Am I the only one who thinks Kimura Ryohei sounds good as Wei Wuxian? He’s the voice actor for the bright handsome basketball player, Kise Ryouta from Kuroko no Basuke and Demon Lord, Shun Shimotsuki in Tsukiuta. Combine those two characters and we have Wei Wuxian lol

Suzuki Tatsuhisa as WWX in the japanese dubbed audio drama is good as well. He sounds manly similar to WWX Chinese audio drama while the anime sounds more playful that’s why Ryohei suits it.

Also, I’m glad they didn’t change the names like what they did to the audio drama. Their pronounciation sounds weird tho but I can manage. xD

Hello~ This post is for the 2nd week of the ongoing seiyuu challenge (or should I say Seiyuu appreciation?)

click here for week 1

Due to the nature of questions, there might be a bunch of minor spoilers here (in GIF or video form) for various anime (like Robotics;Notes, Nanbaka, Assassination Classroom, Danshi Koukouse no Nichijou, Psycho-pass 3, Kuroko no Basuke, Tada-kun wa Koi Wo Shinai, etc).  If you absolutely hate spoilers, you may want to skip or proceed with caution.

If you don’t particularly care about minor spoilers and have nothing better to do, you are most welcome to take a plunge in this long post filled with my opinions and fangirling.    

8. Seiyuu with most impressive range (character types)

Fukuyama Jun

I was debating whether I should swap my answers for number 7 and 8.  Ishida Akira and Fukuyama Jun both have impressive ranges in terms of pitch and character types.  I just decided to go with my original answers.

You can tell that he is an experienced voice actor.^^  He has a variety of characters that’ll make you go: “Wait, that was HIM?”  "How can these two characters have the same voice actor?!“

I remember laughing so hard when I learned that Kazuma’s(Noragami) seiyuu is the same as Lelouch’s(Code Geass)…and then I saw Assassination Classroom.

9. Seiyuu with best character singing voice

Toyonaga Toshiyuki

Toyonaga Toshiyuki already has a nice singing voice.  It is even more amazing that he can sing in different voices.  

It’s no surprise if a seiyuu can sing well.  Sometimes, though, in character songs, I tend to hear the seiyuu rather than the character.  [Hmm…I can’t find the right words to explain this…It is like…Say for example I listened to Seiyuu A’s character songs from various anime, it would sound like it came from the same person–which is understandable, since it is much harder to voice act while singing (Don’t get me wrong please, I’m not trying to criticizes other seiyuus.  I’m just trying to show better what I admire about Toyonaga-san.  I’m also no authority on voice acting/singing.)]

What makes Toyonaga Toshiyuki’s singing special is that even when singing, his characters sound different from each other.  Other seiyuus are able to do this too, but I think that Toyonaga Toshiyuki’s range is much wider.  

Note: I do have a video compilation of Toyonaga Toshiyuki’s character songs, but it might take me a while to post it.  Stay tuned~

In the meantime, here is a nice compilation I found on Youtube:

Can we admire how he can change his tone & voice quality and still sound good?  

  

10. Seiyuu with best inside voice

I couldn’t think of the right word then, but what I meant was inner monologue.

Sugita Tomokazu

Need I explain this?  

THIS IS just one of the reasons  WHY:

This is just a fraction of his voice acting prowess.  But I just love the contrast between the character’s inside voice and speaking voice.


11. Seiyuu with best drama/ crying

Nakamura Yuuchi

When his character cries, you’ll want to cry to.  Personally, I don’t react much when watching anime (I usually watch with someone else).  But Nakamura Yuuchi’s powers are too strong. And it’s not even the strong emotional outbursts/bawling yet.  

image

Maybe the reason why it’s so effective is because he usually gets casted as a tough character.  So when his character cries, you know that it’s really serious.

How can he express so much sadness with minimal crying noises?

12. Seiyuu with best laugh

I know some seiyuu are known for their unique, contagious laughter (like Shimono Hiro).  I decided to focus on voice acting laughter^^

I never gave much thought to how much information about a character’s personality is communicated just by the way he laughs.  Seiyuus are amazing. 

Kakihara Tetsuya

His character laughs are just lighthearted, pleasant to listen to AND contagious. even when it’s supposed to be annoying

He also does great creepy evil laughs.

Special mention: Nakamura Yuuchi

His laughs sound different for each character, and they never sound awkward.

13. Seiyuu with best scream

Kimura Ryohei

Similar to Okamoto Nobuhiko, Kimura Ryohei’s screams sound controlled and real.  Plus, he also delivers the necessary emotions.

Can we please appreciate how Kimura Ryohei delivered this scream of shock and anguish? (in Robotics;Notes)

image

I like how “carefully measured” his screams/shouts/miscellaneous noises sound.  No matter how loud/emotional, it doesn’t hurt my eardrums.  He is so good in controlling the intensity of his voice.

image

Originally posted by spellweavr

PS. His voice sounds really good when you listen through headphones.


Special mention: Uemura Yuuto

Impressive performance as Yuliy Jirov, Jyugo, and Atsushi Nakajima.  (He is really good with calm characters that are part beast :P)

14. Seiyuu with best English

Miyano Mamoru

It is expected that seiyuus who spent years outside Japan would have much better English pronunciation (seiyuus like Ayumu Murase, Hino Satoshi, Wataru Komada etc).  But I chose Miyano Mamoru for biased other reasons.

