His performance as Shay Obsidian was just shocking to me since this is a 4K dub and they're not exactly known for having the best dubs but Matt completely knocked it outta the park (also helps is that he's an incredibly big fan of Yu-Gi-Oh).

It's great that he's with FUNi now.

Matt great as Hiro, Shay Obsidian, and Kazuya Kujo

I am enjoying his Hiro in "Darling in the Franxx". What I find funny is that while Hiro is paired with Zero Two, Matt has been dating Brittney "Ichigo" Lauda for over 7 years now. Sly dog.

Happy belated Birthday Matt Shipman! His work as Shay Obsidian in Arc-V is nothing short of incredible. It's unironically one of the best performances I've ever heard in anime dubbing, and it's in a 4KMEDIA dub of all things XD

(Then again, the voice direction for Arc-V's english dub IS actually fairly solid overall)

Happy Birthday Matt Shipman! The Anime Husband of Brittany Lauda! Amazing work as Kazuya Kujou in Gosick! And welcome to Hyoka as well!

Matt Shipman is hands down the biggest highlight of the Arc-V dub. His performance is fantastic, and some of the strongest acting I've heard in a Yu-Gi-Oh! dub yet. I also love that he's a genuine fan of the Yugioh franchise. (he even watches the Japanese version!)

Hopefully he continues to get more and more roles. I'd love to see him become a big name in the New York voice acting scene.

I can't stand the Arc V dub, and even I agree with this, his performance really stands out to me as the character- it's the only dub voice I generally liked (save for recurring characters from previous Yu-Gi-Oh Series) in what little I've seen of it.

@WrightWay I think it helps that Matt understands his character better, thanks to watching the Japanese version. I'm honestly impressed he's able to deliver as impressive of a performance as he has despite the dub's issues. If he's that good in an edited dub, just imagine an uncut dub!

Very true. Apparently, Matt Shipman has gotten some work with FUNimation as of late, too, interested to hear more from him.

@WrightWay I saw that! I'm excited to see he's branching out.

I wonder what the odds of Matt playing Yusaku in VRains eventual dub are?

@1dbad He definitely is rather great. Him and Billy Bob Thompson as Akaba are really good voices I feel.

@HylianBelmont Agreed. They're two of the biggest highlights of the Arc-V dub, IMO.
