Good casting choices. Though I expected a deeper voice for Pedro, Shinichirou Miki can do it.

Rukia and Mustang. OP has a lot of well known seiyuus, Well it's obvious why.

One Piece have pretty much unlimited budget, when it comes to the voice actors.

So you do remember Miki as Roy Mustang, but not Orikasa as Riza Hawkeye?

It's not a matter of remembering. The article lists Mustang as Miki's prior role, but does not list Hawkeye as Orikasa's prior role.

By the way, is there a higher res version of that zou image?

Fumiko Orikasa as Wanda

Excellent choice, definitely most familiar with her as Rukia from Bleach and Seras from Hellsing.

Kanae Ito as Carrot

I honestly wasn't sure who to expect on this one, but I'm sure it will be a good fit. I'm not too familiar with her voice, although I'm sure I have heard her in a few roles, but it's been so long.

Shinichiro Miki as Pedro

I never even really thought about what his voice would be when reading the manga, but this is also an excellent choice, although unexpected. The man himself that I totally identify as being Urahara Kisuke from Bleach, although it's funny that the article lists him as being the voice of Roy Mustang, but understandably so since he's a much more popular character from a more popular anime.

I wonder who will voice Inuarashi and Nekomamushi?

But not when it comes to the animation, it seems.

But the rapid pace of the Zou arc in the manga should make the anime's one-episode-one-chapter approach much more tolerable than certain parts of Fishman Island or Dressrosa in the anime, even if the animation falters.

Some interesting choices, though as the two women have played other characters in the series it's not so surprising to see various voice actors play more than one part throughout the series.
