Lime-Colored War Tales 04 - Seductive Reasoning
As the Amanohara changes course on its to Lushun, trouble is afoot on the lower decks. One of Sarasa's priceless imported objects has gone missing, so it's time to don some detective garb and do some sleuthing. But the enemy's doing some investigation of their own, and sometimes, blind heroism doesn't pay. And did I do a ridiculously out-of-context screenshot? You'll have to watch and find out.
LCWT is a lot like Soul Link in its voice casting: famous, popular VAs for many male roles, relatively obscure VAs for the female roles. Of them, Ai Shimizu (Momen) is easily the best-known, while Yuka Aimoto (Rinzu) has had no other major roles -- just a couple of bit parts in Canvas 2 and Mouse. It's a shame, as I really liked Aimoto mysterious/soft-spoken/cryptic/Yamato-Nadeshiko/emotionless-girl performance. If she'd gotten more parts, maybe we would've heard more variety instead of having VAs like Mamiko Noto and Kana Hanazawa in absolutely everything.
