I wonder if we could get the old actors to re-record the voices for a hack =P
This pisses me off to no end. Every time I watch Sonic X I think of how much better it would be with the games' voice actors. Every time I watch the SA miniseries, I think of how much I would love to shove my remote down Gamma's throat. And now this.
As for the whole "target audience" thing, Sega should know not to be worried about disorienting the kiddies. If this...
...can happen, then why does Sega need to worry about the voice actors? This audience seems un-disorientable (if you can understand that). Besides, the only crappy voice actors since Sonic Adventure, IMO, have been Tails in Heroes and (to a much lesser extent) Knuckles in SA1.
All I have to say about this voice actor bullshit is that 4Kids could have at least got the Kaiba voice actor from Yu-Gi-Oh! (that's right, the show I haven't watched in years, yet I still remember what the characters sounded like) to do Shadow.
Things like this make me glad that Geneon got Viewtiful Joe.
Oh, and by the way,
Don't feel bad. I'm still trying to figure out how to make a Protoman costume, and I'm only a few months younger than you.
That's becoming more and more obvious in my Calvin and Hobbes work...
It's hard to match it.
I heard Shadow's voice on Episode 52. Apart from being done by Jason Griffith (who also does Sonic), Shadow actually sounds like he's voiced by Eric Stuart.
Anyway, I'll put a list of the VA's for the main Sonic X characters here... (except Chris and other humans besides Eggman of course) as well as what they are most well known for acting in.
Jason Griffith (Usopp - ONE PIECE)
Mike Pollock (Professor Arthur Hawkins - Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Amy Palant (Kayla - Fighting Foodons)
Dan Green (Yugi/Yami - Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Various G.U.N. voices
Lisa Ortiz (Lisa - Pokemon 3: The Movie)
Ed Paul (Giovanni - Pokemon: Mewtwo Returns)
Jack Quevas (No information given.)
Megan Hollingshead (Mai Valentine - Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Rebecca Honig (Ruby - Gall Force: New Era (OVA)
No information pertaining to Vanilla can be found. Same goes for the Chaotix.
You know, other than just switching to Japanese voices and turning on the English subtitles, that is the one other good idea I had. Good to see that we people think on the same kind of wavelength.
So far, it actually doesn't seem that bad. They may be getting different voices, but they'll still sound pretty similar according to Shadow Fire's list.
*pictures the Sonic games being a lot different, with Knuckles duelling Shadow*
Shadow: Now, my Blue Eyes White Dragon! Attack his Dark Magician!
Knuckles: *starts laughing* You haven't learnt yet, Shadow! You've activated my trap card! Now, Dark Magician! DESTROY HIS BLUE EYES!
*Blue Eyes White Dragon is destroyed by Dark Magician*
HA, funny SF. Though I haven't seen a full episode of Sonic X for months, I caught a glimpse on saturday, apparently a new character was added, another voice.
They should hire an English cast for European releases.
Eggman: I say, old chap, would you like some tea?
Sonic: Certainly, old bean!
Eggman: And we can calmly discuss my plan to destroy you.
Sonic: I am afraid I must interject, my good friend. I cannot possibly allow your plan to come to fruition.
Eggman: Then it is a duel!
Sonic: Quite so!
LMFAO! Please allow me to continue!
Eggman: *reaches back for a plate* Fancy a crumpet, old chap?
Sonic: Of course, old bean! Tea and crumpets! A most splendid combination!
Eggman: Yes, old chap! That they are!
Sonic: *eats a crumpet* How delightful! I've been longing for some top grub for quite some time now.
Eggman: More tea?
Sonic: Please, my delightfully plump arch-nemesis.
Forgive the double post, but I couldn't resist!
Sonic: Allo Dr.Eggman! Est-ce-que je pourrais avoir des escarogots, et du caviar s'il-vous-pla?t?
Eggman: Oui monsieur!
EDIT: I am SO sigging that!! :D
LOL I seriously maintain that Sega should hire people from the community as writers. The ones they hire now are, shall I say......lacking?
The last Sonic X episode I was was when Chris Hi-jacked sonic after everyone went back to there world. How many new characters showed up since that episode? I guess I should wawch on Saturday for my opinion.
AND THANK GOD Tails from heroes is gone. He sounded like a 3 year old. They should just say "Fuck off" to the voice actor they will have for Tails and use Tails' VA from Sonic Adventure.
Appearantly Tails's voice actor in SA's voice changed and he is no longer able to do the part.
Also, concerning the most retarded petition of all time, I am here to debunk a few things and just make fun of some of their "arguements". :P
*Buzzer* WRONG. This was done to keep the voices consistent between the Sonic X and the games so some five year old kid doesn't go "HAY DAT NOT SONIC X U FAKAR " when they hear Ryan Drummond, who was playing Sonic's part before they were even born.
Haha, I just LOVE the grammar in that (or lack of it).
Worst. Capitalization. Ever.
Hey, guess what, they AREN'T bringing back the old VAs, not for now anyway, which makes this whole petition redundant.
I believe I already pointed this out.
I know, but it is still a falsity in the petition.
Yup. Not surprising since Corey Bringas was only about 15 at the time... Now he's 20... only a few months older than I am, but his voice apparently changed not too long after SA2, which is why Sonic Team got a new VA for Tails. I must say however, that I do like the Japanese VA for Tails on Sonic Heroes more than the SA/2 VA. She supplied his voice in the Japanese Sonic X, and I thought it made Tails even cuter...
As I said, I don't have a problem with 4Kids VA's... except Cream's... If she's in the game, and her 4Kids VA does the voice, I'm gonna die...
Oh, wait! It won't be on a Sega, so I'll never play it anyway... WAHAHAHAHAHA!
Well, from the voice in the Shadow trailer, the new guy does an ok Shadow voice. I just hope the rest of the voices are the same.
