OreShura -- Characters/Seiyuus Pics/Info

It's called OreShura for short, but the full title of this show is Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru: "There's too much carnage between my girlfriend and my childhood friend."

It was one of the most anticipated shows of the season, and started with a bang, but it fell off for a few episodes and has only recently become one of my favorites of the season.

The coolest thing about the seiyuus is the presence of Tamura Yukari (now age 36) as a romantic heroine in the midst of a cast all of whom are at least ten years younger: Ousaka Ryouta (26), Akasaki Chinatsu (25), Kanemoto Hisako (24), Kayano Ai (25), Taneda Risa (24), Touyama Nao (20).

Another cool thing is that Taneda Risa -- young Saki in Shinsekai yori -- is playing a teenage boy here. It's also cool to hear Kayano Ai as a full-on tsundere; and Touyama Nao as a nasty character.

And this is the next big role for Akasaki Chinatsu, who was so outstanding as Nibutani Shinka in Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai. There is a character here with chuunibyou, but she is played by Kanemoto Hisako (Squid Girl), who just gets better and better.

Extra kudos to Kayanon for her performance in OreShura 7. That was nothing short of amazing :)

I thought Kayano Ai did well enough, but I think the character of Fuyuumi is pretty terrible. Indeed, the whole show is losing me the farther away from Masuzu it gets. I hope the show gets better, but I think it's got too many characters to deal with, and not really a good way to deal with them. And Eita's a pretty terrible lead character, imo.

Yukarin's only 17!!! All the girls and their respective seiyuus are awesome for their respectively roles in this series, but Risa has been the most impressive one for me. I don't think anyone can tell that's her just from listening. Quite skilled really.

PS: Unrelated, go watch Kingdom episode 37!!!! Ouki is so amazing. All sort of shivers at the end of the episode.
