It was the director of Chainsaw Man who asked for little-known voice actors

On August 5, the anime adaptation of the manga was produced chainsaw man finally announced, among other things, the project’s voice cast. However, the general public reaction, even among the Japanese, was: “And who are these people?” The anime adaptation was announced in December 2020, but after that there were no more details for many months. And several months later, the official promotional video was released in August of this year. It was announced long before that Ryu Nakayama he would start this animation project as a director.

The latest promotional video for the voice-over show, incl Kikunosuke Toya like denji, Hey Fairouz like power, Tomori Kusunoki like Makima and Shogo Sakata as Aki Hayakawa. There are “relatively new faces” in the cast, people in their twenties, but from the auditions held last year, fans may have expected more well-known voice actors, and this work is very popular.

A source commented on the matter: «The main titles of popular titles tend to include popular voice actors, so the casting process for this animation was based on the same theory. However, none of the cast members fit the director’s image of “realism,” and the process had to be restarted. The main character is a high school student, so the voice actors who were already active in the industry probably weren’t the right age for the character. The director seems to have a strong feel for the animation and a clear image of it, to the point that it stands out in the cast.».

And the same source added: «The casting runs backwards from the air date, so it’s very rare that the casting goes as far as it did with Chainsaw Man. I guess they took their time choosing voice actors they were happy with, probably because they decided the Chainsaw Man content itself was “sure to sell.” Normally, there would be a good number of popular voice actors in the cast, but of the four main cast members, Ai Fairouz is the only one recognized with the lead role in Tropical-Rouge! Precure and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. However, the fact that they are used, is unknown and almost new, because they made the team, including the director, think that “the only person who can this voice to do”. The cast may feel pressured, but I hope they push themselves and bring their characters to life.».
