At a panel held today at Anime Expo 2009, FUNimation Entertainment announced the English dub cast for the fantasy adventure series Slayers Revolution from Enoki Films. The all-star cast features the voice actors from the previous hit releases The Slayers...

Really glad to hear Lisa Ortiz and Eric Stuart are on board. I was worried they wouldn't be on the cast and although I wouldn't have complained (I'd just watch it subbed), since Slayers is one of the few properties I actually enjoy(ed) dubbed, to the point of preferring it that way, having them return makes me super happy. :catgirl:

Veronica Taylor reprising Amelia?! With Crispin Freeman as Zelgadis again? Woohoo! I am so on the preorder list. More than anything else those two made Slayers for me. It's one reason I dont particularly care about the OVA's (although I did like the movie) because there is no Amelia or Zelgadis in them. I'm sure it's just the "Must Slay Evil!" aura that Amelia gives off and Veronica just nails.
Best news out of AX. :noodle:

Yes! I'm glad that Crispin Freeman is rephrasing his role as Zelgadis. :)

Getting most of the original cast back = WIN. I don't think I could listen to a dub that didn't at least bring back Lisa Ortiz for Lina; not having her is one of the BIG reasons I can't stand the Movie/OVA dubs.
I liked the original Xellos, but I'm sure the recast will be fine.

Would have preferred Cynthia Martinez as Lina. Peter Cullen would have been fun as Zelgadis, with maybe Susan Blu as Amelia, and Frank Welker handling various demons/monsters and maybe using his "Fred from Scooby-Doo" voice as Gourry.

This is fantastic news! I'm very happy that they managed to get the 4 main VAs to reprise their roles. It's sad to hear that David Moo will not be able to return, but I am rather curious to hear Michael Sinterniklaas' take on Xellos. The fact that he has voiced Dean Venture makes me giggle quite a bit.

Return of my favorite VAs in my favorite roles of theirs - I'm there!
Looking forward to this and just waiting to pre-order.

Any new dub with Lisa Ortiz in it is a much watch for me :) . I can't miss the long awaited return of one of my favorite voice actors after all. I really hope she starts showing up in some more dubs. I sure hope so! I miss hearing that great voice, and she's an amazing actress to boot.
