So , Let's pray they keep the same Seiyu from the Drama CD.
Or at least keep Takana Rie for Tsukiumi ^^

Shouldn't the genre also read, "bewbies"? Thought I should make that observation at least. Will be looking forward to it.

Tsukiumi > all, I really hope Tanaka Rie (her drama cd voice) stays as her voice.

Drama CD original character Narashino [Sekirei No.74], who talks in Kansai-ben (Kansai dialect) - among other things, she uses the honorific suffix "-han" instead of "-san" - is not listed as one of the choices in the poll.

Tsukiumi in the Sekirei drama CD reminds me of Suigintou in Rozen Maiden, Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome, and Isabella in Soukou no Strain. In addition to all of them being voiced by Tanaka Rie, they all intensely dislike the main heroine in the story - Suigintou hates Shinku, Tomoe hates Arika, Isabella hates Sara, and Tsukiumi (sorta) hates Musubi.

While Suigintou and Tomoe suppress their anger most of the time, Tsukiumi has an extremely short temper and often explodes in fits of rage, yelling and screaming in the unique trademark fashion of Tanaka Rie.

Unlike the evil, crazy, psychopathic villain Tomoe, or the sad, pitiful, one-time villain Suigintou, or the mean, nasty, spiteful bitch Isabella, however, the seemingly always angry Tsukiumi acts tough, but (as someone else elsewhere has noted) is really just an innocent girl wanting to be loved.

Last edited by Siegel Clyne : 2007-10-06 at 03:28. Reason: Added Asama Miya's appellation, "Ooya" ("Landlady"). While others refer to Miya as "Ooya-san," Tsukiumi, who speaks in an archaic manner, calls her "Ooya-dono."

According to an entry on MOON PHASE Miscellaneous Notes (MOON PHASE Zakki), Wednesday, December 20, 2007, Japan Time, the next series from YOUNG GANGAN seinen manga magazine, published by SQUARE ENIX, to be animated after Bamboo Blade appears to be a title with the "name of a bird" ("tori no namae").

The YOUNG GANGAN manga series with a "bird's name" is Sekirei.

"Sekirei" means wagtail in Japanese.

I think that, in all probability, the Sekirei anime cast will be more or less the same as the Sekirei drama CD cast listed above in my earlier post, with additional seiyuu for additional characters in the anime.

Ayako Kawasumi's voice fits the naive Musubi. Sayaka Ohara's fits the oneesama Miya Asama. Rie Tanaka's voice fits the tsundere Tsukiumi.

Rie Tanaka's short tempered Tsukiumi sounds like Suigintou and Tomoe Marguerite in constant angry road rage mode (minus the evil and the villainy). That alone should attract the many devoted, if not fanatical, Suigintou fanboys in Japan.

Because she and her voice have become so closely associated with Suigintou, a character she has made famous and popular, anime fans inside of Japan - and, for that matter, outside of Japan - often refer to Rie Tanaka as Suigintou or as Gin-sama, Suigintou's nickname.

Even though a new Rozen Maiden anime has not aired on Japanese television in well over a year and a third series or a third season of the popular Rozen Maiden television anime series has yet to be announced, as I have documented elsewhere on the Internet, Suigintou remains popular.

Radio personality Suigintou hosts a highly successful hit internet radio show in Japanese, Suigintou no Koyoi mo Ennu~i (Suigintou's It's Ennui Again, Tonight). The Suigintou no Koyoi mo Ennu~i Web Radio Vol. 4 CD, starring Rie Tanaka as Suigintou, goes on sale April 23, 2008 in Japan.

However...

Aniplex reportedly got the domain,

http://www.sekirei-tv.com/

Frontier Works produces the Sekirei drama CD.

Googling Aniplex and Frontier Works together, as far as I can tell, shows no connection between these two companies on any anime.

Because of that lack of connection, some Japanese fans believe that there will be wholesale changes in the cast from the Sekirei drama CD to the Sekirei anime.

On the other hand, Googling Aniplex and Seven Arcs (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series; Inukami! TV series and movie) together, as far as I can tell, shows no connection between these two companies on any anime prior to Sekirei.

In addition, YOUNG GANGAN official website's introduction page for the Sekirei manga lists the Sekirei television animation announcement next to and just above the Sekirei drama CD cast list.

So hope remains for the Sekirei drama CD cast being at least partly retained for the Sekirei anime.

We will see.

In any case, the Sekirei anime should do well in Japan with the fighting girls and the T & A a la Ikkitousen.

And, true to her background of creating BL/yaoi manga and doujin, Sakurako Gokurakuin's Sekirei also features the ultimate trap, a Sekirei who suffers from gender identity confusion and is either a male changing sex to female, a futanari (hermaphrodite), or whatever else you can think of.

You're right.

That could be a sign that Seven Arcs might retain at least part of the cast from the Sekirei drama CD for the Sekirei anime.

The official website for the Sekirei television anime series is now up.

Note: I added back the AnimeSuki links which are barred by policy at Anime News Network.

Hah! Alright~ Tsukiumi is No. 1! Tsundere characters are always popular.

Anyways in the anime... I pray that Minato's sister and her 'trap' Sekirei gets screentimes as minimal as possible. D:

This works as manga, because you are forgiving. And the fanservice and cute chars come at you at a rapid pace. Anime tend to drag shit out. You have to rely on the fights and plot(which this lacks o_O). Good comedy and good animation might save this though. =o

Seven Arcs should do a decent job with the fights, Nanoha A's had some nicely animated intense fight scenes in the first half. Also as shown with the Nanoha series any glaring animation errors should get fixed for the dvd release.

I just checked the anime website link up there... it seems like they've already uploaded the images.

But something bothers me. I might just be me being Captain Obvious but the art merely looks like colored manga pages. Or maybe it's just placeholder art until the actual anime trailer comes out...

*prays for good art and better ecchi for the anime*
