I'll just do it right now because I won't be around too much tomorrow.

BLACK CLOVER CHARACTER OF THE DAY: William Vangeance

William Vangeance, Captain of the Golden Dawn, master of Yggdrasil magic. Rival to Captain Yami who calls him Goldie Guts and best friend of Julius Novochrono. He looks and sounds an awful lot like the leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun Licht, except for his face which is disfigured by a curse placed on him in childhood. Julius gave him the weird mardi gras mask he wears everywhere he goes. He recently invited Yami over to apologize to him when the Black Clover base was attacked...

plot twist

it was actually the mangaka that was the last character because he plays the biggest role in black clover: the role of the story teller

Abby Trott was put on my radar after voicing Annette in Three Houses. She brought a ton of personality to that character. So it'll be nice to see her in another role.

Looks like the only other Toonami role she had was Julieta (butterfly eating girl) in Iron-Blooded Orphans

Edit: Oh yeah, missed she did a couple HxH characters, most notably Machi.

Three house's dub is pretty fantastic all around, why doesn't nintendo just use that team for Mario and Zelda which always have pretty mediocre VA outside of Martinet

IIRC It was done Cup of Tea (ADR director was Patrick Seitz) rather than Treehouse internal.Treehouse voice acting has yet to be more than just OK at best, I think.

Three Houses dub has parts that aren’t good and some decent voice acting. I wouldn’t call it tremendous, but compared to other Nintendo titles, it’s pretty good.

I think my problems with Three Houses dub probably just has to do with the fact there is so much dialogue, that it’s hard to go back and refine all those takes.

Yeah this is probably true. Echoes has better voice acting overall (also Cup of Tea, Wendee Lee was the ADR Director I *think* with 8-4 supervision) but that game has a much tighter cast and script.

That didn't take long. The Blurays also doesn't have frame drops if anyone was actually worried about that.

i dunno if this makes any sense, but the english version of that sound sounds almost too bad like a 'ballad', like they are trying to sound sentimental or touching and it's weird

the dub version of the song almost deflated every hype moment it was attached to.

I hope the 2super dub comes in so hot that they don't have time to dub all the songs next time around lol

The lead singer is so quiet honestly and the whole thing is poorly mixed. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Toei order considering they constantly have Japanese insert songs forced to English since BOG and even in the Super: Broly film. I think Funimation knows it's pretty bad.

The Mexican broadcast dub originally had the Japanese version too and according to some Mexican twitter users later broadcasts switched to Mexican dubbed insert songs after that. So who knows what's going on behind the scenes.

They didn't use the english version of the opening for the insert song during the U6 tournament arc

That is odd, but I think Toei implemented subtitles changes to the american names lately on the DVDs. They had previously had used the original Japanese spelling on the previous DVDs and Blu rays for Z and Kai. There has been a lot of changes recently.

Apparently Toei does have some say in the dub choices and has to approve voice picks for Super and they chose Seitz for Jiren.



In any case, I'll probably have to stick to a fan edited versions for music tracks for Kai and now a couple of episodes of Super.

Rager probably would've been a good 'heroic' Jiren voice like in Xenoverse

Seitz probably works better for Jiren's actual character though

Maybe if Bryce smoked 4 cartons of cigarettes a day his voice would start sounding like Inosuke. Otherwise it looks like he only got the role because he and the Seiyuu voiced Kirito.

Zenitsu's voice is very very new. His big claim to fame so far is Male Akira in Astral Chain. Also Brenden in Pokemon "Please Buy Our Diamonds" Masters

FINAL BLACK CLOVER CHARACTER OF THE DAY: Ben Benfunk

The hero of the realm, the noted sage of the Crimson Lions as a 4th Ranked Senior Knight. Around forty years of age this absolute legend of the battlefield uses his supreme knowledge of Copper Magic to trap, confound, and amaze his opponents. He joined with relative nobodies Brand and Eric on Team M (Mightiest, Most Magical, Massive Muttonchops) and earned a place on the Royal Knights, being the only Crimson Lion besides the captain to do so! He was sent into the heart of the Eye of the Midnight's Sun hideout anchoring a team of Luck, Noelle, and Kirsch, which he obviously leads. His first act was to save a young maiden in distress, probably one of hundreds or thousands of such deeds he's spearheaded in his long illustrious career. Many have said that if Julius Novochrono were to ever fall in battle that Ben Benfunk would be his obvious successor and some have hinted that he should just step aside for the superior in every way Ben Benfunk right now.

The best voice acted Nintendo games in rough order:

FE Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
FE Three Houses
Xenoblade Chronicles 1
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Xenoblade Chronicles 2

and I'll give an honorable mention to Breath of the Wild, which had some absolutely atrocious English VA along with some that genuinely moved me.

The Platinum Nintendo exclusives have also been top tier.
