Sometimes I think people can be a way to picky or hateful with the dubbing. when comes to this series.

@MadDude657
Tell me about it! I'm sick of seeing people hate on Bryce as Nagito without any reason other than "he is not Megumi Ogata".

@MizukaS You and me both. The voices I complained about earlier have all grown on me honestly (expect for Shirogane's) and complaining isn't going to change a thing! Granted I have my issues with some of the voices in the series (Shirogane, Peko and some others) but I never go as far as most people do. And the fact that I got a death threat just for saying that Bryce would've made a good Oma is f****** stupid! He isn't that bad of a VA so why are people acting like he's the spawn of Satan? And if you think the voice acting for the series is the only thing that the fanbase is rapid about, then then I'm afraid that your very wrong. It's crazy about literally everything. It goes as far as shipping (basically if you don't ship Komahina your a terrible person.) to which VA portrayed a character better (I've once seen two people throw a bunch of insults at someone just because they said that they liked Austin Tindle's Ishimaru more than Sean Chiplock's). Forgive me if I went off topic or began to rant, I'm just tired of this series's fanbase getting mad at every little thing.
MizukaS

@Soul-dragon
Yeah, I don't like Komahina at all. In fact, I don't even see it. Nagito's definitely interested in Hajime, and he is "in love with his hope" as he says, but is that on a romantic level? Nah, if you ask me. It's fine if someone thinks that way, but I'm personally inclined to disagree, so I would appreciate it if others wouldn't shove that ship down my throat.

Personally, I see Chiaki and Hajime as a ship, since there's an in game event where Hajime's heart beat accelerates when Chiaki fell on top of him. It's also pretty much a no brainer as to which pair has a stronger bond (and if anything, Hajime's feelings towards Nagito is anything but positive). Chiaki and Hajime often support each other as good friends, but I am also inclined to think that their bond is a bit more than just mere friendship. I'm ok with others don't see it the way I do, so it would be great if others would treat me how I'd treat 'em (unfortunately, that sincere notion I have is often not reciprocated by the DR fanbase).

And honestly, if people wanna think Austin portrayed Taka better, then that's their opinion. Vice versa with Sean as the same character. It's honestly really stupid to claim superiority on an opinion; we all have 'em, so even if it's an unpopular one, is there really honestly a need to yell at each other until our faces are beet red over something so subjective? I think not.

^
These are the main reasons why I really dislike the DR fandom in general, since the majority of its fans have given me no reason to make me feel that I even have a sense of belonging.

@MizukaS I definitely agree with you on all of the above expect for the fact that I personally love Komahina LOL. One of the reasons I think it started up was due to the amount of chemistry that Johny and Bryce had with their respective characters and how well the performances blended together. It probably helped as well that both voiced the Okumura bothers on Blue Exorcist so they had probably already grown used to preforming with the others voice. In fact, how much chemistry two VAs can have together can create a lot of ships which is both a good thing and a bad thing.
MizukaS
said at 6:16 PM on Sat Nov 11 2017
@Soul-dragon
Sure, both Johnny and Bryce have an excellent chemistry with each other, but I still don't think Hajime sees Nagito the way the latter sees the former, even if Nagito does see Hajime in a romantic way. Dude's a hope-obsessed nutjob, anyway. If Nagito's drooling over Hajime, it's probably due to the hope Nagito sees in him. But anyway, it's ridiculous how some people could just label others as "terrible" just because they don't like, or even hate Komahina.

@Soul-dragon Well OK, good point there. Maybe not necessarily better per se, but at least hypothetically equal in my own mind;

Vic Mignogna as Kiyo. Xander Mobus as K1-B0, Ashly Burch as Himiko, Robbie Daymond as Shuichi & Marisha Ray as Kaede.
Soul-dragon

@MilanTheVillain01 I can see all of those happening (well expect for Ashly Burch as Himiko because the only dubbing stuff that she's done is for Funimation and I can't see her just miraculously going to work for Bang Zoom.) Granted all of them would've been good but I liked the castings for them.

@DeathGod46 I believe so. It's possible that it was Cup of Tea, but NIS has worked with them yet so it is unlikely.

