I was about to buy this then I heard the English VA is horrible

I can't handle bad voice acting. An option to use the original Japanese voice track would make this an insta-buy for me. I guess I need to learn Japanese.

Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??

Actually, for me it's one of the high points of the game o.O

Seriously, the VA is awesome in this game.

Why not just go to you tube and searcg a video of the game? The VA sounds fine to me.

It hovers between a crappy anime and Cowboy Bebop, as far as dubs go. The main character's VActing is good.

The voice acting is fine; the actual dialogue however...it basically always straddles the border between awkward and just plain cringeworthy. Some of the lines make me question if it was actually localised by Western people at all, and not just run through an online translator.

dont believe it.

it'd be alot harder to relate to the characters imo.

subtitles are tough to read anyway; as they tend to lump multiple conversations together, and as a result you cant tell whos saying what sometimes.

there are games where i cant stand the english dubs, this is one i feel completely opposite about.
