EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Sengoku Basara VC section we have a little something for this "Invincible" man in the Uesugi Army... NAOE KANETSUGU! In the Sengoku Basara anime, Naoe occasionally appeared and was voiced by Jim Johnson. I admit that the fact that Jim's voice for the role was slightly deep did feel a little strange at first but it did kind of grow on me pretty quickly (I suppose Jim was trying to make Naoe sound manly which is not a bad idea but it did seem a little strange at first). Jim does a pretty good job playing Naoe as the Bombastic comic relief that he is so its a pretty good example of the voice work in the anime.
For the 3rd Sengoku Basara game, Tony Oliver gets to play the role of Naoe here. Now Tony's voice for the role felt very natural as it does suit someone whom tries to be a noble powerful warrior even though he is goofy comic relief and of course I could say the same thing about his performance. While Naoe only appears briefly Tony's performance for the role was very suiting and felt a bit more memorable, as it is a good example of his work and a fine example of the voice work in the game. Overall both of these guys are good as Naoe but I am clearly going for Tony Oliver here.
