Frankly I thought the voice he did for Oreki was excellent (and fairly distinct from Tomoya, oddly enough), but that's my opinion.
Fukuyama should really be using his shouta voice for this character, presuming he can still do it.

It's nothing against Nakamura or Fukuyama Jun - I like 'em both, and for me FukuJun's getting better and better (his work in Natsuyuki is the best serious role of his career, IMO). I'm just against the continued recycling of the same dozen or so actors for these kinds of roles when there are clearly plenty of good younger actors out there who excel when given the chance. You can go for an actual kid, like E7 and Hourou Musuko did (it's worth remembering that Irino Miyu got his first lead - D.N. Angel - when he was 14) or give a break to somebody in their 20s, like A-1 did with Ohsaka Ryouta in Tsuritama. New blood is good for the industry, and it shouldn't be limited to the girls because authenticity really does matter.

I love FukuJun - anyone who can do what he's been doing in Shirokuma Café and Natsuyuki Rendezvous at the same time is a helluva actor - but enough with the kiddie roles.
But Fukujun haven't use this kind of voice since I dunno.. n for me its sounds rather different than Takahashi from Working which why I found the voice is rather refreshing.

And I dunno why some of you feel the voice is too deep, since.. you know its obvious what they aim for casting him as ex Chuu2 role (and gonna into that again)

Make him use Luca's kind of voice would totally missing the point of this casting.

Just saw the short. Looks decidely non-threatening in the extreme, laid back and cutesy (especially the main girl that looks like she comes straight from the Yui Hirasawa school of female leads) with BGM that sounds like it's straight out of Lucky Star or K-On. The dynamic also seems to be the common one of slightly sarcastic and world-weary male lead tries to help eccentric girl deal with her mundane issues and problems that she'd never be able to resolve herself cause she's just too ditzy. It seems to exist in that type of setting that Kyoani loves creating where the gravest threat facing the cast is whether the female lead is going to be able to learn how to return a nicely aimed volleyball serve or not and again where everything is portrayed as super laid back, ultra-cute and non-threatening as possible.

People that like this sort of thing will absolutely eat this up I'm sure and absolutely adore and cherish it, but I foresee myself putting more time into checking out the various high concept and daring looking shows of the season. Yet again Kyoani puts out that just does not look like it'll be something that'll hold my interest, but I'm still willing to give the first couple episodes a chance to prove me wrong.

Replace Kyoani with Sunrise or Madhouse here and I might actually agree with you. For me though Kyoani tends to have a habit of portraying the seemingly mundane as exactly that and I typically end up losing interest extraordinarily fast. Again though I'm more than willing to give this one a chance to prove me wrong and plan to try to keep an open mind using what I've learned of what people like about their shows so far and trying to apply it to the mentality with which I approach it as best I can.

You're missing my point. I don't want FukuJun using a falsetto - I want a seiyuu who doesn't have to use a falsetto to sound like he's a teenager.

Except for Rikka firing WWII era pistols, which was most certainly a delusion, this was much more normal than I would've thought.
I'll take a look at the first episode and see how this develops.

The short bored the shit out of me, but it's a short clip anyway so I'll see what the show has in stall.

Yeah, in a way I see this character as his chance to "reply" back to Miyano's Okabe in a way... also if Jun and Miyano and the like had to stop voicing 16 year olds they wouldn't have much work left And if they stuck to voicing older characters you'll in effect push out the older vets who have cornered the market on those characters... less Jun, less Miyano, next to none Suwabe's and like and more Yuki Kaji's and other actors who aren't a scratch on Jun and Miyano.

Listening to the songs in her Nico account, ZAQ is pretty much the female Hyadain. She does all kinds of weird and wonderful voices.



And on another note, I'm very much looking forward to the actual OP and ED animation, especially the ED, since thats where Kyoani likes to get all 'edgy'.

Given that my younger brothers had a similar voice to FukuJun when they were starting high school..... I don't have quite the same disconnect as most of you seem to have. Maybe it's just me.

I saw the short and wow. I'm absolutely sold. It looks like as if someone added Haruhi, Lucky Star, Hyouka, and Nichijou in one show. XDD

Haruhi = official inspiration
Lucky Star = main heroine
Hyouka = graphics
Nichijou = some of the scenes look Nichijou-ish.

i think hyouka and Lucky Star is bit overreaching.

the main heroine have few similarity to Lucky star cast and the graphics is closer to Haruhi movie than Hyouka (well they made by same company so similarity is inevitable).

IMO is more like

Haruhi-(Esper+Time Travel+Alien+Reality Warper)+Nichijou's Drug=ChuniByo

I'll be watching this series, it looks good enough in my opinion.
BTW, Rikka seems to be a funny MC.

I think it just looks like... a show. To be honest, it doesn't remind me of any of the things mentioned (and I've seen most of those). That's one of several reasons I can't wait to see it.
