ACTOR APPRECIATION

GO BEYOND!

It’s Jessie Grelle, the voice actor extraordinaire. Even if you've never heard their name before you've probably heard their voice in one of the countless projects they've worked on, including anime and movies of all genres. If you want to get caught up, we better get started.

MY HERO ACADEMIA

Fumikage Tokoyami is one of the strongest members of Class 1-A. He wields the quirk “Dark Shadow,” which allows him to manifest a sentient shadow-bird construct that emerges from his body and can fight on his behalf. Tokoyami is reserved, serious, and focused on becoming stronger. 

Jessie has voiced Tokoyami in the My Hero Academia series, as well as in three My Hero Academia movies (Two Heroes, Heroes Rising, and World Heroes’ Mission). 
 

ATTACK ON TITAN

Armin Arlelt, on the other hand, is timid, emotional, and analytical. His character grows throughout the series as he becomes braver and more confident. His journey takes him from the joining the Survey Corp to leading a coup d’état and to even becoming, the appropriately named, Colossal Titan.

YURI ON ICE

Yuri on Ice is one of the most popular and award-winning sports anime series of all time. Jessie’s role as the main character, Yuri Katsuki, plays a huge part in its enduring reputation. This anime is about queer love, the beauty of ice skating, and how it feels to experience anxiety.
