Re: The Official VA Discussion Thread - RIP Otsuka, Nimoy, Lee

I'm hoping with it being KH3 there is more attention put on in the voice acting.

I hope so too, but considering the delivery on the trailer was cringe-worthy, I'm going to keep my hopes low.

Re: The Official VA Discussion Thread - RIP Otsuka, Nimoy, Lee

It wasn't cringeworthy...so much as it was just super flirty without even trying to be.

On Eraqus' end, he sounded less like he was lying at the beginning (like in Japanese) and more like he was just 100% innocent and hopeful. (Also I am uneasy at the possibility that he is Drake Bell even though it isn't that strange since he's Spider-Man in the animated shows by Disney...) The innocent act made it uncomfortable-sounding to me.

I thought Xehanort was fine in comparison. Diskin is great as always considering what they gave him, but at the same time I think the Okuda had a more nuanced performance.

Edit: I should note that I think that the difference in Okuda and Diskin's performances are probably also due to time...A rush job for E3 in English vs probably less hasty job to have an updated version of the lines recorded in 2014 for the JP version of the 2015 trailer...

I wasn't into it mostly because of Bell's performance for the reasons you listed. (I'm 99% sure it's him, I had literally seen him at Disneyland the week before, in line for the Matterhorn and Disney-bounding as Mickey. The boy loves Disney)

I didn't think it was that bad. But honestly, I also expect them to redo the recording for the game proper, too.

Not surprising considering his personality in general. Oh wow! That must have been an experience!

I think we just need more Eraqus to really get a feel of how he'll be as him. (And a rerecording of the trailer lines for the full game haha)

Re: The Official VA Discussion Thread - RIP Otsuka, Nimoy, Lee

I imagine the performances will be better once the actors actually have the full scene and understand the full scene instead of just given a handful of lines out of context lol

Re: The Official VA Discussion Thread - RIP Otsuka, Nimoy, Lee

Yeah, if the reincarnation theory is a Thing, then I imagine they will double up on all the VAs like that.

I really hope it isn't though. Like goodness, this series needs more characters that aren't connected to the current cast in some way. And I'd love to have a whole slew of new voice actors, too.

Re: The Official VA Discussion Thread - RIP Otsuka, Nimoy, Lee

Is her personality even similar to Kairi's? I haven't been following X super closely, but Ava just seems like the generic woman leader character who is concerned about children and the future. Kairi is like a spunky sassy teen in her dialogue.

Actually, don't know if that one's true though, Ava was all against the Keybladewar. (At least that's what I read.)
And Kairi, too, seems like someone who wouldn't go into war just like "oh well", lol.

That's a pretty low bar to clear for saying someone has a similar personality to someone else.

Most characters aren't going to go into a war like that =____=;;

True. I was talking about the similarities anyway. She also has the same color palette and stuff.

Whatever, I did not play X yet, so who am I to talk about X, anyway?

EDIT: Plus, she was the ONLY one of the Foretellers, who didn't want to go into war. *shrugs*
