Vic Mignogna Replaced in the English Dub of The Morose Mononokean II

FUNimation Entertainment’s blog now lists Ian Sinclair in the role of “Executive” for its English dub of The Morose Mononokean II. The role was previously held by Vic Mignogna. Anime News Network is reporting that FUNimation confirmed with the site that Sinclair took over the role in last Saturday’s episode, but did not offer any further comment.

Mignogna has been accused by a number of con attendees of kissing and embracing them without consent over the course of his career with some allegations dating back to 2008. These allegations have spread on social media over the past few weeks. Fellow voice actors have publicly issued anecdotes of their personal experiences with Mignogna or support for those speaking out via social media.

Rooster Teeth has also replaced Mignogna in the cast of RWBY. Many of Mignogna’s convention appearances have been canceled. Mignogna issued an apology at the Bak-Anime convention.

FUNimation began streaming its English dub of The Morose Mononokean II on January 5, 2019, simultaneously with the English-subtitled stream on Crunchyroll.
