Nice to see most of the cast return even if it was completely expected. Also looks like Leah Clark finally decided to drop the pseudonym. I'm also about 80-90% sure "Kelly Angel" is Brynn Aprill.

I still wonder what happened to Teri Rogers (Akeno's original voice actress).

Heard she's currently inactive in the VA industry but since its just a rumor I heard on here a long time ago I have nothing to back up that claim

I completely forgot she was using one. I guess after Sister New Devil she threw her hands up and said "F**k it" no use in hiding it.

Yeah...ummm......no!!!!!

I don't see any solid proof that Leah Clark and Chloe Daniels are the same person UNLESS someone can prove otherwise.

I'm not certain whether or not Kelly Angel and Bryn Aprill are the same person. MAL lists that they are under "Alternative names", but exactly where do they get their information from?

But I totally expected Josh Grelle to return as the English voice of Issei.

Teri Rogers still lives in Dallas and graduated in 2015 with a Library Science degree. As far as her returning as Akeno, there is the chance she will for the home video release.

I did a tweet that said "Unless a VA admits they played a character under a different credited name, it's best to treat that credit as a separate person (privacy reasons), even if Person B sounds like Person A." The fact Bryn Appril thanked me for tweeting is a possible hint she is "Kelly Angel". There is also the fact that Bryn has been in harem shows before (of note, "Date A Live" and "Absolute Duo"). If she is "Kelly Angel", maybe DxD was more extreme for her that she opted to use an alias.

I could be wrong, but Chloe Daniels sounds just like Leah Clark with a slightly higher voice.

My biggest disappointment is Akeno voice. I didn't like the voice in BorN and it feel like a new character. Yes, Funimation did make a joke about it in the dialogue but it not the same.

Chloe Daniels isn't a pseudonym.

Also Leah Clark confirmed that Chloe isn't local.

After a bit of digging, apparently she moved to New York.

The first season was directed by Colleen Clinkenbeard (don't know why she didn't use her pseudonym Carmen Smith), the second season by C.T. Anger (apparently it's a pseudonym used by Christopher Sabat), and the third season is directed by Cris George.

I'm not at all surprised that Leah is stepping in. Like other people, I thought during the first season that it was the same person since they sound very similar and Chloe didn't have much else to her name. The simuldub schedule is a pretty big commitment, especially if someone isn't all that active in voice acting. We've seen it before, both with Akeno in this show, and in other series where actors move on, which is understandable since it would be tough to stick around just in case a new season comes along years later.

When I saw that credit, I had a hunch she would stop using the alias for this series other than to simply keep the credits consistent.

That is probably the main reason, assuming that they are the same person. Another possibility is to maybe avoid some flak online for the replacement. Obviously, the recasting wouldn't happen unless the prior actor wasn't available, but people don't always think things through before saying nasty things online.
