Hello /a/! I am considering watching Xam'd, but recently I read somewhere that the dub makes some translation mistakes that may confuse the viewer. Is that really the case? If yes, what about the official subs? Are they actually accurate?

Go ahead and make this a Xam'd thread if you want.

>I am considering watching Xam'd,

Don't it's shit
>>
>>100116340
Let me find out myself, please.
>>
>>100116397
It really is. It's pretty, and the animation is OK, but the story is dumb as hell and the ending will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Also Shutup and Expload.

>I am considering watching Xam'd
Why?
>>
>>100116499
Because I'm curious.
>>
>>100116397

Well we warned you
>>
>>100116621
Thanks.
>>
>>100116619
don't
just don't
if people are honestly telling you that it's bad, just don't be a retard and watch it. It's made by bones after all.
>>
I really liked the first ten or so episodes, what the hell happened?
>>
>>100116465
It's not that bad. It's just a less shitty version of Eureka Seven.

this thread making me curious.
>>
W-what if I just want to watch it for the animation?
>>
>>100118004

I have seen both and I would stay go with the Japanese dub because whoever voices Nakiami does an amazing job.

This is the release you want.

It was fucking boring. The episode when the MC and his girl met again around episode 18 or so was great and after that it had some interesting action but overall it was a chore to watch. It's a shame it had an interesting world, also that black mouth telling propaganda was somehow soothing.

It's got a lot of highlight moments and some really neat concepts. Some neat looking designs and settings.

It does have some issues with pacing and coherency and not living up to expectations.

Still worth a watch though.

It's fine. The show's really good for the first half in a very Eureka7 kind of way. After that it starts following too many separate stories and hardly any of them have a decent pay off.

Glasses bro is the only exception.
Goodnight sweet prince ;_;

Go back to ANN/MAL
>>
>>100118250
Wait who was that again?
>>
It was a meh show, not bad but not good either. Really reminded me of E7 for some reason.
>>
>>100118280
OP here.
>1080p
>DTS
Um, no thank you. I already have the Anime Anarchy 720p version, I was just wondering whether to go with the English dub or with the Japanese one.

>>100118341
>did you enjoy E7 and RahXephon
Sadly, no. I remember starting E7 quite a while ago, but those fucking brats killed it for me. Please tell me they get put into a meatgrinder after ep. 8.

>>100117998
Yes, dub. Now fuck off.
>>
>>100119709
>Sadly, no.
I meant, I didn't even watch them.

You're making Nakiami cry you dipshit.
>>
>>100117588
It went nowhere and then it decided to go all over the place to fix it.
>>
I watched it not too long ago.
Was really good when it started, degraded into being meh. Overall it's not bad, and certainly not shit, but threw away 90% of the potential it had when it started.
Protag is pretty good throughout the whole thing, like him at the start, still like him by the end.
The story leaves untied loose ends, and some plot holes here and there though nothing too major.
The designs are great and the animation ranges between ok to really good for the most part, save for 2-3 episodes.
This is my opinion, ok as a time killer, nothing special.

But don't be a fag, the dub is bad and you shouldn't watch it.
>>
>>100119709
The 1080p is not an upscale but a rip. And if you have issues with the DTS blame Sony's its on release by default. How did you even find a release by Anime Anarchy? Did you like Google for your torrent or something? Because I have never seen them before.

tl;dr go with the Japanese dub because the VA's are better in it.
>>
>>100120713
I don't really care for best possible quality, I want to be able to watch it anywhere, be it PC, laptop or tablet. 720p with AAC audio is decent enough for all those options.

>How did you even find a release by Anime Anarchy?
Downloaded it from tehparadox some time ago.
I didn't even care about the group, I just thought I needed 720p dual audio and at that time, TCL's version was unavailable.
>>
>>100121713
Oh, and yes, I'll watch it subbed. If at all, after reading through this thread.
Do with the thread what you want, I'm out. Thank you.
