Vampire Knight English Dub
Posted 5/10/10
I'm pretty sure most of you are disappointed with the English cast of Vampire Knight. I mean, Vic voicing Zero?! I can't even picture it...actually I did, and it didn't sound right in my mind.
Just to let you know that it was the Japanese people who worked on Vampire Knight chose the voices. I don't know what they do, I'm just guessing they sent out voice samples for people who had auditioned for.
Sometimes, I really wish that any anime company who license a good or popular anime, they should let the fans to decide who voice the characters.

i honestly wasnt disappointed in the casting of vic as zero. and i'm really interested in seeing how the dub will go before i'm positive or negative about the casting. i did think that it was kind of interesting that its pretty much the second time that vic has been cast as the voice of a character that mamoru miyano voiced in japanese and i think that vic is a very talented actor. personally i think i would have been disappointed if they had cast crispin freeman as zero.

i've come across some of the dubbed episodes and their not bad although i have issue with how kaname's name is said in english so much so i went hunting for the subbed and i guess its pretty much the same just sounds like in english they break his name up so it sounds like kan ame doesnt seems to flow too well. other then that i think the dub is ok

you can get the first episode in english for free on iTunes. And it (IMO) suuuuucksss. The only characters voices I liked/could stand to listen to were Kain's and Shiki's. (sorry for mini rant)
I won't say anymore for those who haven't watched it in english yet...

I've seen the first episode on iTunes late last night and was impressed at the voices being dubbed in English. Two things that doesn't impress me the most are the voices of Zero and Aidou. Mela Lee's voice of Yuuki was 100% kawaii while Ethan Murray's voice of Kaname pwns Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen by thousands fold.


Overall: 4 out of 5.

dito id like to see it before i make any opinion. but i do agree, wen i thought of vic as zero i couldnt picture it. BUT dont forget vic dose this special thing with his voice where he doesnt have to sound like the same person =) i cant remember wat character it was he voiced but i had difficulty figuring out who it was.

I see what you mean. I mean heck... at least they should have picked young voice actors to play the roles of Kaname and Zero. Where's Crispin Freeman or Jonny Yong Bosch when we need 'em?

actually i kind of feared what the dub was going to sound like before anything was said as to who the voices were going to be since there was always the possibility of johnny yong bosch being in the cast as much as i kind of liked him on power rangers back in the day and i'm fine with him as ichigo in bleach i really dont think he would have fit so thankfully he wasnt put in the cast. and as i stated i really wasnt disappointed with what i saw of vk dubbed all the actors chosen to me did a good job it was only the "kan ame" that bugged me although it didnt seem like all the characters pronounce it that way just many seemed to.

im guessing from tony's post he doesnt like Vic.
