I’ll likely be offline today and most of tomorrow—i’m finally moving into my new apartment~! :D
So I’ll reblog a few things later, but I won’t be responding to any messages until I get settled tomorrow afternoon.
Some of these VAs are pretty funny, when you find out what they’ve done.
Like, how Lest is Eren Jaeger.
Or how Volkanon is also Nekozawa.
Orrrrr how Amber shares her voice with Kyuubey.
Xiao Pai is Jenny from My Life as a Teenage Robot.
Anyway, though, I personally have nothing against Vic Mignogna. I think he does a fine job, and he seems best suited for flamboyant characters anyway, which is why he fits Vishnal fairly well imo.
Heh, I don’t think people are genuinely upset about it, per se.
I think it’s mostly that Vic Mignogna is the go-to voice for TONS of males in anime (anyone from Tamaki Suoh to Ed Elric… well, Vishnal!) and that his voice is VERY distinctive. The only moment I can think of where his voice isn’t super-distinctive is when he voiced Greece in Hetalia.
Whereas many other VAs aren’t as distinct, so they don’t get as much flack. Or, heck, some people just might not like his voice acting.
And his name is more memorable…
yukininha asked you:Hello! Er, I don’t know how the blog works, so I’m asking out of nothing.. May you draw Frey and Kiel? I just LOVE Kiel! Sorry if I seemed weird!
ahaha sure =v=
wow i managed to draw something other than Reofure wow where is the confetti//slap
In light of the popularity discussions on fyeahrunefactory…
Here are the results (# of fanart entries) when I searched RF4+character name* tags on pixiv:
- Dylas 381
- Leon 307
- Doug 179
- Kiel 158
- Vishnal 127
- Arthur 126
- Dolce 204
- Amber 167
- Xiao Pai 128
- Margaret 80
- Forte 73
- Clorica 46
Compared to the Japanese poll posted on gamefaqs, the bachelor ranking isn’t that different, while the bachelorette rankings got switched around a bit. Clorica is still in last though.
Bear in mind that a lot of fanart isn’t tagged of all (or any) the characters they feature, a zealous and productive fanartist can skew results, some people collect lots of fanart in one entry while others spread them out, etc.
But it does seem like the bachelors are more popular than the bachelorettes.
And Arthur is in last again orz
*in jp. ex. ルーンファクトリー４ レオン
I thought Doug looked pretty young too, which I think is why I wasn’t so bothered by Kiel either, if that makes any sense. Because Doug’s concept art makes him look much older than his in-game art. I don’t think they’re as young as people have made them out to be, tbh.
And Doug’s personality is a bit immature, which could have something to add to the young-ness.
Regarding Vishnal, I think some people couldn’t get past the fact that he was voiced by Vic Mignogna. |D
And I’ve seen a number of people on here who quit pursuing Vishnal because the other bachelors seemed more interesting to them. *shrug* To each their own, I guess.
Weeeell, that depends.
Here on tumblr, if I had to guess (this is hard, because very few people really mention the girls at all), I’d say
5) Xiao Pai
As far as that Japanese poll goes, however, the answers are strikingly different.
5) Xiao Pai
6) Clorica (whose voice in the Japanese dub was apparently very unfitting)
RUNE FACTORY: tides of destiny
(Kiel is only in 10th place, which isn’t bad at all. c:)
The younger characters seem to have more appeal in Japan than in the US, too.
