Tentatively excited.

Someone on Destructoid mentioned that Maaya Sakamoto was responsible for Shiki Ryouga from the Garden of Sinners movies, so she can do Serious Young Woman well... then again, I only ever listened to the dub casts for the SAC series (which I dearly love).

Maaya's a great VA in my opinion. It makes me happy to see how much dedication she gives to the anime biz after all these years.
