The further adventures of Blooregard Q. Kazoo

So now that we've beaten Final Fantasy XII, we can finally, finally, finally look up the cast! And so we have. We actually already knew one member of the cast for each version. From listening to the trailers (we didn't want to watch them, so we just listened as they played on out computer to see if we could identify voices), we knew that Hiroaki Hirata (Gojyo, Sanji, Genma) is Balthier. And from looking up Phil Lamarr (Green Lantern, Wilt) for some unremembered reason, we knew he plays Reddas.

And, thinking that they got the voice of Wilt from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, I thought, "Hey, I wonder if they got the guy who plays Bloo to be in it?" So I went through the voices in my head and thought, "Wouldn't it be funny if he played Basch?" Little did I know that I'd be right.


Other interesting cast notes, on the Japanese side, Sailor Venus is Fran (we've met her! She said we were very beautiful. Fran said we were beautiful... (awe)), Ansem is Gabranth. Rikiya Koyama is Basch, which we really should have known, because since he played Gat in Saiyuki Reload, that type of character is what we think of when we think Rikiya Koyama. Um... Arisa (Fruits Basket) is Larsa...

And we have the best timing ever because the English dub voice of Balthier is going to be on 24 on Monday! And Heroes just went in to reruns! We are so watching 24 on Monday, even though we're completely out of order.
