Oi, you can't break up my Ratal OTP. >D

download: The Answer
Morikawa Toshiyuki X Suzuki Chihiro
And for those of you who like seiyuu but would prefer not to have the BL, or just want to hear what Suzuki Chihiro (Luke's seiyuu) sounds like (and/or Morikawa Toshiyuki!): The Answer: Freetalk
With many, many thanks to Nii-san. ♥ Nii-san kind of has seen all this spam already so. xD I tend to make lots of little posts over time and then consolidate them into one huge one. Like this one.
I have discovered that Suzuki Chihiro has the Miyata Kouki effect on me: listening to his real voice makes me happy. It's like aural caffeine. Suzuki Chihiro is the prettiest seiyuu I've ever
seen. This is really one whose voice can come closer to his appearance than most other seiyuu. Sobs distantly in a corner about Morikawa, because if you ever see his picture, Sephiroth will be the furthest thing on your mind. Ultraviolet
trailer. I've always thought Milla Jovovich was beautiful. Check out the Apple Trailers site
- to see anything you want. Tales of the Abyss seiyuu list
. And Wikipedia actually has a pretty decent Abyss entry
. Here's the one on KKM, because it amused me. Takehito Koyasu
voices Jade. The more I look at what he's done, the more I wonder what he's NOT done. He was Jubei in Getbackers, Isaac in Meine Liebe (*whistles!* Good one, 'cause I'd say his character in Abyss
is closer to Ludwig than anyone else). And risax
, I shall be gross and say that he played a character named Harris in one of his seiyuu roles. >D And apparently he voiced a Luke Valentine in Hellsing, so I now think that name is the most charming ever. Also, he voiced Ryosuke in Initial D. Very bad, my first association is Edison Chen, because I am that young.
But SUZUKI CHIHIRO. THIS IS THE BEST DISCOVERY OF ALL OF ABYSS BECAUSE - well, let me explain. Suzuki Chihiro
voices Luke. Suzuki Chihiro is also a fairly prolific BL seiyuu. Why this is an excellent thing, and Abyss spoilers
Because Suzuki Chihiro has been seme'd by some of the best seiyuus ever to speak into a mike
. He was with Morikawa Toshiyuki (you do not know how much restraint it took not to type that in capitals)- [Conrad in KKM, Sephiroth, Ludwig in Meine Liebe] in The Answer
, and by Inoue Kazuhiko [Gunter in KKM, Kakashi in Naruto, Eiri Yuki in Gravitation].
And also, Nii-san tells me that Suzuki Chihiro's voice in The Answer
is the voice he uses for Asch/Luke in the ending of the game. >D Nii-san knows everything
Suzuki Chihiro is also a very pretty name, and has voiced Arima in Kare Kano
- shocking, I've just seen that for the first time with the housemates, so really I was listening to Luke all along and never knew it. And also, for the sheer crack factor, and because I've been waiting for ages to mention this, he also was a seiyuu in HAMTARO. Along with MIYATA KOUKI, whom Nii-san and I both agreed should have voiced Mieu. :DAnd also? Proof that those who can't draw will have to screencap instead.
The fun bit was, I didn't even have to edit THIS one.
Asch and Luke *are* kissing.
AMUSED. Have inflicted Abyss onto Heika-housemate. >D
Me: *opens up Namco website on IE* Can you guess which one is my favourite?
Housemate: This one. *points unerringly to Luke*
Me: :D YOU'RE RIGHT!!! HOW DID YOU GUESS?! :D
Housemate: The prettiest one. ... The girliest one.
The thing is, when they use THOSE criteria, they're ALWAYS right.
So, Suzuki Chihiro! He voices Luke in Tales of the Abyss
. Luke is uke. We know this, not only because that's what you get when he loses the L, but also because he is voiced by one Suzuki Chihiro, who happens to also be a BL seiyuu only slightly less prolific than Sakurai Takahiro, and who has been seme'd by no less than Morikawa Toshiyuki and Inoue Kazuhiko in his other roles. Also, Luke is the biggest uke in the Markt Empire and Kimlasca, as evinced by this video here.
