Voice Compare » Macross » Rick Hunter / Hikaru Ichijo

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rick Hunter / Hikaru Ichijo with sound clips and images.
Despite the Americanized name, Rick Hunter isn't all that different from his japanese counterpart Hikaru Ichijo.  Rick Hunter starts out in the beginning of series as a young, peaceful, civilian pilot, but soon matures into more of fighter throughout the series.  In all of Rick Hunter's appearances in the Robotech franchise he is voiced Tony Oliver.

Hikaru's VA is unknown like most of the cast In the infamous toho based dub of the compilation film Do You Remember Love? renamed "Super Spacefortress Macross" or the even more infamous edit "Clash of the Bionoids" 


When ADV re-released Super Dimension Fortress Macross in 2005 a new english dub was produced with a more faithful script, Vic Mignonga was chosen to voice the main character Hikaru in this uncut english dub.

In this argument I'm going with Vic as Hikaru Ichijo, something about his line delivery and overenthusiastic energy he gives to the character makes him stand out more and make him a little more believable than Tony Oliver.

Plus as someone who prefers the original SDF Macross over Robotech the voices for the characters in the ADV Macross dub sound more natural.

I'm normally a stickler for dubs not making huge changes to shows or sticking them together with other shows, but Tony Oliver's Rick appeals to me more than Vic Mignogna's Hikaru. The Unknown actor is just terrible.

Eh... don't care for Vic Mignogna. His voice irritates me. Gotta go with Tony Oliver.

I liked Vic as Hikaru. There are fans like Hikuro that think the dub is bad, personally I think that they were expecting too much. I thought that Vic did a good job portraying Hikaru as cocky wiseass which he was even in the original Japanese version. It's not everyones cup of tea, but it could have been a lot worse to be perfectly honest.

damn thought that unknown would of been me for a second. sadly ADV's version of the Macross series was down right horrible, one of the worst dubs they've done which good riddens to them.
Tony Oliver has been the only best one out there despite it being americanized so much. But Vic......dear god he just does not fit.
