Yokuwakaru Gendaimahou: The Perfect Duo

Currently finished: Episode 3

Certain actors/actresses work well together, I think the same applies to voice actors/actresses in animes too.

In Yokuwakaru Gendaimahou, Haruka Tomatsu (戸松遥) and Ai Nonaka (野中藍) make such an interesting duo playing the two main characters: Yomiko and Koyomi. Just imagine Corti from Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica (or if you are not familiar with Polyphonica, Lala from ToLoveRu although here she sounds more like Corti than Lala) clashes with Fuko from Clannad. Not only they are two of the most characteristic voices in the industry, the personalities in their voices work so well against each other, it makes this anime much more interesting than it would have been without them.

On a separate note, I think they went just a little bit overboard on the fan service. Right now it's still at a acceptable level. I hope they don't go push the limit on that.
