EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Giant Robo VC section we have this VC for the first villain that the IPO actually fights in the Giant Robo OVA... Q BOSS! We shall begin this with the 90s dub of the OVA with Kevin Seymour (whom also voiced Issei in this dub as well). Kevin does a fairly good job in trying to ham it up as a good old fashioned villain whom sounds a bit flamboyant but Kevin's performance does make a pretty good effort in making it work for the role. (Though I must say that I will give Kevin some bonus points for that evil laugh as its not one of the best evil laughs I have heard but it is a pretty impressive one nevertheless.) While Kevin's performance as Q Boss is only above average in general but it is a good example of the voice work in the 90s dub of the OVA.
In the 2000s dub of the OVA done by Anime Works, NY Voice Actor David Zen Mansley gets to take over the role here. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by David's work for the role as like his Californian Counterpart David's performance was suitably over the top but I did like the sense of smugness that David did for the role as it does make Q Boos sound a bit more evil. (Though the somewhat nasally Droll voice that David did for the role does help.) David Zen Mansley's voice and performance for Q Boss felt very natural for the role and is a good example of the voice work in the 2000s dub of the series. Overall both of these guys did pretty well for the role but I will go with David Zen Mansley a bit more here.
