Greetings Blue Exorcist fans! We have a Blue Exorcist dub trailer that is brought to you by Johnny Yong Bosch (Voice of Ichigo Kurosaki and Lelouch Lamperouge) and Bryce Papenbrook (Voice of Kida Masaomi and Hanabusa Aidou). Johnny will do the voice of Yukio Okumura while Bryce does the voice of Rin Okumura.

In the video, the two voice actors announced that there will be a new online network, Neon Alley Lineup. This website will start up in September. Neon Alley Lineup is a part of Viz Media and it is a anime streaming website.

Here is the website: www.neonalley.com

So far they announced these shows:

Exclusive Dub Anime

  • Naruto Shippuden
  • Tiger & Bunny
  • Inuyasha - The Final Act
  • Zetman
  • Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne

Uncut Anime

  • Vampire Knight
  • Naruto
  • Death Note
  • Kekkaishi

Why did they wait until now to dub the series? You can only buy the DVD volumes in sub and they are products of Aniplex (I was thinking the show was licensed by NIS but I was wrong). I guess it's good Viz is getting other anime series since Naruto and Bleach will only last a bit longer.

Bryce has a decent voice. I like numerous roles Bosch has done but when he is a supporting character/sidekick, I really don't like how he does his voice. Plus, I usually don't like the character, either.

@sotyfan16:

Thanks Sotyfan16.

For me, Yukio needs to have a deeper voice, and Rin is okay, but he needs a spunkier or more rebellious voice. The dub voice I like so far is Rin and Yukio's father.

It's a good thing they put it on Neon Alley. I can't wait to hear the Shiemi and Shura's voices.

Hey everyone! I have some good news. There's a dub trailer for Blue Exorcist. What do you guys and gal think about the voices?

That's awesome!! although the voice of Rim doesn't suit him IMO but I'll get use to it... but the rest were great!! I can't wait to see who does Mephisto's voice and also Kuro's voice, Because those two are my favorite characters... especially Kuro!!! he is a BEAST!

@DBZ_universe:

Oh yeah, I forgot about those guys. Mephisto is a cool guy, and I agree about Rin's dub voice. It could be that I'm so used to Rin's voice in Japanese. Yeah, you're right about that.

@takashichea: Yeah that could be it I am also use to their Japanese voice, also honestly when I saw your blog title the first thing that came to my head was if Vic Mignogna was gonna do Rim's voice but I guess it wasn't.

@DBZ_universe: @takashichea: I agree with both of you, when I heard him say to Yukio "Even if there are things I can explain, there are some things I can't!". I think same as taka I'm used to his Japanese voice.

Thanks for posting!

@YukaTA: Yes, indeed.. I think the one who does Happy's dub voice should also do Kuro... in my opinion.

@DBZ_universe:

For Happy, I prefer Rie Kugimiya over Tia Ballard since Happy's sub voice is bit more masculine. Tia would be good for Kuro since Kuro is more feminine.

@takashichea: Oops!! accidentally replied to you as a PM!! sorry! but yeah Rie over Tia!

I agree!

@YukaTA: I was thinking that Johnny Depp would be great for Mephisto's voice...(and also for a live action film) but that's my opinion idk if you would agree...

@DBZ_universe:

Yeah, I agree since Johnny Depp did weird characters such as the Mad Hatter and Edward Scissors. It would be sweet if he's does voices of anime characters who are bizarre and funny.

@takashichea: Mephisto looks like Willy Wonka as well that's how it came to my head..

just edit his hair and costume a little... and walla you got Mephisto Depp XD

@DBZ_universe: @takashichea: I SO agree!! He really would suit him, because of his wackiness can be also alike Mephisto.
