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.

Unfortunately, voice actors are also humans. Some gained fame, and then died. Here's some famous Japanese voice actors that have passed away, but have contributed a lot in the anime business:

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 used to be) and Canadian cities like Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary are thawed out every now and then, sometimes for new productions, but mostly for cast reprises. In addition, various cities around the world have been used to varying degrees of frequency, but are again no longer used.

Los Angeles, California: The location of Hollywood and thus is the place where most voice acting, not just anime, is recorded.

Dallas, Texas: Located not too far from the headquarters of Funimation, one of the most prolific anime distributors in the English speaking world. Some of the voice actors may work in Houston, while others has done voice work in Los Angeles (since Funimation also have close ties with many Los Angeles based studios, which are often used for Role Reprise for older titles that were dubbed in Los Angeles)

Houston, Texas: Location of the now defunct ADV Films, and its successor, Sentai Filmworks, both prolific distributors in their own rights, the forer of which was active even before Funimation. Some of the voice talent below may sometimes work with Funimation (which is indicated with parenthesis), although it is extremely rare for a Houston based voice actor to do voice work in Los Angeles (and those who do generally move to Los Angeles later on in their career).

Austin, Texas: A third city in Texas that was used for anime dubbing, most notably at Monster Island Studios, a rather obscure studio used by ADV for some of its dubs. Hasn't been used at all after Monster Islands shut down.

Wilmington, North Carolina: A rather uncommon dubbing location, but was one of the first due to the then-bustling scene of "Wilmywood". Last dub was 2005's Miami Guns; albeit actually in Asheville, North Carolina- but using a similar pool of actors

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

    Retired 
  • Stephen Apostolina: Provided 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).
  • 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 resides in Austin, Texas where she works as a producer for SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas. Interactive. However, she briefly made her return in Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse and Akame ga Kill! in 2015 respectively respectively, and To Love-Ru in 2020 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.
  • John Baddeley: A British native who did voice acting in anime in the '90s before retiring in 2007.
  • 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, showed that he probably stopped doing anime voice acting, possibly for good... that is, until 2018 when he surprisingly appeared in the anime adaptation of Baki, though whether or not 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, although she did return as Téa in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions. She currently lives in Atlanta, GA.

  • 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. However, 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 both Paragus for Dragon Ball Super: Broly and Kazuma in the Fruits Basket remake in 2019.

  • Peter Doyle: Was active from Los Angeles-based voice acting from approximately 2001 to 2009, with his last documented role being Dominic Sorel in Eureka Seven: Goodnight, sleep tight, young lovers, presumably retiring afterwards due to health issues, until he surprisingly returned to voice-over over a decade later in 2020 for Anemone: Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution.
  • Rebecca Forstadt: Best known for her roles as Lynn Minmei in the English version of Robotech, Nunnally Lamperouge in Code Geass and Mihoshi in Tenchi Muyo!. She didn't have any new roles in anime after 2011, with her most recent roles being a reprise 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 before being paroled.
  • Michael Forest: Last anime role was in 2009; now occasionally does live-action work and interviews about his decades-long career. He later reprised his roles as Arakawa in The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan and Blair in Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution 1 in 2015 and 2018 respectively.

  • Illich Guardiola: Hasn't had any new voice acting roles since being caught in 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. Probably best known for playing Clarisee in Streamline's dub of The Castle of Cagliostro and Benisato in Ninja Scroll. Hasn't had any dubbing roles since 2004.
  • David Kaye: Highly prominent in anime that was dubbed in Canada such as Sesshomaru in Inuyasha, Soun Tendo in Ranma ½ and Recoome in the Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z. Kaye had moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to further his voice acting career. 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).

