He's like the biggest voice actor in history (anime or non anime)

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

Japanese-
Rika Fukami- her Sailor Venus voice is just TOO CUTE.
Mitsuishi Kotono- she surprises me with how well she can pull of silly AND serious.
Aya Hisakawa- She's got a lovely voice.
Rei Nakagawa- Keiko has a GREAT voice. Seriously.

Okay, so I admit it, besides Utena and Sailor Moon, I haven't seen any other anime in its original form :/

English-
Crispin Freeman- if he asked me to get him a soda, I would. With pleasure.
Eric Stuart- mostly because he's so annoyingly mundane and overused.

from Pandora:

are you referring to Eric's vocal abilities, or wh


I like his Gourry (Slayers series) (Setou) Kaiba (Yugioh) and Kojiro (pokemon) . I don't think he's overused, especially now, though  I tend to watch more CN than Fox/4kids (where Stuart is a major player) these days. IMO I think someone like Johnny Bosch would be considered overused (industrywise..........He's the lead in 2 Adult Swim shows)

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

I been watching SKU in the English dub with the subtitles just to see the difference and hear it too and I heard a lot of familier voices,

Utena- Rachael Lillis - (I keep having Pokemon flashbacks when I hear her as she plays Jessie and Misty)

Touga- Crispin Freeman - (I know I heard his voice on shows like Intial D and so on but I remember him as Hideki from Chobits and Taylor from Irresponsible Captain Taylor)

Shiori- Lisa Ortiz - (She could have beaten Utena in the Black Rose Duel if only  she used the Dragon Slave emot-tongue (She was the voice of Lina Inverse in case you didn't know))

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

What? No Megumi Hayashibara? She's in pretty much everything. She's like the Kevin Bacon of Japanese voice acting, only she's actually talented.

She was Rei to begin with anyway... and I totally forgot about Megumi Hayashibara!   Maybe it's because one just assumes she's in everything anymore. emot-wink  She was also Faye in Cowboy Bebop, among her hundreds of roles.

Japanes
Mitsuishi Kotono. :Her Juri voice is the most awesome thing in the entire universe of Utena etc-love , funny enough I don't like her Usagi because sounds too squeaky to me...
Takehito Koyasu: sexaaaayyyy etc-wankgirletc-wankgirletc-wankgirl I love his voice, I love that his voice is in the animes I most love etc-love Hellsing, Utena, Angel Sanctuary etc-love
Jouji Nakata: Alucard would be as sexy if he went missing etc-love He has an older man sexy voice and can sound elegant etc-wankgirl... or demented school-chef



Mexican actors/actresses
Rossy Aguirre: She is everywhere!!!! Ranma, Sailor Moon, Power Puff Girls you name it.
Araceli de Leon (RIP): This woman was a great voice actress with a very young voice as her anime roles were acted in her eldery age. She died at her  sixties/seventies(?) not because of old age but a car accident, Her Makoto(Sailor Moon) and Shampoo will always be remember as the best.

Sergio Bonilla: His voice is half the reason Trunks is sexay etc-wankgirl
Gerardo Reyero: His voice is sexy etc-love and even makes sound Freezer (Dragonball) and Devimon(digimon) sexy which amuses me and disturbs me at the same time emot-gonk

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

I don't really look out for particular voice actors, and I don't know any English voice actors.

However, my favorite male actor by far is Tomokazu Sugita.  His cynical Kyon in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is perfect. In a language that is far less entrenched in sarcasm than English, he does an excellent job of portraying the everyman caught up in a mess beyond his control.

My favorite female is, of course, Tomoko Kawakami. I am constantly amazed at her delivery of certain lines in Utena.  Aya Hirano also gets respect for an amazing vocal range.

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

Ive noticed like, everyones list includes Takehito Koyasu.

hes played in EVERYTHING! seriously. he is my favorite japanese voice actor HANDS DOWN no competition. he also has a gorgeous singing voice if you have ever heard him sing songs for Fushigi Yuugi, Weiss Kreuz, Initial D and even his own solo stuffs! (i used to own his CD when he went by the name "Zazel") i melt for house of love! (greeeeat song!!)

and likewise in english i adore Crispin Freeman. i met him at Anime Boston the second year they had it. he was WONDERFUL! i was too intimidated to take a pic with him, until he kinda grabbed me up and was like "awww, come on!" and i was happy as a clam! too bad that picture and his siggy are gone... ;_;

Re: Favorite Japanese VA's/Favorite American anime VA's

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Nakata Jouji. His voice is utter raw sex. He was Alucard from Hellsing and, most importantly, Folken from Escaflowne.
