Are there any seiyuu or voice actors/actresses that you've followed through several projects? This includes Japanese actors as well as people who voice English dubs.

I have a few:

1) Megumi Hayashibara - I started following her without completely realizing it at first, because she shows up in some of the most popular titles in the world. But she really wooed me with her contributions to the Slayers OSTs, which are still mainstays on my playlists for work.

2) Steve Blum - Uh, we know Steve Blum.

3) Megumi Ogata - My first anime was Sailor Moon, and she did serious justice to the character of Haruka Tenou/Sailor Uranus, to the point where buying the hard-subbed VHS tapes was worth it. She also got me on board with watching the original version of Evangelion.

You?

I've been following Sakurai Takahiro since his Cloud Strife days, and he has been my seiyuu crush for the past ten years. I'll always know if a character is voiced by him. :)

Then there's the powerful duo of Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke.

My other favorites include: Suzumura Kenichi, Sugita Tomokazu, Namikawa Daisuke, Hirakawa Daisuke, Tomoaki Maeno, Suwabe Junichi, Nakamura Yuichi, Fukuyama Jun, Yuki Kaji, Tsuda Kenjiro, Okamoto Nobuhiko, Hosoya Yoshimasa, Miyano Mamoru, Kimura Ryohei, Taniyama Kishow, Shinichiro Miki, Kakihara Tetsuya, Ono Yuuki, Ono Kensho, Midorikawa Hikaru, Kazuya Nakai, Konishi Katsuyuki, Kazuhiko Inoue, Yousa Kouji, Okiayu Ryotarou, and Suzuki Tatsuhisa.

Among the new seiyuus, I think Ishikawa Kaito, Nobunaga Shimazaki, Umehara Yuuichiro, Uchiyama Kouki, Toshiki Masuda, and Ohsaka Ryota are very cute and charismastic.

I'm more of a male seiyuu fan because hngggggg, they're so sexy. XD

Hiroshi Kamiya - Koyomi Araragi from Monogatari and Kiyoshi Fujino from Prison School.

I like his voice, and hes one I easily recognize.

Tomokazu Sugita - Gintoki Sakata from Gintama and tons of other stuff, I know its him when I hear it.

Yukari Tamura is a seiyuu that will get me to try usually any show. Now, she doesn't always make the show, but usually promises to make it worth my time. Jibril (NGNL), Rikka (Higurashi), Masuzu (OreShura), etc.

Hayami Saori is becoming the same, I will admit. Hatoko (Inou-Battle), Ayase (OreImo), Shirayuki (Akagami no Shirayuki), etc.

Hiroshi Kamiya and Miyuki Sawashiro are my personal favorites. I can always tell when a character is voiced by one of them. Props also to Kana Hanazawa and Yui Horie, who are so ridiculously prolific that I've come to recognize them.

I agree with you on Hayami Saori! I first saw Oregairu and I also liked her work as Yukino. She was also great in Inou-Battle (that crying rant she did was awesome) and Shiraishi Urara in Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.

There are a ton, but here's probably my most notable favorites:

Saori Hayami, Yoko Hikasa, and Miyuki Kawashiro. Risa Taneda, as mentioned above me, as well.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Yuuki Ono, and Yuki Kaji

In English, I'd go with Cherami Leigh, Jason Liebrecht, and probably Robert McCollum?

Anyone from my favorite series, in both English and Japanese. My favorite series are Code Geass and K, and they have a lot of overlap in both languages.

I like a few Texas-dubbed things, but I don't follow those voice actors as much as I used to.

I love noticing when characters are the same voice in both English and Japanese. Both Lelouch and Suzaku have a few of those. I also like it when one character shares a voice with one character in one language and a connected character in the other - like, Shinra from DRRR!! is Lelouch in Japanese and Suzaku in English. Also, Yata is Lelouch in Japanese, and Fushimi is Lelouch in English. I would love to make a trivia game with that sort of thing. ^_^;

. . . I also like guessing/ making hopeful lists for dub casts of shows that haven't had them yet (like Akito the Exiled), and making English and Japanese "If they made an anime of this" lists for manga and novels that I read that don't have anime.

Inoue Marina - I instantly became a fan after hearing her performance as Tsukiumi (Sekirei).
