Mardock Scramble OVA Main Cast Announced, Hayashibara Megumi Stars

According to the show’s official site, Hayashibara Megumi will take the lead role of Ruun Ballot in Gonzo’s upcoming Range Murata-designed three part Mardock Scramble OVA. A glance at the teaser reveals a voiceover that (assuming it’s her) sounds a lot more like Rei than anything we’ve heard in awhile, and with the blood pouring down the gun barrel bit at the end there (not to mention the repetition of the phrase “I love you… I love you… because I love you, I want to break you…”) we may be heading for a nice little head trip here. Certainly a title I’ll be keeping an eye on.
Speaking of head trips and Hayashibara Megumi, according to her Japanese Wikipedia entry She’ll be starring as Paprika in the 2007 Madhouse/Sony theatrical production of Paprika. I’m glad to see she’s still doing seiyuu work after all these years; she’s certainly a master of the craft, and could teach a lot of these recent upstarts a thing or two about it.

    I missed Megumi so much. *Sniff*
    Good to have her back. Good thing I was already looking forward to Mardock Scramble. This is a nice bonus.

    She was certainly one of the more distinguishable voices. ELLE LAGU!

    Hayashibara Megumi ftw! I was just thinking about her the other day actually. She’s still been doing a trickle of work – voices on Pokemon and such. Would be nice to see her get back into more roles though. Back in the mid to late 90s she was like the reigning queen of seiyuu.
    Now if only TV Tokyo would get it together and give us a fourth season of Slayers! DRAGU SLAAAAAAAVVVVEEEEE!!!

    Ruun’s character design is astoundingly hot. I’ll have to give it a watch just for that.
