Inuyasha: The Final Act Voices

Inuyasha: The Final Act was recorded in English way back in May 2010 but did not get released until 2012 & 2013. When it did finally get released Viz only listed the main cast's voice actors and did not a large majority of the cast. We have the Japanese voices for everyone, but we need help figuring out the English voices of the following characters...

If you know any of them, even a good guess (with supporting evidence like a similar part that sounds identical that an actor has played before for Ocean Group) please drop us a line.

  • Toshu
  • Kinka
