    @Leyana I am... surprisingly accepting. I'm not unfamiliar with the name, even though I don't really follow the Eng VA scene. Also, looking at her roles, I can't say I've actively disliked any of her performances I'm familiar with, even potentially ear-clawing roles such as Merle in Funi's new dub of Escaflowne (with the understanding that, of course, Merle will be Merle...). Sure, she's no Kira or Monica... but the choice doesn't hit my rage button either.

    Funimation posted the first trailer:
    https://youtu.be/lf6Aj3PjOIo

    Nagato, Fubuki and Akagi sound fine but Kongou... I think I'm going to hate Actually English Kongou




    Wo-san... why won't you come to my base?

    You don't get it do you? It's a SHIP that launches Ship GIRLS! It's going to cause a rift in the space/awesome continuum!!

    I think this goes to show just how varied Japanese VA are expected to be, being able to pull off multiple characters without sounding the same; while american ones they just hire another actor to do the role instead. English VA don't have the ability to sound different so they sound exactly the same series to series frequently which is why people call dubs awful.

    it also begs to question just how many (extra) VA they are going to pull in, seeing as a lot of shipgirls have the same VA.

    That trailer. The disinterest. The lack of vocal inflection in the narrator. I had to abort the trailer after less than ten seconds because it was giving me goosebumps due to how bad the voice-acting was.

    Furthermore, the series isn't relevant without the ability for large western audiences to play the game. I'm surprised that Funimation thought that it would be worthwhile to release it.

    Edit: I suppressed my nausea to watch the trailer.

    "based off of the hit game phenomenon"...........that was never released outside of Japan, and still requires a VPN to register for, which involves faking personal information.

    Fubuki: appropriate, sort of.

    Naka: Can't tell

    Poi-boat: Can't tell.

    Nagato: Meh. That being said, her english voice is closer to her actual in game voice, which is considerably softer than her animated JP voice.

    Kongou: ................................................Sh e's supposed to be British. Where's the British accent? Nao did a better job here.

    Akagi: Not appropriate at all. She should have a voice that's closer to her Japanese CV, and emphasizes the depth of her character and spirit. Tirado's voice is just too soft. Someone closer to Tara Platt (Vert's VA in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series until Megadimension Neptunia VII) would have been more appropriate.

    As a general rule I don't watch anime in english anymore. One reason is because of the release times (2+ years). The other and primary reason is that, other than legacy shows such as Outlaw Star, Trigun, Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Full Metal Alchemist and Full Metal Panic, english voice acting simply isn't character appropriate anymore. It's also really bad these days. Compare the CV for Miho in Girls Und Panzer versus her english VA. I had to force myself to watch the english version of Girls Und Panzer because how bad the voice acting was. I'd only bought it in the first place because I liked the original show so much.

    That should answer your question :)

    Well it's not necessarily the fault of the english VA's. After hearing the japanese voices for 3 years almost every day it's simply weird seeing those characters and hearing a different voice.
