So I watched the first episode of Peach Girl, and it was cute, and I liked it. BUT I'm having issues with Kairi's voice. Apparently I don't really like how Suzumura Ken'ichi is doing his voice (he does Shin in Gokusen as well... I haven't seen anime Gokusen yet, but I hope he does it better than he does Kairi). I'm a very audio centric person, so voices matter a lot to me.

Which got me thinking, which seiyuu do I like?

♥ Okiayu Ryotaro as Yuu in Marmalade Boy
♥ Seki Tomokazu as Van in Escaflowne
♥ Nakata Jōji as Folken in Escaflowne (If that dude came up to me, and spoke in his Folken voice, I'd totally be like "Take me now!")
♥ Kanna Nobutoshi as Tasuki in Fushigi Yuugi (TASUKI!! I love Tasuki SO MUCH! Tamahome should be my favorite Suzaku Seishi, but he isn't. Tasuki is!)
♥ Miyashita Naoki as Domyoji in Hana Yori Dango
♥ Yamamoto Koji as Rui in Hana Yori Dango
♥ Miyano Mamoru as Zero in Vampire Knight, and Sho in Skip Beat!
♥ Konishi Katsuyuki as Ren in Skip Beat!
♥ Nagata Akira as Otani in Love Com
♥ Inoue Marina as Kyoko in Skip Beat!
♥ Sakamoto Maaya as Hitomi in Escaflowne (Maaya's my favorite female seiyuu of all time. I LOVE her a ton. Yakusoku wa Iranai from Escaflowne is one favorite songs of all time. I have it memorized in BOTH Japanese and English...)
♥ Koyasu Takehito as Aya in Weiß Kreuz, and Hotohori in Fushigi Yuugi (Aya's probably my second favorite anime character of all time, after Kei-kun from Marmalade Boy)

The whole seiyuu thing got me thinking about Weiß Kreuz, how much I loved it, and how I never actually finished it. I should download it again. Then I started watching a bit on youtube, and heard the BEST interpretation of Weiß Kreuz ever;
"It's like Charlie's Angels, except with Bishonen!"

IT IS!!

Speaking randomly of Bishonen, anyone else remember Pocket Bishonen? Apparently the site is back up, but the old content is gone. I remember I had the original submissions for Miwa Satoshi (Marmalade Boy), and Dryden Fassa (Escaflowne). I remember being super upset that someone else had submitted Kei-kun (Marmalade Boy) first. I love Kei-kun. I also had submitted a bunch of trainer badges. In fact, I think I had a large amount of trainer badges. I remember I was on fairly good terms with the webmistress too...

I also totally just rewatched the Boku wa Imoto Ni Koi O Suru OVA again... It's really kinda disturbing how much I love that damn story

And then I rewatched a bit of the HYD anime, and I had totally forgotten about the kinda-lesbian school nurse who was friends with Tsubaki! God, that anime was great...

Random: Basmati rice is my favorite, but it's really not the best thing to use when making onigiri... Oh! That reminds me! I saw a bag of Basmati rice at the grocery store the other day, and it said "INDIAN RICE" on it, yet it was decorated with Chinese characters...

I apologize ahead of time for the long comment.. But it's your fault for talking about seiyuu!!

-----

You know, Suzumura Ken'ichi is in a lot of stuff, but I never really like his voice. It's not BAD but there's something about it I don't like. (Roles I have in mind: Rakushun in Twelve Kingdoms, Lavi in D-Gray.man, and Kilik in Soul Eater)

Okiaryu Ryoutarou = LOVE. He's my #1 seiyuu 4EVA. I may fangirl others, but he's always my favorite. Apparently he has a cute butt. (I don't remember who said so, but it was a male seiyuu)

Canna Nobutoshi = also love. He's Nowaki in Junjou Romantica (boys love series) so his voice makes me horny. (Well, Okiayu's does too..)

Miyano Mamoru = Seriously, you should make a point to watch anything Mamoru is in. He is just AMAZING. (He's in the Antique anime btw). He's great in Soul Eater, but IMO his best role was in Death Note. Death Note has a great story, but Mamoru's voice is what "makes" the anime, hands down. (I recently reread the Death Note manga so I'm all obsessed with it right now..)

Sakamoto Maaya = One of those awesome veteran seiyuu who everyone loves, and who's in a lot of stuff and is always great. I have a ton of her music if you ever want any (I think I have her full discography..)

