Wow, you guys really went all out on this one. This dub sure took everyone by surprise. Everyone thought of it as undubbable but Karl Willems, Jack Cox and their team nailed it. It is about as good as a Gintama dub can possibly get. go to »

Mela Lee was born to voice Rin. She is just perfect. The snootiness, the arrogance, the cuteness and her voice just screams tsundere.

Carli Mosier is miscast. Her voice doesn’t have the same tsundere vibe and her delivery is stiff and awkward. go to »
Shirou Emiyasaid at 7:03 AM on Tue Mar 19 2019
Sam is pretty good, especially in the UBW movie but Bryce really gives Shirou that naive, teenage boy sound that just really fits. Patrick is okay but he just sounds like a generic anime teen. go to »
Kiritsugu Emiyasaid at 7:01 AM on Tue Mar 19 2019
Matthew Mercer IS Kiritsugu. At first, I thought he sounded too young, but the amount of passion he put into this role was just incredible, especially the iconic boat scene. Thornton is decent with what little material he has. Jones gets the angsty tone but the voice is just not deep enough. go to »
Shinji Matousaid at 12:41 PM on Wed Mar 13 2019
This is a tough one. Kyle McCarley sounds more age appropriate, but Doug Erholtz just kills in the UBW movie. The sliminess, the cowardice and especially that evil laugh. He just oozes evil in this role.

Kyle also has all of that but Doug just has that extra layer of sliminess that really makes an already despicable character even more despicable. So, my vote goes to Doug. go to »
Archersaid at 9:31 PM on Mon Mar 11 2019
Gonna go with Liam on this one. I am a bit biased as he is my favorite VA, but he really got that tough, manly tone just right with a hint of bitterness which was icing on the cake.

Kaiji is also great but the rasp and grit in his voice is a bit more forced compared to Liam. go to »

Jason Griffith...Roles like this show what he's truly capable of. Listen to that pure emotion at the end of his clip. Just top notch. It really shows how much of a difference quality direction can make.

However, according to Kirbopher in his latest stream, Jason may not be doing anime anymore. Don't quote me on that, but Kirb said he's been turning down some roles and focusing more on live action work.

If that's true, it's a shame. With NYAV Post redubing Gundam Seed, I was hoping that they'd also redub Destiny and have Jason as Shin. go to »
Dragon Ball Supersaid at 6:32 AM on Mon Aug 28 2017
@Shaun Ince I'm hoping Seitz will be Jiren personally. Sabat's Armstrong/All Might voice would be a great fit for Toppo but he's already voiced so many characters in this franchise.

@itsmedeadpool Turns out, he was unable to reprise due to schedule conflicts, according to Colleen Clinkenbeard. When the Blu-Ray dub is recorded, which will have a more lenient schedule, he may return.

@4xNicholas What? Ray Chase has only voiced one anime protagonist in his entire career. Plus, Japanese voice actors are not as diverse as people like to think. They are actually reused far more often than dub voice actors, but no one seems to mind. Yuki Kaji and Kana Hanazawa in particular are everywhere. Why is it that it's okay for Japanese voice actors to be reused constantly but not English voice actors? go to »
One Punch Mansaid at 9:15 AM on Tue Sep 13 2016
@Shaun Ince It could be because people only wanted to see the first episode of the dub just out of curiosity. Or perhaps people are just getting tired of staying up so late. It's not so bad in my timezone, but in others it airs in the middle of the night. Who knows? go to »

@Honest_Guy_Says Obvious agendas? I've never even heard of many of this dub's cast before. There are a ton of newcomers in this dub. Chris Jai Alex, David W Collins, Rich Brown, Sara Cravens, Ben Lepley, Edward Basco, and not to mention Chris Sabat and Mike McFarland actually being in an LA anime dub. Chris Cason and Bang Zoom threw plenty of curve-balls with this dub and brought in a ton of new talent.

Also, since when do ratings say anything of a dub's quality? DBZ Kai gets better ratings because it airs earlier, albeit only slightly and it appeals more to the nostalgia of Toonami's old days, not to mention that it airs on regular Cartoon Network a few hours before Toonami starts, which would naturally draw in more viewers. The premiere of this dub had top notch ratings and the reason it dropped is very debatable.

My intention isn't to start an argument or anything, but I feel that a lot of your points don't really add up. Just thinking out loud. go to »

@Food4thought In all honesty, I'm inclined to agree with you. As good as she is, some people glorify her to an absurd degree, even proclaiming that they have no interest in a dub if she is not in it.

I've even heard that some people go so far as to bully directors into casting her more often. It's gotten to the point where Marchi herself has called these people out. I love her as much as anyone else, but people should realize that this kind of behavior is only going to make her look bad. go to »

@freezeframe100 Sadly, bias is a very common thing in the anime community. Many people are just too used to the version they saw first to accept a different version. And where did you get the bloated ego thing from? Most dub VA's are very humble and kind people. They also respect subs and sub fans ver much. Is it because some of them have complained about dub haters? Well, they're only referring to the ones who are obnoxious about it and they make it clear that they don't hate subs or sub fans in anyway. Seriously, I have no idea where you're getting this from. Honestly, you're coming off as pretty rude about it. Especially with that "butthurt and salty" bit at the end. go to »

Happy Birthday to my favorite actress! Her voice is every bit as beautiful as she is and her performances truly have some very powerful emotion behind them. She nailed Maka's strong, but sweet personality and Lust's seductive but sinister personality. Her screaming in both roles was also blood-curdling and you could tell how dedicated she was. However, my favorite role of hers has to be Kushina. You could tell that she put her heart and soul into that performance and it's still tough for me not to get teary-eyes when I listen to it. I truly cannot praise her performance enough. One of the best I've ever seen. It's also pretty cool that she shares her birthday with my other favorite VA, Liam O'Brien. go to »
Liam O'Briensaid at 6:15 PM on Sat May 28 2016
Happy Birthday to my favorite VA! I first heard him as Gaara in Naruto. His most famous role and for good reason. He nailed the cold, creepy and sadistic little sociopath perfectly. And his scream still gives me chills. "BLOOD! IT'S MY BLOOOOOD!!!!" Terrifying. However, the role that made him my favorite VA was Asura. The sheer amount of rage, passion and fury he put into that performance always stuns me no matter how many times I play that criminally underrated game. Episode 12 was where he truly knocked it out of the water. I can't imagine how painful it was to do so much intense screaming. Talk about desication. He will always be my favorite VA, even if he doesn't do as much anime these days. go to »

