  1. The more I think about it, I'll be more bummed if Sega decides to make sweeping changes to the Japanese voice cast.

    Like, fine, whatever, movie Sonic is an AU and can have his own voice and interpretation different from the games. Would really suck if they decide to dump Jun'ichi for whoever they got for the movie though.

      I don't think that will happen any time soon to be honest. The Japanese seem to firmly believe that if you're the character you'll always be that character. I've rarely seen when a character gets a seiyuu change and most circumstance its usually because the previous actor died.

      Its one of the many reasons why I'm more invested in the Japanese side of things.

      Yeah, I'm not sure how common it is to be honest. Off the top of  my head, the only thing I can immediately think of is Fullmetal Alchemist 2009 replacing nearly everyone for... no reason I'm aware of. Just hard not to feel a little antsy Sega might try to cash in on the movie's success to bring things closer to it.

      I don't think the movie enjoyed nearly the same success in Japan as it did in the West; and it'd be unlikely that SEGA decided now was the time to be consistent with Western VA overhauls, if 20 years of voice cast overhauls didn't already.

      @Zaysho Who got changed in Brotherhood? Ed is still Romi Park, and Al was still Rie Kugimiya iirc. Usually when there's a VA change in Japanese works, its generally due to the death of a previous actor.

      Hunter x Hunter changed the cast, I think. Digimon, too.

      I doubt that will happen anytime soon. Japanese VAs tend to be treated better than Western VAs in that regard; it's very, very uncommon for them to get replaced unless it's absolutely necessary, for example if the previous VA died.

      @Kuzu everyone was changed except the brothers and Hughes as far as I know

      That's wild. That almost never happens.
