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.

- Sesshomaru's Mother
- Bone Demon
- Yakurodokusen/Potion Master
