So why do you guys always complain about Hanazawa being in everything and yet praise Sawashiro when she actually has more roles than her? Don't say it's because Hanazawa has no range, because Sawashiro has a hell of a lot less range than her.
I love both.
She usually play whatever role she got - i.e. leading roles, side characters, background characters, objects, etc, while Hanazawa usually get leading roles. Also, hater gonna hate, no matter reason.
It's because people who don't know what they are talking about like to repeat what they see other people writing on /a/ most of whom also do not know what they are talking about.
Because KanaHana voices shit girls while Sawashiro voices best girls.
Because a good part of current /a/ is made up of tools who are used to the echo-boxes they came from, i.e. reddit/tumblr. So one person complains about KanaHana and everyone starts parroting it every day.
Because her voice is sexy and Hanakana's cute voice is annoying. Binbougami Ga was fucking fantastic though and the opening to Tokyo Ghoul where Hanakana was having the crazy orgasm was great. She needs more crazy roles.
Has there been KanaHana girl vs. Sawashiro girl in any show other than pic related?
Finally someone who speaks the truth.
Who cares about either of them when we know that Maaya Sakamoto is the best?
Reminder that she also married Kenichi Suzumura, who is Kokutou's voice actor.
Sawashiro became a meme among newfags after le funny masturbation girl in Kokoro Connect. She was very popular before it too of course, but she gained a really obnoxious following after Kokoro Connect. Sawashirofags were never annoying before it, nowadays they're garbage.
>Don't say it's because Hanazawa has no range, because Sawashiro has a hell of a lot less range than her.
I'm going to, because it's true. Sawshiro's voice can range from high-pitched squeaky baby to gruff lesbo. Hanazawa basically just has the one voice, but altered slightly depending on how cute she needs to be. She's the Steve Blum of seiyuus.
Yes anon, I have to reply to myself. It's not like you see a 500-pixel-width, color-filtered tumblr image or a choppy 1MB .gif every thread. Yeah, no one would believe me if I said tumblr is pervading this board. It's not like you hear someone complaining about tumblr literally every day, anon.
Guess what? I even have one, anon. I'm just saying, people who live their waking days on reblobs and upboats are the same types who start shitty threads like kyoani vs shaft or Bahamut vs UBW.
>The only people that Sugita enjoy being hit by are Takahashi Mikako and Kugimiya Rie
ANN actually has a feature for that.
>talking louder means you have range
I respect HanaKana as a seiyuu and actually think she's skilled but she has NO RANGE. ICHIKO/CUHRAZY NADEKO/RIZE is not a display of range since you can still easily recognize that it is indeed HanaKana who is voicing these characters. What she is good at though is acting. Didn't she used to be a child actress? Every character she voices has the emotion and intensity suited for that character.
By the way range is overrated. I think it's a great bonus you can have as a seiyuu but to me their acting skill and believably bringing forward the character's personality is more important to me.
>What she is good at though is acting
Sort of. If you watch those compilation videos, her delivery is extremely wooden until To-Love-Ru or somewhere around there. She isn't really emoting that well in Psycho-Pass 2; part of that may be intentional, but it still feels like she's on the verge of stumbling over some of her lines.
Hanazawa is only second because she is in fuck all this season. Not sure why anyone is surprised with Sawashiro spam, she is a bit overused really.
>whoever bitches Mamiko doesn't get roles
Blown the fuck out
The really crazy thing is how Ai Kayano is everywhere, recently I realized she jumped into relevance so quickly I was never even conscious she was ever new.
>Mai Nakahara not on the list
>14 roles this season
>out of that 14 only 2 were mains
>only 2 confirmed roles for next year
I understand she's dying out Japan, but please don't make it this obvious.
It hurts so much
Both Ai Kayano and Ayane Sakura were in Yumekui Merry when they were new(ish.) I thought Merry never became the ideal platform to showcase new seiyuu, and both of them got their breaks in shows following Merry.
Kana looks good though
You sound like someone who doesn't watch anime. I know for a fact that she does voices in 80% of the anime I watch. She's that annoying however the anime is good enough to bypass her annoyance.
Mai Nakahara is a mirace of the goddamn universe.
No but seriously she is, and she needs more roles.
Not role reprisals, new roles, she's got no new ones for winter and it hurts
That being said, I have confidence her reprisal as Teana will be good considering it'll be 7-8 years since she voiced her.
>You will never get ASMR/Binaural audio from Sawashiro
Why even fucking live?
I wonder how much would it cost to commision big name seiyuus to record that. It would probably sell pretty good so why won't they do it? Of course not lewd ones, just whispering.
But they need only a half hour to record it instead of a full day for an anime episode, and then it will sell like hotcakes. I would import like ten copies of some Hayamin earcleaning for fucks sake.
>HanaKana got range
Actually, Sawashiro has more range, which is why most people don't immediately recognize her when she does other voices rather than her low-tone tomboy ones.
