Objectively speaking, a lot of newer seiyuu(late 2000s-now) are better than those who come before them. They can act better and are certainly more versatile than older seiyuu. Nostalgiafags/pseudo-nostalgiafags might tell you otherwise, but don't believe them.

You should be thankful that the anime industry is now better than ever thanks partly to the ever improving quality of voice acting in anime.

I think the average level has improved somewhat, but I feel like there aren't really any new voices that are as distinctive. The most distinctive voices are relatively old (Wakamoto/Kugimiya/Koyasu) or didn't really make it big for some reason. (Omigawa)

Not a fan of her personally but I think she's pretty good. While her voice isn't all that distinctive she manages to sound genuine, in a seemingly effortless way. I guess her role as Futaba kinda spoiled her for me as I don't like this kind of exaggeratedly plain character, like Kobayashi this season.
In some of her roles, and as Emilia in particular, she takes a very sweet voice, seductive in a subtle way, and I find that a bit grating, it's like she's whispering to my hear "fap to my character and don't forget to buy the merchandise".

Been going back and watching a lot of early 90's anime for the first time.

What op says is mostly true, although I think there's more too it.

Back then the recording equipment was not as good and often the recording itself sounded very airy and washed out, so it made it sound a bit worse.

The types of rolls have also changed, there are in general way more "Meme" characters in modern anime then there were in the 90's. Sure many tropes still existed, but go watch something like "The idol master Cinderella girls" and half the cast are literally Archtypes. The overly cute girl, the yami no yami chunibyuu girl, the lazy girl, the quiet girl, the genki girl, the nyaa girl, etc..

I think to some extent these types of roles have "one voice" assosiated with them, and are in many cases voice acted in the exact same way from different people. There seems to be an idea of how these archtypes should sound.

So I can understand certain people thinking that modern voice actors don't express the same range of emotions that the older one's did. But I think that is mostly nostalgia, becuase while there are more "meme" voices, there are also more talented ones.

There are far more people working in the japanese voice acting industry than there used to be. Pretty much every role in a show is filled by an actual voice actors/actresses, not a family/friend/people at the studio like they used to be.

There is waaaaay more competition to be the best in the industry now and because of this I there are way more skilled voice actors/actresses than there used to be.
>>
>>154376460
how else are they going to get directors to fuck them for their roles?

But actually many Seiyuu's do live events so being ugly is pretty much a no go, in most cases.
>>
>>154379900
I agree, but I would say that back then they most likely left the characterization to the VA, while nowadays they try to squeeze them into the role no matter what. I know of a recent show where they slightly changed characters because they let the VAs define them personality wise.
Basically, if they have so many actors to choose from, they can pick the one who fits into the archetype the most, I guess.
>>
>>154380183
What show are you talking about?
>>
>>154380745
Cross Ange.
I don't know how precedent it was back then. But there were less actors, they probably let them voice the characters as they wanted. I might be wrong though.
>>
With how much she likes Zelda, I am surprised Aoi hasn't said anything about Breath of the Wild yet. Maybe she doesn't buy into the open-world meme.
On the other hand, she is on her second playthrough of Nier Automata.

My sister just graduated and is headed out to be a professional seiyuu. She speaks both English and Japanese fluently. I think with the way anime is today, situations like this will be more common, and for more that just the English Language. I'm sure a future Asuka would be played by a German/Japanese actress. At least one who can speak the language. I thank you, anime fans, for making the industry what it is today.

No one decent wants to dub anime because the pay is terrible.
>>
>>154383335
that and it's a very cliquey group.

They literally never audition for roles, they only keep asking the same people over and over again.

There are plenty of people who would like to do it.

Also the pay is terrible because a dub of a niche show is going to have an even more niche audience. The only dubs that are even relatively profitable are the biggest shows of the year.

>>154377555

Megumi Hayashibara is a registered nurse and would have been a nurse had she not become a voice actress (that was her original course anyway; I think that Pokemon episode with Jessie as a nurse was based on her life experiences or something).

What's with all the no-name seiyuu retiring lately? Over the past year or so it's become common news for seiyuu to go into retirement. Granted, except for Tomo Sakurai, the seiyuu who announced their retirement were generally unpopular ones with few roles, but it still feels like they're dropping like dead flies. Why?

>>154388723
It doesn't hurt too much given that they didn't disband and are still around both as a group and as solo artists. What would really suck though is if, god forbid, one of them went on hiatus or even retired.

To be fair, she's only limited in what singles she's put out so far (and Fuwa Fuwa Time and that other K-On! song from the second concert, was it U&I?) and we don't get to hear a real demonstration of her skills using other songs so what piano playing we hear from her is "just okay".
