Ok....

SOLD! That was TOO funny! I've only heard Ty on Akame ga KILL! as Su, but he sounds great here.

Awesome! Totally unexpected, too. I've only heard Ty in Devil Survivor 2's anime as Jungo, and since he barely talks I didn't get to hear him much. But holy crap, it fits just right.

Though honestly I expected Nozaki to be the last or the second-to-last character they would preview the English dub for. Hopefully this means Sakura will be coming up next.

I remember the Japanese VA sounding more monotone, while this VA has a more "Whatever..." tone to his voice.

AND THAT'S JUST FINE, because I laughed either way! Laughing

I can't wait to hear who they cast as Chiyo Sakura. Still hoping for Juliet Simmons. Smile

That was pretty decent. Of all the VA's we've heard so far I actually think I like Mikoshiba's the least. It's not bad but it just doesn't sound quite right to me. Ty's take on Nozaki is definitely a little different from what I imagined but it works well.

This show getting dubbed makes me wish there was a TV network in the US that would show shoujo and romcom anime. All we get is action stuff on Toonami and the occasional kids show.

Oh...I loved that scene! I'm hoping that Hanabee offer the CE of this series (it's likely they will), as I definitely view this series as one that is worth the extra $.

Okay, I'm not really familiar with Ty Mahany, but he nailed Nozaki!

Also, once again, THIS ANIME PREMIERED IN JULY, NOT APRIL.

Am i the only one that thinks they all sound horrible? They have no feeling in the role and it seems like their voices don't fit their faces at all. I never liked sentai filmworks dubs at all. Especially Akame ga Kill. But this may take the top of the one i hate the most by far.

No, I felt that way, too, and Mikorin's voice sounds incredibly forced. I'm not sure why it's that deep in a fake sounding way. This sounds terrible and I say that as someone who loves dubs and is generally not very critical of them.

I don't know how they could mess up something so simple.

Nozaki`s voice is too young sounding, it`s not dead or deep enough for the role.

Also Mikoto Mikoshiba his voice is goofy and always sounds like he`s just making a joke out of it.

Now with Monica Rial`s voice, I enjoy it for the most part.

You DO know Nozaki's just a highchooler, right? If he sounds young, that's probably the reason. Neutral

There's a time when it's needed.