Her last major anime role to date was reprising Yukiko in Persona 4: The Animation. She did provide additional directing and consultation on the dub for A Silent Voice. Amanda did mention via Twitter that she does show up if a job comes her way once in a while.
  • Shelby Lindley: Known for her role as Tsumugi "Mugi" Kotobuki in K-On! and Hitomi Shizuki in Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Lindley hasn't had any new roles in anime since 2015 with her last role being Ami Tabata in Noragami (but the role was instead filled by Caitlin Glass as a last minute substitute in the second series). She seems to be focusing on her singing career providing vocals in the Folk/Pop Band duo Shelby & Tieg with Tieg Johnson. As of 2020, Shelby did some voice acting, but in cartoons so far.
  • Sherry Lynn: Best known for her roles as Sakura Matou in Fate/stay night and Sasami Masaki Jurai in Tenchi Muyo!. She didn't have any new roles in anime since 2011 with her most recent roles being a reprise of Hina-Ichigo from Rozen Maiden: Träumend and the dub of the Ai Tenchi Muyo! series.
  • Tristan MacAvery: Original English dub voice of Gendo Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion, retired from voice-acting after a falling-out with ADV. Now enjoying a career in writing.
  • Dave Mallow: Was active in LA through the long stretches of anime dubbing, retired in 2016-2017.
  • Meredith McCoy: Best known as the voice of Android 18 in Dragon Ball Z, Launch (both sides) in Dragon Ball, Fujiko Mine in Lupin III, Maria Ross in Fullmetal Alchemist, and others. She still does occasionally voice act, but mostly left the business around 2008. She reprised her role of Maria Ross in Fulllmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, but did not reprise her role of Android 18 in Dragon Ball Kai (she was asked though, but the role was instead filled by Colleen Clinkenbeard as a last minute substitute), but she did return as 18 in Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’. 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. Things went south in 2019 amid numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him, as Funimation specifically blacklisted him as of February 11, and after losing a lawsuit he had filed to get him off the blacklist it's safe to say his career is officially over. He did, however, have a say in who would replace him as Broly, with Johnny Yong Bosch being confirmed for the role in December 2019 and Bosch himself confirming Mignogna wanted him to take over if anything should happen to him.
  • Lara Jill Miller: Known for her role as Kari Kamiya in Digimon. Hasn't done any new roles in anime since 2008 with her last anime role being Kapelteta Fernandez in Strait Jacket.

  • Stephanie Nadolny: Best known for voicing Goku as a child (as well as his son Gohan as a child) in the Dragon Ball franchise. Hasn't worked in any Anime since 2006. Though she continued to work in various Dragon Ball video games as late as 2010, Colleen Clinkenbeard officially replaced her starting with Dragon Ball Kai. Since then, her only voice work has been in OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, though only for a few episodes. As revealed during the dying stages of Vic Mignogna's lawsuit against Funimation, she's firmly convinced that toxic masculinity at the company has had everything to do with her inactivity.
  • Nancy Novotny: Worked on several titles for ADV Films during the 1990's and early-mid 2000's, and Sentai Filmworks during the 2010's. Also did some work with Funimation. Stopped doing voicework in 2017 and currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
  • Maggie Blue O'Hara: English voice of Lime in Saber Marionette J and Holly from Monster Rancher and also Bulma in a few episodes of Dragon Ball Z and the first Dragon Ball movie.

In the early 2000s he moved to California and in 2002 he became Lt.

He's still somewhat active in the ADR business to this day, with his latest credit being for the 2018 PBS documentary God Knows Where I Am. He's since returned to the voice-over field, albeit not in his usual directing chair at Du Art, but rather at his own studio, 3Beep, and does provide additional voices for NYAV Post on occasion.
  • Dean Wein: Best known for voicing Jubei Kibagami in Ninja Scroll and Boma in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, the latter of which he returned for (presumably at the behest of voice director and star Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) in 2020 for Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045.
  • Kerry Williams: Best known as Casey/Nanoka in Pokemon, she hasn't appeared in any shows often after 4Kids collapsed. She did return to Pokémon: Black & White as Katharine.
  • Mike Worman: A prolific Tokyo-based voice actor in the '80s, most notably voicing Mamaux in the Frontier Enterprises dub of The Mystery of Mamo. Retired sometime in the '90s.

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.
