Y' great as I imagine the Japanese version of the show is...I can't help but be annoyed at "dubs reuse VA's", when Hideo Ishikawa did *two* notable characters here (as opposed to "random civillian")

You'd think that, if they got these A-listers, they'd have the budget for all individual actors per character.

How would have thought that two of the voice actresses (Wesluck and St.Germain) would have gone on to do roles in MLP.

@argentlupus Not that unusual; actors in Vancouver's talent pool happen to do a lot of shows together since they're pretty tightly-knit.

Without a doubt the best dub Ocean has ever done.

I can't think of one off sounding performance, everyone played their parts perfectly. Kudos Karl Willems, You Voice Directing Genius!

@Autovolt This & Black Lagoon are Ocean's best dubs, period.

Incredible series. I don't know why I put off watching it for so long. I'm glad I finally got around to it. Extremely smart and a lot of unexpected twists.

I was interested in this show but when I watched the video I'LL TAKE A POTATO CHIP AND EAT IT! It summed up the series for me. (Still would like to watch this)

This had such a strong and twisted plot. At first, you think it's going to be some sick horror anime, but then it pulls the rug from underneath you and turns out to be more like a detective show than a horror one. I remember I couldn't wait for Saturday to come so I could watch the next all-new episode, watching L get one step closer to catching Light as Kira

I think I have been on this page for about three hours, playing the theme song over and over again...
