Matthew Mercer is the perfect Demand. Recently finished the second half of R's redub up on Hulu, and I was really impressed.

@1dbad Matthew so far has voiced three characters who were originally voiced by Kaneto Shiozawa.

@Dee15gon I always find it interesting when that happens, since it makes them seem sort of like the English equivalent to that VA.

It's amusing to see Mercer cast as Diamond, seeing as he also voices Zato-1 (another Kaneto Shiozawa role).

I heard a rumour that Christopher Corey Smith is going to voice him.

I think it could work.

And you're right!

@Autovolt @UK-Otaku He ended up getting replaced by Matthew Mercer due to breaking the non-disclosure agreement. (he confirmed he was playing the role via Tweet (which has since been deleted) and apparently at a con announcement)

@1dbad Yeah I heard about that. while it is a shame Christopher lost a major role like this, I can't help but think Matthew Mercer is a far better choice for the role in every way.

@Autovolt Agreed. Turns out my original guess was wrong though -- he had gotten the ok to announce it but the voice director changed her mind at the last minute. Chris had already recorded a few episodes as Demande, but the voice director felt something was off with his take and decided to go with Mercer instead. Apparently this kind of thing has happened with a couple of other dubs before.

God, I LOVED Robert Bockstael's epic voice in this role. It fit way better than Kaneto Shiozawa's take did. If he doesn't voice him again, than Troy Baker would be a natural choice.

@Galactic_Cyrus I listened to a clip of the old dub of Prince Demand/Diamond's voice.

Yeah Robert's voice sounded really good...I was surprised.

anyways considering that Troy Baker isn't doing anime anymore. I think Cam Clarke would be amazing as Prince Demand.

@Autovolt Why's Troy not doing anime anymore? And does Cam Clarke still do anime?
said at 5:34 AM on Sun Jan 18 2015
@Galactic_Cyrus Troy has become so busy and successful with video games like The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite and so many else that he's dropped out of anime. Matthew Mercer has taken over his ongoing anime roles like Kanji from Persona 4 and Yamato on Naruto.

Well Cam still seems to dabble from time to time like voicing Professor Xavier in the X-Men anime and was on Monsuno (which I think was an anime?) granted that was like two or three years ago.

I have no clue in all honesty if Cam would be available but if he was, he'd nail Prince Demand for sure if he did a more regal sounding Doc Sampson.

I'd also suggest Crispin Freeman for Demand also but I'm sure the Viz dub is non-union so It's highly unlikely.

Whoever they do cast, I'm sure it will be some unexpected and probably good.

@Galactic_Cyrus I had another thought for who could voice Demand.

How about Marc Diraison in his Tokiomi Tohsaka voice from Fate/Zero? It sort of sounds a bit like how Troy Baker could have done it.

@Autovolt If they can get hold of him, then yeah, that would work!
said at 8:55 AM on Mon Apr 6 2015
@Galactic_Cyrus Kind of hilarious now that you suggested Troy Baker long ago since Matthew Mercer is now Demande.

Well Either way you still got Kanji from Persona 4 to voice him. :p
