EDITOR'S OPINIONAlrighty then folks, at last here is the VC for Gohan's older self.
We will start this one off with Lex Lang in the 1997 English release of Dragon Ball GT for the PS1. In general, let's just say the voice acting in that game is considered kind of underwhelming with some considerable cases of miscasts. Even Steve Blum was no exception.
But Lex Lang actually did feel like kind of an exception. While I admit at first when it comes to the talent pool he wasn't exactly among my first choices for this role, he was a pleasant surprise. While the fact that the Buu Saga Gohan we see in the game is when he has a more serious role in the show did help, Lex did a fairly suitable voice and performance that's probably one of the better ones in that game.
Earlier this decade when FUNimation got to the Buu Saga, he was voiced by Kyle Hebert. Now Kyle has had some roles in that dub before which were a bit different. However Kyle actually did this rather well. It's what really got us familiar with his young male voices, and to me its probably at least his best performance in the show IMO. When it came to Older Gohan, he was pretty much FUNimation's choice except for ONE dub--their work of the DBZ special History of Trunks, in which he was voiced by Dameon Clarke.
Like Kyle, Dameon was also a bit of an interesting surprise as he too delivered a fairly fitting voice and overall good performance.
In the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ, he was voiced by Brad Swaile, who is often well known for light young male voices--and this is no exception. It's no secret that I love the Ocean Group and Brad was one of the better castings in their dub of the Buu Saga. Whether it's during the more lighthearted earlier portions of the saga, or when things got more serious, Brad was indeed very fitting for the role.
And last but not least is Scott Roberts as Gohan in Dragon Ball GT's Blue Water dub. While he is not as good as the others, his performance was still pretty good and a decent fit for Gohan. While it wasn't one of the best performances in that dub of GT, it's certainly not one of the worst either.
Overall, I like them all, and I am not quite sure who to pick amongst the 5 of them.
