Round 1 - Theme: Street Fighter

Share/Save/Bookmark


All members of BTVA are welcome to submit a performance for voice acting practice or just for fun! See below for details.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!
Welcome to Round 1, Finalists. To get your feet wet in these finals, we're going to look to the recently rejuvenated Street Fighter franchise. Best known as a popular fighting video game, voice acting isn't really the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks of Street Fighter. These fighters aren't just about punches, kicks and fireballs. They have character and personality. Each has their strengths and powers, but also struggles and weaknesses. Which such depths, these fighters deserve some voice acting performances to match.

Finalists. Your mission is to select one character below and perform the dialogue provided. There are character descriptions for each fighter to give you an idea on who you should be embodying in your voice acting. As always, the believability of your acting is what will be judged. But don't forget to pick a voice that suits the character as well as conveys the emotion that you interpret from the dialogue.

Oh, and you guys know how Kyle Hebert will be a Special Guest Judge for one of the rounds? Well, guess what? He'll be a guest judge on this round!!! And how fitting given Kyle has been the voice of Ryu in the most recent Street Fighter titles.
Kyle will be giving individual feedback for each of the Finalists' performances.

Good luck!

Ryu

(Explains the purpose of his headband)
Line 1:
"Whenever I tie this on. I always ask my body a question. Am I worthy of this fight?"


(Concerned that the dark Hadou will overpower him)
Line 2:
"Kill me. If ... if I'm possessed by the dark Hadou, and can't break free. Ken, I want you to be the one to do it."


(His best friend Ken has been brain-washed and is attacking him)
Line 3:
"Take a good long look at me damn it! Come on! This is a real fight! Tell me who I am!"


(Feels a huge pain in his body from the growth of the Hadou power within him)
Line 4: (Choice)
"I don't think I've felt anything like this before. It's like raw energy growing in the center of my stomach and any second it's going to burst."


Line 5: (Choice)
"Didn't you say you should fight if you were strong? *pause* Well, I'm not strong. That's why I fight. I fight myself. Against myself."

Ryu is best described as a wandering warrior. He is a quiet, serious and humble man, and a kind heart. He travels the globe and is in constant training, to master his own fighting style, Hadou. But in his drive to better himself, there is a darkness in Ryu, culminating from the dark side of his Hadou. He constantly fights to supress it, for if it overcomes him, he will do whatever it takes to win and be the best, no matter the cost.
Dhalsim

Line 1:
"The power I possess is divine. It is not for mortal men to use for their own selfish desires."


(Explains to his new guests his reasoning for believing they always try to solve problems with violence)
Line 2:
"THIS is why I call the two of you beasts. Your violence will only bring harm to the villagers behind you."


(Has paralyzed one attacker of his village and explains his technique as he paralyzes another)
Line 3:
"He hears but he cannot obey, because I have stopped the flow of Chi in his body. A most effective attack. Taste now the terror of total paralysis."


Line 4: (Choice)
"Hear me, Agni, God of Fire. Watch over me as I in turn watch over those I love. Grant me the strength to vanquish evil."


Line 5: (Choice)
"You are the type who when you see your prize attack and think nothing beyond your opponent's defeat. For this reason I call your methods bestial."

Dhalsim is a wise and powerful mystic, who has mastered the art of Yoga and can also manipulate fire with his breath. Dhalsim is generally a pacifist, and while he fought in a tournament to raise money for his village, he will normally only fight to protect those around him.
Chun-Li

Line 1:
"Considering S.I.N.'s connections to Shadaloo, there's a good chance I could find some clues about my father."


Line 2:
"These children ... they're innocent! How could you?! Your acts are unforgivable, Bison."


(Looks at a photo of her deceased father)
Line 3:
"Please keep an eye on me, father. I promise I'll put an end to their evil plans. I'll make sure no one else ever has to go through what I did."


Line 4: (Choice)
"You can't conduct an investigation by yourself. You're putting personal revenge in front of common sense and duty to your country."


(Has retired from Interpol)
Line 5: (Choice)
"I enjoy the freedom. The peace. All that fighting. Those days seem like a dream to me now. When I open my eyes, the images disappear. All those memories."

Chun-Li is an undercover Interpol agent, trained in martial arts and has a great sense of duty. Her father was killed by the head of the criminal organization of Shadaloo, M. Bison. So Chun-Li fights to avenge the death of her father, take down Shadaloo and bring Bison to justice, after which she would like to live and simple and normal life.
Rose

Line 1:
"I seek only to protect this world. What happens to me is of little consequence."


(Knowing that she shares her soul with the evil M. Bison, Rose talks to herself about her power)
Line 2:
"Soul Power is the one weapon you cannot control. It is your weakness. And it will be your undoing."


(Speaks to the good and kind Ryu about the choice he will soon have to make)
Line 3:
"You will soon meet someone who will shape your destiny. And through that meeting, you will change. Will you grasp the light? Or be swallowed by darkness?"


(Rose reads the fortune of who can defeat the evil M. Bison)
Line 4: (Choice)
"No matter how many times I read the future, the answer is always the same. Only the fool card can stand up to him ... the card of reckless heroism."


