20 day vas challenge

Jason Marsden

  • Absolutely crazy about his voice and is the best in full-length movies.
  • He played Haku in Sprirted Away and Kovu in The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.
  • He also played Grimp a Ferengi waiter in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. 

He’s also done a lot of  works other than anime and films. You can notice him on MAD on cartoon network now. I love his voice and I fell for it in Spirited Away. He’s also quite handsome in this photograph.

;)

Vic Mignogna

  • I can most definitely listen to his voice all day long.
  • He’s one of my favorite male VAs ever.
  • He’s voiced the heroic Edward Elric in Full Metal Alchemist, Tamaki in Ouran High School Host Club, Yoshimori Sumimura in Kekkashi, and Ikkaku Madarame in Bleach.
  • He’s quite well-known and has a twitter page!

Gosh, I can really listen to him all day long. I get all fangirly when I hear it. I can never ever ever picture another VA doing Edward Elric. He will always be Edward in my eyes. And one other thing…

How do you pronounce his last name? lol. 

Johnny Yong Bosch

  • Johnny has done the best (in my opinion) in all of his works. 
  • He’s voiced as Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach and Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass. 
  • He was also the Black Power Ranger in the Might Morphin’ Power Rangers. 

He has such a distinctive voice, I can recognize it immediately. I do really think that most of his works are marvelous. I think he played those characters very well. I actually really like him as a VA.

Yuri Lowenthal

  • Yuri is from Alliance, Ohio, but resides in LA county with his VA wife Tara Platt!
  • He’s a great great great VA. 
  • He’s know for voicing older Ben Tennyson from Ben 10: Alien Force and Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass. He’s also the crazy Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto.

I absolutely adore him. He’s a wonderful VA and he goes for roles suited for his voice. I am proud of him!

Vampire Knight

In my opinion, this anime was the most horrible English dub ever. When I watched the first season, I just had to cringe every time I heard Mela Lee’s voice as Yuki Cross. Don’t get me wrong though, Vic Mignogna sounds like a god in all of his dubs, but as Zero Kiryu… he wasn’t that great. I didn’t like the fact that they had to use the same voice for his twin brother Ichiru Kiryu. Not only his voice though.. Ezra Weisz too. He didn’t seem to fit Kaname’s persona either. 

I guess I just didn’t agree with the cast on this dub. :/

(I was too lazy to find a suitable example video for you guys, I’m sorry. I just came back from a camping trip and I’m super tired, so do forgive my sloppiness.)

Megan Hollingshead

  • She’s one of the prettiest VAs. She’s naturally pretty!
  • She voiced Shizune in Naruto, Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny in Pokemon, Rangiku Matsumoto in Bleach, and Mai Valentine in Yugi-Oh.
  • She has such a gorgeous voice. I love it.

She is so pretty. I love her voice. I never knew that she was Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny in Pokemon until I thought about it. My dad used to say that he liked Nurse Joy. She’s really great. I hope she does more VA work soon.

Ranma1/2

Ranma1/2 is in my opinion is the best dub ever, ever, ever. Everyone fits their character perfectly. Sarah Strange was made for the male Ranma Saotome until they replaced her with Richard Ian Cox. I did not like him as Ranma. AT ALL. He’s perfect for Inuyasha though.. lol Venus Terzo was also perfect for female Ranma too. She has such a sultry voice, I thought it was great, but they also replaced her with Brigitta Dau. She had a similar voice to Venus, so you really don’t notice the change much. I liked her, but Venus was much better. Myriam Sirois was a great Akane Tendo. Feisty, but soft when needed to be. Robert O. Smith as Genma Saotome was good. David Kaye as Soun Tendo. Of course he was hilarious. Ted Cole as Tatewaki Kuno was so goofy. I did like Ian James Corlett as Dr. Tofu’s voice, but I liked him more as Kirby Morrow. Cathy Weseluck as Shampoo. Her Chinese accent was a bit too forced, but overall it was good.

Overall, this is best dub ever. It’s an oldie, but very good. It’s one of my favorite anime ever. I’m so excited for the new live-action show this December! I read the manga when I was growing up and I doubt that I’ll ever grow tired of watching it.

Tara Strong

  • Tara is second to my favorite VA in the industry. (since I already told you guys my number one favorite)
  • She’s one of the more versatile actresses that I adore and admire.
  • She’s done male leads. Such as Ben Tennyson from Ben 10 and Timmy Turner from Fairly Oddparents. She was also Rikku from Kingdom Hearts.
  • Tara also has also voiced Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls and just recently Harley Quinn in the upcoming new game Batman: Arkham City.

I’m looking forward to that game.

I admire her for doing male leads. She has a great voice and I hope she continues to do more in the future.
