The report just said that the trailer that Viz released (and everyone complained about) weren't the actual voice actors?


wait, what?!
then why release it..!


They were late doing the casting and they still haven't casted everyone. They lisenced Death Note I believe early in the year but the DVD doesn't come out until Novemeber. But, the show is airing on YTV in a couple of weeks.

For some reason I thought they would pick Scott McNeil for Ryuuk... guess I was wrong.

Brian Drummond is the only person I've heard about...


I think he was Vegeta's voice.

Tabatha St. Germain is alright, but I liked her Haro voice. (better than the Japanese one) They didn't hire the well known actors, which can be good because some are over rated but can be bad. Viz hasn't finished casting so there would be more to the list. (I hope they add Kirby Morrow) For Canadians, it's on YTV in the fall.

Seems like Gundam Seed recycled.


lol, well Destiny is finished being dubbed and it's the same studio/ADR production.

Hey, man - anime isn't just for kids! :P

I kind of agree (vindemon). I don't think it's going to be such a huge smash hit. Although the manga is doing really well, so who knows.

And for some reason, it really bothers me that an actor from Zoids is playing the voice of L. XD

Regardless of who the voice actors are, I just feel that Death Note is not going to do well over in America anyway. It doesn't seem to be an anime that the younger generation of kids who watch anime in the states would typically watch. I feel they are more into the Naruto and Bleach shows than this psychological thriller. We'll see though. Hopefully I'm proven wrong.

Can this Brad do nearly as good voice acting as Mamoru did in the last two episodes of Death Note? Because that was some fantastic work. I guess time will tell.

Hmm, don't know any of those voice actors either.

*was hoping for Hillary Haag to do Misa*

But of course, she only dubs for ADV.

Aug 19, 2007 2:53 AM by BlueYoshi

i haven't heard any of these ppl either (don't normally watch dubs). This'll be interesting to watch when it is finally released...whether that's a good interesting or a bad interesting is still undecided, but it is so far leaning towards the latter.

. _. never heard of any of them... hope it dosent suck =_=

Ugh... Tabitha St. Germain ... she did a bad job doing Shana from the dual-audio file I checked out... well, it's hard to compare to Kugimiya Rie's voice acting as Shana XD
