Just because I’ve seen this many times…
It’s not because Milo’s seiyû is a woman that he is one. In fact, his seiyû herself says that she voiced a male character. ^^ And it’s not uncommon to attribute women seiyû to a male character at all. :)
Was she referring to Milo…
Yes she did. :) on the movie site, in news section, there are little interviews of some seiyū.
She says: “男性のキャラクターを演じたのです” “I played a male character”.
So yep, Milo is a guy in LoS. :)
Yea! I was hoping that was the case, but she didn’t have any male credits before this so I wasn’t sure. That settles that then. I guess my theory they switched his gender to have an established relationship with Camus is out the window. XD
Here’s the entire translation of her speech, made by Archange on the French StS forum. :)
"I played a male character, but I was free in the way to perform him. I put all my energy both when the Bronze Saints come to fight me and when I lose, and I really felt how much the Gold Saints have got a high stature. In all ways, everyone was very energetic."
On your points, considering how much yaoi is popular and strongly associated with StS (first yaoi doujinshi were about StS), I have really a hard time seeing Toei killing one of its popular fan thoughts. ^^;
Okay, now I’m more excited about this. Thank you!
Pfft, it was my pet theory on a possible genderswitch and why Camus and Milo had similar design elements. It would’ve been so funny to me. Like they’re an old married couple or something. Married Gold Saints!
