Well... I feel that since they got the real Bayonetta voice to come and do this everything else should be good for this.

I hope things go well for this. I am looking forward to purchasing this.

Grey DeLisle in an anime. Am I reading this right? Grey DeLisle is in an anime! Damn, FUNimation! You're on a roll with these cast reprisals (a change from a couple years ago). Hopefully you'll stay that way. I really hope they get the Dangenrompa cast back.

As others mentioned she was in Afro Samurai not to mention one of the pre-Funimation Shin Chan dubs.

I'm sure they are many cartoon & video games VAs that would like to do more anime (even if it pays a lot less); they're not oblivious that anime VAs are generally more popular e.g. Crispin Freeman: "My friend is jealous because nobody cares that he does the voice of Porky Pig"

Plus there aren't a lot of conventions that invite non-anime VAs as guests unless it's superhero themed (San Diego Comic-con) or Transformers (Botcon)

And since most anime is non-union the opportunities are rarely available. Sure they are Disney dubs for Ghibli movies but TPTB end up casting A-List celebrities, so real VAs have to usually settle for bit parts in those dubs.


As for the upcoming Danganronpa anime dub, I actually didn't like the video game dub... I would rather see Funimation recast it and do it in-house

Looking at it, there seems to be only one change of actor with the voice of Enzo. Thats... actually really surprising. Good job Funimation.

not exactly,Enzo was voiced in the game by Chick Vennera(Ferret in Static Shock and Pesto in Animaniacs.His role in Animaniacs sounding like Joe Pesci was actually the reason that made Platinum cast him for the game.)but in the movie he's now voiced by John Kassir(gotta love his crazy laughters,the Crypt Keeper and the clown boss from Dead Rising are proof of that.)

Well Funimation does have a fantastic rep for tracking out the original voice actors/actresses to reprise they're roles so I'm not suprised.

Ikkitousen: Great Guardians
Ikkitousen: Xtreme Xecutor
Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail

I'm pretty sure this is why it's taking so long to get Hellsing Ultimate 9 and 10 out and released with the whole Geneon thing they had to deal with and tracking down the original voice actors to reprise their roles.

Anyways, I'm glad Hellena Taylor is returning to voice Bayonetta Very Happy

an interesting coincidence is that Hellena Taylor voiced Zorin Blitz in her debut episode of Hellsing Ultimate,but when the rest of the series was dubbed by Funimation,they couldn't get her back for some reason and she was replaced by Rachel Robinson(she was the only recast when Funimation took over the dub,though,so it was fine)thank goodnes this time they got her back for Bayonetta.She may not be a big voice-actress name,but I like her as both Bayonetta and Yomiko Readman(even though she didn't voice her in the OVAs,where she was the real focus.)