Anakin Skywalkersaid at 11:22 AM on Fri Feb 26 2016
1: Matt Lanter: While his voice is quite different from Hayden Christensen, the deeper voice fits Anakin's struggle with darkness and his eventual downfall, but he still sounds youthful enough to fit Anakin's heroic aspects. He was pretty much perfect, and looking at him, I honestly think he'd make a great live action Anakin.
2: Kirby Morrow: Pretty much the perfect Vancouver VA for Anakin. I would honestly love to hear him play a more serious version of Anakin.
3: Matt Lucas: He sounds almost exactly like Hayden Christensen, but at the same time, he also sounds rather whiny. Much more than Christensen ever did, IMO. However, I will give him this. His screaming towards the end of the dual with Ventress gave me chills.
The others aren't bad, but not really worth going into detail over. go to »

1: Chris Sabat: At first, his Vegeta was an extremely forced impression of Brian Drummond. It improved over time, but it was still overly raspy. However, by the time Kai came around, he had truly made the character his own. He sounded smooth, regal, angry and arrogant. When most people think of Vegeta, Sabat's voice is what comes to their minds, and it's easy to see why.

2: Brian Drummond: At times, he can sound great. Particularly during the famous wrath scene, in which, he sent chills down my spine. However, I always though his voice was too high, and he started to get worse towards the Andriod saga.

The other two don't really do anything for me and I don't really have much else to say about them. go to »

I feel I should address the whole controversy about the dubs of this franchise. Now, I prefer the Ocean dub as well. It was really well done. But Funi cannot afford to outsource to Canada for another 75 episodes plus a movie. It's not their fault. Honestly if Geneon left all of their anime to Viz instead, the Ocean VA's probably would've returned. Viz has a lot of funds from their Manga sales. Much more than any other licensing company. They can actually afford to outsource their dubs, though, they don't do it very much anymore, as LA is their preferred dubbing circle. But, we should not blame this on Funi. I enjoy both dubs, and both Karl Willems and Christopher Bevins are solid directors. go to »

Here's my theory on Kelly Angel's real identity. As I was told in my comment below, her real initials are B.A. I have also done research in the ANN forums. She is a newcomer who has gained quite a bit of attention lately. Also, in the first episode, her voice was rather high-pitched. She deepened it later, but some mannerisms of the voice are still a bit noticable. Combining all of those clues, my conclusion is that Kelly Angel is Bryn Apprill! Talk about range. I never would've guessed it was her. go to »

Dear God, that performance. Calling his Lelouch Oscar worthy would be an understatement. So much indescribable passion, force, inspiration and power. Truly one of the greatest performances I have ever seen. VO or otherwise. He may reuse his voices a bit, but IMO, it doesn't matter. He always succeeds at portraying his character and putting every bit of his heart and soul into it. God bless this man. His acting will always be timeless. He has earned every bit of praise he has recieved and more. go to »
JoJo's Bizarre Adventuresaid at 3:05 PM on Fri Sep 4 2015
After seeing the first six episodes, as well as several clips of Battle Tendency, I have to say that this dub is excellent. Why are people being bothered by the accents when no one complains about the Engrish in the sub? Double standards I say. Why is it okay for JP VA's to badly pronounce words of another language, but when ENG VA's do it, everyone throws a fit. The accents are no where near as bad as everyone makes them out to be. Johnny Yong Bosch and Patirck Seitz are perfect as Jonathan and Dio. And while I would've preferred Liam O'Brien, Keith Silverstein does a great job as Speedwagon. For his brief appearance, Marc Diraison was flawless as George. Then again, when isn't Marc Diraison amazing? Joe Ochman sounds excellent as Zeppeli. He sounds very wise, Fatherly and fancy. From the clips I've seen, Ben Diskin is great as Joseph, but there's something I don't get. When Richard Epcar voiced old Joseph in the test dub, people complained that he didn't have an accent. Now, he does have an accent and people are complaining that it should be American? Double Standards, once again, it seems. Bryce Papenbrook has a very nice, smooth voice for Caesar, though the accent can waver at times. Personally, I would've gone with Roger Craig Smith using his Ezio voice, but I'm fine with Bryce. Oh, don't even get me started in the Pillar Men. Paul St Peter and CC Smith are beyond perfect as Wamuu and Kars, especially. Then there's the most controversial English voice, Stroheim. If Patrick Seitz wasn't already Dio, he could've used his Germany voice for Stroheim. If not him, than Steve Blum using his Red Skull voice, but I'm not sure if this dub is union or not. Dan Woren can sound great at times, but other times, he cam sound a bit strained. Oh, Wendee Lee as Lisa Lisa, just...beautiful. Just when I think her voice couldn't possibly get any more gorgeous. Stephanie Sheh is just adorable as Suzie Q. Even for her, she sounds truly beautiful and sweet. She has truly outdone herself. Overall, I'm very impressed with this dub, but that's just me. True, it changed out some iconic lines and phrases, but it also gave us some great rewrites, like "Hush, boy! You will nit speak my name in vain again!" or "My very blood is a symphony within me!" I'm stunned to see some people call this 4kids levels of dubbing. That's a very broad exaggeration of a statement. If people just tune out the sub and keep it out of their minds, they would very much enjoy it. If you ask me, dubs and subs are not meant to be compared. They are both meant to be enjoyed and respected in their own way. One more thing, David Vincent is a solid narrator and I really don't see the problem with JYB being reused as often as he is. As long as he fits the character and puts emotion into it, why does it matter? That's my two cents. go to »

@NCZ I apologize and I certainly understand the magnitude fo what he did, but I decided to view the voice actor Scott Freeman and the pedophile scott Freeman as two different people. I felt it was nest that way seeing as these events put me into a depression for days. I am not trying to justify his actions, as I know they were horrific, but I can't bring myself to hate him. I admired him a lot and loved his acting. No one wants to admit that someone they look up to did a terrible thing, but I have accepted it. I just think this way so I can still enjoy his past acting and look back on it fondly, instead of thinking about what he did to become a criminal.

Well, it took a while, but I've come to terms with what happened. He did a terrible thing, I'm not denying that. However...I can't hate him. I just can't. He was an amazing actor, and seemed to be a really nice and great person, from the vids I've seen of him. That doesn't justify his actions, I know, but if you ask me, something snapped in him and he gave into his temptations. I will remember him for the great actor and person he used to be. I will mourn that Scott Freeman. As for the one we have now...I've moved on. I was always hoping that he would find someone else, get a new home and come back to Funi, but that will never happen now.

