@Plevak Yuri has taken part in non-union works, Xenoblade X, & reprisals for the Persona dubs. Besides, we have Fate/etc to look forward to. Although yes, we definitely do need more union dubs. Sketch mentioned on Twitter that it's totally possible to have more union dubs but we just dont. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

@kb24lol She's largely moved on to just doing prelay and traditional animation work (like Over the Garden Wall and We Bare Bears). The only anime thing she's done as of late was the Disney XD version of Doraemon.

She did mention on Twitter that Aniplex asked her to come back but she had to turn them down: https://twitter.com/TheKristiReed/status/573997218736181248?lang=en

Well there it is, the dub for the 3rd Arc starts up on the 15th with a hilarious message from Darrel, Michelle and Bryce to top it all off. Can't wait to see how it all goes down.

Also the cast list at the end confirms Liam O'Brien is voicing Kine and (while there wasn't any doubt) Kirk Thornton's back as Takashi from S1.

Pretty cool to see a union anime dub again. Seeing as the likes of Crispin Freeman, Kari Wahlgren & Steve Blum are in this dub. Union anime dubs are pretty rare these days, considering most of them are non-union.
DisneyAnimefan1995
said at 9:03 PM on Wed Oct 14 2015
@Shaun Ince I know right, non-union dubs are great, but listening to Union dubs of anime in California is always a delight, regardless if the closures of Pioneer/Geneon and Bandai had an impact during the 2008-2012 anime recession in the California area. Here's to hope that the Anime dubbing industry in California balance themselves on having Union and non-union dubs in the next few years so it won't fall into another recession like last time. But then again, it all depends on the anime title that's in the SAG-AFTRA database or not since like with most anime titles that are dubbed in California they're Non-Union.
Shaun Ince

I don't know what was wrong with Kirk Thornton staying on as the ADR director, I mean Kirk was doing a perfect job...unless they want a new ADR director each season.

Then if that's the case. Tony Oliver needs to direct the final cour.

Yeah, it's a little weird to have the series on its third ADR director but Alex should do a great job regardless. I certainly wouldn't object to Tony doing the final cour, that would be pretty fantastic.

Plus Alex mentioned on Twitter that he marathoned through the whole show before he started work on the Second Arc, and did the adaptive script for the first 3 eps of S1, so he's pretty prepared: https://twitter.com/alexvondavid/status/639515686650253314

Well the US website of Durarara confirmed on the Cast and Crew page that Alex will also direct the final cour/Arc 3: http://www.durarara2usa.com/staffcast/

I have no problems with this even if the idea of Tony handling the final arc sounded appealing. Alex has certainly done a good job on the 2nd Arc and he's definitely enjoyed talking with fans about it on Twitter (and playing guessing games on the new cast members, though its a shame we haven't learned who Jessica DiCicco played and Alex tagged Tara Sands & Melissa Fahn among the cast members in this celebratory tweet when ep 24's dub aired: https://twitter.com/alexvondavid/status/668976096851816448)

Ten's dubbing is already on its way....hopefully Keith didn't break an NDA announcing this. It'd be ridiculous if they recast him as Tom Tanaka at this point.

also please get Jessica DiCicco a role on the show. I know i'm a broken record on this subject but it'd be a waste to not have her in this, especially since its a union dub.

Funny you should say that about Jessica. Her Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/jessicadicicco lists off Durarara2 as one of her credentials. What role she's playing or did play we don't know yet.

But if anything you at least got your wish.
Autovolt
said at 9:57 AM on Sun Aug 23 2015
@JRPictures YES!

I'm gonna make a wild stab in the dark here but considering she's already been cast and they just started getting to work on the dub for Ten.

