Although that's what probably will happen, that source doesn't seem reliable at all.

I also checked the official page...I just see Maria's voice...so Yukari being Bernkastel is still a rumor. Although it's most likekly what will happen.

Wow...most of the Higurashi cast is voicing some character xD

I am still thinking of Endo Aya -> Shannon and Sawashiro Miyuki -> Kanon
I just keep imagining the voice actor who voiced Yuki in fruits basket for him XD

That's who I've had in mind...both a weak-willed and strong-willed voice which I think would match Kanon's character progression throughout the story.

It is nowhere near possible. Nana has the knack in voicing gentle and composed women, or energic girls...
But it is nowhere near from Beatrice's character scope: that's like asking Wakamoto voicing Keiichi... it would be helluva wrong, both for the tone and the style.
She would be much more suited for Shannon though I still don't think she would perfectly fit any Umineko character

Since Noto was mentioned, am I deluding myself or she could be a good pick for Rosa?

And yes, Mizuki Nana is so not going to work as Beatrice.

Fujiwara Keiji could be a good choice for Ronove, I feel, he can combine the comic relief act with the more serious role ronove will most likely play later on.

Mizuki Nana can still surprise people at times. Remember Touma Minami?

Nana as Beatrice? I'm going against that. Beatrice's seiyu needs someone who has a real bite in their voice.

Matrim:
Noto as Rosa? Hard to say.

Fujiwara Keiji does sound good for Ronove. Looking back on his roles I thought he only did crazy stuff. But your are right he has done serious. I keep imagining Ken Narita, any thoughts on that?

Spoiler for very, very mild spoilers concerning Rosa's personality (I guess these are kind of inevitable when discussing possible seiyuu choices but just to be sure):

My problem for Noto with Rosa is the fact the voice would not match her physical appearance (well, Noto does have an issue with women that are between 30-50 so ^^").
Plus, due to episode 2 moments, she would need a sharp and grave voice instead. Let's see... how about Orikasa Fumiko (she did Chie in Higurashi): tweeking her voice a bit would manage to give a soothing voice, but also quite a dready one.

Meanwhile, I think Nakata George would be a killer for Krauss

I am not sure how much of this is mentioned in the game or it's just my imagination based on her picture in the game but I keep seeing Rosa as someone with a soft voice who can be mistaken for a younger person. I like Orikasa Fumiko but her normal (read cute) voice doesn't really sound much more fitting for older characters than Noto's. How about Yukino Satsuki (Shion/Mion seiyuu). She can do the nice voice, she can be very scary (I think we have all watched Higurashi) and has experience with older (read non-teen) sounding characters. And she excels at scenes where her character scolds someone and Rosa does that a lot.
Noto Mamiko or Orikasa Fumiko could be good choices for Kyrie, btw.

How about Imoue Kikuko as Virgilia?

You seem to be joking but just in case - I think Krauss is too much of a loser to merit the almighty Nakata George. One would start to wonder how come the other characters dare accuse him of anything.
Sugita Tomokazu could be a great George if he voices it the way he voices Mayama in Honey and Clover who, IMO, is very similar to George in terms of personality.

Orikasa as Kyrie? I don't know. I also think that Satsuki wouldn't quite suit Rosa. I think Orikasa would be a very good Rosa, her voice isn't really ridiculously cute... I mean, Chie's wasn't like that anyway...

My biggest problem with Noto is actually how her voice has a lingering tone that either gives the following vibes: moe/slow/retarded/prone to give a question mark on the said character.
Vaguely enough, it gives too much "innocence" (even in her performance as Rin in Mnemosyne), hence why I feel her absolutely not fitting for any kind of character past the twenties without some kind of VERY sweet aspect.
You can say, it is pretty similar to Horie persistent "cutie fluff" in her voice, even if she uses different tones (like Naru from LH or Eri from SR)

Yukino would somehow cut it, though ironically, her normal voice lacks of some sweet and "close" aspect, when she doesn't voice an highschooler (we are jumping from the extremes ). She would obviously work well with serious aspect though.

But as for Kyrie, I think a totally different Seiyuu would be needed, such like Honda Takako (Touko from Kara no Kyoukai).

half joke actually
To be honest, I think a voice similar to Nakata-sama (or himself but watered down) would be fitting, minus Nakata's usual imposing/charismatic aura. That's why it is overkill to begin with, but as a gut feeling, the "tone" and the "depth" of the voice should be kinda similar, but the aura is obviously not matching. (well, Nakata CAN sound very very funny, like corporal giroro or Neko chaos )

Now the biggest challenge would be... a proud, yet mature and reponsible voice for Natsuhi.

Well that's not really to be the case with her voice in say Planetes or Madlax, IMO. And Rosa is not that close to the rest of the characters as say Mion is to the gang in Higurashi anyway.

I can't say I agree I entirely as Noto's famously cute voice has never bothered me unlike pretty all the other over the top cute voices in the anime industry but I definitely see where you are coming from. If I "turn the chessboard", I can see that I would be against Horie Yui as Rosa if someone proposed it for exactly the reasons quoted above.

A real veteran seiyuu would be great for that part, I believe. Personally I would prefer Mistuishi Kotono or Hisakawa Aya but I do realise I am very biased towards these two so...

Agreed, I also picture Kraus's voice as somewhat similar to Nakata's, albeit very much lacking in charisma.

LOL Krauss isn't awesome enough to get Jouji's voice? I can see what you mean. I also see what you mean on the charisma part.

And YES. Rosa definitely needs a soft voice.

Orikasa Fumiko should be involved. Kyrie or Eva I think would work best.

The closest I've gotten is Romi Paku (but I've only heard her voice once)

Also it's interesting you bring up Touko's seiyu. Today i was imagining her as Beatrice's seiyu.

Time to think about the Stakes....How about Mizuhara Kaoru (with her Yomi voice) as Lucifer!
