“Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory” English Dub Cast



  • As some of you are well aware, a new anime & season of "Full Metal Panic" is coming out soon in Japan titled "Invisible Victory" and I know there will be a SimulDub on this sometime in the future. I know this will probably be very unlikely to happen but just in case, I want to be assured that whoever the ADR director will be, that they will bring back the original English Dub cast for this production. Especially Chris Patton and Luci Christian ( who both are two in my list of all time favorite voice actors ) as Sousuke Sagara and Kaname Chidori. As well with Hilary Haag as Captain Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa, Blake Shepard as Leonard Testarossa, Vic Mignogna as Kurz Weber, and Alison Keith as Melissa Mao. "Full Metal Panic" was one of the first anime series I ever watched as a kid, and having the original English cast will make it feel we're continuing right where we left off from the last season "Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid". As well the characters that I've mentioned are some of the most well known roles by each of these voice actors respectively. Thank you all for your time and consideration.

    P.S. I would also like to respectfully suggest Chris Guererro ( best known for his role as Ainz Ooal Gown / Momonga in the SimulDub of "Overlord" ) as the character Andrei Sergeivich Kalinin ( who was originally portrayed by the late Mike Kleinhenz ).

    Sincerely,

    Beau Murphy

    I wouldn't complain if the original voice cast got the nod myself. I don't think Hilary Haag does a lot of voicework for Funimation (seems she is in the wrong part of the country most of the time) but HOPEFULLY they can work out the logistics.

    Also don't forget Kyoko Tokiwa, who while mostly a side character does have a more important role to play in the story assuming they follow the light novels, as I've heard they have. She's played by one of my all-time favorites, Monica Rial.



  • Necro..

    I wouldn't mind if the announcer from Fairy Tail gets the nod or even Ed Blaylock (king Bradley from FMA). Sorry to Necro I was looking for info on the new cast to see if all the old voices were coming back or not.



  • I want to see if Funimation can get at least most of the original voice cast, especially the main characters (such as Chris Patton, Luci Christian, and Hillary Haag). Since they live in Texas, I think its possible.



  • Didn't Chris Patton boycott Funimation a while back? If that still stands then I severely worry for the outcome of a proper dub for this show.



  • @Motrax

    no, the commute from Houston to Dallas and back was too much for him to handle and he almost died one night on his way home because he was too tired to drive. he has been in some simuldubs recently, so he's figured something out

    In recent years he has been on several Funimation dubs, including DRIFTERS and Kino's Journey: the Beautiful World. The only main point of complication is that he has recently moved to California, but considering the likes of Cherami Leigh, Cassandra Lee Morris, Todd Habberkorn etc. have been regulars in recent Funimation Simuldubs and SourceConnect is a thing, that's really not a difficulty to work around anymore so he could still record over the internet for FMP.



  • Yeah I pretty much expect Chris, Luci, Monica & Vic back for sure, Allison Kieth is a maybe since I don't think she's ever done any Funi work before, and Hilary Haag is pretty much up in the air, since she's popular enough that they've probably asked about her availability before for other simuldubs. So we'll see how it plays out.



  • @Series5Ranger Allison did the Funimation-dubbed Evangelion movies.



  • Heads up; Mike McFarland directing per the video they had with the MMA fighter today
