The original Japanese voice actor of a character from the upcoming anime adaptation of the popular Dangan Ronpa series is not a dog or a fox.
In fact, it’s not even an American animal.
The voice actor for one of the main characters, Shigenori Ito, is a Japanese dog.
Ito’s Japanese character, Chika, is also an American dog.
The American Animal Care and Control Association, which oversees the licensing of American-bred animals, called the situation “extremely troubling” in a statement.
It was the first time a dog has ever been licensed for an anime in America.
It is a sad day for all dog lovers in America, the world.
This was the second time an American-born dog has been licensed to an anime.
We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic event, said Dr. Kevin L. Smith, president and CEO of the American Animal Center.
This tragic news will be very hard for any American to bear.
We hope for a swift resolution to the situation and a swift investigation to determine the truth.
This is a developing story.
