Reactions Around the Web
Midorikawa!!!! Such a perfect fit for this character!!
Midorikawa?! What era are we in...
He really is old, huh? He's still my fave, though.
I didn't know Hirokawa was still doing seiyuu work...
People who are criticising Midorikawa: Go back and listen to his acting once. Just once. You'll realise just how great he is!
I don't see the issue here? No matter how long it's been since he last worked, Midorikawa is still a great voice actor!
Right? This anime looks like it'll be really funny, too!
