EDITOR'S OPINIONWell folks its been a little while since the last time I did a DBZ VC so I thought I do a little something here for the North Kai namely King Kai!
First of all we have Ocean Group VA Don Brown in which he is well known for doing goofy higher voices well and this is no exception. While Don Brown does get points on how it doesn't sound too much like his Pilaf/Garlic Jr. voices, he does do a suitable job portraying King Kai's Fozzie Bear-esque sense of humor but is capable of toning it down when Kai has to be serious.
Sean Schemmel is the current VA of King Kai in the FUNimation dub and is his 2nd most recognized voice just closely behind Goku. But while the original VA change from Ocean to FUNi has always been a controversial topic I always did find Sean Schemmel's King Kai to be one of the better changes. As much as I enjoyed Don Brown's King Kai back when the FUNi VA talent tried to be like the Ocean VA talent Sean Schemmel's King Kai was in spirit with Don Brown's work. (And to be honest I actually liked Sean's King Kai more than his Goku.)
And last but not least is Canadian VA Dean Galloway as King Kai in the Blue Water dub of DBGT and this was a rather pleasant surprise as well. While Dean seems to be Blue Water's "Go-to guy" for higher older male voices his voice was very much like Don Brown and Sean Schemmel's King Kai voice and is probably one of the better performances in the Blue Water DBGT dub.
So overall I liked all 3 of these performances and I am not quite sure who to pick here to be honest...
(Note: Found a clip of King Kai in the Malaysian English dub of the 3rd movie and while some might appreciate the idea of a King Kai from doesn't have a high voice but this just sounds WAY too awkward. Of course the overly thick accent doesn't help.)
