Funimtion VA and script writer Jamie Marchi responds criticism on edited English Dubs

https://kawaiipaperpandas.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/rias-grem.jpg?w=1000

Even though the following video is old from 2018, apparently this is becoming new news. The full news can be read at the news site Bounding Into Comics, but apparently, it looks like it is about Jamie Marchi and her response to the criticism towards anime she has been involved, specifically, in the dubbed anime she has worked on. In case you didn’t know, Jamie Marchi is not only a voice actor who voiced characters like Rias Gremory (High School DxD), Mount Lady (Mount Lady), and Lucao (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid), but she has worked on the script of anime when doing English Dub translations such as Prison School, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and My Girlfriend is a Gal. The reason why I am bring up these details is because of a video has been resurfaced online in regarding to Marchi and her position when translating English Dub anime.

A Twitter user uploaded a video featuring Jamie Marchi along with other female voice actors during 2018 Summer SacAnime convention.

During the video a fan asked a question to her about why is Funimation getting criticism when doing the scripts for English Dub. In her words, she states that the reason why Funimation is getting backlash is because it is her gender and she is a woman working in the anime industry.

“Honestly, that’s the truth,” said Marchi. “I am a funny woman. We are all talented, funny, powerful women. We are out here. It is going to happen. Deal with it.”

She also adds on to saying the reason why the fans are angry is because they are sexually frustrated.

“I’m sorry you’re not getting laid, it’s not about you, move on”, said Marchi.

On Twitter recently, Marchi commented on the video saying that the reason why she said those comments in 2018 is because she wants to stand up against these critical anime fans. She mentions she is constantly harassed and even received death threats because of her works. With the constant harassments, she mentions she wants her voiced to be heard loud enough until the online “trolls” are kept silent. That is why you see her more vocal on Twitter whenever you see her tweets.

What’s your opinion on all this? You can read the full story at Bounding Into Comics. The links are down below.

He mentions in his tweet to not harass any collaborators for they were not part of this controversy. According to Bounding into Comics, Thurman was involved in many anime such as My Hero Academia, Tokyo Ghoul:re and Attack on Titan. In One Piece, he voiced the gladiator bull Ulcy during the Dressrosa arc.

Chris Thurman is the second English Voice actor removed from Funimation due to being caught in sexual crimes. The first one was Scott Freeman who was caught in sexual misconduct in 2014. Freeman was the former voice of Issei from High School DxD.
