if the show ever introduces a nega allmight they should get sean schemmel to voice him
said at 10:36 PM on Sun Jun 11 2017
@Abdullab Sean is heavily underutilized in FUNimation outside of Dragon Ball franchise, this should be a good opportunity for him to be active in this franchise.
said at 3:33 AM on Mon Jun 12 2017
@SteelEthlan yeh other than dragon ball, sean hasnt been in another funi dub series since samurai 7 , due to the fact he lived in New York at the time which was still preety active in the anime industry back in the day so travelling to texas was more time consuming until he decided to focus more of his dub work in new york and only returned to db when needed and that was a similar case with Kara Edwards as she was more focused on her radio work in NC and only returned to DB when needed before she decided to become a full time va in texas.

now that he is moved to la, it is more easier for funi to get him than he was in NY, while still time consuming but easier.
totally agree with u funi should use the guy more often and if youve seen his resume with nyav post he has done some great work

@Abdullab Sean moving to LA wasn't to focus on doing more anime dubs believe it or not. He actually stated this on Twitter in a conversation with @huzaifa_ahmed

Very possible that he wants more pre-lay/western cartoon opportunities. Seeing him become a regular in anime is very slim at best.
said at 12:05 PM on Fri Jul 14 2017
@Shaun Ince Well atleast i respect him for still reprising goku for all those years, knowing the travel and pay he totally had the right to quit years ago but he still keeps doing it for us.

His recent pre lay work is preety good although i do wish the casting directors would cast him in an action role instead of a comedic one not that i dislike it sean is a preety funny if u give him the right material but seriously pre lay casting directors give him an action role.

For those wondering why Dave Trosko is taking over Present Mic from Sonny Strait, it's only temporarily because Sonny recently got stuck with laryngitis (I blame Usopp mostly). He's still around, but he's recovering from it as we speak. According to Wikipedia, it only lasts of minimum 2-3 weeks, but since Sonny is very valuable to FUNimation directors, they aren't risking it, which is why Dave is replacing him for the entire Broadcast Dub. When Season 2 gets its home video release, he'll definitely be back
said at 12:13 AM on Thu May 4 2017
@itsmedeadpool oh good thing, i guess they arent risking it because with Dragon Ball Super on air(Funi`s cash cow) as Strait came back for one of his iconic characters thats another reason i think.

Sad to hear that Juli Erickson & her husband, Grant James moved and she is no longer playing Recovery Girl. She is being replaced by Luci Christian(Who I think might also get replaced, because she already plays Ochaco who is a major character in the series). As for Juli and Grant, I know how old they are but I will still miss hearing them in dubs.

@darknessflamegeass Wait. What do you mean by
"She is being replaced by Luci Christian(Who I think might also get replaced, because she already plays Ochaco who is a major character in the series)"

Are you saying that you believe Ochako is going to get a new English Voice Actress because Luci is taking over recovery girl? Not to sound harsh, but you're sounding ludicrous.
said at 9:43 PM on Wed May 3 2017
@itsmedeadpool Nah what I'm saying is Christian might not stay on recovery girl for long, because she is Ochaco, who is a major character.
said at 10:25 PM on Wed May 3 2017
@darknessflamegeass Oh... Nah these stuff happen a lot in the industry. Maybe, but it's uncertain exactly whether Colleen will make the decision. If Luci can provide the consistency Juli provided, then she's an excellent replacement.

@Abdullab I actually hated writing that, but if I have proof of a fact, i won't keep it from the BTVA. Sometimes they aren't appreciated. If it isn't a public announcement, then they don't care.

I feel like a lapdog trying to please to no avail.

There's a blurb right next to the comment box that says:

"Note: We're aware some pages are incomplete. Image hunting takes time. Please request credit additions here (link to the forums)."

The comments are meant to discuss the title in question. They aren't the place to request credit additions, page updates, or go "X VA just confirmed Y role on Twitter". This has always been the guideline.

There's multiple of us, we all specialize in different areas and we do our best to keep things up to date, but this is a volunteer thing we all do in our free time. So it's also important for people to remember it's not the most important to always rush to be first, and try to be patient and understanding. Things are almost always on our radar but it's simply a matter of time and priority with regard to what gets updated and when. That's all there is to it.

@NCZ So do I need to add it in the 'Who's Voice Is This?' thread?

If yes, then sorry for not noticing before.

It's fine. Don't worry about it.

