    lol Matthew Calbraith Perry Jr. is voiced by Junichi Suwabe! Suwabe voiced Atobe in Prince of Tennis, Greed from (the first) Fullmetal Alchemist, Archer from Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Extra, Dandy from Space Dandy. Not as amazing as Kazuya Nakai Engrish (aka Masamune Date from Sengoku Basara), but I’m expecting some GREAT Engrish from Perry Jr!

      Okiayu Ryotarou is still my favorite Engrish seiyuu, but Suwabe is pretty awesome, too.

  • Ziggy Wish

    I wonder if this going to be as successful as the Uta no Prince Sama series. It have a lot of VA’s from that franchise over her on the rock franchise.

    Sentai Filmworks Licensed Samurai Jam-Bakumatsu Rock. Probably won’t see it for a while on DVD/Blu-ray though.
