French voice actor Anna Lauzeray-Gishiwho plays the character Kikyo Kushida in the French dub of the anime adaptation of it Classroom of the elitereported that she was fired by Crunchyroll, because she participated in a fandub of the franchise chainsaw man (the promotional video), and that the company allowed him to state the reason for his dismissal.
Write the statement:
- After a call from Crunchyroll, informing me that I have the right to report this, I am announcing that I will no longer be playing the role of Kikyou Kushida in “Classroom of the Elite”. The reason they gave me was a decision made after my “Chainsaw Man” fandub. I would like a friendly solution, like deleting the fandub, but they didn’t offer it to me, they just fired me for it, and it would also be a transatlantic decision.
- I have to admit I was surprised, I didn’t expect to be fired for amateur dubbing. I started with the fandub, and now they start me for it… For the new generation, the fandub is one of the best formats to improve and show what you’re worth. Today, professional dubbing actors become more and more fans based on effort, perseverance and perseverance.
- I hope this is an isolated case. I wish the best of luck to the actor who will be playing kikyou after me. And of course, I ask you not to insult or harass her in any way, this decision is not up to her. Whoever you are, I wish you the best of luck.

Summary for Chain Saw Man
The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of the people, making them targets for elimination. Denji is a depressed young man who sold some of his organs and works as a lumberjack and devil hunter to pay his late father’s debts. Denji (who is also a demon) has a dog named Pochita, who has chainsaws and uses them to do his work.
This is explained by the fact that humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is tasked by Yakuza to infiltrate a building and kill another demon. However, the plan to kill him turned out to be a trap as part of the Yakuza’s deal with the devil, which gained them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bails him out.
