Most other English credits are not available at the time of this writing

There seems to be a pretty complete list of both staff and talent on the Encyclopedia page. According to this article, for some reason this already ran on Netflix in Japan with the English dub and English subs, so I assume that's where the credits came from.

Apparently Jack is played by Crispin Freeman, and I don't think I've heard him in anything since Hellsing, so I might have to give it a look just for that.

That's been updated a lot since I wrote the review Friday night. At that time there were only a couple of names listed for the English dub.

I thought the agent character sounded like Crispin Freeman, but I was only about 80% certain and didn't want to speculate, especially given that his other anime roles in recent years have been very limited.

Smurfs rule! Toads Drool!

That being said, nothing in the review moves me to check out the show.

Oh cool! Me either, it indeed feels like it's been a long time. Was going to give it a shot as I like scifi/mystery/agents type shows and I agree this is another reason for me to do so if he's in it.

I watched the first episode and it wasn't bad but it felt like every other Netflix sci-fi anime which is a problem I have with a lot of these "Nefflix Originals." I sometimes feel Netflix thinks that anime fans will watch any show that's dark and angsty with a sci-fi setting and that we don't need things like characters that have emotions or a story with substance.

The first episode didn't convince me to watch the rest of the show, but I agree with Theron about the CG animation quality. I was particularly impressed with the facial expressions and how the shading on the characters' faces made them look three-dimensional and not drawn on a flat surface. Craftar is a studio to watch for, and I wish they had worked on Ultraman.

He's also been in all the recent Fate animes, Durarara and God Eater! But yeah I definitely get excited whenever I see him on a cast list!

Entire subbed first season is up on Netflix (US). Watched it all in 2 sittings. Themes have been done before, reminiscent of past anime shows, series. Liked it enough to be looking forward to Season 2 should it ever get produced.
