Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA

DIES LAUGHING Niisan just let me listen to this Sakurai Takahiro x Midorikawa Hikaru BL drama (it's called Kirei Papa) - and Midorikawa is Miyata Kouki's dad, and MORIKAWA TOSHIYUKI is Midorikawa's FATHER and his name is CHIHIRO. CHIHIRO. WAY to feed my Suzuki Chihiro love without even intending it, Morikawa! And Morikawa's character is... well, he is basically ISSHIN FROM BLEACH. "Call me CHIIII-SAAAAN!!! :D :D :D" is the gist of it. Yeah, it's still really hard to get over that SEPHIROTH and Conrad from KKM are ISSHIN FROM BLEACH. I still remember the brain-breakage when kateriya told me that. ♥

Since I've been meaning to for quite a while, HERE ARE SEIYUU PICTURES. :D First up is the Gakuen Heaven cast. I must say that the whole "Let's Get the Seiyuu to Pose Like the Characters!" gimmick will never get old for me.

This one's FOR THE BOYS! - The Gakuen Heaven Cast.

That's Morikawa Toshiyuki on the extreme left in the leather jacket. At the - cough - bottom left, that'd be Fukuyuma Jun, and at the bottom right, that's Sakurai Takahiro. I adore this Sakurai photograph.

I really really like the way Sakurai looks in this photograph. There aren't as many good Sakurai photographs out there as there should be, so this one is special. This anime’s got Fukuyuma Jun (Watanuki in XXXHolic, Tooru in Princess Princess) as Ito Keita, Sakurai Takahiro (Cloud Strife in FF7/AC, Yuuri in KKM, Kira Izuru in Bleach, Haruka in Tactics, Orpherus in Meine Liebe, Ray Langren in GunXSword, I could go on and on, I lose count of the number of series I follow because this man is in it :D), Morikawa Toshiyuki (Sephiroth in FF7/AC, Conrad in KKM, Isshin in Bleach – [HA YEAH], I could ALSO go on and on) as Nakajima.

...I wrote an extended edit to this with a running commentary on a Gakuen artwork and I stupidly hit a key and lost the entire edit. Can't be bothered to write it again, so here's a more comprehensive cast list on Gakuen and the character list. But it was just as well I'd only written half of it, so here's the other half I wrote later.

I'm gonna post artwork (in a separate post, it was WAY TOO BIG) of all the Gakuen characters in a FANTASY RP. It's BRILLIANT and I love it and Kaoru is an elf, so all is RIGHT with the word. And Iwai is the angsty-artist type and so therefore he is the SEER. Niwa (the King) is the WARRIOR, and also voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi, who was Haji in Blood+, Shouri Shibuya in KKM, and SOUBI in Loveless. NIWA IS TOTALLY 180 DEGREES THE OPPOSITE OF HAJI AND SOUBI. He's like the loving gregarious warm and giving President of the Student Council who takes care of everyone and is strong and wonderful and NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING like either Soubi or Haji, who are... well, cold-blooded wouldn't be an inaccurate description. (of course they're more complex than that, I've just got an adjective for common use) Nakajima (Morikawa) looks like the WARLORD. MY HONEY MIKISHIN is the BARD.

You will SCREAM at the MikiShin character. He is blond and pretty and a TENNIS PLAYER and HITS ON ALL THE BOYS until he finds Ito Keita, and then he is MY HONEY ~ I HAVE FINALLY FOUND YOU. You are looking at him and you are NO THAT CANNOT BE MIKI SHINICHIROU (the SHINOU DEAR HEAVENS) but he IS.

Shunsuke is the thief, of course - he's a red-haired, green-eyed CAT BOY voiced by SUZUMURA KENICHI. WHAT, you're ZACK from Final Fantasy 7, the Hikaru half of the Ouran twins, KAMUI from X, and AYUMU FROM SPIRAL and YOU COME AND VOICE THIS CATBOY IN GAKUEN HEAVEN? Jin (another one of the character designs I love, he's basically a kinder version of the Tyrant uke) is voiced by NARITA KEN, who's Seimei in Loveless, FUUMA in X, ISHIDA RYUUKEN IN BLEACH, and SANZO in Saiyuki.

Kaoru’s seiyuu, Kamiya Hiroshi, also voices President Arisada in Princess Princess. (I need to do another post for that!)

Uh, you can also see how biased I am because I only remember roles and names for a very limited number of seiyuu, and the usual thing they all have in common is that they were in KKM. But there is ONE EXCEPTION to the rule that the only seiyuu I remember are the ones who have been in KKM, and his name is SUZUKI CHIHIRO.

