Ears. Blown.

Oh my! I only just realised, serendipitously, that the voice actress who plays Kaname Madoka in Puella Magi Madoka Magica is the same person who plays the vampire queen Mina Tepes in 2010's Dance in the Vampire Bund - which I reviewed rather lavishly here.

DITVB, and Mina in particular, made a huge impression on me when I watched it, despite being (by any objective measure) a flawed piece of work as a whole. I'd known it was a Shaft production and that Shinbou was director, but hadn't thought to check the cast list. I wonder if that voice in any way imprinted itself on me so that I subliminally recognised it in Madoka's, despite the huge difference in the two roles?

Obviously I'm going to have to rewatch DITVB as soon as conveniently possible...
