Corp.IAM................... I Gotta Feeling they didn't think of that by themselves........... Laughing

Murder, She wrote:

When asked, they candidly replied that they felt that voice actors, who in almost all cases are considered subcontractors, have very little power and are generally not paid the wages they feel they deserve, especially considering their popularity with fans.

Yeah, that's why they have to sing theme songs, sell CDs, and do other stuff to supplement their income. Corporate still holds too much power in Japan, like in the days of pre-free-agency in sports.

Anyways, it's interesting that it's the voice actors in an American con that led them to this idea. So since the English track is integral to the creator's intent from the very start, shouldn't it be considered as part of the original vision?
