I wouldn't mind if Ashi replaced Jack as the protagonist.

I love Tara Strong, but I kind'a wish they got someone new to voice Ashi, like keep Kari Wahlgren from her first non-speaking role in the first episode, or even someone completely different. (like Laura Bailey or Fryda Wollf since they're both rather underutilized in animation)

Only reason I could think why Tara was cast was because of this character's likeness to LLana from Sym-Bionic Titan, but I feel casting the same actress was too obvious.

Not that I mind the cast, but still some differentiating would be more interesting.

@Troodon2 no disrespect to tara her performance as ashi is good but tara is so popular that sometimes you just want characters to go to more fresher talent and it might have been titan fanservice for tara to be casted but still.

I was bummed cus i thought it was kari given she was in additonal credits in ep 53 and tara wasnt credited so i assume it was her but sadly it was tara and in genndy`s defense he didnt intend for ashi to resemble llana.

not sure about fryda but i was hoping laura would get a role in the show, i had a fanfiction idea when i saw an image of laura cosplaying as one of her critical role characters and thought she would be perfect as an archer who combats jack thats just my fanfiction

@Troodon2. I agree wit yall folks ashi is slowly becoming my favorite Tara Strong role but I thought the same thatl it woulda been dope if Kari Wahlgren shoulda stayed as Ashi or someone else thats fresh

@Troodon2 Me personally, I will never tired of hearing Tara Strong give a performance. As of now, she's honestly the only voice actor I know who made me tear up just with her vocal performance alone (Brainiac in Justice League Gods and Monsters Chronicles).

Granted, I see where you're coming from. It's always nice to see lesser known talent get more opportunities to shine. But I truly believe Tara Strong gets all these roles, because she's just that dang good. Her role as Ashi is no exception.

@jonhardwick And he really doesn't care about the pathetic Samurai who wanders around like a mad fool. [Laughs] It's hilarious, really.

I'm glad this is coming back, but I'm going to miss Mako for sure. He really stole the show.

Sorta wish this could've concluded back when he was alive, but there's not much that can be done about that now.

Not only is Phil Lamarr back as Jack, they're saying that they got an impressionist for Aku. So hopefully it turns out ok.

@ConfusedPhantom I'm fairly certain it might be Greg Baldwin. Considering he's filled in for Mako on both Avatar The Last Airbender and the animated Ninja Turtles Movie from 2007.
