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:
  • Don't take it personally.
    In other words, you’re free to disagree with another person’s opinion, but don’t flame them if they offer a well written and well thought out analysis that differs from your own opinion. Keep it civil.

  • Voice Actors are human.
    Yes, it’s true. They’re human. Therefore, don’t just indiscriminately rip them and their work apart as if they’re inorganic objects. You don’t have to praise them non-stop, but be thoughtful in your criticism.
This thread might duplicate some discussion in the Episode threads, but it can also serve to demystify various VA roles, disseminate VA information (VA Bios, VA photos, etc) and provide cast information of various types as well as discussion about performances.

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.

- Well, after having watched the show, it was actually quite appropriate, wasn't it?

agreed, it was quite fitting

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

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♪

Watch Funimation's anime titles in English. Most of the voice actors in IS's English cast had done work (and still doing work) for Funimation's anime titles. Look here;

Josh Grelle (Ichika):
- Akihisa (Baka and Test)
- Ren (Kaze no Stigma)
- Kenichi (Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple)

Monica Rial (Houki):
- Misuzu (Air, TV Series)
- Simca (Air Gear)
- Jo (Burst Angel)
- Felli (Chrome Shelled Regios)
- Miria (Claymore)
- Daedalus (Heaven's Lost Property)
- Asa (Shuffle!)

Shannon Emerick (Charles/Charlotte):
- Kei (Gantz)

Britney Karabowski (Cecillia):
- Yamada (B Gata H Kei)
- Mifi (Chrome Shelled Regios)
- Riful (Claymore, Ep. 17)
- Ikaros (Heaven's Lost Property)
- Ayu (Kanon, 2006)
- Lisianthus (Shuffle!)

Hillary Haag (Rin):
- Shiraume (Air Gear)
- Teletha (Full Metal Panic)

Tiffany Grant (Laura):
- Asuka (Evangelion, TV Series and Films)
- Marta (Full Metal Alchemist)

Luci Christian (Chifuyu and Ran):
- Haruko (Air, TV Series)
- Ringo (Air Gear)
- Ophelia (Claymore, Ep. 12-14)
- Kaname (Full Metal Panic)
- Asuna (Negima!)
- Tenma (School Rumble)

Cynthia Martinez (Yamada):
- Kanna (Air, TV Series)

Allison Keith (Tabane):
- Misato (Evangelion, TV Series and Films)

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.

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:
Jushiro (Bleach)
Archer (Fate/Stay Night)
Gaara (Naruto)
Dr. Kenzo Tenma (Monster)

For Tabane, I think she should've been done by either Stephanie Sheh or Carrie Savage. Look here;

Stephanie Sheh:
Orehime (Bleach)
Eureka (Eureka 7)
Mikuru (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Hinata (Naruto)

Carrie Savage:
Satori Azuma (Bamboo Blade)
Hakafu (Ikki Tousen)
Miu (Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple)
Kaede (Shuffle!)
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.

Yeah, but I was right about my 'assumption' in one of my previous posts...

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.