I will always love his acting and shall greatly miss it. But to think that I mearly shed tears after hearing about his "divorce", that I respected and admired him so much and how devastated I was when I heard he was leaving...I don't know what to think anymore. I am not removing him from my favorites. Criminal or not, he was a great actor, but it will take a while to let this sink in. But...regardless....It was good whioe it lasted, Mr. Freeman. Now, I just think I'd give anything to go back in time and stoo him from making a terrible decision, so he'd still be acting, we'd all have a great time listening to him as Issei, England, Masakaki and others.

After seeing The Return of Slade, which is a straight up lie of a title. I'm convinced that the writers just do not care anymore. Their response to criticism is as immature and shallow as this show. They just constantly threw the old "it's for kids" excuse at us. Plenty of shows like the original Teen Titans were aimed at kids, but had brilliant writing and adult themes here and there, which did wonders. This show just continues to prove that the writers know that kids will watch anything that flashes in fromt of their faces and enjoy it. The writers can't seem to tell the difference between somewhat harsh constructive criticism and blatant insults for no reason. go to »

1: Sean Schemmel: Was thereb ever any doubt? Now, at first, he sounded very stiff and flat, but he slowly improved as time went on. When Kai came around, he was downright perfect. And after seeing Battle Of Gods, I am 100% convinced that Schemmel IS this character. He sounds young, innocent and naïve, but still sounds age appropriate. And do I even need to mention the screams? I have never seen a single VA out there who can scream quite like this man. The screams sound so primal, powerful and downright chilling. He is simply perfect and was born to play Goku.

2: Ian James Corlett: His voice is very fitting and his acting is decent, but his screams can sound very stiff. Speaking of which, it's completely unreasonable that Ocean didn't pay their actors for their screams, which is why he left.

3: Peter Kelamis: His screaming is solid, but his voice can be a bit shrill and high. On the bright side, MasakoX based his voice primarily off of Kelamis's Goku.

4: Kirby Morrow: I'm sorry, but I can't stand his Goku. I can honestly see him being an amazing Goku, but the direction killed it. He sounds so whiny and childish. I'd say it's Morrow's weakest role in his otherwise admirable career.

5: Steve Blum: Really? Steve Blum, who is known for his deep, gruff voice as a character who should sound innocent and peaceful? Complete miscast.

6: Jeremiah Yurk: He makes Goku sound like an elitist jerk.

My thoughts:
Shriou: A bit of a shock, but he does fit the whole, idealsitic, naive idiot type of character. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Rin: Mela Lee IS this character. Glad that she returned.

Kirei: Crispin seems to have deepened his voice a bit since Zero. I look forward to it.

Shinji: Aoba from Durarara? Seems strange. Doug Erholtz was amazing, but I'll give Kyle the benefit of the doubt.

Kuzuki: I don't think I'll like him as much as Patrick Seitz, but Lex Lang seems like a great choice.

Illya: Stephanie was always a great Illya. I have faith that she'll do great in the emotional scenes.

Gilgamesh: David Vincent was perfectly pompous in Zero. I look forward to hearing him again.

Saber: If Kari Wahlgren improves her screaming, she'll probably be my new favorite Saber. She always fit the character, though.

Archer: very disappointed that my favorite VA isn't Archer, but Tang is probably the best replacement they could've gotten.

Lancer: Tony Oliver sounds better than ever in that trailer! Can't wait!

Rider: Odd choice. Haven't seen Fahn do sultry characters like this before. Curious.

Caster: I'll miss Tara Platt, but Hollingshead has a very attractive voice and seems like a good fit.

Assassin: Todd? Very strange choice. I would've gone with Keith Silverstein. Oh, well. I'll have to hera it first.

Taiga: JAT sounded a bit forced in the old FSN. She has more experimce, so I'm sure she'll be bood.

@Mr_Ecchi_Man We all have out opinions, but saying dub fans are too easily satisfied or that they either haven't seen enough dubs or are too wimpy to express their opinion is a straight-up insult. I've seen a ton of Josh Grelle's work and I think he's an amazing VA. What does that make me? And to say Funi cares nothing for consistency is very disrespectful. Chris Sabat and Colleen Clinkenbeard were likely busy with other dubs that needed their attention. And personally, I think the dub script was hilarious and really added to the charm. And the reason they couldn't get Scott back was because he was going through very difficult times in his life. He lost his Wife, his house and his career. If I were in his shoes, I wouldn't be ready to work again anytime soon either. I don't know why Terri Rogers left, but I'm sure she had a good reason. go to »

Happy very late birthday, Mr. Freeman. God knows how much I respect you. Your Issei was irreplaceable. It was hilarious, intense and can sound downright chilling all at the same time. You were born for that character. Your other roles were fantastic as well. Your flamboyant Masakaki, your funny England and your wickedly raspy Bickslow. Your acting will be missed greatly. But more important, despite all the tragedies you've been through this year, just remember how much those 70 people who favorited you and many others. How much we loved your work and how much we worry for you. "I want you to remember him. The man named Issei Issei Hyodo." go to »

Friezasaid at 5:38 AM on Wed May 20 2015
My ranking.
1: Chris Ayres: He was pretty much perfect, sounding regal and sophisticated, but at the same time, sadistic and evil. The occasional British accent never bothered me. If people hate the accent so much, by that logic, they'd hate LittleKuriboh's Frieza, but I've never seen anyone call it bad. I've always seen everyone call it actually fitting for the real character, even if it's a parody.
2: Pauline Newstone: The voice is too girly but I guess it could've been worse. Not much else to say.
3: Eddie Frierson: Too nasally and whiny, but I wouldn't call it unlistenable.
4: Linda Young: I'm sorry, but I absolutely HATE her frieza with a passion. The voice is so raspy, grating and obnoxious that it has literally caused pain in my ears. No joke. Plus, the old lady voice is just completely unfitting, and the atrocious one liners don't help at all. Pop goes the weasel? Are you kidding me? Who can take a line like that seriously? I know a lot of people like it, but I just can;t stand it.
5: Maureen Jones: Kill it! Kill it with fire! Dear God, I have never seen a worse voice for this character and I doubt that I ever will. Absolutely horrific. Makes Linda Young sound good.
I'm also looking forward to Lee Tockar's take. I have a feeling he'll be great, especially if he uses this voice, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lA5CPv_5RoY

