So anon, I've been wondering for a while... When a manga is made into an anime, does the creator get to choose who will voice each character?
I remember reading Natsuki Takaya say that she was fine with the cast chosen for Fruits Basket, meaning she actually wasn't able to pick the seiyuus herself. Well, I can understand that companies can't just hire anyone, but are the creators able to choose from between a group or something at least?
I'm asking because sometimes you hear voices that don't suit their characters at all, and I always wonder "Was this really how mangaka-san imagined character-san to sound like?"
If the answer is their opinion doesn't have much weight, isn't it a bit unfair? As a fan of a character, I'd like him to sound as he was originally meant to.
