Fuuka's VA is really distracting

I really don't understand the hate.

Yeah, it's not really good voicework, but her in-battle quotes really aren't that loud, especially compared to Rise or Teddy. Like am I missing something?

I'm about 25 hours in now, so she's been with me for awhile. I don't mind her- she's definitely not somebody I enjoy listening to, like with Mitsuru, Yukari, or even Aigis, but I don't hate her. She's weird, she's like a blank slate, she just reads lines in the most bland way possible, with very little emphasis or emotion involved, which I suppose is supposed to match her personality, but I can see how it would be off-putting. So far, the only person's dialogue I skip through is fucking Pharos AKA "Mysterious Boy." I like how he sounds just like Astaroth from Catherine (they're both voiced by Yuri Lowenthal,) but I just don't give a shit about anything he has to say. I'm interested to see if they do anything worth-while with him though, because so far, he just seems pointless. I still read everything he's got to say, but when I can read faster than he can speak, I'll skip his dialogue.

Early on Mitsuru warned me that she sensed Death's presence, then I stepped right into the fight, and was quickly one-shotted... Lost like an hour of progress. Good times.

They do, there's a lot more to him than you've seen so far. Plus you can be a total ass to him when he visits you at night without consequence since he's an automatic level up.

I played an "undub" copy. Japanese voice reinserted into the English game. Used PCSX2. (I own 2 copies of Persona 3, but neither of them is the Japanese version, so I technically pirated the voice over, whoops) I don't totally hate the voice work in 3, and I'm not one of those people that always wants original Japanese voiceover, but 1 clunky delivery can really take you out of the game.

Nope, I never had a problem with it.

I think they were trying to imitate her Japanese voice-artist or maybe they weren't trying to imitate it enough which is why, when possible, I prefer Japanese audio with English subtitles.

Fuuka's Japanese VA in P4A makes me want to claw my ears out. Holy crap, I feel like beating the crap out of my opponents when they're using Fuuka as their Japanese voiced navigator.

Wasn't much into her at first, but I got used to her by the end of the P3P Female version of The Journey. I like her ENG VA a lot more than the JPN one, though.
