  1. Most excellent. Quinton Flynn is more anime, that’s always good.

  2. NO!!!!!!!!!! Why not Steven Blum for Kakashi???? I have been waiting the whole long summer and expected him to be playing Kakashin. =.= so dissapointed, well hope he will appear more later on. Maybe playing Sasuke’s brother heh? haha awsome.

  4. Should’t that be Tsunade instead of Tsunami? I’m not familiar with any of Naruto’s VA’s works, but I’m looking forward to how she handles him. ūüôā

  5. I don’t really know much about the show, so I just used the names ANN got. There were a few spelling errors in the cast names though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the names were wrong too.

  7. Tsunami was Inari’s mother (from the Big Naruto Bridge arc.)

    I’m actually glad they didn’t casy Steve Blum in Kakashi’s role. Although he’s done som any things in the past (and he is playing Zabuza,) it’s starting to get a bit tiresome to see him play every super-cool male character in an anime. ^^; Just my opinion.

  10. You’re putting way too much faith into IMDB. Anyone can submit info to them, and they don’t do any fact checking. Like the previous cast list they had (the one with Johnny Yong Bosch as Naruto), this is almost certainly a just made up rumor.

  12. It would be marvelous if Crispin Freeman were cast as Orochimaru-he’s an amazing voice actor(especially for slimy villains like this guy!). However, I did see somewhere that Tony Danza would be Orochimaru. Dang…no offense, Mr. Danza, but Crispin was made for this kinda role!