Suzuki Chihiro. How much do I love this one, let me count the ways. This one is my personal favourite. xD I like him even more than Sakurai and that’s really difficult to top (uhhhhh I did not intend that) as far as I’m concerned. The only thing that’s a pity about Suzuki is I wish he would voice more current anime roles, but it’s all right, there’s LOTS to fall back on. The only question is where to start. I first started noticing him because he was on Tales of the Abyss, and I just could not believe it when I looked at the photograph of Asch’s seiyuu and I was THAT PRETTY THING IS ASCH’S VOICE ACTOR SHOCK HORROR

this must be what it feels like when Sephiroth fans first set eyes on Morikawa Toshiyuki. Honestly, he looks like the TOTAL opposite of Asch – gentle, sweet, absolutely tiny! Suzuki Chihiro gives me the same feeling Tales of the Abyss’s Luke does – I call it the GENKI WO DAISHITE feeling. :D (Asch is my Sairin Tsubasa ONE WINGED ANGEL feeling, if anyone wants a comparison). Besides Tales of the Abyss, Suzuki Chihiro also voiced Platina in Apocripha, Chris in Angel’s Feather (boy, does he like the games) (The OVA is being released soon! I can’t wait! Niisan showed me this fascinating entry about the release of the OVA, and Suzuki was at the premiere for the Angel’s Feather fanclub meet-the-fans session. Apparently he recently acquired a dog. A Pomeranian. And he thinks Chris’s favourite colour is silver. I think that’d be more like Platina’s favourite colour to me, silver is too obvious a choice for Chris!) He was also the lead in Kare Kano (my heavens did he have the potential for EVIL in this one), and Kamio Akira in Prince of Tennis.

And if you go for that sort of thing, his BL career is nothing short of WHOA. He was with Morikawa Toshiyuki in The Answer and Corsair (the prettiest art, EVER), with […don’t remember the name] (Gunter in KKM, Kakashi in Naruto) in Munesawagi 6 (which also has Morikawa Toshiyuki x Sakurai Takahiro and Miyata Kouki – Niisan calls this as close you can get to KKM without it actually BEING KKM), and naturally he was in the Angel’s Feather dramas, too. This one made Niisan and I burst out laughing hysterically in the university library because it was the ONLY time he has ever been seme and guess who he seme’d. MIYATA KOUKI. Right, it’s Chris x Anri, that making it Suzuki Chihiro x Miyata Kouki. He did a lot of other BL dramas too, but I remember THESE because that’s when his career intersects with the KKM cast.

… KKM is the only thing that can get me to stop talking about Abyss. For a series that’s ended its run, you could never tell. KKM is still getting features in Animage and Animedia and it’s still being serialised in Asuka. (Now I know where to buy Asuka, D8, it looks like I’m not going to stop as long as I get Wolfram). And Yuuri’s brother Shouri TOTALLY has a brother complex. Even Conrad says so. I so need to do a separate KKM post. And a separate Gakuen post. And even a separate PRINCESS PRINCESS post. Darn, this rocks. xD When I get on a roll with LJ NOTHING CAN STOP ME.

Naturally, following this very long entry, seiyuu photographs follow. For those reading this, I don't really know what your seiyuu policy is like. I can imagine that you might not want to see the faces behind the voices and characters you love so much, because some of them can come as rather a shock. Maybe it's like... wowIneedabetteranalogythanthis... certain types of food, because you can eat them but you sure don't wanna know how they're made. But so all the seiyuu talk was above and all the photographs are below, so if you don't wanna see it you don't have to. But for those who do, here goes!

The picture of Suzuki on top, that's my favourite picture of Suzuki.

..Suzuki was your fashion sense influenced by Morikawa? Yep, the picture on the bottom, below this line? That's Suzuki on the left and Morikawa on the right, BOTH OF THEM IN FLORAL SHIRTS.

I can't believe that's Asch's seiyuu?!

The Munesawagi 6 photoshoot is one of my favourite cast photographs EVER. This is because it has Suzuki Chihiro, Inoue Kazuhiko, Morikawa Toshiyuki, Sakurai Takahiro, and Miyata Kouki, THROWING ROSES AT EACH OTHER.

Suzuki going WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY ROSES and Morikawa BEATING SAKURAI with roses LOL WTH D8 8D?!?!?!

Suzuki being cuddled by Inoue Kazuhiko.Suzuki's the one in the maroon shirt.

Which is a LOT better than

Suzuki being cuddled by Morikawa. Suzuki's the one in the colourful shirt on the extreme left. Regrettably, I have not found a better and bigger version of this picture.

