Last week’s debate, we had the super ultimate showdown between two of the greatest voice actors in America’s anime industry. Who is the king of all voice actors, Steven Blum or Jonny Young Bosch? Despite some of your love for Mr. Bosch, it is an overwhelming victory for Steve Blum. Not only did he play the roles of some of your favorite characters, but also was the voice of our collective childhood, Tom. Congratulations, space cowboy.
Steve Blum: 57
Johnny Yong Bosch: 19
Check out this week’s debate after the jump.
I’m not going easy on you this time, this one will make you burn bridges and force you to choose the best. Who is the best director, writer, and overall anime and manga creator, Go Nagai or Yoshiyuki Tomino? Both were born around the same time, and both love giant robots.
Go Nagai could be considered the father of the “super robot” genera of mecha, with the creation of Mazinger Z back in the 1970’s. He is also credited with the creation of the first “magical girl” manga, Cutey Honey. I’m not going to even try listing all the manga this man has created (not to mention you all will yell at me for missing one) so just check out his wiki page.
Tomino on the other hand could be considered the father of the “real robot” genera of mecha, with the creation of Mobile Suit Gundam. He is well known for his “kill’em all” trend of killing main characters off throughout his shows; though especially in the last few episodes. Though as time passed he mellowed out and let his characters see the last episode without harm. Even though he is the god of Gundam, he also created many other different series as well; check out the entire list here.
So which one of these god fathers of mecha wins?
