Additional VoicesEdit


  • The Los Angeles-based voice actors Michelle Ruff, Richard Epcar and Stephanie Sheh are featured.
    • Michelle Ruff reprises the role of Fujiko from the Pioneer/Geneon Entertainment dubs of the franchise, also replacing Meredith McCoy from the FUNimation dubs of the franchise.
    • Richard Epcar, previously the voice of Jigen in the Pioneer dubs, provides the voice of Inspector Zenigata. Christopher Sabat's decision on casting Epcar was partly based on the recently-changed Japanese voice for Zenigata sounding deeper (similar in tone to Epcar) as well as FUNimation's previous voice for Zenigata (Philip Wilburn) leaving.
