    also the thing with him sounding like kakashi (not sure if i should say this, because it's a spoiler, but since the thread says there's a slight chance of them popping up) is that pain fights kakashi around book 45 so thats gonna sound stupid when that fight comes and they both have the same voice actor. they should probably get someone else to him.

    That not a spoiler to me. As long as I don't know the outcome yet.

    I was thinking dan green could play kakuzu that would be fun

    I immediately recognized Quinton Flynn and Wittenberg, and I liked them both. However, it was too clear that Wittenberg sounded like Kakashi- so I imagine they'll change him. I hope they stick with Flynn though, as I really enjoyed his twisted delivery.

    I can't tell, how many VA's are speaking in the Akatsuki meeting of 135? It sounds like there are few Akatsuki, or one, but I can't tell.
    These are the lines, as I think they are:

    Kisame: How long has it been since we've all been together like this?
    Zetsu BLACK: 7 years, not since Orochimaru left us.
    ???: And now Orochimaru has the Sharangan.
    ???: Is that true, Itachi? Your little Brother?
    Itachi: (grimace)

    Deidara: Don't be impatient, heh. We'll deal with our old friend Orochimaru in time, hm. We only have three years in which to prepare, and we all know what we have to do to be ready, right? Hmm heh heh.

    Pain: OF course, no mistakes. Remember what we seek: Everything! Including the Nine-Tailed Fox.

    I believe the most common interpretation of the two mystery speakers is:

    Kakuzu: And now Orochimaru has the Sharangan.
    Sasori [in his puppet]: Is that true, Itachi? Your little Brother?

    "???: And now Orochimaru has the Sharingan." is Sasori (puppet)
    "???: Is that true, Itachi? Your little Brother?" was probably an old member of akatsuki, the one that kakuzo killed.

    It's fine to say names without spoiler tags, just don't say who they are or what they do in the manga/japanese anime.

    Something I can't help but wonder:

    Assuming Kakuzu and Sasori inside Hiruko are the two mystery speakers, will they keep the VAs they used or would they search for other VAs like what happened with Itachi?

    It's not really a question that can be answered by anyone other than the cast and crew, but it's something to think about.

    Does anyone think Johnny Yong Bosch would be a better Pein than Dave Wittenberg?

    How about Vic Mignogna as Kakuzu and Michelle Ruff as Konan?

    Who would be a good VA for Madara?

    vic would be good as Hidan if he deepened his voice. I think Johnny would sound to young I think

    Yay Quinton Flynn! :3 He's so perfect for Deidara!! Chris Sabat would be perfect for Kakuzu too, but its too bad he only dubs FUNimation...

    Vic voicing Hidan would remind me of Broly, I think he would be good for the role. Agreed, Johnny sounds to young to voice Pein.

    The problem with Pain is that He's one of the only characters that I don't have a voice for when I read his lines.

    Even the Japanese VA is kinda generic and plain, imo.

    okay we all know chris sabat wont va for naruto so drop it already besides his voice always sounds the same anyway i hate his zolo for teh dub of one piece.

    as for pein he looks young so he can be voiced by someone young. haku's va would probably be good but remember konan hasn't spoken in the sub yet. i wish i knew a good one for hidan and deidara

    kakuzu and sasori need deep voices.

    I wouldn't say Chris Sabat's voice always sounds the same. His voices for Piccolo and Vegeta in DBZ weren't very similar at all.

    As for Pein, I agree with young, but it should be reasonably deep. I mean, we're talking someone who's 25-30 years old.

    As for Deidara, his voice is already known.

    I completely agree with everything else.

    Hidan doesn't need to have spoken in the Japanese version to say who could dub her. Because as an English dubber, you're really trying to find someone who can realistically be the voice that comes out of the character's mouth. They're just matching character traits with a voice. Though, I'm sure they used the Japanese voices as a reference(Gaara), that's not the proven method.

    Just imagine if adult Goku was voiced by the same woman who played Goku as a kid? It doesn't work at all in English(and it's the main reason I say the DBZ's dub>>>>sub).

    Yeah, I know we haven't heard Konan, but I have a fairly good voice stuck in my head for her. It's strange, I can't seem to pin what I would hear for Pain. Bugs me a lot.
