    Thanks, man! Glad to hear that you agree!

    I could see most of these VA's working out pretty well, with the exception of Griffith--I don't know, I think he's a great VA, but thinking back to some of his roles, I don't think he'd be a good Dan.

    Everyone else is fair game, though, and I can totally imagine them potentially voicing Dan.

    I totally agree with you, pal: McCord's voice just fits the character so well and is pretty unique.

    Not that Bukhari's performance is bad, but after listening to that clip of his again, I don't think it fits that much. Nowadays, I just think the guy sounds (somewhat) artificial, but like you said, the direction he was given could also have affected his rendition.

    Now, if I could suggest some VAs for Dan, then here's a list for you to look at (if you're interested, that is):
    Antony Del Rio
    Jason Griffith
    Yuri Lowenthal
    Scott Menville
    Bryce Papenbrook

    I also saw someone suggest Kyle Hebert after typing "voice cast meme" on my phone and suddenly bumping into an image of a hypothetical cast for the series, but honestly, I don't think it would work very well (no offense to the guy, though).
  3. MasterBlaster
    Definitely McCord, without a doubt. Guy originated the role and had an entire series to refine and perfect it.

    Bukhari's a decent stand-in and does decent enough, even if his voice for Dan is higher-pitched than McCord's, but lacks any of the nuance that McCord's Dan has. Plus him being restricted by having to imitate a previous actor (and also likely the voice direction he was given) doesn't really help, either.
  4. Marusero
    Between McCord and Bukhari, who do you think is the better Dan?
  5. MasterBlaster
    No problem! Glad I could help, bud!
  6. Marusero
    Thank you very much, pal! I'll make sure post the VC request sometime tomorrow.

    Better and better, to be honest! Better enough that I actually managed to finish the sound clips! Sorry for the wait and all that.

    I decided to source Scott McCord's soundclips from the game, as opposed to the anime, since I felt that comparing them on that level (game vs. game) would make sense (plus, the anime was ADR while the games were prelay, IIRC).

    I also decided to do two versions of McCord's soundclips, one with a bit of tutorial chatter and one without, but with a bit more cutscene dialogue. So you can decide which one you like a bit more.

    How's your arm doing? Is it still getting better?
  9. MasterBlaster
    Yeah, I'm doing well, thanks for asking! Same here, arm still hurts a smidge, but it's doing a bit better than before, for sure.
  10. Marusero
    Are you doing well, buddy? I hope for your arm to recover as soon as possible.