After seeing Episode 3, I am VERY happy with this dub. Josh Grelle is truly doing Scott Freeman justice, sounding both hilarious and very emotional. Kelly Angel's Akeno has also improved considerably since the first episode. I can also confirm that Aaron Roberts has reprised his role as Michael and that Loki is voiced by John Burgemeier as I hoped. I think Rossweise might be Morgan Garrett, but I'm not 100% sure. Either way, Cris George is proving himself to be a pretty solid director. Still, Scott Freeman and Terri Rogers are pretty much irreplaceable, IMHO. go to »

Monkey D. Luffysaid at 5:08 AM on Wed May 13 2015
1: Colleen Clinkenbeard: She IS this character. She sounds funny, cute, boyish but also furious and bone-chilling in the screaming. After seeing how she handled the jet gatling scene, I must confess that I love her Luffy more than Mayumi Tanaka's. Before you shoot me, I love Tanaka's Luffy as well, but Colleen just destroyed that scene and this performance is what made her my second favorite female VA behind Laura Bailey.
2: Erica Schroeder. Her voice is actually quite fitting for Luffy, and if she was given better direction, it could've been great, but the massive nail in the coffin for her Luffy is the acting. She sounds incredibly stiff and wooden, and at best, very cheesy. Her laugh sounds like Woody Woodpecker, and it got consistently worse over time. It made me want to smack Luffy in his rubber face and he was my favorite character.
3: Chuck Powers. Pretty much horrendous. Luffy is one of those characters that just isn't meant to be voiced by a man. His voice is just very forced, and his acting is just atrocious. A terrible performance in a dub that makes 4kids look professional. go to »

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Workssaid at 12:04 PM on Wed Apr 15 2015
@AntiSabat666 Figured I'd give my two sense as well.

Shirou: Sam Riegel is underrated in this role, IMHO. I'd like if he reprised it, but if not, Yuri Lowenthal would be perfect.

Saber: Both Kate Higgins and Kari Wahlgren were great in the role, so either would be awesome, though I sightly prefer Higgins because she had better screams.

Rin: Of course, Mela Lee IS this character. Can't imagine anyone else.

Archer: Liam was amazing as usual, so he would be best.

Kirei: Since this is an older, more evil Kirei, I agree that Jamieson Price would be best.

Lancer: Tony Oliver should come back, but if not, I hear Sean Schemmel is in LA now.

Shinji: Doug Erholtz was fantastic in the role and had a terrifying laugh. If anyone should reprise their old role, it should be him.

Rider: Karen Strassman again, even if it's for such a short time.

Kuzuki: Patrick Seitz. He almost made such a bland character interesting...almost.

Caster: Tara Platt again or Mary Elizabeth McGlynn since they are both the English equivalents of Atsuko Tanaka.

Illya: Stephanie was amazing in FZ, so she should definitley come back.

Berserker: Michael McConnohie using his filter from the movie would be good. But Fred Tatasciore would be perfect if it's a union dub.

Zouken: In the Heaven's Feel movie, either Michael Donovan, but since he's usually an Ocean VA, he may not come back. William Frederick Knight would be great.

Assassin: Grant George would be good since I have someone else in mind for Gil.

Gilgamesh: David Vincent was great in the part. In terms of acting, I'd say he was on par with Tomokazu Seki. He should return

Issei: Yes, Steve Staley would be great in this role.

Brina Palenica should be Sella. Cassandra Lee could be Liz.

Sakura: Cristina Vee, easily. Sherry Lyn's Sakura sounded too squeaky and annoying.

Taiga: Julie Ann Taylor would be nice. Maybe Veronica Taylor, even.

Arleen was awesome in TAS, but am I the only one who thought she got a bit worse in Arkham Asylum? Maybe it's just because the character herself took a huge nosedive in the Arkham games. In TAS, she was likeable and sweet for a villainess, but in the Arkham games, I just wanted to smash her face in, just to shut her up. In City, I could rip that tape from her mouth and put it back on for hours. She just lost so much of her likeability. Don't get me wrong, the Arkham games are masterpieces, but they just butchered Harley's character IMHO.

Dragon Ball SuperShaun Ince said at 9:34 AM on Mon Aug 28 2017
@BioZero216 The reason I suggested Seitz for Toppo is based off of how bombastic Toppo is. The voice he used for Franky in One Piece could work in that sense. I'm also basing that off the fact that it would be another role that he shares with his Japanese voice actor Kenji Nomura. Since they both voiced Magnus from the Kid Icarus franchise. Though in that case he wasn't cast to match the sound of the seiyuu & was doing an impression of the former actor(Fred Tatasciore)

We've heard so little of Jiren, it's harder for me to think of an ideal English voice for him. Which is why I'm not completely sold on the idea of having Patrick Seitz voice Jiren. reply »

@BioZero216 Basically your point is, there's a double standard and it needs to be called out on, even though most people that complain about reusing voice actors don't even care about their own hypocrisy. Considering most people that complain about this mostly exist outside of this website, you won't see it that much on here.

Besides NCZ brings up a good point, non union talent pool for English dubs is much smaller meaning recycling voice actors is going to be more common. And it's also not specific to one dubbing studio.

Japan just has more talent to draw from. Other than the really successful Japanese voice actors (Rie Kugamiya, Shinichiro Miki, Koichi Yamadera, Yuki Kaji) I think you might be over exaggerating their overuse a little bit.

You know the saying: "you haven't seen all the dubs in the world, if you think all of them suck" which is something you stand by, no doubt. But let me ask you this.

Have you watched every anime that's in Japanese to know that all of them are overused? You haven't, so that argument doesn't hold up either.

My Hero Academiaitsmedeadpool said at 10:48 AM on Sun Apr 9 2017
@BioZero216 I also hope they will, but that'll depend on the producers and Colleen Clinkenbeard. For example: During the recording for Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, Jason Liebrecht voiced the Hermit in the first season of the show. But after his motorcycle incident, he was unable to record the second season and was replaced by Eric Vale. The producers couldn't wait on him to recover because he was out of commission for a whole year and Kenichi sold too well for FUNimation to delay the release of the second season. If Alex is making a return during the broadcast dubs in a sudden miraculous style and is available for the rest of the series, then Colleen can make the call.

