Its funny that most of the cast here (Japanese & English) plays a part in the Sailor Moon series.

I'm glad to see Mai is going to be in this game.

@Cartoonguy133

I'm interested in what moveset she's going to have. A Team Ninja specific moveset or an inspired moveset from KOF Maximum Impact. Also I'm interested if she'll have an English audio track and the actress to play the character.

@akersaotome She's undubbed, sadly...

@Dee15gon

I figured as much given from what I've seen from her gameplay on youtube. Still she sounds better than the Virtua Fighter characters with their "sound files" from Sega. Now I'm wondering if the actress, Ami Koshimizu re-recorded Mai's lines for the game, or SNK simply sent the sound files to Team Ninja.

@akersaotome Lets say she did have a dubbed voice. Who do you think could voice her?

@Dee15gon


Keeping it to English VO, viewed as purely hypothetical fun and more importantly, not to be a sound-alike to Mai's past and present actresses.

My brain says Trina Nishimura. My heart says Emily Neves.

@akersaotome Oh! I got a good one. Nicole Balick. She could work too.

@Dee15gon

Wasn't sure who Nicole Balick is, so I did a check on this site and turns out she played Tear Grants from Tales of the Abyss. That takes me back, good times with that game.

@akersaotome I do recall her being the Femme Fatale voice in Soul Calibur V. But its not just that. He voice for Aya in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos also gave me ideas.

@Dee15gon I always thought Lauren Landa (the voice of Kasumi in this game) would be a good English Mai even before she was announced for this game.
Dee15gon
said at 2:54 PM on Tue Nov 1 2016
@Cartoonguy133 Yeah. She could work. I also think Erica Lindbeck would be a good fit for Mai too.

@Dee15gon

As much as we hypothetically like to cast an english speaking actress for Mai; the next question is, translating the names of Mai's special moves. Should they be translated into english or actress says the names, as it's said in japanese?

So that's NyoTengu disposed of...

That just leaves Mila and our diamond in the rough, Ms. P.

Just listened to NyoTengu's English voice. She sounds like Brina Palencia. I won't jump to conclusions. I'm just explaining what she sounds like after playing the game.

Is there any confirmation on who voiced the English version of Mila?

@akersaotome Lauren Landa voices Mila
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:13 PM on Fri Jul 18 2014
@supersenketsu I doubt that. Lauren Landa has repeatedly confirmed and discussed that she plays Kasumi, but has never once mentioned voicing Mila.

If Leia Rolando taught me anything, it's that Landa can channel Michelle Ruff quite easily.

So the mystery of the English VA for Mila is still unsolved?

Is this enough proof that J. Michael Tatum is Bayman?

@Evil Cheese Wedge

For all we know Lori Ingham (who wrote that article) used imdb or wikipedia as a source. It could be correct but I've read articles that have mistakes.

e.g. Some writers thought the late Michael Jackson (singer) was voice acting in DC Animation movies when it was an unrelated person with the same name.
Evil Cheese Wedge
said at 1:45 AM on Sun Dec 9 2012
@Jackson_H

I see. We'll just have to wait and see if another source can confirm who played Bayman.

Also, I think Brittney Harvey should be added as Ayane. I've compared Ayane to Sakura from SFIV and they sound EXACTLY the same.

Now we've been brought back even further, I just contacted Cabanos and as it turns out, she did NOT do the voice of Mila.

Man it sucks that the voice actors aren't credited.

@Evil Cheese Wedge You're not the only one who dislikes the "uncredited actors" scenario.

It just results in many wild guesses leading to more confusion. And what about the people who like certain performances yet they won't know who did the role? You think it's fair for them? This is exactly why I don't like it as well.

Why haven't the english voice actors for Ayane, Bayman, Gen Fu and Mila been updated yet?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 6:37 AM on Tue Oct 9 2012
@Evil Cheese Wedge Because I haven't confirmed them.
Evil Cheese Wedge
said at 7:46 PM on Fri Oct 12 2012
@NCZ What more do you need to confirm them? Numerous sources including IMDb officially credit Brittney Harvey as Ayane, J. Michael Tatum as Bayman, Kirk Thornton as Gen Fu and Christine Marie Cabanos as Mila. What more is needed? I don't want this to remain incomplete for no reason.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:10 PM on Fri Oct 12 2012
@Evil Cheese Wedge See, the thing is that IMDB and other such sites are user-submitted. And these users pretty much just take their "best guesses" and submit them as fact. We need actual confirmation from the voice actors themselves, or I can at least listen to the characters to hear if the guesses are plausible or not.

It's less Gen Fu and Mila that are the issue; those two are plausible (haven't heard much of Gen Fu to know if it's Kirk for sure, and I'm not familiar with Christine's work), but I have doubts for Ayane and Bayman. Bayman because J. Michael Tatum works in Texas, not LA, and it doesn't sound like him to me, and Ayane because Brittney Harvey doesn't have a history of working non-union or for Cup of Tea, the company that dubbed this game. Be patient.

@NCZ So how exactly do you get the official confirmation for uncredited VAs like this game?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:35 PM on Fri Oct 12 2012
@Evil Cheese Wedge Voice acting resumes, tweets, facebook fanpages, interviews if the game is old enough. Things like that.

If that really is J. Michael Tatum as Bayman I gotta get this ASAP thats one of my absolute favorite voice actors and Bayman is like my favorite character in the DOA series I LOVE IT WHEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE VAs VOICE ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS!!!!!

Actually, you're wrong about Zack's voice actor. He is voiced by Reno Wilson.

@Evil Cheese Wedge I find it weird that DOA5 is non-union compared to DOA Dimensions, which is union. That makes it harder for the voice actors to be identified.

@Evil Cheese Wedge I'll have to look into these in order to confirm them.

Wished the voice over for the Virtua Fighter characters were given a new recording, rather than having an audio port from the arcade/console versions.
