Requiem for the Phantom -- Characters and Seiyuus, with pics

Here is a characters and seiyuus page for Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom.

This and Eden of the East are my favorite shows of the spring season. With Pandora Hearts not far behind. Phantom gives us a strong story with interesting characters, a lot of forward motion, effective background music, and some elegant violence.



Irino Miyu is the youngest seiyuu on board here, and is doing a bang-up job with Zwei. Takagaki Ayahi, who is not much older, continues to prove her ability, as Ein. I still find the great Sawashiro Miyuki's take on Cal disturbing. I hope that's intentional. Hisakawa Aya is making Claudia the sexiest person in the show.

Definitely agree with Phantom and Eden. For me, the two best shows of the spring easily. Phantom, in particular, has amazed me in that I haven't experienced a bad episode so far.

Loved Ayahi in true tears (best anime of 2008 IMO) and really enjoying her as Ein in Phantom. And Miyu and Aya really play Zwei and Claudia well.

Phantom wins the "most underrated show" award. It's sad that such an awesome anime gets so little recognition.

Yeah, to choose Sawashiro Miyuki as Cal's voice is kind of strange to say the least. Oh wait, I don't even like Sawashiro's voice to begin with.

Kinda sad, lol, I downloaded a couple of subbed ep's of Requiem for the Phantom (TV), hadn't watched them yet, and then magically got a DMCA complaint in the mail from my ISP =X But we won't go there... (shouldve just watched the raws...)

Did you watch the original OVA? Is it really that much better?

For me this was a very good one, nice plot and action.

It is a great show, I only watched like three times, but that was enough to realize that it is a good production, the graphics are amazing and the plot is even better.
