As in Round 1, Round 2 once again tasks you with providing your take on already established characters. However, these are secondary characters, so you should have less trouble with having an existing voice in your head.
This time we have provided you with slightly longer lines which should allow you to better show off your acting range and your ability to emote. And based on your feedback, we've added scene set-ups and you now have more choices.
Not only that, but we have switched genres on you and plunged you into the world of Anime. Get ready for some loud over-the-top acting ... but we know guys will make it sound much more believable :) Good Luck!!

5 Finalists with the most votes will move onto Round 3.
3 Finalists from the remaining group will be selected by the Judges' to move on.
3 Finalists
will be eliminated.

Tien Shinhan

(Even knowing he can't beat the enemy, Tien still fights to buy time for his friends)
Line 1:
"I might just be a pothole in the road to you big guy, but it's going to be one heck of a deep pothole! Tri-beam!!"


(Despite the strength and power of his friends, Tien is convinced that their enemy, the androids, are much more powerful)
Line 2:
"Trunks, you were able to take out Frieza singlehandedly. You're one of the strongest people I've ever met, but those androids tossed you aside as though you were nothing. Goku is strong, but in all honesty, I don't see how he can be that much stronger than Trunks or Vegeta. And if that's the case, we're done for."


(Tien helps his friends defend the Earth against invading alien warriors)
Line 3: (Choice)
"I'll go first. I'm not afraid of these little creeps. It'll be a good warm up. (After defeating the minions, Tien is easily beaten by a big alien warrior. With his final strength, he makes the effort for one last fight) Looks like I'm back in the saddle! What luck! This three-eyed cowboy's going out for one last ride!"


(Disgusted that a former enemy and invader of Earth is now living with his friends)
Line 4: (Choice)
"Vegeta! I didn't realize you were going to be here too! (is replied with "is that okay?") As a matter of fact, it isn't. I still haven't forgotten what happened the last time we met. You disgust me. How can you stomach him Yamcha."


(Angered by a fellow warrior's arrogance in not understanding that their enemy is extremely powerful)
Line 5: (Choice)
"You fool! While you were in that room, Cell swallowed up Android 17 and transformed, so don't try to tell us you can handle it. You don't even know what you're up against."

<br>
Raditz

(Knowing he is a natural fighter, Raditz tries to convince his brother to join an evil cause)
Line 1:
"I see the fire in your eyes brother. You should come with us. It's in your blood, you love to fight."


(Raditz is disappointed that his brother has forgotten his roots and not carried out his mission to destroy the Earth)
Line 2:
"Have you forgotten your pride Kakarot. We are Saiyans, the mightiest warriors in the universe. I can still remember the day that we first sent you to this planet as an infant. We had high hopes for you then Kakarot, why have you not carried out your mission? Kakarot!"


(Explaining to humans he just met that he has come to Earth to rule over its inhabitants)
Line 3: (Choice)
"Well, I wasn't expecting to give a history lesson when I came here today, but alright, I'll tell you everything. After all, you are going to be working for me from now on and I do like my subordinates to be well informed."


(Raditz is angered that his brother has refused to join him to take over the Earth)
Line 4: (Choice)
"Alright then, you can have it your way Kakarot. I didn't come here to kill you, but it seems you have left me no choice. It's too bad little brother. I do think you would have found the life of a Saiyan to be quite invigorating."


(Raditz is arrogantly confident that his opponent is no match for his power)
Line 5: (Choice)
"Oh, you'd like that, wouldn't you? (Raditz checks his scouter) Power level three hundred and twenty two. I can tell you're not from this planet, but you'd be a fool to attack me...with such an insufficient power. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha."

<br>
Android 18

(Aternate Timeline Android 18 is angered by how confident her hero opponent is about defeating her and her brother)
Line 1:
"Gosh, how rude. He is such an arrogant little punk. Man, that's it. I want him dead! It's a matter of principle."


(Confused and angered at her collegue's lack of reaction and emotion to the fact that her brother was just killed)
Line 2:
"Oh, great. I think you're starting to malfunction. All you've been doing is staring at these birds all day long. What do you see in those things anyway? Don't you care that Cell's going to suck me up like he did 17? Don't you care that he's going to kill you?"


