Eeeeeeyup, finally joining the bandwagon of people doing their own MvC3 reels.
Edit: Re-uploaded due to re-adjusting the audio level on some of the lines and re-recording some of them.

You have a very good grasp and a sense of power behind your voice for Zero.
Great job! :)

Could've sworn this was supposed to be Zorro. (zorro and zero are both very similar)
Joking aside, the energy behind the "calling out the attacks" is very nice. I feel like it would've been nice if you kept that energy during the beginning lines, too.
Also, I'm all for the anunciation thing and all, but I think that you should speak just a hair faster for some of these lines, like "Another soulless copy, huh?"
But you do make a very nice Zero.

Now that you pointed it out it does seem like it would have been better if I spoke a little faster on the "Another soulless copy, huh?" line. As for the first part of your comment, which lines exactly do you mean? I know at least one line where I get why you say that so it would be helpful to point those lines out too.

The first thing I noticed was the accent. I'm not against characters having once, but your accent serves more to get in the way than make the character your own.
Anyhow, moving along I'll say that you're definitely on the right track. I feel the love for the character, but you were lacking. That is to say, you were holding back...a lot. The energy felt muted and the voice lacked any real flair. Zero should be pretty lively walking the fine line of confidence and arrogance.
Keep at it though. You're on the right track. You had a few lines that were about where they needed to be. "Take this!" and "Not more games!" are good examples of the direction you should be going in.
So yeah, pick up that energy! Give Zero a few more tries and you should be able to settle into the character no problem.

I'm not sure I follow what you mean about the accent getting in the way. If you mean the attacks (Shippuga, Raikousen, Hienkyaku, etc) then I get what you're saying. I'm still working on being able to speak words in Japanese without any noticeable accent as much as possible. If you mean everything else outside of that then, recognizing certain accents being my weak area, it'll take a while for me to fix this but I'll definitely address this issue the best I can on my next performance.
As for the lack of energy on certain lines I completely agree with you. The set volume when I was recording the screaming lines (which was the majority of the reel) may have been set a little too low to reduce the chance of peaking and I might have recorded non-screaming lines in the set volume for the screaming lines, but then again I don't think it would have made much of a difference to my overall performance because it's my ability to act that carries the performance and not much on the recording's volume (though it helps if the volume is just right for the line/s). Guess that's one more thing I need to watch out for when recording.
I really appreciate you for nitpicking, especially big ones, my Zero reel because finding out those faults and making sure I fix them next time is what gets me to improve on my next performance.

Well, I guess I wasn't really feeling it for "Engaged in battle" and "Just like a training program."
I already previously addressed the problem with "Another soulless copy" in the previous post. I think it's the same story for "This'll be over in a nanosecond."
The other lines were fine, in my opinion.
