Voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, but they didn't think his voice was going light enough. So we got JYB.

Then we'd have two mech shows where the main protagonist is voiced by Yuri.
That's kinda funny.
But if you call Code Geass a mech show, then JYB has two.

Yeah I remember hearing about that too. I think that was in the abone dubbing documentary from a few years ago.

Yeah, Bosch posted about it once. Lowenthal had done up to Episode 13 before Bosch was called to replace him to do a higher voice. As a result, Bosch had to record 13 episodes in just a few days (which he says was hell to do, and wishes he could go back and redub those episodes, because he feels his performance suffered as a result).

You can still hear Lowenthal's voice in one clip- at the end of the episode where the rest of Gekkostate pulls a prank errand on Renton, Holland is watching the footage at the end. They apparently forgot to switch out Lowenthal's voice clip with Bosch's.

That ended up being JYB's best role acting-wise

I'd go with Lelouch man.

Lelouch was well within his range and he really didn't have to stretch for it

Renton was something he had to get out of his comfort zone for and he did really well with it

I had to stop watching the dub because he sounded awkward as Renton

Not what I'd call well

Again, he had to catch up in a short amount of time. No surprise he took longer to sound confident in the role.
