it sounds appealing and fun but somehow i feel like i'll end up saying things like "shut up, i decide what to do" or "don't tell me what to do" =p

Norio Wakamoto are Kugimiya are hllarious! !

I thought, "is this real? (lol) .

Do we really need an EARNEST Navigation voice? ;) Like Furuya, Norio and Kugimiya (don't tell me to shut up. I'm focusing!)? You'd be distracted. Okay, so I'm used to the monotone smart voice.

Holy crap! They really have some icons doing these voices. I don't know if I want a tsundere (Kugimiya Rie) screaming directions at me for 2-3 hour trip though. -__-

They need Fukuyama Jun on the list. I could definetely see him as a GPS voice.

I'd only get this if english dubbed anime voices were on it.

A fail is you


I'm sorry, but I don't know Japanese at all, cant read it, hear it, speak it, etc.

It's just a bunch of gibberish to me.


Try learning it then.
The world's pretty lame only speaking one language.


Nah thanks, too lazy to learn it, plus I procrastinate alot.
