After revealing the Devilman side, the official website for the upcoming Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman movie was updated with the cast listing for the Cyborg 009 side. Leading the charge for the more technologically advanced side of the conflict is none other than Jun Fukuyama (Code Geass’s Lelouch Lamperouge and Assassination Classroom’s Koro-sensei).
Jun Fukuyama will be the latest seiyuu to take on the role of the legendary Cyborg 009 himself, Joe Shimamura, who has been previously voiced by the likes of Mamoru Miyano, Katsuji Mori, Takahiro Sakurai, and Kazuhiko Inoue. Joining him will be his fellow cyborgs, which include Cyborg 003, Françoise Arnoul, will be voiced by M.A.O. (Durarara!!’s Vorona and Arpeggio of Blue Steel’s Hiei).
Voicing Cyborg 001, Ivan Whisky, will be Haruka Shiraishi (Ronja the Robber’s Daughter’s Ronja) while the one voicing Cyborg 002, Jet Link, will be Tomoaki Maeno (Naruto’s Pain and Yowamushi Pedal’s Juichi Fukutomi).
Albert Heinrich, also known as Cyborg 004, will be voiced by Hiroki Touchi (Psycho-Pass 2’s Teppei Sugou and Nadame Cantabile’s Yukihisa Matsuda) while Cyborg 005, Geronimo Jr., will be voiced by Tsuyoshi Koyama (Blazblue’s Bang Shishigami and Saki’s Daisuke Yamaguchi).
Yuu Mizushima, who was originally part of the Devilman side as he previously voiced Ryou Asuka, will now be fighting in the Cyborg 009 side as he will be voicing Cyborg 006, Chang Changku. Hozumi Gouda (Hetalia’s Ancient Rome and Hunter X Hunter’s Leorio Paladiknight) will be voicing Cyborg 007, Great Britain, and finally, Cyborg 008, Pyunma, will be voiced by actor Ayumu Okamura.
With the tagline “Who will survive…?”, the Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman is slated to premiere this October 2015 for a limited time of two weeks. The story will follow the meeting between Cyborg 009 main character, Joe Shimamura and Devilman main character, Akira Fudou. As the title and the tagline suggests, it won’t be a peaceful one. Devilman creator, Go Nagai himself, has acknowledged that both series are “like oil and water” as they simply do not mix at all. However, this is really happening and there is much excitement for this movie as many are excited to see the two classics collide.
