First a wolfgirl, now a catgirl.
The cast for the Omamori Himari anime has finally been announced! About time too, I was wondering whatever happened to the anime since there was no news about it for quite a while.
Here is the cast list, names of seiyuus in bold:
Ami Koshimizu (Horo from Spice and Wolf, Kallen from Code Geass) – Noihara Himari
Daisuke Hirakawa (Makoto from School Days. Oh shit.) – Amakawa Yuuto
Asuka Okame – Lizlet
Iori Nomizu – Kuzaki Rinko
Kei Shindou (Wang Liu Mei in Gundam 00, Kuro Kagami in Kodomo no Jikan) – Shizuku
I can totally understand how Amisuke got the role, all she needed to do was a sexier and more alluring version of her Horo voice. I consider Horo one of my favourite Amisuke characters, and I look forward to her performance in OM.
But Daisuke Hirakawa? The Legendary Makoto from School Days?
I dunno. The man impressed me in Itazura na Kiss, using a deeper version of his voice that reminded me of Koyasu Takehito at times. But I will be damned if I am going to sit through 13 episodes of his whiny Makoto voice. Let us hope that is not the case.
Out of the remaining 3 seiyuus, Kei Shindou is perhaps the more outstanding one. I have totally no idea how they are going to pull off their respective roles, but I still have hope. It can’t be that bad, can it?
To think I was hoping for Ayako Kawasumi, Satoshi Hino, Yuko Gotou, Haruka Tomatsu and Yukari Tamura for the starting 5 characters. Feel free to guess who fits into which character, though the answers should be obvious.
And the Seiup post gets delayed thanks to this breaking news. Oh well.
This is Julius Firefocht, signing off.