Honestly, this dub felt average at best. I'm sorry, but some of the voices could've been way better. Some examples are, Shirogane (I really wish that they had gone with someone like Erica Mendez, Cherami Leigh or Natalie Hover.), Oma (I adored Derek Stephen Prince as Fuyuhiko but he sounded a bit to old to play Oma and the voice wasn't cute enough.), Tenko (I really, really wish that Taylor had used her Severa/Selena voice for her. It would've fit her way better, and the screams sounded terrible TBH) and Rantaro (I usually love JYB's work, but his Rantaro felt a bit to stiff. I honestly wish that he and Derek had switched roles. It would've been better). And again, the Monokubs should've been voiced by one person. I don't mind that we got multiple VAs, but it would've made way more since.
MizukaS
said at 12:48 AM on Sat Oct 7 2017
@Soul-dragon
I thought you would have at least realized by now that Nis America does not try to mirror the JP castings, and it is especially apparent that they don't in the DR series. What works for Japan does not necessarily work for a Western audience.

I don't agree with everything you say, but I do agree that Tsumugi's voice is unfitting. That's all. Have a good day.

@MizukaS Again underwhelming. She usually makes such a good use of recycled VAs, but here...well I was pretty disappointed with the 4 characters I mentioned above. Everyone else was OK, but Tenko and Oma's voices were underwhelming compared to their JPN counterparts, Ranatro was extremely stiff and Shirogane...where do I even begin? I have no clue why she thought Dorothy Fahn would be a good fit. Her Sayaka was a total misfire, and Shirogane's even worse. I guess it would be tolerable if the character had a small role, but she was the MASTERMIND! Getting that characters voice wrong can drag down the entire dub (which it kind of did in a way. Most of, if not all of my problems with the dub come from her voice) and ruin the great acting that came from some of the characters. I don't have anything against Fahn, I just think that she would've made a better Kirumi or Maki.

@Soul-dragon I think Johnny did well as Rantaro, actually. He's been using his lower register more often recently (previously he stuck to his natural speaking voice or pitched it up to varying degrees), and I think he was great given the limited material he got. I thought Derek Stephen Prince was a decent Oma, too.

Initially, I wanted the two of them and Grant to switch roles (Grant= Rantaro, Derek= Saihara, Johnny=Oma). I still would like to see that, to be honest. But Grant bowled me over, Johnny turned in a pleasant surprise, and I got roughly what I wanted with Derek , so I'll take it.

Ah, Dorothy... I don't dislike her performance as much the the most of the fans do, but there's something that's not quite doing it for me. It's a shame, because she's got a great voice and sounded like a good choice on paper.
nikipotamus

@nikipotamus (Cont.) And I don't know if there are any dubbing regulars who can match Yamadera's insane range. You'd need a James Arnold Taylor or an Eric Bauza to pull that off.

 3 Shout Outs!
To sum up my thoughts for this dub (and the game in general:

1) Slightly disappointed that new blood isn't used for this production (however, that is compensated with the superb acting and casting choices).

2) I don't like Dorothy as Tsumugi, like most of the fans.

3) Everyone but Dorothy killed it with their performances.

4) This is my most favorite DR game by far. I liked it more than any of its predecessors.

5) The ending is just.... WOW.

The only English VA that I can't place is and/or hasn't been announced is Monosuke's voice. I want to say it's Keith Silverstein but I can't be sure. Anyone else have an idea? If the game is only using previous DR VA's, then the only other people it could be are Matt Mercer or Bryce Papenbrook and I'm pretty sure it's not Bryce.
MizukaS
said at 12:13 PM on Wed Oct 4 2017
@SuperSeanic
Dude, I'm usually pretty confident when it comes to identifying voices, but even I'm not sure about this one. I'm pretty sure we could cross Bryce off the list, like you said. The voice sounds too high pitched to be from Keith or Matt.

The accent makes it difficult to pinpoint the VA. We just have to hope that Monosuke's VA comes out and confirms his role.
Soul-dragon
said at 5:13 PM on Wed Oct 4 2017
@SuperSeanic A part of me thinks that it might be either Brain Beacock, Matthew Mercer, Bryce Papenbrook or Jason Wishnov, but I have no clue. Whoever voiced him has a pretty good range though.

I get the feeling that the V3 characters aren't multicast. But we'll see.... I'm really hoping that the rest of the VAs will come out and confirm their roles by the end of Oct 2017.

Grant George is the perfect Shuichi. He nailed every aspect of Shuichi's character, and he definitely killed it in the finale (final trial).

I don't understand why some people are complaining about the recycled VAs. With the exception of Miu, it's hard to distinguish any of the VAs apart from their previous work. Some very good examples are Kyle Hebert, Kaiji Tang, and Kira Buckland.
MizukaS
said at 10:18 AM on Mon Oct 2 2017
@Dawnlight
Because V3 is a new entry to the DR series and people were expecting Nis to cast new blood instead of VAs that have participated in the series before.

