Every otaku should know what a seiyu is, you know. (i think it means Japanese Voice Actor)
My favorite seiyu is Aya Hirano also Kaori Fukuhara looks pretty too XD. aand Kaoru Mizuhara

I'm not that much into the voice actors, but one voice I really liked, was that of Edward Elric, from Full Metal Alchemist of course. I looked it up and it was Paku Romi who did his voice. She's female and has done a lot of voice acting: Tōshirō Hitsugaya from Bleach; Teresa from Claymore; Ganta Igarashi from Deadman Wonderland; Ken ichijouji from Digimon adventure 2; Nana Osaki from Nana; Temari from Naruto. She even did a pokemon: Zoroark in the film Pokémon: Zoroark: Master of Illusions. others: Tao Ren from Shaman King; Abe from Spice and Wolf 2.
She also did a large amount of video game voice acting. Iska from Soulcalibur Legends.
I love how she yells 'Aru!!!'(Alphonse) in Full Metal Alchemist.
Well, that's enough for now XD

I have a few faves actually;
Mamoru Miyano - From Light to Takuto, Okabe, Kento, Moondoggie and a few others.
Mamiko Noto - Kotomi, Hell Girl, Slug in Naruto, Crazy chick in Canaan and others.
Nana Mizuki - Although I prefer her songs to actual voice work it's impossible to dislike Moka, Fate, Kirihara and Hinata.
Michael McConnohie - For his work as the communicator in Haibane and the detective in Samurai Champloo alone, so awesome.

Hoshi Soichiro, who voiced Masaru in Digimon Savers. He's just that badass!

Maaya Sakamoto, ever since watching Escaflowne and hearing her play the lead role. Her voice is unique and beautiful.

Miki Ito, her voice has such a wide range. She can go from being calm to crazed, and young and old characters; I always recognise and like her voice when I hear it.
Sayaka Ohara is very good as well.

There are a few Seiyuus that I enjoy (Aya Hirano, Nana Mizuki, etc), but there is one seiyuu that basically stands out from the rest of them and that's Minami Takayama. She voices Mithos Yggdrasil (Tales of Symphonia), Conan Edogama (Detective Conan), and Hao Asakura (Shaman King) respectively, and she also has quite the amazing singing voice as well. n_n

Ayako Kawasumi. She seems to play roles in a lot of my favorite anime... Akari in To Heart, Miu in Piano, Nono in Hotohira, and others that aren't coming to mind right now xD
I've gotten to where I can recognize her fairly well if she's in an anime I'm following.

I don't watch much anime in the original Japanese, so I'm not really good at identifying seiyuu. I am quite fond of Aya Hirano, Minori Chihara, Chiwa Saito, and Ami Koshimizu, though. Norio Wakamoto's also awesome.

Norio Wakamoto; he's like a Japanese Brian Blessed.
