... long time voice actress Megumi Hayashibara.

How good is this casting?

Perfect. (For those unfamiliar, that's Rei Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangelion... and here's why that's interesting!)

Also, Chuck Hansen is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa, the dude behind this badass motherfucker... so I can't wait to get this on DVD and hopefully have the Japanese dub on there. Pacific Rim feels perfect to watch in Japanese given the influences behind the fight scenes and the Jaegers in general, but now I'm super excited!

I can't wait to hear Raleigh shouting about Gipsy Danger's PURAZUMA KYANON. It will be a-may-ziiiiiiiiing.
