I wish they could've gotten Aya Hisakawa and Michie Tomizawa back on board but I'm so thrilled that Kotono's back :'D Though I hope T?ru Furuya can come back too :3 He's been at all the big announcements, which I'm taking as a good sign >.> x x x

Tomizawa is retired now. Hisakawa is still very active, though, so I'm surprised they didn't get her. I'm wondering if they'll bring back Han Keiko for Luna. She was very good. It would be awesome if they'd bring in her daughter, Megumi.

@findtheakarun I know she's retired but apparently she came out of retirement for a role in 2011 and there were quite a few people speculating that she might do the same for what is, arguably, her most famous role. Not only is Hisakawa active, but she's still working for Toei, which makes the decision not to bring her back doubly strange. Keiko was a great Luna, but as someone who was never as massive Luna fan, I'd welcome a fresh approach. It'd be very cute though, if this daughter voiced Luna! :D What has she been in? I've never heard of her before >.< x x x

@ash3070 Wow, I didn't know Tomizawa came out of retirement. Han Megumi is relatively new as a seiyuu, but she's had minor (so far as I know, I've never seen any of these series) roles in Yu-Gi-Oh, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, and quite a few other things. She voiced the title character in the Japanese dub of Carrie, and got a main role in the latest PreCure season. For someone who started in '11, she's had a good bit of work.

Hooray! Casting! Kanemoto is known for cute roles so I'm not sure how well she can pull this off, but I think she'll manage. Sato will do well, I'm sure of it. Koshimizu is one of my favorite seiyuu, playing my favorite senshi, so I'm very excited about this. I don't know much about Ito, but I think she's pretty well-suited to Minako. And of course Mitsuishi is a goddess. <3 Great casting list. I'm very excited! ^^

I haven't heard of any of these seiyuu before, but I looked up Sato and was very impressed. Her performance as that lightning girl was JUST what I'd imagine Reito be like :3 I saw a clip of Kanemoto as one of the Cure girls and she seemed to do the quiet, shy voice pretty well, so I think she could do a good job. From looking up Ito, I haven't seen anything that screens 'Minako' but I'll reserve judgement for now :/ I couldn't see much for Koshimizu though :/ What has she been in? x x x

@ash3070 Koshimizu is known for rather boyish roles, which works perfectly for Makoto. Wikipedia lists all her roles, look for something you recognize: http://en.wikipedia(dot)org/wiki/Koshimizu_Ami
