It's a shame that Richard isn't utilized by anime and video game companies anymore nowadays. He did a phenomenal job as Kenshin.

His latest role is a reprisal of his character, Izumo, from Shippuden.

Very underrated actor. He's great as Kenshin, Vega and Legato.

It's also pretty cool that he's the nephew of Rita Hayworth.

Happy Birthday Richard Cansino!!

It's a shame he doesn't appear in as much voice over work like he used to, hope he earns more work sooner than later.

I'm really sad they don't use him more. He's actually pretty fantastic. And, I love his Kenshin.

@ConfusedPhantom Richard got overshadowed by other VAs as anime companies began searching for cheaper alternatives, most notably Liam O'Brien (he would most likely voice Kenshin today), Vic Mignona (both of them voiced two characters) and Yuri Lowenthal

This guy is the REAL Kenshin voice as far as I'm concerned.

Happy Birthday Richard Cansino!

I haven't watched much of Rurouni Kenshin aside from a few episodes but from what I have heard, he sounds fantastic as Kenshin Himura. He has a cool icy voice but could still handle his light-hearted and humorous moments. His Legato Bluesummers is very cool and very intimidating. Its a shame he hasn't been in as much as of late but hopefully things will turn around for him, considering how so many anime dub veterans are slowly making comebacks this past year.

@Autovolt Ditto, I sure hope he will do more Anime dubs soon, given that we saw the return of Sandy Fox, Lex Lang and Megan Hollingshead in Anime dubs this year.

I really hope he reprises his role as Kenshin Himura if this new Kyoto arc gets a dub.
