    Oh, I've heard my voice and I start crying after mere seconds of hearing it. Tenma's is as bad as mine. ^^;; I meant that I think I've heard her voice from some other dubbed anime, which is why I'm scared.

    I'll check the link later but from the reaction from everyone. I'm guessing the voices are horrible. I just pray that they have a very good script writer and that they don't make some changes in the story to make it kid-friendly. >_<

    maybe it was from a very good anime that you saw but it was destroyed by a horribly dub English voices. theres too many to list so I won't bother giving some examples. >.>

    I heard my voice before and all I can say is that I'm suited to dub middle-age old men. (which is ironic cause some people think I look like a teenager) =_=

    AH MY EARS WHY WONT THEY STOP RINGING....

    there's only one way to regain the honour lost to the english dub... commit Seppuku!!! :P lol (kidding)

    I can't really judge it until I see it with the actual scenes... It may or may not fit...

    The only Voice I think fits best is tenma, Followed by Eri and Mikoto... I was expecting Yakumo's voice to be more... I dunno (it's missing something for me)... anyone know a better VA for Yakumo???

    Karasuma... was really a put off for me.

    Harima's first Sentence was ok... but his 2nd will really depend I guess...

    dam, I just can't get my head around the American english voice cast. I prefer the Jap VAs.
    Let's see....

    >Harima: sounds more desperate than determined, not even Harima deserves to sound this much like a buffoon..
    >Mikoto: sounds alright, although a bit too much bimbo-ish (do all american chicks sound like this? or is her ample 'chest' a big influence?)
    >Eri: sounds so arrogant, spoilt, princess-ish, in fact perfect paris hilton wannabe.
    >Karasuma: ok, some one please remove that toad stuck down his throat.
    >Tenma: hehehe sounds ok, childish, like an ADHD sufferer should.
    >Yakumo: hmmmm, I think the producers were going with the idea of 'quietly stoned hippie' when choosing a voice artist. Alright so Imouto-san is supposed be a "quiet, reserved and cool personality that love animals" but this is taking it a bit far.

    Even after having watched many dubbed anime, I still hate the fact that the uncle sam english dubs still sound much more mature (read: older) that the native Jap version. Do Americans naturally sound more like adults at the age of highschoolers than the Japanese equivalent school level?

    yes... well thats what I wanna say but its not really like that. japanese people like small cute voices so most seiyuus nowadays are more focused on that than sexy and mature sounding voices. (Hayashibara I blame YOU!!!!).

    it could also be that Most Asian people tend to look younger and mature a lot slower compared to Western people. This is only based on my observations. >.>

    I think Mikoto's voice also has to do with her role... she's the close friend and sidekick of the heroines. So I think her voice fits. ^_^

    But Tenma's just sounds... fake. I mean, it's the KIND of voice she needs, but it sounds like the actress is straining to sound that hyper instead of actually being cute and distracted. (She needs Sailor Moon's first voice actress.)

    American VAs really should stick to American shows. Dubbed anime is like never any good, everyone sounds 20 years older. And everyone speaks with an American accent.

    -Tenma sounds like a kid on 100% caffeine who just inhaled helium
    -Eri sounds like a brat
    -Mikoto actually sounds ok
    -Harima's voice is fine, but the lines are shit
    -Karasuma sounds even older than the others, I can imagine a 50-something year old guy dubbing him
    -Yakumo sounds wrong, just don't know why

    And they should put in Akira's voice, Im dying to hear it.
    You make your face a mask. A mask to hide your face. A face to hide the pain. A pain that eats your heart. A heart nobody knows.

    I finally heard it and I didn't like most of them. Harima, he sounded like he came from Cromartie High. =_=

    All the voices sound weird...
    Harima voice sounds pretty stupid....
    Tenma voice sounds like an hyperactive girl....
    Mikoto voice sounds more like an mature woman than a schoolgirl....
    Eri voice sounds like an stupid blond girl....
    Yakumo voice just lack of her innocence....
    Karasuma sounds like a 30 year old guy....

    Good thing that it will be subbed.
