Default Re: Fire Emblem Heroes

A couple pages back I posted my crackpot theory about the possibility of a second studio/casting crew being involved for the game. This is mostly because a lot of the casting choices and names being brought in are not very Cup of Tea-esque (lots of actors beyond their usual wheelhouse, a surprising reliance on aliases/uncredited actors also from outside the usual pool, less emphasis on doublecasting, etc.). Obviously it's possible this is just a byproduct of other projects and auditions they're working with that expand things a bit, and this is all just a single line of speculation that I'm humouring for the sake of this post, but in any case there's something that miiiiiight lend some weight to the idea.

In the new summer pack, everyone is credited to their usual actors... except Tana.

Tana is credited to "Joie Marlowe". The thing is, Joie Marlowe is just Melissa Fahn. BUT she only uses that name on dubs directed by... Bob Buchholz.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/enc....php?id=129403

The fact that she's credited under her real name at first and suddenly under this new name definitely jumps out to me. The other thing worth noting is Griffin Burns who joined the cast led Devilman Crybaby which is also Buchholz-directed. A lot of the traits I mentioned above have also been common hallmarks in Buchholz's dubs lately.

Again this is all speculation at the moment, but I wonder if it's worth mentioning. The main other thing we know of is that Wendee lee directed Ratana and Faye Mata, so while that may be a potential point against it it does at least show that it hasn't been Seitz directing the entire time.

This is all just pure speculation, but the recasting of Erin Fitzgerald might also support the idea that Bang Zoom was involved in this. Erin did not return for the last Neptunia game because of union issues, that game was released in October last year so her decision must've been made a couple of months before that. However she did return for Chie in Cross Tag Battle(most likely PCB), released recently, and she also was in Terraformars(Studiopolis), released at the beggining of this year. I doubt that she has agreed to be in those titles before refusing Neptunia. I don't know if she has appeared in another CoT title recently but if this last batch of characters was done at Bang Zoom might be the reason why she was recasted.

Again, this is all just pure speculation.

So...does anyone think “Alicia Stratten” could be the uncredited actress behind the YoRHa Commander in Nier: Automata? Same Wendee Lee/Cup of Tea talent pool, and I hear a bit of Laegjarn in particular.

I don't hear any of Laegjarn at all in the Commander's voice, it's far more "restrained" almost in it's delivery, where's Laegjarn's is much deeper and huskier.

Well, itís not like voice actors canít change their delivery to fit the individual characters. But yes, on second thought it is more than a bit of a stretch.

Might as well go with the Bang Zoom theory then and look for commonly uncredited/aliased VAs there, because I otherwise canít seem to find any Cup of Tea regulars that sound like Stratten.

I've been trying to figure out who Walden James could be - been browsing through BtVA listening to people from Bob Buchholz dubs for the most part, and the one guy who really stands out to me is Kim Strauss.

Of course this guy hasn't really been doing anything for like ten years, and the resemblance is very vague, but he was honestly the best I could find.

Others who I thought somewhat matched were Brian Beacock, Steve Bulen, Richard Cansino, Darrel Guilbeau, Joe Ochman, Jan Rabson, Chris Smith (honestly, Reinhardt does sound a little like Iago), Steve Staley (with his McGillis voice) and Derek Stephen Prince (as Vexen). However, Strauss is still the closest - I wouldn't be surprised if it was him.

That might actually might not be farfetched after all because surprisingly he reprised his character in the Eureka 7 movie.

Are you just tossing out every name you can think of? This kind of wild guessing has kept us spinning our wheels on this issue from the beginning. Some of these guesses are just painfully off the mark. Christopher Corey Smith as Walden James? You can't be serious.

That's not even getting into the logistical issue that the apparent Bob Buchholz casting didn't start until AFTER Walden James was in the game, IE at launch.

Every known Walden James/Walter Rego role has been attached to Kris Zimmerman-Salter with the only exceptions being Heroes, where he's reprising something and some long forgotten 90s cartoon called
Bureau of Alien Detectors with Jamie Simone. If Walden is a well known actors it's someone who regularly works with KZS, which i don't think Kim Strauss ever has.

First off I think the interest is appreciated.

That being said I don't think the whole scatterehot approach is the way to go here. a vague resemblance is not enough. If there's an actor with a 1:1 match to ALL of Walden James/Walter Rego's roles, that's when there'll be a real lead. So I would like to emphasize that people don't go too wild when it comes to listing every possible name.

Also, I would stress that the idea that it's a "well known"/regular dub VA is probably not the right train of thought here. The fact that he's so scarce combined with the pedigree of other actors, and that he only seems to work for KZS nowadays, suggests pretty strongly to ne that ge's some screen/theatre actor, or maybe even a semi-retired one, who happens to sometimes do (non-union) VO on the side. It's not going to be anyone "obvious" liie most of the names there.

Going forth please keep this in mind, similarly for other aliases/actors.

Kim Strauss is semi-retired, though - he hasn't been around for 10 years, until the Eureka 7 movie popped up.

...Also, wait a minute, is Walden James the same Walter Rego who plays Jean Descole in Professor Layton?

There is also another possibility that I just thought of. It's entirely possible Walden James is a Canadian voice actor, as KZS has directed Ocean Group dubs before - that could explain why he's so obscure and hard to find.