For a non-native English speaker, Mamo-chan’s English is pretty good.  It’s not perfect, but it does sound that much effort was put behind it.  

Have you heard him speak English as Asano Gakushu (in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, the sports festival episode)?  That really got my attention.

Or as Rin Matsuoka in Free! Eternal Summer? 

Please appreciate his clear pronunciations and proper pauses.

And he also knows enough English that he can intentionally sound bad at it.

Hello! My extra long post has somehow made it to your feed.  

This is week one of the 30-day seiyuu challenge.

Here is the link to the one I compiled/made-up: https://miniaturestitches.tumblr.com/post/633578545834311680/soive-seen-some-30-day-seiyuu-challenges


I’ll try to keep this short and simple (but I might end up fangirling)
>>*these are just my personal thoughts and opinions-duh…<<

1. First character voice that impressed you.

Kamiya Hiroshi

He is one of the first seiyuu I knew about.  (The very first anime that I watched in Japanese dub was Durarara!!)  Orihara Izaya’s crazy laugh was really impressive.

2. Voice that is easiest to recognize

Tsuda Kenjiro

This man’s voice is so easy to recognize.  Probably because of how deep and guttural(?) his voice is…or maybe just because he gets typecasted a lot?    I can easily tell it’s his voice from just a phrase.

The way he speaks usually sounds like his teeth are gritted.

Special mention: Suwabe Junichi

His voice also has a unique, husky quality.  But unlike Tsuda Kenjiro, I tend to have small doubts if it’s really him (especially when he is voicing younger roles.)

3. Voice that is hardest to recognize

Terashima Takuma

Okay, so this guy has a tendency to disappear behind his roles.  And I mean that in a good way.  He is able to voice each character uniquely that you forget that there is a voice actor lending his voice to them–I mean all good voice actors are like this…but even the greatest ones have habits or something unique that makes them recognizable.  So far, I still haven’t figured out how to identify his voice.

4. Seiyuu with the most number of favorite roles

This is probably one of the hardest for me to respond to.  (I just like a lot of characters) I had to make a list and limit only one favorite character per anime.

Well…out of 50+ voice actors, first place goes to Miyano Mamoru, with 16 favorite characters.  Not really surprised about that.  He is casted in most of the earlier anime I had watched.  To name a few: Kida Masaomi (Durarara!!!), Suoh Tamaki (Ouran High School Host Club), Yogi (Karneval), Death the Kid (Soul Eater), etc.  I guess this is why he’s one of the first to make it in my “Top 5 male seiyuus”. I love his more recent roles too!

Originally posted by beespeachyanime

A close second is Kimura Ryohei with 15 favorite characters. (I actually thought he would take first place) He’s also in my “Top 5”, but it’s the opposite case for him though. I have a suspicion that these characters became my favorite because it is Kimura Ryohei who voiced them.

5. Seiyuu with the best stoic characters

Ono Daisuke

He just excels at these characters… Heiwajima Shizuo (Durarara!!), Killer T Cell (Hataraku Saibou), Kujo Jotaro (JoJo), Hirato (Karneval), Midorima Shintarto (Kuroko no Basuke), Sebastian Michealis (Kuroshitsuji),etc.

Okay maybe not really stoic, but more of the cool and quiet types…the ones that we’d love to see get embarrassed/annoyed.

image

Originally posted by ehcosfera

Special mention: Ishikawa Kaito

He doesn’t have much roles as OnoD yet, but I was really impressed with his work in Zankyou no Terror, Sakurada Reset, and Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari,

6. Seiyuu with the best noisy characters

Okamoto Nobuhiko

I don’t think this needs much explanation.

I feel scared for his vocal chords.

What I like about his screams and shouts is that it sounds “controlled” but at the same time “real”
I mean anyone can scream their heads off, but not anyone can sound good while doing it.  
I’ve heard him  do angry noisy, passionate noisy, happy noisy, excited noisy, and crazy noisy!


7. Seiyuu with the most impressive range (pitch)

This kind of overlaps with the next item(character types), but anyway…


Ishida Akira
He is so good that it’s so scary.  I’ve heard a lot of voice actors with a “normal/adult voice” and a “younger voice”.  But Ishida Akira’s range is way wider: from a young child to an elderly person–BOTH MALE AND FEMALE VOICES.  His voice may not be as deep as some voice actors.  But considering also his older age it is impressive that he still voices teenagers.


Special Mention: Shimazaki Nobunaga
His voice acting range probably isn’t as wide as Ishida Akira, but his voice has gone way higher than other male voices I have heard.

CQL Japanese Blu-ray Bonus (Box 1)

“Lan-er gongzi” just became “Lan-shi ni no waka-sama” xD

Also, it’s worth to note that the lines they’re saying in the bonus Japanese dub is a bit different with the Japanese subtitles on the main episodes, especially in terms of how they’re addressing each other.

I’ve only watched a few episodes (because still waiting for Box 3 to come) so I don’t remember much.

But I do recall Wei Wuxian calling Wen Qing “Wen-dono” xD

❤️Day 8 and 9: It’s suppose to be “The seiyuu you recognize the easiest and the hardest” but since I don’t know what to write… I change it for “The seiyuus you want to know more about and/or see in more things”.😋

-My three choices: -Wataru Komada

-Shou Karino

-Kimura Ryohei

By the way, if you have any information about those three, share! I’m INTERESTED!😋
