It's mostly the series composer. Directors tend to be responsible for higher level decisions (and it's their job to approve the the submitted work), but the actual execution is up to the series composer.

For instance, a director usually speaks with the series composer and original author/publisher about the arcs to include and the style to follow. However, the latter is responsible for drafting the series outline and episode breakdown (which are then sent off to any other writers assigned to a show).

What I'd do for Yasu would be:

A) You see everything from her visual POV, and see words when she speaks, but other characters are voiced.

B) Again, her POV, with the voice of Beatrice, Claire, or Lion.. or something like that.

I'd love for Yasu to just be shown though.
We'd probably get Claire's voice, since she's narrating Yasu's character like an actor...and Clair would probably have Beato's voice.

So basically Yasu will probably sound like Moetrice.

Wouldn't Yasu just look like Lion? I mean they ARE the same person.

Just Lion in a maid outfit with the same seiyuu would make sense to me.
Bern says that this isn't what Lion actually looks like, and that she just gave him/her a "placeholder image" to keep Yasu's true form a mystery. We know for a fact that Yasu doesn't have blonde hair, since s/he specifically gives her imaginary Beatrice personality that color hair for Battler.

Maybe Yasu could have Lion's voice but physically possess a blend of Shannon, Kanon, and Beatrice's physical features.

In the anime Shannon, Kanon, and Beatrice all have blue eyes. So it'd really just depend on what they wanna go with for the hair color and style.

I highly doubt it. I don't see us going nearly an entire arc without Sayaka's trademark voice, and Clair/Yasu are pretty much synonymous. The alternative is to think that Shannon's love causes Beatrice's voice to change, even though Clair/Yasu takes the classic cackle and manner of speech from Gaap in the first world modification.

And they're no way Lion would get Beato's voice. Aside from being highly inappropriate, it'd spoil the twist of Lion's nature.

Lion would probably get a female voice actress anyway.

Maybe Yasu and Clair could be played by Sayaka Ohara, but Lion could have an entirely original voice. I know Lion is Yasu, but since Yasu's appearance is a placeholder for what Yasu may have looked like, which is said to be different from the way Lion looks, they could use a "placeholder" voice as well. Then again, since Yasu's voice is heard, to make Lion's voice different would make it harder for viewers to grasp the connection between the characters without it being stated outright. That or Ohara could play Lion as well and make the voices of each character she'd play distinguishable.

But as long as we're speculating voices should Lion's voice be different, and as I stated before, when I think of androgyny in anime, the first person I think of is Maaya Sakamoto. She played Crona (a character of intentionally ambiguous gender) in Soul Eater, and Hikaru (a girl convincingly disguised as a boy) in Ouran High School Host Club.

The VA should be the same, it'd make sense, but as it has been said, it'd spoil Lion's identity and her relation to Beato. Well, we've already had shared VA's before in Umineko, though. So, as long as Ohara doesn't use the exact same voice while voicing Lion, it'd be possible to pull it off.

Everybody brings up the low sales of the DVDs after the first couple, but how much of that is due to the Great Recession? What are the comparisons with currently released series? The current season has an anime inspired by a pachinko game, so I wouldn't be surprised if there was some anime version of Chiru.

If it still didn't work for a full cour, maybe the way to go is what was suggested before: have Ryuu07 extract the main themes in a shorter form, like the Rebuild of Evangelion or The French Lieutenant's Woman.

Well, Will DOES say outright that they're the same person before Clair does her thing. Lion should not get Ohara's voice. S/He just shouldn't. If Lion gets any reused voice, it should be Shannon's or Kanon's or something.

Rebuild of Evangelion is not something to compare this too; it's not really an extraction of the original's themes at all, since the production team is changing themes and plot elements and basically constructing a new plot with a different aesop at the end.

Yasu has a "body deformity", caused by that accident that Natsuhi provoked right?
I don't know what kind of deformity it is, but if it is something very noticeable physically she shouldn't look exactly like Lion, even being the same person.

Why does Zepar have Mitsuki Saiga listed as a voice actor and Furfur as Eri Sendai?

They appear in the video game Ougon Musou Kyoku as announcers. Those are their official voices chosen by 07th Expansion, since all the other characters that appear in the game are voiced by their official voice actors as well.

This makes them the only Chiru characters to date who have official seiyuu. Word has it that 07th Expansion already has someone in mind to play Erika, but who it is is currently under wraps until the need for her to be voiced arises. This was in an interview regarding the possibility of a sequel to the PS3 port Majo to Suiri no Rondo.

(And before you hear anything about there not being plans to port Chiru, they mean they have no plans to port it to any console other than the PS3, or to release a full edition version of Umineko containing all eight episodes).

I think It's because they appeared in the figthing game,Ogon Musou Kyoku and were voiced by them. :')

So, just for the heck of it:

Umineko Chiru character seiyuu speculations. What are yours?

Below are mine.

Spoiler for Seiyuu wish list:

Miyano Mamoru as Will and Sakamoto Maaya as Lion will make me laugh so hard.

(even more so because they'd actually fit.)

To be honest, Miyano would be my second choice.

Haha. That makes it even better.

Isn't Soichiro the voice actor for Keiichi?

Maaya's a bit too obviously feminine to be Lion, I think. Megumi Ogata, and others like her, would be better.

Maaya's voiced Kanonlike boys before that have a more masculine voice that what I expect for Lion. She'll probably do it pretty well.
