HYPE! This is going to be awesome. 2 more PVs to make their way up next month before the airing too.

That OST is fabulous.

It's sad that Joseph is losing Sugita's voice, but Ishizuka is probably going to fit him just as well as an old man. The voice actor has a pretty wild acting range, so I look forward to hearing him!

Refresh my memory: What was the particular reason for Sugita to refuse the role of old Joseph? Did he just not want to do it? Did he feel that doing an old version of the character was too much for his vocals?

I don't mind in the end really. Old Joseph should have a higher gruff pitch like the way he sounded in the CAPCOM game.

By the way, Avdol instead of Abdul is actually not as incorrect as the fans may think. The Japanese really do romanize his name as Avdol.

I believe it was the latter; something about destroying his vocals. He'd have to do an old man voice for 25 (possibly 39 if this goes 3 cour) episodes AND do it well. Like actually sound like an old man, rather than "Joseph pretending to sound like an old man." As much as I love Sugita, I wouldn't be able to take the character seriously if it seemed that way.

Still good cast despite Sugita leaving role.