Anyway, to be honest, with regards to anime credits I would say it's something not to worry about. The main admin who specializes in anime pretty much takes care of/is on top of everything, so given time all will be accounted for.
said at 12:11 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017 So, apparently they had to recast Aizawa with Christopher Wekamp for season 2. I'm not too surprised about the recast since I do remember Alex Organ mentioning in the Commentary for Psycho-Pass that he has another career (I don't remember what it was though) and it made it difficult to do voice acting in anime. That considered I was honestly surprised when they got him for Season 1. Even though I haven't seen the dub yet this still kinda sucks, but I am interested in seeing how Christopher will handle the role when Season 2 is released.
said at 2:47 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017
@Ichigo341578926 that does suck, but Christopher has the experience behind him to succeed. I don't know what Alex's other career is, but my guess is it might be theater (can't find anything else). So my guess is he is unavailable because he's on a theater tour to somewhere. And speaking of theater, if Major Attaway had a part in this as well, Colleen most likely would need to have replaced him as well. Why? Because he's freakin rockin it in NY in his Broadway debut as the Genie in Aladdin!
said at 2:51 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017
@itsmedeadpool Oh, I remember seeing an interview with the cast for that, but I didn't see the name of the actor who was playing Genie. I didn't realize that was him! Wow!
said at 9:28 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017
@Ichigo341578926 I hope they have him re-dub Aizawa's lines in the Blu-Ray release. I heard that Robbie Daymond will be doing that for the few episodes when Bryce Papenbrook replaced him as Sorey when he was sick.
said at 10:48 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017
@BioZero216 I also hope they will, but that'll depend on the producers and Colleen Clinkenbeard. For example: During the recording for Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, Jason Liebrecht voiced the Hermit in the first season of the show. But after his motorcycle incident, he was unable to record the second season and was replaced by Eric Vale. The producers couldn't wait on him to recover because he was out of commission for a whole year and Kenichi sold too well for FUNimation to delay the release of the second season. If Alex is making a return during the broadcast dubs in a sudden miraculous style and is available for the rest of the series, then Colleen can make the call.

Even if she's given the green light to allow Alex to record all Aizawa's lines for the Home Video release, my hunch is she will stay put with Chris because he is in the area and is also easier to call on, and his voice sounds pretty similar to Alex's to keep the consistency (to be honest, I didn't know it was Chris until I saw the cast announcement and I thought it was Alex recording with bandages covering his mouth). But I can be wrong.
said at 5:53 AM on Thu Apr 13 2017
@itsmedeadpool Turns out, he was unable to reprise due to schedule conflicts, according to Colleen Clinkenbeard. When the Blu-Ray dub is recorded, which will have a more lenient schedule, he may return.

Seeing as he's a Yale drama major, I can't say I'm surprised he didn't have the time.

Probably my favorite anime this year. And at the moment my favorite dub. I was really surprised with the casting of Justin Briner and Clifford Chapin but they really made those roles their own.

Also the most pleasant surprise casting was David Matranga as Shoto. He has the perfect voice for that role and it has me more excited for season 2.

Really excited to find out who will be playing Stain, Gran Torino, Endeavor, Mei, etc come season 2.

@Unknownsage13 From what I could hear from the new episode, Endeavor sounds like Patrick Seitz.

Very enjoyable anime right here. Even if My Hero Macadamia isn't without its more cliche tropes, the show also proves to be an example showcasing that familiar themes are not always bad. It's an entertaining watch and a half equipped with recognizable as well as striking character designs, a good score composed by Yuki Hayashi, and it can essentially tell a viewer that - yes, regardless of whether or not you have a Quirk - you can still be a hero. PLUS ULTRA!

FUNimation's English dub track is outstanding, too; almost as listenable as the original, I'd say. Justin Briner really displayed a lot in the way of promise as Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, and had great chemistry with Chris Sabat's All Might. The other VAs whom comprised the cast pretty much performed nicely, with Josh Grelle as Tokoyami, Sonny Strait's Present Mic, and Monica Rial's rendition of Tsuyu having caught my ear in particular. Colleen Clinkenbeard is as good an actress as she is a voice director.
said at 8:46 PM on Wed Nov 30 2016

I agree with most of what you said. Music really stood out for me. This anime didn't shatter any new ground that Tiger & Bunny and One Punch Man hadn't already done but it still has its own identity instead of being a lame copycat.

I liked the dub for the most part; my only complains minor as they are would be the continual use of musical chairs for broadcast dubs especially the casting of fellow ADR Directors (guess it's too hard to resist when they're literally walking distance/a booth away). Some of them started out as VAs and that's fine if they're actually good but others aren't giving anything remarkable and an actual VA would be much better.

Also certain VAs I'm no fan of (either they're just not good period or past their prime) but overall the good outweighs that bad.

Was this anime overhyped AF? Yep. Was the dub a masterpiece? Nope. But was it enjoyable and better than the average broadcast dub? Most definitely.

I think with only a month left this year I can probably say this is my dub of the year. The cast in general was fantastic and I have no big complaints for the voiceover. As many have said before and I agree completely, Briner as Izuku was perfect. Can't wait for a second season to see who they cast for Hero Killer Stain!
said at 7:24 PM on Wed Nov 30 2016
@FUNiman Also for curiosity's sake was Nomu not dubbed over or was the actor not credited?

This was a pretty great show in general, from its handling of classic superhero tropes to just a ridiculously great protagonist. And the action scenes were hype as hell.

Really loved the dub too, definitely one of Funi's best broadcast dubs so far. The casting choices can be a bit too safe or obvious (especially with so many complaining to silly levels about Sabat playing All Might) but everything just worked so well.

Plus, Justin Briner completely owned the role of Izuku to a T. He's really rising up as one of my favourite voices from Funimation now after this and his roles in Grimgar and Garo.
