They made an anime about Josh Keaton?

@GreenGoblin75 If you didnt notice, the narrator's name is "Keaton Yamada". Wonder why, tbh.

I just realized that Master Keaton was created by the same guy who did Monster.

That's why the character designs look so similar. Look at Keaton and Tenma....they're almost identical looking.

@Autovolt Yeah, from what I've heard, he tends to recycle certain designs (or distinct design elements) between series, but hardly within any one series. I have to say I'm quite fond of his capacity for such a diverse-looking cast regardless.

@Autovolt You should check out Yawara. Its Naoki Urasawa's first official work and breakthrough.

This one is an oldie, but its a real gem.

Despite the unnecessary silly accents, I loved how this dub went out of its way to use every voice actor Vancouver had to offer and then some.

@Sahgo Not every one, but the sheer variety in the cast is impressive nonetheless.

Anyway, I haven't seen the dub, but considering this series takes place around the world, I'd think the use of accents is justified.

@CatsTuxedo I kinda-sorta agree, but... it's just... they're *very* over-the-top and cartoony, and don't match this show that's everything *but* cartoony.

Plus, it doesn't always make sense. The title character is Japan-born, England-raised and... speaks with a mostly-American accent. His daughter, England born and raised, does as well. So does his father, Japanese through and through, and yet some Japanese characters-of-the-week speak with Japanese accents. The list goes on.