Even if she's given the green light to allow Alex to record all Aizawa's lines for the Home Video release, my hunch is she will stay put with Chris because he is in the area and is also easier to call on, and his voice sounds pretty similar to Alex's to keep the consistency (to be honest, I didn't know it was Chris until I saw the cast announcement and I thought it was Alex recording with bandages covering his mouth). But I can be wrong. reply »

@BioZero216

Boycotting them doesn't mean I'm saying that we should ban Japanese voice acting in the United States. I'm just saying that they're overrated, and not nearly as good as many people (weebs, especially) seem to claim. Personally, one should only support a subbed only release on the possibility that it will be rereleased with a dub. If not, there is almost no reason to purchase them. It's not like Japanese voice acting is that great, anyway. I have always believed that having to read subs to understand a show is not, and will never be true enjoyment. If you love the Japanese voice acting so much, I'm sure your love for it will transcend even the blatant language barrier, allowing you to understand the context without subs by ear. Yeah, no. When you don't understand a language, the only way you could tell if the acting is good is by the vocal tones from the performances. That's all I have to say. reply »

Yeah, except I don't watch subs. Like, ever.

And as much as I love dubs, that doesn't mean I love every single one of them. I try my absolute best to point out at least one good thing in a dub. In which case, Keith Silverstein is the best Hisoka we've had to date.

One Punch ManNCZ said at 1:43 PM on Fri Sep 16 2016
The problem is the English non-union talent pool is far smaller than the Japanese talent pool. That makes there objectively is more reuse of talent, because there's less talent for them to draw from. There is a big difference.

The idea that seiyuus are reused just as often as dub VAs is basically an illusion. More output means more work for the VAs.

There are countless games, anime, and drama CDs recorded in Japan every year. So it's natural that actors tend to pop up in things over and over again. The problem is that in English, fewer things are dubbed in comparison and there are fewer people dubbing them. The statistics don't lie.

Also, I would like to point out that it's possible to discuss the dub in a civil way. Trying to deflect from criticisms by going "but what about this other thing" just turns the discussion into something else entirely. Not every critique of a dub, or wanting dubs to be more diverse, is someone saying that all dubs suck. Those are very different statements entirely. reply »

@BioZero216 I believe this has to do with the mentality that Japanese voice actors have more talent than English voice actors do. So people tend to think that it's more ok when the Japanese version does it. However, this is mere speculation. And also a thought process that I would not agree with. I believe that there are both English voice actors and Japanese voice actors with a great amount of talent. Just as there are voice actors for both that aren't as talented.

@BioZero216

Forgive me if I'm assuming here but I think you're misunderstanding some things.

For example

"Dubs suck! They make my ears bleed. Who are these no talent hacks?"

This = a clear hater, trollish comment and probably the type of comment to be blocked by the admins. There is nothing productive about this comment and little room to start a civil, logical conversation.

while this example

"I didn't like the dub. The voice didn't match the character's personality and appearance IMO. The VA sounds rough and I think *insert name* would've been a better fit"

YOU may think this is a hater comment but this is what is called a detailed explanation with constructive criticism. There is a difference. Just because something isn't positive doesn't mean it can't have merit and can't have some truth to it (even if you personally don't want to admit it or like it)

Also I don't think JF1991 was saying you should be a more negative, hateful person. But a subtle reminder that although many sub fans can be arrogant and clearly biased, that doesn't mean dubs get a free pass and dub fans should be as annoying and biased (or even more so)

IMO there's nothing wrong with constructive criticism if it leads to improvement or better decision making in the future. reply »

@BioZero216 I'm going to have to agree with JF1991 here (and in honesty, I clicked shout out by accident)

While vitriol isn't helpful neither is excessive praise. I know you don't like dub haters, but simply praising VAs without actually looking at what they did right or wrong doesn't do them any service either. Excessive praise isn't constructive criticism.

If you sincerely feel that a VA is doing a good job, that's fine. But don't go off getting into fights with people in youtube comments because they threw shade at a dub or the VAs involved in it.

I honestly liked Max as a VA before the OPM dub, but even then I still had some trouble hearing his voice as Saitama at first (Although I'm warming up to it). Basically, just let people not like things you like. Even if they're being rude about it you don't have to waste your time addressing them. reply »

I'm not sure how to say this without you being offended but here I go.

I haven't been a member here that long but before I finally registered I have browsed the site often. During that time I've seen you comment... a lot.

When you're constantly praising everything and everyone it becomes difficult to take your opinions very seriously if that's your intention. Either you're a very positive person IRL so the idea of criticism isn't part of your personality, or you're fishing for feedback and hoping everyone cares about what you think.

Also considering casual animation fans probably don't watch a lot of anime unless it's zapped into their TV for their convenience is it really a surprise it's his most popular role atm? I'd wager if any other anime aired on TV his role in that would have the most votes too.

Ultimately though I don't see why it really matters. He doesn't even have 100 total votes yet so given time some other role could end up being more popular; especially to bandwagon fans who'll clamor to the next big popular thing and some of them could end up changing their vote to another role someday.

If you enjoy his role, cool, I'm not going to try and convince you not to, but FWIW plenty of people don't like it so you shouldn't assume your opinion always = the majority and the "correct" side because that how a lot of your comments come across. It's sometimes cringe-worthy to read and I'd feel bad for you if people were laughing at you behind your back.

Looks even worse when all the performances you say are "best ever" (which seems to be everything...) don't even get nominated for the BTVA Awards so you start to loose credibility IMO and then it looks like you're some guy who likes to hear himself talk/read his own words...

We would all *adore* the greatest voice-over actors possible, including, of course, the likes of John DiMaggio, Tara Strong, & James Arnold Taylor, dubbing anime...

..but what we have is what the market supports, & it isn't fair to detract from the people who are willing to work for the pay that is available.

I DO think there's an audience out there for plenty of anime dubs, HxH included.

It's just that network executives don't want to touch the shows, for reasons unbeknownst to me...

@BioZero216
Sorry I didn't explain myself well. I meant to say that regardless of how cheap something may be if it's lacking extra content fans want (e.g. omakes, extra OVA episodes, director's cut footage) those fans feel like they're getting an incomplete product.

As for high prices there are some pros/cons to them. I've noticed that higher costing sets usally have more discs. There is a limit to how much data a disc can hold before there begins to be a noticeable dip in picture & sound quality. 3-4 episodes was once the standard for the singles era in North America (still is in Japan). Now you have 6-9 episodes on a disc. Anything more than 7 episodes isn't that good. For example some of Viz's re-releases of the original Pokemon episodes have 12 episodes on a single disc! Fans are basically getting WORSE quality than when it originally aired on TV...

