Damn, Maaya. Always loved her english songs as much as her JP ones. She did a fantastic job here. Hate the song but her singing it was pretty good

Sakamoto Maaya is great as always.

I'm not a huge fan of Miyano Mamoru, but I'm still a bit bummed that they didn't cast him as Johnny. The English voice was a dead ringer for him, both singing and talking... alas, I guess he's just not celebrity enough. (Johnny is voiced by the vocalist of Sukima Switch, and by all accounts he did really well, but still.)

Also, my life is not complete until I hear Yamadera Kouichi singing My Way... Here's a clip of him singing Mike's audition: https://youtu.be/a7yRnO90Uls

I'd call that a real stretch.

I wonder if these videos are a way for American record companies to try to promote themselves in Japan. Not sure how much inroads they'll make, but it is interesting to hear the voice actors' English. I wonder how much practice they needed to sing them.
