Because we don't want the Berserk: New animation thread littered with posts about the voice actors I decided to make this thread. So anyways, since we know the Berserk Seiyuu's are going to be good  :ubik: let's think about who should be the voices for this Reboot.

If we were to go by that logic, maybe we should let Samuel L Jackson be Void?  :troll:

Personally, I have no real preference over voice actors, provided they get the translation right and aren't sloppy.

Steven Blum-Random Soldier

Steven Blum has been in so many anime, I wouldn't be surprise if he just has a small role in this.

I concur with Michael Bell as the Black Swordsman. :guts:
And honestly, Cam Clarke is so good, you could get him to do another major role and you wouldn't even notice.

Cam Clarke is awesome, but I didn't think his voice fit well at all for Puck. Too deep for an "elf".

I can't bring myself to contribute anything else to this thread...

For those who want to introduce Berserk to their stubborn friends or girlfriend who don't understand the purpose of subtitles, it can be quite useful.

More and more animes are being brought to the states without a dub these days, so it's not unlikely.

Bring back all the old VAs from the first season.  I didn't have a problem with any of them.

I don't know, Dwarfkicker.  Whoever did the english voice for Casca sounded atrocious to me.

I personally prefer the original voices with subtitles, but also agree that having dubs is a useful tool for getting unfamiliar people interested.  I recently told my girlfriend the entire story in great detail and she is actually interested in berserk now.  However she pretty much can't stand anime with subtitles, so I really hope they have some decent english voice-overs so I can enjoy them with her.

Oh, definitely. When it comes to animated material, I personally think there shouldn't automatically be a discrimination between dubs and subs. In truth you're really only choosing between a dub in one language and one in another. The problem is that re-dubs tend to suck, especially for non-blockbuster series/movies.

And I'd rather not have a dub in a language I speak instead of having a shitty one (see the US dub for the 1997 TV series). For now honestly I'm hoping the Japanese voice acting will be good. Taking it one step at a time.

How dare you bring logic and reason into this thread to make a practical point!? Fortunately, we have the antidote...

Bring back all the old VAs from the first season.  I didn't have a problem with anal rape.

Haha, I like that little modification Griffith  :serpico: The only good thing to come out of the English voice actors were the outtakes. At least you were supposed to laugh at them. One outtake from disc five had me in stitches "Erica says, watch out for your balls...ching! ching!"

Whilst it seems logical, I actually managed to get my fiancée to watch the entire series with subtitles. Because once she heard the English voice actors, she was laughing at how nasty they were.

When i first read the title, i thought how awesome would it be if James Earl Jones did Voids voice.
Now i kinda have second thought about it, just doesn't seem so right.

Give me a good English dub over a sub any day.

Personally, I think the English dub of the original series did a pretty good job of at least matching voices to the main characters. That's more than I can say for most dubs these days.

Subs all the way, definitely.

But honestly, as average as Casca's English voice may have been, the outtakes rather endeared her to me.

Something about her randomly interspersing "suck my c**k" into her outtakes a few times in a humorous voice amused me to no end.  :casca:

I can watch anime with subs, it's no big deal. I always prefer the dub though.  Doesn't matter that much to me as I don't watch much anime these days.

But Guts and Griffith in the dub I thought were excellent.  I also take anime dub Guts over Raziel-Guts from the game any day.  All I could see when he spoke in the game was the little reaver of souls.  That's not to say he isn't a great VA. :guts:

Personally I always imagined Voids voice to have a magical quality. Like Skullknights.
