    Outlaw Star Pilot Dub (Update: It is done!)

    I talked about this some time back. Back when OSN was on Facebook I got in touch with Emilie Brown, Melfina's voice actress. I discussed the pilot episode with her and she said she'd dub it but I think she got caught up in some personal matters. Fast-forward a couple of years later and I sent her an e-mail a short while ago. She's replied and agreed to do it, but she just wanted some reference videos so she can retrain her voice to match Melfina's. I sent her some Melfina videos, and it's finally gonna happen! It could be this week or next week when I receive the new vocals, but I'm just mega-excited that it's really going to happen now.

    Original pilot video:



    Voiceless version, just waitin' for the English voiceover:



    Will we be making history here by officially completing all of Outlaw Star's lines (the pilot counts, damn it!) almost seventeen years later? Well, I don't know about that, but I'll be really impressed if she manages to pull this off perfectly after this time gap. It will also serve as a good indicator as to how well she could voice Melfina again if—hypothetically speaking—a sequel appeared out of the ether one day.

    Very exciting stuff dude! If I'm not mistaken you remembered to contact her again due to our PMs, so I'll chalk this up as my victory as well hahahaha good work.

    Awww shit, son. Now we got the OG Melfina making a comeback.

    ...OK, technically the Japanese actress would be the OG Melfina but you know what? Emilie Brown's performance was the first Melfina I have heard so she's the OG in my eyes. Really looking forward to hearing this.

    I'm totally psyched and probably expecting a new reply way too soon.

    Ugh... I hate disappointing you guys, but I've been really disappointed by this myself and I also hope that she's okay. What stings the most is that this is the second time this has happened. As I said in the OP, she said she'd be happy to dub it on Facebook, and now she hasn't replied to my last e-mail despite sending a reply before that saying she'd be glad to do so.

    Best regards,

    She seemed happy enough to do it, and it's not like six short lines would take long to do. Possible reasons could be family issues or discovering that her Melfina voice hasn't aged very well, but I dunno, I don't think that's likely. I already sent her one follow-up e-mail and I don't want to bug her again...

    Project is... probably canned.

    Such a shame. It would've been cool to hear her back the saddle again. I would imagine that she has a shit ton of things to do on her plate so either that came up or she completely forgot it. Understandable but still a bummer.

    You could always let it simmer another year then ask again hahaha. Sorry it didn't work out again this time though. I was really stoked for this

    This...is absolutely amazing. I'm late to the party here, but if there's any way possible to try contacting her again, man I'd see if she's still interested.

    Maybe we could run a kickstarter (crowdsource) campaign for OSN guys and see if we can at least cut her a small check for her time in the booth recording?

    I offered a payment but I don't think she wants it. Since she's a voice actress I'm guessing she has some recording equipment at home? I'll probably wait until Q3 or Q4 next year before contacting her again. Maybe there's a good reason she hasn't been able to reply and she'll do that. Or maybe not.
