Hokage Titan and I teamed up to do a dreamcast of:
During a summer camp, 15 children, 8 males and 7 females, find a grotto by the sea. Deep within they discover working computers and some electronic equipment, and later the owner, a man called Kokopelli. Kokopelli claimed to be a programmer working on a brand new game, in which a large robot has to defend the Earth against alien invasions. He persuades the children to test the game and sign a contract. All but one of them signs, barely a moment later they mysteriously awaken on the shore believing what happened was just a dream.
Kokopelli - Sarifus
HT: Right away when I heard Kokopelli's voice in episode one it screamed Sarifus to me. Kokopelli is that older yet somber character who has a heavy heart and a guilty-ridden conscience. I won't spoil why he does here, all of you will have to watch this wonderful series to figure out why. ;D Regardless Sarifus is has that perfect tone and texture for a guy like Kokopelli and I'd really like to see what he'd do with it.
Koemushi a.k.a. Dung Beetle - ThePawt
HT: Now this was a hard character to cast. Koemushi, as Amy and I like to refer to him, was the original incubator. He looks like a harmless plush toy but makes young girls AND boys sign a contract which will ultimately spell their doom. But unlike Kyubey this little guy has a big temper, is very sadistic, and won't hesitate to kill you. So we need someone who can sound young, snide, and playfully sadistic and I think The Pawt could handle this very well.
Waku Takashi - Hokage Titan
AA: I couldn't not have this. Takashi is a character that oozes with energy and loudness and those are Pete's specialities when it comes to playing characters. He can play the confident, loud, happy-go-lucky characters with ease. Also, upon watching the series with him, I know for sure that he would have a great time playing Takashi.
Masaru Kodaka - RBMFaust
AA: Faust has a certain texture to his voice that is similar to the original VA for Masaru. He can also pull off a young yet slightly matured tone if he pitched his natural tone down a little. Also, Masaru is a completely different character from what Faust is typecast as so I'm pretty sure that he'd have great fun playing the sadistic little bugger.
Kako Isao - Akumaryu
HT: Even though this is a character that I don't necessarily like, you can't help but feel bad for him because he ends up going insane and dying before he even pilots Zearth. For Kako we need a guy who can handle all the different sides of Kako and be able to give each of these sides extra special care and that guy is Akumaryu.
Chizuru Honda - alchemymini331
AA: Cassie has an almost identical vocal pitch and tone to the original VA for Chizuru. She can pull off a sweet, sugary tone whilst also coming across as mysterious and sad. This would all be fitting for Chizuru and I'm sure that Cassie would have no problems in making her a believeable and sympathetic character.
Daiichi Yamura - BloodRedOath
HT: Daiichi was a pretty easy casting choice, we need someone who can sound young, yet a little deep, full of resolve and the will to fight to protect his family. BRO just comes to mind here especially after hearing playing characters like Ryohei from Hitman Reborn and Bon from Blue Exorcist, I can imagine a voice like either of those on Daiichi, and I believe in BRO's abilities so I'm sure he'd do well.
Mako Nakarai - Luchia
AA: Luchia is great at pulling off a soft character without making her sound far too young. However, she can also add energy that gives the character that confident edge. Mako is a character who knows what she is after and, despite being bullied, is quite content, if a tad melancholic, and I think that Luchia would enjoy playing her. Also a bonus that Mako is a seamstress who likes to create outfits, just like Luchia.
Kunihiko Moji - xSeo
AA: Probably a really common typecast on my end but Seo has that soft yet mature air when it comes to him playing characters. I am more than certain that he could make Moji sound his age but also give him that maturity that makes him seem intelligent, gentle and wise beyond his years.
Maki Ano - AmyAnn
HT: This is a choice that I think just has to be made. Even though Amy is seen in a lot of cutesy roles around here on the boards, she can play those really determined tomboy characters with ease. Listening back to her role as Subaru Konoe I can easily hear Amy playing Maki. It's a little change of pace and I think, while watching the series with her, she'd really enjoy this role and I wouldn't prefer it any other way.
Yousuke Kirie - McTricky
AA: Kirie is a very soft and sad sounding character, he doesn't have any loud moments in the entire time that he is on screen. McTricky, having done a number of quick lines for me, has shown me that he can do the more gentler voice and even his natural pitch is one that would fit Kirie. He would be able to make Kirie seem pitiful and weak but also giving him the strength he needs later on.
Aiko Tokosumi - RachelMichelle
AA: Rachel has a very good range on her and, seeing Aiko, I knew that she looked like a character that Rachel could play with ease. Rachel can pull off a sweet, innocent tone but I know that she would easily be able to handle Aiko's breakdowns, too, as she has a great array of emotions.
Misumi Tanaka - fairuza
HT: This was a no brainer, though Fairuza hasn't done much recently on the boards, I don't need a refresher to know that Uza can handle a mature, strong and independent woman with ease. Tanaka though seeming like an extra character at first grows into a large part of the story as she tries to protect and save the children from being killed and as you learn about her connection with Ushiro. Tanaka is a very respectable character so I'd like to see both the strong, military officer side and the softer, motherly side come out of Fairuza's performence as Tanaka.
Takami Komoda - Cydonia
AA: We know that this is a typecast but, right away, Cydonia came to mind when watching Takami. Cydonia can pull off a gentle, caring yet regal tone with her voice that would fit Takami perfectly. Also, Takami's speaking pitch isn't too far off of Cydonia's natural one so it wouldn't be a bother for her when it came to that.
Masamitsu Seki - TriPredRavage
HT: Introduced alongside Tanaka, Seki appeared as a seemingly unimportant extra character but he is a reoccuring and thoughtful Military officer, though he doesn't stray far from his orders like Tanaka he understands that he must help these kids at all costs. Seki in that deserves a voice that is strong, young, and dutiful, and I can't think of someone better then TriPredRavage. I'm more than certain he'd have fun with it.
Kanji Yoshikawa - JCx
AA: Probably the most difficult for us to choose was Kanji. We wanted someone who could sound like an overly-confident yet comforting teenager without sounding too soft or too high. After seeing a new fandub that he had put up, HT and I both agreed that JCx would be able to pull this off fittingly. Also, having worked with him in the past, I'm sure he could also pull off Kanji's more aggressive side.
Youko Machi - MissAck
AA: Upon first seeing her, Youko looks like a typecast for MissAck but there is alot more to her. She has the confident, curious girl attitude to begin with but becomes more mysterious and guilt-ridden as the series goes on. Knowing her as a person who excels in the energetic, confident girl roles, MissAck was an obvious choice and I know she can pull off Youko's change in personality as the series goes on and more information is given.
Jun Ushiro - RavenHunter
HT: Now here's a guy who I think doesn't get enough love and attention for his abilities as a voice actor. I've known Raven for a little while and he really knows how to handle his string of sadistic characters. Ushiro is just a character I think Raven should play, if Raven were to take say his Izaya voice and make it sound younger with a bit more of a angsty and cold tone that warms up later on he'd be the perfect Ushiro.
Kana Ushiro - pickle131
AA: Pickle, no doubt, is a star when it comes to the younger female roles. However, I had imagined Kana to have a cute, child tone whilst also having that bit of maturity there and Pickle has a fantastic range, her natural voice being close to what I imagined. She could make Kana adorable but give her that sense of responsibility.
