Well 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.)

I really can't believe Mark got that much criticism by fans of the Japanese version of Gundam Wing. True I've never really watched the Japanese version, but I never thought Mark's performance as Heero in the English dub was that "robotic".

If they ever make an anime adaptation of Glory of the Losers (which I'd really like to see), I sure hope they get the same cast for the English dub, cause I really can't imagine anyone else voicing the cast in English. Plus, it would probably give Mark a chance to do a "more accurate" dubbing of Heero's voice. I know Ocean Studios isn't really associated with the Gundam franchise anymore, but I'd still like them to be contacted if Glory of the Losers does get turned into an anime.

Mark Hildreth's the best here and it's a real shame that the negative fan reception caused him to quit working for the franchise because I think he would have been great in these kind of roles.

Louis Chrillo's a decent impersonation and Brian Drummond's pretty weak.

I'll go with Mark Hildreth. He's the one I'm used to and I thought his voice was cool for Heero. Louis and Brian sound alright. I got nothing bad to say about them.

I don't know why so many fans hated on Hildreth's performance (causing him to swear off Gundam), 'cause I think he sounds perfect for how the character is. Louis Chirillo is also good, but a bit older sounding. Brian Drummond should not have even voiced Heero since he only did 'cause Hildreth refused to come back to this franchise...but he's okay, I guess.

@Galactic_Cyrus According to a convention video someone posted in another comment Mark was willing to return for Dynasty Warriors if Ocean had contacted him.

@Galactic_Cyrus I believe people hated Hildreth because he was too robotic in the role, while Hikaru Midorikawa was more subdued in the part.

Mark Hildreth is excellent as Heero. As PurpleWarrior said, his performance is age appropriate, and the voice itself is actually very cool too.

@Nightmare Crusher

Actually you are wrong. I dont know where you got your information from. As you will see in the video below, Mark states they never asked him to play Heero again and that is why he has not reprised his role. If you people want him back complain and e-mail to Bandai-Namco games about it.
Watch for about 10-20 seconds to hear his answer.

@gundamzzz You do know that you can directly reply to comments, right? Anyway, thanks for correcting me. I guess Ocean was just being cheap.

The reason Mark never played Heero again was because the director had him start out as very monotone and he got so many fans complaining about it being HIS fault that he decided to never work on anything Gundam related ever again.
