This is, again, something I might find myself going back on once I rewatch the show, but my memory of it is that the Manga UK version, even if it takes liberties, had some of the piss and vinegar sorely lacking in AnimEigo's dub. They also refer to the act of illegally restarting a dead boomer as 'resuscitation', which I thought was a good choice of euphemistic terminology in context - kind of harking back to the old Blade Runner schtick of 'this was not called execution, it was called retirement'.Wow, really?
Even though Manga went as far as to change Leon's surname in their dub?
I also agree on this and was a little sad to realise Oomori isn't in Crash.All I can judge a Japanese VA by is whether the sound of their voice is appealing to me or not, and hers very definitely is in both singing and speaking - It's got that slightly scratchy quality to it that singers who really belt it out a lot tend to get (or people who smoke too much, possibly both).
An awful lot of Japanese VAs sound very similar to me, so I appreciate hearing someone with a distinctive voice, but (as much as I can tell) Oomori also seemed to take to VA work better than plenty of other singers shoehorned into a role like this. Case in point, I recently watched an OVA called Star Cat Full House, which seems to heavily promote a girl group of the time, and it really did feel like you were listening to non-professionals delivering their dialogue in a flat, stilted manner. Oomori at least sounded to me like she was putting some feeling into it.
