Astarotte no Omocha -- Characters/Seiyuus Pics and Info

I really didn't have high hopes for this show, but the art, the outstanding voices, and the sentimental emotion have made it more than just a lolimoe-fest. Although it's that, as well.

Click here or on the image to go to a characters/seiyuus page with pics of the characters and their seiyuus, and a bit of info about each seiyuu:


The cast is pretty amazing: almost all are top pros. The producers didn't go cheap here. Kugimiya Rie does what may be her finest tsundere loli yet. Tamura Yukari is vivid and exciting as the protagonist's loli daughter.

Many viewers think Satou Rina has too feminine a voice to play the father, but it suits the motherly father character perfectly. This show may have a lolimoe surface, but at heart it is a sentimental family comedy/drama.

The three leads are great, but the voice that impresses me most is Nabatame Hitomi. She just oozes professionalism and ability, hitting all the notes dead on. Horie Yui, Minaguchi Yuuko, Fujimura Ayumi, Matsuki Miyu, Hirohashi Ryou, Kaida Yuuko...the list goes on.

What an epic cast this is... it's basically a "who's who" of legendary female seiyuus.

And it was definitely worth whatever money the producers had to pay to enlist their services... it's like Simoun revisited. The ultimate fanservice. :-D
