Why this petition matters

Started by Zach Gibbs

For those who don't know, Crunchyroll has decided to recast many of the original English dub voice actors for the 3rd season of Mob Psycho 100, including the original voice of Shigeo Kageyama (aka "Mob"), played by Kyle McCarley.

In this viral YouTube video, Kyle McCarley explains for himself exactly why he was replaced (alongside many of his other fellow cast members) simply because he ASKED Crunchyroll to just sit down and meet with SAG-AFTRA representatives to discuss using union contracts for future projects:

Here's a list of all the characters whose English voice actors have been recast for Season 3:

  • Tome (previously voiced by Cherami Leigh)
  • Mob (previously voiced by Kyle McCarley)
  • Ichi Mezato (previously voiced by Abby Trott)
  • Jun Sagawa (previously voiced by Bill Rogers)
  • Katsuya Serizawa (previously voiced by Edward Bosco)
  • Kijibayashi, Shimura, Koga (all previously voiced by Kaiji Tang)

Many fans are devastated by this news because every single one of these original voice actors were practically perfect for their rolls and truly brought the show to life, especially Kyle McCarley's voice as Mob. Without them, the show just doesn't have the same "spark" as it did before, which is heartbreaking for fans who have been eagerly anticipating this 3rd season for years now. 

Some fans, including myself, have already canceled their Crunchyroll subscriptions out of frustration with how the company has chosen to handle this entirely avoidable situation.

What Crunchyroll can do to fix this:

  1. Meet with SAG-AFTRA representatives.
  2. Redub the entire 3rd season of the Mob Psycho 100 English Dub with ALL of the original voice actors that were previously recast.
  3. Release the new redubbed season on both Funimation and Crunchyroll.
