this is so weird: 
 
  

  
 
  
  
Seeing Yu talk in the anime was a bit of a mindfuck, but seeing the portrait from the game? Man.  Hope they give him more expressions than his blank :| face. Less crazy news: Animated cutscenes! Glad to see they won't just be relying on stills and portraits like I originally thought.

I think the stranger part is how their mouths move in the non-anime cutscenes. That shit ain't right!

Is it weird that this just makes me want to play this game less?

lol, I dig it. Gives me Fire emblem vibes! It does look mad awkward.
 
It seems like Yosuke is giving Charlie some shit about his obsession with Nanako near the end there. Awesome.

@mutha3:

Social Links give me enough Fire Emblem vibes in Persona 4. (I'm aware that this game probably won't have Social Links, but I'm just saying.)

Did you know, the MC of persona 3 was voiced by Yosuke?

MC could always talk. He said persona's names. That's totally talking!

Lol at people that still call Yu "Charlie".

Kidding aside, it doesn't surprise me, as the animated portraits fall in line with ASW's BlazBlue games.

I'll only be upset if the English language Charlie isn't voiced by Vinny and Jeff simultaneously.

While he doesn't "talk" in the sense that he has no voiced dialogue in the game, he certainly has dialogue and he certainly speaks (i.e. when he calls on persona during battle) so it's not like they has no voice in the game at all.

It's not that weird, he spoke all the time in the anime. What's going to be weird is him speaking in the english verson. Personally I like his japanese VA and I don't know how I feel about an english VA for him.

That's because his name is Charlie. The Endurance Run is canon and I won't have anyone suggest otherwise, by punishment of death ... or possibly harsh words.

Yu got some expression in him and the moving mouths aren't so bad.

Speaking of VA,  I do hope they give Charlie a new VA. I don't want him to sound exactly like Adachi!

I don't know works for me, at least in Japanese because I heard him talk in the anime. It will be stranger in the English version as I have no idea who they will hire for it. I mean the only people I ever heard reading Yu's lines are Jeff and Vinny. Still that's fine with me, he just sounded really depressing.

Probably not, based on what some Atlus USA guy said:(

He does? I think the only VA I can pick out more easily than him are Yuri Lowenthall and Nolan North.

I've watched the anime so hearing Yu talk doesn't bother me. The mouth moving thing is totally weird at first but really I'm fine with it.

#45 Posted by Devoid (438 posts) -

Having their mouths move when they talk is fine (it's giving me BlazBlue nostalgia) - as long as they stay the hell away from that 'idle animation' stuff that Record of Agarest War: Zero had.

..Which it looks like they aren't doing, so I'm bringing this up for no reason.

I'm really glad that their letting Charlie speak. During the Endurance Run, Charlie's silence during certain cutscenes really bothered me. I'm starting to dislike the silent protagonist choice in games, especially ones that want you to be emotionally engaged. I'm hoping that Persona 5 and more Atlus games have more talkative protagonists. I'd go a step further and give the protagonist a last name so his friends can actually say some part of your name. I love how Mass Effect does Shepard's style of a protagonist, I'm glad Charlie is talking more is all I'm saying.

Ha, I noticed this just going through the standard arcade mode storyline, yet never thought people might actually be interested in hearing about it. Living in Japan puts me in such a strange bubble when it comes to stuff like that.
