Just clicked on this series to check it out and was really surprised to see Tsuchiya's name in the cast list! I'm curious how she would be as a seiyuu. I like her, she's a hardworking and talented actress.

Really exicted for this one!

Interesting choices. I'm really looking forward to this anime, it seems to have potential.

I'm fine with Aoi Yuuki-seems like a good fit. Hope the live actors do a decent job with our MC.

A bunch of live-action actors and Aoi Yuuki? Pretty solid.

Though I think the manga is average at best I will see if Kajiura and these guys can save it.

Looks great.

Going by what you said, wouldn't it be Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji for Kito Akari which is more recent AND more popular?

Wouldn't putting the name of a character the seiyuu voiced be more helpful?
If you have more questions regarding to how the news was posted, please ask the news mod. who posted it. I don't think I can answer further because I rarely post news now except rankings.

As for personal opinions:
[spoiler]@hanimebib
Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? (TV) was chosen to be listed probably because the news mod. who posted it thinks it's more recent.

@naki12
I don't remember exactly why, but I remember that anime instead of character was decided to be listed instead was because it would be too wordy? Though it makes a bit sense that now you mentioned about it (though it might be confusing about the character without listing where the character was from).

Always good to see new faces doing VA work, so good luck to them in their respective roles. Based on the PV, I’d say the VAs doing the MC sounded pretty good.

Truth to be told, I sometimes get tired of seeing the same people over and over voicing characters. Yes, they are good, but it's always nice to see others (newcomers and less popular VAs) given a chance.

Pretty good variety of voices. This will be music for ears.

whoa newbie voicing MC o.o

They're not newbies. They are veteran live-action actors.
I'm usually ok with actors, they are different most of the time but not necessarily bad, but sometimes their voice acting in anime outright sucks, hope these are ok.

one of the more promising titles of next season.

A 10 year old voicing a 10 year old huh? That's great. Same principle worked very well in Barakamon. Sounds a lot more natural.

edit: never mind. she's 20. Misread.
>1995 was 20 years ago
I KNOW! Holy crap.

Who does the series name in the brackets? For what reason you put a series name in brackets and why the particular series that it is?

The seiyuu participated in those series and we tend to choose more recent or popular series for reference.

I would say those are more or less RANDOM; just for giggles.

Interesting cast choice, I think that would work well with the tone of the series, especially the two live-action actors. No wonder Satoru sounded so realistic and "normal" in the CM.

He looks like Nine :O
Will watch this.

Dec 3, 2015 12:59 AM by Tengai

I have high hopes for this
HYPE!
