For now, read below for a list of League Japan’s “who’s who” and and some background information on the participating seiyuu.The video is also below!

Keiji Fujiwara (FMA+Brotherhood’s Maes Hughes) as Mastery Yi
Aoi Yuuki (Puella Madoka Magica’s Madoka Kaname, Yuuki Konno from SAO II) as Lulu
Natsuki Hanae (Tokyo Ghoul’s Kaneki Ken) as Ziggs
Koyasu Takehito (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Dio Brando) as Twisted Fate
Ikue Ootani (One Piece’s Chopper) as Teemo
Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki Sakata from Gintama) as Yasuo

The exact dates the Japanese servers will officially be running is still unknown, but the hype is real and the League players are already planning their moves from a variety of other servers into the new one. This new option will benefit the real Japanese players, because they are currently playing on servers far from their own addresses. Hence, the ping rates are much harder on them than they are on their opponents and allies alike.

  1. Great performances, as always! :)

    What makes Japanese seiyuu special is the fact that they are not only working in this industry, but are actually an active part of it, even as fans.

    I am tired of listening to proud ‘professionals’ stating they have never heard of a book, manga, author, game or a comic before being invited to do a voice-over or play in its adaptation. No wonder they always fall flat.
