>Everyone talks about their seiyuu flavour of the month
>Everyone acts like Maaya Sakamoto still isn't the GOAT of GOATs
21 years mother fuckers, and she's still the best. Also, that heavenly voice is still heavenly
What's her best role? What's her best OP or ED?
Best role: Nino
Best OP or ED: Toss up between Down Town, Gravity or Million Clouds
What I love about Maaya Sakamoto is that there is always excellence in her performance, whether she's singing or acting. And she never seems to use the same voice for a role twice. It's always a nice surprise to hear a great song or voice and I look it up to find that it's Maaya Sakamoto.
If being a seiyuu wasn't an idol business she'd certainly get more recognition.
You say that like it's a bad thing. You gotta have some sort of standards
it's already been established that Yukarin is the GOAT. only plebs with shit taste would dare think otherwise
>it's already been established that Yukarin is the GOAT
>Damn near ended her own career over a midlife crisis
Let me know when she's anywhere near Nana's level in sales, success, talent and longevity.
That's what makes her better. She's not eternal goddess status
Nana's only good as a singer and an alpha dyke
Married to her OTP though. That's the best kind of marriage.

These three are my holy trinity.
I don't have a source handy, but this is true. She gave an interview a while back discussing how creating music is a personal thing to her, and she wants the songs she releases to come from her, not from a 2D character. This seems to line up with her continuing to discover herself as a musician and writing a greater percentage of the songs on her recent albums (Singer Songwriter was 100% written AND composed by her). IIRC it's the reason White Lies or whatever they used for the Shinobu arc was an instrumental.
This is mostly beside the point anyway since Maaya is a flawless goddess and she can do whatever the fuck she wants.
>>Damn near ended her own career over a midlife crisis
First I've heard of this; details?
She's also going to be pic related/
secondbest girl in Kekkai Sensen again this year.
When I lived in Japan I rented so many shitty Western movies just so I could watch them with the JP dub track on and listen to her lovely voice coming out of Kristin Stewart's or Natalie Portman's mouth.
True that. Maaya is one hell of an actress; she's supposedly been doing theater since she was a kid, and boy does it show - she's a consummate pro. I've seen her on stage twice, in Les Miserables and pic related, and the presence she has onstage is incredible. "Lights up the room" is an understatement.
I love Toyosaki Aki.
That kid is going to be Megumi Han to the nth power levels of talented. Also probably hot to boot.
These guys are losers. That "iku wa yo" was way hotter than the moeblob lines.
Is this worth watching just for Maaya's character? I've watched way worse shit just to hear her voice (worst so far is Appleseed XIII. She was also a guest character in one episode of Joker Game, so I have to see that now too.)
Almost as great was the way there used to be all kinds of rumors that she and Mamoru Miyano were an item. It probably did a good job of drawing attention away from her and Suzuken.
Best role: I still really like her as Hitomi, honestly.
Best OP/ED: Be mine! (Zvezda) and Buddy (Last Exile) have grown on me extremely.
Really weird she still hasn't had a Pokemon role until now considering how long she's been in the industry and the fact that her husband voiced Steven last season.
Well, Nana is mostly known as singer than a seiyuu, nobody will mention Nana, if aspiring seiyuu being asked who are they look up as seiyuu but if they are idol seiyuu wannabe they will mention Nana as the seiyuu they look up to or want to be.
There is this seiyuu general election yesterday when other popular seiyuu picked their favorite
>>152065650 and Nana can't even make it top 25, I expected her to be in it but then I realize her popularity come first from her being a big pop singer than a seiyuu.
Only Miyukichi made it at #4 from rather young generation though she is actually veteran
Yesterday was horrendous. Nice reminder that there is an entirely different kind of bias in that sector of the industry.
And Sawashiro has been phoning in performances for years now.
>mediocre actress snatching others' roles with the power of nepotism
She sings nice I can give that
>Seiyuu general election
>looks down upon new generation female seiyuu because of their career choice(singer/idol), completely ignoring acting ability
>yet Yamadera only gets the places he gets in those polls because he host a dumb variety show
Epic. Simply epic.
That Suwabe got into the Top20 because of Yaoi on Ice speaks tons about the event.
That is what typical mad idolseiyuufags said. Kek, why would popular seiyuu pick another seiyuu around their pear, when they know the politic making stars and idols behind their popularity. Those veteran are in those jobs for years and still relevant, they are legend.
>Put down Yamadera
Why are you such low human being?
Cute af and getting cuter with the passing of every year
the blood of failed idol seiyuu must be keeping her youthful
>And she never seems to use the same voice for a role twice
What I hate now is that seiyuus nowadays always use the same voice for all the new roles they get, such as Hanakana o Hayamin
>I only find that a problem when they get cast too often
Which happens quite often recently. A seiyuu gets big and then is voicecasted in 4-5 different roles in a season using the same voice.
The latest example being Takahashi Rie
you just missed the thread.
I see it as a business-side issue (large quantity of seasonal anime + archetype characters streamline typecasting + low pay + idol marketing strategies). Something actors don't have much control over.
See you in the archives anon
She's loli baa-san right?
>inb4 Bb-b-b--b-but 2.5D
No it's not fuck off
> And she never seems to use the same voice for a role twice
I literally just watched Magi and I watched Kara no Kyokai last week.
LITERALLY THE SAME VOICE
Why are seiyuufags such a piece of shit liars?
Sawashiro has some variety to her. Black Rock Shooter, Logicomas in GITS Arise, landlady in Hidamari Sketch, Wakakozake, as well as generic shit like Monkey. She started off with DiGi Charat after all. Plus she gets a lot of opportunities for drama.
I guess I should get going.
In the next 2 Year I will married Izumi Kitta.
I ESL-KUN will make Izumi Kitta my wife.
On second thought, here's an alternate place to watch all of them. Just type in "Risky Safety" and you're good to go.:
