Lewis Lemay - Sounds more throaty than old.
Simon Prescott - The acting and voice are spot-on, I can easier trace his voice to Dr. Onishi more than I did for Lewis Lemay's.

The scene towards the end when Akira comes back and swallows Tetsuo in his explosion to prevent Tetsuo's escalating power from causing more destruction is his best moment. That would have been the perfect scene for this voice compare, and Simon Prescott nailed it.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Absolutely. I felt a lot more panic and fear in his voice during that scene and in his role in general. I can sorta see what the casters were going for with Lewis, but he sounded too hoarse and scratchy and not emotional enough. It didn't help that he was given baffling dialogue to work with ("a cosmic rebirth")

@JTurner I thought Simon Prescott made Onishi pretty darn memorable for a minor character. That "This is impossible!" (can't remember the exact wording, I hope that's right) just nailed the white-haired scientist trope dead-on without making him sound hammy. Loved it.
