Daisuke Namikawa

This guy is an enigma. He voices a lot of bijinns, but he voices a lot of badasses as well. His voice can be hard to look out for, because he has quite a decent range. His basic bijinn high school boy voice is very easy to listen for however, with the likes of Richard (Tales Of Graces F), Yashiro (K), Waver (Fate/Zero) and Satomi (Valvrave). Then he has his swag master king pin characters, with the likes of Yu (Persona 4) and Jungo (Devil Survivor 2). Of course, when he wants to go badass, he'll go badass...with the likes of Ulquiorra (Bleach), Vongola Primo (Katekyo Hitman Reborn) and the tear jerking mess of a father, Hampine Hambert (Sunday Without God). Needless to say, he is decently versatile when he wants to, and that is honestly nice to see.

Ai Kayano

She's a rising star, that's for sure. It was only recently when she got the okay to have so many lead roles on so many different kinds of anime...its crazy really. Go look up her resume, she only began voice acting in 2011 and she has A TON of lead roles already. It's understandable really, her vocal range is insane. She can go uber cute (and make us all cry) with Menma (Anohana). She can be a kuudere, emotionless as hell if she wants to. Inori (Guilty Crown) and Mashiro (The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou) are EXCELLENT, especially Mashiro. She can go as a pretty normal girl if she wants, Ibara (Hyouka), Ai (Oreshura) and Yomi (Senran Kagura) are nice examples (Ai and Yomi can be a tad tsundere at times too). Karila (Stella Jogakuin C3 Bu) is just a wild girl who wants to have fun shooting air soft, and Pino (Valvrave) falls under the uber cute category as well. Madoka (Infinite Stratos) is one of her few villain roles, and she does it well.

Yuka Iguchi

Yuka Iguchi's voice is so moe, there's no doubt in my heart that she has one of THE most moe inducing voices in the anime industry. If she decides to go moe in her voice, which she does most of the time, prepare to have your heart melted like a marshmallow above a fire. I'm talking about characters like Index (To Aru Majutsu No Index), Ruri (Hayate No Gotoku: Can't Take My Eyes Off You), Maria (Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai), Irukuku (Zero No Tsukaima), Tsuhiki (Monogatari Series), Hibari (Senran Kagura) and Mea (To Love Ru Darkness). They all sound somewhat similar, but they have different personalities, which makes it all the more interesting (I'm a fan of the more air head girls, like Index and Maria). She has a take on a Kuudere with Mero (Sankarea), a "big sister" role with Otome (Devil Survivor 2), and the closest she has to a guy is Subaru (Mayo Chiki), whom is actually sexy as hell.

Yui Horie

Her characters are so damn sexy. SO SEXY! Her voice is seemingly very versatile, and she does well in doing a multitude of different character stereotypes. Let's start with her very regular cheerful school girl esque voice which she likes to go with Siesta (Zero No Tsukaima), Yoko (Inukami) and Hanekawa (Monogatari Series). Then she has the uber cute little sister/little girl types with Anna (K), Hanyuu (Higurashi) and Nepgear (Hyperdimension Neptunia). She actually does a surprisingly good male character with the likes of Ryuunosuke (The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou). At times, she also does well with the incredibly cheerful characters such as Chie (Persona 4) and Minori (Toradora). She has the occasional urge to go completely ballistic at times, which is cool and all, because I totally love it when she goes for characters like Akane (Kampfer) or Kanon (Coppelion). Finally, she can do the voice of a refined "ojou sama" just right, Maruga (Dragon Crisis) fits the bill nicely.

Minori Chihara

There is not much to say here. You should know who Minori Chihara is by now, if you don't, you clearly haven't been through the infamous Haruhi meta. Anyways, if you DON'T know who she is, she's basically the ultimate queen of kuudere characters. Rie Kugimiya is the queen of tsunderes, Minori Chihara is the queen of kuuderes, there's no doubt about it. Of the 8 characters I have listed here, 7 of them are kuudere, for better or for worse. If by any chance you see a kuudere in any anime, just cross your fingers and hope its her, because she does it well. Dalnia (So I Can't Play H?), Minami (Lucky Star), Kuchinashi (Needless), Horizon (Kyokai Senjou Horizon), Nagato (The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya), Chiaki (Minami-Ke) and Nasuhara (OniAi) are ALL Kuuderes. Mitsuki (Kyoukai No Kanata) isn't, and I think she Minori did well voicing her, she's more of a regular high school girl.

Toshiyuki Morikawa

Another very fabulous man we've got here...by the way, its time to cue Dante's team. Toshiyuki Morikawa looks f**king fabulous for a man in his late 40s (looks like many seiyuus have many things in common), and by god, his characters are badass as hell. Just one role is enough really, but this dude has a huge resume of characters. If you're wondering what character I'm talking about, it's f**king Dante (Devil May Cry). This man voices Dante, THE Dante, the demon hunter. Other than that's he's got lots of badass characters nailed down, Minato (Naruto Shipuuden), Tousen (Bleach), Mitsurugi (Soul Calibur Series) and Leon (Resident) are in the list. His take on villains are mighty amazing as well, with the likes of Dhaos (Tales Of Phantasia), Tykki Mikk (D.gray Man) and Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII) included in the table.