(Patronizing her opponent after seeing how well he can actually fight)
Line 3: (Choice)
"Yes, well. Looks aren't everything. You fight quite well for being such a little man. It's impressive. Even if you are a Saiyan."


(On their way to kill Goku, Android 18 is confused why her colleague Android 16 is so relaxed and carefree)
Line 4: (Choice)
"I don't understand how 16 can be so calm right now. It's been hours since he opened his eyes let alone said anything. You'd think that he would be excited that we're on our way to Goku's house, but instead he just sits there like a rock."


(Aternate Timeline Android 18 shows her blatant disregard for human life and her impatience for boredom)
Line 5: (Choice)
"Come on, lets get out of here. All the humans are dead. The fun part's over. I don't wanna sit around here and watch you shoot buildings all day, it's boring."

<br>
Videl

(With an attitude, Videl tries to scare the local crime fighter)
Line 1:
"Hey, guess what's gonna happen when they arrest you. The first thing they'll do is take that trash can off your head and reveal your true identity."


(Videl tries to prove that she is a daughter worthy of her father's great fighting reputation)
Line 2:
"I'm like a maid. I go wherever the filth is and I clean it up. My father's a busy man. If you wanna challenge him, you're gonna have to get through me first."


(Still confident about her father's fighting ability, Videl shows uncertainly after hearing about his opponent)
Line 3: (Choice)
"You're a brilliant fighter dad. You can definitely win at the tournament again, but I heard that the guy who won before you is extremely powerful."


(After seeing her friend fight, Videl realizes he isn't the local crime fighter)
Line 4: (Choice)
"I was convinced of it until I saw you fight ... eh (in response to her friends poor fighting). Please don't take on any more criminals, Gohan. Sorry, but you don't have what it takes. But you sure know how to take a punch in the face."


(Videl is excited that she'll be fighting a worthy opponent)
Line 5: (Choice)
"Wow, this is gonna be great. What a terrific match. The former champion's daughter fighting the former champion's son. Doesn't that sound exciting to you?"

Overall, a standout performance. The energetic acting one expects in DBZ was all there. The strong and slightly gravelly voice reminded me a lot of Chris Cason's version of Tien in the Funimation dub.

Like Rev, this definitely fit the Anime ‘overacting’ genre! The difference to me was that all three of your lines really delivered the ‘acting’ part of the assignment equally. Great job with the inflections and making this character come to life!

I really like your take on the first line, all exhausted and on your last legs. Very real and was unexpected. The third line also had good expressive acting. The second line was solid but didn't really stand out.

Agrees (8)  Disagrees (0)
OptimusSolo

Definitely had that Anime/DragonBall feel to it! Second line sounded like you were reading slightly though and not acting as much as you usually do. The first line was fantastic but I don’t feel the others quite lived up to it. Still very solid job!

You had a nice take here. I felt however it lacked the kind of strained tones that are prominent in DBZ. It sounds a little too calm and not more rushed like typical anime' fighting shows.

Interesting take on the voice and accent. It had a royalty feel to it, which I'll give points for since he works for Prince Vegeta. Though I don't think it fit the character. The voice sounded more commanding than threatening.

Agrees (3)  Disagrees (2)
OptimusSolo

Raditz is a ruthless warrior but that is not conveyed in this performance. Lines play more like they’d fit a wicked vizier or some other member of the nobility. Accent just doesn’t seem to fit for me either. The voice kind of went in and out as well.

Agrees (3)  Disagrees (3)
SCP21

It was good but seems too accented. It should have been a little deeper, gruff & more warrior like. Think military grunt almost. Another thing would be almost a little slower portrayal.

A great acting performance and while I actually love the old raspy voice, I'm sad to say it just didn't match Raditz. It would've been perfect for like a senior character.

The voice does have a gruff sound that I could picture for this character and he has that soft spoken tone that is in the description. You never really showed his more powerful/angry side though you kept it all subdued. Great laugh at the end though!

