Hmm, lots of interesting posts here since I last visited. But it's nearly 3am in my part of the world, so for now I'd just like to say that I've created a stub English-language Wikipedia article for Simoun. It could use better layout and lots more information, but at least there's now something to edit. I've copied the translated glossary from Kaoru Chujo's blog and included a link to Yui's page - I hope neither of you mind.

One glaring omission is a translation for the OP title - can anyone here help?

Oh, and something I hadn't noticed until I was adding cast details is that Kuwashima Hōko is listed in the credits! I now consider this anime officially godlike

I didn't know her by name, either -- I'm not a big Inu-Yasha fan, I've only played the North American versions of the Metal Gear Solid games, and I've never seen any of the other titles that she's worked on.

Character roll call

I can match names with faces for the following characters:

Aaeru: odango atama
Neville: blow up sex doll meets Top Gun
Paraietta: bifauxnen
Kaimu: meganeko who flies with Paraietta (and is clearly carrying a torch for her)
Floe: Kansai-ben ditz
Limone: kawaii little tyke
Morinas: replacement pilot #3
Wapourif: onee-nii-sama with a wrench
Erif: recent retiree from Corps Tempest
Amuria: "motto tsuyoku!" R.I.P.

I'm missing names for:

* The Captain (of Arcus Prima -- episode 1's fansub gives his name as "Lucas", but is that really right?)
* The captain's assistant, who leads the briefings for Corps Tempest and is standing to the left with the captain in the opening credits
* The girl with the long braids who everyone addresses as "Ojou-sama" (is she related to royalty?), who flew as Erii's sagitta in the opening battle
* The scowling dark-haired girl who appears in the opening credits right after "Ojou-sama", and flies as Floe's sagitta in the first battle
* The VIP man in episode 1
* The important-looking woman in the red dress and hat in episode 1
* The High Priestess at the spring
* The dark-haired girl with red lipstick who is last to appear in the opening credits

And I've seen the following names, but I don't know who they are:

Guragief
Anubituf
Rodoraemon
Dominura
Mamiina
Onashia
Aruti

Can anyone help?

Arutei (or Alti) or however you want to spell it. I think she is also Kaimu's sister. Although I think the one who appears in the openining credits after Rodoraemon is not really her, I am referring to this girl.

As for the others, I don't see them on the official site, so your guess is as good as mine.

I just added her to the hashihime seiyuu gallery -- picture, links, and a bit of history. As a comparative newbie (two years watching anime) I only recently learned how good she was myself.

EDIT: She's wonderful as the star of the fine new josei historical fantasy Saiunkoku Monogatari.

Kuwashima Houko is awesome. She has a great range and has played all sorts of characters.

I have first found her through Noir (I think it was 4 or 5 years ago) and have liked her ever since. I can't say she is my favourite seiyuu, but she definitely brings character to heroines that she plays.

She isn't easily recognizable too, because he can play both soft-spoken girls (Hattie from Argento Soma, Kirika from Noir, Quon from RahXephon), spunky characters (Flay from Gundam, Satsuki from X) and bad-ass mature ladies (like Natarle from Gundam SEED, Kristeva from Ergoproxy.

Unlike a lot of popular seiyuus, she doesn't sounds like herself, but always creates a special vocal modulation that fits a particular heroine. That's why she is so always "in character" when playing a role.

Truly a professional VA. I think only Mitsuishi Kotono and Hayashibara had an opportunity to play as many different characters and pulled it off every time.

What MrProphet said. I was actually quite stunned when I found out that Kirika from Noir and Natarle from Gundam SEED were voiced by the same person.

Oh, you're right -- the similarities in forehead shape and the fact that Alti has a determined expression on her face in the first battle had me confused. But dark blue hair and bangs does not equal mousy brown hair and a part. :-) (That's her appearing with Floe in the credits, I presume?)

And speaking of Floe and Alti, which was flying which position? In the takeoff scene, Floe is clearly sitting in the Auriga seat, but it looks like she's in the Sagitta position when the battle starts....

That's great! Thanks for passing it along. Was that off the simoun.tv site?

By process of elimination, Guragief and Anubituf (the only two -f names) are probably the captain and the Corps Tempest briefing officer. Does anyone recognize Hōko Kuwashima's voice in either character?

That's old school. Mostly 70's and 80's. She had some awesome roles, like Nausicaa (my favourite female character in anime) and Kyoko from MI, but I don't know much about her other roles, so I can't comment on her ability to voice different characters.

I'm thinking specifically of St. Juste from Oniisama E, who was about as far from Nausicaa in voice and temperament as you can get. Rather like Kotono Mitsuishi doing both Usagi Tsukino and Juri Arisugawa....
