Wow you really like your mecha animes there.

I fail at them, from all the mecha animes that I start watching, I only end up finishing around 25-30% of them, the rest are dropped after the first couple episodes.

Well, the mecha spirit is developed since childhood. Its hard for an adult to understand and take mecha anime seriously. But for those like me who grew up on mecha, we see mecha really differently from others.

Voice actors really have to put their burning souls into yelling a line, its because they do so that they sound awesome and inspiring.

Western VAs usually can't bring out the hotbloodedness like Japanese seiyuus because partly they don't have that sort of 'mecha soul' in them and also the English language is not appropriate to shouting stuff like that.

The mecha genre is as hard to understand as moe is to westerners. Most of the time westerners can only get either moe or mecha initially. After being an otaku for a really good amount of time can they start appreciating the other one, or never.

We Asians here, grow up being brought up by both mecha and moe.

I personally would take silky-voiced gents over hot blood. The Saiyuki quartet are among my faves of all time. Especially Ishida Akira.

Nobita Tobuo's run as Akabane and the Major: Now, those two are on my all time bad-ass characters list.

Well, you should know that hotbloodedness also comes in silent packages. Instead of letting out the anger my letting out a yell from the soul, it can also be displayed by holding the soul in and letting the anger flow through just actions.

People sometimes confuse hotbloodedness with angst, they're entirely different.

I don't know if you are talking generally or including me in your comment, but mind you that some of my first animes before I even knew what anime were Mazinger Z, Macross, Voltron and some others, they were all the rage thanks to the very first Transformers in Latin America.

So many mecha animes were brought at the time, that finding something else than mechas to watch like He-Man, Thundercats, Marco or Heidi was harder

Its a replied to you and general as well.

Mecha anime didn't stay in the west very well though. And the western VAs can't pull off mecha as well as Japanese seiyuu did, because of how the languages work and how they're expressed.

Hmmm if we split the west into English and Latin, then I may actually think that mecha actually caught on in Latin America better than the English west lol

I've heard of quite a few Mazinger, Voltes V fans and such from watching Latin dubs when they're young, but I've never heard of English dub old school mecha fans.

All successful male seiyuus must take up a successful mecha lead, especially a super robot male lead. Once they've shown their hotbloodedness, their popularity will skyrocket.
Lol I forgot about Lumiere!

Lumiere doesn't really seem to rub off as much as Haruhi for me. Besides I am on-off on Kiddy grade because I am not as hardcore on anime at that time as I am now as I am still leaning towards computer games at that time.

Most mecha anime don't catch on for me, other than Gundam, Macross, and a certain few old super-robots aired on CH8 early in the morning. I would say Digimon rubbed off me more than mecha, but it apparently went on decline after Tamers (though I must admit, the Taiwanese VAs suck).

Unless you count Astroboy or/and Megaman as mecha, the abovementioned are the only mecha I watched during my younger days (Zeta and 08th MS Team stuck to my head). I can increase the count by chucking Doraemon in.

Some mecha works in the West...some doesn't.

It seems to be that Americans don't want shows about people piloting mecha..they want sentient robots.

For some illogical reasons, yes.

I have to say that Nakata Jouji's run as Alucard hit something in me. The way he voiced THAT vampire as he demolishes those who stand in his way convinced me that sometimes, you don't have to do too much to render a person ineffective. Either break his hope, or make him irrelevant.

Haruna Ikezawa nearly got assaulted by a stalker at night:

I'd personally hand her over a heavily-reinforced kendo stick with a shock prod.

I predict "Tomatsu Haruka" would be great seiyuu in future. She is still young,cute and has unique voice.

Which leaves me wondering how they could handle nutters, considering that they hardly have the budget necessary for security detail (and in the one of the world's most expensive places, very costly).

So it boils down to some self-defense, cooperation with law-enforcement authorities, personal security measures (especially when using the Internet for blogging and email), and so on.

Given the wrath Ikezawa had on her personal page, I'd say she might as well be paving the way on how seiyuu should deal with such nuisances.

Voice actors, i always wanted to know this.

There are many anime titles having the same voice actors, yet their voices sometimes sound very different.
Is it made by actors themselves or they use filters to modify the voices?

One good example is Inoue Kikuko, she performs Belldandy (a soft calm voice) and also Miria from claymore and the voices couldn't be more different ^^
Also the voice actor for Teresa (female voice actor) uses to perform male roles... hehe

Well, like actors, seiyu do try not to be pigeonholed into character stereotypes. In your examples, Inoue-san wasn't known as "Ane-san" or "elder sister" for nothing.

Pak Romi's boy voices, on the other hand, sound alike. Edward = Toushiro = That brat from Shamn King =... You get the idea.

Yes, voice actors really do change the way they speak depending on the type of characters they play, in the grand tradition of Mel Blanc.
