ArcSys Voice Acting [This thread has rules now]

Recommended Posts

Words from Chao, wowies! BlazBlue Central Fiction will not be getting a dub for its English release. What do we know about the circumstances surrounding this? Aksys Games may have some level of involvement as they made a tweet discussing how the game could come out now (figuratively) without a dub, or in 6-8 months with a dub. A difficult decision was made, and the figurative now was chosen. What do we not know about the circumstances surrounding this? Just about everything else. Users are free to express their emotions surrounding this news, but I, and others, are fed up with the constant baseless theories, assumptions, and ire being thrown in all directions when very little is know about this event. So it will not be allowed any longer. The world is not out to get you, ASW is not out to get you, Aksys is not out to get you probably. Do not assume a company hates you, is trying to trick you, or is trying to give you a lesser product just because you aren't happy. You could very well be right, you know? But you have nothing to base these thoughts on currently beyond a few tweets made by Aksys. And those few tweets tell you far less.

So, whine, be offtopic, things like this will get your post deleted without question. Be smart, use the things you know or the past instances to discuss your emotions. Don't just spout "these greedy bastards trying to cut corners! I gave you seven years of my life, you OWE me this, company! I am a loud consumer!"

Since the BBCP general thread has been hijacked by this topic one time too many, I suppose it deserves its own thread over here. Feel free to discuss your favorite voice actors, wonder about unannounced English VAs, compare the voice-overs of different versions of the game, etc. Just keep it civil and follow the rules.

Now, does anyone have a good list of all voice actors from all ASW franchises? Behind the Voice Actors is missing quite a few.

Random Junk/Trivia:

---Joji voices Hellsing, I'd say that makes him perfect as Sol.

---Takeshi Kusao voices Capricorn Shura in recent Saint Seiya, along with Parn in the Lodoss series, also Mao in Code: Geass

---Satomi Koorogi voiced Baiken in GG1...she voices Chi (the kitten) in Chi's Sweet Home, also Menchi in Excel Saga, Nina Tucker in Fullmetal Alchemist.

---Yuko (Millia) has a perfect attendance, but also voices a character in Neo Ranga IIRC.

---Kaneto Shiozawa voiced Gray Fox in Metal Gear Solid, but as of GGX Zato was scripted to die and become Eddie (even before Shiozawa's death). Takehito Koyasu voices Zechs Merquise in Gundam Wing and a few other characters in other Gundam Anime (Gundam Seed as well).

---Hideyuki Anbe WORKS for ARC System Works and was an original member of Team NeoBlood, he was the Director of Hard Corps Uprising...not bad for being Potemkins' original VA...also did work on BlazBlue.

---Takashi Kondo was GGX's announcer and not just Faust and Potemkin...he also does miscellaneous voices in the Drama CDs I think.

---Takeshi Miura composed music for Silent Hill and Resident Evil games (Chipp's VA)

---Keiichi Nanba (Axl's VA) voices KOF characters and also voiced the anime version of Ryu Hayabusa in Ninja Gaiden at one point.

---Chizu Yonemoto voices various characters in the Dynasty Warriors games.

---Junichi Suwabe (Venom's VA) voices Archer in Fate/Stay Night and Relius in BlazBlue (Unlim Relius has Venom's Dark Angel as a continuity joke).

---Norio Wakamoto (Johnny) voices Chaos in Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Bison in Street Fighter, Yoshimitsu in Tekken/Soul Calibur and is a Black Belt and former Police Officer...don't mess with him.

---Katsuaki Kobayashi (Testament's current VA) was a Television Drama Actor (dunno what all he did though).

---Kazue Fujita (Dizzy's VA) voiced an Operator in the original BlazBlue Calamity Trigger intro, and also voiced a few extras (Linfan/Gii) in the Drama CDs.

---Hiroko Konishi (Bridget's original VA) was the original voice of Morrigan in Darkstalkers.

---Iemasa Kayumi (Slayer's VA) has been voicing old guys for a long time, and is likely going to retire IRL.

---Yuji Ueda (Zappa's VA) voices Strider in Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 and a whole host of other anime characters (notable for Keitaro Urashima in Love Hina and the founding president in the Genshiken series).

---Kikuko Inoue (I-No) has voiced Belldandy in the Oh My Goddess anime/movies, also voices Hrist/Ahly in Valkyrie Profile 2 and "The Boss" in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

---Takuya Moritou (Justice/Chipp) did the really cool 'cutscene' with Justice in the first GG, he's part of Team NeoBlood.

---Yumiko Ogawa (Justice) did April as well.

---Issei Miyazaki (Sin) was the child actor Gen in "Barefoot Gen" (about World War II).

---Chie Sawaguchi (Valentine) was Niece in Record of Lodoss War, and Pero in Big O, also Lilith Eileron in the Tales games.

---Hiroki Yasumoto (Raven) also voices Crow Kuruwaba (ironically the same bird-like name? Coincidence?).

---Toschimichi Mori (Paracelsus) is BlazBlue's creator/lead artist.

---Takayuki Ideriha (Judgement/Raymond) is the director of Guilty Gear Judgement.

---Tomokazu Sugita (That Man current VA) voices Ragna=the=Bloodedge in BlazBlue (mind = blown).

Random Junk/Trivia:

---Hiroko Konishi (Bridget's original VA) was the original voice of Morrigan in Darkstalkers.

