Spike's got a higher pitched voice, so this is why whiny roles like these are his forte. And his screams? Holy moly, I don't think anyone else could have topped him on those. Simply amazing!

Shinji is my only favourite male character on this show.
In the English and French dub, he has the coolest voice of all time.

Shinji is born to be understood. His father left him when he was a toddler and his mother died Now he has to endure people and challenges that do nothing but hurt him.While he doesn't want to be around people, or get hurt by others, he doesn't want to hurt others either. Shinji Ikari has every right to be who he is, and despite all of it, he continues to fight under the circumstances. The best scene in the series has to be when he is willing to get hurt trying to save Rei Ayanami in the end of Evangelion 2.22.

Spike Spenser started out with a typical "grown man trying to sound like a young teen" voice with little personality to it. In Rebuiled however he puts subtle aspects in his performance that make Shinji seem like a more sympathetic character. Even the voice itself sounds more believable. A HUGE step up from the old "golly it's the geofront, jee wizz" performance.

@Ringworm128 His Rebuild performance really gets that "awkward teenager" sound down very believably. I like Megumi Ogata in the role too, but Spike's screams at the finale of 2.22 blew me away. I could just feel every ounce of pain and determination Shinji felt and his screams seemed to meld perfectly with the music. It was freaking incredible.

I can't believe he hasn't gotten more acclaim for his work in the Rebuild films.

I'll admit that Spike's rough start convinced me to watch most the series in Japanese, but he vastly improves as the series progresses and by the Rebuild films... wow. (We need voice compares to include the Japanese clips, in my opinion... and I'm a dub fan!)

Megumi Ogata is one of the major factors of what makes Shinji my #1 crush :) I can't say the same for Spike, however T_T
