What was that again?

The only seiyuu that are in that song are the ones for Misato, Rei, and
Asuka.  If there are any other seiyuu in that song, it would have been
during the choral part (and I really doubt that).

Ogata Megumi (Shinji's seiyuu) did sing in Tentou Mushi no SANBA along
with Iwao Junko (Hikari), Miyamura Yuko (I think, don't have the CD with
me right now), and I think Maya's seiyuu (I don't know the kanji for her
name, I only recognized the 'mi').

I'd say the biggest contrast would be Ranma-chan (and that was spelled

Ogata Megumi played Princess Esmeraude in Rayearth.  Big change O_o
She usually does do the more masculine roles though.

I need to watch X again, I remember Kamui sounded really wimpy (he was
voiced by Toji's seiyuu, Seki Tomokazu).  Junpei from Elf wo Karu
Mono-tachi is a big contrast from Touji also.

I think part of it had to do with the Usagi reference.  Anyway, Mitsuishi
Kotono had done older roles before Evangelion.  I haven't seen much of
her stuff outside of commercially released and a few fansubs, but her
only really childish voice that I know of is Usagi (well, Chibichibi too
^_^;;;).  Other roles are closer to her real voice (except for Koume

Misato's 29 BTW.
