How has this guy been in so much yet I never knew his name until now?


BioZero216 | Aug 27, 8:37 AM
@Mr_Ecchi The problem with that Bob Kane analogy is that he died long before several other actors got to take their shot at Batman. He never lived to see performances like Christian Bale or Ben Affleck.

As for Akane not wanting to look bad, directors have criticized dubs before, such as Satoshi Kon. I suppose Akane himself is the only one who knows if he told the truth, but again, the late Kon criticized dubs and even to this day is considered one of Japan's best directors.


Mr_Ecchi | Aug 22, 10:48 PM
@BioZero216

And yet there are individuals half his age in the industry who are better ADR Directors than him (Aaron Dismuke, Felecia Angelle, Amber Lee Connors, Brittany Lauda, Clifford Chapin) so yeah he sucks; it doesn't have to be a difficult job if one actually knows what they're doing.

Maybe you struggle with simple tasks in your everybody life so you're constantly impressed by everything even when done poorly. Do you get a cookie when you tie your shoelaces? Bless your parents for having award winning patience!

If you use simple logic you'd realize the director of Escaflowne was being polite. Spell it. P-o-l-i-t-e

1. Kazuki Akane probably isn't an expert of or fluent in the English language so it's not like he'd know if it was good or bad dub. Therefore better to say something positive than negative even if not genuine. It's the safe response.

2. Even if he was a master of the English language, do you realize how ugly it would look for him and the Japanese industry if he said "this is terrible, I'm disappointed you ruined my show!" Which professionals do that? Nobody who wants to remain likeable and humble. Reputation matters in the entertainment industry. People can get blacklisted or shunned over minor incidents.

3. While a creator or director's approval is a nice perk it's not the end all of everything point. Ultimately what the audience thinks matters most. An artist doesn't get to defend their work. They have to live with their choices and decisions for better or worse. One can't just accept only the good and ignore all the bad; it comes across as immature and childish.

When Bob Kane was still alive he thought Val Kilmer was the best Batman. Is Val Kilmer any fan's favorite Batman? Please shine a spotlight on them if you know any, they're a rare person.


BioZero216 | Aug 15, 8:55 AM
Great. More ignorance and disrespect from idiots who have no idea how difficult his job is. If he's such a bad director, why did the director of Escaflowne call his redub perfect? Your move.


TheOneOfSeven | Aug 13, 11:03 AM
Woah, dudes, chill out with the hating owo


Lordcrab86 | Dec 21, 2015 10:05 AM
Glad to see i'm not the only one who thinks he out right blows as a voice director. The fact that the british characters in maria the virgin have accents but the french ones don't and also casting chris rager to voice a teenage boy despite his voice being FAR from sounding young is a sure fire sign that he should just stick to voice acting instead, something that he's far better at.


Ari_the_Lioness | Oct 25, 2015 1:14 PM
Am I the only one who thinks he sounds like Stitch from Lilo and Stitch when he voice Reiji Andou from Prison School?


framefreeze100 | Sep 10, 2015 2:51 PM
Well Steven Foster, you may not be directing dubs any more but you can be pleased about the fact that Sonny Strait is now officially the worst ADR Director in the dubbing biz at the moment. 0/3 on all his broadcast dubs so far; must be great to be friends with Justin Cook otherwise would've been fired from directing duties a while ago. At least Foster produced a rare gem now and then.

Also think Jun Fukuyama is miles better as Koro-Sensei. When he's pissed off he actually sounds threatening and angry and has better overall range. Sonny does do a decent job with the friendly teacher aspect of his personality but is sub-par in all other areas. If season 2 covers the origin of the character I won't be convinced by Strait's acting to faithfully portray GoD's original personality and occupation...


Wiziliz | Sep 1, 2015 12:40 AM
The Japanese voice for Koro-sensei captures the villainous side of Koro-sensei better but the English voice captures his teacher side better. It took me a little while to get used to it but in my opinion, Sonny Strait is Koro-sensei's best voice actor!


mastereatsleep | Aug 31, 2015 2:11 PM
Ruined Andre and the Prison School dub overall is a huge disappointment. I wonder if he realizes how lucky he is that Funimation is doing broadcast dubs. Before he was just doing mainly minor roles and walla. His only big roles were reprisals and in ongoing series. It was basically only Mike McFarland casting him in anything notable. Now with the "who's available anytime, quality isn't as important" state of mind for broadcast dub schedules, Sonny Strait is now suddenly very useful. As a comic book artist he works his own hours so he's pretty much always available for voice acting or as an ADR Director (the latter which he's especially awful at). The more work he gets is actually only shining a bigger spotlight on how limited of an actor he is and he's incompetent when it comes to casting the talent for dubs he directs...
