Seiyuu Comparisons - Summer 2010 (#7)

by 19:57
After some Ume rain showers, Japan is about to enter it's hottest period, with kiddies on their summer break, bikini-clad ladies jumping around on sandy beaches, some occasional nosebleeds and a rather high humidity to sweat and work out that body.

Ahhh.... how I love Summmer!
Despite the wonderful sunny weather, I'm stuck with a pile of assignments which I've been delaying and procrastinating to do since June. At this rate, phone usages this month will be rather high, as I call up my teammates to work on 5 different projects. Ouch....

But who cares?!
Lets move onto more important issues...

We're already half way through this solstice, but our summer lineup has just begun! And quite a few promising titles are living up to their expectations.

As of now, I'm following 18 series + 10 OVAs, including a few series which have not ended from last spring. Of course, this has led to a bad case of eye-bags, sleep deprivation and the usual symptoms which are to follow. And the FIFA World Cup ain't helping either...

Not that I'm interested in football, but it does come once every 4 years (and the fact I wanna see the fall of Spain and 'Paul the Octopus' get thrown into the shark tank).

But I do have my source of motivation to keep on watching, which comes from Haruka!

I did say I was gonna touch on a few... but the number of awesome titles and sequels got the better of me. And doesn't it always? Haha.
Hope your summer has more jiggling bikinis, sandy beaches and a lot wetter than mine. xD

(FYI: In case you haven't noticed by now, all names are arranged with "last + first" sequence. 
No, I don't follow western naming. It sounds weird...
Yes, this is how you remember and properly call them in Japan)

Seiyuu Comparisons

[Itou Shizuka]
Ookami Ryouko                                        Katsura Hinagiku
Suprisingly, Itou-san was chosen for a yankeedere character. Not that I'm complaining, but it's a nice change of pace from girlish-voiced characters. Nyaa~!

[Kanae Itou]
Akai Ringo                                              Serizawa Fumino
In case some of you have noticed, she looks like "Little Red Riding Hood"
And in case some of you have NOT noticed, the characters are similar to the story; 
a wolf, a red hooded girl and a hunter

[Miyu Irino]
Marino Ryoushi                                           Saji Crossroad
As always, he's been chosen for a "no-balls" character. Well, Saji did find a pair at the ending arc...

[Mizuki Nana]
Alois Tracy                                                        Ogata Rina
Oooo. Quite a bad ass casting for Mizuki-san. Vicious as ever, but I still love her. xD

[Sakurai Takahiro]
Claude Faustus                                              Kururugi Suzaku
Spinzaku is back! How long has it been since I last used this meme? Haha
We're gonna be using more of it when the new Code Geass series comes out this 2010

[Sakamoto Maaya]
Ciel Phantomhive                                                  Nino
Botchan! You're back! After suffering a painful torture to his soul, only to be eaten by this butler, he still returns! 
[Daisuke Ono]
Sebastian Michaelis                                           Heiwajima Shizuo
Daisuke-san has been riding a string of awesome titles for the past few seasons. Good for him!

[Hirano Aya]
Hannah Anafeloz                                              Lucy Heartfilia
Awww. Someone's eye got gouged out. Lol. Not a Hirano hater, but I follow where the trend takes me =P

[Itou Shizuka]
Morishima Haruka                                              Katsura Hinagiku
*dies again*
I had the chance to see my friend play "Amagami" on PS2. And it's shit addictive...
I now fully understand the power behind galges. It's like a magnet, drawing you in deeper and deeper into the void of no return....

[Nazuka Kaori]
Ayatsuji Tsukasa                                                   Lynette Bishop
She's been quite for the past few months, then lands 2 main roles this summer. Nice one, Nunnally! 

[Satou Rina]
Tanamachi Kaoru                                             Misaka Mikoto
Recognized her voice immediately.
Our favourite electromaster has gone tomboyish....again. Lol. 

[Asumi Kana]
Tachibana Miya                                          Taneshima Popura  
Yes, Popura. You've gotten another short-character role. 
Is it me, or does she always end up with chibi characters? (Yuno, Popura, Miya)

[Maeno Tomoaki]
Tachibana Junichi                                              Kanejou Keiichi
I hate that smile. I hate both of their stupid-smug smiles
I hope Haruka dumps you... =P

[Akesaka Satomi]
Marui Futaba                                               Chrome Dokuro
The art is a little disturbing and off at times, but still enjoyable. Loved the "war" part in epi 1. xD

[Tomatsu Haruka]
Marui Hitoba                                                         Teruya Eiko
Another creepy-and-unexpected-role-Tomatsu-would-have-gotten character. 
I swear, this sister would make me piss my pants if I didn't empty if before. 

[Takagaki Ayahi]
Marui Mitsuba                                            Satsukitane Mikako
A sadistic role for Takagaki-san. But them, I'm "M", so all's cool.
Btw, Sora no Otoshimono S2 is green-lit. I'm guessing winter or spring 2011?

[Shimono Hiro]
Yabe Satoshi                                                Tajima Yuuichirou
Totally recognizable voice. Wished Ookiku Furikabutte 2 had more episodes, but S3 is a sure-go!
And yea, Baka to Test S2 is confirmed 2011. =)

[Suwabe Junichi]
Komuro Takashi                                                        Archer
Bad-ass Archer takes on another heroic role.
Btw, Unlimited Blade Works movie will be released coming September. YES!

[Inoue Marina]
Miyamoto Rei                                                      Senou Natsuru
Another "boing" character. Love her acting, as the drama unfolds in an apocalyptic world.
Please  Satou Daisuke, don't kill off anymore characters!!! x(

[Miyano Mamoru]
Hisashi Igou                                                         Kida Masaomi
Poor bastard. Gets bitten, runs for his life, fights against the undead, only to turn in to one of them and looses his girlfriend, all in 1 episode. 
Harsh, dude....harsh.
