To be honest I think Stephanie Nadolny's voice is great for teen Gohan, but for a little kid I just don't think the voice fits.

Stephanie Naldony has never voiced a teenage Gohan.

I blame the video games for calling Cell Games-era Gohan "teen". You are not a teen until you're 13.

Kyle Hebert plays a teenage Gohan.

The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

I wouldn't have been quite so harsh, but I agree for the most part. Some people don't like Nadolny's rasp, I just cannot get into Nozawa's characters. As such, it's difficult to get an impression for the Japanese version.

I don't like Sabat's Yamcha, especially in DBZ, it's too "surfer-dude-who-thinks-he's-cool" for Yamcha.
Tohru Furuya's the only Yamcha voice for me :)

Same with most of the official english voices compared to the japanese voices, I think the japanese voices suit the characters better.

You know, I don't really like Sabat's Yamcha either, but it's not really bad... I just think it lacks "I'm so cool!...okay not really. :(". Yamcha's supposed to be this cool pretty boy. but being in a gag manga, he ends up being funny instead of cool. Sabat's Yamcha is just so generic...or something. :/

The irony is that the description of what you said he should be is also generic. I thought Sabat's voice was actually quite fitting for the character type. Granted the earlier work is over blown but now a days he really has it down pat. Just my take on it though.
...Wait what are you doing? Are you still reading this? I finished what I had to say, why don't you move on to the next post?

What I mean is, I think he should sound cool, but as a joke for a gag manga. Toru Furuya sounds this way, I think.

I really the second Ocean Voice for Goku, the ocean voice for Krillin and Piccolo, and The Japanese Trunks.

Really? Scott McNeil's Piccolo?? I don't think I've ever heard it being disliked before. :O

Which Trunks are you talking about? Adolescent or boy?

Yeah, i think Scott`s Piccolo sounds like... like... it just doesn't sound good to me at all.
I do not like the Japanese Voice Actor for either of Trunks forms. It just sounds way off to me.

Child Trunks I can understand, but adult Trunks... He's supposed to sound polite and Gohan-like, being that Gohan was his mentor. What is it you dislike about it?

I agree, but only because I don't like that she voices the entire family with the exception of Raditz.
Her Goku is fine, but they should have made someone else voice Gohan, Goten & Bardock.
It becomes irritating, when the characters grow up like in GT, where we have adult Gohan, adult Goku(although he's a kid most of the time) and adult Goten.

I dislike the voice changes in kai. I will laugh in April if kai turns out to be a failed experiment.

His acting is great, i agree with that, but the voice just doesn't do it for me.

Care to share any specifics? Or at least which cast, English or Japanese?
