The headline says it all here. Quinton Flynn is best known for his roles as Axel in Kingdom Hearts and Raiden in Metal Gear. He’s done various anime voices as well as other various video game voices. If you’ve gone to an anime convention, you may have seen him on the guest roster. I have myself at a local convention. He entered the room singing a song that no one sang back to him. When it was my turn to get his autograph, I know he set off my girl senses. It’s that sense all women know where someone just doesn’t feel right to you and makes you uneasy. Always listen to your gut because in this case, my gut appears to be on the money.
It’s come out recently in a twitter group called BewareQFlynn that allegedly our Axel here has been inappropriate with a lot of female fans. It’s not uncommon with some voice actors, a certain Full Metal Alchemist voice actor comes to mind, to act like rock stars. The attention from crowds of fans at an anime convention can be addictive. And if you think everyone loves you, then surely everyone wants to be loved by you. This is dangerous thinking that has lead Flynn to be in this alleged situation.
The most damning evidence is a two minute very explicit voice clip of Flynn saying exactly what he wants to do to one fan. Don’t watch if you feel at all uncomfortable with sexual talk or sexual harassment. There are also a variety of texts, messages, and other communications to fans on the twitter. Everything is currently alleged, but in the video clip, that is certainly his recognizable voice. He has also allegedly kissed people in cosplay without their consent or verifying their age as is evidenced by photos on the twitter.
He may want to retain his image as a softie heart throb, but if the evidence is correct, I want his heartless and nobody self far away from further conventions. If you are going to a convention where he is in attendance, be careful and avoid him for now. An autograph isn’t worth being a potential victim.
