Awesome! I love their work! I've wanted to hear more of Yukiyo Fujii since her minor role in Heartcatch Precure, so hearing her as Sailor Saturn will be awesome! Very Happy

it's a funny coincidence how the main villain was voiced by Kenshiro in the original anime,and now the true villain behind the man will be voiced by Toki in this version.

Also Tomoe himself in Crystal is voiced by Shin from the New Savior films & Han from the Ken's Rage 2 game. Laughing

I was personally hoping for Mitsuki Saiga for Uranus, if they were going to go with a more well-known actress, but oh well.

Minagawa's done both male roles and tough female roles, so she should be able to pull off Uranus' gender ambiguous voice well.

Ohara as Neptune I'm waiting to hear, since she's done both flighty characters (Iri in the Fate franchise, Raquel in Scrapped Princess) and sultry characters (ohai der, Yuuko...). If she can hit that middle ground (wise and mature, but not too deep), like a few of her characters (maybe closer to Sayaka from God Eater), it won't be bad, but I still want to hear her first.

So that's three voice actresses from Aria in this series now, combining them with Ryou Hirohashi (Luna). Quite a few actresses from World Trigger, too. Not surprising, considering that series is made by Toei.

I also have to admit that I kind of applaud Toei for, much like the original series, not getting huge-name actresses for most of the new cast this season.

Hmm. I'm not sure I'm familiar with the names, but I'll bet I've heard them (apparently I've heard Neptune as Raquel, and I liked her there!). I look forward to hearing them all! ♥

Also super pumped for new art by Naoko. I kind of hope it's hyper long and wispy like the new cover art, but I'm curious about how it'll look. (Maybe like her art for the reprint we have in the US, since this anime's style is rounder and softer.)

The volume is low but here's a short clip from the event with Uranus & Neptune's VAs.

I think it would be even better if Viz uploaded the latest "R" dubbed episodes on Hulu. It might be they haven't yet since they have been working hard on Crystal.

Fixed!

The R dub was posted months ago & has been out on disc for a while.

I'm not familiar with these voice actresses, but Fairy Tail fans can rejoice that Sailor Neptune is being voiced by Erza herself.
