Seiyuu Wishlist - Haruhi
'Ojou' really isn't how I imagine Itsuko anymore...
Mai Nakahara maybe?
I mean, I know she can voice characters other than Nagisa/Rena/Estelle, but I've never heard her do anything else...
Have you watched Kannagi? She voices a non-Rena-like character there. Also Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo.
She's got a voice-personality range, thus can probably fit whatever you need for Itsuko. Also has her yelling, attack, angry voice that can be used for those moments against the Cave Cricket. She also have a cute laugh (not the Rena laugh, the Nagisa laugh). She's also done a different Nagisa...from Strawberry Panic, so can pull off implied lesbianism towards Kyon-chan (much like the scene in Clannad with Nagisa asking Ryou to join the Drama Club).
I've never heard Mai Nakahara in a combat situation, ever.
Think I need to actually play Utaware...
And she was the ojou in Kannagi? Huh. Didn't even realize.
I've gotta catch up on Sora Kake anyway, so I'll pay more attention when Kagura shows up...
Mai Nakahara is a great voice actress, but I just can't see her as Itsuko, since playing the entirety of Clannad has cemented her as Nagisa in my mind.
Well for combat there is her Rena voice (The sixth arc..basically episode 22-26), Mai (Mai Hime), and even Riemu in the recent Touhou Anime.
As for playing Itsuko...it depends on how she is to be played. If it is like Itsui, playful aloof with moments of seriousness and the ability to pull of combat yelling one one point, is required. Yuri over/undertones in the "your face is too close" instances might be a bonus.
Mai Nakahara just doesn't sound sexy enough, in all honesty.
This is why I suggest Ami Koshimizu doing her Horo voice.
Nakahara Mai at one point was one of my favourite female seiyuu because she was voicing pink haired ecchi, action female leads.
The dark pink haired girl at the bottom of this pic, the most SFW I can find of Godannar:
Nanbu Chitose, Amaenaideyo!, NSFW:
Ecchi mecha, Gravion, Eina, far right:
Most people should know Teana:
Nakahara Mai has good experience in sexy ecchi characters and have taken part in combat in mecha, magic and even against the undead.
That might explain why some people were waiting (in vain mostly) to hear Nagisa screaming. I suspected that, but didn't know it for a fact.
I just don't see it.
If someone could offer an appropriate voice clip...
Not sure if she can do sexy/seductive. But she can do sexy/innocent/tease. "It is okay, I trust Kyon-chan."
Okay, after watching SoraKake and hearing her sing in Regios, I can see why Mai Nakahara could do Itsuko, and well.
And in what way did this change your mind? (not heard her voice in the listed series)
There's this character called "Kagura" that shows up in these odd dream sequences. Basically acts all mysterious and ambiguous, much like Itsuko. She's voiced by Mai Nakahara and sounds NOTHING like Nagisa, Rena, or Felli.
And then there was this epic moment in Episode 10.
Just... watch Sorakake.
Sorakake is the best anime this season, actually very high up in my mecha favourites list. I'd say top 10 even when the show hasn't completed yet. The more mecha you watch, the higher Sorakake would be on your list.
This "Kagura" in any earlier episodes?
Look for a lady in a jazz bar whenever Akiha's dreaming.
I was actually disappointed that there weren't any jazz bar dream sequences in episode 13 (watched it raw, so no need to ask about subs)... for whatever reason, those scenes are becoming some of my favorites in the show. (Sort of like how the Legend of Regios scenes in Chrome Shelled Regios are so popular, though I think a lot of that can be attributed to the incredibly cheesy Engrish.)
"Look for a lady in a jazz bar whenever Akiha's dreaming."
. . . that kinda sounds like a bizarre plot point in a murder mystery...
*e* had to add the quote...
