Tribe Nine features plenty of famous streamers and voice actors.

“I went into a very small office, no cap, it was just two rooms,” explained Toast. “It was just the main room and a booth. It was a tiny, tiny office. I was surprised at how small it was because it’s an anime on Funimation, I thought it would be super professional. It was, but it was just tiny.”

The streamer played Amigops – a ninja who uses his killed kicks to decimate his foes. “I had the easy job,” explained the content creator. All I had to do was grunt.” Toast then showcased the scene where he battles one of the main characters.

“Damn, I’m pretty good at this. It really sounded like I was kicking him in the head. What’s funny is if you listen to the Japanese version, the ninja doesn’t actually make a sound. They specifically added my sound effects to the English dub.”

When discussing how he found his first anime voice acting role, Disguised Toast revealed that he was a little shocked at first. “I didn’t realize how simple it was to voice act in production, because it was pretty much just showing up, going into a room, start talking or start making noise. You [also] just leave right after.”
