Guest Announcement: Patrick Seitz

Please join us in giving a warm Anime Central welcome to Patrick Seitz as a 2016 Guest of Honor!

patrickseitzKnown primarily for his work as the guy who yells out “Super Electromagnetic Shrapnel Cannon!” in Code Geass, Patrick Seitz’s body of other, lesser work stretches back to the year 2000. When he’s not busy playing Love Live: School Idol Festival, Patrick Seitz gets paid to voice guys who A) yell a lot, B) wear an eye-patch, C) have an accent, or D) sport a cool haircut.

His anime credits include Gamagoori in Kill la Kill; Franky in One Piece; Laxus in Fairy Tail; Keith in Attack on Titan; Griamore in Seven Deadly Sins; Motochika in Sengoku Basara; Senji in Deadman Wonderland; Isshin and Kenpachi in Bleach; DIO in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure; Germany in Hetalia; Agni in Black Butler; Simon in Durarara; Kunzite in Sailor Moon; Sky High in Tiger & Bunny; Luke Valentine in Hellsing and Hellsing: Ultimate; JP in Redline, Grimmer in Monster; the Penguin Emperor in Daimadaler; Agil in Sword Art Online; and Nekozawa in Ouran High School Host Club.

On the video game side of the equation, Patrick’s credits include Ragna in the BlazBlue series; Garrosh Hellscream and Arthas Menethil in World of Warcraft; Scorpion in the last few Mortal Kombat games; Artanis in StarCraft II; Kog’Maw, Lucian, and Renekton in League of Legends; Kana Rua in Pillars of Eternity, Basilio in Fire Emblem: Awakening; Samson in Skullgirls; Chopin in Eternal Sonata; Doug in Xenoblade Chronicles X; Hades and Chaac in SMITE; Hugo in Ultra Street Fighter IV; Heldalf in Tales of Zestiria; and create-a-character voices in Dragon Ball Xenoverse and The Sims 4.

He was also the dream-sequence pizza-delivery bear in Inside Out, as well as other additional voices.

Seitz also does script-adaptation and ADR directing—most recently, for the English dub of Your Lie in April. If you’ve seen shows like Steins;Gate, Romeo X Juliet, Space Dandy, Princess Jellyfish, or Deadman Wonderland, he done writ some of them words—or, in the case of Summer Wars and Wolf Children, *all* of them words! His directing credits include State of Decay, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Citizens of Earth, Rune Factory 4, Conception 2, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker (breathe!), Monster, Girls Bravo, and BlazBlue: Alter Memory.