But some companies would rather print less overall discs to save money but if it's going to cost them sales they're actually only hurting themselves.

That being said some expensive sets are a complete rip-off (e.g. Aniplex USA); who honestly cares about limited edition postcards? lol reply »

Alex Organ was great. Nice big follow-up role to his work on Psycho-Pass. IMO though Jamie Marchi was easily the best performer of this dub; wouldn't be surprised if she wins Best Lead TV Actress

Zach Bolton is hit or miss as an ADR Director but Death Parade was surprisingly one of his best dubs to date and amongst all the FUNi broadcast dubs of 2015 was one of the most well done.

Hope Death Billiards gets included on the English Blu-ray/DVD release and dubbed too (but in an era of reverse importations fears some Japanese companies will refuse to hand over extras to make a less expensive collection less appealing for hardcore otaku) reply »

@BioZero216
Hate to break it to you but the money spent on North American or UK DVDs and Blu-rays doesn't impact Japan's industry as heavily as many fans think it does.

When a company like FUNimation pays for a license there's a thing called a minimum guarantee. This means that until FUNimation earns back the entire cost of the license they don't have to pay any additional $ to the Japanese (royalties).

If you've ever looked at a weekly DVD/Blu-ray sales chart you'll see the top 50 or 100 are primarily Hollywood movies and the occasional season box set of a hit TV show. It just shows how little anime DVDs actually sell (it is a niche hobby after all). That's why it's kind of a big deal when something like a Dragon Ball Z or Evangelion rank high on the sales chart. Otherwise the only ways to know the sales numbers for an average anime title is to have a Nielsen Scan membership (which I've heard cost at least 100K)

Going back to the minimum guarantee the chances of recouping the licensing cost in the very first year of sales is very unlikely. These agreements typically last 5-10 years. At the end of the contract the hope is that you've at least broken even and maybe have a bit of profit. Very rarely is there excess profit to splurge on new licenses.

ADV Films spent too much on licenses and brought in little to stay afloat. Geneon would buy licenses for anime that weren't even made yet (with the potential to be hits or bomb).

FUNimation may be the market leader in anime but let's not ignore the power of the Dragon Ball franchise. FUNimation has probably lost a ton of money on several licenses (pretty much anything re-released as a S.A.V.E. edition) yet Dragon Ball's profits offset those losses.

Some titles don't make back their licensing costs. Although they didn't have to pay Japan a single extra dollar, the company has lost money making the license unprofitable for them and unlikely to renew it (in case you're wondering why some long dubbed series were canceled e.g. Case Closed, D.Gray-man)

Let's say a title is profitable and its recouped the licensing costs. Now Japan can get some of that excess profit. Thing is it's only a small cut.

e.g. Say a FUNimation DVD costs $40

Japan maybe gets $10 of that sale.

A series sells let's say 1000 units = $40,000. Japan gets $10,000

Then consider Japanese prices.

$80 for one Blu-ray x 1000 units = $80,000 and they get pretty much all of it.

It's easy to roll eyes when some fans say they import blu-rays from Japan but they're actually helping more buying the more expensive native release; no middle man to take a cut.

To be clear I'm not saying a middle man is bad; for us it means a more affordable collection and sometimes an English dub, but in actually supporting the anime industry, importing from amazon.co.jp contributes a lot more.

Also it's been stated numerous times that nobody tells Toonami what to air. THEY decide what they want to air. Companies like FUNimation can suggest titles (new or old) but the Toonami executives have final say. reply »

It's also not that hard to illegally download or stream an anime subbed; some people are idiots and don't even know the sites they're visiting/leeching from aren't legal (even with new copyright laws and ISP willing to share IP addresses of customers with high illegal download history the industry is still losing money and the general thief doesn't care or remains undeterred)

Dubs are a major reason for why some fans still bother to buy anime on DVD and Blu-ray. If a dub sucks, there's very little reason to support it because that's what the sale would be paying towards; the dub production costs. The licensing fees are already paid for via LEGAL streaming (e.g. ads and subscription memberships). Fun fact, the cost of a dub is more often than not more expensive than the cost of an entire license.

The only other reason to buy and support a terrible dub is guilty/being an honest person. However I don't expect most teenagers or young adults in their 20s to have much empathy since they're among the heaviest downloaders/streamers and are also usually broke.

Statistics have shown that the average paying customer is usually settled down, has a secure job and has the disposable income to buy things like anime or music even though they're more than capable of getting it for free.

If you can't understand that some people would boycott a dub that's underwhelming here's a simpler example.

If a restaurant spat in your food or you found a gross hair would you still pay for it? Would you be in a good mood?

The customer is always right can be an annoying saying but there is truth to it. So long as any business wants people to pay for their services or goods (and be a lifetime customer) they'll be expected to deliver an acceptable level of quality and have respectable standards. reply »

@BioZero216 On one side, I'm just happy that we can finally have, I assume, replacement-subtitles of more accuracy - as with the dub's dialogue itself. CrunchyRoll barely had an hour to translate each episode, so quite a few things here and there will make more sense/have a bit more of an impact. reply »

@BioZero216 Don't be surprised when you find out they do an episode where they shoehorn a Mr Enter/eratic critic character in their show.

@BioZero216 That's a bit of an overeaction don't ya think? Also just because you don't mind him being overused, doesn't mean everyone else will think the same way. I'm pretty neutral on the subject when it comes to overuse, but I can understand where he's coming from when he says he's exhausted/burn out from hearing JYB in these roles. That same criticism about being overused translates to other mediums(V Cartoons & Video Game VA's) and I've seen the same complaints brought up. While I undestand how you feel annoyed about people bringing up the fact that he's overused, at the same time JYB shouldn't be exempt/exception to the rule just because you're a big fan of his work. reply »

@BioZero216 While it's true that Spongebob didn't go as far when it came to their ratings traps, at the same time, it's everyone else's fault for taking the bait. It's obvious that the Teen Titans Go writers don't care about having very negative press revolved around them because in a way, it's one of the reasons that the show is popular in the first place.

