Voice Compare » Xenosaga » Jin Uzuki
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Jin Uzuki with sound clips and images.
Jin Uzuki is a prominent secondary protagonist in the Xenosaga Game Series in which like the majority of the cast he made his debut in the first game of the series. Jin is known as a calm and composed intellectual whom was once a Captain in the Galaxy Federation Special Forces Intelligence Division (but left after the Militian Conflict) but is currently the owner of a antique bookstore in the outskirts of Second Miltia's Capital. Jin is the older brother of Shion Uzuki (whom she has issues with due to their past but he does care for here) and Margulis is an arch rival/enemy of his and he also has a bit of a history with Margulis' second in command Pellegri. While Jin normally does have a prominent role in the games in the first episode he had a bit role at which he only appeared in a couple of scenes.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Xenosaga VC section we take a look at Shion's older brother... JIN UZUKI! Lets begin shall we?
Crispin Freeman- Okay I understand that Crispin was busy enough voicing Albedo and Gaignun but still his somewhat nasally higher voice does seem a bit odd for the role here to put it mildly. But to be fair at least Crispin's performance for the role was pretty good for the role though as it does suit Jin's brotherly persona pretty well.
Michael Gough- Now Michael's voice and performance for the role was a lot more natural for the role that much I will already say. But still when its in Jin's serious moments or his more comical ones Michael's overall voicework on the role was very fitting and a fine example of his work. (Though the fact that Michael has voiced the role for the longest amount of time does help.)
Christopher Ayres- Christopher's work on this role was also very good and natural as well, granted he seems to be playing the role a bit softer than what Michael did but its still all good anyways. However Christopher does have the disadvantage that Jin doesn't have as many lines in the show as he did in the games lets just say. But other than that Christopher's work on the role was a good effort and a pretty good example of his voice work in general.
Overall I am clearly going with Michael Gough at 1st place, Christopher Ayres at a good second and Crispin Freeman at an okay third.
