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

author Harlequin Mafia   2 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
(If you subscribe you’ll know when the next one is up straight away!) *Ahem*
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.

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

English Raidou doesn't scare me at all. Marie Rose's English reminds me of Rikku from Final Fantasy X/X-2 Pretty cute but also kind of grating. Her Japanese voice is perfection incarnate. Ok maybe that's an exaggeration but theres no denying she sounds much cuter. Interestingly she sounds more ladylike at the same time. English Momiji is like an older lady joining the fighting scene with here slightly awkward politeness. Japanese is natural and sweeter. Innocence is easier to believe
