The favorite seiyuu (Japanese anime voice actors) thread
« on: July 09, 2013, 08:28:00 PM »
Since we're all anime fans here, I'm sure we all have our favorite seiyuu.  Who are some of yours? 

Megumi Hayashibara and Aya Hirano are obviously awesome, given how prolific they are and the sheer variety of roles they play.  But I've always been an Aya Hisakawa fan.  That may be because Devil Hunter Yohko was the first anime that *really* got me into anime and Hisakawa voiced Yohko.

I'm more familiar with English Voice Actors, but I can think of two Japanese VAs who managed to really impress me:  Shigeru Chiba (as Buggy from One Piece, and as Vanilla Vartla from Votoms) and Kazuya Nakai (as Zoro in One Piece, and as Witz from Gundam X). Both of these guys do a hell of a job to make their characters memorable from their Voices alone.
