Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Q Boss with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Giant Robo

Q Boss is one of the antagonists of the Giant Robo anime OVA and one of the secondary members of Big Fire. Q Boss' claim to fame is that he is the first enemy that the International Police Organization actually fights in the OVA and not much else. Q Boss is the head of the Q soldiers which are basically Big Fire's minions that wear black sock-like masks while Q Boss wears a Red and Black sock-like mask and his robot is a big green Caterpillar-like robot. Q Boss only appeared in the first episode and was first seen on a top of a train trying to mug Professor Shizuma by taking the Attache case that Shizuma was carrying.

Today 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.
