Going to another world can be dangerous but it’ll be nothing for the likes of the Suicide Squad. Warner Bros. Japan announced the latest cast members for the upcoming Suicide Squad ISEKAI anime series, revealing the voice actors behind popular characters Rick Flag, Katana and Amanda Waller alongside a trio of new original characters for the series.
Joining the cast of Suicide Squad ISEKAI is:
“I’m Taku Yashiro, and I voice Rick Flag. “The Suicide Squad is sent to ISEKAI!?” was my first reaction, and I was happy to join this ambitious project as I learned more about it.
Rick Flag is perhaps the only one who respects order while working closely with the uncontrollable members of the Suicide Squad. He is someone who tries to complete his mission while facing unforeseen obstacles.
I hope this action-packed show will blow your mind and make your heart race with excitement!”
“I was excited to join the world of the Suicide Squad as the voice of Katana, from the first moment of the recording session.
I kept my input to a minimum and only acted as written on the script called for, due to Katana’s mysterious nature in this series. I look forward to seeing how the director and animators will bring Katana to life in the anime.
I hope you will enjoy the familiar characters wreaking havoc in another world. I especially loved seeing the action scenes during the recording, and although they were unfinished, I can already tell that the finished product will be amazing!”
“The basic story of “The Suicide Squad” is that the Super-Villains risk their lives to gain freedom. This time, they are sent to Isekai.
The quirky villains will go on a rampage in Isekai… I am so hyped!!
I will be voicing Amanda Waller, the person who sends them to Isekai and blackmails them to act as she commands, but ends up taking all the credits herself.
She is intelligent but also ruthless and feels no guilt about wasting the Super-Villains’ lives.
Please look forward to someone like me, who is easily swayed by emotion and compassion for others voice cold-hearted Amanda.
All of the characters are cute and charming. Please look forward to the adventures of groovy and outrageous villains!”
“When I first saw the character visual, I thought Fione looked a bit timid because of her sad look on her face.
She has such a beautiful heart, and her true feelings will be revealed as the story progresses. So please keep an eye out for her.
This will be a show with some kick, so look out for the broadcast and streaming!”
“I was very happy when I got the role.
Aldora is a lonely queen with dignity. I hope I was able to convey her unapproachable mood and the cold feeling around her through my voice acting.
The series as a whole is fast-paced and the story unfolds as if you were running through it. I believe this anime can be enjoyed by everyone so please look forward to it!”
“I play the role of Cecil, a knight commander from Isekai.
At last! My two favorite things are united! “Suicide Squad ISEKAI”. What!? Are we even allowed to put the two elements together!? What a time to live in, to see some familiar DC characters wreaking havoc in another world, when the title of the series itself is already sounds exciting enough. I am also grateful to be a part of it as a voice actor!!
I voice character called Cecil. As you may have noticed already, he is an unique looking knight, just like the uniqueness of the series itself. I played him with passion to convey his cool nature but also with a pinch of wit, so please look forward to it!”
