To be more direct he slices them up and sometimes finds it funny to feed them to his guests, serving it as exotic beef or steak. His voice is very monotonous. He's one of those people whose speech characterizes them as ice-cold sick in the head psychopaths.

Name: Yuudai Shibasaki
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
uu or "You Die" is one of Ken's peers in rank. He leads the Mulholland crew. He is a very emotional person. He's a family man and struggles with the danger of something happening to his family or himself. He spins up problems in his head and often talks about it with Ken. Later on in the story he has mental breakdowns when things get heated and he cries many rivers for Ken. His voice needs to be emotional. The voice actor will need to be able to semi-cry. I don't need immense emotional breakdowns for the record, because I know it's hard for many. Speech needs to give away sadness and panic though.

A young made-man part of the Scarfone Crime Family, whom inherited his rank from his dad's. People look up to him simply because of his stripes, not his authority. He has a young spirited mind, is quite the cocky individual and often worries about non-routine situations. He's going to lose his shit several times, so it'll need a voice-actor able to depict emotions of betrayal.

A skipper for the Ichimonji-Kai. Ken Takeyoshi is a fierce Amerasian man with a temper. He is often seen as boring and emotionless, and easily loses his shit.

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why does my MP3 not upload?
We understand that some users are getting errors when uploading MP3 files. Certain encodings will not be compatible with the upload code. Originally Audacity saved MP3s worked at the time Casting Call was written. However the software may have changed the way it saves MP3s. At an unknown future time, the process will change where auditions will be recorded and saved directly on the site. In the meantime, please ask fellow members who have success with MP3 uploads how they are saving/encoding their files. Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
• How do I contact members cast for a project?
You can contact members using Private Messaging feature available here in the forums.
