Code Geass English Dub
Posted 2/24/08
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion has been picked up for english dubbing, and the voice for Lelouch is Johnny Yong Bosch.

Does anyone besides me think Bosch's voice is a terrible choice for the dub?

I knew this since last year, but I'll be looking forward to it, because of Johnny yong Bosch.

His voice acting was beyond superb in DMC4.

Actually it's quite fitting, considering that Lelouch is actually a good natured character (who is easily likable) trying to be a villain, and Johnny Yong Bosch does a tremendous job in doing characters who are good natured (and easily likable. Why else would he do all those terrible things just to build a new world for his sister. Although anger and vengeance be his primary motivation, Lelouch's ultimate goal is to build that ideal world. Thusly through his actions we see the good inside Lelouch.
Also please note that Jun Fukuyama tends to play these kinds of roles as well, actually that is the sole reason why the director (in Japan) chose him to be Lelouch's Seiyuu.

Here's a quote from another person's analysis on Lelouch's character.

This is reflected in their voice actors. Sakurai Takahiro (Suzu) and Fukuyama Jun (Lulu) were originally thought by the other voice actors to have opposite roles (switched) because Sakurai was used to darker characters (i.e. Kanda from D. Gray-Man and Cloud from FFVII) and Fukuyama was used to 'lighter' characters (i.e. Albert from Gankutsuou and Kazuki from Busou Renkin). The director's choice of voice actors was to emphasize the fact that they were people acting really hard to be characters who they usually weren't.


I think Celiss from GameFAQs used this analogy about the means justify the ends thing:

There are two injured people close to death on the side of the road.

Lelouch would chose the one with the greater chance of survival after taking into account of his own physical strength and how long it would take him to drag a person to the hospital. The other one would die but at least one would live. Ends justify the means

Suzaku would try to take both along with him and both of them will die in the process. But because he at least tried to save both, it would be okay. Means justify the ends
