Happy Birthday Joshua Seth

If I was to ever do a Top 10 Favourite Anime Dub Performances List, Joshua Seth's Phenomenal performance as Tetsuo Shima would definitely bee in the Top 3 of That List. The Fact that it's One of his Favourite roles is Crystal Clear from the Passsion he Poured into the Performance.

I also love his truly Chilling performance as as Young Knives, his Sincere rendition of Cyborg 009 and from the little I've seen from the Digimon Franchise, He's not Half Bad as Tai.

I do hope he Does some Union based Voice Work. The VA Industry definitely benefits greatly from his Presence .

Happy B-Day Joshua Seth!
Digimon introduced me to his voice work along with the rest of the iconic California dub va's, when he voiced Tai, my other personal favorite va role's by him are Hige from Wolf's Rain and Cyborg 009 / Joe Shimamura from Cyborg 009

Happy Birthday Joshua Seth!

Glad to see you're back voice acting again, this past year.

While I still haven't gotten around to watching Digimon Adventure Tri, but it's just great knowing he's reprised as Tai.

It'd be great if Joshua did more voice acting from this point forward but right now I'll just take him reprising Tai at least.

Either way, glad to have you back.

I am Tetsuo. Happy Birthday, Joshua Seth! He's one of the first VAs I ever heard in an anime (i.e. Digimon Adventure). My favorite Seth performances include Joe Shimamura/Cyborg 009, Tetsuo Shima, Tai Kamiya, Shobu Kirafuda, Mars, Crown Polisher, and chaos.

Taken from an interview Josh did for Digimon Adventure Tri
Are you open to doing any non-Digimon-based voice projects in the future?

“You know, if you’d asked me that a year ago I would have probably had a hard time saying yes, since I’m having so much fun with my other projects and touring. It was surprising for me that going back into the recording studio felt like I had never left. Being all charged up and feeling great, that this was a thing I like to do and people seem to think I’m good at it. It almost seemed like a shame not to do it. I have this skill, and people want me to use it so why don’t I do it?

“I’m a lot more open to it now. The logistics of me actually getting to LA to do a project is a little more complicated. These show tours I do are very complicated and mean I’m flying in and out of cities every day. Even trying to find time to eat and sleep is difficult. But if the right offer came along, and I could fit it into my touring schedule in the right way, then I would be really down for that.”

The Prodigal Son Returns!

Welcome Back Joshua Seth, back to Digimon and to voice acting.

I know it's probably a one time thing with him returning as Tai but I'd love it if he came back to voice acting permanently, Heck I'd even be fine if he wasn't doing anime at all.

RIP old Jiang Wei. Did he not reprise his role because he was cut in 6? Shame.

@Theroux Joshua Seth didn't reprise because he quit voice acting.
said at 9:47 PM on Mon Apr 25 2016
@Nightmare Crusher What happened was that he was getting paid less and less in anime dubs (case in point, his Crown Polisher in the Spongebob movie paid him more than all of his Digimon roles combined), which goes contrary to his belief, which is that anime companies should spend more money on their voice talent. Too bad that will never happen due to the anime crash forcing companies to hire cheaper, non-union alternatives.

Oh god, he came to my school for a hypnosis show and I did not recognize him at all. Until he used his Tai pitch and nonchalantly said he was a voice actor I then recognized him....and then started fangirling....keeeee!

Good to see Josh do something Digimon related again even if its fan made.
He also admits if he is asked then he will return to do Tai again in Digimon Fusion, only if he's asked though.

Happy Birthday Joshua Seth but I do like Taichi in Digimon Adventure

Happy late birthday, Joshua. I've found your performance as Tetsuo quite fascinating and compelling since my first time hearing it, and I hope there's a chance you may re-enter the acting business sometime in the future.
said at 9:05 PM on Wed Dec 11 2013
@PsychicVoiceSpy Both Wikipedia and Anime News Network list his birthday as December 2nd. Hm...

Happy Late Birthday Josh. You were fantastic as Taichi, Tetsuo, Jiang Wei, Dio Eraclea and Hige.

Joshua did a good job voicing Dio in Last Exile. The character went from being rotten, to kind of likable, to tragic during the 26 episode series.

After reading his info, sounds like this guy was only in it for the money.

@RNB Bit rude of a statement, isn't it? Whatever the case, you can't blame him. If you're a voice actor, constant work isn't always guaranteed, so it's understandable that he'd want to have enough to make a living and then some or be a bit disgruntled by low-paying employers or lack of residuals. This especially applies to anime, particularly non-union dubbing, which many VAs have stated does not pay very well. Whatever the case, you can tell in interviews that Josh is proud of his voice acting work and had fun while it lasted, so to make a judgemental statement like that is very rude.
said at 1:09 PM on Wed Jul 24 2013
@NCZ Pretty much this. From what I've heard from him in interviews and such, he has a son who's only a few years old. He may be a touring hypnotist/mentalist entertainer at the moment, but there's a chance that he'll eventually settle down back in California so he can be with his son more often as he gets older.

If that happens he may consider doing more voice work, which would be awesome.
said at 9:48 PM on Mon Aug 19 2013
@NCZ It's also rude to jump on one's case like that.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Well he needs to learn respect. The four letter word is blocked, but i have a pretty good idea of what he said.
said at 1:26 PM on Wed Nov 6 2013
RNB sounds like an idiot. If he had made the rude statement that got him banned (again) at the exact moment he got on to NCZ for getting on to his case, it would have been understandable (sort of since he's a hot head) but the fact that it's days later getting on to NCZ makes him sound stupid. Well no offence to him but it kinda does.
said at 4:30 PM on Thu Nov 7 2013
@Ross123 Well I agree with what NCZ said in the first place. I know Joshua Seth is not just in it for the money. And yes it does make him sound unintelligent to drop a four letter word after he told NCZ to get of his case.
said at 2:08 AM on Fri Jan 30 2015
@Ross123 I'm surprised you are in this page considering this actor mainly voice Japanese work(I think Spongebob Movie is the only America work he done)

Happy birthday, Joshua Seth.

He definitely was memorable for his roles in Digimon.

I thought his Tetsuo was fantastic. One of the reasons why I preferred the newer dub of Akira.
