Did combine both post, I'm having hard time to read it out LOL. (look up, look down)
Mashiro Moritaka = Fukuyama Jun = Kazuki Muto (Buso Renkin)
Takagi Akito = Miyano Mamoru = Light Yagami (Death Note)!!!! O_O
Azuki Miho = Hanazawa Kana = Mikan Yūki (To Love-Ru)
Miyoshi Kaya = Mizusawa Fumie = Gidget; Linck (Eureka Seven)
Iwase Aiko = Sawashiro Miyuki = Akane Serizawa (Pani Poni Dash!)
Niizuma Eiji = Yoshino Hiroyuki = Allelujah Haptism (Mobile Suit Gundam 00)
Fukuda Shinta = Kase Yasuyuki = Kankurou (Naruto)
Aoki Kou = Hayashi Marika = Adett Kistler (Overman King Gainer)
Nakai Takurou = Itou Kentarou = Abarai Renji (BLEACH)
Hiramaru Kazuya = Furuya Tohru = Yamcha (Dragon Ball)
giving examples of who they voiced is a neat idea, but considering almost no one watched all those shows together makes it kinda moot.
Its probably false seeing as Takagi was voiced by someone else in the vomic.
It would be weird if they cast Hiramaru before, say, all of the editors. They come into the story much earlier and play a much larger role.
You forgot FukuJun's most famous role. Lelouch from Code Geass. Miyano is also famous for voice Setsuna from Gundam 00 and Tamaki from Ouran. These two guys are probably tier 1 for male seiyuu idols.Originally Posted by Kibate
You can always look them up on ANN or Wikipedia, so it's no biggie.
I wouldn't be too surprised if one or two characters are voiced by a different seiyuu, it has happened before (Pandora Hearts comes to mind in recent memories). I think Miyano Mamoru would do a good job, they might as well get a fangirl favourite seiyuu. Hanazawa Kana has one of the cutest and moe-est voice out of all the newbies, I approve of her. Sawashiro Miyuki always sound amazing, so no problem with her. I would love to hear more from Mizusawa Fumie, she's currently playing Erika from Heartcatch Pretty Cure <3.Originally Posted by CrudeCross
I like the mixture of moe moe female idol seiyuu, moe moe male idol seiyuu and some veterans. But it doesn't look like they have any no-namers yet, I would like to see one or two of them.
FukuJun sounded too cute cute for Saiko, since he was practically using his shota voice. Miyano Mamoru would sound too 'gentleman' like for Saiko in my opinion, anyway I'm not very fond of his too-serious voice, he's the guy to voice genki-non-shota characters. I agree with Shinnosuke Tachibana doing a good job, but Miyano has the idol factor (like they said in Bakuman, the industry likes to hire cute seiyuus, this doesn't just apply to female seiyuus ).
They're probably going to keep FukuJun for the sake of fangirls, knowing J.C staff (who practically hires KugiRie for everything). Personally I've been imagining Hiro Shimono for Saiko, but that's just me.
^Oh my...I didn't even notice that! Lelouch and Light always been compared...
Lelouch would probably geass Light, since it's quicker then Light writing Lelouch's name into his death note.
I still have no idea what audience this anime is targetting. This isn't exactly for young children, it has alot of casual fans, but no obessive fans. Also, it's not like long running shounen where merchandises and other stuff would make money. If it had noitamina's time slot, then it would actually make sense (or even KimiToke/Ouran's time slot). Because those are great timeslots for late night anime, especially for the older teenage group. This is airing on NHK educational channel (mainly for children), meaning the manga sales wouldn't really increase much either.
I'm being quite pessimistic. Even if the anime turn out to be good, I can't see it being commerially sucessful. But hey...weirder things have happened before.
Durarara popularity this season REALLY surprised me.
The preview looks great and if this will be the normal quality for the anime,then this'll be an amazing anime.
I found some staffs for Bakuman animation:
Director #1: Kasai Kenichi (Honey and Clover, Major, etc.)
Director #2: Akitaya Noriyuki (Inuyasha, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, etc.)
Screenwriter: Yoshida Reiko (K-On!, D.Gray-man, etc.)
Character Design: Shitaya Tomoyuki (Hatsukoi Limited, Tora Dora!, Kiss×sis, etc.)
Sorry, looks like cast for Bakuman that I've uploaded before is fake one. I found a real information about cast, but it only announced two people.
Mashiro Moritaka (Saiko) = Abe Atsushi
Takagi Akito (Shuujin) = Hino Satoshi
