That Anime Show EP 34 The Return of Aaron Dismuke

zanegeist | August 14, 2011 | COMMENTS:11 Comments »

Texas-born Aaron Dismuke started with a few small parts (in FRUITS BASKET and KIDDY GRADE), courtesy of his cousin, Funimation ADR director Justin Cook. But it wasn’t long before the budding voice actor showed real talent, and quickly catapulted to a critical leading role in FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST as Alphonse Elric . It’s a feat all the more impressive when you do the math and realize that he was only 11 years old when he started voicing Alphonse, and that he did most of that work while speaking into a big metal bowl. Aaron resumed the role for the movie FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: CONQUEROR OF SHAMBALLA, as well as several video games based on the series. Aaron (now 18 years old) can also be heard as Ion Fortuna in TRINITY BLOOD, young Ginko in MUSHI-SHI and Yasuchika in OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB. Most recently, Aaron joined FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST- BROTHERHOOD as young Van Hohenhiem and plays Ouri Kagami in SHIKABANE HIME.

zanegeist | February 6, 2011 | COMMENTS:14 Comments »

Brina Palencia is a magical creature native to the mythical land of Oklahoma. She also has strong genetic ties to the far away land of Honduras. She migrated to Dallas, TX as a teenager and has stayed ever since. She has many magical powers. The most popular power would be that of voice acting. Her credits are numerous and can all be found on the interwebs. She also holds the power of on-camera acting. You’ve most likely seen her on the magic picture box at GameStop alongside Chris Burnett (fellow voice actor) talking about video games. Beyond that her powers include – but are not limited to – singing, cooking and baking, and playing pranks on Tatum.
