Shin Sasaki is the executive producer of all things Gundam. He joined SUNRISE in 1997 and worked in publicity on titles such as Cowboy Bebop: The Movie. He started his involvement with the Gundam series in 1999, working on publicity for Gundam SEED.
He gained his nickname as the “Gundam Guy” as he is involved in every Gundam series since then, including Gundam 00, MS Igloo, Gundam Unicorn, Gundam Build Fighters, Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, and Gundam Thunderbolt.
Masakazu Ogawa joined SUNRISE in 2002. After working on a variety of shows including Gundam SEED, Zegapain, and Gundam 00, he landed his first project as producer for Gundam AGE in 2011. He has since produced Gundam Build Fighters, Gundam Build Fighters Try, and Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.
Kyle McCarley grew up (but not really) in Kansas and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to study acting. After getting hooked on playing World of Warcraft with his buddies, he co-wrote, co-directed, and voiced several characters in a fan-made online radio play loosely set in that universe. Once he finished his Theatre degree at the University of Southern California, he decided to further pursue this passion in the form of a career in voice acting. Kyle can now be heard in anime, video games, cartoons, audiobooks, live action dubs, TV and radio commercials, industrial ads, and even a talking toy plunger.
His notable anime credits include Mikazuki Augus in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama in Mob Psycho 100, Joe Shimamura a.k.a. 009 in Cyborg 009: Call of Justice, Aoba Kuronuma in Durarara!!
