How can this fucker be so manly with his fucking duck voice ?
Explain this to me please.
Mazinkaiser is the only good Mazinger anime. If Shin Mazinger had Hiroya Ishimaru as Kouji it might've been better, as one of the major problems with it was his new VA sounding fucking annoying.
too bad we're going to have to deal with him in all the new srws.
Kouji's original VA is the best, you plebshit. Kill yourself.
>as one of the major problems with it was his new VA sounding fucking annoying.
It's not annoying, it's overtly aggressive; but that's just the performance. When I read the manga, the voice I imagined was more similar to Shin's that the original's. That said, the original Kouji has grown on me as the lighthearted, goofy bastard he is. He's just not good at calling the attacks.
Dub Kouji would be perfect if it weren't for the fact that he couldn't pronounce anyone's name. Actually, Mazinkaiser had a pretty good dub all around barring pronounciation and Tetsuya. Manga and ADV were pretty damn good at dubs. How did Funimation end up monopolizing everything? Was it the DBZ?
>Actually, Mazinkaiser had a pretty good dub all around barring pronounciation and Tetsuya.
It was one of the better ones. I seem to remember people putting actual emotions into their roles, which is important in this sort of thing because if they don't you get New Getter.
Dr. Hell's and both of Baron Ashura's VAs were were all fantastic. They got the Saturday morning cartoon villain thing down pat. The performance on the Yumi's birthday episode was top-tier.
>OG Kouji's attack shouts are pretty weak dude.
>comparing a shonen action hero to a jester
Guys, I know you're set in your ways but goddammit you have to accept the truth.
>having an opinion is shitposting.
I didn't even say it was bad, just weak. You'd think Nagai fans on /m/ would know better, especially when we got that Italian fucker shitting up every thread.
Except it's not the truth, just some bullshit you're spouting?
The Italian you're speaking of left DP threads a while ago. The people shitting up DP threads are other people, whether you want to believe or not. You also count as one right now, but unintentionally so.
Partially, Funimation knew how to play to what was popular and would sell.
ADV's biggest stumbling block was that they were founded on the rule of 'get a bunch of stuff cheap and use the profits to splurge on a couple of high end titles where we can'.
This was all well and good back in the day when watching anime on the internet was more niche. Then the fansub boom happened.
Suddenly, people were able to see these shows for themselvs before the disc releases.
Which, unfortunately, sort of fucked a lot of ADV's system - since now people had seen these shows in advance, and so a lot of the 'got it on the cheap' stuff didn't sell like it used to.
The whole system broke down from there.
Kouji's voice sounded silly and dated before the 70s were even over. I remember when I first watched Combattler V, I was afraid that Hyouma would sound like Kouji. Thankfully he sounded more along the lines of Mazinkaiser dub Kouji.
He was also some guy in Godannar (which is in my backlog), another guy in LOGH (which isn't in my backlog), the captain of the main character's unit in God Mars, and fucking Rodimus Prime in Transformers: the Headmasters. He even played that guy that gives up Bruce Willis's identity in the Japanese dub of Die Hard.
Man gets around.
