I'm just glad Japanese don't give a shit about complaining like this. Barret sounds fine. Would it be better if he had a softer voice, but spoke in ebonics?
Well of course he doesn't sound "bad". But when I hear him talk, it just sounds off. Barret is a big dude, but he's not a cave troll or anything. Michael J White is about as tall as Barret and his voice isn't anywhere NEAR that deep and raspy.
But you're right, Japan doesn't need to bend over backwards to get Barrets voice to please everyone.
