Yeah, Tomoko Kawakami. She was the Japanese voice actress for Utena Tenjou from Shoujo Kakumei Utena, for Rosette Christopher in Chrno Crusade, and for Mariko Kurama in Elfen Lied. English dub voice actors I like:
-Rue/Kraehe from Princess Tutu
-Azmaria Hendric from Chrno Crusade
-Arakawa from Elfen Lied
-Shader from Chrno Crusade
-Lucy/Nyu from Elfen lied
-Sister Claire from Chrno Crusade
-Lilie from Princess Tutu
-Nana from Elfen Lied
-Prince Mytho from Princess Tutu
-Kurama from Elfen Lied
-Rosette Christopher from Chrno Crusade
-Satsuki Miyanoshita from Ghost Stories
-Chrno from Chrno Crusade
-Leo Kakinoki from Ghost Stories
That's about it. Most of the stuff I watch through Anime Network is English dub, except for Utena, which I overwhelmingly prefer in its original Japanese.
Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier--I had a problem with the message function that's been going on for the past few days for some reason. Perhaps you've experienced it too.
Anyway, Nana is indeed adorable, and so is Mayu. Nyuu is adorable as well, of course, and the whole relationship she has with Kohta is really cute. Yeah, Lucy only gets awakened when Nyuu gets hit in the head. Bando would have killed her in episode two, had she stayed as Nyuu for sure.
I've always liked anime too. I can't say I've ever watched Naruto, but I like shojo anime like Utena, Sailor Moon, Rose of Versailles, Chobits, Princess Tutu, and other anime like Ranma 1/2, the Dragon Ball series, Chrno Crusade, Elfen Lied, Heidi.
Yep, and it's about to get a whole lot worse. I won't spoil anything for you, but I'm sure from what your brother has said, you've concluded that already. It's definitely worth watching, though. Someone re-uploaded the series on YouTube, I found out just yesterday, so I'm re-watching it as well. My fav. character is Nana. If you're at episode 5, you already know about her, and the cute bond she has with Kurama, my 2nd fav.
Yeah, Nyuu is cute. :3
