Well I guess I have made my personal choice for choice for the Persona 5 mc or Potter-kun.

I don't quite understand the appeal many fans have for Vic Mignogna or Todd Haberkorn (possibly because of the fact that they perform many of their fans' favorite characters), but Josh Grelle has shown to be insanely skilled and polite to his fanbase, even if he doesn't have the best characters.

Izayoi is finally on this page! My younger brother and I love Problem Children so much. We watched all of the episodes during Thanksgiving break. Seriously, check it out, it doesn't disappoint at all.

Did anyone knew that he was the original voice for Simon on Gurren Lagann, back when Sentai Filmworks (formerly ADV Films) had the rights to the show before they lost them to Bandai Entertainment. still, even if it was for only five episodes, according to him, I'm pretty sure he enjoyed what little time he had to actually perform the role.

I'll never understand the hate this guy gets for being Armin but honestly I think josh did an awesome job as Armin. Dub version of AOT was good overall, not great but good=)

I was watching Fairy Tail to hear the new dubs and I find out he's the voice of Blacksnake. I honestly didn't see that one coming.

Happy Birthday Josh, You really rock as Armin, Ludger, Sima Shi, Kenichi, Ox Ford, Ichika, Yukiteru Amano and Sadao Maou.

Happy Birthday, Josh. Ever since I've heard him as Kenichi and a few minor roles, I knew that he was going to stand out later on. And he did a darn good job as Armin, Ginoza, Oscar, Ludger, Victor and Thomas.
said at 8:54 PM on Sat Oct 4 2014
I may have cried laughing at the fact that Armin and Ginoza are voiced by the same actor
said at 11:00 PM on Mon Sep 29 2014
Just heard him in neverending nightmares.
Haunting stuff

@Spiralpower1620 Yeah, only he and a few others are capable of screaming in horror like that.

Enjoying him so far as Ludger, although I wish he could speak more.

@Jared Delgado Ludger can actually have full dialogue in a New Game Plus runthrough.
said at 7:25 PM on Tue Jul 15 2014
Kenichi, Akihisa, and Armin. His three best roles and their all relatable, caring, and fantastic/powerful followed by charismatic, authentic, and amazingly talented voice.
said at 10:41 PM on Mon Jul 14 2014
This guy did an excellent job as Armin no doubts

When I first heard that Josh would voice Armin, I was doubtful that he could pull it off.

But after episode 5, I laid my doubts to rest. He was excellent in that episode, and I can't wait to see how he fares in the future episodes.

I'm so happy that he's armin. To my opinion, I was gonna think that armin's voice would sound a bit wierd, but then I heard this guy do it and to MY opinion, I thought he did excellent.
(Especially his scream in episode 5, HOLY CRAP!!)

He won me over as a fan with Armin. His scream in episode 5 was so intense.

I know right?! His scream was insane O_O

@PinkyBunnyChu I can say that his scream surpassed the original's no lie.

I pray he does a good job as Ludger

Extremely disappointed that he's Armin. My second favorite character isn't going to be done justice.

You have so much emotion in your voice dude, INSPIRATION I HAVE!
said at 8:52 AM on Fri Mar 14 2014
huh, dissapointed that you're not eren. but armin is a great role too. hope everyone will be happy about micah or aaron being eren. it'd be pretty weird if todd haberkorn gets csasted.
said at 9:02 AM on Fri Mar 14 2014
@spider-batmanx12 Oh god I hope it's not Todd, The fact I haven't heard of any of the voice actors for AOT means I'll be surprise and interested in hearing them. But Todd is overrated now.
said at 9:10 AM on Fri Mar 14 2014
@BlackSwordfish2419 i like todd and i heared him in characters like ren but his voice just doesn't fit for eren. maybe jason liebrecht or any other LA VAs mike mcfarland hires to work there. i'd be surprised if it is yuri lowenthal like everyone wanted considering the fact that it looks like his LA work is very busy
said at 8:23 AM on Mon Dec 23 2013
if josh moves to LA, he'd be perfect for some additonal voice roles for marvel. he'd be perfect for:

mutants being interrogated by humans

mutants in the brotherhood

mutants in the x-men academy

students in midtown high




super skrulls

the purifiers

hydra agents

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents

H.A.M.M.E.R. agents

the goblin gang

kingpin's goons

spider slayers



the zodiacs

A.I.M. agents


the hand



symbiote hosts

i mean josh seems like a marvel guy
said at 5:56 PM on Tue Feb 25 2014
@spider-batmanx12 Could serve as an alternative to Yuri Lowenthal, given that both have a very similar voice range.
said at 8:04 AM on Wed Feb 26 2014
@Domayv I think he sounds like Jason spisak. But it would be interesting to see how he interacts with yuri seeing as how he is almost to the point in moving to LA.
said at 11:13 PM on Sun Dec 22 2013
i hope he voices eren jaeger in the future
said at 12:11 AM on Mon Dec 23 2013

Wow REALLY! You've only suggested this at least 20 times around this site...

You're going to be heart broken if he doesn't get the role aren't you?

As for what I think, sure he might be a good fit but I wouldn't be surprised if a lesser known VA gets the part instead.

Grelle is a great actor but his voice is also very recognizable. Assuming ADR Directors and Producers care about their work it wouldn't be wise to have too many well known characters sound similar if they're voiced by the same person.

Kenichi Shirahama is without a doubt Grelle's most famous role so far and definitely a breakthrough for his career (no I'm not making this up; this is the consensus among fans of his and even he's acknowledged it).

If Grelle's Eren is just going to sound like Kenichi, for me it makes his Kenichi performance less unique and special.

Though if Grelle does voice Eren hopefully it's something new. Despite my username I'm actually not that easy to please for most things. :)
said at 8:11 AM on Mon Dec 23 2013
@Mr_Ecchi_Man well, yeah. i mean from the work i've seen, josh is the only one in my mind for funimation to give eren so much power and emotion and i might be right if funimation might make josh the next big thing in funimation like todd haberkorn.

heck, josh is also a big fan of the anime so i believe he'll capture the emotion of eren. and if he doesn't get the role instead of the newbie, i'll be freaking surprised if he voices either armin or levi eversince future diary was announced
said at 5:52 PM on Sun Mar 23 2014
@spider-batmanx12 Actually, Bryce Papenbrook got that role. Grelle got Armin instead.

Might want to change the page name soon, since I've heard he's currently undergoing gender reassignment (he's been open about being transexual for quite a while) and now goes by Mina Marie Grelle.

@Spirit Macardi
Already aware of the situation but last I heard he's going to remain as Josh Grelle for the time being since the costs are very expensive. If there's any progress in the future, changes will be made to this page at that time
said at 6:35 PM on Wed Jul 24 2013
Wonder how to he divides his time between Funimation and Sentai Filmworks? Its good that he's getting video games work, whether its in L.A or in Texas. His acting over the years has matured to a point he could be doing prelay, playing multiple characters.

This dude almost sounds Like Steve Staley he is awesome