It's also no wonder how Miu sounds so distinctive; I mean, it's Wendee. She's the type of VA that you could spot as soon as she starts speaking. Though unconfirmed atm, I find Tenko's voice easy to spot as well (Julie Ann Taylor). Tenko and Ibuki are similar in the sense that they have a lot of spunk.

I'm pretty bummed none of my predictions for the voice actors were right (only two of the voice actors I guessed were in the game, but not as the characters I thought they'd voice) but most, if not all the voice actors, are pretty good choices so far! I can see where the complaints about Grant George (who also voiced Leon in the first game) voicing Saihara are coming from, but I think he pulls it off pretty well. Plus I think it's nice they had Todd Haberkorn voice Korekiyo. Not only is his voice (much to my surprise, actually) very fitting for the character, but he stays alive longer than a single chapter and that's great. And you have no idea how long it took me to find out Kyle Hebert was voicing (my new favorite) Kaito. He just had to say ONE THING similar to Kamina for it to click. Overall, I would have preferred fresh blood (my predictions for the V3 voice cast was built around that idea), but the voice cast isn't too bad in my book.
MizukaS
said at 10:20 AM on Mon Oct 2 2017
@Anichibi
Yeah, gonna have to agree that V3 is cast well for the most part. Only one that irks me a bit is Tsumugi's voice. It's comparable to Fuka from P3 before Wendee took over.

Out of curiosity, which two VAs did you predict?
Soul-dragon

@Anichibi The dub is definitely OK, with Keebo and Korekiyo having the strongest voices and Oma's and Shirogane's being the worst (it honestly sounds like Tommy Wiseau).

Contrarily, I really liked Kokichi's performance. Considering the fact that Kokichi is a troll, I like how Derek maintains a sarcastic tone for the role (most of the time).

I thought the French/Old Brit accent was used by Marieve for Celestia, instead of Angie. Since there is no official confirmation yet, I'm gonna go ahead and speculate that Angie is voiced by Cassandra Lee Morris. To me, Angie sounds like an accented Morgana.

The voice who I'm the most curious to see in this game is Shirogane's. I will admit that I've been extremely harsh on Dorothy Fahn because I didn't think her voice fit the character and for that I apologize to her. It was wrong of me to say some of the things I did on both YouTube and this site and I do hope that she can forgive me for it (even though I don't think I deserve it). But I can't see how they're going to make it sound (HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD!) intimating/creepy for the final trail. But I'm hoping that she'll be able to surprise me. (SPOILERS END HERE) I just hope that she'll be able to pull it off because the Danganronpa fandom can be quite...harsh when it comes to a voice they don't think fits a character. But I'll see what happens.

"I just hope that she'll be able to pull it off because the Danganronpa fandom can be quite...harsh when it comes to a voice they don't think fits a character. "

I never liked most of the DR fandom for that reason, you know. People could complain all day, but in the end, nobody will be able to get Nis America to delete Dorothy's lines and then recast the role to someone else.

Now, I wouldn't say that particular voice Dorothy used is exactly ideal either, but for some reason, I think it.... works? Kinda? Perhaps this is what they mean by "mixed feelings". Yeah, that's it.
Soul-dragon
said at 9:56 AM on Sat Sep 30 2017
@MizukaS Yeah, when it comes to voice acting the fanbase is extremely cruel. They go from sending death threats (twice) to making entire videos based on mourning a character's voice (when the character is recast for the anime). And complaining definitely won't change a thing.
MizukaS
said at 10:04 AM on Sat Sep 30 2017
@Soul-dragon
They could learn a thing or two from the BTVA staff. It's ok to dislike something; several of us have expressed those feelings properly without actually offending or be condescending about it. But it's never ok to send death threats, demand that a VA be recast, etc. It's just... not right.
Soul-dragon
said at 10:16 AM on Sun Oct 1 2017
@MizukaS I definitely agree. The thing that made me realize saying that I there was an anime just so she'd get recasted is this statement said by Serena's VA (from Pokemon):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr_PeFJSbAU. In the end, it is important to remember as much as you dislike a voice, voice actors are normal people as well and bashing them just for doing their job is not OK.