Koyasu Takehito = I didn't used to like him, when all his roles were the bishounen type. But lately I've opened my heart to him and now he's one of my favorites. I read his blog..

I'm surprised you didn't list Okamura Akemi! (Risa in LoveCom) I know her from One Piece, but I was really impressed with her in LoveCom even though she's not from Kansai.


Random seiyuu I like..

Kamiya Hiroshi - Can sound quiet and gentle, or freak out. Is pretty cute, but his face looks like plastic..

Sakurai Takahiro - Cute, and wears glasses! He plays a lot of "cool" guys

Yamaguchi Kappei - *I* think he's adorable.. Plays everything from dorky lameass characters (Usopp/One Piece), to genius detectives (L/Death Note), to bishounen (..various boys love drama CDs)

Hirata Hiroaki - Middle aged but somehow I find him adorable. He's the Japanese voice of Johnny Depp.

Nakai Kazuya - Great "evil" sounding voice. Even when he plays a good guy, he sounds evil, which is awesome.

Kishou Daisuke - I actually like him better as a radio personality than as a seiyuu. He's really hilarious to listen to.


If you wanted to watch a random anime that has nothing to do with romance, but is very lovely and amazing, I highly recommend Natsume Yuujinchou. There are two seasons, 12 episodes each, and each episode is only 24 minutes so it'd be a quick watch. (Season 2 is currently airing) It's about a boy who can see spirits, and he resolves their problems. But it's always very (bitter)sweet and I cry during almost every episode..



I remember Pocket Bishounen!! I remember I submitted some people, but I don't remember who.. (seems like it was during my visual kei phase(*) so it was probably visual kei people)

(*)I totally spelled that "fase" then "faze" and it took me a second to figure out what was wrong..



Mmm, basmati rice is so good! I like jasmine rice as well.

I KNEW you'd like this entry, because I know you like seiyuu... in fact, most of what I know about them I know from you. Like the random fact that the same guy who did Tamahome also did Michael from Marmalade Boy...

Suzumura Ken'ichi in Peach Girl isn't bad, per se, but it's not my style. Too girly. I like the deeper voices. Just not my style. Which is surprising, since I liked Otani's voice in Love Com a ton.

Okiayu Ryotaro's voice is nice. I think I'd like him better if I liked Yuu better.

Miyano Mamoru is kinda hot too, which makes me like him better. Plus, OMG Zero! That character is SO HOT. I even like his random neck tattoo! I keep meaning to read/watch Death Note, but haven't gotten around to it for obvious reasons involving lots of dramas.

I know you gave me several of her songs from Escaflowne. I like her a lot. Hitomi was her first voice, right? Surprising, since she did such a good job!

I think I will forever like Koyasu Takehito because of Aya. I REALLY love Aya. Hehehe! You read his blog! I love Asians and their blogs! I "read" my favorite tw-actresses blog.

I didn't list her because, for the most part, I don't really pay attention to female seiyuu. The only reason I listed Inoue Marina was because I had just listened to some skip beat, and was like, what the hell, her voice is cute! Maaya impressed me because I LOOOVED the theme song for Escaflowne. But actually, I just listened to Love Com a bit more, and I DO really like her voice, it's not all scarily high pitched like a lot of them are. But you know, I can't tell the difference between "normal" japanese and the kansai dialect, so that wouldn't really impress me.

Oh cool! I don't know any of them, but interesting! I like range in voices, so it's cool when they can portray lots of stuff.

Um, Japanese voice of Johnny Depp?! How FREAKING AWESOME!

Oh! I'll put that on my list... My really long list... I need to update my media list with anime and manga. I should do that soon.

Yay!! I LOOOVED Pocket Bishonen!! You remember how you had to snwer a quiz right to "capture" them?! Well they still have that, and I was able to capture Folken from Escaflowne! Go me! I kinda want to submit a ton of people now...

That happens to me a lot. I'm like "why is the spell checker saying I'm spelling this wrong?!"...

I haven't had jasmine rice maybe. Does it taste jasmine-y? Because I hate jasmine tea... Oh, I've been drinking a shitload of Oolong tea recently. Trying to Taiwanese-ify or something. I love how I drink tea. I POUR sugar into it. Literally pour, I don't even bother to measure with spoons. I'm sure Asians would look at me as if I were crazy.
