Okay - going to try and be on this more often.... got a little over obsessive with Avatar the Last Airbender and Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom Conclusion in 2009. That and my PC decided to die and need brain surgery removing all my bookmarks (finding them again was very painful)

Anywho in my random surfing, I decided - you know what - haven't looked up DQ in a while.

And I found a little article you guys may be interested (added the link as well)

EUREKA!!! Following voice actors for Deltora Quest... count-down to the revival of this thread!!!

Copied and pasted this from the Anime News Network (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com.au/...ime.php?id=6907) so I am not responsible for any spelling errors below


Cole Howard as Lief
Tom Edwards as Barda

Chris Heward as Jarred
Glenn Howard as Giant
Kris Rundle as Anna
Michael Shepherd as Shadow Lord
Stewart Burdette as Fallow

Glen Howard as Grey Guards
Jae Boucher as Girl
Mary-lou Drachenburg as Mother
Michelle Warkentin as Woman
Roger Rhodes as Grey Guards
Stewart Burdette as Grey Guards


And for those interested there is also a Spanish and Italian cast listing - yes I am aware Jasmine isn't on the list... they have probably only released the first episode as a test screening or something enabling this information to leak onto the web.

I'm still hunting for new stuff, mainly checking the cartoon network web-page as they are going to be screening it according to reports. Still nothing else since my last post... looks like they are keeping it secret until the re-release of DQ in Australia this month.

But until then... random facts about the cast just to keep things going - other stuff they have done, in-case you've seen/heard them in another anime

First up - Cole Howard aka Lief

Cast in:
(English version)
D.I.C.E. (TV) as Clo-Zan
Deltora Quest (TV) as Lief
Di Gi Charat Nyo (TV) as Mjr. Coo Erhard/Young Yasushi
Full Moon O Sagashite (TV) as Machida
Hoop Days (TV) as Satoh
(The) Law of Ueki (TV) as Kosuke Ueki
My-HiME (TV) as Takumi Tokiha
My-Otome (TV) as Takumi Tokiha
Tide-Line Blue (TV) as Adjutant Teen Gould; Keel's Male Partner (ep 1)



and no - we still don't know who's voicing Jasmine again seem to be keeping this fairly top secert

Will be putting a review on as soon as I can authorize my membership. (its not up on youtube yet last time I checked)

I'll just keep putting stuff up till someone else jumps in....hopefully soon


after almost a week trying to get the darn thing to run (stupid connection issues) I was finally graced with seeing the first English episode of Deltora Quest.


And I approve!


Same content as the Japanese one (i think), Lief sounds good as does Barda - not exactly as I imagined them I'll admit, but still good. Most of the words and pronunciations for DQ that I had in my mind were acute (except for Adin for some reason.... still haven't heard Jasmine as she's in episode 2, but we'll get there)

if you like here's a link to the cartoon network video

http://www.cartoonnetwork.com.au/vi...98207263b92479e

not sure if you'll need a password or not, if you do - let me know via personal message.

that was fantastic! im not to sure about Lief's voice though. it just seems a bit off, i think it will just take some getting used to smile. and i wish they had a song to go with the opening credits. I think that would make it just that bit better. but overall it was great! smile

Deltora Quest Movie?

I think that if they made Deltora Quest movies they should be LIVE ACTION : big grin , and not Anime sick . I am a huge fan of the series and think that movies in moderation to how many books would be the most fantastic idea EVER eek!

Okay guys, the DQ Anime is now officially on Aussie TV, and in English. Man what a wait.... for those who were unable to watch this either due to not having cartoon network or not being able to view the episodes on the CN site. Here's a link to a you-tube page episodes 1 and 2 are currently up

I don't think you're being rude, to each his own.

Emily Rodda has stated she would like it to be a motion picture, she just hasn't found the right director and personally not a fan of Cameron, never have been. He seems to be more suited to sci-fi war movies - not fantasy adventures.
The reason it was made into an anime cartoon was because Japan supposedly has the biggest non-English speaking deltora fan-base and her two sons love anime.

Me personally - I am banking on the fact that it wouldn't be the first time we've gone from novel to cartoon to motion picture. (given the only examples I can think of are the marvel comics at the moment so they were technically graphic novels - but still the concept is still there)

I just want everyone to know - I cried during the episode at the climax of the Lake of Tears bit... (you know when Manus could speak again).
