While the cast is solid note that there are a couple of swaps: Josh Grelle swaps for Scott Freeman for Issei Hyodo and Kelly Angel replaces Teri Rogers as Akeno Himejima.  When asked about the replacements, Josh Cook ADR Director noted that because of ‘life just gets in the way,’ they could not bring back the original cast of said characters but are happy to bring in both Grelle and Angel for the cast.

Here’s the full statement:

“’We have always tried incredibly hard to retain the original voice cast for our dubbed releases.  However, there are instances where ‘life just gets in the way’, and this is one of those unfortunate situations,” said Justin Cook, director of production at FUNimation. “With that being said, we are proud to bring the talents of both Josh and Kelly into the cast, and though they have big shoes or bras, as the case may be, to fill, I believe our work this season will be the best ever, despite the changes and challenges.”
