Added DiffLines:

* "Anime/Bakugan" is especially guilty of this.
** The main villain of the first season, Naga, goes through three VA's in 13 episodes.
** New Vestroia had this bad. Rather than bring some characters' original VA's back, they are done by other actors who sound nothing like the originals. Mercifully, the originals return later on

*** Hiyori was originally voiced by Mela Lee, but is now voiced by Creator/LauraBailey as a result of the same pay-dispute. Because she was already voicing Tia Harribel and Mashiro Kuna, this unfortunately meant that she had to voice 3 characters ''in the same environment'' during the Winter Battle arc!

** Lyra's voice actress moved after Season 1, so expect her actress to be a different one after the Tenrou Island arc wraps in the dub. Also the narrator died, so expect that voice to change too. Also, Bixlow's voice might change because his voice actor appears to be moving on with his career.
** In Japanese, Creator/MaiNakahara, Juvia's actress, briefly replaced Creator/SatomiArai as Bisca during the Fighting Festival arc, with Arai returning to the role soon after.

** The Dragon Slayers under Dilandau were especially notorious for this. Dallet, Shesta, and Gatti all had at least three (actors/actresses) per man. Sometimes their voices would change in the same episode! All three were voiced by Creator/VenusTerzo (Millerna) at various points while in others actors, such as Creator/BrianDrummond (Allen), Creator/AndrewFrancis (Dilandau), Creator/CathyWeseluck, Terry Klassen (Moleman), and even Van's voice actor Creator/KirbyMorrow provided their speaking parts. Shesta even got a fourth voice in the movie (Creator/TrevorDevall, in case you were wondering).
** Two of the three Zaibach generals (Zodia and Getin) had multiple actors as well Creator/MichaelDobson and later his brother Creator/PaulDobson for Zodia and Drummond, Don Brown (Balgus), and Richard Newman (Dornkirk) for Getin.
** Young Van was voiced by Creator/AndrewFrancis in the TV series but was changed to Jocelyn Loewen (Merle) for the movie dub.
** The new Creator/FUNimation redub of the series will invoke this yet again with an entire new voice cast. [[Anime/DragonBallZ This isn't the first]] [[Anime/ShakuganNoShana and second time FUNi has replaced an Ocean voice cast]].
* Since Shinji Ogawa died just before Anime/AldnoahZero could be finished, Creator/TakayukiSugo replaced him as Emperor Reyregalia Vers Rayvers for the last episode.
* Since Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes voice actor Creator/KeiTomiyama died on September 25th 1995, his role as Yang in his last appearances was replaced by Creator/HozumiGouda.
* While the English dub of Manga/AttackOnTitanJuniorHigh retained the original English voice actors from Manga/AttackOnTitan, Ian Dietrich, however, is now voiced by Garret Storms, because his original voice actor Creator/ScottFreeman was unavailable due to being incarcerated for possession of child pornography.
* LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'s English dub featured two characters from LightNovel/{{Baccano}} make a cameo appearance in episode 11 of the first season. The characters were Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent, who were both voiced by Creator/SamRiegel and Creator/StephanieSheh instead of Creator/JMichaelTatum and Creator/CaitlinGlass.

** For some reason, Van's German dub voice actor, Byorn Schalla, didn't reprise his role in the movie, and was replaced by Robin Kahnmeyer.

*** Also, Pokemon Origins ended up being dubbed in Los Angeles instead of New York, and while few original characters reappeared, the ones that did, such as Brock, Professor Oak, and Giovanni, ended up with different voices. Red's voice was also different from the one he had in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl''. Justified in that they're different interpretations of the characters.

