Best Anime Voice Actors


The Top Ten

1 Vic Mignogna

I love how I already knew Vic was going to be #1! He's just so perfect! He practically DEFINES anime. I mean come on, Ed and Tamaki? Don't tell me that's not a reputation.

I hate to be that guy, but in light of recent events, I have to bring this up. Have all of you recently heard of Vic Mignogna's sexual misconduct allegations? But don't worry, we can always separate the art from the person. His dub performances are great! Just... not him as a person. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Tamaki, Ed, and Spirit Albarn! Vic Mignogna is awesome! He rocks, other than Huber!

Ed and Tamaki. Need I say more - Absolite

2 Todd Haberkorn

Voice Death the kid (Soul Eater), Natsu (Fairy Tail), Android 19 (DBZ though I hate him), etc. Todd voice a lot of good anime voices

With being in over 100 animes and playing characters in many common anime. Todd Haberkorn for the win.

How is he not higher? I mean Death the Kid, Hikaru, AND Natsu? Not to mention countless others!

He voices Ling Yao, my second favorite FMA character of all time!

Lelouch, ichigo, Izaya etc enough said

Worlds greatest

4 Christopher R. Sabat

He can do so many different voices perfectly. He's so many characters from DBZ, and other animes, and keeps them all unique.


He is VEGETA! Why is he not number one?

Vegeta is EVERYTHING - because Sabat's voice is EVERYTHING! ♥

5 Steven Blum

I'm not going there to die, I'm going to find out if I'm really alive. Bang.

Orochimaru... My idol he should be higher

Spike Spiegel, Orochimaru, Mugen, Zabuza Momochi this guy is awesome! - Sage_Naruto

Being the best voice actor should be primarily based on how versitile you are and how well you can do a ton of voices. Blum has voice over 850 different roles for a reason. He's absolutley fantastic in everything he does

6 Justin Cook

He does the voice of Raditz from DBZ, my favorite character in anime.

He plays English kirishima and a bunch of other characters I love!

7 Eric Vale
8 Josh Grelle

Josh's vocal ability is one of the most unpredictable voices within the realm of English dubbed anime. From a high-pitched character like Kuranosuke (Princess Jellyfish) or even Armin (Attack on Titan) to a deeper-voiced character like Ginoza (Psycho-Pass), there is no doubt that he kicks ass in whatever he does.

This voices Yukiteru Amano from Mirai nikki/ Future diary

Yuri Katsuki, Armin Arlelt, Yukiteru Amano...this guy is the bomb! - Absolite

Yukiteru, zen, yuuri katsuki, armin, its perfect!

9 Sean Schemmel

His voice for Goku is amazing! I love the ssj 3 scene. He nailed it on the scream. This guy is so awesome.

10 Bryce Papenbrook

Why do you people praise him? He can act, but he is not good. He sound exactly the same in every role, if someone where to play just the audio of a show and have me guess which character it was I wouldn't be able to tell cause he is not good - gustav_0205

This guy should definitely be higher. Kirito, Rin Okumura, Eren Jaeger, and even Red from Pokemon Origins! How could anyone not like this guy's roles? Papenbrook is the best. Papenbrook is love, Papenbrook is life.

He's a newer actor but I think he sounds great. He plays Eren (Shingeki No Kyojin), Rin (Ao no Exorcist), and Kirito (Sword Art Online). He's very good at screaming (as weird as that might sound).

The Contenders

11 Crispin Freeman

He has pretty much the best voice ever. Watch anything he's in. He's better than all of the other voice actors and everyone else alive.

"It takes a man to kill a monster..."

12 Greg Ayres

He's the bomb

13 Kyle Hebert

Love his voice as Kiba and Bon.

WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK THIS GUY IS? Voice actor of the manliest character in all of anime, Kamina of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, should be higher on this list! Plus, he's voiced Ryuji Suguro from Blue Exorcist, and he does it good as well.

14 J. Michael Tatum

Voting this person because I can see the voice actor of Tamaki as number 1 and I love Black Butler and Ouran High School Host Club! Kyoya and Sebastian!

Sebastian and Kyoya... Geez, this guy can voice anyone.. Yay Tatum!

His voice is forever in my dreams. It's just so flipping sexy!

Two words: Steins Gate
/ Tatum is fanominal

15 Monica Rial

Monica Rial is amazing and I love her voice. She's voiced so many great anime characters as well! - TwilightKitsune

From cheerful May Chang to socially awkward Tomoko Kuroki, Monica Rial's range is extremely impressive. - Absolite

Monica Rial is a very talented voice actor! She voices MANY popular anime characters such as:
Tsubaki from Soul Eater,
Kaede from Assassination Classroom,
Akatsuki from Akatsuki no Yona,
Tsugami from Guilty Crown

16 Richard Ian Cox

He's been out of the anime game for a while, but you can beat being in amines like Zoids and small roles in amines like galaxy Angels to being a major iconic character such as Ranma. Or my favorite character of all time Inuyasha!

17 Nicolas Roye

He should be in the top 10, He is INCREDIBLE as Shisui. Watch him in "The Two Uchiha" on YouTube.

18 Travis Willingham

This one needs to be higher.

Roy and Mori-senpai! Yay Travis!

26 Jerry Jewell
27 Sōichirō Hoshi
28 Miyano Mamoru

I know that other people might not agree on this, but this guy's amazing. He has this voice that is both sexy but cheerful, and it just perfect for voice acting. He can make himself sound like a 15 year old kid, so a guy who's already in this late 20's. He's awesome, and I'm glad this is where he's placed.

29 Kamiya Hiroshi

I LOVE KAMIYA SAN SO MUCH! I love Daisuke Ono too but I love Kamiya San 1% more!

30 Quinton Flynn
31 Aaron Dismuke

Although he's only really known for playing Al in FMA (only the original) he's still an amazing actor.

32 Chuck Huber

Stein! :3 Huber rocks as every character he does. Stein-kun.

33 Luci Christian
34 Terri Hawkes
35 Wendee Lee

Best known for voicing Haruhi Suzumiya and Konata Izumi.

36 Yuki Kaji
37 Brina Palencia

She voiced ciel Phantomhive on black butler she is so lit!

38 Lisa Ortiz

If she's here, where's Dan Green? Jason Griffith? Wayne Grayson?
But her voice does match some characters, even though you can tell it's her.
Still a good actor, though.

39 Caitlin Glass

She's voiced Mina Ashido who is my most favorite character

40 Daisuke Ono
41 Sarah Anne Williams

Also voices Sayaka Miki - Greninjafan127

You can't forget her contribution to the best anime ever, she voices Lizbeth and Jakuzare (I like Jakuzare a lot ) - Hoxton

42 Nolan North

Yeah sure his like everywhere, in games but that doesn't make the worst voice actor, I'm sure his a really nice guy but I'm not going to lie its pretty annoying hearing all the time.

43 Takehito Koyasu

Silky smooth voice ideal for explaining philosophical thoughts, fits any deep character and especially villains.

44 Ian Sinclair
45 Liam O'Brien
46 Sandy Fox Sandy Fox
47 Barbara Goodson
48 Myuki Sawashiro
49 James May
50 Akira Nakai
