I'm very much hoping that YamaChii will be lending their voices again in this show.

I really loved how they dubbed it ^___^

I've never really been interested in the Smurfs, not English and much less in Japanese... but having Takamina in it may actually bring me to watch the Japanese version. ^^

I love the smurfs, I used to watch them everyday as a kid. I really wanna watch the Japanese version too, I wonder how Takamina is gonna sound like, it would be so cool if only she could speak English and participate in the English version.

Smurfette - I think she'll be a great smurf, her voice even sounds a little like it in real life.
