10. Chiwa Saitou
-I really like how she changed her voice as Stella most especially when she goes cute, deadly and later, masculine.
9. Eri Kitamura
-yes, Saya is such a bitch in apocalyptic wasteland but she’s very adorable and loud in the "other" world.
8. Maaya Sakamoto
– I love her roles as being the deadpan snarker who may get other people in a lot of nerves.
7. Yuu Kobayashi
-Like Chiwa, she can change her voice in wide ranges. I think the most likable role is when she played as the Amazoness.
6. Yuuki Aoi
– a neophyte of the voice acting world, she already got a lot of starring roles there. She’s indeed a promising talent.
5. Minako Kotobuki
Roles this year: Sen Tokugawa (Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls), Daidai (Otome Youkai Zakuro), Tsumugi Kotobuki (K-On!)
-she would had a lot of big roles compared to her K-On! castmates.
4. Ayahi Takagaki
Roles this year: Ami Kuroki (Occult Academy), Erika Karisawa (Durarara), Feldt Grace (MS Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer)
– I really like her performance in singing "You Raise Me Up" which was sang by Josh Groban and other artists. She’s really a talent out there.
3. Kana Hanazawa
-I noticed that she tends to play megane characters and characters with high tension. I would never guess that she would play stoic ones too. She really has so many main roles this year.
– Being the Best Lead Actress of this year, she really got potential here.
1. Yoko Hikasa
-she’s a rising star here thanks to K-On!. Not only she can do moe roles, she can also do tsundere roles.
* Ayako Kawasu,mi (Saber- Fate stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Megumi Noda- Nodame Cantibile Finale)
– she wasn’t really active this year despite having a few supporting roles.
*Yoshiko Ikuta (Yukina Sonogi- Senkou no Night Raid)
-she’s a neophyte and I hope that she can have more roles in the future.
*Harumi Sakurai (Yuri Nakamura- Angel Beats)
-just found out that she used to do hentai roles. But she proved that she can do general anime roles too.
*Chiaka Omigawa (P-ko – Arakawa Under the Bridge)
-since Soul Eater, I hope she get more roles in the future.
