Practically every female character I have seen in a Japanese anime or manga series is voiced-over by some actress using an extremely shrill voice. While some viewers are sure to find these exaggerated "childish" voices attractive, they have managed to pain my ears so badly I have sworn off watching the shows altogether (even as some story-lines were pretty interesting!). But I am wondering, am I alone in this reaction, or have other viewers found these voices just too painful to deal with?

You make a good point, phillippeengel! Those shows often have great storylines. I just wish those voices didn't hurt my ears so badly :(
The ones that come to mind first are Death Note, Bleach and Fullmetal Alchemist.
I can only speak for the Japanese version (and the fact that I shamefully have not sat down and watched Bleach or Fullmetal). Death Note I have to imagine you're talking about the English version because the Japanese voice cast does a great job.
The Death Note series I watched had Japanese voices with English sub-titles.
Huh? Well I guess I am one of the people who just don't here it.
