EDITOR'S OPINIONWell folks time to start another VC section and this time its for the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise. Well we shall start this off with the hero of the Gundam Wing series named well... Heero.
In the English dub of Gundam Wing he is voiced by VA Mark Hildreth. While the English dub of the series is generally quite renowned the reaction towards Mark Hildreth's performance as Heero had a bit more... divisive reaction to it. But personally I always did liked Mark Hildreth's performance as Heero and in both voice and performance its one of the reasons why I have always deemed the Gundam Wing English dub to be such a classic.
In the Dynasty Warriors Gundam series Ocean Group VA Louis Chirillo. I admit I did find this casting to be a bit surprising but this worked out fairly well. While you certainly can tell the difference Louis did give it a good shot to deliver a good performance in spirit of Mark's handiwork, while its not AS good as Mark Hildreth's work this works pretty well too.
Overall I liked them both but I am certainly going for Mark Hildreth here.
(Note: Brian Drummond of all people gets to take over the role of Heero in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 which is rather strange since Brian is still voicing Millardo/Zechs as well in that game. As much as I normally adore Brian's work its really strange to hear him as Heero as his voice for the role is a higher version of his Millardo/Zechs voice. While I suppose Brian's work as Heero is decent by its own merits but the idea of casting Brian as Heero is awkwardly ironic in which I would rank him last here.)
