Wind Waker is fun at parts, but there's a lot of sailing and it was a kind of confusing (I've only played it with my friends, I don't actually own it.) The sailing is boring though. I'm not a huge video game person, though; besides Zelda the only games I like are the Sims and the Civilization games though that's probably because I enjoy creating virtual worlds.
As for my favorite voice actors, for seiyuus I like Mamoru Miyano, Norio Wakamoto, Romi Park, Aya Hirano, and Rie Kugimiya. I've also liked Jun Fukuyuma in the roles I've seen him in, but I haven't watched as many shows in Japanese. In English I like a lot of the same ones you named but I would have to say my favorite voice actors are Steve Blum, Vic Mignogna, and Laura Bailey.
Random question, have you ever seen Avatar the Last Airbender or the Legend of Korra (the sequel series)? If you haven't you should try them out, they're very anime-inspired and they're great, though Avatar is better. Anyways the creators are huge anime fans (especially of Cowboy Bebop, they always drop nods to the series and others in the show) and they got Steve Blum to voice the villain of the Legend of Korra and he did a great job.
That's nice you got that for your friend :) Who are your favorite voice actors/seiyuus by the way?
The only anime series I own are Cowboy Bebop and FMA Brotherhood, because both aren't on Netflix (it used to have half of FMA), and they were hard to find so I just figured I would buy it. I haven't actually re-watched them since I bought them, though; the most re-watch I've done is I showed a few episodes of Bebop to my friends who have never seen it. I typically only consider buying series I can't find on Netflix or Hulu which is why I haven't thought about buying the first FMA, Ouran High School Host Club, Trigun, Princess Tutu, etc, because they're fully available on both streaming sites. Of anime movies though I own quite a few more, mostly Miyazaki movies, though sadly not Princess Mononoke even though it's my favorite.
I own Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess, but I've played Wind Waker before too. Yes, Fi is the most obnoxious sidekick; she stops fights because "Master your hearts are too low!" Ugh. I did like Midna, though, she was helpful without being annoying and she actually had a personality. I haven't gotten the chance to play Ocarina of Time even though it's said to be the best Zelda game; one of my friends (also an anime fan I found out) owns it and claims it's the best video game he's played.
Oh and I forgot to mention...you play the Legend of Zelda?!? I shouldn't be surprised considering how big it is among video game fans. Ghirahim would be an unexpected cosplay I think (he's a great boss though I thought.)
That sounds like it was a lot of fun :) And that's cool that you got the movie autographed, maybe if he goes to a con I want to attend I'll take my FMAB dvd with me (that's all the potential signing merchandise I have...)
I think this summer I'm going to Anime Expo in Los Angeles with my sister and maybe my friends, and my sister is thinking about cosplaying as Haruhi Suzumiya but she's still unsure. Johnny Yong Bosch is going to be at that one too, I'm not completely sure on anyone else attending though.
I HATE anime elitists (elitists in general are annoying though.) I understand they love this obscure series and might get peeved that a series they believe isn't as good is more popular, but that doesn't make their opinion more accurate or correct. It just goes down to people being immature and not realizing that not everyone has the same interests or tastes. I actually have heard of that series before but I've never seen it.
Np, (If you didnt notice we have the same first part of our user names) ;)
