Viz has started to trickle announcements on the Tiger & Bunny English dub cast on their official T&B Facebook page. So far we have:
- Patrick Seitz as Sky High/Keith Goodman
- Travis Willingham as Rock Bison/Antonio Lopez
- Jamieson K. Price as Albert Maverick
- Stephanie Sheh as Kriem
- Steven Blum as Jake Martinez
At the current speed (announcement every other day) they can drag this on for weeks – and Kotetsu and Barnaby’s VA’s will probably be the last ones to be announced.
We don’t usually watch dubs, and the American voice actors we recognise we have learned to know from game dubs. Because of that we don’t really have any expectations, other than that we don’t want to hear Vic Mignogna in any role, and we would absolutely love to hear Yuri Lowenthal in some role, preferably as Ivan.
What do you think of the cast choices so far, and who would be in your dream voice cast?
Update: More cast announced.
- Laura Bailey as Dragon Kid/Huang Pao-Lin
- Kari Wahlgren as Blue Rose/Karina Lyle
- John Eric Bentley as Fire Emblem/Nathan Seymour
I don’t know if my google-fu is failing or if John Eric Bentley hasn’t done notable anime work before, I only found an IMDB page that seems like it’s the right person.
Update 2: Another cast announcement adds…
Update: Back to the heroes (and crushing my casting hopes) with…
- Michael Sinterniklaas as Origami Cyclone/Ivan Karelin
Ivan was the only role that I really had someone in mind for, I was hoping for Yuri Lowenthal… I’ll still keep hoping he’ll appear in some other role. Now the only heroes that haven’t been announced yet are Wild Tiger and Barnaby, and we’re also still missing Lunatic.
Update: Tadah! Another cast announcement, and they’re still hoarding Tiger & Barnaby…
- Daran Norris as Mr. Lloyds
- Eden Riegel as Kaede Kaburagi
- Dave Wittenberg as Doc Saito
- Beau Billingslea as Ben Jackson
Update: I think we are nearing the end of the announcements! Today adds…
- Liam O’Brien as Lunatic
A very good choice indeed in my opinion. Maybe the next announcement will bring us Kotetsu & Barnaby.
Update: Viz issued a press release about T&B panel at Anime Expo and it included the following cast announcement:
- Yuri Lowenthal as Barnaby Brooks Jr.
Personally I wasn’t 100% sure if Yuri would be the right Barnaby but then again, I didn’t really think Morita was the right Barnaby either before I heard his performance. In any case, Yuri Lowenthal is our #1 favourite American VA here at This is Sternbild and WE ARE EXCITED, OH YES WE ARE. Now they just have Kotetsu to announce and the main cast will be complete.
Update the FINAL: And the cast is complete.
- Wally Wingert as Wild Tiger/Kotetsu T. Kaburagi
