#25733 Emulating a previous thread, in a hypothetical scenario whom would you choose for the English cast of Ai Tenchi Muyo!? Can be any character(s), even the original girls and the main man himself (though in my case, I'm sticking to the new characters since I'd want the original dub actors to return).

I don't have many ideas myself yet admittedly, but here we go!

I'd seriously consider casting Colleen Clinkenbeard as Ukan Kurihara.

I first took notice of her commanding, feminine voice via her role as Riza Hawkeye of Fullmetal Alchemist. Many here will likely recognize her recently as Scarlet from one Space Dandy. Anyway, she can have a bit more of a mature edge to her voice, so combine that with her knack of portraying authoritative female figures and I think she'd be suited for the senpai role (plus it'd be fun to hear a bit of a sensual, possessive coating on her lovely voice).

Have at it!

And if there are any potential distributors lurking, take notes!

#25735 Nice idea Who! I also totally agree that Colleen Clinkenbeard would make a awesome Ukan.

I say (and some my disagree) I think Caitlin Glass would be a good choice for Beni or Hachiko ^^

#25737 For my limited part here, the OAV3 cast, with even the OVA3 Ryoko inclusive (at least,) for the proper cast, for the Tenchi cast voices there. As for the rest, got no clue whom to choose.

Actually, a question there, is Noike on in this Ai TM cast? Unsure whom of the Tenchi crew, we have yet to see, would be inclusive, for a discussion like this.

I don't think there are any returning characters we haven't seen yet, with the possible exception of Ryo-Ohki, but even she's kinda up in the air at this point.

Noike isn't in Ai. Same with other older characters like Kiyone and Nagi. If they were going to appear they likely would've been announced alongside the rest of the cast back in August.

Unless you have an amazing suggestion for an original cast member, please try and keep this to the new girls, we all want the originals back, NOW, with that being said

*PERSONAL OPINIONS AHEAD*

While I think Colleen would be "the" go to choice for Ukan, I feel like she's become the typecast for "Woman in charge" characters, and in this instance, I believe another mainstay in the form of Monica Rial would be better suited to the role.

Why? If you listen to Colleen as Scarlet for example, she's got quite a bit of bass in her voice, and I just don't see that coming out of Ukan. Colleen DEFINITELY could ACT the role, but I think Monica would nail it.

I could definitely see Caitlin Glass as Hachiko!

I guess I should also add something to be critiqued too! lol

Momo - Stephanie Sheh

After hearing her do Usagi for Viz's new Sailor Moon dub, she is pretty much tailor made to be a "meatball" head tuxedodouche

How you turn my world?
You precious thing.
You starve and near exhaust me.

Everything I've done,
I've done for you.
I move the stars for no one!

You've run so long.
You've run so far.
Your eyes can be so cruel,
Just as I can be so cruel,
Oh I do believe in you.
Yes I do.

Live without your sunlight.
Love without your heartbeat.
I...
I...
Can't live within you...

I can't live within you

I...
I... can't live within you.

#26936 My thoughts on dub for Ai post

So far I see candidates:

Beni: Caitlin Glass
Ukan: Colleen Clinkenbeard, Monica Rial
Hachiko: Caitlin Glass
Momo: Stephanie Sheh

None for Hana, Touri, Aoi, or Yuki.

My candidates will be very limited because the choices would have to come from animes that had a lot of females in them and I watch a very limited amount of anime dubbed but I will try to add more voices to the list.

#26937 A list of voices I have picked from anime I have watched and not have assorted them in a character yet, I have planned them for debate: Laura Bailey, Lara Cody, Bryn Apprill, Morgan Garrett, K.T. Gray, Skyler McIntosh

#26938 I think Laura Bailey could pull off Hana. Heck I think I think she would be a good Momo too but I think she would be better as Hana for some reason. I don't really know to much about the other voice actresses listed so I can't really say to much about anyone else. (I haven't watched dubbed in quite awhile)

If Luci Christian is stilling doing voice acting which I'm not sure off, she would make a great Rui! ^^ (I think anyway)

Great choice Snow! I had almost forgot about Luci Christian

Personally, I could see Luci Christian just KNOCKING Yuki out of the park, I can just hear her voice coming out of her,
