Anime On DVD Community Forums: Otome Kiss ***UPDATE 2 (06/06/06)***
Japanese fans have mentioned that several voice actors from My-Otome / Mai-Otome have gone out to the gal game, Kimi Kiss, released in Japan on May 25, 2006.
Hoshino Yuumi CV: Koshimizu Ami = Nina Wang
Satonaka Narumi CV: Mizuhashi Kaori
Mizusawa Mao CV: Ikezawa Haruna
Sakino Asuka CV: Hirohashi Ryou
Futami Eriko CV: Tanaka Rie = Tomoe Marguerite, Fiar Grosse
Shijyo Mituki (Shijou Mitsuki) CV: Noto Mamiko = Yukino Chrysant
Nana CV: Nogawa Sakura = Shiho Huit
Kawada Tomoko CV: Kawasumi Ayako
Hiiragi Akira CV: Fukuyama Jun
According to Japanese fans at 2ch, Nakahara Mai, who plays Tokiha Mai, plays Kuryuu Megumi in Kimi Kiss.
Some Japanese fans have remarked that Futami Eriko resembles her voice actor, Tanaka Rie.
But it also looks like that the other main characters in Kimi Kiss may be, to one extent or another, modeled after their voice actors (e.g., hairstyle).
If 2ch's gal game board is any indication, the favorite character in Kimi Kiss among Japanese fans, by an overwhelming margin, appears to be Futami Eriko.
UPDATE 1 (05/30/06):
In this Kimi Kiss character popularity poll, Futami Eriko, voiced by Tanaka Rie, so far is the runaway winner at number one.
The popularity of Futami Eriko aka Eririn has apparently skyrocketed since the release of Kimi Kiss on May 25, 2006 in Japan. According to a number of Japanese fans, this is due to Eririn's voice and the voice acting of Tanaka Rie.
Responding to someone who would prefer a person in real life like Futami Eriko over the Futami Eriko in Kimi Kiss, a couple of Japanese fans on 2ch said...

Even if you think there exists a three dimensional [real life] person like Eririn, I think she cannot match the genuine [Kimi Kiss] Eririn.

Without that voice of Eririn [Tanaka Rie], it is not Eririn!!!!!

Yesterday, I finally saw the Eririn love route. I understand why everyone is devoted to her.
When watching the moment of her moe reaction, I died.
<laughing quietly> Yes, indeed, putting out and hearing Eririn's voice gives back something in return.
Also, the voice of Ms. Tanaka fits Eririn perfectly ... very lovely.

I finally realized that the voice of Futami Eriko's mother is the same voice as Tanaka Rie's.......
I did not notice it at all though I played it many times.
This person did the voices of Suigintou [in Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden ~träumend~] and Lacus Clyne [in Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED DESTINY]?
Incredible...... Tanaka Rie's skill in using different voices for different roles is too much.

Reason: More comments by Japanese fans on Tanaka Rie - range, versatility, etc.
