Post Reply Do you pick anime by voice actors
Posted 3/8/13 , edited 3/8/13
For certain ones I do, like the Queen of tsundere I love her work. But if the title's story sounds appealing to me; then I'll check it out, then at the end of the episode, I decided I keep watching the anime or not.

No- simply for the fact that like all actors they are assigned certain projects by contract.I pick anime by series descriptions and then give them a 4 episode test run before I decide to watch the series. I find most all Japanese voice acting to be very good.

If Kenichi Suzumura or Maaya Sakamoto's in it, I'll usually check it out. Otherwise, it doesn't matter to me, but I am getting tired of seeing Kana Hanazawa and Eri Kitamura everywhere these days.

As for the dubs, it's usually Trina Nishimura. Her performance in Steins;Gate and Eva 2.0 was great.

As long as the voice actor fits the character well, I don't care.

Not usually, but I was excited when I heard that it was the voice actress of Nyaruko-San would also be on Medaka Box Abnormal.

mmmm

Not initially,

I first check the genre and the animation style first then the story and then I check who the seiyuu are . Its always a plus when your favorite seiyuu are in it and if they have interesting characters ...in a good anime of course but not all the time if the anime sucks like Amnesia then I just see a waste of good talent.

I am very particular with the seiyuu becuase I am a trained voice actor as well.

And if their characters are annoying and the writing is poor, I tend not to finish watching the series.

But for good shows like for example...
Hunter X Hunter . Gon and Kilua's seiyuu are both young newer seiyuu but they are doing a great job with their characters and matching how the earlier seiyuu did it.

But I choose to watch it first becuase of the title itself.

No I don't. I mostly pick anime by synopsis. If I like the summary of what the anime is then I will watch it. Although, it's funny that the english voice actor of Revy from Black Lagoon is the same person who does Gilda from My little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Now I can't watch Black Lagoon without thinking of MLP. AAARGH lol. It's quite comical, actually.


She also voiced Bubbles in the Japanese version of the Powerpuff Girls.

No. It depends on the art, animation, and story. Most of the time, though, I'll just watch anything.

No. But when they dub the anime in to english i have the bad habbit to do it xD. But mainly i pick up anime by story or manga.


This! I don't do it for the Japanese versions but when it gets dubbed I look at who they got, good indication of if they put effort into it or just casted their b-listers. Bad dubs are just too horrible.
