It’s a very experienced cast, and they’ve all done a number of Bandai titles before. However, if you follow the link to Wendee Lee, you’ll see what has prompted complaints from some of the series’ fans: several members of the cast are a bit too experienced; in short, they’ve all done so many roles, they’ll sound like characters we know from other series. There’s something to be said either way for experienced vs. unknown VA’s. It will be interesting to see how well they work out, but I’m a sub, not a dub guy.
Wait, that sounded kinky….
