Why does this man have no fucking range? Every character he voices, its the same copy and paste over and over again. It's not a bad voice, its just fucking annoying to hear it on two completely different characters.

Don't need range to be a good voice actor. They vary.
>>
There are tons of VA's with bad range but great acting skills, Midorikawa is one of those.

/a/ seems to love hating on based Matsuoka lately too because he voices characters they hate, but his acting skills is nothing to laugh at.

It's just grating when I've associated a VA with a certain character, pic related for Midorikawa and then hearing that exact same voice for a character like Mikage or Ayato where it just doesn't fit.
>>
>>124384444
Because for a time, it is what sold as main character material. Unlike Koyasu, however, he has no staying power.
>>
>>124384804
You realize Midorikawa has been voice acting since late 80's/early 90's right? And according to MAL both him and Koyasu has had 92 main roles in their career.
>>
>>124384570
Nope, He's Heero from Gundam Wing

Yes, and I still hear Koyasu in fairly recent shows from time to time, unlike that guy. It could be that Midorikawa also appears just as frequent but I just never hear it.
>>
>>124385244
Midorikawa gets more work in visual novels these days than he does anime roles. So unless you're an avid player of otome, it makes sense you'd think he's taken a back seat in the VA world.

I know Midorikawa is in Kekkai Sensen this season, but Koyasu is in like 10 shows, so I guess you're right. I really like both of them so it's a win-win situation for me.

he makes up for the raw emotion he pours into his characters. and is a really cool guy.

So that's where he's been all that time. At least among otome gamers [and SRW fans] he's still relevant.

He does, you just have really low powerlevel

Maybe they only want that voice out of him.

For every Billy West or Tress MacNeille, there's a guy who they only want for one voice.

Kugirie has a nice voice but it's the same for every character she does. It gets a bit tiring after a while.
>>
>>124384444
You don't hire Bill Gates to hook up your modem and you don't hire Midorikawa because you want to see what kinds of different voices you can get out of him.
>>
>>124388184

There are times when you won't know it's her unless you look up some info, because she's not doing "that" voice.
>>
>>124388184

People always say this, but it's wrong. She has a fuck load of range, you just only recognise her when she does her flat chested tsundere.

Consider her male roles like the guy in Nyaruko or the god in NGNL, or Kagura in Gintama.

And Al from FMA. I love it when Kagura acts like a mature woman.

Also, I had never realized that she was the one who voiced Juuzou in Tokyo Ghoul. I feel so stupid.

I don't think that the range between 8man and Takeo is that big. The guy from Gosick and Takeo though.

>>124391940
Hearing him voice just about any kind of character is always an absolute joy. I really like his personality too: https://youtu.be/QK8XXm4ExcA?t=16m17s (he's been mostly wiping his nose on his sleeve and staring at the floor for the previous 15 minutes. love it.)
>>
i'm fine with no range good acting.
As long as the VA doesn't do 500 shows per season I won't get sick of it

I'll never forget playing Sakura Taisen years ago and hearing his voice coming out of a sexually ambiguous villain after hearing him as Gaara.
>>
>>124385367
Koyasu is always in that many shows. He's not the most prolific seiyuu who's ever lived for nothing.

I love hearing his voice, though, and he sure as hell can act.
>>
>>124391940
His teenage girl voice isn't bad at all.

Reminds of an idea I'll never see where we have a dating sim with character designs by Tsuanko, but the girls are all voiced by male seiyuu.
>>
>>124385244
I get kinda nostalgic looking at that list.
>>
>>124385244
>>124385934
It's kind of jarring seeing long-hair Koyasu again after so long.

Also, Hekiru Shiina really just disappeared, didn't she? (Miyamuu too for the most part, but she's sick, so she has an excuse.) There are rumors that she was a bitch and really difficult to work with, so she probably brought it on herself.

>>124386096
She's 17 years old. Also, don't you dare talk shit about Onee-chan.
>>
>>124391940
Goddamn, his mom and grandma voices are something else. If you didn't know what this was you'd swear it was an older woman talking.

And why has nobody given him a role as a teenage girl yet?

Who is your favorite between Midorikawa/Ishida/Seki ?
>>
>>124385116
I have the same problem with him that I have with Hiroko Taguchi, in that the first big role I heard him in was as a character I really really hated, and the similarity of his voice has tainted my enjoyment of everything he's done since.
>>
>>124394797
Tomokazu Seki or Toshihiko Seki?

I always get those two mixed up, goddammit.

>>124384574

What little range he might have, he makes up for in acting talent.

http://www.mediafire.com/listen/2oghowd94hcocvc/Midorikawa_plays_as_a_nee-san_type_stylist_who_is_stuck_with_you_inside_a_locker.mp3

I would love to punch that cunty looking fuck right in the face.
>>
>>124394866
I don't care for his acting/roles one bit but damn if I don't love him solely because of his work ethic. One rumor (can't find the source, grain of salt, probably mistranslated bs etc.) has it that he got into a big accident and was still trying to hustle while being carried away on a stretcher.
>>
>>124395603
She's in a JAV
>>
>>124385244
That's because Koyasu plays every goddamn cliche anime villain man ever, which is a job you can keep up forever. (see: Wakamoto) Midorikawa even now is primarily a bishounen seiyuu and there are not that many chances for 46 year old guys to play bishounen in anime these days.
