Infinite Stratos - Voice Actor Appreciation & Discussion
The purpose of this thread is to discuss, critique and idolize the Voice Actor cast of Infinite Stratos. Please remember that the discussion should center on their performances as professional voice actors and not on the show content (which can be discussed in the various Episode threads). Please remember this simple rule when critiquing a VA's performance or reading another forum member's critique:
Even looking at wikipedia at Charlotte's description. i think Kana and Inoue Marina's roles should have been switched, unless Kana has a new vocal range.
though i'm one of those who liked ichika's voice
it was fun seeing him getting chased by girls rather than vampires and cybernewtypes :heh:
I think this is the suitable thread to post this:
From okiura to Kuribayashi Minami (IS OP Theme) and Hikasa Youko:
Happy 10th Anniversary (Kimi ga Nozomu Eien was her debut) for Minami and Happy Birthday for Hiyocchi ワーイ♪＼(^ω^＼)( /^ω^)/ワーイ♪
Spoiler for illustration:
^ nice pic, now, i wonder if minami's gonna voice kanzashi :heh:
i'm definitely a fan of Kōki Uchiyama (Ichika's VA) !!
And I am one of Kana Hanazawa. :D

And you may notice that some of the voice cast were in the same anime titles that are listed. Remember that these are some of Funimation's anime titles they're known for.
Misato and Asuka? That...that is very surprising. :eek::eyespin:
Having seen and heard IS subbed while recognizing many of the English voice actors from Funimation and ADV/Sentai, the only one that stands out as an interesting choice would be Shannon Emerick (Charlotte). I don't think she can match the original (Hanazawa), but maybe she can prove me wrong.
All the others are very good choices, including Monica Rial (Houki) since she has voiced mature characters as well.
I'm not really having any high hopes for the english dub. I looked at their previous works and tried to "picture" them as their respective IS characters. After doing so, I feel that the voices are not going to fit the characters well. Especially for Dan and Tabane.
I think Dan should've been done by Liam O'Brien. He's well known for:
Archer (Fate/Stay Night)
Dr. Kenzo Tenma (Monster)
For Tabane, I think she should've been done by either Stephanie Sheh or Carrie Savage. Look here;
Eureka (Eureka 7)
Mikuru (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Satori Azuma (Bamboo Blade)
Hakafu (Ikki Tousen)
Miu (Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple)
Solty (Solty Rei)
Mokona (Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle and xxxHolic)
They both have the potential tone/pitch to match Tabane's JPN voice actress.
Okay, sorry about the multiple posts but I thought that I should give my thoughts in regards of the English Dub for IS.
I just watched the first episode and I have one major question...
Why didn't you let Bang Zoom! Entertainment provide the English Dub, Sentai?!!
The English voices hella don't fit the characters.
I need to see this or myself. :heh:
I only got to watch a clip from episode 5 so I haven't heard Houki or Laura's voice, but everyone I heard apart from Charlotte is actually pretty good. It's just yeah I mentioned Charlotte because I really don't like her dub voice, Chifuyu sounds younder and Lingyin is sort of the same.
Now to hunt for more clips. :cool::eyespin:
