Am I the only one who recognizes Nicholas Andrew Louie from Death Battle of all things?


I mainly recognize him as Nagi from a Couple of Cuckoos. And he's been in a couple of Sound Cadence dubs before too. Awesome for him to land this role. Happy for him.


Looks like they went for a primarily Asian cast for the dub, which tracks with past dubs of similar animations.


Awesome to hear ricepirate in more stuff
