favorite japanese voice talent

I had to look up who did the voice of Michiru in Uta-Kata.

Tamura Yukari. Very unusual non-squeaky voice. Really liked it.

Was also Kawasumi Mai in Kanon. Very nice, almost hypnotized me.

Any other non-typical voices out there?

I like the person who did the voice of Kenshin in Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin for Japanese version. I think she's really good.

My favorite is Megumi Hayashibara, most would say she's the most-known voice in anime.

Yeah, she's the over-all champ, but she doesn't do the low rich voice stuff.

Having hundreds of Megumi's songs, I can guarantee you she has a very large vocal range, and quite a diverse range of music style. But lately, I've been moving more towards mainstream JPop, since Megumi is fading out of the scene to give herself time to raise her daughter. Of course if she ever releases another album or single, I'll be one of the first people to jump on pre-ordering it.

i like LUCY's voice in elfen lied, and also the lady in full metal alchemist.. (the one that has something to do with SCAR.. i forgot the character's name.. was it LUST?).. their voices are deep.. i don't really like high-pitched squeaky voices like NYUU or most of the girls in shuffle! anime.. except PRIMULA

Continuing my "bump" of threads I missed for some reason or other...

BUMP

I have three favorites. In no particular order, they are Kawasumi Ayako, Yukino Satsuki, and Asakawa Yuu.

Kawasumi Ayako's done Fuu from Samurai Champloo (my fave), Mahoro from Mahoromatic, Aoi from Ai Yori Aoshi, Natsuki from Initial D, and Tazusa from Ginban Kaleidoscope.

Yukino Satsuki's many roles include Chidori from Full Metal Panic (my fave), Kagome from Inuyasha, Nene from Read or Die TV, Tamayo from Angelic Layer, and Tina from Ai Yori Aoshi.

Asakawa Yuu is known for Jura from Vandread (my fave), Motoko from Love Hina, Priss from Bubblegum Crisis 2040, and Sakaki from Azumanga Daioh.

Honorable mentions go out to Horie Yui (Naru - Love Hina, Torou - Fruits Basket, Eri - School Rumble) and Inoue Kikuko (Belldandy - Ah My Goddess, Yayoi - Happy Lesson, Mizuho - Onegai Sensei).

Whew, and there's my exhausting and needlessly long list.

EDIT: Dang, I bumped the wrong one. I should've bumped this one instead since it was longer, and I actually posted in it so it'd be more of an update. Oh well, it'd still be interesting to see if the favorites have changed over time. Mine just increased in likes. I still like Onosaka Masaya voice from the animes I listed, but without more encounters with his voice, it's hard to say he's a "favorite" anymore. A favorite from one specific series, yes, but not so much as a seiyuu as a whole.

EDIT2: Damn, there's yet another one over here. This one's even longer, but I think the one above was more thorough in responses.

EDIT3: Bah! And yet another, that's even longer then the rest. I think this one was around when I was only lurking.
