Death Note seiyuu
ANN have updated the Death Note anime site and and and this.

I. So. The seiyuu. I don't know if I'm more thrilled or terrified or just. Okay. Thrilled! And also terrified!

Light - Ishida Akira
L - Paku Romi

I'm sorry, no words, just - ♥♥♥.

For a cast that's going to spend most the anime just talking, I couldn't have wished for better voices, though L being Paku Romi is weird and Ishida Akira as Light. Yes. SO TERRIFYING AND RIGHT. ♥

Can't find a more official source, but still. Even if this is just a collective hallucination, my reaction's still the same!

UMMM I'm still deciding how I feel! L as Paku Romi...emotionally she can do it, but L in my mind sounds more male - light tenor, but definitely male. If that makes sense. I'm sure she'll do a bang-up job, though. Ishida Akira - in some ways he's almost too perfect for it, it sort of undermines Light's innocent act because, it's Ishida Akira, his voice screams scary psychopath! Also I'm not sure I want Hakkai and Xellos mixed up with Light in my head...
...scratch that. I know I don't want them mixed up. They're quite scary enough on their own!

I know, L is... I hadn't imagined a female L. A female Near or Mello, yeah, but L? But! Since it's Paku Romi I know I'll get used to it. I have faith!

But Ishida Akira can do cute and innocent! Really! Just because we know him as psychopaths doesn't necessarily mean he's always that terrifying, and then - and then, Light is a (polite) freaky psycho bastard, and Ishida Akira will do it SO WELL. ♥

Man. I'm much more excited about the anime now than I was before. ^^;

Oh, yes. It's kind of cool that you don't know the manga - you'll be able to watch the anime (you WILL watch the anime!), and actually be surprised by stuff! And with the good voices! Hee~! ♥

OF COURSE I'll watch the anime. The only thing that prevented me to read the manga is that I gate reading on a computer screen. And some personnal issues with kanjis in the Japanese tankubon.

I'm fine with reading on the computer screen, that's the only reason I've read it myself... I can read manga in Japanese (dictionaries are my friend!), but Death Note? Death Note is. Uh. Thre's lots and lots and LOTS of talking, which means LOTS of kanji and it's all more complicated than "I'll beat you and get stronger and fight for my friends and my dream" which is pretty much the stuff I can usually understand. ^^;;

Seriously, I can so see this work. Ishida Akira as Light is without saying (WOW), and Paku Romi as L is... yes, I can definitely see it work. ♥

Isn't it awesomeness? ^_____^ Ahahahah Ishida Akira is so terrifying and adorable at the same time, it's great!
