Ever wonder what the Japanese voices of Final Fantasy XIII sound like compared to the English ones? Here is a comparison.
Is it weird that I mostly prefer the English voices? I'm not a fan of Vanille's accent (and I'm an Aussie. Go figure) and Lightning's voice is pretty flat, but overall I liked the variety in the English voices and think they all did a pretty good job. Although the script isn't the best. Sometimes it's over-the-top melodramatic, to the point where it's almost funny.
I've played both the English and Japanese versions of the game. Actually, most of the English voice actors do an excellent job, on par or better than the Japanese actors---other than vanille, to which her Japanese voice is MUCH less annoying Japanese.
When its in Japanese I feel like im waiting for the tenticals to show up. :/
I believe the Asian version has both JP and English... having the option to choose is always nice especially when everyone is happy. I have say that I'm used to the English voices, but I prefer the Japanese one (especially since some the of the dialogue in the game was awkwardly translated...) At least the acting in English wasn't bad... I haven't caught up with all the Japanese companies and voice acting, but is there anyone who does a bad job anymore? (I'm talking about the richer, more well known ones, smaller publishers don't count...)
I like the Japanese song, but the english version sounds better.
Japanese sounds WAY more epic, like at 0:49.
Japanezu!!!! I mean the girls sound either more excited, more sophisticated or even in some cases, more sexual.