I have a feeling I'll remember this game. And not because of the recycled VAs, or the story, but instead because Bryce Papenbrook received death threats (like Christina Vee) after first trailer came out. Everyone thought he was the voice of Oma and they decided they didn't like his performance (even though he actually wasn't Oma's VA).

Hey at least Adrien and Marinette have something else to talk about!

@DeathGod46 I don't understand. Complaining and sending death threats are two different things. While both are about not liking something, it's one thing to criticize someone and another to demand their death.There are some performances I hate with all of my being (for example Dorothy Fahn as Shirogane, Cindy Robinson as Hinoka or Jamie Marchi as Gou Matsouka) but all three of them seem like nice people, but I'd never demand their death just for one performance!

@DeathGod46 The character Cristina voiced in Danganronpa: Another Episode, Monaca was an unlikeable character. A "green-haired spawn of Satan", if you will.

Yeah, I love the fact that a VA got death threats due to non-participation as well. Seriously though, nobody deserves that, even if the performance was terrible, and the worst kind of miscast that anyone could make. At the very core, voice actors are human beings, too. Nobody deserves to die over a fictional setting, a game, or anime. Nobody. A disappointing performance is one thing, but that doesn't mean they've committed an actual crime (you know, breaking the law).

On a related note, Kokichi is actually Derek Stephen Prince, Fuyuhiko's VA.
Soul-dragon
said at 10:55 AM on Thu Nov 9 2017
@MizukaS Yeah. However I will admit that the reason I get mad about him receiving death threats is because I received one just for suggesting that he'd make a good English voice for Oma.

I always tell people that the fanbase isn't worth dropping the series for. The fanbase doesn't reflect the quality of the actual franchise, so regardless of how toxic it is, I'm not dropping it. What I'd do instead is just ignore the clearly toxic ones, and seek out the more reasonable ones, such as yourself, Soul.

@DeathGod46 I'm positive about that too. And he seems to be using a quieter version of his normal voice. And because of how close it sounds to his Hajime voice, he has changed his Hajime to sound more like the voice he uses as Renton (Eureka Seven) and Kota (God Eater).

@Soul-dragon That's my big issue. Several of these VAs have very iconic voices that no matter what you can tell who they are. And then some of the other VAs are playing roles that require a similar voice to their previous characters. I would've probably rearranged a couple of these (ex. switch Dorothy Fahn and Julie Ann Taylor's characters so they don't sound almost identical to their previous roles). And also had removed some of these VAs for VAs that aren't quite as easily recognizable.

@Unknownsage13 You and I can agree on that. Honestly I would've switched Fahn and Mendez's roles as well as Bosch and Prince's. It would've given them all a chance to use a different voice instead of the ones for their previous characters. I would've also had Herington drop the accent (it does fit Angie perfectly but it makes her sound indentical to Celestia).

The reason why Nis is recycling all the VAs is revealed in the final chapter. I have a theory (though not officially confirmed), and you're gonna have to reach the end first so that I don't spoil this for anyone else.

I see why, but still it's kinda unfortunate. Nevertheless, I do feel virtually everyone sounds different.

My theory is that it simply costs less to recycle the VAs. More cost effective, that way. And you're telling me when you say it's "unfortunate". Dude, I had an entire dream cast list of all 16 students; featuring only VAs that haven't been a part of any Dangan Ronpa media. They very well could have been in V3, cuz those VAs are non-union or ficore.

@MizukaS In this game it's clear how it's a cost perspective but still, would have liked some new blood. Good VO though.

Dorothy could actually use a voice (she has a lot of voices at her disposal) that works for Tsumugi. The forced, high pitched voice she used is a great subject of controversy because it sounds unnatural. But if Dorothy lowered the voice to a more natural, medium range, then I doubt anyone's gonna complain.

On another note, I really like Erica as Maki. She plays a girl this time instead of a boy (she was Nagisa in Despair Girls).

As great as I think the English cast so far is, I would've preferred fresh blood, so to speak.

@MilanTheVillain01 Same. The reason for it is this new thing that allows characters from past games to communicate. However, I do hope that they don't just used recycled VAs for future versions, because you can only use the same VAs so many times...

Not going to lie, it is a bit disappointing to see that all of the VAs so far are recycled. And honestly? I'm not the biggest fan of some of the voices (Shirogane's, Tojo's and Ouma's).

@Soul-dragon However Oma's voice has grown on me quite a lot. It sounds cute and creepy. The same can be said with Tojo. However, I have yet to get used to Shirogane's....

