Default Re: Hajime No Ippo Dream Cast

Decided to re-read the manga for the umpteenth time and let my instincts help me make a dream cast.

Ippo Makunouchi - Lucien Dodge
Mamoru Takamura - Steve Blum (not a perfect match to Koyama but Steve's got the swagger)
Genji Kamogawa - Steve Kramer
Masaru Aoki - ??? (I literally have no idea who could be a good English Aoki)
Tatsuya Kimura - Crispin Freeman
Manabu Itagaki - Billy Kametz
Ichiro Miyata - Yuri Lowenthal
Ryo Mashiba - Liam O'Brien
Kumi Mashiba - Cristina Vee
Takeshi Sendo - ???
Alexander Vorg Zhangief - Grant George
Naomichi Yamada - Sam Riegel
Eiji Date - Kirk Thornton
Iwao Shimabukuro - Patrick Seitz
Ryuhei Sawamura - Keith Silverstein
Minoru Fujii - Tony Oliver
Kazuki Sanada - DC Douglas - EDIT: WTF this was official??
Kyosuke Imai - Ed Bosco


Will add more later, I'm only around chapter 120 right now.

A few comments. First of all, besides the irony of us sharing a ton of actors but with roles swapped around, I find it particularly hilarious we had the same choice for Itagaki. I guess it was just too obvious a pick.

Secondly, fun fact, I actually did originally consider Crispin Freeman for Kimura before changing him to Mashiba and giving Kimura over to Kaiji Tang, although I do really like the idea of Liam as Mashiba; something like his Asura could certainly work. Staying on the topic of the idiot duo, yeah, don't blame you for not knowing who to pick with Aoki. Like his fighting style, he is a very gimmicky character with a voice far too specific to cast him to be of any ease. Even with Ben Diskin I was kinda pushing it.

Finally, the only choice here that's kinda eyebrow raising to me is JYB as Sendo. I dunno, maybe I'm forgetting something but nothing about him really screams "Overconfident Punk from Osaka with a soft spot for children". Closest that I can think of is Kaneda from AKIRA and even that's kinda pushing it. Otherwise though, pretty good cast. Grant George as Volg is particular is something I can't help but hit myself for not thinking of.

Yeah, fair on Sendo. I thought JYB would work but then when I was reading the championship fight again the voice didn't exactly click in my head, lol.

Wataru Takagi is too distinctive and Aoki is too weird for an English voice to come to mind easily. Peter Doyle was ok in the dub of the series but the dub of the series is pretty bleh so....... not a high bar.
