I do not like his Kirito, Meliodas and Kaname. But he makes up for it with his portrayal of Rin cuz to me, that is a performance that surpasses Usui Takumi.

Happy Belated Birthday, Bryce Papenbrook.

Wow, to think he is 30 even though he sounds like he is still in his teens.

Anyways, congratulations on becoming a father for the first time ever. :-)

I know it's two days late, but I would like to wish Bryce a Happy 30th Birthday.

He does a good job voicing Meliodas (Seven Deadly Sins), Rin Okumura (Blue Exoricist), Charlie Blood (Blood Lad), Adrien Agreste / Cat Noir (Miraculous Ladybug), Masaomi Kida (Durarara!!), Kaname Isaki (A Lull in the Sea), among many others. Congrats on becoming a father to your first child with his wife.

Happy Birthday Bryce. My first anime was Sword Art and when I finished it I wanted to check out more anime but didn't know any. So I looked up your credits and soon discovered a lot of great shows from Attack on Titan to my all time favorite Durarara. I also loved you as Makoto Naegi, Rin Okumura, Clay, Shirou Emiya, Nagito Komeda, Kaname Isaki, Staz, and Meliodas.

He really does get way too much flak. He's an excellent VA as Kirito, Masaomi, Rin, Eren, Staz Caesar and more. I wish the best for him, his Wife and their Daughter. He's a very sweet and nice guy too.
said at 8:32 PM on Thu Oct 22 2015
@BioZero216 He is a very talented man, he seemed to be in one too many MC role and sounding kinda similar for almost every role though which I find is a shame as some of his other roles at least sounded a bit different from time to time and he is versatile like his Masaomi Kida could emote very well
said at 5:52 AM on Fri Oct 23 2015
@HienFan Honestly, I don't care if he reuses the same voice. As long as it fits the character and he puts emotion into it, that is all that matters, IMO.
said at 6:21 AM on Fri Oct 23 2015
@BioZero216 Did his Rin Okumura ever get any better? This clip sounds like he's always angry and I have not seen the dub but I didn't like him as Kirito at all, seems kinda jarring next to his original voice
said at 6:26 AM on Fri Oct 23 2015
@HienFan I'd say yes, especially during the climax. Rin is an angry character, but it's considered Bryce's best role and Bryce himself said that he related to Rin most of all of his characters.
said at 5:06 PM on Tue Nov 24 2015
@HienFan Whoa there, don't diss his Kirito voice, sure he sounds kind of off at first, but by the second season he definitely improves.

@BioZero216 I know i might sound like a broken record repeating this again, but I'm going to do this again so that everyone understands. Just because you don't mind the fact that Bryce is used regularly, doesn't mean everyone else is going to feel the same way.

I loved his roles in rune factory 4 and Bravely Default
said at 6:54 PM on Sun Jun 28 2015
Kirito: Had such a relaxing voice that I never got tired of hearing.

Eren: Brought the intensity up to 100.

Masaomi: Super fun & Super serious.

Rin: Super charismatic and hilarious his voice just fitted the character so well.

Red: He convinced me it was a ten year old talking instead of a 30 year old.


Clay: Brought the same amount of fun from Masaomi and Rin.

I know he will bring the same amount of fun and emotion with all of his roles in the future.

@TheAdapter forgot to mention his performance as Staz almost made me die of laughter
said at 9:54 AM on Sun Jun 28 2015
I really like this VA and all, especially with Kirito, Rin, Zidane, Guan Ping, and Henry, but I just don't think he fits as well with Makoto Naegi.
said at 7:36 AM on Sat Jun 20 2015
Anyone else think that if Seraph of the end gets a dub Bryce should play Yūichirō Hyakuya?
said at 7:53 AM on Sat Jun 20 2015
@Nkg96 It is halfway dubbed now, but I do agree Bryce would've been an interesting Yuichiro.

Yuichiro is instead played by Micah Solusod.
said at 11:05 AM on Wed Jun 10 2015
He's going to do the voice of Naegi. This should be interesting.

I think he should voice Blake Ash in Dragonar Academy, Kenji Kazama in D-Frag!, and whenever they get around to dubbing the Fairy Tail OVAs he should be the FUNimation voice of Haru Glory.
said at 3:31 PM on Tue Jul 29 2014
@Matthew Robinson That sounds like a cool idea. However, I am still holding out hope that Yuri Lowenthal would voice Haru in the Fairy Tail x Rave OVA (if he does want to do it)

He has to be a nominee for best male voice actor for Anime this year. Perhaps the winner and deserves it too.
said at 10:17 AM on Sun Dec 1 2013
Just for 2 big roles? I don't think so, though he'll probably be nominated for male lead for one of them.

I don't think he's Male VA of the Year material but he certainly has been doing well for himself.

He's come a long way from his rock-bottom days in Arvintel dubs. Aniplex USA/Bang Zoom definitely changed his anime career for the better.
said at 11:14 AM on Sun Dec 1 2013

Having 2 big roles from popular shows that have been released this year, another anime title broadcasted on Cartoon Network which is popularity in toy sales, blowing your voice out for Call of Duty: Ghosts, invited to many conventions throughout the year.

If 2 big roles can do that for a person, then I can say "well done to you sir".

He's having a very impressive 2013. Influx of convention appearances this year. Like to see this guy in motion capture/performance capture roles. I don't know he has on camera experience, but if he were to blend his martial arts background with on camera stunts, he would be a good Power Ranger. Imagine a future Devil May Cry game with performance captures from Reuben Langdon, Daniel Southworth and Johnny Yong Bosch, reprising their roles and throw Bryce Papenbrook in the mix as a new character. As Dante would say "This party's getting crazy! Let's rock!"
said at 12:15 PM on Thu May 15 2014
@akersaotome I remember he posted a picture of him doing some facial-capture work. I think he posted it early this year, can't remember when exactly. But I agree it would be totally cool for him to do motion-capture work/performance capture roles. Strong possibility for him I'd say
said at 3:06 PM on Tue May 20 2014

It would be very cool if Bryce did land motion capture work and having the likes of Reuben Langdon and Daniel Southworth to help him out. I know he doesn't have theatre or on-camera acting experience; however, that didn't do Troy Baker any harm with his non theatre, small on camera acting experience.
