Why would they have done that? In the Japanese version, Nehelenia's voice doesn't change during the old Nehelenia bits.
I'm too used the Cloverway dub which did give Nehelenia an old womans voice during that scene. Considering Zirconia represented Nehelenia's fear of growing old, it just made sense to me, but I know Viz opts to stay as close to the Japanese as possible.
 
Cherami got to dub her song in the school fair episode.

It is a nice idea. :) But I don't think they really needed to do it here, since Nehelenia has a more mature voice in this dub.

A few more dub comparisons have been uploaded.

The Age Switch

I wish Sandy Fox had been allowed to use her Black Lady voice for the age switch. Sugar Lyn Beard steals this scene with her delivery in my opinion.

I miss the English insert songs and I enjoy the Cloverway dialogue that was added.

I dunno, while her grownup voice does sound good from an age perspective, the emotion of her delivery of "No" and "I don't want that" and such sounds more like boredom and indifference than sincere concern, making her almost sound needlessly sarcastic and sassy towards the very concerned Pegasus.

Overall, I prefer the Viz version of those two clips, but man, Mercury still continues to struggle with saying the word "Make" in an imposing way.

1. CWi's Palla Palla >>>> Viz's. (Not saying Viz's is bad, but CWi's is just better IMO.)

2. Viz's Helios >>>> CWi's. (Though I HATE how they say "Heel-ee-ose." I don't care that that's the 'correct' dictionary pronunciation; it's a personal name and is pronounced/written "Hehl-ee-ose" with a short e sound in the first syllable in the Japanese original. The Viz dub is so erratic with how it pronounces various things and it just makes it seem extra and insufferable.)

3. CWi's Nehellenia >>>> Viz's Nehalennia (The two aren't all that different actually. They both have this sort of Patti LuPone quality to them that I like. But I just think there's something in the CWi actress's voice and delivery that works with the animation better than the Viz actress's.)

Venus and Cere Cere sound alike.

I think CWI Helios is better as acting, but Viz Helios sounds more age appropriate. I like both honestly.

Sorry for the delay, got caught up in the new Let's Go Eevee game. Uploading some more (and longer!) clips:


I must say, Laura Post is so amazing doing the voices of young, old and current Nehelenia.

It still makes no sense how they couldn't dub the songs yet cwi managed to do it. If funi can dub the dragin ball super songs, viz should be able to dub songs that are part of the show itself, not just in universe singing. I still think it was Viz trying to be too faithful to the original and cheap.

The Viz actresses for the Inners are doing great, but I wish their transformation/attack phrases didn't sound so lame. Even though Liza Balkan was a goddamn awful voice actress, she sounded more pumped up than Kate Higgins when Ami used her powers...
