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.

I might be slightly biased though because it’s British and I happen to be British myself haw haw. Her Japanese Voice is also really cool. English voice – Classy, Japanese voice – tough girl (thug) Rig’s English voice is cool but slightly cringy. Japanese voice sounds uncool. He sounds a little unintelligent.... Jann Lee had a lot of WATCHAAAAAAA HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWATCHaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAooooo going on so there was slightly less to use. Both voices are cool 

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.

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.
