Katawa Seiyu project swings into action!

Hey all; I don't know how many of y'all still frequent the rapidly dying board, but perhaps I can breath a tiny bit of life back into it. The good people at Katawa Seiyu got together a while back with a plant to dub a complete playthrough of Katawa Shoujo. Now, on the anniversary of Katawa Shoujo's release, they've put out their first content, an introduction trailer to their Hisao, as played by Nick Bagnall. Give it a look, share what you think; I think it's pretty good!

These guys are still working on this? Well, good luck to them. I still have little faith in this project, but I'll try watching it when they're done anyways. In retrospect I'm not really sure if KS was really written to be fully voiced anyways. Regardless I still think that lack of voice acting was always a really lame complaint (a lot of good VNs don't have VA anyways...).

If you're making a game and you're gonna voice it, you're usually better off adding it from the get-go, before people start coming up with their own ideas of how they'd imagine characters to sound. Afterwards, it tends to put people off because the characters don't sound the way they thought.

People will learn to deal with it. I mean, who doesn't love George Newbern's Sephiroth or Steven Blum's Vincent Valentine? Besides, this happens all the time in book -> movie adaptations and people get over that quickly enough, so...

Have mercy on us. I'm actually frightened at how the girls will sound.

Hey, this isn't so bad.

But wouldn't a "cutesy" voice fit Emi more? She seems the most "moeblob" out of the entire case.
