    Omg! Hedoro's voice?! That's a very fitting pick. I approve, Toei.

    Also wow they really are going all out on Kaido's art for his anime debut.

    Kaido's character deserves to be played by a voice actor who can tone a deep voice, so there is nothing out of the ordinary here. I'd be dumb is Kaido had a voice similar to Pika.

    ...I CALLED THIS MONTHS AGO.

    Tessho Genda's voice immediately played in my head when I saw Kaido for the first time - he has a perfect, powerful voice for characters with impregnable defenses. Taurus Aldebaran in Saint Seiya is similar to Kaido, in that he's practically indestructible: he doesn't even move when he fights. He just stands there and lets others attack him with his arms crossed, and attacks by standing still and throwing his arms out. ...Seiya defeated him by cutting his helmet's horn off, simply because he couldn't even dent his actual body. XD


    This is from Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold which aired just last year - Genda sounds just as powerful as ever when he plays Aldy, and once again... he doesn't even budge when punched repeatedly. (Btw, this clip is legal. The anime is/was freely available online, courtesy of Toei.)
