I definitely like when a game doesn't seem to have a focal character.  They all operate in some was as "main character"

 When I changed the voices to japanese for a bit and heard Tiz it was like...yep, same character. And in a way that didn't feel like a forced impersonation. Looking at you Agnes. Liked japanese Ringabel more, but english Edea is better.

Japanese Edea ruined my hearing and was enough to keep English on the whole game.  (I'm slightly bias, I think Edea is my fav of the main 4)

Yeah, English Edea is so much better than the Japanese version.

Since we were talking about VAs earlier, her actress did Totori and Sophie from Graces.  I feel like, as an actress, she has really matured  in skill with her Edea performance.

Yeah it's all about experience. THe guy who did a horrible job as Reid in Tales of Eternia's localization ended up becoming... Sly Cooper, who was fucking classy as hell.

I heard the English voices for about 5 minutes and then immediately switched to Japanese. A) I can understand them and B) I find them so much mismatched. I don't think it's the fault of any one cast member, but I just really don't care for how everyone sounds together.

I can see what you mean about Tiz and Agnes' voices, I honestly like them more in Japanese. I'm torn on Ringabel, because his deep voice in Japanese is sufficiently exotic to them but it's just another 'gruff manly dude' over here, whereas his English voice suits his casanova personality. I really really hate Edea's Japanese voice though, it feels like my ears bleed out every time I listen.

Not to deter the conversation,
But Ringbel's voice sounds like the sort of divided treatment given to Tales of the Abyss' Tear.  Her japanese VA emphasizes her more caring personality while her english one hits more at her serious/militaristic background.

I'd probably dislike Tiz's voice more if his character was meant to have more personality.  He fells like the sort-of "I'm here" kinda character than the standout.

Tiz is more of a  self-insert character, really.  I don't think he's supposed to have a lot of personality.

It's not the first time even in a Final Fantasy game either. Fran from FFXII had a really deep, husky Jessica Rabbot-esque voice in Japanese while she has a squeaky, otherworldly voice in English. It's one of those things you need to change for localization to get the same effect across.

Compared to the other characters, by the mid point of Chapter 4, Tiz has only 7 pages in the Journal compared to Agnés, Ringabel, and Edea who have 11, 13, and 12 pages respectfully, and most of those are about stuffs that went down in the Caldis region way back in the Prologue.

In other words, yeah, he's pretty much kinda just there.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Got the normal ending last night. Knew who the villain was, but wasn't expecting.....what the villain became. Probably should have expected it considering the last page of the enigmatic writings (which begs the question of how that is in there). Now on to continue the plot! Side note: Triggering the normal ending is a pain in the rear. I ended up having to just slide my finger over repeatedly just to get my button pressing fast enough to trigger the stupid scenes.

But him and Agnes are deeply and truly in love!.....*gags* (In case you couldn't tell, I hate this romance.)
