Vampire Knight - Voice Actor Appreciation & Discussion

The purpose of this thread is to discuss, critique and idolize the Voice Actor cast of Vampire Knight. Please remember that the discussion should center on their performances as professional voice actors and not on the show content (which can be discussed in the various Episode threads). Please remember this simple rule when critiquing a VA's performance or reading another forum member's critique:
  • - Don't take it personally.
    In other words, youíre free to disagree with another personís opinion, but donít flame them if they offer a well written and well thought out analysis that differs from your own opinion. Keep it civil.

  • - Voice Actors are humans.
    Yes, itís true. Theyíre human. Therefore, donít just indiscriminately rip them and their work apart as if theyíre inorganic objects. You donít have to praise them non-stop, but be thoughtful in your criticism.
This thread might duplicate some discussion in the Episode threads, but it can also serve to demystify various VA roles, disseminate VA information (VA Bios, VA photos, etc) and provide cast information of various types as well as discussion about performances.

Yui Horie's voice fits perfectly well over Yuki. Nothing less from Yui Horie.

Horie as Yuki = expected. Then again, I wouldn't mind Mizuki Nana/Saito Chiwa. Heck, even Sakamoto Maaya as Yuki may be... wait, Yuki isn't that serious....

I was more excited by the male cast. For me, female voices tend to blend together, especially if you don't watch that much anime. I can tell the gents' voices apart more frequently than the ladies'.

Miyano Mamoru is spot-on as Zero.

I really am loving Miyano as Zero. I figured he'd sound like Raito and Kamui but with Zero's state his voice fits even more. Though I love his spazzing Tamaki voice, Im really loving his sexy voice for his. I wasnt sure about Kaname's voice since I wasnt too familar with the seiyuu but Im liking it. Gives Kaname the cool, intelligent, sexiness he already has. I keeo forgetting the Sawabe Junichi is Kain Since Im also hearing him in Monochrome Factor, Kain and Shirogane dont sound really the same. Kain is much more subdued so I forget its him, but still lovely to listen too. Really the seiyuu cast is excellent for this 8D

Fukuyama used his Yumichika voice here, as far as I can tell.

AS for Miyano, more of Light Yagami than Setsuna, a good mix of both. A little angst and more "in-control" moments.

In case you missed it when I mentioned it in the old thread, I translated the official site's characters page here. The translated page has a pic of each character, with a little descripion of who they are, and tells who their seiyuu is. I added a little pic of each seiyuu for good measure.

This show is definitely playing in the seiyuu big leagues, with Hocchan, Mamo-chan, Jun-chan, et al. Mamo-chan just burst onto the scene with Light a couple of years ago, and now he seems to be near the top of the heap. But I also really like some of the other people here, such as Kitamura Eri (KitaEri) and Suwabe Junichi. And it's good to hear Hocchan still playing a young girl so well.

It's straight off the official site. There really is a Western name Luca, so maybe that was intended. Even though they are saying "Ruka." Anyway, I think the "L" seems exotic and interesting in Japanese.

I have the same problem figuring out whether in Macross F it should be "Ranka Ree" or "Lanka Lee" or "Ranka Lee" (as it is on ANN). The official site there doesn't have any romanization, and does the name in kana that make "Ranka Rii." Spelled Li or Lee, that's a Chinese surname.

It's striking how different photos can make seiyuus look quite different. Sometimes it has to do with how old the photo is, sometimes it just seems to be the angle or the expression.

And thanks to you both for finding the page useful.

Everyone thought it was Lanca Lee due to t-shirts worn at the Tokyo Anime Fair.. but than the proper ending sequence which started in episode 2 has a picture of Ranka with the words Ranka Lee next to it.

I think Mamoru Miyano is doing a stellar job as Zero, especially the scene at the end of episode 3; what awesome work!