*** Also, Pokemon Origins ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' ended up being dubbed in Los Angeles instead of New York, and while few original characters reappeared, the ones that did, such as Brock, Professor Oak, and Giovanni, ended up with different voices.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' was the ''very'' first anime TV series to receive a straight uncut dub into English, and it took ''10 years'' to dub all 161 episodes (plus all three movies and eleven original OVA episodes), so naturally there were a few people that left at some point in that duration. The show is lucky it didn't have even more recasts.
** Between Seasons 3 and 4 (episodes 63 and 64), the North-American dub voice for Ranma abruptly changed from Sarah Strange, [[CrossDressingVoices a woman playing a boy's voice]], to Richard Ian Cox -- a man playing a boy's voice after the former wanted to move on with her career (although this can also be interpreted as Ranma's voice maturing). Because the series was dubbed out of order, Sarah's voice is also heard in episode 69 and all the movies/[=OVAs=].
** After the first six episodes Ranma's female voice actor also changed from Brigitta Dau (who also voiced the character in the first two OVA episodes) to Venus Terzo following Dau's move to the US, but the change was arguably more subtle since it was fairly early on in the series, and the voices were similar.
** When Angela Costain, the English voice of Nabiki Tendô, wanted to attend flight school, her sister Elaina Wotten-Costain took over the character for Season 6. (Unlike many vocal Darrins, the difference between the two performances was virtually nil -- many viewers never noticed the change). Angela returned for Season 7 when her schedule worked out.
** Kodachi Kuno was the only unlucky character with ''three'' voice actors, being voiced by Creator/TerylRotherly for the first four seasons and later by Creator/ErinFitzgerald for Season 5 after Teryl became too busy with her live action work. Later Erin moved to the US and the role was recast again for Seasons 6-7 with Sylvia Zaradic (who ironically sounded much closer to Teryl than Erin).
** Both the Jusenkyo Guide and Dr. Tofu were recast beginning in Season 6 with new voice actors (Michael Donovan and Kirby Morrow respectively) when their original voice actor, Ian James Corlett, quit all voice acting for anime following a nasty fallout with Ocean Studios.
** Cologne was voiced by Creator/KathleenBarr in the [=OVAs=] and movies (which were among the first things dubbed), and by Elan Ross-Gibson in the TV series.
** On the Japanese side of things, Creator/KoujiTsujitani filled in for Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki for three episodes as Tatewaki Kuno. For the 2008 OVA, Tsujitani once again filled in, as Suzuoki had passed away a few years earlier.



