Young Roronoa Zoro / Zolo

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Young Roronoa Zoro / Zolo with sound clips and images.
Franchise: One Piece

I did a VC for the adult version of the character a long time ago but at last I present the Young Roronoa Zoro!

He was first voiced in the Odex English dub of the One Piece anime. At the moment I'm not sure which VA is was so until I have some confirmation the clip will remain attached with "Unknown Voice Actor".

In the 4Kids English dub of the One Piece anime he was called Zolo and was voiced by Andrew Rannells.

In the Funimation English dub Young Zoro is voiced by Brina Palencia.

For the English version of the One Piece video game Unlimited Cruise he is voiced by Aaron Dismuke.

*Cynthia Cranz is credited as Young Zoro in episode 2 of the Funimation dub but it was just grunts and yells in a flashback. There was no actual dialogue.

Brina Palencia fits very well as the younger version of Zoro and Aaron Dismuke also fits too though you can hear he was definitely starting to go through puberty at this point

The UVA sounds a little too girly and Andrew Rannells is just miscast. Way too hard to take seriously when he's using his Noah Kaiba voice making the character sound like a total stuck up brat. Very poor voice casting and directing on 4Kids's take, what were they thinking?

1. Brina Palencia - She sounds very fitting as Zoro's younger self honestly, and most certainly acts the part the best.

2. Aaron Dismuke - He also does a very nice take! Love his tone in particular.

3. Unknown VA - Easily one of the best performances I've ever heard from an Odex dub honestly, definitely deserves third place here IMO!

4. Andrew Rannells - I honestly love his young boy voice... just not for this role however. Far too annoying IMO.

Brina is the best. Aaron is good too, and I hope that he gets another role in OP in the the future.

I wasn't sure about Brina at first, but she won me over with her performance. Definitely the best of the bunch.

The Unknown Voice Actor is surprisingly good for an Odex performance. Doesn't beat Brina, but not far behind.

As far as males voicing the role goes, Aaron Dismuke is the clear winner. I actually like his tone best for young Zoro, but his acting (while decent) isn't as impressive.

Andrew was a poor choice for the part. His performance makes Zoro come across far too bratty.

Brina I would say edges it.

Yeah i'll be on the same boat that i would vote for Brina Palencia, because she makes a better boy voice and sounding more emotional than Andrew Rannells and Unknown Voice Actress (Yes calling her Unknown Voice Actoress because don't have any clue who that is) combined, except for Aaron Dismuke's take.

Speaking of Aaron Dismuke's take, i feel like he did a good work to make Young Zoro boy sounding even though he as few said a older alphonse elric, but not as kid sounding as Brina did, so i'll put him in Second.

Not gonna talk about these two, cause they sound really off putting and not having more material to work with, but Unknown Voice Actress sounds more obnoxious and forced, but at least more kid sounding than Andrews.

For my results i did rank for either one of these voice actors or actress:

Rank #1) Brina Palencia

Rank #2) Aaron Dismuke

Rank #3) Unknown Voice Actress (From Odex)

Rank #4) Andrew Rannells

@SteelEthlan Unknown Voice Actress on the parentheses part is what I meant.

Everyone was terrible except for Brina, she was freakin great, Aaron Dismuke was decent. I grimmace when I hear those other voices.

I liked Brina's better since it better represents how Zoro was feeling. The others were more... ehh.

Brina did it best. Aaron's good too, but was clearly starting his puberty then. The UVA is waaay to high pitched and girly sounding. And Andrew Rannells using his Noah Kaiba voice makes Zoro sound like a total obnoxious brat. WTF were 4Kids thinking with that casting?

@Galactic_Cyrus My sentiments exactly.

I was excited when I heard Aaron in the game, because I really wanted to see how he'd handle it in the actual show....buuuut I was bummed it wasn't him. But Brina rocked it. Especially that scene where Zoro is crying while training and hits the training posts until they break. She rocked it.

Brina's the best, while Aaron and surprisingly the unknown were pretty good too. Andrew was mis-cast, it's hard to take his version seriously.

They all work well in their own ways, but from these, I think I like Brina the best.
said at 2:59 PM on Tue Sep 11 2012
That's not brina Palencia, That's Colleen Clinkenbeard. ANd i loved the voice of Aaron.

@Gekko_Amario No that's Brina alright

@Gekko_Amario The credits don't lie. It's Brina.

1. Brina Palencia - She always doing a good job with young boys and Zoro at a young age is no exception
2. Aaron Dismuke - While it sounds like an older Alphonse Elric it's more tolerable
3. Unknown VA - Extremely forced and sounds like she's screaming
4. Andrew Rannells - Miscast hands down 4Kids always messes up making Luffy sound like a young 5 year old, and making young Zoro sound like a 8 year old

This was one of Brina's best roles IMO
She really can do the young boy voice and not overdo it

The Unknown VA, was it from Funi Dub, because the young zoro in the earlier episode was different than the later episodes. It Sounded like Colleen Clinkenbeard

@stocko No, this one is from the Odex dub that aired in Singapore. I think it could be Andrea Kwan, but don't quote me on that.
said at 1:27 AM on Wed Oct 12 2011
@NCZ nope. Andrea Kwan works for HongKong/Animax Dubs. Not ODex.

@shadee88 Animax also operates in Singapore. Plus, I don't think voice actors have to work exclusively for one company.
said at 11:22 PM on Sun Dec 30 2012
@NCZ The Odex dub was working with a very small talent pool, and at that point in the series, this voice was likely either Chio Su-Ping (who voiced Koby) or Alison Lester (who voiced Nami).
