In addition to Genndy, Collette Sunderman was a voice director on the show as well. Phil LaMarr mentioned it in an interview.

Such a groundbreaking series of the 2000s with it storytelling and great animation and a good and appropriate way to end a great series

well it finally concluded and the show really had a great season 5 glad that genndy provided a good conclusion to this iconic series but the voice actors did a great job.

ofcourse there is phil lamarr as jack and now potrays him better than ever as he landed the gig he was very early in his va career but still potrayed him great nontheless but now with more experience he potrays him better than ever.

thene there is aku, a bummer that mako cant finish his characters and often rarely few voice matches do justice to their predecesor and then there is greg baldwin i was happy that he got to succed mako again though it took time for his aku to grow on me but nonetheless it was a good potrayl and i really liked the behind the scenes story of how mako`s daughter and her son showed up to watch him perform.

ashi who is voiced by tara strong the criticism was because how popular tara is still i like it, she delivers a good performance of a girl exploring the new world.

then there is grey delisle as the high priestess she really delivers a thrilling performance as a charcter who would do anything to please aku man she really is a big aku fangirl

finally tom kenny as scaramouche this is propably one of the most hilarious characters kenny played in recent years not only was he a good combat to jack but his attempts to tell aku about jack losind his sword are pretty goof bummer aku killed the guy.

glad the story was finally concluded and props to adultswim and toonami for allowing this to happen now all we need is sym bionic titan

Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable EVIL!
But a FOOLISH samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me.
Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time, and flung him into the future, where my evil is law!
Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!

And it is officially done after 5 seasons....

This show gets better and better! Even after all these years :D Episode XCIX was so amazing. This was in my opinion Tara Strong's best perfomance as Ashi. I got to hear so much of her vocal range that I never usually got to hear from most of her other roles.

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.
Abdullab
said at 4:55 PM on Mon Apr 17 2017
@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.

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.
