I'm realy happy with Sentai right now on bringing almost the whole cast back. Im mostly sad that Touka has a diffrent VA. But oh well, cant be helped.

Unfortunately the original VA for Touka passed away. I'm confident they did their best with casting Genevieve as Touka.

No need to apologize since you didn't know. Judging by the cast list that's out, it's obvious that Sentai did their best to gather the original cast and put some work into making sure it is consistent. Man, they even go Vic back into the studio to play Benawi. Even Jason Douglas is back!

I'm surprised they Vic back, mainly because he mostly works in LA these days. Funimation usually has an easier time because they're a bigger company.

Don't know. But this link was the only thing I could find after the cast list was revealed since I was also curious to see why she wasn't cast as Touka.

Edit: upon looking further, even IMDB lists her dates from 1984 - 2011.

It's about time the OVAs get dubbed, especially since spoiler[ Urutori (the blond angel) finds a baby in one the OVAs, who is going to be a main character in the 3rd Utawarerumono game. ]

I'm surprised they returned so many, especially Kelly Manison who hasn't been in anime in a while.

I didn't know Touka's VA died, thats sad to hear.

That's quite sad. I had no idea at all.
