James' voice makes me want to cut my ears off. I really hope he improves - any US viewers, does he, he sounds so fake and so.. head coldy? Anyway the only voice u notice the difference with is Ash, good god.. must of been one of those eps with barely any TR in it
I don't mind the new voices to be honest. Especially for the background, filler characters.
Some of them I can't really tell the difference, Jessy comes to mind. Others sound like older incarnations of themselves or older characters. May sounds eerily like Kanto Misty sometimes and James like the really early Kanto James.
Max's voice is crap though. But I'm not totally obsessed on the subject and am not about to take it too seriously. Max's voice was always annoying, he just has a different annoying voice instead.
Brock's voice id the best simply becasue it didn't change so much and it really futs him. With Jessie I can't tell the difference, they are practically the same. Max...let's not go there. May sometime sounds old and sometimes sounds like a brat, but the saga is ending so I don't care. Ash really needs help, he improves but I just can't stand it. He sounds weird...
