Of Takumi and Crispin

For a much shorter version of this post see here.

So I've had a thing for Crispin Freeman's voice for awhile. (Oh my goodness... I already feel embarassed!) I'm not sure why exactly, but I think it all goes back to the first anime I heard him in, Witch Hunter Robin. And I was just totally smitten with Amon. See, I guess I have a thing for... anti-heroes, you could say. The dark ones who are... well, dark, but not evil. Draco Malfoy is a good example. Or Fanon Draco, really. But I'm getting way off topic. Anyways, it seems like ever since then, I've noticed his voice everywhere in English dubbed anime and games. And because I'm super sentimental, I relate his voice back to Amon. Though really, most of the characters he plays are those dark, broken, lovely characters. *Sighs*

And here, I must tell a funny story. Or at least, it's funny to me. A couple years ago already, I started my recommendations post. Someone recommended Blood+ to me. After I started watching it, I thought, "Wow, Adult Swim should pick this up. It's really their style of anime to show." Then, not too long after I found out Blood+ was being dubbed and brought to Adult Swim. YaY! Then, I thought, "Well, goodness... if Blood+ is being dubbed, Crispin MUST be cast as Haji." And when I watched the first dubbed episode, I went squeeing out to the living room to tell my Mom they had done just that. ~ Fin. ^_^

Ah, anyways... the past few days I've been enjoying my own private mini NANA marathon, and I thought about Crispin as Takumi. I really think it's a fair fit. And to me, it would be all the more helpful in coming to accept Takumi. Although, I've done pretty well now. I've come pretty far from the "Oh my God, I haaaate you, Takumi!!!1!" that I was in the beginning. *Nods* ...but I still want Hachi with Nobu!
