General Gundam Voice Actor Appreciation & Discussion

The purpose of this thread is to discuss, critique and idolize the Voice Actor cast of Gundam Series. 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 humans.
    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.

My two favorites, Hiroshi Kamiya and Tōru Furuya. Kamiya's performance as Tieria in 00 is what made me stick to Japanese dubs permanetly. Talented man, hope he has more roles with the Gundam series in the future.

Agreed with Hiroshi Kamiya, hands down my favourite Japanese VA. After Tieria in 00, I recognized his voice instantly in AGE and Attack on Titan and was pleasantly surprised. One of the sexiest voices on the planet, IMO.

If you want to hear her natural accent, just goto Youtube and search:

Shizuru Fujino (Mai Hime), Shizuru Viola (Mai Otome), or Ayaka Shindo (Kyouka no Kanata)

Spoiler for Or, to make your life easier:

Akio Otsuka did a great job voicing Anavel Gato in 0083.

Even though Lacus is one of her most popular roles to date, Rie Tanaka said that she enjoys playing Meer more. I can guess that's because she probably allowed to be herself, when compared to voicing Lacus, who calls it "one of the hardest roles she played so far".

Indeed. Tanaka is not exactly known to play the reserved-type.

Same thing when Gainax cast Megumi Hayashibara as Rei Ayanami.

If so, Scott McNeil (Duo Maxwell) is definitely my favorite. Also, the random guy that shouted "HOW 'BOUT SOME EXCITEMENT...!!!" in Episode 47 deserves a mention.

Hiroyuki Yoshino, Allelujah's VA, was another great one.