* ''Anime/{{Slayers}}''
** The English version had several cases of this. After episode 13, the dubbing was put on hiatus for Software Sculptors and Central Park Media to evaluate video sales. The hiatus lasted nearly two years, during which time TAJ Productions lost contact with all but a few of the voice actors. When dubbing finally continued (with a different studio but same production company), only leads Creator/LisaOrtiz (Lina) and Creator/EricStuart (Gourry) returned to their old roles. The most notable replacements were Creator/CrispinFreeman replacing Daniel Cronin as the voice of Zelgadis, and Creator/VeronicaTaylor replacing Joan Baker as the voice of Amelia. With them are Zangulus (Creator/TedLewis replacing Liam O'Malley), and Prince Phillionel (Creator/JimmyZoppi replacing Matthew Black). The only other characters who got to keep their original voices were Vrumugun (Creator/JimmyZoppi) and Rezo (Peter Davis). The voices were consistent for the rest of first three seasons. [[note]]Except one time in Season 2 when Anthony Salerno filled in for Matthew Sussman for as King Moros for an episode where he had one line.[[/note]] In an example of TropesAreNotBad, the replacement voices in this show are almost universally considered better than the originals.
** In addition to this, ADV Films handled all the Movies and [=OVAs=] and used their Houston-based talent pool instead of the original New York cast for the series. They tried to get Creator/LisaOrtiz back as Lina, but they were unable to, so Creator/CynthiaMartinez notably replaced her, and in ''Slayers Premium'', Creator/ChrisPatton filled in for Creator/EricStuart as Gourry, Creator/LuciChristian filled in for Veronica Taylor as Amelia, and Kurt Stoll filled in for David Moo as Xellos; however, Creator/CrispinFreeman returned to play Zelgadis since he was in the area at the time anyway.
** When Funimation outsourced the ''Slayers Revolution'' and ''Evolution-R'' dubs to NYAV Post (who records in both New York and Los Angeles), Ortiz, Stuart, Taylor, and Freeman all returned to play the four leads. Pretty much everyone else however, was replaced: Creator/MichaelSinterniklaas replaced David Moo as Xellos, Creator/StephanieSheh replaced Stacia Crawford as Sylphiel, Creator/LiamOBrien replaced Peter Davis as Rezo, David Brimmer replacing Creator/JimmyZoppi as Philionel, and Creator/MarcThompson replacing Roger Kay as Shabranigdo. The only other character to keep their original voice was Gaav (Creator/DanGreen), as well as Hellmaster Phibrizzo (WayneGrayson) for his brief cameo.
** The Japanese cast has stuck through for the most part; however, Creator/MinoruInaba would become Prince Phil's second Japanese voice in the third season after his first, Masahiro Anzai, was incapacitated by a severe case of diabetes.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' has a number of Other Darrins:
** Notably after ''Tenchi Universe'', Mihoshi, Kiyone, Tenchi's Father, Tenchi's Grandfather, Tsunami, Misao, and minor characters Kazuhiko, Azaka, and Kamidake were all recast at the same time for various reasons:
*** Creator/WendeeLee took over the voice of Kiyone Makibi despite the fact that her original VA, Creator/SherryLynn, was still active as Sasami and Tsunami. Ironically, she does later voice ''a'' Kiyone in the later [=OVAs=] -- Kiyone ''Masaki'', Tenchi's mom, who was originally voiced by Creator/PetreaBurchard (Ryoko's original voice) for her brief appearance in the original [=OVAs=].
*** Sherry was also briefly replaced as Tsunami as well, for the final two episodes of the ''Anime/MagicalGirlPrettySammy'' OVA, where Lara Cody voiced the character instead.
*** Also in Pretty Sammy, Misao was recast after the first episode from Creator/SusanTurneyCray to Creator/DebiDerryberry. Yuka and Yuma (Ayeka's assistants) also went from Ellen Gerstell and Kate T. Vogt respectively to Lara Cody and Wendee Lee at the same time.
*** The big recast was Creator/RebeccaForstadt taking over for Ellen Gerstell as Mihoshi in 1998 following Gerstell's retirement.
*** Also, the late Creator/BobPapenbrook took over the roles of Tenchi's father and grandfather after Creator/JayHopper moved away.
** When Creator/{{Funimation}} was set to have episode 18 of ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'' recorded, which reintroduced the original OVA cast, none of the original cast members could return for time and budget reasons and thus everyone got new voices (one could say Mihoshi and Tenchi's grandfather were the only ones to return, but they were already Other Darrins; it was their ''second'' voices that returned).
** When [=FUNimation=] got ahold of the third OVA series, they ''were'' able to get most of the voices back. However, Ryoko's voice actress (Petrea Burchard) notably couldn't return for unknown reasons (rumor says it was a pay dispute), so the studio ended up using her GXP VA (Mona Marshall) to reprise her role. To their credit, though, they ''tried'' to make her sound like the original, but not even that could save this recast from being one of the most notoriously controversial ever in English anime.
*** Tokimi and D3 also found themselves with new voices for this. Tokimi's was odd, as her original VA, Creator/JenniferDarling, had returned as Ayeka. Also, Noike was voiced by Kari Wahlgren in OVA 3 after Mona Marshall had voiced the role for her brief appearance in GXP. However, Sherry Lynn did get her role of Tsunami back.
** When ''Anime/SasamiMagicalGirlsClub'' was being made, the decision was made not to use Creator/ChisaYokoyama, Sasami's Japanese seiyuu since the Tenchi franchise began, in favor of an actual child. Likewise, Funimation didn't rehire Creator/SherryLynn for the English dub either, however instead of casting a real kid, they cast an adult actress, Alison Viktorin, who had experience voicing children. Mihoshi, Washu, and Misao also found themselves with all-new voices (Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard, Creator/LuciChristian, and Creator/MonicaRial respectively). They were all also recast in Japan.
** With the release of ''Ai Tenchi Muyo!'', all but one of the original Japanese cast returned with Creator/HaruhiNanao replacing Creator/YumiTakada as Ayeka, who retired years ago.
* ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' had this happen in the following categories:
** For some reason, Van's German dub voice actor, Byorn Schalla, didn't reprise his role in the movie, and was replaced by Robin Kahnmeyer.
** In the Ocean English dub, a number of secondary characters had voices changed for various reasons. Yukari was first voiced by Willow Johnson at the start of the show, but was later replaced by Creator/SaffronHenderson (she was also the voice of Eriya and Celena Schezar). Willow returned as Yukari for the movie, however.
** The Dragon Slayers under Dilandau were especially notorious for this. Dallet, Shesta, and Gatti all had at least three (actors/actresses) per man. Sometimes their voices would change in the same episode! All three were voiced by Creator/VenusTerzo (Millerna) at various points while in others actors, such as Creator/BrianDrummond (Allen), Creator/AndrewFrancis (Dilandau), Creator/CathyWeseluck, Terry Klassen (Moleman), and even Van's voice actor Creator/KirbyMorrow provided their speaking parts. Shesta even got a fourth voice in the movie (Creator/TrevorDevall, in case you were wondering).
** Two of the three Zaibach generals (Zodia and Getin) had multiple actors as well Creator/MichaelDobson and later his brother Creator/PaulDobson for Zodia and Drummond, Don Brown (Balgus), and Richard Newman (Dornkirk) for Getin.
** Young Van was voiced by Creator/AndrewFrancis in the TV series but was changed to Jocelyn Loewen (Merle) for the movie dub.
** The new Creator/FUNimation redub of the series will invoke this yet again with an entire new voice cast. [[Anime/DragonBallZ This isn't the first]] [[Anime/ShakuganNoShana and second time FUNi has replaced an Ocean voice cast]].
