HBD Sonny Strait

Love the guy as Lupin,Krillin,Bardock, Hughes and other roles but those are his most popular in the fandom but krillin and Hughes are a tie for me.

i love his chemistry with Meredith McCoy wether it be krillin and 18 or Fuiko and Lupin and its great to see they reunuted for super.

i cant wait to see him dub the universe surival arc but on the bright side i did get to see that infamous goku punches krillin scene from him and it was hilarious like i expected

HBD Sonny.

Happy Birthday, Don "Sonny" Strait!

Excellent as Usopp from One Piece's FUNimation English dub, Krillin as well as Bardock in their Dragonball related material, and Maes Hughes in Fullmetal Alchemist's dubs. His performance as Krillin really improved a lot over the years, and over time, he ended up making it his own.

Happy Birthday Sonny Straight!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Maes Hughes (Fullmetal Alchemist)
2.) Krillin (Dragon Ball Z)
3.) Ragnarok (Soul Eater)
4.) Present Mic (My Hero Academia)
5.) Arnese Lupin III (Lupin The 3rd)
6.) Bardock (Dragon Ball Z)
7.) Misuzu Sonoda (Ouran High School Host Club)
8.) Minoru "The Doctor" Kamiya (Yu Yu Hakusho)
9.) Bernard (Maria The Virgin Witch)
10.) Issei's Father (High School DXD)

It's a shame Sonny was unavailable the past season to reprise as Present Mic in My Hero Academia Season 2, for health reasons. I remember hearing he was going to return for the home release of this season. I haven't gotten around to watching Season 2 yet, I will soon, so I have no idea how his replacement did in comparison.

I also look forward to hearing more of his Krillin as the Dragon Ball Super dub continues, Krillin gets a bit more focus later on and it should be great to hear Sonny performing here.

I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by his Allen in the new Escaflowne dub. He sounds a little older than Brian's Drummond's take, but his performance is similarly charming.

My favorite roles include Krillin,Bardock,General Blue,Lupin, Mae Hughes, the doctor from Yu Yu Hakusho and Apachai.
I have seen the Ecaflowne trailer he sounds great as Allen.
Sonny is one Funimation's most talented and underated voice actors for sure.

Happy Belated Birthday Sonny! I haven't heard much from him in a while, but it really is surprising how different Bardock is from his usual roles. I was watching clips from Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit where Bardock runs into Krillin. At that moment, I actually FORGOT they were played by the same man!

Besides them, I also love him as Maes Hughes, Usopp, Seiji Mido, Papa Fox, Ragnarok, and Misuzu Sonoda among others.

Happy Birthday, Sonny Strait! Certainly one of FUNimation's most entertaining VAs for me it's really good that he's still in business after all these years as well. My favorite Strait roles include Krillin and Bardock from the Dragon Ball series alongside Maes Hughes, Usopp, Ragnarok, original T.O.M., Present Mic, Issei's Father, Apachai Hopachai, and Kyuzo.

Happy Birthday Sonny Straight!

He has such a knack for voicing great comedy relief characters with Maes Hughes being his character and role to date. He just nails the lovable, admirable and sadly tragic family man, I loved his delivery for whenever he talked about his daughter Elicia, that was always a good laugh.

Of course he was fantastic in some of his other roles like Krillin, Bardock, Ragnarok, Lupin III, Reedus Jonah, Issei's Father and from what I have seen Korosensei in Assassination Classroom. It was very nice of FUNimation to give him such a major role like this, which as of late he hadn't been getting as much of. Hopefully we'll continue to hear more of Sonny more often from here on out.

I also like his performances as Present Mic, Misuzu Sonoda, Minoru "The Doctor" Kamiya and Bernard.

Happy Birthday Sonny Straight!

Usopp and Apachai are my favorite roles of his!

Lupin was pretty good too but it did sound a bit similar to Krillin at times... :)

If Funimation dubs The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, hopefully his voice will sound more polished and distinct.
