EDITOR'S OPINION

Yes folks believe it or not this is the first VC for a character in the DB saga whom is actually from the not-so well received Dragon Ball GT namely the diminutive little robot Giru.

In the FUNi dub of Dragon Ball GT he is voiced by VA Sonny Strait whom is well known for doing goofy higher voices and this is no exception. Sonny Straight's Giru voice is a nice goofy cutesy higher tone with a little bit of a robotic modification to his voice and certainly fitted Giru's persona and is one of the best performances in the FUNi dub of the show.

In the Blue Water dub he is voiced by Matthew "Trunks/Zoids Van" Erickson in which his voice is not QUITE as goofy as Sonny's but its not bad and it certainly is more robotic. (But to be fair that's more likely due to the Blue Water dub making the Robotic Alteration considerably thicker.)

Both are good but I am going with Sonny Straight here.

Going with Matthew Erickson. Sonny was cute sounding, but a bit grating at times as Giru.

I'm going with Matthew here. Sonny's Stitch-like voice was kind of grating.

As much as I like Sonny Strait, he just sounds too goofy.

I think I'll be waiting for Shinn Asuka- I mean, Matthew Erickson.

I looked at the voice compare and expected to vote for Sonny Strait but he was just too goofy. Matthew Erickson's performance was hard to judge, but the voice was very cool. It might get annoying after a while, but Matthew gets my vote.

I think Matthew Erickson does better. He gave a straight up well acted performance even disregarding the robotic effects (which they probably had to use since...well...he's a robot.) He gave a more serious performance but could be comedic when he had to be. He was much better as Giru/Gill than he was as Trunks.

Sonny Strait just adds this lame cutesy goofy tone to his voice that is clearly not needed and just makes him sound like too much of a joke.

So yeah, Matthew Erickson by far.

I don't like either of them. Strait sounds too goofy and Erickson's sounds too robotic.

Shinobu Sato-uchi FTW!

I can't really choose. I don't know, Strait just sounded too goofy to me.

Both were good, but Strait gave the better performance because he didn't rely on any computer voice alteration like Erickson did.
