I really don't like the casting for All Might. ''Avdol'' does not fit him at all.

I think it's a prefect choice ;)

I completely missed this tidbit, but I'm super happy because his voice fits this character!

Nobuhiko Okamoto huh?
Bakugou's character might be a little bit more bearable now.

So far the cast could have been better but oh well, nothing against them, I just think other voices would suit them more.

Yeah I agree, I was thinking someone more like rider from FZ

Oh wow. That is exactly the VA I had in mind lol.
Eh, I don't think he'd be THAT much better. I was actually more bothered by Midoriya's VA. Expected someone like Hinata (Haikyuu!!)'s VA tbh.

Hmm? Avdol has a deep voice, but I just imagined the tone of All Might differently, due to his personality.

Oh true, if only they chose Kana Hanazawa for All Might.

Now let's hope for self-contained 24-52 episode long anime original story that does not drag this out to kingdom come and actually is more comprehensive and serious than generic shonen.


let's hope you die.

Perfect!

Whoever casted him is a genius.

Aren't we all genius?

Definitely a great choice for the role though the news should've mentioned Index series instead of Nozaki-kun to show some relevance.

Nov 27, 2015 8:10 PM by EasyGo-er

Yep. Looks good.
He definitely sounds the role.
