3. Anakin Skywalker (Daisuke Namikawa) ...He's popular on the anime side of things too, voicing Italy in Hetalia, Hisoka in Hunter x Hunter...


Yet another good reason to keep Anakin away from the younglings.

Next week's poll doesn't have Broken Blade as an option. But that would be my answer.

No Loki (Hirakawa Daisuke) oh man? His voice as Loki was epic. Sometime I think the list needs a honorable mention.

And I couldn't hear anything on Nana's link, and when Harry speaks in his clip? A bunch of talking, couldn't figure out which one is Harry.

3. Anakin Skywalker (Daisuke Namikawa) Daisuke managed to land voice over roles for both Frodo in Lord of the Rings and Hayden Christensen in Star Wars, both successfully franchises in Japan.

Speaking of Anakin, let's not forget the lovely Maaya Sakamoto, the voice actress for Padmé Amidala... and every other Natalie Portman's roles.

As for my most anticipated anime this season... still unable to decide between Mushi-Shi, The Coffin Princess, and M3.

I am not that excited about the Spring 2014 lineup, but I voted for Irregular at Magic High School because it seems to me like the anime with the most quality staff and has prominent seiyuu.

Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior and Knights of Sidonia could also be series that I might enjoy.

Eh, somehow his "This is Sparta!" doesn't have the same ring to it. Razz

Having no Lady Jewelpet on the poll makes me sad. Neutral

Did Harry even have any lines in the linked clip? If so, I missed them. Here's a clip where he can be heard speaking, although it's surprisingly difficult to find one where it's not mostly other people. Very Happy (I didn't look all that hard though)

I don't know who was doing the Joker in that clip but I think he made the character that much more demented. Smile

I'd love to hunt down the Japanese dub of Hunger Games. The seiyuu they got are too good a team not to see how that turned out.

HOLY COW FUJIWARA KEIJI PLAYED THE JOKER HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD ABOUT THIS SOONER?!?!?! That is some perfect casting right there (though, like all dubs, it still feels weird to me to watch). That also explains why he's so awesome as the Joker-expy Jake in Tiger & Bunny.

(Rokurou Naya's a good stand-in for Gary Oldman, too, that's a good voice match.)

Stuff like this always amuses me when I find out about it. It's a nice perk sometimes when checking out seiyuu on this very site no less.

I think my own two personal discoveries were these.

1) That Short Round (Indiana Jones) has been portrayed by both Masako Nozawa (Son Goku & etc. in DBZ, Guilmon in Digimon Tamers) and Mayumi Tanaka (Krillin in DBZ, Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece).

2) That Splinter in the OT TMNT and some of the live action movies has been played by both Kiyoshi Kobayashi (Daisuke Jigen in Lupin the 3rd) and Jouji Yanami (Narrator and King Kai for DBZ).