All of the seiyuu who seme Suzuki seem to want to cuddle him, but he just happens to be so small and so cuddleable. ...it is a bit weird talking about Asch's seiyuu as being lovable, but when you see him you will understand!

Note: LOL WTH Papa To Kiss drama CD with MikiShin x Midorikawa and TAKEHITO KOYASU (who I now will REMEMBER because of homura and Jade) x Chiba Susumu?! Also, WHAT?! Wild Rock (Morikawa Toshiyuki x Fukuyama Jun)?! AND WHAT?! Suwabe Junichi is in KIRE PAPA?! Also the BL Food Chain is damn hilarious. And Audio Wiki for BL dramas is just FANTASTIC.

Actually, Suzuki Chihiro also voices Luke, and he does an awesome job of it. He's very expressive (as opposed to his Asch voice, which is grumpy all the time.)

Anyway, he has this silly grin in the photos, it's very cute!
5th-May-2006 03:51 pm (UTC) - XDDDDDDDDDDD *BEAMS*
XD Heh, isn't it great? :D I think him voicing Luke made me love him so much, really. If Suzuki just voiced Asch I am sure I wouldn't love him quite so much. My spillove bocchama-love is THAT GREAT. I just was cautious said he voiced Asch because I was so worried I'd spoil people by saying both Asch and Luke were voiced by the same person. Just in case, although I know everyone on my flist already knows. *grin*

I LOVE HIS EXPRESSIVE VOICE. It's a very very flexible voice, which makes me go WHOA in wonder because I've heard his other roles, and he REALLY does do a huge variety. I mean, just listening to him as Luke and Asch, I GO, WHAT THAT CANNOT BE THE SAME PERSON. And even his voice at the end is different, too. So much love for this seiyuu. xD

OH SOBS. Sometimes Asch's grumpiness sets me on edge, but with Luke I am HAPPY ALL THE TIME. Unless I'm angsting when he's sad, that is. LUKE I LAUGH YOUR JOY AND CRY YOUR GRIEF. (... I've been reading too many e e cummings poems. xD)

! I LOVE THAT GRIN. he is just the cutest thing ever in his photographs. *smiles* I want to take him home and protect him, a bit like the way I feel about Luke, only Luke can usually take care of himself.
5th-May-2006 03:56 pm (UTC) - Re: XDDDDDDDDDDD *BEAMS*
I'm sorry -_-;

At least Suzuki knows you have to pay for food in a store XD The scene where Luke goes "...Well, if you're a suspicious person it might be dangerous to travel with you!" made me laugh really hard. He's such a little kid, trying not to talk with strangers XD
5th-May-2006 03:59 pm (UTC) - ...I keep wanting to make happy!Abyss icons to comment to you. :D
because my DELIRIOUSLY HAPPY Abyss icons are... um, sortaasch/luke. So whenever I comment to you I am HAPPY MIEU! HAPPY LUKE! XDDD *grin*

Don't be sorry *grin* I like any chance to go ASCH = LUKE AND THAT ROCKS because isn't that seiyuu great? *grin*


Guy: ... =___= where did you think food came from?
Luke: ... the birds bring it?
Guy: ^^;;; not quite.


I can imagine that when Luke first starts to cook, if he cooks rice, Guy would be NO LUKE when I said WASH THE RICE I did not mean WITH SOAP.
5th-May-2006 04:04 pm (UTC) - I LOVE ALL YOUR ICONS.
...I keep wanting to write a short story on Guy explaining where babies come from to Luke except, uh, I'm embarassed. Ahahaha *shot*

*dies laughing at Luke washing rice with soap* I could so see him do that XDDDDD
5th-May-2006 03:38 pm (UTC)
Ahhhhhh, it's Yui Horie!!! XD I haven't seen a picture of her for ages. As usual, genki desu no! 8D

Sakurai...looks kinda...nonchalent in the photo. D:
5th-May-2006 03:56 pm (UTC) - *GRIIIN*
OH MY HEAVENS THANK YOU SO MUCH for telling me ; ) I was just wondering who that lady was! (Clearly I have a one track mind, but YOU ARE GOOOOOD).

