"See me ruined by my own creations"

Personal quote: "For good or bad, everything is a matter of perspective"

If someone asks me how I can draw with ballpoint pen, I ask you,
how the hell can people draw with pencils?

I like trivia. There's way over 50 voice actors in both Japanese and English dubs of Rurouni Kenshin / Samurai X

There are 4, and yes I said FOUR voice actors in the Portuguese dub. For the whole deal. A short list of characters voiced by the same actor is bellow.

For 10 episodes, there were actually only 3, but then they brought a huge talent to help out and made the 4 (there were two changes over the course of episodes but then returned to what was before) to voice over 50 relevant characters.

Funny detail: The voice actor for Kenshin and the voice actress for Kaoru are the same for Li Shang and Fa Mulan of Mulan :) so they voice two couples in different stories.

So yes, it goes something like this

Carlos Alberto Macedo - Himura Kenshin
Shinomori Aoshi (one of the few character to actually change voice actor in some episodes, so the 'official' voice actor is no him) Usui and Hoji of the Juppongatana, Jin-E/Kurogasa, the guy with the pipe of Soujirou's family, the glasses-policeman that appears a lot, one of the Oniwabanshu, Kaoru's father, literally dozens of minor characters

Filipe Duarte - Sagara Sanosuke
Shishio Makoto, Takeda Kanryu, Han'nya, doctor Gensai, Okubo Toshimichi, the very first 'false' Battosai, one of the Oniwabanshu, one of the members of Soujirou's family (actually 2 I think), literally dozens of minor characters

Carla de Sá - Kamiya Kaoru, Myojin Yahiko
Megumi, Misao, Yumi, Kamatari, Tsubame, that young pirate captain, the two girls of the Oniwabanshu, the two little girls of the dojo, every single female or child character you can remember including the baby of the Arai family which is absolutely adorable in the dub

Peter Michael - Saito Hajime, Shinomori Aoshi, Seta Soujirou
Seijuro Hiko, Okina, Chou and Anji from the Juppongatana, Yutaro, Raijuta, Tsukioka, pretty much he voices at least 5 different characters PER EPISODE, he's definately the male actor to voice more characters. Obviosly no one can beat Carla de Sá though.
And yes believe me, he can voice completely different voices like Soujirou (17) AND Okina (+70) or have whole conversations with 'himself' in the case of Saito and Chou for instance.

It's common we have less than 10 actors, but Samurai X is truly impressive in the short number of actors. Dragon Ball has 7, Yu Gi Oh has 5/6, Shaman King has 8(?), but Samurai X has FOUR.
And they are all impressive and have the hugest voice dubbing list you can think of.

0:20 starting with awesome Sanosuke typical moment
0:51 baby Arai which is adorable
1:50 for Chou (same voice actor as Okina)
2:41 / 4:09 for Okina (same voice as Soujirou remember)
3:15 for Shishio Soujirou and Hoji
5:41 adorably funny Hiko moment with 'no man hugs' (same voice as Soujirou and Okina) there's also Saito here too but only one line
video not mine but I'm glad someone compiled it

Do you have trivia for your own countries dub?
