Names to Know in Anime

Go To

Anime, as in Japanese animation, has not only been around for a few decades, but it was quite self-contained for much of that period. It therefore has a select number of people who were extremely influential in its development. It is useful to know these people, as their personal style has formed the foundations of many Japanese Visual Arts Tropes found in this wiki.

Not to be confused with Essential Anime: that's about programs.

English

Here's a list of noteworthy English dub voice actors. This list is separated by where they are based, altho some are not exclusive to one locale and talent pools can overlap in geographically close areas.

Most English dubs are recorded in Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, and Hong Kong- in that order (Hong Kong mostly produces alternate dubs for Animax). New York City and Tokyo are occasionally used (yet not nearly as much as they they to be) and Canadian cities like Toronto and Vancouver are thawed out every now and then, sometimes for new productions, but mostly for cast reprisals. In addition, various cities around the world have been used to varying degrees of frequency, but are again no longer used.

Others, while still very much alive, have either retired or changed careers, such as:

    Retired 
  • Stephen Apostolina: Provides background voices in anime such as Naruto and Zatch Bell!. Hasn't done any new roles in anime since 2006, though continues to provide background voices in several films.
  • Sebastian Arcelus: Worked on several anime titles for 4Kids in their heyday. Now focusing on his career as a stage and screen actor, most notably in House of Cards (US).
  • Brice Armstrong: Captain Ginyu and Lord Slug from Dragon Ball Z, the narrator of Dragon Ball, Sugoro in Dragon Ball GT, Tim Marcoh from Fullmetal Alchemist, many roles in Case Closed, among others. He retired around 2009 (likely due to his age), and his continuing roles have been replaced.
  • Christine Auten: Worked on several titles for ADV Films during the 1990's and also did some work with Funimation. Stopped doing voicework in 2012 and currently works as a producer for SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas. However, she briefly made her return in Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse and Akame ga Kill! in 2015 respectively for Sentai Filmworks.
  • Kristian Ayre: Worked with The Ocean Group from 2001-2008. Now retired from voice acting altogether, working in the marketing business in Toronto.
  • Troy Baker: Started out as a voice actor for Funimation with his well known roles as Excalibur from Soul Eater and Greed Ling in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. He eventually moved to Los Angeles in 2006 to seek for more voice acting opportunities (mostly in Video Games and several Western Animation), and later become a well-known video game voice actor in AAA titles and well known for his motion capture work in his video game roles. In addition, he also pursued a career as a rock musician. It also doesn't help to note that he eventually became a union voice actor in the same league like Crispin Freeman and Steve Blum, thus making it more difficult to either reprise his older video game and anime roles, or land new anime roles. The fact that he stopped voicing Yamato in the union-dubbed Naruto Shippuden in 2014, which was darrin'd by Matthew Mercer, shows that he's probably stopped doing anime voice acting, possibly for good. In 2018 when he surprisingly appeared in the anime adaptation of Baki, though whether this means he's finally doing dub work again is still unknown. He also reprised his role of Schneizel El Britannia for Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection in 2019.
  • Amy Birnbaum: Voice of Max in Pokémon and Téa Gardner in Yu-Gi-Oh!. She hasn't done any voice acting since 2007. Returned as Téa in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions.
  • Nicole Bouma: Known for her voice work on Shakugan no Shana and Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Bouma hasn't done any new roles since 2011.
  • Lanny Broyles: Worked with Tokyo-based Frontier Enterprises in the '80s and '90s. Now an English teacher at the Waseda College of International Language Vocational School.
  • Steve Bulen: Known for his voice work on Code Geass and Trigun. Bulen hasn't done any new roles in anime since 2008.
  • Petrea Burchard: Best known for voicing Ryoko in Tenchi Muyo! and Miho Miwakura in Serial Experiments Lain (along with some work in western animation, notably F.R.A.N. in the "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" cartoon). She retired from voice acting around 2005, and did not reprise her role of Ryoko for the third Tenchi OVA and Tenchi Muyo! GXP. She's now a writer, and occasionally appears in commercials. She came out of retirement for the dub of the Ai Tenchi Muyo! short series in 2018.
  • Dameon Clarke: Started out at Funimation as the voice of Cell and Scar, moved to Los Angeles and now only does live-action TV and a few video games. Although he did return to reprise his role as Cell for Dragon Ball Z Kai and has continued to voice Cell in most big-name projects as recently as Dragon Ball Fighter Z in 2018; he also returned to voice Paragus again for Dragon Ball Super: Broly in 2019.

She didn't have any new roles in anime after 2011, with her most recent roles being a reprisal of Suiseiseki from Rozen Maiden: Träumend, and Mihoshi for the Ai Tenchi Muyo dub and Nunnally in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection.
  • Scott Freeman: Best known for roles in Funimation, especially Issei in High School DXD. Fired in 2015 after getting arrested for possession of child pornography.
  • Michael Forest: Last anime role was in 2009; now occasionally does live-action work and interviews about his decades-long career.

  • Illich Guardiola: Hasn't had any new voice acting roles since being caught with a relationship with a minor; the circumstances of his inactivity afterwards are debatable, with differing theories claiming either Sentai Filmworks hasn't been casting him in anything for fear of looking bad in the wake of his relationship coming out or Guardiola himself has been lying low voluntarily, including refusing any new voice acting job offers that might have come his way since.
  • J.C. Henning: Appeared in several dubs for Intersound, Streamline Pictures and Animaze throughout the 80's and 90's, usually under her maiden name Joan-Carol O'Connell.

While he is still prominent in video games and western animation, he has all but retired in the field of anime, with his role as Sesshomaru being recast to Michael Daingerfield in InuYasha: The Final Act.
  • Dale D. Kelly: Best known as the original Captain Ginyu, as well as the narrator, in the early years of Funimation’s in-house DBZ dub. Left Funimation for unknown reasons in 2002, and all of his roles were replaced (Kyle Hebert became the narrator, and Brice Armstrong got Ginyu).
  • Amanda Winn-Lee: Known for her role as Yukiko Amagi in Persona 4, Persona 4: Arena Ultimax and Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

She mostly seems to be focusing on her family and singing career.
  • Vic Mignogna: Known for a lot of roles, such as Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist and Broly in Dragon Ball. His career was put in limbo in 2019 amid numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him, as Funimation specifically blacklisted him as of February 11, and his voice acting career in Los Angeles is also in limbo.

    Other 
  • Quinton Flynn, who is known for his work in video games and western animation (for example Raiden in Metal Gear Solid), has done some anime voice work particularly Iruka Umino in Naruto and Kon in Bleach.

Latin-American Spanish

Here's a list of noteworthy Latin-Spanish dub voice actors. Voice actors are usually not exclusive to one studio or region, and several countries have their own studios - this list is separated by country.

Most Latin-Spanish dubs are recorded in Mexico, though other countries have also produced their own dubs.

    Voice Actors 

Mexico based actors
