The FFVII Remake is fantastic in part because of Briana White's fresh take on Aerith.
her voice acting sucked made her unlikable compared to her original VA in the jp version
My God you are so wrong. She did amazing.
i agree with u but how the Oricon response wrong?
Did we play the same game? Her performance is great!
Please. She isn't even in the same galaxy as Maaya Sakamoto.
Your right Briana White is in a whole better league then Maaya Sakamoto who is overrated.
You likely don't even know who Maaya Sakamoto is. She's literally a legend. It must be so sad to be unable to appreciate a voice acting performance just because you don't speak the same language.
Meh I don't think it's sad. I've always hated Japanese voices in anything, I could never tell them apart honestly. All the females sound like shrieking harpies that make my ears bleed lol. I'm being dramatic of course but still, English FTW!
Agreed. I hate all that moaning & heavy breathing in their voices almost every time they speak...lol.
Always thought the same too when I wasn't a huge anime fan. Once I was though, jp voices are leagues beyond any other language imo. The delivery from most jp VAs are just so amazing and you can really tell how much effort they put into them. Watch emotional scenes in anime and compare to the dubs if there exists one. Rezero death scenes, and When Supernatural Battles become Common Place - I don't understand scene for example among the thousands others out there. Video games included, xenoblade chronicles for example. But to each their own, there'll always be those that prefer either dub or sub. That hate on jp voices was unnecessary, I mean come on.
Or perhaps you are unable to appreciate English voice acting due to being a hipster purist? Besides, I'd say Maaya Sakamoto is a poor man's Asami Imai. That the former has been in more stuff lately doesn't change my mind on the matter.
@the disagrees It saddens me that those who claim to be enthusiasts of Japanese voice acting are unfamiliar with quintessential games like the Corpse Party series (some of the greatest voice acting I've ever heard in any language), and Stein's Gate (also excellent). It's not too late to remedy that. In any case, the point is, it's possible to not have a language bias when it comes to voice acting, and maybe some people just happen to prefer an English voice actor to a Japanese one. Don't lecture people about being closed-minded if you are as well.
I was more impressed with Tifa and Cloud’s voice work. I feel that Arieth’s fits a smart princess Peach. But, she does do a really good job.
Jessie is my favorite so far.
Jessie is thirsty ;)
Jessie was definitely the best female Voice wise. Hers was just 100% spot on
Curse the twitch kid that made that word popular for kids that want to think they're cool.
Yes simp, as in only simpletons use the word simp, because they think it makes them appear cool. If anything, it exposes them as sheeps lol
found the simp
Found the incel
She did an amazing job. She’s by far my favorite character in the remake.
I know you guys are going to hate cause you all gang up on anyone who says anything bad about remake, but she for real sounded like Snow White. I get Aerith is a hard character to cast, I mean they recasted the voice of Aerith for almost every game she makes an appearance in. But Brianna isn’t suited for it, i couldn’t take it seriously and actually felt nothing for when she got captured. It got better when we rescued her but they way they portrayed Aerith and the way Brianna voiced her really made Aerith look bad in this game. This is from someone who only plays dubs.
She made her loveable as hell. I actually missed her after Shinra took her.
Fresh Take? She's literally the same character as the OG game just with a voice, though I'll give props to her VA for doing an excellent job.
She's very good. Mandy Moore plays her well in KH1 as well.
She was the worst voice over in the entire game. How can you say her flat take on everything was better than Tifa or Jessie? Especially Jessie, her voice actress did an amazing job. Aerith shows she is an amatuer as there is no inflection in her voice. Watch when she talks before the final battle and it's just bad.
I liked her voice acting, but I don't think it made the role better, I would credit the directors of the game for this.
It's a lot different from Advent Children. The voice isn't much different from how the actress normally sounds. It's rather harsh and nasually. Not my idea of Aerith.
I really liked and thought aerith's VA from crises core was best. Brianna sounds fine though. Aerith from kingdom hearts wasn't good lol.
