Eva is one of those characters you love to hate really.

The only one that I can't really agree is George. Listening to his voice and thinking of how he looks in the game...

But it's actually a good match for the anime design.

I like the voices of the adults.

Now we need Shannon, Kanon, Kinzo, Kyrie, Natsuhi, Nanjo, Kumasawa, Gohda, and Genji...
I'm REALLY curious about what Shannon, Natsuhi, Kanon, and Kyrie sound like...

George sounds too much like Mikiya from KnK.
It's going to take some time for me to get used to how they pronounce Beatrice

Love all the voices so far, but I've seen some episodes of Ouran High School Host Club soooo many times that I can't get Hikaru out of my head when I hear George XD

That said, I'm trying to figure as much as I can.

Considering it is 2:30AM right now, I don't think I will last that long, but I will certainly put the whole translation with Chrono's help (timezone doesn't help heh...)
Ahh that's perfectly fine, I just needed at least enough to let me know who's speaking, so thank you for that. Now that I know who's who, I can edit my post. :3

Same here, in fact... I may never get used to it. ._.

My favourites would have to be Jessica, Eva and George though. Jessica sounds great, Eva sounds as I hoped she would (Takano-but-not-as-droopy), and George sounds exactly like I've always imaged.

I can't wait to hear Kyrie's voice. And Genji's too.

Oh, and... can't unhear Karen when Rosa speaks.
Same thoughts... well, except for liking all of the voices so far but Maria (I don't like Maria's voice that much... but I also don't like a couple of others. )
When I first heard a few of Koshimizu's roles, I couldn't think of any that would fit Rosa. The closest was Kallen and her voice just seemed all wrong to me.

Hopefully Kyrie's voice won't disappoint... and I'm sure Genji will sound just fine. :3

I have a feeling George IS Shiki Tohno/Mikiya Kokuto. Their art may be a little different but when I heard George's voice, Shiki Tohno was the first guy I associated it with. (Yeah, not Shinn Asuka, my bad XD)

It could be the same case as Chie from Higurashi.

I really like Jessica's voice, Marina should do a stellar job throughout. Battler sounds good, George is fitting imo but Maria came off really weird though... Eva and Kraus were good for the adults, going to have to get use to Rudolf and Hideyoshi.. though the laters voice seems to fit. Rosa was one of the major ones I was iffy on before hand... skill as a seiyuu isn't an issue...

Can't wait to here the rest, especially Ohara's Beatrice.

Same thing I was thinking right away. I even looked up wikipedia for confirmation it wasn't the same VA.

Characters look good to me. Jessica sounds the same as Alicia in Valkyria Chronicles... just not as 'tsundere'. Maria reminds me of Minorin with her ''omg randum xD'' attitude. I certainly hope Maria won't be like that. Cute & Creepy is good enough.

I can see myself adopt to the rest of the crew, since I never played the games.

I'm amused that Krauss' seiyuu is the same that did Kujo Jotaro. Do we get manly Krauss now?

I am so going to hate anime Maria. And Rosa sounds like a 15 year old, not a mother of nine year old kid. Eva is way over the top here, it worked for Takano but I think way over the top fit Takano much more than it should fit Eva. Eva is more about implied malice and sense of superiority. Krauss sounds more confident that I had pictured him, I don't know, I wanted him to sound like a mediocre crook who doesn't bluff too well. Maybe it's just that the drama CDs are extra-theatrical and anime seiyuu perfomances are more subdued-acting wise?
Battler sounds a bit too mature for 18 years (and you know, for Battler, the funny guy) but I like it. I like Jessica's voice too. George sounds like a geek. SO I like the cousins voices more than the parents.

Ah Kallen's voice ; the problem is Kallen was a teenager while Rosa is past her thirties

She sounded like the timid Kallen though. I'm still thinking that she'll sound very close to her rage mode.

Eva sounds great. Nice and condescending. Maria has a very cute voice, but it seems alittle out of place. Rosa sounds young, I'm wondering how well it'll go. Still waiting on Kyrie and the servants XD. Yes, George = Mikiya!

Honestly though, George's voice might be odd with his character design, well maybe not, we'll see. Hideyoshi makes me giggle, he sounds very jolly.

I am okay with most of the voices. Eva and Jessica are PERFECT, Rosa, George and Krauss are definitely different from what I expected, but I still like them. I don't think Battler's voice fits his character design, but he has a very nice voice nonetheless.
I am pleased.

I imagine Rosa's voice will be different when she's in a position of control. The scene given would imply she's being submissive as the youngest of the family in order to still get at least some of the gold, if there is any. Later on she might be more interesting when it is just her with the kids.

From those samples, i believe i am left less impressed than i could have been overall, at least for now. Jessica and Maria are probably the ones i find most fitting and have little complaints there, and Kraus sounds slightly odd (though can't put my finger on it exactly), but i believe largely fitting as well. Eva is a bit overdone, as pointed out above, as she shouldn't be so "in-your-face" and more subtle, but a fine choice in the end. Now Rosa though - that is a voice i can not stomach; I realize she is supposed to be young looking, but come now - she sounds like a high-schooler, not someone who is a mother to a nine year old girl herself. My biggest gripe though goes with Battler himself - the voice sounds a bit too deep, especially coupled with his new and shoutafied design that makes him look like a snobby brat. I can't seem to connect his looks and that voice at all, so i don't know. Well, might be a bit early to cry foul and cast judgment before it has actually aired, and i am more than willing to give the seiyuu a chance, and seeing the characters along with the voices will likely go a long way, but i must admit to the initial premises having left me somewhat weary whether some of the choices have been the best in order to convey these specific characters.