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (0)

Sounds too G1 Megatron-ish and almost like an old man. Not bad in being gruff and more dark as he should be. I think the lines could have been delivered a little faster though.

As always, your acting just comes off so naturally. The subtleties in the way you portrayed her sass were great. My only nitpick, I was expecting big attitude from the "get through me first" part.

Agrees (7)  Disagrees (1)
OptimusSolo

Your voice is so easy to listen to & has such a natural tone. You could have chosen a third line that would have better shown your range of emotions and it seems that you mispronounced ‘tournament’ which could have easily been fixed. Good job though.

Nice play on the character. Innocent yet snooty. Nice work with line delivery and emotions. I think this one could have had a little more depth in the voice to show more emotion but it was still good.

Love the hint of boyish raspiness in the voice one hears from anime boys. Strong delivery and attitude for the character. I thought the "extremely powerful" part was a perfect contrast, showing her true concern for her dad.

Agrees (10)  Disagrees (0)
OptimusSolo

It sounded like you were rushing just a tad bit and there were times where I thought the voice was maybe a slight bit too young for this character. Overall though, what makes you great is your constant spot on inflections and the acting.

Agrees (9)  Disagrees (1)

I liked the play on the words. Had the good emotions and inflections as well as added that bit of an edginess to the character that it needed. Nice work in that 3rd line especially.

Effortless performance once again and bringing the character to life. I felt the threatening calm in his delivery, so cocky but could snap at any time.

Agrees (14)  Disagrees (0)

First line had a minor error with the ‘f’ in ‘fight’ but real minor. You did a great job of showing both the soft spoken side as well as the ruthless side. This one also fits the ‘look’ of the character a little better than the others who chose him.

Agrees (15)  Disagrees (1)
SCP21

I loved the feeling in here. Just the right type of voice chosen here. Could have added a slight gravel/growl to him but it picked up in Lines 2 & 3. Definitely could see this being used!

The acting was solid and the voice fit Android 18 pretty well. However, the lines were delivered a little too quickly, especially the third line. There was never really a chance to feel the emotion of the character.

OptimusSolo

Can’t tell if the audio issues are due to equipment or mic skills on this one. Can’t put my finger on why exactly but it just didn’t work for me. The voice could have worked for this character but something in the delivery just didn’t cut it sorry.

Agrees (3)  Disagrees (1)
SCP21

It was overall good. However I can't put my finger on it but it lacked something. Maybe it was the pitch of the voice that could have been a little lower. Good read, too many mic sounds and just wasn't a strong choice here.

Your ‘voice’ fit the character the most out of our submissions. Not sure why everyone chose that third line, I definitely wouldn’t have. However, the tomboyish yet surrounded by fame vibe could def be heard here and I think you nailed the age.

I definitely heard the anime read here. There was the right type of attitude as well with the emotions flaring. It felt right hearing your voice in this role. Definite fit.

I really liked the short breaths after most words, as it showed what little patience Android 18 has and how easily bored she gets. The acting was solid overall, except maybe the second half of the first line where it felt a little overacted.

Agrees (3)  Disagrees (0)
OptimusSolo

Your portrayal definitely had the feel & vibe of an android, so well done in capturing that. However, in doing so it may have been sort of a double edged sword making some parts of a couple lines sound more like reading and less like acting.

Agrees (5)  Disagrees (0)
SCP21

I felt the right vibes in some places in lines 1 & 3. One thing that got a little distracting was the breathing which shouldn't be here. The voice age was good but the character showed too much emotion. Should be more flat.

I love the hint of Chris Sabat's Vegeta in your version of Raditz. The first and third lines captured his cockiness and threatening nature the most. The second line I thought sounded more out of desperation, rather than anger.

Agrees (7)  Disagrees (1)

Lines seemed very rushed which has never been a problem for you before. Voice fits the character well. Not sure on how you ended line 2. Good laugh at end of line 3. Minor inconsistencies between the lines in the sound of the voice but still solid overall

Lines had a good tone for them and I think you fit the character. The gruffness was good as well. However the lines seemed a bit too fast.