Actually, Hiroko Konishi was the original voice actress for Lilith before Yuka Imai. Morrigan's original VA before Rie Tanaka was Yayoi Jinguji.

It's also worth noting that Raven's current JPN VA was also Azrael in BlazBlue and Guile in the Street Fighter games; and that Joji Nakata is the official(?) JPN VA for Albert Wesker beginning with MvC3. To add on to the list of trivia, here's something I would like to contribute.

---Takehito Koyasu (Eddie's current VA) was notable for the voice of Zechs Merquise in Gundam Wing. In addition to Zechs, he was also Gym Ghingham in Turn A Gundam and Mu La Flaga in Gundam SEED to name a few. He also provided the voice of Shingo Yabuki in the KOF games as well as the announcer for KOF 2003, and is the most recent voice actor to voice Dio Brando (AKA DIO in Stardust Crusaders) in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure media franchise.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but here goes:

I was going through Rachel's battle voicetracks because Kana sex voice, and came across the Tsukuyomi activation code in three different audio files:

"Dai zeroshiki kousoku kikan kaihou, jigen kanshou kyosu houjin tenkai. Tsukuyomi Unit, kidou"

I... don't think I've ever heard this besides from the CT anime cutscene when she does activate it, is it some unlimited quote or something? Or is it unused, presumably along with a few other lines like "Cardinal Gloriosa" and "Blue Rose" that are located just before the Tsukuyomi chant?

I went ahead and picked up U.Rachel a couple of times to see if she has any different battle intros like Hazama/Ragna when they activate BB, but didn't come across anything helpful. Any ideas?

It's an unused quote. Supposedly they were thinking about using Tsukuyomi as a new DD for Rachel, but scrapped it.

That's a shame. Actually, ditching anything recorded by Ueda Kana is a shame. :v: That one sounds cool too, so double the grief.

It would be nice if they used it during her OD activation, but I guess it's a tad to long for that.

I think Guilty Gear and Hellsing are the only two works that include both Wakamoto and Jouji (and as major characters, nonetheless).

Much as I hate to say it, I wouldn't call Johnny a major GG character... at least as far as the overall plot is concerned. Still, I suppose it counts. If Johnny makes it into Xrd, he and Sol should have a special HAM-filled intro for lulz' sake (possibly with some manner of Hellsing reference as a nod to their previous onscreen encounter)

Iemasa Kayumi (Slayer) is also the voice of the narrator in FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (as well as a certain character who appears after a certain point in the series) which never fails to crack me up. Throughout the first arc I always found the "Alchemy 101" segment incredibly entertaining simply because I imagined Slayer to be the one actually reading it.

Takehito Koyasu (Eddie) was also in Hellsing, as Luke Valentine, FMAB as Scar's brother... and in many, many other animes. last I checked the guy is famous for having a particularly substantial number of roles to his credit. One might say he's the Kevin Bacon of anime.

Prior to GGXX, Kikuko Inoue (I-No) had a reputation for roles that fell mostly within (if not, close to) what is known in moonland as the "Genki Girl" archetype. Given her lack of experience in the field of villainy, the role of I-No was a big step for her as an actress, and in her audio interview for AC+ she still described the character as "scary". Also, in FMAB she voices Lust. Despite the time lapse between the two roles, the characters sound practically identical. Hardly much of a surprise given how similar they are, so I can't help but suspect that her experience with I-No helped out a great deal in her work recording Lust's lines.

Kevin Conroy should be english VA for Kagura.

Because Batman, that's why.

Either Kevin Conroy or Troy Baker (Yuri voice ToV, not Joker voice)

I can definitely see Troy Baker as Kagura.

Somehow, I'd picture Liam O'brien playing him.

Troy Baker as Kagura isn't surprising considering how rapid his track record has gone up this year.

It's more difficult to think about who will play Azazel. Either Aksys will sneak Ian Sinclair (Toriko) in or have David Lodge (Kenpachi, Jiraiya) in.

So I got a good look at the CP arcade credits (thanks to it being available on Nico).

Julia Yermakov did the announcer voice in CP.

...If she's Japanese then she speaks damn good english.

As a joke, I thought that the three initial new characters, Amane, Azrael, and Bullet, should be voiced by Billy West, John DiMaggio, and Katey Sagal respectively.

As a serious wish, I think Kevin Michael Richardson would make a great Azrael. For some reason whenever I think of Azrael speaking English, I think he'd sound like Sarevok from the Baldur's Gate series.

I wanted gerald C. Rivers, we didn;t get our wish since we got Douglas for azrael according to his site.

I''ve been thinking that yuri lowenthal would VA amane parttly due to the color palette he has of MC of Persona 3 (Yuri voiced him in the NA localization of) Kagura would be Johnny Yong Bosch (Why the fuck not?) Azrael would be christopher Sabat, lastly Bullet would be Wendee Lee (i think she VA'd rukia from bleach and Katherine from Catherine)

Welp, RIP. Not that I would play with English voice anyway, but who knows, maybe Azrael sounding like Richard Nixon will be really funny.

English Wesker in Marvel sounds like Richard Nixon. If you don't believe me, listen to Nixon say "I'm not a crook", then listen to Wesker say "you are nothing to me!" Magneto has this same problem but more British.