Let's face it, thanks to negative reviews from the likes or Mr Enter, they are going to use this as ammunition for more ratings traps in the possible future. And most of the online critics don't realize this. If they did, they would have left the show alone and not bothered with it. reply »

Yuri LowenthalDisneyAnimefan1995 said at 9:56 PM on Sat Oct 3 2015
@BioZero216 Agreed, it's true he hasn't been in any anime but due to bigger fish to fry in projects (voice over in video games Pre-lay animation and independent films) and also the rise of new voice actors in the Anime dubbing game (e.g Bryce Papenbrook, Lucien Dodge etc...) that are filling in the shoes of the older generation this makes scheduling more difficult for Yuri to handle.

On the other hand, I don't think Yuri has become a Union-only voice actor in the ranks of Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, Kari Wahlgren, and especially Troy Baker. Since he is still is able to do non-union voice work in the video game side of things (e.g. Persona, Fire Emblem: Awakening, etc...). So just like Mary Elizabeth McGlynn this makes him a Fi-Core voice actor. reply »

And Stephanie Sheh already voices Hinata and her sister, so I don't see a problem there. And I can even allow Naruto still being voiced by Maile in the Last. But in the Boruto movie?...I don't know.

@BioZero216 It doesn't matter. They'll still go on about it anyway. While TFS has re-ignited popularity with Dragonball Z at the same time I think a couple of people have sort of lost sight about what the parody is about. Not only that, but they believe a parody performance is on the same grounds as a serious legitimate performance. You can't really compare a fan parody to an actual production/dub of the show. Just doesn't translate that well to a site like BTVA which compares the many different versions from official companies/productions. reply »

Scott FreemanNCZ said at 9:18 AM on Tue Sep 15 2015
Okay, that's quite enough. I'm going to have to step in right here.

I don't mean for this to be interpreted as me accusing you of anything, but I'm beginning to notice something of a recurring pattern in your comments that I interpret as troubling.

Let's make one thing clear. What Mr. Freeman did is absolutely horrible and inexcusable. I don't think anyone should be denying that.

Separating an actor's work from their personal life? Sure, whatever, as long as you acknowledge and recognize that the person behind the work did something that is not to be swept under the rug.

The problem I've been noticing in your comments is that they come off as dismissive and defensive. It may not be your intention, but what you're doing unconsciously is trivializing an incredibly grave and damaging crime.

CatsTuxedo said previously that personal attacks won't be tolerated, and that is true. We've had to block several comments because people were making tasteless jokes or saying things that were disturbing in themselves, and advised people to tread cautiously as this is a very sensitive subject, and the slightest miswording can reflect poorly on yourself. But that doesn't excuse what Freeman did by any means.

I'm not sure what you have to gain by continually commenting on the situation like this. There's really nothing that needs to be said that hasn't already been said. Freeman may have been a talented voice actor, but what he did is as clear-cut as it gets. He directly contributed to an industry that profits on the abuse of children and is demonstratably a threat to the public. There is no excusing that and he has been condemned by the VO industry and the workforce at large. That's all there is to it. I hate to be blunt, but at this point my personal advice is to please stop commenting on this. reply »

Not to be rude... but was Young Akeno in a flashback not obvious enough? Sounds exactly like all her other little girl roles. Also anyone who watched Wanna be the Strongest in the World should've known since her Akeno voice carries over from that show's dub...

And it might surprise you to know you've got it mixed up. Akeno isn't showing range. It's more of less Bryn's natural speaking voice (watch some youtube panels or interviews with her), it's when she voices young girls that she actually adjusts her voice. reply »

@BioZero216
No offence but considering how you've been wrong before forgive me for not believing your word. Also it's "Teri" (it's spelled out for you on this site...)

From what I know she works as a librarian (when not acting) and on her twitter a month or so before BorN started dub production she tweeted a pic that her library was under going renovations.

Now depending on her position (if she's branch manager or a notable staff position) then yeah I can understand why she wouldn't be able to voice act for the unforeseeable future if she has to be heavily involved with overseeing the work progress or something.

However what you say could also have some truth to it. If she's just a regular librarian it's possible she was transferred to another library to work at (outside of Dallas) as a temp until her the work on her local library is complete. With broadcast dub schedules being as rushed as they are making frequent trips back to Dallas probably wouldn't be easy and as a temp probably doesn't have much flexibility or bargaining power to negotiate certain days off at her new work place.

Either way the circumstances suck but hopefully she can return someday as I'm not fond of "Kelly Angel" as Akeno (or any of her other work under her real name) Worst case scenario there is no season 4 of High School DxD considering how much of a disappointment BorN was or it could be 2-3 years before another season is green-lit.

There are still the numerous OVAs but considering FUNimation hasn't got them yet they probably have difficult licensing restrictions since they were bundled with reading material in Japan.

e.g. Kodansha Comics USA is releasing one of the OVAs of Attack on Titan with an upcoming manga volume but AFAIK it's sub-only. So maybe the DxD OVAs can only be released by Yen Press who releases the written works in the US (either way probably won't be dubbed) reply »

Different strokes. I found Solusod to be insufferable majority of the time. If I was supposed to care about the possible bad end for Yukine the dub didn't do a very good job.

Liebrecht was pretty good. Apprill was ok; personally I think she's an overrated and overused actress.

1) It's unfinished and it's unknown if Togashi will ever get back into it due to his frequent hiatuses (Japanese bookstores are already fed up with it and want to take it off their shelves) so maybe thats a turn off

2) Funimation or Aniplex want to focus on their "flavor of the year" anime (Attack on Titan, SAO)

Anyways, I could live without a dub as long as it's completed because it's simply too wonderful to be left incomplete. If it does get dubbed I hope Funimation pick it up cause they're the best at it imo. reply »

@BioZero216
He's alright but still below average IMO. Not trying to start a fight with anyone but I think some people (dub fans mostly) are too easily satisfied. Grelle's voiced several characters in other shows using his Issei voice before. Either fans have never watched those dubs or are too wimpy to be honest about their opinions and make a fair criticism.

