Once again, there are new seiyuus coming and they’re in the shows which I didn’t watched. And again, I like how the veteran seiyuus are coming back just for old times’ sake

10. Chiwa Saito

Roles this year: Homura Akemi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion), Shouko (Kyousogiga), Riko Aida (Kuroko no Basket), Hitagi Senjogahara (Monotagari Season 2)

-Her again? Yeah, listening to her voice is irresistable. But again, most of her roles are franchise roles,

9. Ami Koshimizu

Roles this year: Ryuuko Matou (Kill la Kill), Charles D’Artagnan (Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Brides)

-I know that she did some stuff in Persona 4 last time. I’m happy that she’s back in taking the main role. Hotblooded and feisty protagonists are indeed her forte.

8. Hisako Kanemoto

Roles this year: Amy (Suusei no Gargantia)

-It seems everybody forgot about that Kokoro Connect scandal last 2012 and moved on. But it looks like that she’s stepping back for a while.

7. Eri Kitamura

Roles this year: Yase (Kyousogiga), Sayaka Miki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion), Karen Araragi (Monotagari Season 2)

-She’s very popular but needs to step aside a bit for the newbies. Still, she’s doing her best most especially in her franchise roles.

6. Haruka Tomatsu

Roles:this year: Saki Rukino (Kakumeiki Valvrave), Shiho Sannomiya (Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited), Mari Maya (Samurai Flamenco)

-She’s everywhere right now. Sure, she’s a great actress but I just hope she gets more diverse roles.

5. Aya Suzaki

Roles this year: Mako Mankanshoku (Kill la Kill)

-She used to do supporting roles before. But now as Mako, she certainly has a shot for stardom!

4. Romi Park

Roles this year: Hanjj Zoe (Shingeki no Kyojin), Ragyou Kiryuuin (Kill la  Kill)

-I noticed that instead of voicing young boys, she’s voicing older women who have a lot of charm.

3. Marina Inoue

Roles this year: Armin Arlert (Shingeki no Kyojin), Anna Hendrix (Galileo Donna)

-Out from her other roles this year, her role in SnK is one of the best.

2. Yui Ishikawa

Roles this year: Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin), China Kousaka (Gundam Build Fighters)

-Another newbie seiyuu and with her role as Mikasa, I’m sure that she’s going to get more roles

1. Rie Kugimiya

Roles this year: Koto (Kyousogiga), Kagura (Gintama), Momotarou (Zettain Karen Children: The Unlimited)

-I’m just glad that she’s not being typecast as the tsundere. I had enough of her as the tsundere queen or whatever!

Honorable Mentions:

* Ryouka Yuzuki (Satsuki Kinryuuin of Kill la Kill)

-She’s back and this time, she’s the dreaded student council president. Though, she might not get some major roles for the upcoming years since a lot of newbies are coming.

* Rina Satou (Sakuma of Yondemasu-yo, Azazel-san Z, Saki Kasukabe of Genshiken Nidaime)

-She’s been popping around for some time. Likewise to the rest of the veterans, she’s taking the back seat for the new ones.
