The dub has better jokes. It also has that Big O thing going on where the robot character's English voice was better done and more robot-y than in the original.

>>100078520
Nah dude. It was decent, Christian Bale was miscast. Kimutaku was such a perfect choice for that role; Alan Cumming or someone similarly dandyish would have been much better for the dub.

The other Ghibli dubs have all been excellent, though, Kiki in particular.

There aren't any good dubbed anime. No matter what you watch, you aren't watching the original version. Call me a weeaboo or whatever but if I am watching a show made in an English Speaking country I watch that in English, if it's from France or Germany I'd watch it in French/German and if it is a Japanese cartoon I watch it in Japanese. That's how the show was originally made and intended to be enjoyed and if you can't enjoy it like that then this isn't the right media for you.

But that's the beauty of the world we live in. As long as there is a market for dubbing services, then it does have a place in the media. Dubs are available for those that want them and I'm fine with that. Heck, sometimes the people that do the dubs actually do a great job of making the show interesting, and so I don't think that it's necessarily a bad thing for anime in general. However, if we want to talk about how it affects the market and how dubbing companies don't give enough money back to the original creators, that's another discussion.

The subs themselves are an alteration of the original, the show wasn't originally made with subs and isn't intended to be watched with subs. If you can't understand the language then you aren't going to be able to enjoy it the way it's intended to be enjoyed either way, whether you watch it subbed or dubbed. I understand not watching live action shows dubbed, but animation? Just boils down to preference.

It's a mixed bag. On one hand it provides more variety - that could never hurt. On the other the variety it provides is shit, and the sort newfags actively latch onto. I'd say overall the costs outweigh the benefits.

That's like saying "The edited versions of Star Wars aren't faithful to the original. So that means I can replace the soundtrack with the Benny Hill theme and it would be as authentic as the new version." No, there are varying degrees of modification, and not all changes weigh the same.

Localization is always going to detract from an experience. However, why localize translation, acting, inflection, and pacing when you can choose to localize only the translation and leave the rest alone? Subs are ultimately the lesser of two evils, but compared to dubs it's minuscule.

Though the best choice is still just to learn moon.

You still have more of the original if you watch subs.

Subs dont localize as much as the dub and you still have the original audio.

So in the end, it just boils down to whether or not you care about the show and quality as a whole.
>>
>>100086519
Yeah, I agree that a lot of dubs turn out awful, but then there are a few series where the voice actors just sound good in their roles, like Chobits. Of course, it really is a matter of preference, but I think that some voice actors can really enhance localized versions if they do a good job, even if it's so bad it's good.

Dubs are only better in one of 2 situations.

1. The original actors are such shit that even second rate western hacks are better - almost never happens.

2. They decide that the anime is shit from the getgo, and reinvent it entirely, a la Ghost Stories. That's always a good time. See, they're not LOCALIZING anything. They're not imitating anyone's acting, creating an inferior product. They're letting their own creativity run free, and that's what makes a good show.

my main problem with watching with Subs is that they're usually poorly done and more often than not translated fucking wrong. dubs are good in some very rare instances, i'd say FLCL is one i'd pick as being one of the best dubs, maybe Trigun.

most of the time though I just watch raws cuz incorrect translations piss me off so god damn much
>>
>>100087173
It might not be exactly what you're saying, but when the voice actors get comfortable with their role, that's what makes a good performance. It's easy to tell when they can, like, as you said, Ghost Stories. Then again, that's a great dub for many other reasons, but the voices really fit their characters.

Because, I'm tired of just defending dubs, something that really bothers me is when the voice actors for dubs sound completely different the original japanese, like Kenshin in Rurouni Kenshin who has a female voice actor in the original, but then his english voice actor has a really deep male voice. It just really doesn't fit, and that is exactly what I dislike about dubs.

>>100087539
The problem with dubs is that they get almost no direction from the original creators. If you've ever been in acting, known an actor, or worked with any sort of performance whatsoever, you know how fucking important direction is to getting a role down. Dubs, having little input, relies on a actor's interpretation of another actor, with no direction and oh, the original being in a fucking foreign language the dub actor doesn't know. So there's that.

It boggles my mind, though, how people can really stand dubs. At best, they're about as good as the original, almost never better. So why would you watch a product that's just "almost as good" as the original? Why not just watch the original and be done with it? Can these retards not read?
>>
>>100087539
But if you watched the dub first you would be used to the deep male voice and then the jap one would sound weird to you. Which ever you saw first would become the "normal" one and any others would be a "change from the original."

That's a meaningless point

I'm not a dubfag although every once in a while i like to watch dubbed anime.
But saying "Japanese version is automatically better because it was the first/original version out and is the intended dialogue" is retarded. Many dubs make anime far more enjoyable wether it be the setting or context (Baccano!) or even just incredibly good performances (Cowboy Bebop, Maybe even Hellsing). It IS possible that what the writers / directors intended to be the best version is in fact not the best version. I'm not saying all dubs are good / superior to their japanese counterparts, i'm just saying that believing that the japanese version is automatically better because it was the first version is stupid and ignorant.

There's your fucking argument there
>>
>>100094523
>i'm just saying that believing that the japanese version is automatically better because it was the first version is stupid and ignorant.
So do you also watch dubs for live-action then? Fandubs?
The original is already a finished product, which then afterwards has a completely alien element added to it, by someone with no relation to the original production. If it was a complete adaptation of the original material it would be something entirely different of course.

>But saying "Japanese version is automatically better because it was the first/original version out and is the intended dialogue" is retarded.
Sure, if you don't think that original intent matters in any way. You have to wonder why people protest 4kids' alterations to animation and story, when it's apparently perfectly okay to do the same to the script/dialogue

This is why Sailor Moon has my favourite dub, it stomps all over the original, but it does so in such a bloody entertaining way that I can't help but love it and what it manages to pull off.

The only voices in the dub that I liked were Kobato and Rika

>I'm not saying all dubs are good / superior to their japanese counterparts, i'm just saying that believing that the japanese version is automatically better because it was the first version is stupid and ignorant.

This, so much. Just because the JP voices were the "original intent" doesn't mean they're better. Sometimes a dub performance absolutely creams the original. Hell, sometimes the original voices suck. The Japanese aren't perfect. They have shitty voice actors too.

Has nothing to do with the discussion and no one has implied that. Lots of countries have media that gets dubbed, not just Japan. Going by your logic you should watch shows dubbed in every possible language (including fandubs of course) because you think removing and replacing parts of a show is no problem. Why are you even watching it in the first place, if you don't care about what they wanted to bring across?
