Voice change for Draken
Two good news which unfortunately collide with a less good one. As we have just learned, one of the main characters of the series will lose his iconic voice. Who is it ? From Draken, Mikey’s essential right-hand man. Rest assured, the hero will be present on the screen, but the actor Tatsuhisa Suzuki will not resume his role in the sequel.
A few days ago, Tatsuhisa Suzuki – who also lends his voice to Anos Voldigoad in the anime The Misfit of Demon King Academy, revealed his intention to take a career break following a “severe physical and mental fatigue“. In question? In recent weeks, the seiyū has found itself at the center of a scandal following revelations in the press of his infidelity, several months after his marriage to the singer LiSA. However, if Tatsuhisa Suzuki was quickly apologized in a statement, “I sincerely apologize to everyone for the problems I may have caused through my irresponsible and inappropriate behavior.“, he would today be subject to health problems, the fault of popular pressure and the criticisms to which he is the object.
For the moment, the name of the new interpreter of Draken has not yet been revealed, but there is no doubt that this succession will not be easy as Tatsuhisa Suzuki had been able to mark this role with his imprint.
