Saw the movie earlier today, and had a great time. I was happy to see the theater had quite a few people in it, especially since only five seats had been reserved when I bought my ticket earlier this week. Rager was great as blackbeard, sounded enough like Cole Brown and different enough from Rager's Arlong. I thought Sengoku's new VA was good, for the short amount he spoke, sounded a bit different from Blaylock though. Sabo's new voice is great, better in my opionion, but I didn't have much of an attachment to the old one.
! The film's main appeal is the amount of secondary One Piece characters that not only appear, but also have a meaningful role in the film. Take that away and it's a pretty meh film in my opinion.
-Hina sounded the same as I remember her, even though she was recasted. So good work to the new actress on that.
I thought she sounded a bit different, but it's been a few years since I've heard it. I didn't realise she had been recasted until now though, I like the new voice.
I don't know if it was poor audio mixing on Funimation's part or the sound system at the theater I went to, but I had trouble hearing a lot of the dialog over the film's music. Was this the case for anyone else?
