I’ve had my fair share of anime crushes, and now that I think about it, I think that about 90% of the reason why I develop an anime crush is the voice. I have a fetish thing for voices, after all. Ahem!
Seiyuu are one of the most important aspects of anime. They bring characters to life, and I think that depending on how well they portray their characters, they contribute greatly to the overall popularity of the anime series, and I argue even to the total sales of the series’ merchandises. Sometimes you even fall in love with a character because of the excellent portrayal of the seiyuu.
