sooner or later the other two will get their recognition, but before that I would say that it is high time Youko Hikasa be recongnized. It is not fair that Aki Toyosaki won a bunch of awards while Hikasa has won none.

Damn, I forgot about Hikasa! I think she need to be more recognized so that she and Aki-chan have the same share in upcoming years.
