  • Incredibly talented voice actor...

    He's an awesome voice actor, and he has amazing range. Funny and extremely nice man, and is extremely talented at his craft. My favorite roles of his are Vegeta and Kazuma Kuwabara. I think he's very talented and I look forward to his future work in anime.

    Chris Sabat is my favorite voice actor. What's more to say? He voices some of my favorite characters in anime. He does Kazuma Kuwabara and Raizen in Yu Yu Hakusho. He does a lot of DBZ voices like Vegeta and Piccolo, he's basically great. He's really funny and talented, and basically brings a lot of talent and entertainment to the name of funimation, not to say Funimation doesn't have any talented voice actors. Currently, Chris does Roronoa Zoro in One Piece, and he does a great job. Overall, I hope to see more of the animes Chris has worked on in the future. To wrap up this review, Christopher R. Sabat is the greatest voice actor in the world!moreless
