Today on the Sengoku Basara VC section we have the first VC for a male character in the series and it shall be for that hot-blooded red-coated soldier... SANADA YUKIMURA! In the original Sengoku Basara game for the PS2 it was renamed Devil Kings in the US and Sanada had a slightly odd name change to Scorpio and was voiced by Andrew Francis. I have heard that the idea of casting Andrew in this role is not quite popular but to me I didn't think Andrew is all that bad. Actually to be honest I thought his performance was actually pretty good in which it did work with Sanada/Scorpio's hot-blooded personality. Okay its probably not one of Andrew's best but its a good example of his work and the voice acting in Devil Kings.

However in the 3rd Sengoku Basara game (and the anime) Johnny Yong Bosch takes over the role and I have to say its a slight surprise here. Oh sure Johnny's voice for the role is not surprising but as for his performance well I am aware that Sanada has a very hot-blooded personality but man is Johnny Yong Bosch REALLY trying to go for a hot-blooded performance here... Don't get me wrong I am perfectly aware that Bosch can give an energetic performance but still. Though in some cases it does kind of sound like Bosch can be trying a little too hard at sounding hot-blooded here. However I am not calling Bosch's performance bad here but still he definitely made an effort here and it is a good example on how the voice acting performance can be an interesting change of pace for a VA. Overall neither one are truly perfect for the role here but they both did pretty well in their own way.

Definitely Johnny: that's exactly the voice I'd imagine a warrior would have.

Andrew sounds like he's doing his Gil voice from Johnny Test: too surfer dude-ish for me.

JYB without a doubt. He's excellent as the hot-blooded warrior.

JYB voice reminds me of his Warriors Orochi Yukimura which gives me unpleasant memories so I'm taking Andrew Francis

As over-exposed as JYB is, there are some roles that he just does too well. This being one of them.
