Gwyn Campbell in Tokyo. “Came across a store that still had art from the Dai-Yamato car insurance campaign from the early 2000’s. (While the show itself was a flaming wreck, the Leiji Matsumoto character designs were always the best thing about it imo)”.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not skilled at in depth analysis for Adventure, mostly because it’s been a while since I sat down and watched the Japanese and English dub from start to finish. I forget stuff easily, you know? So this is just chatting about general impressions of Yamato (Japanese) and Matt (English dub).
Would you happen to have a Yamato vs Matt post, or some kind of Yamato master meta post? Of the original Chosen, I've always had the most difficult time understanding Yamato (and Hikari, but that has more to do with limited information). Tri is helping a lot, but I could definitely use more info, if you're up for it <3
Hi! I’ve never seen the English dub myself, but I remember a post by @fuzzleyan when she summarised the diferences between the characters in both versions. I don’t know if there’s more meta like that going around, specifically regarding US!Matt vs. Yamato.
I’ve written bits and pieces about Yamato – e.g. here, here, here – but I don’t know if they’d be useful for you. Are there specific questions you’d like me to address?
