EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Xenosaga VC section we take a look at this Combat Cyborg whom is Ziggurat 8 or mainly known as... ZIGGY! In the Xenosaga Trilogy Ziggy was one of the characters whom has had the same English VA throughout the whole trilogy and in this case its none other than Richard Epcar. Richard was pretty much a perfect choice for Ziggurat 8 as his deep and stoic voice was very suiting for this cyborg soldier. Richard's performance was also very suiting for the role here as it not only fits how stoic Ziggy but how genuinely caring he can be as well. So in another words Richard's work as Ziggy is a fine example of his work and one of the better performances in the Xenosaga games.
In the English dub of the Xenosaga Anime from the now late ADV, Jason Douglas gets to take over the role of Ziggy. Jason's voice for the role is not terrible but it is a little too light for the role, granted he makes a decent attempt at trying to sound stoic but still his voice should've been a bit deeper. Though to be fair Jason does make a good attempt in his performance to sound suitably stoic enough for the role though so its not a bad performance especially when viewed by its own merits though. So in other words while Jason's work as Ziggy is not one of his better performances its still a pretty good one nevertheless. Overall I am clearly going with Richard Epcar the most here with Jason Douglas at an okay second.
