I hope that Michael Sinterniklaas will use Ocean or Blue Water Voice Actors in One of His NYAV Projects some day.

Sinterniklaas has this wonderful habit of Highlighting Underrated Talents in the Profession.

@EPA Deane Vancouver and Calgary actors are part of an entirely different union from L.A. and New York actors. If he wants to work with Vancouver/Calgary players, he'd have to play director in Canada and work with those pools exclusively.

Happy Birthday Michael Sinterniklaas!

I'd say my favourite role of his is Tray Racer. With Leonardo as a close second. Really made both characters sound very likeable IMO!

It was also nice hearing him as Takumi and Lucius in Fire Emblem Heroes as well. He did a nice job capturing what made Roger Rose's voice for Takumi so awesome really. His Niles is also decent, but honestly I think his voice was a tad too light for that kind of character honestly.

Another favourite of mine is his Gwin from Xenoblade Chronicles X. His delivery of lines like "And the award for best ass-kiss goes to..." were really hilarious.

I also enjoy his performances as Nightmare, Mahad, and Dean Venture!

Happy Birthday Michael Sinterniklaas!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Leonardo (TMNT)
2.) Ivan Karelin/Origami Cyclone (Tiger & Bunny)
3.) Angelo Sauper (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn)
4.) Dean Venture (The Venture Bros.)
5.) Kenji Koiso (Summer Wars)
6.) Masakazu Masaki (A Time Of Eve)
7.) Age (Patema Inverted)
8.) Detective Jan Suk (Monster)
9.) Seviper (Pokemon)
10.) Satoshi Osugi (Eden of the East)

I have to also say his impressions of Roger Rose's Fire Emblem characters is a pretty good example of his work.

also congrats on the huge success he's had with the entirety of Your Name, with voice directing the dub and voicing it's male lead Taki Tachibana. I haven't seen the movie yet but it's on my to-do list.

I think the voice he did for Leonardo would be absolutely perfect for Marth, but Yuri Lowenthal is a close second.
said at 4:08 PM on Fri Feb 3 2017
Does anyone know what he sounds like as Takumi and Niles in Fire Emblem Heroes? I'd love to hear the two, considering I really like both characters. ...Does he sound anything like Roger Rose or did he put his own twist on them?
said at 5:47 PM on Fri Feb 3 2017

He sounds a LOT like Roger, but he also puts his own twists as well.
said at 9:32 PM on Thu Feb 9 2017
@Beldarius I have Takumi and to be honest i thought he was his original VA, Niles on the other hand doesnt have his deep voice like in Fates but ive gotten used to it
said at 1:21 AM on Fri Feb 10 2017
@mexipika Pretty much this yeah. His Takumi is great, but his Niles is a bit too light-sounding IMO.
said at 1:08 PM on Sun Jan 7 2018
@HylianBelmont I noticed Sinterniklaas does a better job as Niles in FE Warriors. The voice is a little deeper and I can hear more "Rosish" nuances when he's teasing people.

Happy Birthday, Michael Sinterniklaas! It's still great to see that he managed to open up that NYAV Post studio when he did. He's also an exceptional voice actor to boot and one I couldn't quite escape in that regard. My favorite Sinterniklaas roles right now include Dean Venture, Nnoitra Jiruga, Leonardo, Sarutobi Sasuke, Weenus, and Mikey.

This guy is the sweetest, most adorable person IRL, a lot like his gal pal Stephanie Sheh! I think it's awesome that they have a studio. It is EXTREMELAY underrated.

He's also got a great young hero voice to match.

Happy Birthday Michael Sinterniklaas!

He is without a doubt one of the greatest voice directors of all time. He did such phenomenal work with the English dubs such as Berserk, Slayers, Time of Eve and A Letter to Momo as well as The Venture Bros.

He is also a fantastic VA in his own right. I love his performances as Leonardo, Dean Venture, Kenji Koiso, Age, Masakazu Masaki, Ivan Karelin/Origami Cyclone, Xellos, Detective Jan Suk, Seviper, Isaza, Gasud and Lawyer.

I also thinks its awesome he found the NYAV Post, seriously they have produced some of the best English dubs in anime history, it's a crime that his studio and its work is criminally underrated. Someday I will end up checking out all of his directorial work. I'm glad he's now doing the Gundam franchise, he and his studio are the next best thing to Ocean doing the series. I'll be checking out his Gundam dubs the first chance i get.
said at 4:01 AM on Sat Aug 13 2016
His direction for the dubs of Gundam Unicorn and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin are not only some of the finest English dubs recorded at the NYAV Post or even in the Gundam franchise but also some of the all-time best dubs period. Michael really seems to get Gundam, the tragedy of war down and cast both of these Universal Century series perfectly.

His performance as Angelo Sauper in Unicorn, is definitely one of biggest playing against type roles in his career thus far, playing the loyal dogmatic follower of the show's main antagonist Full Frontal.

Now to the real question that's on many minds....will Michael get to direct the new Berserk anime that's out this season. I hope so. It just wouldn't be right hearing a new voice cast doing the voices for Guts, Casca and Griffith and without Michael directing either. Michael brought together one of my all time favourite English dubs to life, he's a huge reason why I think Berserk ended up becoming a cult classic here in the west.

Happy Birthday Michael Sinterniklaas!

also on a unrelated note...I never knew that he reprised as Leonardo on Mad, such a unexpected reprisal but still cool nonetheless.