Luke is so uke that he can even be seme'd by himself. Suzuki Chihiro's picture on Anime News Network
. He is the image of BRIGHT-EYED AND SCARILY BUSHY-TAILED. He is PICTURE PERFECT GENKI OR SOMETHING. And he looks DISTURBINGLY YOUNG.
... RIGHT HE IS ONLY 7 years older than me. Unlike Morimori who is 1,0000 years old. And my GOD Suzuki has ALWAYS had the GENKI look. Even when Much Younger
And the pictures from The Answer
: Predatory!Morimori is the scariest thing ever T___T
Especially when Suzuki Chihiro looks so young
in these pictures? I look at them and my first reaction is CALL THE POLICE!!! Which usually is my first reaction on seeing Morikawa. Sobs.
Downloaded the first Corsair drama (another Morikawa Toshiyuki X Suzuki Chihiro drama, and here are the pictures, seiyuu and cover art alike:
This really IS my favourite type of uke!
...MORIMORI... NOT AGAIN...
The only thing I know about the artist, however, is her name. I did find a summary/cast list in English that was marginally helpful, here
. Marginally because, even with the names provided, I couldn't turn up any more art. xD
小說：水壬楓子 / Author : Minami Fuuko
插圖：御園えいり/ Illustration : Mizono Eiri Summary of Corsair
The beautiful blind young man Kanarre joined the pirates Burevessa 8 years ago and became Burevessa's strategist. Due to recent happenings, Kanarre had a feeling that his dark past may be revealed, and decided to leave. He was almost assasinated and rescued by Burevessa's fleet commander Ayassu. Ayassu believed the previous leader of Burevessa's last words that Kanarre would be the man whom Burevessa need. And to stop Kanarre from leaving, he tied Kanarre down with a physical relationship.
Why does that already sound hot.
And evidence that Suzuki Chihiro has a thing for playing pretty uke-like silver-haired feminine men (hey, maybe he should've voiced Yazoo xD):
This is Ap0cripha, a yaoi game where Suzuki Chihiro voiced Platina, a silver-haired, blue-eyed
prince of Hell. He's ALSO generally emotionless and quiet. >D The blond one is his ELDER brother. Yes, the ELDER brother. Blond and small = Nii-san, in ETERNAL RIVALRY with Sephiroth. HELLO THE NII-SAN COMPLEX. The game centers around a succession war, and the princes are at the center of it. Suzuki Chihiro's advisor is a certain Jade, voiced by none other than
Morikawa Toshiyuki. >D Cast list
, which also features Hoshi Soichiro and Seki Tomokazu, which seems to make it an unusually well-voiced BL game. There are numerous screencaps of half-dressed characters, or artistically-naked characters clearly in the aftermath of majorly questionable activities, but here are the pretty ones: Suzuki Chihiro and MoriMori! Morimori's the green-haired Jade (how original), and Suzuki is Sephiroth. Er, I mean, the silver-haired one.
Does Morikawa have a I-must-voice loyal-retainers complex? First Conrad, then Ap0cripha, then Sainkoku Monogatari (Cai Yun Guo Wu... the Nii-san and Emperor story? XD) [And at least for Conrad and Jade, they both are MORE THAN THEY SEEM, i.e. with DARK SOULS and SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR behind the cheerful nikoniko exteriors.]
On his days off, Platina enjoys looking pretty:
And strolling around barely-dressed in his garden:
What does one do with a Nii-san? Take progressively suggestive pictures with him, of course!
This picture seems to scream MINE MINE MIIIIINE:
There was also a super-dodgy picture of the both of them obviously not wearing any clothes, lying on sheets, and clearly ... exhausted. Um. Here if you want to satisfy a morbid curiosity. You can imagine it's Sephiroth and long-haired Cloud?