Honest question, is NIS America talent pool really that small? I don't mind a few recycles here and there, but for this game I'm confident that pretty much ALL the kids VAs were in previous entries.

@Marakutanay
NISA doesn't have a talent pool, they use Bang Zoom and New Generation Pictures for their games.
There's probably a reason why every voice actor so far is a returned. I don't know much about the game's plot at all, but I'm guessing that the characters from previous games probably make small voiced cameos.

@Marakutanay All of the other characters show up from the previous games. But honestly? It's still no excuse for using still using recycled VAs. I don't mind some of the VAs who have returned in their roles but I do mind the voices for three characters (those being the ones I mentioned earlier). I know it's to save money and all, but I honestly would've appreciated a bit more effort.

So far all the VAs announced for this (that I've seen anyways) have been in previous games. Slightly disappointed in this considering there's still plenty of VAs who have yet to appear in the franchise.

@Unknownsage13

I think a reason why so many voice actors from the previous games are being brought back is because of the whole FUNimation replacing everyone thing, so the BZ director is giving the actors who were replaced by FUNimation another character in the franchise to compensate for missing out on a lot of work. Especially since FUNimation is not likely to replace them again in any animated adaptation or sequel to this game.

@rebelcheese sorry for the late reply. But I really don't think that is at all a reason. Like I doubt NISA really care or take that into account.
And then also there are several VAs that chances are won't even appear in an anime adaptation dubbed by Funi (Julie Ann Taylor, Dorothy Fahn, etc). And also it is featuring VAs that already appeared in anime adaptations (Kira Buckland, Christine Marie Cabanos, etc).

Should be interesting to see who dubs the Monocubs, Yamadera really utilized his range here.

@FUNiman It's shaping up to be multiple people, which is a disappointment. My top choice for the Monocubs was Tom Kenny, but my realistic choice was Xander Mobus, but who knows? It might work out!

@Soul-dragon Yeah I'm a bit disappointed (even if it was all obviously one person I still woulda liked to hear that) but all the voices fit the cubs pretty well so I'm not too upset.

@Soul-dragon
It's better for the Monokubs to be voiced by multiple people instead of one, imo (which I'm glad that's what Nis decided to do). Pretty much any VA has a distinct voice pattern, and when you dump 5 roles into a single VA, that tends to lead to less desirable results. That strains the VA a lot, and it's even worse when you could tell that it's all from the same VA.

Also, hearing a grown man try to sound all cutesy (Monophanie) would sound really, really off. So, I'm really glad that Nis cast Natalie Hoover instead. She's always been good at the cutesy voice.
Soul-dragon
said at 3:31 PM on Fri Oct 6 2017
@MizukaS Disagreed. It would make since for the Monokubs to have one distinct voice pattern since they were made at the same time. As for Monophanie, isn't she supposed to be sort of creepy? Bottom line is, it should've been one person. I'm positive that there are some VAs who could've pulled it off (Tara Strong, Erica Mendez, Xander Mobus and Tom Kenny to name a few). However, I don't mind getting multiple people, but what I say still stands.

Bots that are made at the same time does not = same voice pattern

All the Monokubs have distinct personalities, so it makes more sense for them to have different voices. Let's agree to disagree.

Less opinions and more the passive-aggressive "Let's agree to disagree" shutting down the conversation whenever anyone raises a contrary opinion.

@NCZ
We all have different opinions. And there are, of course times that others won't agree with you. And that's fine. The world would be stale if everyone has the same opinion, anyway. That's why BTVA is such an interesting place.

So anyway, when a conversation or discussion gets to that point, the point of neither participant could agree with one another, there really is no need to continue any further discussion. I mean, if neither one of you could agree to one another, then it's best to call it quits. I know no matter how much I say, I wouldn't be able to get Soul Dragon to agree with my viewpoint about the Monokubs, seeing as he has a completely different viewpoint about the matter.

Hence I decided to stop the conversation and move on to something else. Maybe my usage of "let's agree to disagree" sounded passive aggressive to you, but truthfully speaking, I used the
below definition of the expression.

"Agreeing to disagree simply means coming to an understanding with someone that you have a difference of opinion. When you agree to disagree, you acknowledge that neither person is going to convince the other person to change his or her mind, so you might as well stop arguing and move on!"

Honestly, there really is no point in having lengthy discussions if you know for certain there is no way for you to convince other people to change their minds. Continuing could potentially lead to less desirable results. There's no point in turning it into a heated debate.
