I heard Masako Ikeda not that long ago as the Chimera Ant Queen in Hunter x Hunter, so as I heard Sharon’s voice in Space Brothers, I was like, man who IS that?

She’s got a great elegant sounding voice, so it was REALLY WEIRD hearing it out of the scariest looking thing in the world.

Mayumi Tanaka, the voice of Luffy from One Piece, plays the mom in Space Brothers, and I’m glad.  It’s crazy how she can adjust her voice ever so slightly and wham, old lady instead of young kid.

I’ve been watching Hajime no Ippo for a very long time, and i never realized that Shinoda was voiced by Seiji Sasaki, who I know primarily as SIG CURTIS from Fullmetal Alchemist.  Shinoda’s voice isn’t nearly as gravelly or deep, so I didn’t notice.  It’s interesting to hear Seiji Sasaki do a different type of voice.

Here’s another I didn’t catch at all.  Miki Nagasawa plays both WIcca from One Piece and Judy from Cowboy Bebop.

Man, I’ve been watching Hajime no Ippo for years, but I never realized that Tomiko and Izumi Curtis were voiced by the same actress.  I would love to hear Shoko Tsuda in more shows though.

I did not recognize that Welfin from Hunter x Hunter was the same seiyuu as Dayakka from Gurren Lagann at ALL.  I think this might be the first time I’ve heard Daiki Nakamura outside of Gurren Lagann, actually.

Matching Seiyuu: Maison Ikkoku and One Piece (this is a thing I’ll be doing till I get bored of it or whatever)

Hideyuki Tanaka as Soichiro Otonashi/Donquixote Doflamingo

Hiromi Tsuru as Asuna Kujo/Shakky

Shigeru Chiba as Yotsuya/Buggy

Toshio Furukawa as Sakamoto/Portgas D. Ace

It’s weird hearing Hidenobu Kiuchi do a REALLY gruff and tough voice.  Most characters I know him as are a lot more soft-spoken like Dr. Tenma from Monster, Hei from Darker than Black, and Ren from Nana.  I appreciate that he’s getting the chance to play a much different character from the typical voice he does.

Ichiro Nagai (the voice of Monster’s Dr. Reichwein) has passed away

I knew him primarily as Dr. Reichwein from Monster, but man, he had such a wonderful, jolly voice.  There was this great warmth to his voice that can’t be replaced.

I’m glad he’s Netero in the new Hunter x Hunter reboot (which I’m watching) so I can admire one last role of his.
