DOA5LR English Vs Japanese Voice Comparison (Part 2) (Helena, Kokoro, Bayman)

author Harlequin Mafia   3 years ago

As I mentioned in my Fan Service and DOA5 Review videos this game allows you to choose what language ALL of the characters speak (English or Japanese). This is quite common in video games that are based off animes where the fans have come to expect to hear a Japanese voice despite not being Japanese themselves.
In this series I compare all of the character voices (English and Japanese) to see which sounds the best. I’ve included entrance poses; win poses (Not all of them) and some taunts.
This series is taking centuries to record and edit but I hope to finish it all this week 
Look forward to it

I have also added captions for my personal opinion on the voice acting in the top right hand corner of the video. Here is the caption key:
YES – I love this voice acting
YES! – I’m CRAZY about this voice acting! Perfection!
NO – This sounds bad in my opinion...
NO! – This sounds awful! Cringe fest! Oh God!
No Caption – I don’t like or dislike it. It’s ‘OK’
There are some characters that I have not included:
Ein, Phase 4 – Clone characters
Alpha 152 – Doesn’t speak lol
Pai Chan, Sarah, Jacky, Akira – Guest characters (They will always speak their native language Eg Pai will always speak Japanese even if English System voice is on)
My General Notes on the characters that feature in this video:

Helena’s English voice has a European zest that is really pretty and suits her looks. Her Japanese voice is also REALLY classy. I’m fine with both really
Kokoro’s English voice sounds too young. Her Japanese voice is beautiful and graceful.
Both of Bayman’s voices sound threatening. They’re neck and neck I think.

Eliot....In my opinion Eliot's English voice is the archetype of the kind of English voiceover that I hate in dubbed Anime. Its just really hard to listen to... I know I may sound biased but that's just my honest opinion. His Japanese voice more accurately portrays his image of a bishounen (Pretty Boy) as it's quite sweet and polite. Tina's English voice is easily the best of the English cast. Her accent fits perfectly with her image so she just sounds perfect. Her Japanese voice comes across kind of ladylike and cute instead of sassy which is at odds with her character design.

This video is meant to shed some light on what Helena is capable of in ver. 1.07. It goes over B&B setups, Critical Burst setups, Power launcher combos (indoors and outdoors), as well as environmental combos. All the combos displayed in the video CANNOT be stagger escaped, which means that your opponent is put in a situation where he is forced to guess and risk a hold. I hope you find this video both informative and entertaining. ^^ Special thanks to: Artist:Reptiles Combo Advice: UprisingJC 日本語バージョンこちらへ: http://youtu.be/kZLZflEUx_k

Honoka's English voice is cute but leaning on the side of 'trying too hard' Japanese Honoka is easily the cutest voice I've ever had the honour to experience lol

Brad’s English voice is really grating. He sounds more immature than the Japanese Version. Mila is interesting because sometimes her Japanese voice sounds better despite her not being Japanese. Her English voice is cool and her Japanese voice is cute.

His Japanese voice reminds me of 'Usopp' from One Piece lol. I suppose this could be a compliment since I love this anime but in this game its almost unbearably vexing. Unlike her half sister, Ayane's English voice isn't so great. It's more on the edgy rebellious size (which fits with the character) but her lines often come out forced and awkward ruining the edginess. Her Japanese voice has an almost ladylike quality whilst still being sassy. Hayabusa sounds AMAZING in both languages. I still prefer Japanese though of course but I believe he's one of the most balanced out of the whole roster.
