Speaking of the DKD dub, I was thinking on it earlier, and Chris Patton would be a perfect Akuto.[/quote]

That’s my two cents from the solicitation thread.

Janice Williams, Seraphim Digital has posted this cast list description:

[quote]Demon King Daimao-
ADR Director - Steven Foster
Translation - Karou Bertrand

Characters to be Guessed:

Akuto Sai – Akuto is entering Constant Magic Academy with the goal of becoming a Grand Priest so that he can help improve society. Unfortunately, on the first day of class, the school’s resident Yatagarasu predicts Akuto is destined to be the Demon King, destroyer of society.

Kena Soga – Kena is a somewhat flighty girl in Akuto’s class, though she seldom actually attends class. She really likes rice – no, really, she REALLY likes rice. She grows fond of Akuto rather quickly.

Junko Hattori – Junko is the daughter of one of the premier ninja clans. She has a strong sense of justice and right. She originally meets Akuto when he helps her grandmother with her luggage, and they quickly hit it off. She feels betrayed when the Yatagarasu announces that Akuto will be the Demon King.

Korone – a Liradan (android) surveillance agent. After Akuto is predicted to become the Demon King, Korone is assigned by the Magic Cabinet to keep an eye on him and report back.

Hiroshi Miwa – one of Akut’s classmates. He looks up to Akuto in his future role of Demon King.

Fujiko Eto – leader of the girls’ dorm at Constant Magic Academy. She has her own, somewhat shady plans for Akuto and does what she can to encourage him to become the Demon King.

Lily Shiraishi – student council president of Constant Magic Academy. With her all-female cabinet, she effectively regulates the students’ lives at school. While not totally supportive of the idea of Demon King Akuto, she’s willing to live-and-let-live within reason. She also seems to have an agenda of her own.

Mitsuko Torii – the school nurse and Akuto’s homeroom teacher. Once she finds out he’s destined to be the Demon King, she encourages him to come to her in the case of his demise so that she can study his body.

Michie Otake – vice president of the student council.

Kanna Kamiyama – treasure of the student council.

Arnoul – secretary of the student council. She only says “Guga”.

Yatagarasu [Crow] – an avian health meter and fortune teller. All new students at Constant Magic Academy are brought in front of the Yatagarasu to make sure they’re healthy and determine what their future occupation will be. He’s never been wrong.

Fujiko’s Brother – Once a daring adventurer and explorer, Fujiko’s brother is now just a head in a jar. He often bemoans Fujiko’s wanton and unseemly behavior.

Academy Director – the elderly wizard charged with running Constant Magic Academy.

Eiko Teruya – daughter of a rival ninja clan. She’s after Akuto for her own reasons, of course.

Boichiro Yamato – a suave member of the Magic Cabinet. He DEFEINITELY has his own agenda, and it doesn’t include the existence of a Demon King.

Peter Hausen – a dragon who’s been sleeping for 100 years awaiting the coming of a new Demon King.

Yukiko – Horishi’s younger sister.

Yuri Hoshino – a pop idol singer.

Yozo Hattori – Junko’s father, head of the Hattori family & the Iga Ninja.

Grandmother – Junko’s grandmother.

Keizo Teruya – Eiko’s father, head of the Teruya family & the Koga Ninja.[/quote]

Then she confirmed these guesses:

Akuto Sai - Chris Patton
Korone – Maggie Flecknoe
Hiroshi Miwa – Greg Ayres
Lily Shiraishi – Hillary Haag
Fujiko’s Brother – Blake Shepard
Yuri Hoshino – Jessica Boone

So, we have an Eileen, but not a Ben?
I feel jilted!


#14

I actually met a Ben & Eileen Dover (siblings) back when I worked in the lighting industry. Didn’t believe them till I was their driver’s licenses and they told me about their hippie parents. The evil that men do…

Wherever I heard that Chris Patton was getting out of major voice acting(unless if it is a returning character, i.e, Fate or Souske) lied to me.

Cast looks good, I just wish I heard better things about the show.

Actually, that was true, he did ‘retire’ for a time, he was just lured out again.

It happens to the best that they aren’t gone for long.


#17

I am glad chris un retired. Just goes to show no really does stay retired. I don’t know if the only one but I wasn’t surprised Greg Ayres as Hiroshi. When I first saw the show on AN online I thought maybe he do the character in the dub.

The main reason Chris was retiring was the fact that he lived in Houston and with ADV not dubbing for so longl there was little work to be had. He drove to Ft Worth regularly to work on dubs at Funimation, but there were some “issues” there and he never got as many major roles there. Plus, the drive to Dallas/Ft Worth is fairly lengthy one (I believe about 3 hours?)

Anyway, it’s been great to see him in more dubs and even better to see him in a lead role.