HEHEHEHEH YES. But but most of the other Sakurai pictures I have seen have him AS A TOTAL DORK. XDDD *grin*

5th-May-2006 03:48 pm (UTC)
Ludwig from Meine Liebe was voiced by Seki Toshihiko (which was the reason why I started watching ML) not Conrad Morikawa =D
5th-May-2006 03:52 pm (UTC)
OH NO I KNEW I MIGHT MAKE A MISTAKE SOMEWHERE. This is what happens when I don't fact-check! *GOES TO EDIT* Thank you so much! XD
5th-May-2006 03:54 pm (UTC)
HEHEH. Thank you so much. I keep thinking Ludwig was voiced by Morikawa. XD WHAT AN ACCIDENT. *laughing*

5th-May-2006 03:57 pm (UTC)

(I'm like you with Sakurai - dude, you HAVE to watch Konjiki no Gash Bell and SekiToshi ♥)
5th-May-2006 03:55 pm (UTC)
He was with Morikawa Toshiyuki in The Answer and Corsair

I love the way you said that, I really really love the way you said that. :D :D :D

On the topic of Koyasu - apparently he semes Suzuki Chihiro in a bunch of dramas including wagamama ouji go youjin - I have no idea exactly which others are included BUT I WILL HUNT THEM DOWN. :D :D :D

Answer is one of my favourite dramas and so is the Munasawagi series but the Angel's Feather dramas remind me most of Suzuki himself? Because of the way Chris is portrayed... playful with a hint of angst and everything... it matches the picture of Suzuki a lot better than his other uke roles... There again, I don't know all that much about what he's like IRL but yeah, that's just the impression I get.

Oh, and if you want the Kirei Papa 3 drama you can get it here. I loved the series when it was just Sakurai x Midorikawa but now that Morikawa's in it too... Love up 100%! :D
5th-May-2006 04:40 pm (UTC) - ... you just MADE MY DAY XD
I LOVE THE WAY YOU SAY JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. ♥ althoughwasitreallythatspecialwhatIsaid. XD


! I I suddenly get what you mean by playful with a hint of angst. It's like how Suzuki - could be, I think?


5th-May-2006 04:46 pm (UTC) - Re: ... you just MADE MY DAY XD
Heh. I think it was the use of the word "with", it set my Morikawa/Suzuki plot bunnies tingling! :D :D :D

I found out about it by accident too! :D It was on the Kirei Papa 3 post (in the comments) on bl_dramas and brain was like wtf! :D There are also the Candy Quartz Apartment series (what kind of name is Candy Quartz? o.o) that are MikiShin x Suzuki Chihiro. :D But yes! And I think "ouji" means prince? Have to double check what the characters look like but if there's one thing I remember from playing Apocripha _£%^()^£$)(&£)$£ number of times is that ouji means prince... :D :D :D

Yes! Exactly! :D :D :D That's the sense that I get from the Chris x Sho and the Shion x Chris dramas... though I haven't listened to the Chris x Anri one though. :p

And it would probably be a cute pomeranian too

Sakurai should really do more seme roles... I really love his seme roles... Saw the BL food chain you linked and was like *cries* there's not enough seme!Sakurai...

Even though when he's seme he sounds as (more?) pervy than Morikawa...
5th-May-2006 04:48 pm (UTC) - Re: ... you just MADE MY DAY XD
Er. The use of the word tingling just sounds wrong now. Especially in the context of my plot bunnies. Er. *face palms at self*
5th-May-2006 05:15 pm (UTC) - Re: ... you just MADE MY DAY XD
And I think "ouji" means prince?

Yes, it does. (all PoT fans know what tennis no oujisama means XDDDDD)

yay, I wake up to an aefallen-spammed lj! :DDD
5th-May-2006 05:30 pm (UTC)
DDD< Where are you getting your copies of Asuka from? Are you the reason there's never any in Mitsukoshi anymore? XD;;
6th-May-2006 03:15 pm (UTC) - ! Mitsukoshi v. Japan Center? xD
I get my Asuka from Japan Center, which is in Piccadilly Circus? That's not Mitsukoshi, I think? Japan Center's third floor has a bookstore, and I see extra copies of Asuka around. They usually bring in three. :D Have you been there yet? Maybe one day I might see you there? XD Japan Center also stocks Newtype and Animage and Animedia. XD IT IS LOVE.
6th-May-2006 03:25 pm (UTC) - Re: ! Mitsukoshi v. Japan Center? xD
I know the JC! I used to know the owner and some of the staff quite well, back in the day. I've never seen Asuka in there, pah, I guess I just have crummy timing ;__;
Haha, look for the person that looks like a Mr Whippy wearing a wig, (so much sunshine and yet still so horribly pale D:), and it'll probably be me :D

Mitsukoshi is round the corner if you go down the street, towards the park, there's a japanese department store and they have a bookshop in their basement, they often have some stuff cheaper there, so sometimes it's worth checking.
6th-May-2006 05:17 am (UTC) - Master is spamming, yay!
You know KKM seems to be getting a lot of press now in local (US/Aus) anime related publications. Each time I see something, I think "That reminds me of Aefallen!". Kekekekeke!
