Wow, Johnny Yong Bosch in the lead role? That's enough reason for me to check out the dub.

And here I thought Please Twins! would be the only anime where JYB is anything close to a harem protagonist.

Seriously though, this series sounds mean-spirited as all hell, but this casting choice is honestly making me consider watching it, if only as mockery bait.

I wasn't expecting to see Johnny in this, but it does fit with taking an established leading man VA and putting them in the role of someone who keeps failing in being that kind of character. Johnny's also good at Snarky underdogs, so I think he'll fit Hiro well.

I believe this is Natalie Van Sistine's first lead role? Cool! I mean, Reona's kind of a polarizing female character, but I'm sure she'll do a great job. I guess I'm only a little disappointed they didn't keep the SAO in-joke like on the Japanese side, which makes me worried they won't get Bryce for Kamui, but that's not a major deal.

Kayli as Alicia is going to be a lot of fun.

I hope they get Bryce. It was such a good in-joke in the anime, it'd be a shame to not get him in.

Is the SAO joke in episode 1? If so what was it. If not, I'll consider that a spoiler so a spoiler tag please for it but what episode was it in? I am not watching this subbed btw, been waiting for the dub.

^Well, someone said the character of Kamui who appears in Ep4 and sporadically onward is voiced by the Japanese VA for Kirito so that is as far as the "joke" extends. BTW, he doesn't sound like Kirito...However, I can't wait to hear JYB doing Hiro's occasional "girl voice" when he's upset like in the current episode Smile

There's a few SAO jokes but I was thinking of how Reona, a big-busted fairy girl, is voiced by Japanese Leafa.

I think Kamui is definitely a deliberate Kirito parody.

I'd pay good money to hear Bryce deliver Kamui's lines, particularly in this latest episode. Hearing the voice of Kirito deliver that dialog (assuming a decent script adaptation) would really up the comedy value...
