In case you missed their reveal, the English voice cast of Chainsaw Man includes Ryan Colt Levy as Denji, Reagan Murdock as Aki, Sarah Wiedenheft as Power, and Suzie Yeung as Makima.

Of the four, Ryan is the biggest fan of the series. In the interview, he shared that he is a big fan of the Chainsaw Man manga even before the auditions started. Though he said that he re-read the manga four times before he auditioned.

Meanwhile, Reagan already knew what Chainsaw Man was, though he only read the manga around the time of his audition.

He then became a fan of the series, and he especially wanted to play the role of Aki Hayakawa.

As for their auditions, the four main cast members shared which scene was used to try out for their roles.

Ryan was the first to share that he auditioned with the scene involving Denji sitting on a log with Pochita and saying his ambitions.

According to Ryan, this scene shows Denji’s layered and deep characterization.

For Reagan, he auditioned with Aki’s scene from Episode 2, just before getting hit in the balls by Denji.

He said that the challenge with this scene was conveying Aki’s thoughts and feelings while keeping his subdued tone, as seen in this clip:

Meanwhile, Suzie’s audition had her speaking Makima’s lines from the trailer, which you can check out here:

She mentioned that she thought Makima has a measured speaking voice, and so that’s the direction she went with.

Finally, Sarah auditioned with Power’s lines from Episode 2 when talking about Meowy.

Sarah said that she referred to the scene in the manga and the first trailer to form a basis for her Power voice.