Jessica has most likely been cast as Manami Mayima, the girl that tried to stab Izaya in the hospital in the first episode of Ten. Based on her recent voice performances, I know she could nail her. also why doesn't the character have a page here?
JRPictures
said at 9:54 PM on Tue Sep 8 2015
@Autovolt
Well the first ep just aired today and Jessica isn't voicing Manami. Alex von David confirmed her to be Erica Lindbeck: https://twitter.com/alexvondavid/status/641472387599368192

We'll probably see what role Jessica has in some future eps anyway but yeah.
Autovolt
said at 9:21 AM on Sun Sep 13 2015
@JRPictures Mikage perhaps? Though to be honest that's an Erica Mendez role if I ever saw one.

anyways Erica Lindbeck was really good as Manami, almost close to what i imagined Jessica doing had she been cast as her. Seriously even if they don't get the exact VA I had in mind for a role, they get the next best thing..ie like Gina Bowes as Mairu.

Finally got around to watching the dub of the second season. Kirk Thornton doing an excellent job as ADR director.

For the most part everyone is playing their part perfectly. I'm glad Cristina Vee was cast as Ruri and Grant George as Chikage. They were perfect as I imagined and GK Bowes who voices Mairu is nearly spot on to the voice I imagined for the role which was Sarah Williams.

Newcomers Kyle McCarley and Brianna Knickerbocker make an excellent debut too.

The only real downside with the dub is that Lex Lang's Egor does not have a Russian accent nor does Dennis and it's weird since Simon, Sloan and Varona all have accents in fact in episode 7 Patrick Seitz drops the russian accent to narrate the episode....I wasn't fond of that but otherwise I really am enjoying this second season both in English and Japanese.

Durarara is one of the few shows that sounds great in both languages. The first episode of the 2nd cour has just aired and I'm really hoping that Jessica DiCicco gets cast as someone in here since she's voicing in Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works.
JRPictures
said at 6:16 AM on Sun Jul 5 2015
@Autovolt
To be fair Dennis didn't have a Russian accent in the first season either. And Simon did the 'dropping his Russian accent for narration' back in S1 Episode 3.

But yeah it was a weird choice not to give Egor an accent. But Lang's performance was still great otherwise.

Looks like Vic Mignogna is Kasuka Heiwajima

@Cat_Z Yep. That's exactly what I said. As much as I like Vic, I think Blake Lewis was more suited for the role.

@EmmyRivaille Same. I mean, don't get me wrong, Vic is an excellent voice actor. However, watching the first episode of the dub, the role just isn't suited for him. It's a more emotionless role compared other roles Vic had

I was not expecting Aniplex to get in on the Broadcast dub action...now if they could do Fate/Stay Night that would be great. :D

I am loving that almost everybody came back and that this dub is the first unionized LA dub since two years ago (Fate/Zero, Tiger & Bunny and Tenkai Knights were the previous ones).

Seeing Lex Lang in this is really cool. He hasn't been in much as of late and I am sure he will be a great fit for Egor.

Also Kirk Thornton is the ADR director for this taking over responsibilities from Kristi Reed. I am sure he will do a great job, he did quite well with the Blood Lad dub.

On an odd note, Blake Lewis posted this on his twitter account over a week ago: https://twitter.com/BlakeLewis/status/571182289121628161 saying he's coming back as Kasuka.

Yet the official cast credits Vic Mignogna as his replacement. What is going on here?

@JRPictures This is very strange indeed...maybe he broke the non-disclosure agreement and they fired him because of that? Hence the replacement?

@JRPictures What is going on here.

It's possible that Vic might have been miscredited with another character...at least I hope.

I haven't seen the first season in over a year now so I don't remember how Blake was in the role but it would suck for him if they fired him for that. I don't think Vic would be a good substitute for him.

@LeDom
That's a possibility. Which would be rather sad if it was the case.

@Autovolt
It might be the case of him being miscredited, though the official site: http://www.durarara2usa.com/character/ credits Vic as Kasuka.

Hopefully either one of them or Aniplex clears up the confusion, that or we wait until the first dub episode see what voice Kasuka has.

@JRPictures
Well the first dub ep came out today and as expected, Vic really did replace Blake as Kasuka's voice.

@JRPictures Holy crap! Lex Lang?! That's a name and voice I haven't heard is YEARS.

@Gaddes Yeah Aniplex is definitely pulling out the stops here with the cast, and the fact they're dubbing this so early.

I'm only halfway through S1 right now, but I'm definitely excited to keep this roll going when I finish it.
