We are proud to introduce the talented voice actor, Dallas Reid!

Dallas Reid has a voice and he’s only afraid to use it sometimes! He can be heard screaming at the top of his lungs as Asta in Black Clover and speaking at a more or less normal volume as Naoto in Clockwork Planet, Hideki/Rusian in And You Thought There is Never a Girl Online, and Yasusada in Touken Ranbu Hanamaru.

If anime isn’t your bag, (What’re you doing here?) you can also hear him as Buckey in Red Vs. Blue and a charming little barista in the audio drama podcast, Congeria.

Come say hi! He’s house broken and does not bite!

We are proud to introduce the talented voice actor, Jill Harris!

Actress, writer, and fangirl turned industry professional Jill Harris has likely been in some of your favorite anime! And maybe some of your least favorite anime, too. And probably a whole bunch of anime you feel “meh” about. She’s just been in a lot of stuff, okay?

Sometimes she’s a sass queen; other times, she’s the shy girl-next-door. Most notably, she’s voiced Noelle in Toonami’s Black Clover, Mandalay in My Hero Academia, Ihei in Tokyo Ghoul:re, Hifumi in NEW GAME!, Sakura in Assassination Classroom, Lummy in Fairy Tail, and Chiharu in Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card. Some other personal favorites are Mayaka in Hyouka, Naho in Orange, Yumemi in Planeterian, Aletta in Restaurant to Another World, Cardia in Code:Realize, and Yumehara in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (now on Netflix!) There’s more, but, like she said, it’s quite a list.

Did you know that Jill has dabbled in original animation and video games, too? A few of those roles include Charlie in Hazbin Hotel, Alani in Battleborn, and a whole slew of characters in various indie games and visual novels.

Since acting alone doesn’t pay the rent, Jill also writes visual novel scripts for developer Winter Wolves. She wrote “Never Forget Me” and she’s currently working on “Corona Borealis”. Additionally, she has an unnamed YA book in the works, but who knows when that’ll be finished.

Andrea is also a well-versed, second-generation anime fan. She grew up watching Portuguese and Spanish-language anime reruns on crappy local TV, and her mother is the biggest mech fan ever.
