Mt Minakami Destroyed Audition Call
Project information - I have been committed to dubbing three particular episodes of the anime "Guyver" for the past few months. I have, however, realised that it is now impossible for me to progress further than the fourth section without asking for other VAs. It is for this reason that I am looking for people to voice characters that have newly appeared. I am also looking for VAs to play characters that I myself have voiced in previous segments of the same clip series. This is because I'm wanting to focus more on certain voices and want to get as many people involved as possible.
If You Haven't Seen The Anime:
Guyver is the story of Sho Fukamachi, a highschool student who gets thrown into the underground world of Chronos (an organisation bent on world domination) when he finds and mistakenly activates a Guyver Unit; a symbiotic suit of armour of still unknown power. Chronos sends their most powerful leader, Richard Guyot to capture Sho and his friends. Unbeknownst to Chronos, Guyot is hell-bent on obtaining a Guyver of his own in order to take over Chronos and rule the world himself.
Along the way, Sho meets Agito Makishima, Masaki Murakami and Aptom. Agito is the son of a Chronos official, as well as the owner of a Guyver Unit; he wants to overthrow Chronos and needs Sho's help. Murakami and Agito help Sho to escape from Chronos. Aptom is an experiment test subject and treated like a lab rat. Swearing revenge on Sho for killing his only friends, in self defence, he sets out and rebels against Chronos so that he can one day fight Sho.
All of these elements interlope at Mt Minakami. A giant Chronos base hidden inside an entire mountain. While Sho and his friends attempt to destroy the base by launching a relic space ship from the bottom level, Aptom infiltrates and attempts to kill as many Chronos officials as he can. At the same time, unaware of this, the Chronos council realise Guyot's plans and attempt to stop him. They arrive too late as their leader; the seemingly omnipotent Archanfel arrives and battles Guyot. Resorting to desperate measures, Guyot exhausts himself creating a Quasi Black Hole and collapsing it, killing Archanfel. Becoming unconscious, he falls to the lowest level of the base, where he inadvertently meets Sho's friends.
It is from this point that I need a cast.

Audition Lines 1Screaming in fear) No!!
Audition Line 2: (Sobbing and whispering sorrowfully. Pleading.) No. You can't die! Murakami...Please!
Audition Line 3: (Confusion) Who the hell is that guy?!
Voice Range: Mid-Low
Bio: Originally a freelance reporter, he was captured by Chronos and turned into a test subject for the final form of the principal villain Richard Guyot. Having escaped, he seeks to bring down Chronos and help his friends no matter the cost. While commanding immense power, the more he uses his abilities the more it takes it's tole. He currently has one year to live and is determined to sacrifice himself in the final battle to allow his friends to escape. Only Mizuki is aware of this.
Audition Line 1: (Almost mocking confidence) I have a feeling you're not so tough, having used up your gravity spheres. I bet I can take you down without even breaking a sweat!
Audition Line 2: (Gentle reassurance) You take good care of Sho. Alright.
Audition Line 3: (Filled with determination and resolve) I can't let it end here. No matter how powerful you are, I will find the strength to oppose you. I have got to protect those who will carry on this fight after I'm gone.
Voice Range: Mid-Slightly high; Kind of nasally
Bio: A brilliant scientist kidnapped by Chronos and held against his will. He harboured the heroes in the lowest level of the Chronos base, to hide them, and orchestrated the escape plan. A determined man, he seeks to help as many people escape as possible. He respects Murakami a great deal, due to being close friends with his mentor, Dr Yammamura.
Audition Line 1: (Confused yet still informative) 'I'm not sure... But I know we cant afford to be standing about. Let's go.
Audition Line 2: (Speculation and concern) I'm not sure, but it seems that device is able to unequip the Guyver armour...
Audition Line 3: (Spoken weakly and gasping) Murakami is willing to give up everything to save you... His sacrifice musn't be in vain...
Voice Range: Low
Bio: Best friend of Sho and older brother of Mizuki, he was drawn into the world of Chronos when he and Sho found the Guyver1 Unit. Having been the one to initially activate it, he blames himself for Sho's situation and seeks to do whatever it takes to redeem himself. Having been in the same class as Makishima for several years, he distrusts him and often suspects his long-term acquaintance, constantly questioning his motives. A loyal friend.
Audition Line 1: (Confusion and agitation) Oh man, now what's going on?!
Audition Line 2: (Sorrow and understanding) Oh Mizuki... Did you already know?
Dr Hamilcar Barcus:
Voice Range: Low and raspy
Bio: A genius scientist and the founder of Chronos. Having discovered the sleeping Archanfel over 300 years prior, he became the second Zoalord. A ruthless and sadistic man, he loves to experiment on humans, in an attempt to create ever stronger Zoanoids. He is responsible for granting Richard Guyot his absurd level of power. His loyalty to Archenfel is without question, as can be seen when he still believes his master to be alive, despite being sucked into a black hole, created by Guyot.
Audition Line 1: (Sorrowfully) I encountered him shortly before escaping the base.
Audition Line 2: (Determined and informative) I trust you all saw that flash just now. That was a Guyver's "mega-smasher". They seem to have taken over the relic.
Toshiyaki "Bio-Freezer" Hayami:
Voice Range: Mid-Low
Bio: A scientist captured against his will, who follows Dr Odagiri very loyally, often acting as his second in command.
Audition Line 1: (Confusion) I dont understand...What just happened?

