I completely agree. The voice acting really is good for this game. All of the new VAs match their characters well, and the old ones sound good, too. It's a great localization.

There are different types of lisp. I don't recall the name for the hissing one, but, if it weren't due to the recording, you could definitely classify Milla's speech disorder as lisp. The definition of lisp encompasses all incorrect tongue placements that interfere with making exact sounds.
It's very clearly gone in this game, though.

Frankly, I thought Elle would annoy the hell out of me, but it turned out not to be the case.
Bang.

I kinda miss how intimidating Gaius sounded in Xillia 1, but now I hear the Roy Mustang in him. So that's a plus in its own right.

It's kind of weird to hear him say "Milla". He usually just prefers using "Maxwell".

I had problems with Elle at first, but she grew on me.
Other than that, everyone is pretty damn good!

The only things that bug me were either the voice actor not being given the proper direction in a few scenes, and having to deal with some weird body language and blocking but that's not the localization team's fault. Like when on the train when Jude says that he'll fight alongside Ludger, Bisley says "Impressive" very low and very quick which didn't quite fit the scene. A slower "You're quite impressive" would've fit more, but the English team is stuck with the framework of the original Japanese.

Xillia 1 and 2 just have some really weird body language, blocking, and scene cuts. I.E the scene before you fight fractured Rowen when the party gets surrounded by the disgruntled Elympions. The camera cuts to this weird scene where the camera directly focuses on Leia moving from her location to standing next to Ludger. There was very little point in it with how much "focus" it got from the camera.

It's just a result, though, of Tales changing from classic "speech bubble, press X to continue the scene" style to a more modern cinematic style with subtitles.

It's a great dub, though, like almost all these days. I think some people have an almost self-loathing attitude towards their own maiden tongue...

I read so much about Milla having a lisp in the first game, but I've honestly never noticed it.


I only noticed it when she said "Lance of Kresthnik".

Nah, it's the same.

I'm with you there. I can't even begin to tell you how much I despise people who hate dubs just because it's English. It's a very shallow way of thinking and I'll never understand it.
