Outbreak Company English Dub

My first anime voice over work is being released March 3rd!  Sentai Filmworks officially announced the cast, so I get to talk about it now.  This tongue-in-cheek show is a love letter to all things fantasy and anime as a young otaku (anime aficionado) is dropped into a world where everything he has spent years idolizing actually exists!  We’re talking elf-maids, dragons, wolf-girls, dwarves, a tiny Empress, and so much more.

I play the lead character’s inspiring field trip teacher (creatively named “Ms. Teacher”) in a flashback, who validates Shinichi’s love of manga as another avenue for learning about life.  Soooo basically what every 12-year-old boy wishes to hear.

Then I also voice the hot-headed Elfko, head of the elven contingent in Shinichi’s new school.  Really enjoyed getting to participate in one of those classically anime, knock-down, drag-out fights during which everyone’s faces get red and scarily large.  Plus, the artwork for Elfko is pretty great, right?

Overall, Outbreak Company is tons of fun and features several of my favorite Houston actors.  Check it out here once the English dub becomes available March 3rd!  Points to you if you can find the third, smaller character I voice…


Anime Voice Work

Had two more recording sessions for Sentai Filmworks last week as I continue down the rabbit hole of anime voice acting!  While my brother and I only watched a few easily accessible shows growing up (Gundam Wing, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z…) it has been fascinating to dive back into this sci-fy meets fantasy meets war-epic meets teen-romantic-comedy world.  The creativity of the plots and worlds is amazing and getting to voice multiple characters in the same session is a fun, vocal gymnastic event.  Tuesday was my first time spending a couple hours on the same character, though that project won’t be released for another few months.  In the meantime, stay tuned — the first series I recorded will be out soon!
