Default Most Overused Funimation Voice Actors

If you have watched Funimation's dubs most likely you think their overusing some voice actors. Some that I think are overused are Monica Rial, Brina Palencia, and Brittney Karbowski.

The reason Funimation VAs seem overused is because all of Funimation's talent is based in Texas, which has a much smaller talent pool than Los Angeles. The way I see it, it's just Funimation being economical with what they have rather than intentionally overusing them.

In a way yeah they're overused and as CatsTuxedo it's not the largest talent pool but their actors are good at voice acting and who are we to complain.

Though I think Texas gets too many anime dubs and not enough (or any) is given to Ocean in Vancouver.

I agree with you in a way but sometimes I wish they used more talents. But when they announced the cast for the new Ikki Tousen I was surprised who was casted. But don't get me wrong I love Funimation.

Todd Haberkorn. For a while I felt like almost every single time I read a new one of their cast lists he was there. Some of the time he doesn't fit the characters he's cast as in the slightest. He's a good actor, I loved him as Death The Kid (even though I thought he wouldn't be able to sound nearly cool enough), but man, Funimation over-casted him like crazy for a while.

CatsTuxedo brought up a valid point; it's not really that the same VAs are overused, they just don't have as much of a talent pool to choose from. But I do agree, there should be more English anime dubs from other regions (New York also comes to mind, as there's both TPCi and NYAV Post).

I agree that there should definitely be more dubs from New York and Ocean, but it's probably going to take a little shift in the industry for that to happen. Right now, Funimation is essentially the top dog when it comes to anime, and for the time being it's probably going to be mostly them, to a smaller extent L.A., and a dub from Ocean and NY from time to time. I hope dubs get to be more diverse again before too long, though.

I kind of think that Cherami Leigh is being a TIIIINY (Ity bit) overused. I love her half to death, she's my idol. But I'm thinking FUNimation's giving her more roles than she can handle.

I get what everyone is saying about Texas having a limited talent pool, but let us not forget it is not because people aren't trying to get into the business. There are plenty of people trying to get into the business, but Funimation is not hiring them, but to be fair to Funimation nobody is hiring new talent. You can not say a company is limited if the company won't hire talent.
