    Seiyuu: Anime Voice Actors

    Hm, in most western countries only fans seem to know the names of voice actors for animated series and movies. Nobody really cares if it's not a celebrity who's name is written allover the movie poster.

    I was told that this differs a little in Japan were Seiyuu are more or less celebrities themselves. And knowing us Anime Otaku here at MH - when a new Anime gets announced, we check out the voice actor list immediately and are happy when a favorite Seiyuu takes part in it

    So what is your favorite Seiyuu and why do you love his/her voice so much?

    Noriaki Sugiyama, Ryōtarō Okiayu, Mamoru Miyano, and Jun Fukuyama for the guys. Noriaki because he is amazing as Sasuke in Naruto, that is all (Oh, he also voiced another arrogant black haired bastard from a prideful clan, Ishida from Bleach).Ryōtarō Okiayu because he voiced Kuchiki Byakuya and he does the whole "I'm speaking as if I'm about to sleep" , I mean, don't you just love it every time he says "Senbonzakura"? Also he's also Tezuka bu-chou, ""Yudan sezu ni ikō !". For Mamoru Miyano, well, he voiced LIGHT Yagami in Death Note, and if that wasn't enough? He also voiced Tamaki in Ouran High School Host club, luckily I watched Death Note before Host Club, therefore my enjoyment was increased as every time Tamaki does/acts/says something stupid (which is like 95% of the time), I couldn't just help picturing in my mind that it was Light which is extremely out of character for him. Finally we have Jun Fukuyama who portrays a character that is as complex and compelling as Light was Lelouche Lamperouge (although perhaps even more complex as Lelouch actually had some emotions such as guilt and actual love for his sister, while Light mostly faked his).

    For the Girls it's Fumiko Orikasa for voicing perhaps the BEST female character ever to be put into an Anime series, Kuchiki Rukia. And Aya Hirano because She told me to right her name down, and you don't question Haruhi Suzumiya, you simply obey.

    One of my favorites is Tomokazu Sugita. I can't imagine Gintoki being as funny in the manga as in the anime because of this guy. He just captures Gintoki's character so damn well.

    Re: Seiyuu: Anime Voice Actors

    Sakura Nogawa Mainly because of her voicework in Seto no Hanayome as Lunar Edomae. The way she switched between insane megalomaniac to cute pop idol constantly was just fantastic.

    Hōchū Ōtsuka Because of his voice work as Jiraiya. He makes his voice fit that character so perfectly and the same is true in most of his other work such as in Ergo Proxy.

    Re: Seiyuu: Anime Voice Actors

    Wehee... I've been crazy about seiyuus lately. I'm even addicted to their Drama CDs. My favourite right now is Sugita Tomokazu. It started with Gintama. And yes, I'm a Gintard. From my addiction of Drama CDs, I've also develope some interest with Ishida Akira, Kamiya Hiroshi, Toriumi Kousuke, Morikawa Toshiyuki, Yusa Koji, Miki Shinichirou, etc, etc, the list goes on and on.

    Re: Seiyuu: Anime Voice Actors

    Kazuya Nakai

    Zoro (one piece)
    Doumeki (xxxholic)
    Mugen (samurai champloo)

    Hard to say, I never really cared about seiyu but I managed to recognize the 3 characters had the same voice. (besides usopp's seiyu which is pretty distinctive but I don't really like)

    I just like his rough voice. smexy.

    Re: Seiyuu: Anime Voice Actors

    I really can't care for the voices themselves, nor am I interested in dating any seiyuu(cough*likesomeIknow*cough!)but I think Kenichi Suzumura is a skilled seiyu. Same for Miyano Mimaoru(or whatever, you know Tmaki's seiyuu from Ouran) and Maaya Sakamato.

    I don't really have a preference for any seiyuu, but if I were to choose, I would definitely choose Romi Paku for the women, and maybe Akira Ishida for the men.
