SO That's what we did!
In order of appearance:
Tsuruko - Amanda Lee
Yukiatsu - AMTRAX19
Jintan - GForce
Menma - MissAck
Please comment~ Hope you guys enjoy!

This was a neat little clip. Let's critique, shall we? I'm going to be a tad harsh since you're all such high-quality actors, mmkay? Just trying to give some worthwhile feedback and constructive criticism. :D
Tsuruko/Amanda Lee: It was nice to hear you in a different kind of role. I'm used to hearing you in the more excited kind of roles, so it was really cool hearing you in a more mature, medium-toned voice. A couple of lip-flap issues, but nothing major really. The one thing you'll want to be aware of (and more careful of in the future) is the little soft gasp at the end of your lines. If you can catch yourself before you do that, it'll sound a bit cleaner, but if you can't, it's a good idea to at least chop that off the end of your lines when you cut them. I know I have the same problem sometimes, so I try to clean up a bit and catch myself/re-record when I hear it during the recording process.
Yukiatsu/AMTRAX19: HOLY CRAP. I talk to you every day, and I have a REALLY hard time believing this is even you! I'd say this is the strongest performance in the clip! I don't know much about the anime, but this character seems the quiet, stoic type, and you pulled it off very nicely. There's an intensity to your performance, even though you're character is really quiet. There's some real emotion in those lines, and it's amazing to hear those subtleties played up. Very well done, sir. Very well done indeed!
Jintan/GForce: If I had to be honest, I was kind of disappointed in this performance. Besides some serious lip-flap issues (which may not be FULLY your fault), the timing of the lines at times seemed unnatural and didn't seem to fit the flow of the scene very well. The very first line really pulled me out of the scene. It seemed forced and half-assed simultaneously. The nervous lines sound alright when not looking at the image, but don't seem to really fit when watching the animation. The line screamed at Menma also felt out of place and unconnected, like you were just saying the line to say it. I know you can do better than this, because I've seen better. I think what might help a little more is to definitely pay attention to the expression of the character as you are saying the lines. If what you're saying doesn't match the image, don't be afraid to change your delivery. The line of the younger Jintan was well-delivered. It didn't seem like there was much difference in vocal tone here, so you may want to bring the older Jintan's vocal pitch down a bit to make the age difference more apparent. Overall, not a horrible performance, but I know you can do better, and I hope you guys do more of these so we can see you grow into the character a little more.
Menma/MissAck: Not too bad! A couple of strange deliveries, though from my understanding, the character isn't exactly your normal girl. I liked the juvenile aspect you brought out in the character. The last couple of lines could have benefitted from another read, as they seemed a bit separated from the rest of the scene, but the disconnect wasn't too bad, so good job! P.S. GET A NEW MIC. :P
Mixing: Really good mixing, in the sense that the music didn't overpower the lines, and the levels from each character were fairly even. Some issue in mic quality from character to character, but that's not really something mixing can fix much. Had a small problem with the footsteps, as it kind of sounds like the same effect used over and over again, so you might want to look into alternating SFX and playing with volumes to make it sound a bit more natural. The ambience is well-placed. There seemed to be a couple of missing FX here and there, namely in the flashback scene, but again, I haven't seen the original, so I don't know if there was more to that or not. Overall, it was well done!
OVERALL: Not bad guys! A few things here and there would have made this amazing, but overall this is a fairly well-done project. It was a nice watch. :) 4.0/5.0

I really loved everyone's performance. This is easily the best fandub of The Drive Productions. I am just anticipating on how each and every one of you are going to make a mark in your respective careers. You especially Amanda. ;)

Omg this was sooo good :D
As for a Critique
The emotion was spot on my only issue is that I believe Tsuruko's voice is a bit deeper. You got her character and softness of her voice spot on. Some time flaps didn't match but that could be the mixer's fault.
I loved this voice. Emotion was really well and I really think you fit the character.
I feel that the emotions were off at times as well as the time flaps (which could be because of the mixer)
The voice was really adorable and fit Menma.
Besides the timeflaps, everything else sounded really good

Top-notch quality right here! Yukiatsu surprised me the most. I loved that take on him. Made him seem more, broken? All other voices were really well-done and I ALWAYS love clips with phenomenal mixing. Without great mixing, a scene could never truly come to life like this one has.

I have no idea what this is but the title drove me in. Good work.
