It's either depends on the personality of the character or how old the character is. The younger male characters are usually done by women because most men have deep voices and can't manipulate their voices to make a convincing child's voice.

Women voicing male characters in anime is very common....even in english dubs (Ash Ketchum-pokemon). Usually, you only see this in younger characters, because don't you think it would be strange for a 12 year old boy to have a deep yoice? So I think this is done to show youth, and usually, the voice actors are very convincing as males!!!

too make then sound young i think, if voiced by a male it might sound like they are too old for the age they look like (all guesses here by the way).

It's probably because if they got a male voice actor his voice would be too for the character and only a kid's voice would fit the character and you can't really take a kid from school and say "you're gonna voice Luffy for 10 years" now can you? lol. So they get women to do the young male voices...that's what I think anyway


Damn, I was gonna say something like that!

Well, I guess It's because the animator wants the character to have a pretty soft voice to match It's cute character but the problem Is not much men sounds like that ,so they goot find a supplement for that which is finding females voice characters of course,Well that's what I think so you don't have to believe what I say

^Listen to his voice. You'll mistake his voice as a true male, not a female even though she is voiced by Ryoko Shiraishi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryoko_Shiraishi);



and to his voice. He is voiced by Marina Inoue (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Inoue).

Well I think that the younger boys are done by girls because when men talk in a high/young voice, they just sound funny. Plus, I think most young boys sound like girls anyways :P
