There’s nothing more frustrating than hearing a familiar voice in an anime title but not knowing who it is and where you may have heard them from before.

This annoying phenomenon might be experienced while watching Record of Ragnarok, as fans of the series are constantly trying to put a real face to the voice of some of their favorite characters.

So far, fans have figured out that Hunter x Hunter voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro is the voice behind Brunhilde, Dorohedoro‘s Wataru Takagi is Zeus, and Jujutsu Kaisen‘s Takahiro Sakurai voices Poseidon. They’ve also identified many more beloved voice actors in the series. However, with the latest season, all that has changed.

Most characters have very distinguished voices, but for Heracles, the actor behind this voice is so familiar that it’s on the tip of everyone’s tongue. So, who is behind this character? Find out below.
