Why Do Some Voice Actors Like Not Knowing About Their Roles?

Jitendar asks: In interviews and commentaries on anime discs, I often hear English VAs state that they like to be surprised regarding their characters and the story, which would be good if most of your work involved turning up to a booth, reading the lines, and relying on the voice director to guide the performances […]

I went into Yama no Susume not expecting much but it has proven to be a pretty enjoyable show. To an extent, I learned a few things about mountain survival. Sadly though, not a lot of people are pleased with this show. It has an extremely mediocre rating on MAL and a lot of negative comments in decisions. I, for one, do not understand this.

I admit that Chihayafuru was a little hard to get used to at first due to the foreign card game “Karuta.” I soon fell in love with the show though! The animation is gorgeous, the Karuta games are extremely intense and the story is beautiful. This week we are featuring a beautiful screenshot of Chihaya Ayase, the main female protagonist, in episode 6 of the show.

Ever since the first episode, Hyouka has been my favorite TV Anime series of this Spring. The first part of the series ended last week and I really enjoyed the show. This week we are featuring Eru Chitanda, the female protagonist of the series. If you a big fan of Anime, you might be heard of Satomi Satou, the voice actress behind Eru and probably best known for her role as Ritsu Tainaka in K-ON!.

Finally, the first episode of all the series of the Fall season were aired. And one of the last, Guilty Crown, is probably the one that you should never miss. We had a wonderful time watching the first episode of the series, the animation is close to movie quality, the character design is cool, and the most impressive one to me, the music. The series starts with the OP performed by our female protagonist (well, we know supercell is actually singing the song), which instantly turn out to be the track that I most expect of the season.

All the Summer series are on the half way and we still have another month before the October. Quite like some of the series like Yuru Yuri and Natsume Yuujinchou. However, some of the series are quite difficult for me to decide whether it’s good or bad, like Blood-C.

Second month of the season, wonder how many TV Anime series did you guys drop. Me? Dozen of them. Most series stay in the grey area where you can either watch or not, it’s all depends on you. Of course, we have our recommendation here and you may want to check out if you like.

There are tons of sea and beach, as well as Bikinis in the latest episode of Hana-Saku Iroha. Also, this time, we can see how and what Yuina Wakura really is. It is surprised that she has a fiance and it is even more surprise that she dumps him at the end of the episode.