>Sawashiro has less range than HanaKana
It has already been pointed out but this is completely false. Sawashiro can do a little squeaky loli or she can do her butch tomboy voice, they don't sound anything alike. You have probably watched an anime with her in it and didn't even notice. Obviously she is not Chiwa Saito but she is not totally without range.
KanaHana I wouldn't say has a range, but she can emote well and change her tone and accent and in general bring to life her character - not as well and not as extreme of a case as somebody like Kamiya ("only one voice" but totally brings to life his characters and somehow makes them all unique) but still.
However, they both get typecasted heavily so it seems like they can only do one voice each.
I dislike both VAs but at least HanaKanafags aren't as obnoxious as the Sawashirofags
>whoever bitches Mamiko doesn't get roles
>Blown the fuck out
He's just a casual fan who doesn't even follow his favorite VA. I bet he doesn't even listen to Chikyuu Note.
14 roles for someone with the softest most beautiful voice in the industry is disgusting.
I think Kana Hana's time is up, She's still a good VA but I don't think she'll be the top dog like she has been these last years.
>14 roles for someone with the softest most beautiful voice in the industry is disgusting.
But Mamiko Noto got 13.
I have a lot of fun in that radioshow she ahs with HanaKana
what constitutes a-list? yukarin, nana and who else? some anon posted how hanakana's casual clothes are somewhat expensive, but i don't think she's there yet
Nana is very much on a tier of her own. Yes.
KYuu needs more roles. Her shrill persona probably kills her throat butt it makes me diamonds.
>not watching all of the shows per season that feature your favorite seiyuu
>not following her radio shows too
And you call yourself a 声豚
according to japanese anitwitter, yes
There was a video almost like this a while back.
When the PS3 JoJo game came out, someone made a compilation of all of Jolyne's lines.
It had a strange effect, hearing so much Sawashiro variety in a row.
>there are people on this planet who unironically with a straight face with no shitposting intent what so ever, say they like Hanakana over Sawashiro
>there are people on this planet who unironically with a straight face with no shiposting intent what so ever, say that Kaji Yuuki isn't talented.
[kajiwara sora singing a song]
I notice HanaKana and her generic voice much more than Sawashiro, so I complain about her. I don't believe she has no range but I will say she has a "best" voice (she may have range but her other voices aren't optimal) and it's the one you hear most often. It's an annoying voice.
She's not Rie-tier in terms of range. Rie has a "desired" voice (generic tsundere) but her entire range is fantastic. That's a good seiyuu for you.
>Aoi Yuuki is once again a guest in Nanatsu no Taizai Radio this week
>new どやラジ uploaded around an hour ago
What a good day.
I believe this doesn't simply take into account how much they're paid for a role.
A "proper" seiyuu has multiple roles a year, is an idol, does drama cds, does music, does radio shows, does signing events, and so on and so forth. Lots of ways to make money as a prominent VA.
Fuck. Do you think it's a good idea to learn the spoken language first, and then the kanji if I really need it? I know the opposite is recommended but it really doesn't work for me.
Not him but personal recommendation, learn the Kana and then some basic grammar/Kanji and then just fuck around on Niconama for some months.
You will learn plenty of slang and conversational Japanese there besides having fun.
To be honest that's what I did, I wanted to know what they're saying, and if you're not going to read why bother? But you can learn from listening to how does it write too.
I have my anki deck and try reading manga with furigana to practice kanji and such. But Hiragana and katakana are a must no matter what
>tfw we will never hear this voice again
My favorite seiyuu doesn't get too much roles frequently, and only releases songs like, once or twice every year.
Notes taken. Obviously I started to learn, so I know kana, but still, learn a kanji and it's meanings is too much. I can only learn it if I get the meaning first then I can memorize the kanji separately.
Spoken language is more important when listening to radio shows (and the occasional Tokyo Encounter.) Learn the sentence structures, listen and identify parts of speech, and guess the meaning from context.
I really really wonder where she puts the millions she earns every year.
You're not alone anon.
>mfw cross ange confirmed, nana as main
>mfw all star cast
I expected it to be fun, but i didn't expect it to be comedy gold of the year.
GF(Kari) is a goldmine for VA fags.
> mfw last episode of GF had YuiKaori
I'm fucking mad that Yukarin`s character hasn't gotten any more than 2 lines and like, a few seconds of appearing in the background without saying anything.
Aoi Yuuki loli is nice though.
>Sawashiro has a hell of a lot less range than her.
But that's wrong you fucking retard.
I miss the time where Nana`s hair is short.
Reminder that all these characters were voiced by the same person.
Reminder that there's no brakes on the Nao Touyama Express.
(Hopefully no one will post that poll of characters most likely to engage in "compensated dating", with five of her characters in it.)
Hanazawa isn't bad, her range is pretty good too, she's just forced into roles where she needs to put on her iconic "soft moe character voice" too often. I just think Sawashiro has a better voice overall.
They're both good, but Hanazawa is less good, it has nothing to do with popularity.
