It’s our last dub cast announcement for Free! -Eternal Summer-! Today we’re bringing you the featured new rival character Sosuke, the tall and intimidating butterfly specialist and Rin’s best friend from Samezuka High School!

The amazing dub cast for Free! Eternal Summer! Johnny Yong Bosch was the best choice for Makoto honestly! Just think of Makoto’s sweet voice and Yukiyo from Blue Exorcist! Perfect! I honestly think Vic Mignogna ruins Rin’s voice T.T just my opinion though.
So last week at Animate Miami I had a brief talk with Ian Sinclair, the voice actor for Romano, and he said: “Everybody loves Romano, except Romano.” and that just crushed me because I get the feeling that the whole fandom agrees.
So Monica Rial (AKA Mei-Rin) announced that the Black Butler cast is having a reunion coming up at Shutocon in march! It’s the first time everyone’s been together and it includes…*drum roll*…Daniel Frederick (GRELL)!
If anyone can tape this panel so more people can see this, that would be super sweet of you. And you’d get a million thanks from other fans :) Spread this around!
