“Dragon Ball Evolution” Japanese Dub Cast
Published by 02 February 2009, 9:11 AM EST

Our forum member kei17 dug into the Newtype website’s news section to grab a list of the Japanese voice actors & actresses playing the roles in the Japanese dub of the upcoming American-made live action movie, Dragon Ball Evolution:

  • Son Goku: Kappei Yamaguchi
  • Piccolo-Daimaō: Hōchū Ōtsuka
  • Kame-Sen’nin: Tsutomu Isobe
  • Bulma: Aya Hirano
  • Chi-Chi: Ami Koshimizu
  • Mai: Yuko Kaida
  • Son Gohan: Hiroya Ishimaru
  • Yamcha: Hisao Egawa
  • Narrator: Mami Koyama

Of the group, only Hisao Egawa and Mami Koyama have actually played any characters in the Dragon Ball anime, and even then only as some of the more “minor” characters. While it is true that Masako Nozawa probably would not match up that well with Justin Chatwin, it is a shame that the actual characters’ voices for the last two decades could not slide in. Maybe it was an “all or nothing” situation…? The talent management firm(s)…? It is a shame, really! They are all well-established and talented people, but I do not think anyone will deny that it would have been pretty cool to have the actual cast of the show doing the voices in the movie…
