You know I find both Justin Cook and Jeffrey Watson both rather fitting in the role. Though Cook has a bit more of an edge since he's voiced him longer, in more things and has had better direction for the most part.

Though if Jeffrey reprised for Ocean Kai he could be great.

I really don't think that's Andrew Francis for around that point of the dub, I believe he already went through puberty and his voiced deepened. I'm not sure who it is, I've heard it might have been Reece Thompson but I'm not certain. He was alright whoever he is but I don't get much of a sense that Dende is older at all, he just sounds like a kid still.

I'll go with Justin but I feel Jeffrey does have potential.

Is there any announcement on who will voice this guy for Ocean's version of Kai? I kinda like Jeff to voice him again, he sounds stiff here but his voice has potential

Justin Cook easily. Andrew comes second, but he should've gone a bit deeper. Jeffrey Watson...is a bad actor.

@Galactic_Cyrus This isn't a good example of Jeff's work, he actually is a pretty good actor

@Music Meister I guess he was just bad in this role?

@Galactic_Cyrus Early Blue Water anime work was not so great but then again neither was early Funimation voices. Jeff is a pretty good actor for the few roles I've seen him recently

Justin Cook pretty much sounds like an older version of Laura Baily's Dende so he gets my vote.

I was listening to all the clips and I voted for Francis because he sounded the most suitable.
