"Call Me Princess" casting call,revised...

Well,since it turns out that there are more younger male seiyuu,I mad some minor revisions to some of the minor roles for this mock cast for an anime version of the Tomoko Taniguch manga "Call Me Princess.The first 5 characters are in order of appearance in the manga,roles with an asterisk are for extra anime-only minor characters that lack actual dialogue in the manga:


  • Ayako Kawasumi(Ruriko Ikusawa in Gatekeepers)as Makoto Takenouchi
  • Tomokazu Seki(Domon Kasshu,Touya Kinomoto) as Shin(Shoko's husband)
  • Houko Kuwashima(Yurika Misamaru,Sango)as Shoko(Shin's Wife)
  • Motoko Kumai(Li Shaoran in Card Captor Sakura) as Yo Takayama
  • Yuuko Miyamura(Asuka Langley Souryu,Ayane Matsui) as Maki
  • Yumiko Kobayashi(Excel Kobayashi),Mikako Takahashi(Mikako Hyatt),and Tomoko Kawakami(Utena Tenjou,Rika Sasaki) as additional female student voices
  • Hiromi Tsuru(Ukyou,Ranma-kun's best fiancée)as Makoto's and Shoko's mother
  • Kappei Yamaguchi(Ranma-kun,Inu-Yasha,Fancy Lala's Tarou Yoshida,and many other anime/game characters) as Makoto's and Shoko's father
  • Toshihiko Seki*(Mousse,Duo Maxwell)as the homeroom teacher
  • Kenichi Suzumura(Kamui in X TV)as Ryuu
  • Kentarou Itou(Jun Aoi in Kidou Senkan Nadeshiko)as Pon Ohata
  • Megumi Hayashibara*(Ranma-chan,Rei Ayanami,Ongo,Faye Valentine,and others)as the hospital nurse
  • Tetsuya Iwanaga(Kensuke Aida) and Kenji Nojima(Setsuna in Angel Sanctuary) as Ryuu's male friends
  • Kikuko Inoue(Kasumi Tendou,Belldandy) as the shopkeeper
  • Miki Itou(Sonomi Daidouji,Hokuto Sumeragi in Tokyo Babylon,Nova)as Ryuu's and Shin's mother
  • Hideyuki Tanaka(Fujitaka Kinomoto)as Ryuu's and Shin's father
  • Kouichi Yamadera(Ryouga Hibiki,Spike Spiegel,Ryouji Kaji)as the Bike Race announcer
  • Issei Miyazaki*(Yamazaki-kun in CCS,Subaru Sumeragi in X/1999 the movie) and Tomokazu Sugita*(Subaru Sumeragi in X the TV series)as additional bikers


Notice how I used younger seiyuu(born in the 70's and 80's)for most of the characters and used the older seiyuu(born in the 50's and 60's)for the adult roles.The roles assigned to Kappei-sama(I just had to cast him in a dignified role as a married parent to guarantee his character a love interest voiced by a quality female seiyuu),Megumi Hayashibara,Miki Itou,Hideyuki Tanaka,Motoko Kumai(I had to assign Yo Takayama to an otokoyaku since he seems to be an antagonist),and possibly Hiromi Tsuru** and Kikuko Inoue(Kotono Mitsuishi could be substituted) are the only ones etched in stone at the moment.If you're not familiar with this manga,a nutshell summary can be found here.


**Owing to the "act of treason"(i.e.Hiromi Tsuru's previous marriage to another VA),I reserve the right to substitute who I'm pairing Kappei-sama with.The short list of alternates includes(but is not limited to):Wakana Yamazaki(Ran Mouri),Yumi Touma(Urd,Deedlit),Aya Hisakawa(Sailor Mercury,Yohko Mano,Kero-chan,Miki Kaoru,Tarta,and others),Chieko Honda(Chigako Ogawa,Kozue Kaoru),Ai Orikasa(Ryouko,Quatre),Minami Takayama(Nabiki Tendou,Ascot),Kumiko Nishihara(Shiori Takatsuki),Maya Okamoto(Haruka Minato,Orihime),Yuuko Mizutani(Mihoshi),Ikue Ohtani(Pikachu),Kikuko Inoue(see above),Kotono Mitsuishi(Sailor Moon,Excel,Juri Arisugawa,and others),Yuriko Yamaguchi(unrelated to Kappei-sama,but she voiced EVA's Ritsuko Akagi),and Yuri Shiratori(Mokona,Arisu Sakaguchi in PSME,Nanami Kiryuu).
