 2 Shout Outs! [?]
I just watched a Q&A panel he did at Anime Boston in 2012, (on Youtube. I just searched Kirk thornton and the first of a 5-part series came up) in which he shared something rather interesting I think Bobobo fans will find amusing. Apparently, most of the dialogue in Bobobo got some improv by the actors, a thing usually frowned upon in dubbing, but they were allowed just about complete reign over what their characters said. Which makes sense considering the show wouldn't have made more or less sense either way.

Oh, and his favorite Don Patch quote (sorry if I'm spelling this wrong): "CHERROS!"

@BigBossMan538 Someone should ask Kirk to do a reenactment of "Not the bees" at the next convention he goes to.

@MilanTheVillain01 I'll keep that in mind if I meet Kirk Thornton.

He sure can play with his voice a bit, can't he? When I compare the voices here, I can still kind of tell it's him, (except with Don Patch. I don't know how he managed that one) yet when I hear him in my video games, he doesn't immediately come to mind. And I think that's what I like so much about him, he isn't too easy to pinpoint, I guess you could say. Some VAs have a thing about them that makes it obvious who they are, (like with Yuri Lowenthal, as soon as he starts screaming I go, "Oh, so Yuri's his actor!" no disrespect to him, of course) but Kirk...He's good. I think I'll leave it at that. XD

Kirk Thornton: "I'm too much of a badass now to play Kiritsugu Emiya. So I'll just give'm to Matthew Mercer. I'm gonna play his daddy instead!" XD

Even though don patch annoys me to no end and I might get a million chaos spears at me...I THINK HE'S THE BEST SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG BECAUSE HE SOUNDS LIKE BOTH DAVID HUMPHREY AND JASON GRIFFITH AT THE SAME TIME!!

I was just watching Otogi Zoshi, when I heard his voice. xD I love this guy! Not Only does he play BArt (Vandread) He has played parts and narrated Bleach. Played Jin in Samurai Champloo. Some characters in Juuni Kokki/ The Twelve Kingdoms. This man is epic. I love how he can change his tone from a sort of high lighthearted youthful voice to a deep and series one!

Happy birthday again, Kirk.

Enjoyed his work in Naruto, Digimon, Lupin (Count Cagliostro in particular) and Fist of the North Star.

Not forgetting Gundam's Anavel Gato and Bobobo-Bo Bo-bobo's Don Patch.
