Ikumi's voice sounds decent enough so far, but Megumi's VA will have to prove herself.
I still have the suspicion that the VAs of Erina, Ikumi and Megumi were not chosen simply because J.C. Staff though their voices were the best possible.

(none had any roles of note on record, then they all play together in J.C.'s shitty wixoss anime, and now they're suddenly hired to play three of the most prominent females in the series. Yeah, something smells fucky)


There's nothing unusual here. Basically, there's an agreement between agencies and producers to push new VAs, who're already shortlisted for lead roles in an upcoming anime. Getting them on Wixoss is just a way to test the waters before committing to the real deal.

It's standard industry practice.

All but one of the three were in minor roles in Wixoss as well, so they got more experience being support characters and now it's time to move them forward and give them bigger roles. Hopefully they will nail them!

Bikini top with flames and a nice bod? Yoko would be proud(and all the other bikini top wearers as well).

The voices all seem like they fit, though a bit generic imo. Really looking forward to this regardless. Can't wait!

Damn, my anticipation levels just rose again

Get outta my head. Anime hyper

I was pretty sure I'd pass up this series but after seeing the staff list and the preview I have to say my interest is piqued.
