Has there ever been an anime where the voice actor of a main character has died mid-season?

How would they work around that?
>>
They would work around it by casting someone else.
>>
probly re cast an re record everything up to that point
>>
All Japanese VA's sound the same. They have it covered already I'm sure.
>>
Netero's VA died.
They just used someone else.
>>
When Ramba Ral's voice actor fell ill during Build Fighters they just replaced him with a different guy who sounded nothing like him
>>
Fucking Tripfags back to being useless, don't bother tagging if you just spout dumb shit.
>>
>>133074733
It happened in Bleach.
>>
Not really a main but in Bleach Soi Fon's VA died so they replaced her with Rukia's.

I wish you all died instead of her.

>>133076036
You replying to them validate them too.

How is this show anons?

Worth watching?
>>
Tohru's VA in Fruits Basket
>>
>>133074733
The voice actor for Yang Wenli (of LOGH) died before the OVAs were done. They just used a different voice actor.
>>
Happened to the MC of Honey & Clover for the last episode.
>>
If it's a short series, chances are all the lines have been recorded already.

If it's a long-running series, they'll usually avoid using the character until they've found an appropriate substitute.
Examples: Giovanni in Pokemon, Smoker in One Piece

Yui,,,,Horie...?
>>
>>133076089
Worth a watch just for goofy lewd humor.
Don't watch it expecting some kind of deep social commentary on censorship or anything. I didn't, but some people did, and it baffles me.
>>
Happened, sort of, with build fighters tri, Ral's VA for sick so they brought in a new guy for a while

>>133074733
Don't know. I've heard of the creators dying though.
It seems to be unsettlingly common for people to drop in the anime community.
>>
>>133074733
It happened to Hunter x Hunter. They had to use another seiyuu.
>>
>>133076178
Ahhh so turn my mind off kind of show. I can dig that.

It's okay. Episode 4 will make or break it for you.
>>
>>133076005
voice of which character?
>>
>>133076005
And twice in One Piece.
>>
>>133076089
It's a comedy about soiled underwear.

Seriously. It starts off as a sex farce, but then every joke and plot point revolves around dirty undies.
>>
>>133076370
How do anons not grow tired of this?
>>
He didn't die, but a VA from One Piece was arrested for posting pictures of his dick online, so they just got someone else for the part.
>>
>>133076301
Thank God Futa's VA is alive. She was phenomenal in Steins;Gate
>>
>>133076402
Because we are all teenage boys at heart (and some probably are physically too)
>>
Shit that sucks, I didn't know she was Anna's voice actress. That character was the best part of the show :(

Her songs were great.

Character is now deafmute.

How is that a crime? Goddamn it, Japan.
>>
>>133076749
Seiyuu of a kids show can't be doing vulgar shit like that
>>
>>133076932
I get that he'd lose his job over it but how is that a crime to get arrested for, is what I believe is being asked here

Happened to pic related in the dub.
Wasn't an MC but you did notice the change.

Fucking sicko probably didn't even cover it with little black bars

chad

>>133076963
Because of Japanese obscenity laws. He was showing off a full body tattoo that he spent a decade completing and the picture just so happened to include his penis, so he was arrested for exhibition of indecent pictures.
>>
>>133076749
Maybe it was uncensored?
>>
>>133076644
Happened to this guy.
>>
>>133076402
Because Anna a hot.
>>
>>133074733
Tomoko Kawakami's death had several parts recast as series were in production or pre-production at the time if I can recall.
>>
>>133074733
VA for coach in Hajime no Ippo died between new challenger and rising. they just re-cast him. is there anything else to this question?

Netero's seiyuu died too during HxH 2011
>>
>>133076183
Shimoneta is still airing? Damn.
Whoever they put in Anna's place will just ruin it.
>>
>>133079519
It finished.

But it does kill any chance of a second one.

Probably for the better knowing how hit-or-miss the show is.

>Volume 3 BDs in 4 days

Will Fuwa have a bush or bare vagina bones? We'll never know.
>>
>>133077169
That's nearly as retarded as censoring porn videos.
>>
>>133074733

Ramba Ral's VA in Gundam Build Fighters Try got super sick, and they replaced him episode 3.
>>
>>133074733
The VA for Irou died in production of book 3 of the last airbender, and they just wrote out Irou's spoken lines until they found someone else.
>>
Otaku won't make a fuzz about a VA being changed if the VA in question is either: dead, seriously ill or retired. If that happens, they'll roll with a new VA being used.
Problem happens when the original VA of a character is perfectly capable for doing the job and willing to do it, but isn't cast.
>>
I remember the guy who voiced Emperor in Aldnoah Zero died while it was still airing. But then his character died in the show as well, so they didn't need any more lines.

There are only four options in this case:
1. Recast the character
2. Make the character not speak (mute, dead, moved away, etc)
3. End the series

>>133076306
Soifon. She was voiced by Kawakami Tomoko and was replaced by Kawashima Houko.
>>
It depends. Sometimes they don't bother continuing the series because its seen as disrespect to recast a character's VA because the original died.
>>
>>133076141
I thought he got to finish all of the main series? Don't tell me they killed off Yang because his VA was dying anyway.
