What do you think of the English cast for Eternal Summer? Were you cheering or booing when you saw the daily reveals?

Bonus question: What do you think about CR holding the home video rights to Season 1?

(Check out the casting at http://free2anime.tumblr.com/ if you haven't seen it yet.)

I'm excited for this dub, because I want to see how the translators and voice actors will interpret this anime to fit for the western audience.

I hope they will study the characters, and not just stand there and read from the script with a flat voice.

I'm neutral since I already watched the subbed version and I love the Japanese voices so much so even if I buy the DVDs, I'll watch them in Japanese.

I know that there is a "war" in tumblr because the English voice actor for Rin is homophobic and has sexually assaulted some girls...or so I read...and this has caused a lot of negative feelings with the English cast among the fans.

Vic did what?! That's the first time I'm hearing about this and his alleged homophobia. How are the Rin x Haru shippers feeling about this, assuming the accusations are true?

As for the dub itself, it's great that they have an all-star cast but some of these voices might sound strange when you match them up with the characters. I guess I'll just have to hear some samples myself before I judge. From all the dubs I've seen, Vic and Todd never change their voices for any character they play.

I'm really excited for the voice of the Narrator in Hetalia to play Gou! I think she will be a great match! But Idk about Todd Haberkorn as Haru though.....

Sigh, Yaoi fangirls love to start rumours.

Vic Mignogna isn't homophobic; he just doesn't like Yaoi and isn't afraid to make that fact clear because he feels uncomfortable when people ask him to sign 18+ Yaoi doujins and got sick of constantly being asked to say: ''Roy Mustang is dead sexy in a mini-skirt'' at cons.

I'm looking forward to it, but I feel like they mixed up the actors' roles I think Johnny Yong Bosch should be Haru and Vic Mignona should be Makoto and Todd Haberkorn should be Momotarou. I also think Josh Grelle should be Sousuke. Ian Sinclair should be Coach Mikoshiba and I don't know that much about the rest of the cast, save for Greg Ayres and J. Michael Tatum, who I feel are perfectly cast, so that's it. Also, si nceiit's still a possibility, I'll mention that I hope Luci Christian will play Makoto's little brother, because that would be great!

Well that depends on what you mean by "change".

Anyway, they can and do. Really, it depends on the voice director on how they sound for a role.

Seconding this. I heard none of these things until this particular casting choice came up.

I support this dub, and I am not going to let the Tumblr crowd harsh my enjoyment of the show.

i don't really care, if i buy DVD i will only listen to Jap VA because it's what i'm used to. and, well, the original VAs are so.. hm... nice... but when anime get dubbed it means i can buy it in English so that's always a good thing.

I don't know if it is true or not, some people defend him and some people curse at him...I just read the tumblr & twitter drama from some people I follow. I didn't even know who Vic was nor did I care about the english voice actors...here are some of the comments floating around, even girls who said they were sexually assaulted...*shrugs*







It is a big problem because even the director has answered the rumors:


In my case, if the rumors that he is homophobic are true, I wouldn't even care because his job has nothing to do with his personal views and opinions. If he dislikes yaoi... so be it... he has the right to dislike things BUT if the allegations of sexual assaults are true, I don't think I would support someone like that.

The nasty rumors about Vic have been going on for a few years.

lol

About Vic.... those romurs are . He is such a nice guy and very good with his fans. And yes he is very Christian and fans should respect his views and belief. As a fan of his for a long time, I have come to know him more as a person . He always very nice and sweet to me.


Johnny is fine as Makoto. Haberkorn can do Haru but he his pitch a little lower. Jerry Jewel works well as Momotaru . Greg is perfect as Nagisa.

However I think Vic should do Rei and then Michael Tatum as Rin.

I emailed JYB about him being Makoto and I kinda gave him the heads up about the popularity of this show and his character
