I love JYB's work so this is a solid choice. His screams already sound much better.

Kinda weird to imagine JYB's voice on Broly but then again he's JYB so it's a good choice regardless.

Yu Narukami is voicing BROLY?!

Seriously congratulations JYB!!! You already sound loads better than Vic with just the screaming!

Sounds like an upgrade. JYB has done lots of great work. Hope the rabid Vic fans don't make his life hell.

Even before the scandal I never understood the love for him as Broly. His voice is way too weak to do screams for a character that mostly screams.
His screams aren’t schemmel good but I liked him for the nefarious and soft voice he would go for. Gotta rewatch broly again but his take there wasn’t bad either.

just to be clear though not defending the man just saying I liked him as broly.

Heard nothing but good things about JYB and he's super talented, and sounds great as Broly.
This is win-win-win for everyone except Vic, and he don't deserve a win, lol, fuckin' creep.

Also if anyone is confused as to why this is a thing, and a GOOD thing:
Oh boy, a LOT

To summarize, Vic has been accused of being a creep to his fans, including underage fans, for 15+ years now. The volume of such claims is enough that there's no way that at least one of the accusations isn't true, and I'd argue most if not all are. Back in January, due to a combination of a famous con goer being outed as a creeper and it being around the release of the Broly movie, people started talking about him again, and the #KickVic hashtag started with even more people coming forward with stories. Some of his coworkers supported these fans, then some even came forward with their own story. Rather than take culpability and try to become a better person, he sued his coworkers and Funimation (even though all Funi did was say they'd no longer wok with him). He ended up losing the case (in part due to having a poor case, in part due to having a shitty, alt-right supported lawyer that was hired via crowdfund by Vic's more gullible fans and Comicsgaters) and unless he files appeals now, he has to pay over a half a million in lawyers' fees. Oh and by showing how litigation happy he is, he's probably sealed the deal of never working with big name (for anime dubbing and game dubbing/VO work) studios again lol.

LOL I remember this anime. I was shocked as hell when I heard that shit

I also fondly remember dude shouting "BOOZE BOOZE BOOZE BOOZE"
I have, to be honest, when I read your post AND saw your name my fingers lit on fire with the speed they were typing into YouTube for a clip of Mari of either language.

Huge upgrade, good choice. They won't, but I'd love them to release a redub of the movie too.

Can't say I'm the biggest fan of the casting, but I think he's still a better voice for Broly than Vic was. Not that it matters a whole lot since most of the time Broly just screams, especially in this game.
