Alright, I'll try and get through the rest of my yearlong evaluation posts from last year's shows seeing that it's June and normally these finish out in March, but I got sidetracked by more important things in life as they should. Anyway, I'll quickly do the next one where I'll only do one set of explanations for my choices rather than one for each category. This one involves voice acting on the Japanese side of things.

So with that, here is the next end-of-2017 evaluation, this time looking at the Japanese voice acting. As I said before, I'm combining the explanations into one as a lot of these selections are often a package deal more so than anything.

The rakugo show is voice acting gold as it's quite a difficult show to voice act. Knowing this, an all-star seiyuu cast was brought in seeing that doing rakugo the right way requires lots of training, something that takes years of experience to get it right. These seiyuus were trained extremely well, and combined with their tremendous talents, they pulled it off with flying colors and fallen words. Akira Ishida totally knocked it own of the part with his rakugo, as well as his voice range being able to voice an old man, and doing precision rakugo in the process. It's a safe bet that this show won't be dubbed as it too everything these seiyuus had and then some to voice it all. It just can't be done in English. Owarimonogatari and March Comes in Like a Lion is full of excellent voice acting, while Saori Hayami totally owns the role of Yumeko to make this whole dub go. And of course, everything else I listed are ones that were really memorable for me whether the voice fits perfectly like with the voices for Elias, Shishigami, and Hinata, the performance just knocks it out of the park like with Tanya, Umaru, and Koyomi, or the voice simply does the unusual and does so well like with Satania and Sandal.