Line 5: (Choice)
"I may be able to stop him temporarily, but i simply cannot destroy him. For I hold the same power in me that Bison does."

Rose is a mystic fortune teller who possesses a unique ability known as Soul Power. In her quest to destroy M. Bison, an international criminal (who possesses corrupt Soul Power) who killed Rose's master and slaughtered her village, she discovered that her and Bison shared the same soul. Rose fights to defeat Bison and the evil power within him.

You obviously were one of our strongest Auditions but something about your recording quality really distracted me here. Not sure if its the equipment, the volume levels, how close you are to the mic or what.

NCZ

While your voice fit the character, some lines were a bit underdone. Line 2, for example, picked up at the end. I can see where this is coming from, as Chun Li is pretty reserved, but it’s something to watch for. You have potential, so keep at it.

A lot of great Ryu submissions in this round. I had you 4th among them. Your tone quality and clarity in your voice is your strength. Perhaps work a bit on the pacing and phrasing so it doesnt sound choppy though.

Line 2 managed to sound both uneasy and confident, so props there. While the first line sounded a little too narrator-like, the rest was great. Keep it up!

The accent was a bit much for me here, it distracted me from the overall performance. Also, I think a bit of the 'power' of the character was lost with it.

Agrees (6)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

The accent was kinda cool but a bit exaggerated; detracted a little from performance. I'd recommend that you try and focus more on the acting than the accent. Great amount of energy, though a bit youthful for an aged character like Dhalsim.

Your deep voice fit Ryu well, and each line sounded believable. Lines 2 and 3 were the strongest, capturing the emotional nuances. One suggestion is for a shorter pause between "it's going to burst" and the last grunt in line 4. Otherwise, excellent job!

Really liked your accent; sounded believable and didn’t take anything away. Line 4 deviated a bit from the voice you’d created over the past few lines, so that could’ve used some improvement. You did a good job overall, so don’t be discouraged.

The voice really fit the character, and I loved the choking up at the end of line 2, as though he was reluctant to say it. Each line sounded believable, save for somewhat-awkward shouting in the third line. That’s about all that needed improvement.

I had you in the middle of the pack for Dhalsim only because to me your accent was a bit inconsistent. At times you sounded like the witch doctor from Monkey Island (she's female). Also didn't care for the trill you used on the 'H' in the 4th line.

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

The accent was a little shaky at the end of line 1, but it was well-done and consistent during the other lines. You did a great job at sounding wise, but still injecting some variation in delivery and tone.

A real solid submission overall and I had you third overall for the Chun-Li submissions. My only negative would be that perhaps the voice was a tiny bit too young for this character.

Voice sounded a little too young, but your acting was excellent. Lines 2, 3, and 4 were especially strong.

I have been a big supporter of yours so far and you came very close to being my overall top voice for Chun-Li. Maybe just a tad soft in your delivery if I had to pick anything to critique.

Agrees (2)  Disagrees (3)
NCZ

I liked the more subtle anger at the beginning of line 2, and that it transitioned to being more aggressive at the end. The voice sounded a little young/soft at times but otherwise wasn’t a bad fit for Chun Li. Lines were delivered well overall.

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (3)
NCZ

Liked your accent, sage-like voice, and a decent bit of variation in delivery. One thing I think could be improved is removing the pauses during certain lines (such as “give me strength to vanquish… evil”). I felt the strongest lines you did were 2 and 3.

I don't think you quite captured the age of the character for me in comparison to your competitors. Your third line was your best for me the others just seemed a tiny bit flat. Don't get me wrong it was still a decent performance overall.

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

Overall, I felt that while your voice sounded a little too young for Ryu, your acting wasn’t too shabby, especially the third line. The second line could've used a bit more emotion. Pretty decent overall.

First line began narratoresque, picked up at "am I worthy of this fight?" I liked line 2’s transition from reluctancy to assertiveness. Line 4 was believable, though sounded like a different voice at times. Essentially, just work on staying consistent.

There isn't necessarily anything wrong with your performance here but when I compared them to the other Chun-Li submissions you ended up 5th for me. Just a few minor things in your lines but nothing terrible.

Agrees (2)  Disagrees (2)
NCZ

Line 2 is mainly what held you back. It didn’t have enough anger or frustration to sound believable. The other lines were done well enough; just inject a bit more emotion or energy into your performance.

I just don't think this voice fits the character unfortunately. I know nothing about street fighter but based on the image and the character description I just don't think this voice fits, sorry.

Agrees (5)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

I couldn’t see the voice fitting Ryu that well, but the last three lines had good acting. Line 1 was a tad awkward, mainly the pause in “Am I worthy… of this fight?” Stick to characters that match your voice, polish your delivery a bit and you’ll be fine.

Another solid performance for Round 1 and not much to critique here. I had you right in the middle of the pack for Chun-Li. Perhaps a little too much 'whisper voice' in the third line for my liking.

Agrees (5)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

Your voice is a great fit for Chun-Li and you delivered most of the lines well, particularly line 2. However, I felt line 3 transitioned to a whispery tone a bit too soon, so it kind of dragged on. Otherwise, good job!
