I can see where you are trying to go with this but they'll probably go with a younger seiyu.

i guess people never learn.

On topic: i hope this turns out better than Katanagatari and Bakemonogatari, two shows that really didn't work out for me.

Megumi has voiced a 7-year old on Detective Conan for a long time, and a teenage Lina Inverse in Slayers for a long time. I think she can pull off "young" quite well. It's just a matter of whether her voice is what they want or not.

Well, it's the prequel to Bakemono, so if you didn't like that, odds are you won't like this.

This 7-year old is Ai Haibara.

agreed, I'd still like to see her due the role since I think she could pull it off fine, she can do a good range of voices.

Hirano Aya's voice doesn't fit Kiss-shot. That was debated for many times, and that's also the conclusion I made. She might have some versatility, but her acting on anything out of genki girl has been criticised severely.

You know, no one would hate Aya Hirano that much if she didn't make herself into such a media target.

Seriously, none of you would be saying things like 'she doesn't fit Kiss-shot', which isn't true in the first place.

No. Even excluding all those whatever hell twitter crisis that Hirano and obsessive otakus are pulling off, I still say she doesn't fit Kiss-shot's portrayal that I believe in. There are a lot of better choices out there.

Of course, I never said she is a bad seiyuu. No-one can top Omigawa Chiaki for that place anyway.

To be fair, her character count hasn't even reached double digit yet since her debut in 2008 with Soul Eater. I'd say she's just inexperienced at the moment and still developing as a seiyu.

I happen to trust whoever is responsible for the voice casting at Shaft.

Do you even know what Kiss-shots character is like? There's a reason people say she doesn't fit the role and it has nothing to do with her being an overrated seiyuu (and this is coming from someone who thinks her Haruhi is a tour de force performance) turned into a desperate small time media whore.

Until she proves otherwise she doesn't fit this character.

The problem is, she is not developing. I always tried to find something positive about her, but the single thing I could find was that she can only voice classic ditz/pure type character. She doesn't do that well either anyway, due to her over-dramatised voice control.

and her normal voice is much better. I wonder why she always do that same annoying voice instead of fine one. Well, that's seiyuu business.

She never was a cast from the start. Drama CD casting =/= Anime casting.

I'm pretty certain they list her in the credits... she does make SOME noise, as I recall.

^ Hirano Aya never even listed in the cast roll in official website. Even character of Shinbo was not even mentioned.

Though, it's true that it is much likely that Hirano will be casted for the role.

Seems like Aya is being questioned about whether she can fit Kissshot's shoes. Personally I can't really imagine her as the character, but if she does get the boot who will replace her? One thing to keep in mind is that the actress needs to have extreme range since Kissshot travels between like 6 different ages during the series.
Yoko Hikasa !!!

Anyway, Aya Hiirano just appeared as drama CD Seiyuu rite?
Well, they can just write her as drama CD seiyuu...

Japanese otaku are... yeah. Their angel isn't an angel so they have to trash her. It's sad really.

I didn't think she fit the part, but I hope she keeps it just to stick it to those otaku.

Aya Hirano always gets heavily criticized because of how much publicity she gets. It's like people here hating on Johnny Young Bosch because he gets cast for so many roles.

That said, I also can't imagine Aya's vocal range fitting all of Kiss-shot's various ages. Maybe loli Kiss-shot/Shinobu is fine, but not the fully grown and developed woman.

Hirano is mainly criticized because of her self-publicity. It has less to do with number of roles - sure, you attract a good number of fans and haters by your performances, but the same goes for any star in this business. By sticking to your work and minimizing the self-promoting antics (scandalous and/or attention seeking tweets and blog posts, etc.), you avoid "rocking the boat".

Self publicity is a double edged sword. You attract a lot of attention, but also quite a bit of negativity (especially in Japanese society, where this is still discouraged). In either case, you manage to stay in the headlines, which is why people like Hirano keep doing it. They may whine when the "fans" point daggers at them, but at the end of the day, they wouldn't have it any other way. Once the situation cools, they go forward with the next attention grabbing tactic.

You could say the same about a multitude of western stars, particularly of the "bad boy" or "bad girl" variety.

Another anime example might be the director Yutaka Yamamoto. He attracts both positive and negative attention via self publicity/drama and would not be anywhere as visible otherwise (directorial portfolio is too small).
