In the anime, Mercer voiced Kagaya Ubuyashiki in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Levi Ackerman in Attack on Titan, Kiritsugu Emiya in Fate/Zero, Jotaro Kujo in JoJo`s Bizarre Adventure, Aikurō Mikisugi in Kill la Kill, Kanji Tatsumi in the second half of Persona 4: The Animation, the second voice of Yamato, and Pain in Naruto. Trafalgar Law in One Piece`s Funimation Dub, Go to Dragon Ball Super and Leorio in Hunter x Hunter. The world of Eiichiro Oda`s hit series is inherently stupid and full of characters who behave alike. As a result, it is extremely difficult for voice actors to switch between a serious, combative and comic tone. Some voice actors do the job better than others, while others fall short. I hope they use Troy Baker. He has a really cool voice that can get tough. Usopp, like Luffy, is another tricky character. The spectrum of emotions he is supposed to convey, as well as the comic relief, gives the character the opportunity to appear annoying. To remedy this, Funimation turned to Sonny Strait, the actor who provided Krillin`s voice acting. Announcing a character as «the strongest man in the world» will have high expectations for fans. In the Japanese dub of One Piece, Whitebeard – despite his age – still carries a terrifying and imposing aura, with his voice alone.

In the dubbing of Funimation, R. Bruce Elliott goes in a different direction. Besides the range of expression, Tanaka`s singing voice as Luffy gives the future pirate king the perfect dose of humor. Mayumi Tanaka is an absolute legend when it comes to anime dubbing. Crocodile is probably the first big bad that the straw hats have to face in One Piece. Sir Crocodile serves as the first example for One Piece, which happens when Luffy collides with a sea emperor, the character`s voice has been carefully cast. It is a difficult role to assume. Even on the side, Oda wanted Shirahoshi to be an annoying whiner. As the character took the plunge and plunged into the waters of animation, finding an appropriate voice became a challenge.

While the Japanese version of Shirahoshi`s voice isn`t much better, Funimation`s Bryn Apprill took the character to new, more boring depths. Mercer is the Dungeon Master of the web series Critical Role,[4] launched in 2015 on Geek & Sundry, where he guides several other voice actors through a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. [14] [15] Critical Role won the Webby Award and the People`s Voice winner in the Games (Video Series and Channels) category at the 2019 Webby Awards; [3] The show was also both a finalist and an audience winner in the Games category at the 2019 Shorty Awards. [16] Crocodile hires Ryuzaburo Otomo to lend his sneaky voice and comes to life with all the nefarious intentions of his manga counterpart. Although cold-blooded throughout, Otomo`s voice has a more sophisticated component that increases performance and reflects Crocodile`s refined nature. Ruffy`s Japanese voice actor has been the benchmark for quality for over 20 years. There is no expression she cannot encounter. Whether expressing childlike joy or Luffy`s animal rage, Mayumi Tanaka never misses a beat. Tanaka captures Ruffy`s elasticity with a performance that can stretch up to a penny between motivations. I think Franky`s voice in dub is fantastic! To be completely honest, this is the voice I originally thought of when I read the manga, and the Japanese voice is the one I don`t really like. Yes of course! If Funimation does it well, they do it really well! I like some of their voices.

Colleen Clinkenbeard, the voice of Monkey D. Luffy in the English dub of Funimation, is fantastic in her work. Luffy is a complicated character because the character has the greatest reach of the series. In most cases, Colleen is an excellent Ruffy. In the early days of One Piece`s Funimation Dub, Cole Brown took over the voice duties of dubbing Blackbeard. Sadly, Cole passed away and was replaced by Chris Rager. Although Rager is doing his best, the actor is in the unenviable position of imitating a classical voice. Mercer began his career with English Walla and additional characters in several Japanese anime and has since worked in cartoons, video games, and radio commercials. He has been invited to conventions around the world and has organized events such as Anime Expo and Anime Matsuri. His work has expanded to include a variety of roles in cartoons, video games, and radio commercials. He directed and produced the web series There Will Be Brawl,[7] based on the Super Smash Bros.

video game series, where he voiced Meta Knight and played the role of Ganondorf. He has also starred in several shows on the Geek & Sundry and Nerdist networks and produced the web series Fear News with the Last Girl for FEARnet, which was the winner of the 2010 Webby Awards in the Experimental & Weird category. [8] [9] It is difficult to hit the lighting twice. Normally, when a voice actor gets an iconic character, it`s almost impossible to earn a similar level of credit for another role. This honor is for adults only. Mercer was born Matthew Christopher Miller on June 29, 1982 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, to a family of Scottish descent. His family moved to Los Angeles when he was eight years old.[5] He attended Agoura High School in Agoura Hills, California.[5] He has a brother who writes and performs music under the stage name Dave Heatwave.[6] He spoke with a stutter when he was young; His father, who also stuttered, found him a speech therapist, who reduced the effect to such an extent that only certain words trigger it. He decided to adopt «Mercer», which his family members had used in the past, because his stage name was too similar to that of a person already represented by the SAG-AFTRA actors` union.[5] He was a member of the Groundlings.[5] [6] They have a lot of great actors, but I really don`t like robins, she looks so boring. As the English dub version of One Piece slowly catches up with the main plot, I`m thrilled to hear the voice of one of my favorite characters in English. In my opinion, Yuri Lowenthal (Sasuke Uchiha, Suzaku Kururugi and Ben Tennyson) would be a perfect fit as an English voice actor for Trafalgar Law. What do you think?!?! Mercer married voice actress and Critical Role co-star Marisha Ray on October 21, 2017.

[37] They live in Los Angeles with their dog, a corgi named Omar. [38] In video games, Mercer Leon S.

In addition to his voice acting, Mercer has developed and worked in Dungeon Master for the Dungeons & Dragons Critical Role web series since 2015.
