Best performance is probably Keith (who hopefully will be added in the near future to this). Next I'll go for Michael and then Tom. Steve I regard the lowest, but in all honesty if he could voice Char again and had a great director, he would probably sound the best in the role.

Wow, Steve Blum does not sound like himself here. Perhaps its just because he was a bit younger at the time, but the trademark growl in his voice (which varies from slight on characters like Spike Spiegel, to pronounced on characters like Wolverine and Sub-Zero) is pretty much entirely absent.

@BlueScarabGuy That dub was from 1999, same year as Bebop.

@Nightmare Crusher Really? That's crazy. Goes to show that Steve has more range than a lot of people give him credit for. He's still probably the weakest performer as Char, but that's almost certainly due to lackluster direction.

@BlueScarabGuy Eh, I would still say he's better than Tom Edwards. Steve's Char doesn't hold a candle to Michael Kopsa, but he still has something of that cold edge Char needs. Most of that dub is awful, but Char was one of the better parts.

I think Michael Kopsa is slightly better than Keith Silverstein, but those two are the best voices.

Ignoring that comment below, since it is not a good representation on who I am in the slightest.

Having said that, the point still stands, with one exception. Silverstein>Kopsa>Blum>Edwards.

I thought Mr. Edwards was great compared to Kopsa but that was comparing Zeta's dub to MSG's and MSG's dub is one of the worst I've ever heard. (simply because it had a great cast and yet none of them put in any effort)

Then I saw Char's Counterattack and his speech there. Kopsa has become my favorite Char now. I still like Edwards - he was playing a very different Char from the one Kopsa is known for.

Michael Kopsa is the best by far. His voice is very cold and it perfectly fits Char's personality. Steve Blum is pretty good too, although his voice is a bit too plain. Tom Edwards sounds similar to Michael, but he doesn't have the same coldness that Michael has. Char may have been trying to play the good guy in Zeta, but he still can't truly feel for anyone and knows it. Tom just doesn't show that to me.

Michael, easily. Steve Blum's take doesn't sound quite right, and Tom Edwards sounds flat and dull.

I don't know who the other person in Tom Edward's clip is but that is some of the flattest acting I've EVER heard. Anyway, I voted for Michael Kopsa.

'I find it weird that they messed on Zeta Gundam but they did so well on G Gundam.'

Wrong. Blue Water don't produce good dubs. Blue Water and good dubs are best mutually exclusive.

@AntiSabat666 Their anime dubs might not be the greatest quality, but their video game dubs, mostly Megaman, are outstanding and there are some Blue Water actors I really like such as Dave Pettitt and Roger Rhodes.

@AntiSabat666 I liked G Gundam. Zeta on the other hand was crap. How do people who are paid to voice act have such a weak grasp on the concept of acting?
said at 10:43 AM on Mon Mar 17 2014
@Damolisher It's a good thing that they got better chances to voice their characters in the DW:G games. At least, IMO.

@Fulgore2005 I agree. The Zeta Characters that had their VAs return sounded great.
