Right now I'm in love with Atsushi Kousaka's voice!
He voiced Prussia and Estonia in Hetalia... Even though as Prussia, his voice can be described as loud and annoying (because Prussia is loud and annoying) but somehow I really love it!
There's also Sasanuma Akita who voiced Austria.. and I can't stop listening to his aristocratic voice saying "obaka-san!"
I'm sorry for the late reply mikkih and Ju-da-su!
Better late than never?
Acting schools sometimes have classes on how to speak a different accent/dialect. I wonder if seiyuu schools have something similar as well.
I'm glad toQuote:
hearread that the conflicts he has had didn't affect his popularity. He's still one of the prolific seiyuus in the industry so it's good that he's still just as successful.
Some fans can be vicious and cruel though. There was backlash when Miyano Mamoru announced his marriage, but it didn't seem to affect him professionally.
There's a saying that Asians don't raisin after all. :PQuote:
I’m a huge fan of the OST of Kuroko no Basket and I have been patiently waiting for it to come out. I did a bit of surfing on youtube and sadly I didn’t find the OST there yet. However, what I did find was the character songs. My favorite character song so far is one featured by Kise’s seiyuu. Here’s the song:
Because I like the song so much, I got interested in Kise’s seiyuu so I did a bit of research and I was surprised and very glad to find out that Kise’s seiyuu in Kuroko no Basket is the same seiyuu of Kaoru in Sakamichi no Apollon. That sealed the deal for me and turned me into a fan of Ryouhei Kimura. So I’m officially adding him to my list of favorite seiyuu.
Here's a list of my favourite
- Yamaguchi Kappei: His voice is iconic so you can tell he's playing a character by just a listen. I mainly know him as Inuyasha and Shinichi so I'd like to see him in recent roles as well!
- Takayama Minami: Her shonen voice is my favorite among all the other female seiyuus who acts as a young boy. She also has a lower-pitched tone as Anita from D. Gray-man, but it wasn't obvious that it was the same voice actress as Conan- at least to my ears.
- Inoue Kazuhiko: He's everywhere! Just like Kamiya Hiroshi, I usually find out he's in an anime I'm watching when I least expect him.
- Narita Ken: The gap between his natural voice and his bishounen voice is rather startling (in a good way). I was looking through his Wikipedia page, and it's a pity that he doesn't have more roles as a central character.
My other favourites are Morikawa Toshiyuki and Minaguchi Yuko, but I've already mentioned them a few pages back.

best male for me :Mamoru Miyano ( ouran,DN,Soul Eater,Uta no prince,Steins Gate)
Best female:Marina Inoue(Mogami Kyoko ..i just love that girl)
And yes! He does well voicing detectives.
OMG! He's a cat??????Quote:
I don't know about you, but he seems to voice a lot of light-haired characters.
Bakuman S3 and Code:Breaker finally made me really interested in Nobu (Okamoto Nobuhiko). Watching those two anime right after one another with full awareness of the cast really is killing me with how surreal it is. One is that crazy Niizuma, who can randomly go excited and shouting out sound effect words of the manga...and another is the cold-blooded Ogami who is always cool and calm, and can kill off evil doers as though they're just roaches and flies. At first, with Rin (in Ao no Exorcist) and Niizuma, his contrast wasn't even near to this, but now...since Ogami is basically a whole different extreme, his voices really blew my mind up. It's just so surreal, way too surreal! LOL
Yep, a butaneko.
Really? I haven't checked the other characters he voiced..

I've loved him since he voiced Usui in Kaichou wa Maid-sama..
I didn't thought he could voice various types of character so when I knew he voiced Rin who's rather childish, I was surprised. Though as Ogami, he sounds similar to Usui, only that Usui speaks lazily while Ogami speaks coolly.
That's pretty cute actually! It's funny because he's in his fifties yet he's voicing a cat.
Gamma (KHR), November 11 (Darker than Black) and Kakashi all have light hair. Although now that I remember his role as Shiratori (Detective Conan), my observation may not be the case.
I gave a listen to Kamiya Hiroshi's debut album (Harezora) a few days ago- I quite like it! It's a collection of catchy songs that are perfect to start off the day in the morning; the fact that he names all of his (mini)-album(s) with "hare", which means sunny, is very appropriate. IIRC he wasn't too confident about singing in one SZS interview I read (or not) so I'm glad he's still active in his music career by releasing a mini-album in April.
In regards to the anime he's in right now, he's simultaneously Trafalgar Law and Penguin who are on two very opposites side of the character spectrum.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that Harenohi is good too!
She has done a great job as Nanami in Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. She has been absolutely amazing! She has expressed all of Nanami’s emotions incredibly well.
I know that not everybody likes her voice, but I actually like it. I especially like her voice when she sings; her voice is so sweet and heartfelt.
She has only worked in two anime series so far but I think she has a lot of potential and a bright future ahead of her, she is an awesome seiyuu and I hope to see her being part of other projects in the future.
Joji Nakata-Man what a voice....the deepest and darkest, and definitely one of a kind. He voiced Alucard in Hellsing Ultimate, Kirei Kotomine in Fate/Zero, Amshel in Blood+, the Count of Monte Cristo in Gankutsuou, and much more! He can be more playful and light hearted like he did with Bando from Elfen Lied.
