Is this the anime/game franchise where fans are complaining that all the male leads are wife-beaters?

I haven't seen the show but Cordelia looks like a seductress. Monica Rial IMO does not have a sexy voice so that's probably a miscast. Should've cast Emily Neves or Shelley Calene-Black instead.

More Shelley is always appreciated imo. Seeing Maggie makes me wonder....what became of the rest of the Red Garden cast? Apart from Maggie, Chris, Brittany, and Shelley there is almost nothing heard from the actresses who played Kate and Claire.

Chris Patton said back in September that he was in this show. I didn't know they hadn't announced the full cast until now. I'm checking it out because of him lol.

Um. Have you HEARD Monica in Michiko & Hatchin? If I recall correctly she sounded pretty hot in that lol. I'm not saying she's the perfect person for the role because I don't know anything about the show, but she is capable of doing more than just high, annoying voices lol.

I watched and wasn't impressed. Too forced sounding for my liking.

I expect this to be another dub disaster like vampire knight

How in hell did this godawful show ever get a dub? It seriously should be a criminal offense, when Sentai's released MUCH better shows dubless. Evil or Very Mad

I see Maggie Flecknoe is playing the submissive girl with more fashion sense than personality once again. Chris Patton's name being attached to a show like this just makes me sad. The fact that Patton and Flecknoe were co-stars in the Kanon dub... well that just makes things worse.

That being said I never got around to watching this show when it was airing. A terrible Sentai dub would actually add to the unintentional comedy gold. I'd actually be disappointed in Sentai if this dub was actually good.

You don't know Monica Rial too well do you?

When this fails financially, can we finally get a Big O release date Sentai?

I think I just lost respect for everyone who would willingly be involved in this piece of duck poop. Laughing
