because its gender bending, everything changes

plus having a manly or even slightly manly voice, doesn't go with such a super cute lass

I just meant that there's nothing especially feminine about his personality, so why can't they just hire some third tier male VA for his male side?

maybe after hiring so many popular VAs that they realize they don't even have money to buy coffee, let alone a 3rd tier male VA

Because Marina Inoue is a versatile type CV,able to voice for both female and male characters,given that the male she's CV is a soft type male,like Natsuru.

But my point was that he's not a soft type male. He's not a manly macho man or anything either, he's just... average. Which makes him manlier than a girl.

You know, after listening to some of the atrocities they inflict on R1 dubs , I've never had a problem with the VA they choose for the originals.

I'm sure when it comes to manly comparison between men,Hayate from HnG is more manly than Natsuru...

But then Hayate is voiced by a female CV...

Well there are many example of male character have attitude or characteristics manlier than Natsuru but was CVed by a female seiyuu.

Hayate was girly enough to get dressed up as and fallen in love with as a girl... repeatedly. Hermione was his girl-name, iirc. He may have been badass, but he wasn't exactly manly, appearance-wise. Manliness has nothing to do with effectiveness or anything, it's just an image.

Anyway Natsuru's voice just feels really wrong on him.

Just go experience Paku Romi voice Ed in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Easily the best job at a female voicing a male.

Yu Kobayashi both voicing Kanon or Mariya Shidou also a good example on female VA voicing a male character...

look at this way:
we're all relatively sure natsuru will be in his female form much more often later on, so you won't have to experience his male voice that much.

though i do feel his male voice isn't the manly type... but i didn't have too much problem with it

If she wore it, some glass fragment may hurt her eyes, make her uneffective as combatant, or may be she use contact lens?

Anyway, tl;dr version:

o Reverse harem around a guy transforming into a girl-fighter

o Girls are hot and strong-willed (at the very least in their Kämpfer form)

o Main lead will have to unsuccessfully fend them off (lucky SOB)

o Lots of action, lots of comedy, and a remarkable lack of reason/common sense

o Do NOT expect "quality anime". You'll be terribly disappointed. Use "Bond movie" mode: Turn off brain and watch the fireworks

==> Guilty pleasure. With emphasis on pleasure.
add one more:
Main lead will harrased by her offender many times

Try Ken Ichijouji from Digimon 02 (that is old and requires digging), Shima from Clannad and Regene from G00.

Aw cmon guys, just admit the fact that you are all turned on when "tsun" Akane sits on a female Natsuru going "Nyaa~, please be gentle with me!", combined with the fact that Natsuru is actually male. Liking a She-Natsuru is perfectly okay because she is a female!
