Also thanks to AmiAmi it’s possible to check a few more cast members from the anime:

Ginsei: Daisuke Namikawa
Genko: Rikiya Koyama
Zuishou: Hiroyuki Yoshino
Shuuichirou Kudou: Ken Narita

Daisuke Namikawa as Ginsei… of coooourse, how come I didn’t think of that? xD I don’t know the seiyuus for Genko or Zuishou, but judging by their faces I would say they fit ^^ And Shuuichirou’s seiyuu was Fuuma in X the movie. I think it fits xD

  1. *Chokes* Namikawa Daisuke as Ginsei??? Many people joked about that because of the OTP vibes, but I didn’t know it’d be like that for real o_o; I’m… amused.

    …Who’s Shuuichirou? ;;;;;;;


      • I can’t find any references to the Drama CD cast in the usual places, but one of the commenters on the Amazon.jp page for the DVD does confirm that Clow’s seiyuu was Rikiya Koyama. found that out a while ago, though.

        It’s weird to think that so many voice actors who have done recent work for CLAMP will be participating in this show.


  2. ** VAChE **

    Daisuke Namikawa O___O NEVER SAW THAT COMING! WOW…CLAMP know how to get some fans’ attention (I can totally see Clamp’s hands on this)…maybe 98% of Tsubasa fandom will LOVE this ^___^ maybe Iorogy’s and Ginsei’s true forms look a bit like Kurogane and Fay

    mmmm we still don’t know Toshihiko’s seiyuu u__u…we’ll have to wait until next tuesday to know it since he appeared in Kobato.’s next episode preview ^^ (totally off: why is Kobato. wearing the exactly same clothes in the preview? :/)

    Thank you chibi Yuuto ^^


    • maybe Iorogy’s and Ginsei’s true forms look a bit like Kurogane and Fay

      I think so too. Specially Ginsei’s. He even has the eyepatch ^^;

      why is Kobato. wearing the exactly same clothes in the preview?

      I noticed that too ¬¬ Didn’t they say she would wear different clothes each episode? WTH?


  3. OMG what a cast o.O … i knew i’ll be watching this because of Wish animation and Maeno Tomoaki … but Koyama o.O ….. i’m so gonna love this show xD (not to mention that the rest of the seiyuus are just as brilliant as the two i mentioned o.O)


    • I’m very happy with the cast too! Except for Kobato’s seiyuu, everyone else is very professional (but even Kobato’s seiyuu is perfect for the part and she’s so good in spite of being rather “new”).


  4. MY GOD!
    i never saw it coming definetly… im soo surprised right now.
    Its a really good cast of voices i liked it :D!

    thanks so much chibiyuuto-san you’ve made my day now i can say KUROFYE ITS FOR REAL!

    thanks clamp XD


  5. Ah NamiDai? XD Ginsei striked me as the shy and uke type. Yoshino would have done a great job with Ginsei XD Not that I’m complaining about NamiDai though XD coincidentally I also support Ioryogi/Ginsei

    …Who is Zuishou? I know the seiyuu well Allelujah/Hallelujah Haptism of Gundam 00, Gen of Natsume Yuujinchou and he can do a range of voices.
