October may be over with for 2010 but here is another Castlevania VC just to even some things out and this time its for one of Alucard's aides in Symphony of the Night... THE MASTER LIBRARIAN! Master Librarian is a relatively minor character in Symphony of the Night whom is pretty much the merchant of the game selling Alucard various things. In the PS1 version I would simply describe Dennis Falt as... okay. Alright perhaps Master Librarian's voice in the PS1 version is a bit generic but it does work okay for the role and the overall performance is very average at best.

In the new PSP version of the game that came with the Dracula X Chronicles, Kyle Hebert voiced the Master Librarian and I will say this much that this does feel like a fairly interesting change of pace. (But to be fair Kyle doesn't voice elderly roles all that often.) But while Kyle's voice for the role does seem to be in spirit to his PS1 counterpart it does feel a bit more natural and his performance worked well enough as well. While Kyle's work as Master Librarian may be above average in general its a pretty good example of the voicework in that version of the game. Overall neither one are really bad but I am going with Kyle Hebert a bit more this time around.

Kyle Hebert's showing genuine range as the Master Librarian here: very impressive from him & I actually think this is perhaps the best elderly man voice I've heard him do so far.

Dennis Falt has a good voice for the Master Librarian, but his delivery is a little inconsistent and forced at times.

Overall, I feel Kyle Hebert is the best Master Librarian.

Both voices are really similar and fitting! However Kyle Hebert's acting is less over-the-top so I'm going with him.

As much as I liked Travis as Death, this makes me feel like they should've gotten Kyle Herbert to voice him instead, he comes a lot closer to Dennis Falt's voice.

@Metabad But shouldn't one fit the *character*, rather than previously established voices?

@huzaifa_ahmed That's true. I liked Travis just fine as Death, but Dennis I actually felt was a little more fitting for the character. Kyle wouldn't have to copy it exactly of course, but this compare makes me feel like he could've come close to or even surpassed Dennis if given the chance.

That's just me, though.

@Metabad *As much as I liked Patrick as Death

*I liked Patrick just fine as Death

There we go.

@Metabad When you actually listen to Death's voice in the SOTN redub... I'm actually surprised none of us noticed it earlier.

But I suppose the master and his loyal servant sharing the same VA is pretty cool!

@HylianBelmont And then in Judgement they switched voices!

@NCZ That too yeah! Douglas Rye did an impeccable job as both of them though.

Kyle Hebert is a bit more restrained, I thought Dennis Falt made the master librarian sound a little too excited. My vote's going to Kyle Hebert.

@Belial Edge Now that ain't how it is. It's supposed to be "Just who the hell do you I think I am?!"

Yes, I'm pretty much just saying...

@Ninjaman15 That may be so, but it needs to fit his way of speaking. XD
