Okay so to start I can actually tell you who two cast members are by ear.
Orochi is Keith Silverstein. Not sure how I feel abt him tbh. I love him as an actor including previously in one piece, and maybe it’s precisely because i’ve heard him so much and his voice is so unique, but there’s just kindve a disconnect there for me. Maybe it’ll get better as time goes on.
Yasu is Kenny Green. This is his 4th One Piece role, and while that sounds like a lot most of his roles are minor enough I don’t think everyone will notice? but he honestly fits him great imo. He was a really kindve old cooky sound to his voice that really fits his whole style and attitude.
Queen I was highly anticipating, but I have to say I don’t think I’m sold yet. Queen as a character and his original performance really stick out to me and the performance here just doesn’t so far. That said it’s not bad at all, and he really doesn’t get many scenes, so I’ll see how I feel once they get to the more fun content.
Page One is a bit hard to judge because as Zephray mentioned his voice changes a bit going from full dinosaur to hybrid, so we don’t know how it sounds normally yet, but a bit older sounding than I expected. I’ve always felt the age gap between the rest of the crew and him and the rest of the crew kindve made him a bit of a charming dork even if he’s. Awful. Hasn’t really been conveyed much so far but again I can’t really make a fair judgement yet.
That’s all the major new voices I think but one last note is that on the last episode they refer to it “Oshiruko”, when in the official subs it’s actually translated to “red-bean soup”, which is the opposite of what’s usually the case. I wonder if this will cause another discrepancy between episode titles as I believe it’s referred to in one.
I guess Toei wanted more Japanese Authenticity and or felt audiences wouldnt like red bean soup. At least its not JELLY FILLED DONUTS LOL.
And Crunchyroll's subs are no indication of what we will get in a dub. King Kai Fist anyone?
