EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Akira Voice Compare VC section we have a VC for the 4th member of Kaneda's gang (well that was actually named)... KAI! In the old Streamline dub of the movie Akira Kai was voiced by Bob Bergen. I was pleasantly surprised with Bob's work on the role as he does a fairly natural young male voice that does suit the role pretty well. Bob's performance as Kai worked pretty well too, in which if anything else its a lot better than Bob's work as Masaru I will say that much. Bob's work as Kai is a pretty good example of the Streamline dub of the Akira.
Now for the Pioneer/Geneon dub of the movie Akira, Anthony Pulcini gets to take over the role here. Anthony's voice for the role does suit the role pretty well (granted its a bit more nasally but it still does work for the role pretty well). Anthony Pulcini also did a pretty good performance as Kai which did work pretty well with the role and is a decent example of the Pioneer Dub of the movie. Overall both of these guys did pretty alright for the role but I must admit that Bob's work on the role is slightly more memorable in the role.
