Some Paprika quotes:
I was planning to do some really long review on this movie but my self-implemented deadline was pushed too damn far and majority of my reactions are already gone. Continue reading
I am so behind the times, really. I haven’t watched most of the Spring titles since I got busy with work. I might drop some of them eventually but for now, I have to catch up with them before my monthly anime stat post is due. First up we have: B Gata H Kei!
I honestly think that without the distinct voices behind them, the characters in an anime would be nothing – the personality of a character shows in how he/she sounds when speaking. I’m so fascinated by the entire seiyuu industry and I really admire them seiyuu because they do their jobs so well. This is also the reason why I don’t care for foreign dubbing in all its half-assed glory (although there are a few good anime dubs out there but they’re rare so whatever).
Anyway, I’m not here to argue on which is better – subtitles or foreign dubbing – because that’s a matter of opinion and not entirely of facts. I’m just here to talk about some of my favorite seiyuu events that you’ll find on Youtube and anywhere else. Livejournal communities are also a goldmine for that kind of stuff, especially if you’re a member of a community dedicated to one anime.
To be honest, I’m not a seiyuu geek – I can only remember a few names and what names I do remember they’re usually attached to a single role. That’s how bad I am at this. I just like watching them do the voices because sometimes it’s so disorienting to hear that voice and see from which mouth it comes out from. An example would be a boy’s voice done by a female – common in anime, yes, but really weird to see for the first time.
So here are some of my favorite events, not really concerts though.
I’m lying. I’m not exactly a new-born fujoshi but I definitely feel renewed and born again after going to that Yaoi Convention. That’s their poster right there.
