If you’ve been following the English dub of the series, you’ll notice that Josh Grelle and Kelly Angel have replaced Scott Freeman and Teri Rogers as Issei and Akeno for the third season. In the press release announcing the cast, FUNimation’s director of production at FUNimation Justin Cook had the following to say about these changes:

‘We have always tried incredibly hard to retain the original voice cast for our dubbed releases. However, there are instances where ‘life just gets in the way’, and this is one of those unfortunate situations. With that being said, we are proud to bring the talents of both Josh and Kelly into the cast, and though they have big shoes or bras, as the case may be, to fill, I believe our work this season will be the best ever, despite the changes and challenges.”