Age: 296 (Physically in his late 40's)
Voice Range: Low and commanding
Bio: The third in command of Chronos. A very proud man, despite acknowledging that both Richard Guyot and Archanfel surpass him in power. He is extremely loyal to Barcus, due to him providing him with eternal longevity.
Audition Line 1: (Curious and confused) I'm sensing a large scale distortion in gravity, emanating from somewhere below.
Audition Line 2: (Shocked) Destroy the relic?!
Audition Line 3: (Calmly explaining) The man is far more powerful than even we dare to imagine. He's the founder of Chronos. The very first Zoalord.
Frederich Von Purgustal:
Age: 275 (Physically in his early fifties)
Voice Range: Mid-Low
Bio: A powerful Zoalord and close friend of Sin. Despite hearing rumours that Guyot was the strongest Zoalord, he is still baffled by his power. He is extremely loyal to both Barcus and Archanfel.
Audition Line 1: (Baffled and full of awe) I had heard Guyot was the strongest Zoalord, but this is beyond belief.
Audition Line 2: (Confusion) Forbidden power? You mean the Quasi Black Hole?
Audition Line 3: (Disbelief) That's absurd!
Age: 186 (Physically in his 70's)
Voice Range: High and an kind of cackle
Bio: An extremely powerful Zoalord. Ludicrously sadistic and filled with a deep seated superiority complex.
Audition Line 1: (In a matter-of-fact manner) You seem to forget. Guyot was the last of us to become a Zoalord. He hasn't had an opportunity to meet Archanfel yet.
Audition Line 2: (Admonishment) Guyot, you're a fool if you think you can use that here. Who could you be fighting that would force you to release such power?
Voice Range: High
Bio: A brilliant but insane scientist and chief of the lowest level of Chronos headquarters. Obsessed with his research, it was due to his tunnel vision on his current project that the heroes of the story were able to hide from Chronos inside his OWN DEPARTMENT. The man who activated the "Unit Remover"; a mysterious device that proves devastating to a Guyver host. A coward.
Audition Line 1: (Shock and dismay) The "Remover" is activating on its own!?
Audition Line 2: (Terrified) No...I can't die! Please Richard! Help me!
Audition Line 3: (Laughing maniacally) I've done it! I've finally found a way to activate the remover!!

Audition Line 1: (Joy) He launched the ship?!
Voice Range: High-High Mid
Bio: An ordinary high school girl drawn into the world of Chronos when she is kidnapped, in an attempt to capture her brother and Sho. She has trouble adapting to the constant threat and is in a weak emotional state.

Audition Line 2: (Confusion) What's happening, doctor?
