Well I don't really have any problems with Ayane Sakura, but I felt that Hayami would have been better because whenever I read the manga, for some reason her voice would always pop up in my head when I would read Uraraka's lines.

Just the voice, Not the face right?
Still Ayane Sakura was more fit for the role.
Because she had a damn wide voice range.

Kind of wanted Marina Inoue for Deku, but I guess she also fits Momo too, so it can work. Fumikage's choice is also perfect.

Hayami Saori's voice doesn't really fit that well for Uraraka imo. She's a bit quirky but not quirky like Shinoa from Seraph. Ayane Sakura did a great job with her based on the PV.

OT: Great cast, once again, along with the previously announced ones.

Well, that's your opinion and I respect that. I've been surprised lots of times with the cast choices before and most of them turned out to be good in the end, so I would expect whoever who picked the casts to know what they're doing. Now that I've heard Ayane Sakura voicing Uraraka in the PV, I'm really glad they picked her. Maybe Hayami Saori can pull it off too but I'm happy with the current cast now. :)

And I'm waiting for Todoroki as well…( a deeper voice would be great, someone like Ishikawa Kaito, but they already used him for Iida…oh well)


It's going to be Matsuoka for Todoroki, I can already see it coming.

I have a feeling it's gonna be some rising seiyuu with little roles like Mikazuki from Gundam IBO, Ushio from Ushio to Tora or someone along those lines.

Well I guess I'm fine with these guys.

I'm just still stuck on why they didn't cast Saori Hayami as Uraraka. Her voice is perfect for that role.

Oh wow, Marina Inoue was literally my one and only pick for Momo, and she's actually playing her.
Perfect.

I'm alright with these seiyuu.
And I'm waiting for Todoroki as well...( a deeper voice would be great, someone like Ishikawa Kaito, but they already used him for Iida...oh well)

it get's many color pages and is always one of the first manga in the WSJ (-> great rating).
if you want some personal opinions, here's mine:
it's currently my nr3 after one piece and boku dake ga inai machi. i'm enjoying each chapter more than the last couple hundred chapters of naruto (actually even more than most of the good chapters)

looking forward to see what kind of characters they will be doing, like both VA's hope theyll do a decent job

Looking forward to Yoshimasa Hosoya's role in this especially since I think he does a good job with Kaito's character.
