I’ve only watched a handful of anime, so trying to pick a favorite seiyuu (voice actor) is kind of like choosing a favorite singer when you’ve only ever heard five songs. What it comes down to is: whose performance actually made me sit up in my chair take notice?

 

Nana Mizuki caught my ear when she was the voice of Alois Trancy in Kuroshitsuji II. To be honest, this is the only performance of hers I’ve heard. I enjoyed her acting because she really knows how to expressing suffering and crying. And if you know me well, you know I’m a sucker for tears and crying.

 

Here’s a good episode to check out her emotiveness:

Just to be clear it is the blond boy with blue eyes she is voicing.

I love most anime characters, but occasionally, one comes along who I dread to see each time they appear. Prince Soma from Kuroshitsuji is such a character for me. He’s a pathetic, spoiled brat, who eventually realizes this about himself, and you start to sympathize with him. But in the manga, he just never freakin’ seems to go away and I say ‘oh no’ every time he’s back. Sorry, Prince Soma, you are pretty to look at but please shut your mouth.

Pic of Sebastian MichaelisThis is a tough question, because I have really enjoyed all the anime I’ve watched so far, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses. In the end I had to go with Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler). Even though it deviates from the manga, it does so in an entertaining way, and becomes its own crazy story with a fairly satisfying ending. 

It’s the show I would recommend to a person just starting out with anime, and best of all, it made me laugh…loudly and often…which is not easy to do as I’m one of those Spock-types.

12 year old Ciel Phantomhive (of Kuroshitsuji) has been through a lot in his short life. His parents killed, his house burned down, tortured and tormented…and then, in a fit of God-hating frustration, he makes a contract with a demon, whom he names Sebastian. Sebastian is supposed to keep him alive until he enacts his version of revenge, and then, Sebastian will eat Ciel’s soul in exchange.

Grelle is one of those love him or hate him sort of characters. I have to say, that if you are reading/watching Kuroshitsuji and you haven’t gotten through the Jack the Ripper story arc yet, much of what I’m about to say will be spoilers.

 

I’m including Grelle as genderqueer because although he is male, he has said himself in a character guide that he thinks God should have made him a woman. Indeed, he prances about, acts quite girly at times, and wants to have Sebastian’s babies.

Okay, this is another weird pick on my part, but I have no shame in admitting that this white-haired retired Grim Reaper who works as an undertaker is pretty high on the heat scale for me. Though he shows up sporadically in Kuroshitsuji, he’s got a special place in my heart.

Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji is a classic Victorian-era hottie. Rakish hair, looks good in a butler suit, can catch a dart between his fingers without even looking and leaps tall buildings in a single bound. He may be a demon, but he’s got the face of an angel.

I can’t say too much about Madame Red without giving away too many spoilers for the Jack the Ripper story arc in Kuroshitsuji, but trust me that she is a woman with mission, and she will do anything to get what she wants.