The dub while still mostly enjoyable (primarily because of Jamie Marchi) isn't as good as past seasons though I will say I enjoyed some of the newcomers like Lydia Mackay as Kuroka, John Burgmeier as Loki and R Bruce Elliott as Odin. Quality of the show itself is lower too. Hopefully TNK will fix some of the animation issues for the Blu-rays but it feels like the overall budget for this season took a hit; makes you wonder if TNK thought this would be the final season (natural for sales to decline with each sequel for any franchise). DxD having 3 seasons especially for an ecchi property is very rare. Many fans will complain that there are no sequels to some of the overrated "masterpieces" they enjoy so DxD is definitely among a select group of profitable franchises. Among just ecchi franchises only the immortal Ikki Tousen and Queen's Blade have more seasons and the main reason they're profitable despite declining disc sales is because they sell a butt-load of $100 figurines targeting hardcore otaku and recoup costs and profit from this area of merchandise. A lot of fans were also upset about rearranging the adaptation order of the light novels, flying through some material at a lightning pace and ignoring other stories and then the final episodes being useless filler... If TPTB are going to do filler they should've been better or more creative at it like having nude Kuroka or Rossweisse; instead all fans got were a static eyecatcher (apparently there will be new mini-ovas with each Blu-ray volume so always still a chance for improvement I suppose).

Fact: Before the final 3 episodes DxD BorN had a rating of around 8.2 on MAL but is now sitting in the 7.8 range and will probably continue to drop. My guess is it'll ultimately settle around 7.5 A noticeable drop from DxD New's 8 and DxD season 1's 7.8

Back on topic concerning the dub the fact that FUNimation has had 3 different ADR Directors with this franchise shows they honesty don't care about consistency. It'd be a miracle if they brought back Scott Freeman and Teri Rogers to redub their characters for the DVD/Blu-ray but why would they spend extra money? They know majority of fans will still buy it. It sort of irked me in past seasons but as mentioned by others the dub script for this particular season (written by Tyson Rinehart and Josh Grelle AFAIK) tried WAY too hard to make it "hip" and "funny". The original script was already perfectly fine; shame the dub writers feel the need to validate their own sense of humor with lame jokes that are inconsistent and sometimes fall flat.

If Japanese fans aren't completely upset by this season and still plan to support it hopefully there will be a season 4. TNK said in a magazine interview (Megami magazine) that if they do make a season 4 they'll go back to canon material. Hopefully FUNimation steps up their game too and give a better overall dub like the first 2 seasons and actually has a permanent ADR Director who won't ditch to work on some other title.

Feel free to disagree with some or all that I said. Everyone has their own opinion and these were my thoughts. reply »

@BioZero216 That's certainly fair enough, considering I can't look past Ayres' accent. Sure, LK did it too, and did it well, but that's because he had extra hamminess and expert comedic skill and timing to make his performance unique. Nothing about Ayres for me feels anything separate from generic smug English villain.

For me, the 'old lady' voice was androgynous enough and worked because Frieza was one, an alien, two, a fairly androgynous looking one, and three, technically a quite old one anyway, by human standards. And it was an unique performance that had every line drip with a chilling sadism only enhanced by the rasp. reply »

@BioZero216 I'm not arguing that. As I said, I didn't mind it in the last two seasons. For this broadcast dub, though, I think it sounded too forced and unnatural, so I can't enjoy it as much as in the past. reply »
High School DxD BorNVocalChameleon said at 6:05 PM on Sun May 17 2015
@BioZero216 I agree that Josh Grelle is proving himself as Issei and Kelly Angel is improving as Akeno. However, I'm still not satisfied with many of the line deliveries and what sounds like forced "hip" talk, especially from Koneko. I didn't mind it in the first couple of seasons, but this season, it feels pretty forced. Not only that, but I think more of the lines, not just the hip talk, are delivered in a stale/unemotional level. It's probably because not only am I an actor, but I watch animated products so much, but I tend to pick up on whether or not deliveries seem natural to me. Hopefully the DVD releases will clean that issue up.

That being said, I am happy to see some new faces in the cast. I'm still racking my brain over who are voicing Tannin, Sairaorg and Rossweisse, but I think casting R. Bruce Elliott as Odin is genius, John Burgmeier as Loki is creative, and Kent Williams was a good choice for Barachiel. Even Lydia Mackay as Kuroka isn't a bad choice. I'm not sure how to feel about Aaron Dismuke as Diodora yet, but I think he could do well. reply »

@BioZero216 After episode 2 I'm pretty darn sure Lauren Landa and Phil Parson's are still definitely voicing Xenovia and Azazel. Their voices sound much more like they did in S2.

Remember the series has a different voice director, is under a slightly stricter time limit, and said voice director is also quite new to directing (though he has been an engineer for years so he's got experience), so after a years break from the series I'm not surprised some characters sounded a tad off in episode 1. reply »

@BioZero216 no he's not. The character he was playing is a minor one that only appeared in the beginning of season two. Phil Parsons not reprising his role as Azazel is even more surprising, since he was cast in Tokyo Ghoul Root A simul dub and actually appeared a bit more recently. reply »

@BioZero216 He's okay, Josh Grelle is a great VA, but Scott Freeman was literally perfect as Issei. Plus Josh leans a little more on the thick goofy side (like Yuki Kaji) for Issei's voice and it's not nearly as good as the style Scott Freeman was going for.

But like you said, we'll see of course, definitely not writing Josh off straight away. reply »
High School DxD BorNStelman257 said at 8:51 AM on Sun May 3 2015
@BioZero216 Until anything is official confirmed we can only assume.

However I think Lauren Landa and Phil Parsons have definitely returned to play Xenovia and Azazel. For some reason they sound a little off compared to how they sounded in season 2, but when they yell or get long stretches of dialogue it's easy to tell. Lauren's Xenovia sounds a lot more like Lauren's normal voice rather than the deeper more mysterious tone she used in S2, and Phil Parsons isn't quite as deep as Azazel.

I would blame this on the directing or the nature of broadcast dubs honestly. reply »

@BioZero216

If they did it would most likely be with censored video masters... As much as I like the voice acting of the dub I personally wouldn't mind waiting for an uncensored dub even if that means another year of waiting.

FUNimation has said that they'd go back and redub any changes for the DVD/Blu-ray release if there were any problems but we have yet to see any simuldub vs home video dub differences since none of their simuldub titles have been scheduled for a home video release yet.

And although a simldub for DxD BorN would have the benefit with majority of the cast being familiar with their characters already so being rushed wouldn't make a huge difference it's the ADR Direction I'm worried about. If Colleen Clinkenbeard returned (she didn't for DxD New) I'm kind of worried. The simldubs for Yona of the Dawn and The Rolling Girls have been very underwhelming. Chris Sabat can be a good ADR Director when he gives 100% but he has a bad habit of sometimes letting an Assistant ADR Director handle some of the work or letting experienced VAs direct their own performance (e.g. Dragon Ball Z games) reply »
