Not knocking anyone who likes the English ones, in fact there's a few characters who sound great in English to me. But I'm playing through the game again in Japanese voices this time and as an overall package...I prefer them. It's making for a more enjoyable experience and, to me, better fits the "anime" tone they were going for.

Bonus points for the lip syncing actually matching, though that wasn't too big of a problem for me in the past games.

No. They're squeaky and disgusting. As always.

Yes, it takes a huge dump all over the terrible ENG dub.

This. Japanese dub sounds like generic anime voices while the English voices are masterfully done for the most part.

Oh, here's a wrong, inferior opinion, ENG voices portray characters in a blatantly wrong way, as well as their emotions.

I’m sorry but any person who watches a scene with Akhos in English and actually manages to describe that as “masterfully done” I just have to laugh. A lot.

The ENG cast isn’t even the same ballpark in terms of if we’re measuring up resumes. The JPN cast has experience beyond experience in many notable shows, and their credentials sits head and shoulders above any of the ENG cast. There’s really no comparison here.

The Japanese cast might have experience but boy do they sure use it to make everyone sound like someone you've heard a thousand times before

The English dub has a few inexperienced and poorly directed actors for sure, but the majority, especially the main cast, are fantastic and bring a genuine, unique heart to the game.

I don't see how anyone can play the sub after hearing Nia. She's ten thousand times better in English
