They Voiced What??? Kyle Herbert
It’s hard to belive that it’s been almost a year since my last entry into this series. (Well not really, I’m notoriously lazy), but I hope to break that streak and bring this out more often! Today in They Voiced What??? we look at the partner in crime for the last inspiration for the series. Michelle Ruff, well known as Yoko Littner, was the object of desire by many a fan boy (present company included). So why not look towards the man behind her (unfortunately short lived) boyfriend: Kamina! That’s right, it’s Mr. Kyle Herbert!
Kamina is one of the most remembered characters from Gurren Lagann, and for good reason. The man behind his voice is also incredibly well known, and rather diverse! When glancing at his IMDB and Wiki page, I was shocked at how many characters he has brought to life. I was especially shocked to realize that he voiced Frederick from Fire Emblem: Awakening, a character who is a vital member to my team! So let’s take a look at who else he has voiced!
I’ve always known that Mr. Herbert was the voice behind my favorite incarnation of Gohan, Adult Gohan / Great Saiyaman / Mystic Gohan. And when I first watched Blue Exorcist, I immediately recognized him as Bon. But I had no idea just who else he had voiced! From Kiba in Naruto to Ryu in Street Fighter, he’s done a wide ranger of brave heros, inspirational characters and mentors, and even a few goofballs. He even voiced Professor Oak in Pokemon: Origins!
This is just scratching the surface, too! Take a look at his Wikipedia or IMDB page to find a bigger list. He even has his own website, the Bid Bald Broadcast!
And as always, tune in next time for more They Voiced What???
