Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

Honestly after watching the E3 trailer over and over, watching Cinderella, and more battle scenes: I can put down my original thought of Willa Holland sounding deadpan. "He's not as weak as you think.", and her Cinderella lines prove she gets much better. I'd like to think that the beginning speech was her literally just getting into Aqua's character, as to where she sounds much more into it later in.

The only one i'm still iffy on is Terra VA. He sounds like he fits the age, and less deep, but it somewhat sounds like his voice breaks in battle.

I agree with your opinion on Aqua. As for Terra... I honestly don't see a problem with it I actually thought it was great. Well... maybe if I was to be nitpicky, one of the words he said in a gameplay video was hard to understand.

Some parts were off though, like when Master Eraqus beings talking and when Terra talks to MX.

Also I find that "channeled" part from MX very very orgasmic.

What do you mean by "off"? If you mean off-synch then I'd disagree because it seemed pretty synched to me.

He meant the lip syncing was off, I noticed that too. When Terra talks to MX and when ME first starts talking the syncing is a little off.

Anyone else think that the Mickey in the japanese version sounded better than english? And that Captain Hook sounded bad-ass in the trailer? I don't get why Tinker Bell talked though, could've sworn she was mute.

It's been known for a while now that Ven is able to understand her. However, I'm not sure of the reason...

I figured it was like Peter Pan though, while she doesn't technically talk you can understand her.

It's not Tinker Bell talking, it's one of the Lost Boys.

Sounded like a female to me.

thats what happens when you are a little boy for your entire life...you don't hit puberty.
but ya it's one of the Lost Boys not Tink...the only place she talks would be in her own movies...not in the Peter Pan movies.

...Not really. I watched that scene a bunch of times and it seemed pretty well synched.

Um... all you heard were grunts from Mickey. Plus the sound effects were removed.

Tinkerbell doesn't talk, it was one of the lost boys. We already know that even when Tinkerbell talked in the crappy movies, she DEFINATELY didn't sound like a 7-year old kid.

I know they were just grunts but the Japanese ones sounded better than the English ones if that makes sense..which could just be from hearing the Japanese one first. The "Today you will be" looks a little off to me and when Terra says failed to learn it looks a bit funny to me also.

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

They sounded awesome! especially, Ven and Vanitas. Haley did a good job sounding evil. >xD Jesse sounded very like I imagined. :3 Aqua... I liked her voice but I felt like she sounded a bit flat. But she did a good job going with the sync. Terra... :3 no comments, loved it... I think he's going in my list of favorite male characters of KH. xD

Mickey... wow. Sounded like the original mickey. I know he just grunted, but he did sound like him. But I guess I'll have to wait until I hear his whole voice to really say anything more.

Equarus, sounded like I thought he would sound, very good. and Xehanort sounded awesome.

I loved the videos! I can't wait for the others!

If you guys want to see the videos, you can go to the E3 2010 virtual booth of Square enix, its on their website. http://na.square-enix.com/e310/index.html

or the bbs official site. KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep | SQUARE ENIX (Its the NA one)

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

Ven sounded great, no complaints at all. Jesse = Awesome
Terra was well done, I guess.
Mickey...I despise his character, but good job, Bret! Hope you do more in the future!
Xeha...I mean Mans...YODANORT sounded great.
Eraqus was well done, too.
Aqua was...bad, to say the least.

Aqua's voice actor sucks Xo
She doesn't have enthusiasm, aka Robot.

MX's also didn't quench my thirst for good voice actors. It's all muffled old grandpa, not evil guy.

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

How come Aqua's VA just sounded TERRIBLE during the trailer? I don't think it was boredom, I think she just doesn't like KH, or maybe Aqua...
She did not sound terrible. And if she didn't like KH then she would not be voicing the character.

I doubt she even knew what the series is before she started and if so, why would she try to sound awful on purpose. They do get paid you know.

Aqua really wasn't that bad. The only bad time she ACTUALLY sounded a little bad was when she was explaining the paopu fruit.

And are you trying to say MX wouldn't be an old grandpa? I liked the Japanese VA a bit more, but this one actually SOUNDS like an old man.

She did not sound terrible. And if she didn't like KH then she would not be voicing the character.

Thank you! Someone understands.

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

Am I the only one slightly annoyed with how people are judging the VA's?

We get 3 lines. 2 LINES from Vanitas and 1 from Eraqus, and everyone is spamgasming over how well he, and Eraqus are, while people assume Aqua is horrible (Even though many of these said she, and Terra were great originally in the gameplay videos released before E3), and then go on to think Terra is bad whilst they should realize that this is not only Willa Holland's FIRST voice acting gig, but also don't notice that she does indeed get better later in. (As thankfully showcased with Cinderella). Yes that fruit was deadpan, but it was also in the beginning where Willa was still probably trying to get into the right character for Aqua since this is her first time in voice acting world.

I can say the same for Terra as well. His voice actually fits his age, and personality instead of what he looked like compared to his deep voiced japanese counterpart. Really it's annoying as hell to see people giving Mark Hamill praise, and Vanitas VA HJO based on so little when Terra, and Aqua have much more to work with that you can easily seethe potential go from deadpan, and just sad - actually fitting the characters based on traits, characters, and their practical being. Yes HJO pulling off the voice is awesomesauce, but the way that it's being treated is do disgusting it's enough to make Ben Stein (Most monotone actor) sound like heaven.

Weren't you one of those people praising Nimoy in the trailer? As well as Vanitas?

The reason Mark and Vanitas get so much praise is because their lines were well delivered and didn't suck.

People praised Willa and Terra when they had good lines though.

I said that I didn't enjoy it, but was waiting for improvement.

Which is very hypocritical. The reason why it's so disgusting is that people loved Terra , and Aqua based on so little as their full judgement, and yet when presented with the real scenes, and emotion they turn right around then say they suck. You could have Mark, and Vanitas say their best lines in the entire game, and their delivery could be great, that doesn't mean that makes them the sauce by so little.

I'm not saying for people to turn around, and say there great, or anything. It's that people going around with sunshine, and rainbows on Mark, and Vanitas based on small criteria, whilst originally doing the same on Terra, and Aqua based on BATTLE GRUNTS? Really?, and now just raining on them while still loving it up with Hamill, and Vanitas from 2 lines from Van, and 1 from Eraqus. Meanwhile Terra, and Aqua having actual scenes, and gameplay footage.

I can bet if people saw the press release first, and then saw that Lenard Nimoy was in it that they'd think he'd be great, and then when they heard it they would've have given a better appetizer of a reception. It's just disgusting
