New Feature: The Chuck Huber Villain Counter™!

Hey, all!  Sorry it’s been so long since my last update, but classes are finally done and I’m out of school until January (4.0, baby!).  So now that I have some free time, I’ve been able to get more comparisons done.

Since I just posted Episode 009 below, I thought I might introduce a brand new feature to go along with the comparisons: The Chuck Huber Villain Counter™!

If you’ve been watching the episodes/movies of Case Closed that FUNimation has released, you might have noticed that voice actor Chuck Huber has played a lot of jerks in this show.  Like, a ton.  Whether he’s voicing a murderer, an antagonist to Conan and friends, or just a douche bag in general, it seems Mr. Huber always gets stuck playing the bad guy.  I’ve certainly noticed, and our top scientists at Magic’s Detective Agency have created this tracker using state-of-the-art technology so that we can find out just how many jerks this guy has played in Case Closed!

Here’s how it works: Go to the “Episode / Movie Thoughts” section of each comparison.  If you see a line of text that looks like this…

“Chuck Huber Villain / Murderer / Douche Bag Count:”

… then you know that Mr. Huber voiced a meanie in that episode!  We’re only at episode 009, and our count is already at #3!  This’ll be interesting, folks.  Stay tuned as more comparisons are posted for updates to our counter.  Once the episodes are completed, the Chuck Huber Villain Counter™ (!) will apply its technology to the movies as well.  Movie 02, we’re looking at you.
