Happy Birthday Patrick Seitz!

Easily one of my all time favourite dub VA's and for great reasons. He has this awesome deep voice that can work for just about any character hence why I have so many favourites roles from him including JP, Ira Gamagoori, Laxus Dreyar, Sky High, Ragna the Bloodedge, Simon Brezhnev, Kunzite, Isshin Kurosaki, Captain Bravo, Charles Beam, Germany, Sloth, John Titor, Ugo, Shozo Tadokoro, Silverbolt, Soichiro Kuzuki, Franken Stein and Dio Brando.

It also helps that he works back and forth between LA and Dallas....how he does it all, I have no clue but I'm glad he's able to make it work.

Happy Birthday Patrick Seitz! And Happy Saint Patrick's Day.

Fantastic job playing many great roles through the likes of Ragna, Kunzite, Laxus, Franky, Sloth, Scorpion, Gamagori, & Germany.
I'm glad you're reprising your role as Ragna for BlazBlue: Alter Memory!

I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm harping on this matter, but he should do more work in western animation.
said at 9:19 AM on Tue Feb 10 2015
@Troodon2 Yes, it's annoying. It's also not his fault. It's a known fact that Romano and friends are biased against VAs who primarily do anime.

@AntiSabat666 Source?

@AntiSabat666 Not gonna lie, I'd be very curious to know about this too. I can't say it's that far fetched though. Anime voice work has always had this stigma of being "lesser" work.

@AntiSabat666 Can you verify this?
said at 2:17 PM on Wed Feb 11 2015
@AntiSabat666 If that was actually the case then explain The Legend of Korra.

Korra had Stephanie Sheh and Richard Epcar in recurring roles and Travis Willingham and Barbara Goodson voice in a few episodes.

@AntiSabat666 The fact that some LA-based actors do more anime work than prelay work has more to do with those actors not being in a union and choosing to do series that aren't covered by the unions that most LA actors work under. Not that they can't do prelay, but it's just harder for them to get that kind of work without the extra push that unions tend to give

Just for clarification, Naruto is covered by a union, which is why it can get guys like Fred Tatasciore and Steve Blum going by his real name. Stuff like Cowboy Bebop, on the other hand, is non-union, so if any unionized VA wanted to work on it, they'd have to either go uncredited or work under an alias, like Blum did as "David Lucas".

You should probably do research on the subject matter before you go and make such ignorant commentary.

@Autovolt Let's not forget Tod Habberkorn.
said at 5:19 AM on Thu Feb 12 2015
@Troodon2 Oh yeah, Him too. How could I have forgotten about his western animation debut?
said at 9:43 AM on Thu Feb 12 2015
@CatsTuxedo I'm aware of all of this. I don't think anybody knows more about labor unions than I do. HOWEVER, it still doesn't change the fact that MOST modern anime VAs almost solely do anime and even IF they do have SAG cards(or are ficore, which is most of them) still don't get cast in mass western shows. Adding on to the fact that union dubs last year totaled 2, there aren't many dubbed anime that are done union anyway.

Also, remember that Bebop and Big O BOTH upgraded to union later down the line in regards to movie and second season respectively.
said at 10:27 AM on Thu Feb 12 2015
@Autovolt A few examples doesn't really disprove my point. The fact is that those who primarily do anime are underrepresented compared to in Japan where voice actors do both domestic and US animation.

@AntiSabat666 Because in Japan, all animated VO is done as ADR. In anime, the animation is done first. The voices are done later using ADR. Obviously dubbing an international cartoon is the same process, and I'm pretty sure games are also dubbed.

The situation is totally different than it is internationally, where pre-lay is the standard method in the animation process.
said at 10:54 AM on Thu Feb 12 2015
@NCZ Exactly, when doing pre-lay work, the sky is the limit.

You have more time to breath, and act physically, not worrying about matching the flaps (Ironically the original Japanese VA's an animators also have characters talking while NOT matching the sync)

When doing pre-play, you talk like an actual person, who has to take time to breath in between words, and go crazy with your vocal cords.

And Patrick Seitz has the potential to let loose as a voice actor without the restrictions of ADR.

@Troodon2 I get the point of what you're saying, but to be blunt I find this viewpoint somewhat condescending. ADR and pre-lay offer their own benefits and each have their own very different challenges. To say that pre-lay is "better" than ADR is a bit insulting to all of the voice actors who have mastered it down to a science.
said at 11:16 AM on Thu Feb 12 2015

Oh no, I don't mean it that way. I'll admit while I favor home made animation over anime, that doesn't mean I think anime and adr's are inferior to western animation and pre-lay voice overs, I'm not a jerk... Well ok I can be a bit of a jerk...
But I'm completely biased against anime.

That's why I like Cowboy Bebop, IGPX, Attack On Titan, and the Miyazaki movies to begin with.

I reckon he would make a great replacement voice for Broli from DBZ if Vic Mignogna was ever unable to voice Broli.
said at 10:45 PM on Tue May 28 2013
@Ringworm128 You mean Broly?
said at 3:10 AM on Tue Jun 4 2013
@pokemastanumba1 Well technically the correct spelling would be ブロリ Either way is a correct, you could technically also spell it "Brori", "Buloli" or "bloli" I choose "Broli" since he's name is a pun on broccoli where as Funimation chose to romanize his name as "Broly".
said at 11:10 AM on Wed Jun 5 2013
@Ringworm128 It's more than likely just a lack of foresight on the translator's part, though it is worth noting that it hasn't been corrected since, even though a lot of DB-related movies and specials have been dubbed at least a couple times.
said at 2:43 PM on Sun Aug 26 2012
I love this guys work. He has had some great roles. Kenpachi and Isshin in Bleach who could not love those characters. I thought he was brilliant as Onishi in Texhnolyze and just to dub such an amazing piece of work must have been a thrill. Rido Kuran was an awesome character and now Crow. He just gets better and better. His script credits are also quite impressive. I particularly like his work on Hell Girl.
said at 10:47 PM on Fri Aug 17 2012
Patrick Seitz has been quite impressive this year with his noteworthy performances as Crow from Deadman Wonderland and Herschel from The Sacred Star of Milos. He is bound to get a supporting actor nomination at the next BTVA Awards.
