Saito, the Sniper in Section 9, unlike the previous GITS two characters for this VC (Batou, The Chief) he makes his debut in Stand Alone Complex. Granted unlike Motoko, Batou, The Chief (and to a lesser extent Togusa) he has a rather secondary role in the show. (Don't get me wrong he certainly gets his moments but still.)

First of all we have VA Dave Wittenburg as Saito, the voice and the performance are a suitable fit for Saito in every aspect.

In those recap special dubs we have also well known VA Brian Drummond doing the role instead and to be honest I can say the same thing.

It's not exactly the best performance out of either VA but its a pretty good example of their handiwork.

Honestly, they're both equally good.

It's really a matter of personal preference on this one...both Dave Wittenberg and Brian Drummond have a very similar intelligent, sniper like portrayal of Saito here.

I guess I'd go with Dave Wittenberg since he has a bit more energy in his take, but Brian Drummond's also really good with his more controlled delivery, so it's really a tie overall.

I guess it's all just a matter of personal preference.
