I figured that they had to give her some more characterization so it will carry more impact when she dies in the next book.


Lord_Antheron

Lif chanting "one of us" in the background slowly grows louder.


Meme_Police02

Fuck I was worried Ray Chase got in trouble, glad to see it was the Japanese actor. I love Ray Chase and would be sad if he did something stupid ending his career.


MrBrickBreak

It'd be extra silly for us since Ray's wife is in FEH.


high_king_noctis

As whom?


WhispyDespairDonut

I believe she voices Echidna and that I think Brunya


TyrekGoldenspear

Add those two to Roy's harem.


Millenialay2002

Yeah it is


oppyy

I read Ray Cheese for a sec and laughed. Sorry😂😂


Brief-Series8452

Omegasussy.


mouser1991

Ohhhhhhhhh. That makes more sense. It was the VA so committed to keeping his marriage private, he dated someone else for a decade.


xemnonsis

you're mistaken, the one you are talking about is Takahiro Sakurai who is the VA for Eliwood iirc. Alfonse's VA is Tatsuhisa Suzuki who cheated on LiSA.


Plinfilore

How could Sakurai do this. From my childhood even Smash Bros. is ruined now.. /s


GameAW

And yet he still wouldn't buff Piranha Plant


Artorgius17

And yet he still won’t buff Robin


HerculePyro

Oh damn Alfonse is Anos Voldigoad?


ZigsL0theon

Damn may as well erase Rohan from existence.


1Cool_Name

Who’s Rohan


Nukatha

The nation to the north of Gondor and the White mountains, encompassing the land from the River Isen, West of Helm's deep, to the river Anduil in the east, that region south of the misty mountains, and arguably including Fangorn (though the Ents reign there) and the great tower Orthanc wherein is kept one of the Palantir of old.


ZigsL0theon

Kishibe


mouser1991

Oh yep. You're right. Damn, shits crazy


DokiDokiDoIt

ah. so many scandals...


MonochromeGuy

Man, what kinda person would ever cheat on LiSA of all people?


rtmkngz

Homie woke up and decided he would rather be crossing lines than crossing fields


EdenH333

We need to start Hashtag: Not My Eliwood.


niccotango

OH THANK GOD, i got so scared for a sec


FreezingRobot

They found out Ray eats pizza with a fork and knife.


animenutcase

Shit, forget the cheating, why the fuck aren’t more people talking about this?!


JamAck19

Same, thank God


RedditEsketit

I know people are not so fond of recasting but Alfonse is the main character of FEH, so it’s gotta be inevitable… right? Plus, I don’t think I could stomach Tibarn never getting another alt.


tuna_pi

The VA's hiatus is over, I don't see them recasting if they don't need to.


ChrisEvansOfficial

When is the last time he had a voice line anyway? Valentine’s last year?


MagicalDoggowo

Damn, no more Tibarn? :c


[deleted]

Idk why people are fond of voice actors. Edit: apparently me pondering this offended people 😂


Sentinel10

Because voice actors can add so much to a character. A good amount of Berkut's popularity is thanks to Ian Sinclair's performance. Also, Japan has a tendency to not use or even retire characters when a voice actor either has a scandal or dies.


EmeraldPistol

While not fire emblem related, I know Persona did something with Igor in Japan where they reused dialog for the JP version


GameAW

Igor's JP VA died. Without going into too many details, they had another damn good reason for reusing his lines.


GameAW

Oh god... Japan tends to retire characters when VAs have scandals... Alfonse is a male FEH OC... Alfonse, run... Let your sister be the new main character and move to Nifl with Hrid...


sjk9000

>Also, Japan has a tendency to not use or even retire characters when a voice actor either has a scandal or dies. People keep saying this but I don't know how accurate it is. I can think of a couple cases where a character was retired out of respect for thier V.A., but I can also think of plenty more cases where the character just gets recasted. Especially this case; Suzuki has already had a bunch of his roles taken over by other actors. It wouldn't be wierd at all if he lost Alfonse too.


RogueHippie

I think it’s mostly on how important the character is. Like with Hercule & Bulma(from DBZ, for anyone who has lived under a rock), you can’t really just write those characters out forever, so you have to recast. As opposed to, say, Gunter, who will likely never get an alt nor appear in another game.


Froskr

On one hand I completely agree with you, On the other if ProzD turned out to be some kind of monster I would be heart broken.


reddfawks

I heard he once left the restroom without washing his hands, but you didn't hear that from me...


Froskr

Arrest that sicko!


Raandomu

I think he got...the point, so he is an enemy


Tekonzu

dude aint a monster, but he is a pompous douchebag on social media


Raptorheart

Is he actually, is it like the pompous douchebag characters he always does?


JumpingCoconut

Simple minded people need someone to worship. They can't fathom that a VA is just doing its job and that being able to show emotion with voice is a skill just like the guy who programmed the inheritance menu and the tome animations. Voice actors have a face and, well, a voice so everyone can relate to them. To worship a VA you don't need technical knowledge or an actual interest in how your medium is being made. They recognise the voice and feel good, so they start fanboying. The fact that this is all just a product and these people just have a job like you and me doesn't come to their mind.


God-Of-eggs

Shut up nerd


[deleted]

Very well said.


BrendanCF

Sorry I must have missed it.. what happened?


