Why The English Dub Voice Of Luck From Black Clover Sounds So Familiar

"Black Clover" gives the shōnen anime genre an even more magical twist than usual. In this anime based on Yuki Tabata's manga, the characters have magical powers, and floating spellbooks commonly accompany combatants in their battles. In other words, the characters tend to be both warriors and wizards.  

The series is just as full of colorful characters as you'd expect, but even then, Luck Voltia manages to stand out. The fight-happy young man is a Black Bull who's occasionally possessed by the elf Lufulu. His small, cheerful appearance belies a truly dangerous and bloodthirsty fighter, who's likely to maintain his usual friendly smile even when he's actively engaged in a life-or-death battle.

 The subtitles crowd might recognize Ayumu Murase as the character's voice actor. However, if you prefer dubs, you might also very well recognize his English voice actor from somewhere ... but where? Let's take a look at why the English dub voice of Luck Voltia from "Black Clover" may sound familiar. 

Justin Briner voices Deku in My Hero Academia, as well as many other anime characters

The reason the English dub voice of Luck sounds so familiar is pretty simple: If you're an anime fan, you've likely heard him a good few times before. Justin Briner, you see, has plenty of voice acting projects in his résumé. In 2021 alone, you had the chance of hearing him in voice roles like Sojiro Seta in "Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter Part I — The Final," Ginro in "Dr. Stone," and Daida in "Ranking of Kings," — as well as his long-running voice roles, the most notable of which is quite possibly his turn as protagonist Izuku "Deku" Midoriya in "My Hero Academia."

Digging deeper, it's even clearer why Briner's voice might ring familiar to fans' ears. Though his first voice role was "B'T X" character Marcello in 1996, he's been truly active in the industry since the 2010s, popping up in some of the best-known anime franchises. Among many other anime works, he's provided various voices for multiple "One Piece," "Attack on Titan," and "Dragon Ball Z" projects. He's also the voice of main character Cloud in the "Final Fantasy VII: Machinabridged" series and movie.
