Happy Birthday David Lodge!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Kenpachi Zaraki (Bleach)
2.) Dr. Schumann (Monster)
3.) Kaztano (Durarara!!)
4.) Midnight Express/Rail Racer (Transformers: Robots In Dsiguise)
5.) Angel Gozen (Buso Renkin)
6.) Dr. Butterfly (Buso Renkin)
7.) Superman/Kal-L (Superman: Red Son)
8.) Giga (BoBoBo-Bo Bo-BoBo)
9.) Inspector Egon Weissbach (Monster)
10.) Calythos (Justice League Action)

I find it interesting that David recently voiced Heatwave, Chase and Dr. Morocco in Transformers Rescue Bots: Disaster Dash. I hope to hear how he sounds in all of those roles. I bet he's a pretty fitting voice match.

David is one talented dude great as Jiraiya, Kabal, Ling Ton, Superman, Calythos, and Kenpachi Zaraki

David will always be the best Jiraiya and Kenpachi Zaraki, enough said. There was so much character and charisma in both of Lodge's performances as the two, respectively.

Cool New Photo of David Lodge.

I agree with you guys, he absolutely MADE Kenpachi Zaraki.

I don't really care that much about Bleach, in fact I only watched up to the end of the Soul Society arc and have no interesting in watching it again any time soon but It's a real shame he left the role but man what he did do with the character was pretty amazing. Bringing a nice bit of viciousness with a really cool sound.

He was also great as Dr. Schumann, Inspector Egon Weissbach, Midnight Express, Rail Racer, Kaztano, Red Son Superman, Giga, Dr. Butterfly and freaking Angel Gozen.

Angel Gozen is a true testament to the range he's capable of. I mean could you seriously believe that Gozen's voice came out of Kenpachi's mouth? That's very impressive.

It's a shame we're slowly seeing him exit out of anime but if he can get more work in cartoons (specifically superheroes or Transformers) I'd be OK with that.

@Autovolt I wouldn't quite say he's shifting away from anime, just that maybe the new guys don't call him?

I mean, he's only got one cartoon not cast by an anime director.

Not to mention, he did original animation prior to his dubbing work.

That's a nice new picture of David Lodge. It does suck that he isn't voicing Kenpachi anymore, his voicework as Kenpachi was the best thing about the Bleach English dub.

I love his Kenpachi. Not only did it sound brutal. His laughs were incredible and full of energy. He also provided a sense of wisdom with him and I LOVED IT.

@Hulkg3 Yeah, I recognized him immediately there. I mentioned this in the forums but I feel like he'd be a good fit for Cid Highwind, actually.

@NCZ You have point, it's good to know he's still doing good work. I will say this. Studio Pierrot announced that the anime for Bleach will return when the final arc in the manga ends this year. So when that happens, VIZ will for sure get the rights to dub once again and of course have the original casts to reprise there roles. My hope is that VIZ asks david to reprise his role as Kenpachi as long as the fans demand it, hopefully. And of course make sure he gets right amount of pay he'll sign for.

@Hulkg3 I checked the ANN. There's no such news on the manga ending this year and abosulely no news on the anime coming back. Stop making up rumors and getting our hopes up.
said at 1:31 AM on Thu Aug 6 2015
@Redeye64 Well that's what i read. But the part about the Manga coming to end is the truth.
said at 3:05 PM on Thu Aug 6 2015
@Hulkg3 Where did you read this? Sources?
said at 11:30 PM on Thu Aug 6 2015
@Redeye64 Sources are in these links. But these are rumors. So i do believe the manga almost finished according to the rumors and when it does, Studio Pierrot or Tokyo TV or VIZ will make the announcement, it's just not gonna be this year. So let's not get our hopes up and wait what happens.

Ok so, after leaving Viz and coming back they decided to let him keep the roll of Jiraiya but they're still keeping him away from one of his best rolls, Kenpachi? That makes zero sense and I've kind of lost respect for Viz Media.

@Zabel There is no Bleach anime for him to be in right now. The final arc is still ongoing in the manga, but the anime is done(for now at least) so how are Viz keeping him away from the roll I must ask?

I love David as Kenpachi Zaraki and hope to hear him again as Kenny as soon as possible.

I really hope David returns to voice Kenpachi Zaraki in the English dub of Bleach because Patrick Seitz simply isn't cutting it as Kenpachi!David has been with the character since the beginning of the series it just doesn't feel right hearing someone else voice Kenpachi..I hope we can get an official confirmation from David himself that he will be returning to the role soon.
