Also as a note, to those who don't know, their is no existing soundtrack for this anime, so I had to improvise and take them off of other anime and rework the entire series. Some scenes are similar to the original while others I revamped into my own image. I am hoping I did okay on this!

My critiques for Episode 1:
Crystal as Moka Akashiya (including vampire half):
To be completely honest, when I first originally held casting for this character - I was not sure someone could pull of both the "cute" and "evil" halfs of Moka, their two completley different characters. Many people have good voice acting abilities in that range, but won't necessarily fit both characters. It was a delicate situation. Before Crystals audition, I recieved many good auditions, while some only chosing to audition for only one part of Moka, I truly felt I would have to cast two people. But when Crystals audition arrived, I was impressed beyond belief, not only could she pull of the voice for both characters, her abilities were so excellent, it felt to me, she was made for this character. Not only did she do the character justice by fitting the character perfectly, but her emotions were real, quality superb and overall, delivered a professional performance that if this wasen't labeled "fandub" and if this anime was licensed, I would of believed she was the original, professional VA. As to say - I am in love with her work and I am very happy with the results.
Thank you Crystal for auditioning for my production! I would of truly missed a once and a life time VA if you hadn't! I look forward to working with you in many productions to come!
I also want to thank you for helping me with my production, not only just by providing the voice, but going out of you're way with helping me on the producing aspect and putting up with my pointless ramblings. You're the best! <3
BigTUnit1 as Tsukune Aono and Tsukune's Dad:
To start off, thank you so much for putting up with my annoying emails and being a part of this production. ^^ When I recieved you're auditions, I was blown away. When I heard you're lines, I knew then "this is my Tsukune!" And once you delivered you're lines, you impressed me greatly. You delivered true emotion in you're character. Every line given was so perfect - I never even thought of asking for a redo. The character was done great justice and worked well with Crystals voice. Like Crystal, you were made for this character and I am quite pleased you came along to provide me the voice and be a part of setting the perfect cast.
As for Tsukune's Dad, you were also perfect for the role. Being family in the show, often times we take after our parents, and you showed the similiartie between the two and provided a fatherly voice, different from you're younger Tsukune, but yet the same to show the father and son bond.
Vincent_the_Paladdin as Komiya Saizou:
Now here is a guy who can pull of VILLIAN like it was a stroll in the park. Made for the role! Delivering superb emotion, you went from being the bully to an orc flawlessly, portraying each line perfectly. You're voice is very professional and when I listened to you're lines, I felt you became the character so well, that I could not even imagine another voice doing this character. You had the perfect mixture. Thank you for being my main villian and being a part of this production. I am very pleased with the results and I can't wait to hear what you got for Kuyou. I know I won't be dissapointed.
Brooke Lynn as Nazo Koumori:
The line "OMIGAWD SO CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT!111!!11!!" comes pouring out of my mouth everytime I heard you're lines. I know the original VA was a male, but I felt, with your audition, you pulled off the bat equally to the male VA. It was seriously too cute to handle. You're voice didn't crack or strain, which I know pulling off higher tone voices can do that to some people, and you delivered a flawless performance. Thank you for being a part of this production and doing the character great justice for everyone to see!
Asahina as Shizuka Nekonome:
Asahina is actually my sister, so I don't want people to feel I am giving a biased opinion on this. But I will give it a shot anyway.
You pulled of the character so well! I know you often only do the "cooky" characters because of you're personality and when the lines were delivered, you truly proved why! You're voice is unique and often have that cute anime giggle going on in you're normal day life, you seriously reminded me of this character. It was like the anime duplicate - acted alike and had similiar emotions in the voice, thats why I casted you as her. Thanks for helping me out with her voice and rooting me on with my productions. I love you! *huggels*
Dymatrex as the Bus Driver:
Dymatrex, you are not only an awesome VA but a great guy. When I originally held auditions for the bus driver, I was expecting something similiar to the Japanese VA. Pretty much you're typical evil voice. But when you delivered you're lines, you put a magnificent twist to the character that brought him more to life, I was truly impressed and happy that you pulled it off so perfectly! I felt the bus driver portrayed more of the mysteriously, insane, evil man by you doing the voice instead of just plain evil. Giving it more character and serving him great justice. Thank you so much for being in my production!
Sirius as Tsukune's Mom:
Such wonderful voice acting! You fit so perfectly for the character and made me giggle at her antics. You were able to pull off the motherly, yet a little cooky role so well. Thank you for being a part of this production!
Sonic Heart as Kyouko:
Even though you only had a couple lines, I appreciate you being in my production and taking the time to do this character. You're voice is crisp and clear and delivered a great performance.
Shelene, DJ, Voice_SP, Dymatrex as extras:
Thanks all for being extras (I know I am in their, I mean everyone else hehe)! I know not many people like doing extras, but you took the time to do so, and did so well. You're the greatest!
Also, DJ is actually my husband, I want to thank him for actually taking interest in my hobbies and wishing to be a part of the production. He has been extremly supportive and lovingly puts up with me annoying him every ten minutes when I am working on my projects, with "how this sound?" "hey come look at this real quick!" "you sure I did this right?" "hey -poke- tell me what you think thus far!" x a million. lol ><
Thanks and I hope you enjoyed what I have up thus far! I will get the rest of Episode one uploaded asap. I hope everyone looks forward to the rest of the episodes! Which contain twelive in season one.
I do accept any and all types of criticism! I am a big girl and take it well. :3 No demon girl will appear here! So don't hold back!! I know I made some mistakes in episode one, like with mouth flaps and music (you can hear a click in one scene) and I am hoping to greatly improve with everyone's help. I truly appreciate everyone taking the time to critique and watch this production in the making.
