"Pacific Rim" Japanese Voice Cast Announced

The voices of JoJo, Rei Ayanami, Amuro Ray, and Char Aznable

Following Tomokazu Sugita for the voice of the leading character Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam), the full Japanese voice cast for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming "giant robots vs kaiju" film Pacific Rim are revealed today. The cast includes renowned voice actors/actresses for the popular robot anime series Mobile Suit Gundam and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

 

Rinko Kikuchi who plays a female Japanese character Mako Mori doesn't voice her own character in the Japanese version, though she is a native Japanese speaker. Mako Mori is voiced by veteran voice actress Megumi Hayashibara. Considering the fact that Kikuchi is known for her voice work as Suito Kusanagi in Mamoru Oshii's 2008 anime film The Sky Crawlers, this is a kind strange. How do you like the Japanese voice cast?
