If Sonic's voice actors sounded like this man, then they would be perfect like Jun'ichi.

@TrueMyriad IMO out of Sonic's three canon voices, Roger Craig Smith is the one who sounds closest to Junichi Kanemaru.

I've always found the San Diego cast to be the ones must notably matching the Japanese VA's tones and inflections.

@rosebr10 That's at least partly down to the direction, I'd say. Ryan Drummond stated in an interview with Sonic Cult that due to the way the recording process was done, they more or less had to match the Japanese dialogue as closely as possible. As far as the voice itself goes, Roger is the closest followed by Ryan, but you do have a point.

His Sonic actually sounds like Sonic. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Roger Craig Smith.

So Sonic, Swiper, and Henry are the same person in Japanese.

Alright.
