Well i hoped Ogata Megumi is back to voiceing Haruka but Junko is a good choice either.

Not casting Ogata is such a failure :( I expected it, but still... There is place only for one Haruka Tenoh in my heart. I love what Ogata wrote in one of her last tweets, "Inside me, that girl [Haruka] who only loved Michiru lives unchanged. This was a loooong time ago, but she's a part of me even now. Please allow me to let her out from time to time."

T^T Time to rewatch S and Sailor Stars, NOW.

Sayaka Ohara sounds great, though I just can't imagine her as Michiru.

Ryoma is voicing Uranus? Well, she has the boy-ish voice down.

So Haruka & Michiru are also the undines..

Sounds interesting..

And BTW, will we see Haruka's 2000GT convertible..?

I'm having trouble accepting this a bit, but I think I will say that these are good picks. Ohara and Minagawa are both sex appeal.

I'm not really surprised with lack of Ogata: the only returning seiyuu they bothered to hire was Mitsuishi and the rest is new ones. They could re-cast more actresses, but decided not to for some reason. Sayaka and Junko are nice additions, they will handle it well for sure. I'm more curious about Saturn's voice actor, she seems to be fairly new in the industry.

For the time being I like what I'm shown, but remembering the utter garbage that frist seaon was and nowadays Toei's politics I'm cautious with being hyped.

fucking this
as if crystal wasn't bad enough as it is ;_;
I'm surprised they didn't re cast her

I mean, it's not like she's left the seiyuu industry (even if she's not getting as many roles as she used to but then again she was more popular in the late 90s-early 00s)

IMO this was the best arc of the original series and the one that left the most lasting impression. I don't see how they could do any better and judging by modern Toei production standards they wont. Provided some level of effort people who have never seen the original will like Howard and her character arc a lot though.

Not actually bad tbh, not bad at all for this cast selection. Can't wait thought.

Not bad for the cast choices. Hope to see a PV soon but I'm going to keep expectations low for now.

Mendosa just can't rest in peace, can he? He just have to try and destroy humanity again.

>Cyprine: Umeka Shouji
Always welcomed addition. She really needs more roles.
