We must all face the fact that the dub IS COMING EVENTUALLY and most likely by VIZ or Funimation(big fan of both by the way). And so if it must be dubbed there are only three characters that I find would be difficult to get good(or at least decent) VA's for Tsuna, Gokudera and Reborn. Every other character is for the most part is not as difficult to find VA's for.

Tsuna- My problem with thinking of a english voice actor with Tsuna is that the pitch of his voice tends to change a lot mostly from scared(Normal Tsuna), pissed(Dying Will/Deathperation Mode) and calm/tactical(Hyper Dying Will/Deathperation Mode). I though at first that Tsuna would need multiple voice actors to be pulled off at least somewhat effectively since most voice actors that I could think of for him could at most pull off only two of the three major changes. There are only a couple I can think of that could actually pull off all the consatnt changes in Tsuna's emotions.

#1: Brad Swaile

Known VA Roles: Rock(Black Lagoon)
Light Yagami(Death Note)
Mobile Suit Gundam 00( Setsuna F. Seiei)

In my own opinion I believe he has a wide range of voices that could help him to pull it off. Since he did Rock in Black Lagoon( for those who don't know Black Lagoon, Rock is the very pathetic male protagonist) he could pull off Normal and Dying Will/Deathperation Mode Tsuna pretty well, and since he's done several cold(and mostly anti-hero) characters such as Light Yagami(ALL OF YOU SHOULD KNOW WHO THIS IS) and Setsuna from Gundam 00 he is capable of toning down his voice to fit Hyper Mode Tsuna.

#2: Yuri Lowenthal

Known VA Roles: Sasuke Uchiha(Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden)
Shu(Blue Dragon)
Haru Glory(Rave Master)
Afro Samurai(Kuma)
Suzaku Kurugi(Code Geass)

In all honesty, he's not one of my favorite voice actors(mostly because he does emo characters) but he might also be able pull off Tsuna. He has done characters with considerably "normal(or more specifically a character with common sense)" like Haru Glory from Rave Master so he might not have too many problems with Normal Tsuna. He also did Shu from Blue Dragon which involved A LOT of screaming so Dying Will/Deathperation Mode is something he could do pretty well. As I said before he does a lot of voice acting for emo characters so I have no doubts he could do Hyper Dying Will/Deathperation Mode with ease.


Gokudera- He's also rather difficult to do since he sounds pissed off every second he talks and then five seconds later worships the ground Tsuna walks on.

1# Vic Mignogna

Known VA Roles: Edward Elric(Fullmetal Alchemist)
Ikkaku(Bleach)
Air Gear(Sora Takeuchi)

He wasn't one of my first decisions, but after going back to think about it, I realized that he could pull Gokudera off fairly well. He is best known for doing Edward Elric, who sounds pissed 80%(they really should stop making fun of his height...) and he can also flip emotions fairly quickly as Ed often did, so switching from anger to praise might not be too hard. In addition, since he's REALLY well known, he would probably be well recieved for this role.

2# Kyle Herbert

Known VA Roles: Kiba Inuzuka(Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden)
Sosuke Aizen(Bleach)
Kamina(Gurren Laggan)

For some strange reason he was the first person I thought of to do Gokudera. Much like Ed from FMA, his role as KIba in Naruto, forces him to sound pissed 100% of the time, so he could inact Gokudera's anger well. The only slight problem I see with him involves him switching to emotions of praise, but I believe it's within his capability.

Reborn- THE HARDEST of all voices to find. He for the most part sounds like an ironically mature infant and I don't known anyone who really fits that. In order to find a good voice actor for Reborn, he'd have to either sound like an infant(or mascot esque character) or ugnore that Reborn looks like an infant(since he isn't really one) and give him a very deep voice.

Feel free to comment or think of other VA's

*NOTE* Your all free to express your opinions but PLEASE don't turn this in some debate about all dubs sucking!!

yeah not sure if this will ever get dubbed. i don't think reborn is as popular here as naruto and bleach were. I'd certainly like it to be dubbed preferably by funimation since they do a good job.

but idk who could pull off the odder voices, like for reborn, lambo and i-pin.

Your wrong in that aspect. In 2008, the Reborn manga was the 4th best sellung series in Japan even ranking ahead of Bleach(Ranked 5th). The Anime DVD's also sell well in Japan. I can't understand why it HASN'T BEEN LICENSED YET!

It would be horrible to see it licensed, so I hope in due time, that it won't be on tv anytime soon. >_>

That would hurt my poor heart.


I wonder if kids would be interested watching English Dub about Mafias? o_o; Let alone understand it. xD

Tsuna: Yuri Lowenthal because he can deal with Tsuna's voice changes

Gokudera: Vic Mignogna because he can deal with Gokudera's screaming and his screaming voice is funny

I know I'm late but I also agree that Vic Mignogna should voice Gokudera. Just thinking about it seems perfect. And Gokudera kinda reminds me of Spirit (Death Scythe) from Soul Eater, who is also voiced by Vic Mignogna.

Only reason it isn't licensed yet even though it is popular in Japan is because Viz is too busy fapping to Naruto and Bleach to even care about any other anime series.

Funi on the other hand might license it since they sent out cease and desist letters to fansub gorups subbing Reborn and all the series they sent out letters to they eventually licensed so maybe they will soon.
