Casshern Sins Cast and Trailer
By Marc | August 8th, 2008

The website for the new Casshern series, Casshern Sins, has updated with cast info and a tiny little trailer (the trailer can be seen at the official site).

Casshern himself will be played by Tohru Furuya.  Furuya has played alot of hero type characters that people might remember.  Yamcha from Dragonball/Z/GT, Amuro Ray in Gundam, Tuxedo Mask/Kamen in Sailor Moon, Pegasus Seiya in Saint Seiya among god knows how many other roles in other shows.

I consider that to be great casting, but a bit of a suprise, Daisuke Ono was announced as the voice of Casshern for the upcoming Tatsunoko vs. Capcom game.  Ono had never played Casshen before, but is an anime VA who has been getting bigger and better roles over the past few years.  The assumption me, and quite a few others made, was he was cast in the game because he would be Casshern in the new series.

Cho will be Ohji, Akiko Yajima will be Luna, Nami Miyahara will be Lyuze, Yuko Minaguchi will be Ringo…

and the big villian?

Kenji Utsumi will be playing the Braiking Boss.  Lots of past good roles for him (including playing the Braiking Boss in the mid 90′s Casshern OVA).  Shenlong in Dragonall/Z/GT, Alex Louis Armstrong in Full Metal Alchemist, and alot more.

    I just wanted to note, this article was not just written as an excuse to put up that awesome artwork of the Casshern design for the new series.

    Don’t worry about that . I like the new design anyway . There is something about the borders and color that go well . Even more so than the manga i think.
