They do the voices...


As part of my personal (unasked-for) campaign to see that artists (in this case, voice artists or seiyuu) get their deserved recognition, I offer this page and its associated links. For the material that has been dubbed, the original Japanese seiyuu are to the left and the American voice actresses are to the right of the pictures of the characters they play.

Links (updated 15 February 2007)

If you are interested in Japanese seiyuu in general, Hitoshi Doi is definitely the fellow to see for a huge databank on them [Note: owing to the sheer size of this task, some types of information are much more up-to-date than others]

Ryuu's Seiyuu Info is another site with material on Japanese anime voice artists, particularly from the 1990s on (and is somewhat more current on many of them)

Here's a Japanese page listing the Internet "radio" shows hosted by anime seiyuu

There are substantial listings for American (and some Japanese) anime voice artists at The Voice Actors Page, The Voice Works, and Keyframe


Another database for anime dubbing actors is at Crystal Acids (the artwork here is by Alex Villagracia)


Here are some sites worth looking at if you're generally interested in American voice actors:

Daniel F.'s Cartoon Casts list for various American animated shows

Leonard Tai's English Voice Talent Database for anime dubbing

There is also a Yahoo! Group devoted to Voice Actor Appreciation.
