I've been really enjoying his Future Trunks so far in the Goku Black arc of Dragon Ball Super of what's aired thus far on Toonami, sure the voice is still raspy but it feel it's been toned down a bit from the recent games. Eric still nails the earnest yet determined boy from the bad future well.

It was pretty surprising yet not surprising at the same time for him to take on the role of Phoenix Wright in the Funimation dub of the anime, I think he was a fan favourite casting choice for the role so seeing it finally happen was kinda neat.

Happy Birthday Eric Vale!

Happy Birthday Eric. Vale! And congrats on Dragon Ball Super as Future Trunks!

Happy Birthday, Eric Vale! All's I want to say here really is that he usually brings much in the way of confidence, charisma, and depth with the roles he's been given over the years; plus he has a nice surname. My favorite Vale performances for the time being are Casshern, Justin Law, Tomura Shigaraki, Solf J. Kimblee, Future Trunks, the World Martial Arts Tournament Announcer, Kanta Mizuno/Desert Punk, Prince, Rando, Sakyo, America, Canada, Maeda Keiji, Huey Laforet, Tsunenaga Tamaki, and Arystar Krory.

I didn't realize how many roles I like that this guy voices. I thought my first experience liking his voice was Sanji in one piece nut he voiced trunks which was my favorite character in my favorite show as a kid. His range surprises me and the sheer number of characters he's played that I like is astonishing. One of my favorite voice actors.

Trunks is my favorite roles,but Eric has really impressed me with his villainous roles like Rando,Solf,Sakyio and Kuro. He also can play smart characters like Sugata in Heaven's lost property,Antiheros like Hermit in Kenichi,Punks like Justin Law in Soul Eater and of course the World Tournament announcer in Dragon Ball. Eric is so talented and I feel like he is almost always perfectly cast

One of my favorite role's Eric has done is the World Tournament Announcer. There's such an infectious enthusiasm in his play-by-play commentary; you really believe that this guy's a passionate martial arts fan with years of ringside experience. It's also impressive that Eric has consistently voiced the character in pretty much all Dragon Ball-related media.

In Ultimate Otaku Teacher, I disliked his Hell Gates to be honest. I felt Austin Tindle would have been a better choice for that role. Considering the fact that he and Alexis Tipton have some history. Besides when I think about it, he has a deeper voice that sounds more like a badass teen.

I like this guy, as Trunks. I just do not like him for Hell Gates.

Happy Birthday Eric Vale!

He's one of FUNimation's coolest sounding VA's they have, he brings a lot of confidence to his roles.

Future Trunks is easily his best role ever. He nailed him in just about every way and the rasp he has in his voice is the icing on the cake.

Kasper Hekmatyar is a very close second for favourite role of his, I also really liked him as Solf J. Kimblee, Loke/Leo, America, Canada, Eishiro Sugata, Justin Law, Prince and Huey Laforet.

I also loved his work on Yu Yu Hakusho as the sociopathic Sakyo and Rando. It's amusing how earlier on in his career he had been playing against type with roles like that.

He was also excellent as Kazuma, Kakizaki, Yukitaka Akiha, Toru Suzushima and Kou Kimijima.

I haven't seen The Boy and the Beast but I'm sure he did an excellent job voicing in it, I'll check it out the first chance I get.

Anyways Happy Birthday Eric Vale!