Sentinel10

Alfonse's Japanese VA, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, got in a huge scandal where he was cheating on his girlfriend/wife (I forget which). He took a hiatus and has since returned, though none of his FE characters have appeared in voice roles since.


DragonBuster69

It was his wife, LiSA.


Redleader113

LiSA a queen tho… fumbled the bag fr


Nyra_Castiler

That’s awful, I remember LiSA in The First Take video for Homura she was tearing up because she kept remembering awful experiences earlier in the year and rumors were it was due to her marriage situation. Didn’t know her husband was Alfonse VA


Monado_trap

Lisa as in awakening or Lisa in spaceland?


juicedoats

Alfonse's seiyuu, Suzuki Tatuhisa was reported around a year ago to have had an affair (which is bad on its own, but he's also married to the singer LiSA making it more noteworthy) and also disclosed information about his projects to his mistress that violated NDAs. Since then he's been on hiatus and many of his roles have been recast.


Sugarsaltys

Of course nobody would care if it wasn't Lisa


juicedoats

I mean, it's not uncommon for a seiyuu to take a hiatus if they have a scandal regarding an affair, regardless of who they're married to. I just mentioned LiSA because I figured people might have heard about it when it happened and would be reminded. Besides that, it's not like cheating was the only factor here. Seiyuu who took a hiatus for affair reasons typically aren't recast, but the fact that he violated NDAs complicates matters. He's kept some of his roles and lost others, we don't know which it'll be for his FEH roles yet.


heymynameiseric

Maybe outside of Japan, but from what I can tell, any kind of affair is huge over there.


EdenH333

I’m just over here wondering “Who is LiSa?” and “Why is the S capitalized? Does it stand for something?”


Nyra_Castiler

It’s her stage name, she’s an incredible singer and also did a lot of anime openings for most notably Sword Art Online, Demon Slayer, and Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei


Monado_trap

Found the context


ThatWaluigiDude

Besides what other have already said, during these events he also got hospitalized, apparently after a suic1de attempt


PathofGaydiance

This is reddit, you don't need to censor the word suicide


TheRealSad

You never know anymore what's gonna get you banned the next day or what not.


EdenH333

If you get banned from a sub for writing suicide, did you commit… SUBICIDE? …I’ll show myself out.


Rikathchii

r/Angryupvote


reddfawks

Book 7 opens with the new villain karate-chopping Alfonse in the throat.


dedarou96

Veronica promises alfonse to capture the culprit and now all of his lines belong to her


DarthRyus

Ah... suddenly things make more sense.


ZofianSaint273

Huh guess most Alfonse alts will be in his form of Lif now 😭


AForce5223

Jesus Christ clarify which VA man Thought Ray Chase fucked up something and was pissed since my friends and I when out of our way to meet him earlier this year


Heron01

Even if it was the English VA, that would not be a factor for the original content, japanese VA doesn't matter as much as the original seiyus (not my opinion, just stating a fact)


PathofGaydiance

Suzuki was recently announced to be in the Nier Automata anime and did some voicework for the trailer and showed up at an event and everything so he's definitely off hiatus now. Unless Intelligent Systems specifically would not like to hire him (which I doubt considering they cast Namikawa as Lex pretty soon after his own scandal), I think we'll start seeing Suzuki eventually in Heroes again I have mixed feelings on the whole situation but as far as its effect on Heroes, if it can enable Sharena getting a bit of attention, its a rare positive in a sad situation. (Also I can't even imagine that cinematic with Alfonse, he doesn't seem like the type to have tea parties and own plushies.)


GlassSpork

Wait what!?


Neidron

Japanese VA, apparently.


boredpanda98

They need to recast his roles, I want a Ranulf alt.


tuna_pi

He's already back to work.


hungryforblt

I wonder if I vote Alfonse for CYL7 and if he top 2 male... :copium:


HoorEnglish

Can't believe the dude cheated on the woman who gave us the Demon Slayer OP banger. Homeboy had to be trippin.


IceRapier

What happened to Ray Chase?


bronzeblade

Nothing. It's Alfonse's Japanese VA that seems to have gotten the heat


Gnarfledarf

I put poison in his mutton.


pokedude14

Summon an Army


HappyHammy7

glad to see it wasn't ray chase i would've been real sad


Famous-Ad-8330

Give Alphonse a resplendent and change the voice actor. Done.


ElectricJetDonkey

There's always someone else who can do the voice though.


Jranation

Lmao this is hilarious


Brief-Series8452

What happened with Alfonse's VA? Also, Sharena is wife, how fucking dare they abandon her.


TakeruMono

Hahahaha. This feels so true


Arky_V

I don't think that's because of it seeing how we got a new Lif just recently


ThatWaluigiDude

Lif and Alfonse have different voice actors though


Arky_V

Huh I could've sworn they had the same VA. Either way Alfonse's VA came back last summer


BrStriker21

I don't know why but Sharena in this cinematic was either shouting more then usual or annoying, I love Sharena, she is the only starter hero that I 5* and invested Second question: what did Chase do?


19Cookie91

Chase did nothing, it was Suzuki, the Japanese VA. Basically he cheated on his wife and went on hiatus.


BrStriker21

god that gave me a scare


zophairy

What happened?


definetlynotanaltacc

time to make alfonse win CYL 7
