Discuss your favorite seiyuu and/or
Which currently airing show has the best seiyuu cast in your opinion?
Come to think of it, I never did a non-joke 3x3.
I have too many male seiyuus that I like, it's hard to narrow them down.
j-just go with the flow
Confirmed for only watching the pokemon dub.
I spent $50 and went to the Guest Receptionduring Day 1, but I spent most of it at Ueda Kana's table most of the time so I didn't get to interact with him too much. I do know that by the time I went over to his table, he was about to leave and he looked really tired from having to sign autographs. I'm guessing he was jetlagged from flying into Seattle that morning. I asked if I could ask him one quick question and the translator said it had to be quick and so I asked him if he's read 16.5and all I got was a quick "No I haven't," then they left.
I never went to his panels, but apparently no one asked him about 16.5 either.
>Aoi Yuuki will never slap the shit out of you
I never got what this is from and what the context behind it is.
>he looked really tired from having to sign autographs
I'd be tired dealing with con goers too. In his case (and other foreign guests'), the effort is doubled because he can't communicate directly and he needs to rely on a translator to have a conversation.
Kana Ueda stories, then?
That is wrong.
It was during a Dengeki Bunko event last year.
Matsuoka was the MC of that segments (Kirito's Room or something), Aoi Yuuki and Kawahara were as surprise guests.
Matsuoka was nervous and dropping his spaghetti as per usual so Aoi asked him if he wanted her to slap him, so he could regain his composure. He didn't deny her offer.
Marina Inoue has a main role this season, I'm pretty happy with that.
Typically, Guest Reception is just people asking questions to the guest at their table, so I'm just gonna list some things she answered. Most of the questions asked were in regards to Fate and Saki, with a little bit of MariMite. I don't think anyone asked about Blazblue at her table or if they did it was in moon and I didn't notice since I'm fairly weak at my understanding of it.
-About voicing Rin for about 10 years, Ueda said that when the DEEN anime started, the casters thought that her inexperience as a seiyuu helped with authenticity of Rin's inexperience as a mage. As time went on, Ueda finds it easier to do Rin's more serious, toned down voice inflections than her tsundere or shouting moments than it was in the past.
-Some guy also asked about the whole "Archer class is filled with archers" line, and Ueda said that was what was in the script so she didn't question it.
-Someone asked about whether she corpses/laughs during the scenes with Itou Shizuka whenever Rin and Luvia interact with one another (I'm guessing Prisma Illya since that's the only time they would be recording in the same booth together). Ueda said that she and Shizuka are actually best friends IRL and that they also improvised a lot of the scenes between the two of them in Illya. You'd probably have to look at the dialogue differences in Prisma Illya to know which ones were added.
Something else I missed: When recording for the DEEN anime, the animation's already finished and the seiyuu had to match the lipflap when delivering dialogue. For the ufotable anime (Zero and UBW), the seiyuu deliver their lines first and the scenes are animated around their recorded dialogue.
Saki related questions:
-Someone asked about the Saki DVD Extra where her, Itou Shizuka, Shiraishi Ryoko, and Kugimiya Rie played mahjong with each other. Koshimizu Ami (Nodoka's) seiyuu isn't there and that person asked if it was because Koshimizu didn't know how to play or if she wasn't very good. Ueda said that Koshimizu is actually the 2nd best player of the Kiyosumi seiyuu.
-Ueda also says there's a mahjong league among other seiyuu that they play in, and that Fukuyama Jun (Kyou in Saki) is the best overall player.
-The Kiyosumi seiyuu and most of the other schools in Season 1 all knew how to play mahjong prior to being in Saki, but the Achiga seiyuu learned after the Achiga-hen anime. Ueda says that she's never played the Achiga seiyuu in actual matches, unclear if the other Kiyosumi seiyuu have though.
-Ueda never goes for Rinshan Kaihou unless they're filming their playing sessions for a program or something similar.
-Ueda likes Idolm@ster. Her favorite character is Rin from Cinderella Girls.
-Ueda also likes Love Live, and her favorite is Kotori. There was a Japanese speaking fan at the table that repped Kotori as a waifu and had a Kotori bag adorned with Kotori buttons and the like.
-Ueda asked if Sakuracon was the biggest anime convention in the US, but the consensus for that was AX. Someone mentioned Comic Con being the biggest general convention.
-Ueda talked a bit about playing fighting games, and how she liked going to Las Vegas last year for EVO. Another person at the table was wearing an EVO shirt and she asked if he went last year. He did, so she remembered meeting him.
After all this was people moving around and asking if guests would sign things for them and take pictures if they were allowed; Ueda's managers or whoever did not allow pictures unfortunately. I just got a shikishi board signed that I'll post here, but the guy that asked "Archers are full of archers" question came to Ueda with like seven things to sign. Ueda didn't mind, but everyone else at the table were all glaring at him. After about 15 minutes of this stuff, everyone just sat down around the table again and asked some remaining questions (at this time, I went to Matsuoka's table), and then it was over.
Saori the glorious goddess has the highest roles or 2nd out of VA's this season.
What a time to be alive.
If I wanted to marry a boring seiyuu that has a habit of voicing really bad characters in really bad anime I'd sooner go with a Maaya Uchida cause at least she's easy on the eyes
Thanks for the info anon. It makes me like Ueda Kana more. I never knew she was into fighting games. It's too bad she doesn't get as many roles as he used to.
She was a Guest at EVO, but she didn't have a panel or anything. She had an autograph session, and she also gave medals and trophies to the Top 8 players in the Blazblue finals last year. She actually did the same at Sakuracon for ASW's "The Blazblue Experience" event where they did the Top 4 for BBCP and Guilty Gear Xrd.
Why would we ever want to do that? They are basically funding a full series of symphogear
