ITT: Animes with decent dubs
Black Lagoon - ok
only ones ive seen with good dubs
You fucking fail.
I see no Golden Boy.
I mean, /a/ seems to like it.
How did they do Revy's horrid engrish? Have her speak horrid Japanese?
One Piece (FUNi)
Hellsing? Eva? and no Golden Boy? fail...
>>10011876 Never watched golden boy
>>10011882 I thought the dubs for death note were far worse then then the original voices
>>10011929 Just get out.
>>10011917 They only dubed the first 12 episodes so they really didnt get into that much.
same thread 50 times a day
>ITT: Animes with decent dubs
GITS SAC - Dub Major sounds super sexy.
FACT: Most anime have shitty voice acting even in Japanese. Because English-speaking viewers don't have a grasp on the nuance and phrasing of the Japanese language, they are incapable of noticing that the acting is shitty, and therefore assume that the acting is good. This is a fallacy.
i watched 5 minutes of an episode (it was on tv) and barfed all over myself with rage.
also, why would you want to watch dubs? the whole point of anime is people having extremely exaggerated emotions, which sound RETARDED in any language you can understand. that's why subs are so great- you get all of the inflection, all of the meaning, and none of the retarded.
lol ANN troll
old Ninja Scroll. Some of the dialog was way superior to the sub.
"Now he's the queen of the devils!"
Quoted for truth
Second Barrage doesn't have a dub.
Yes, lets start another one of those threads.
I guess I just leave now and let this thread get to 100+ replies again.
1 million dollars to you sir. The subs are also partially responsible for making Japanese voices sound superior. They distract your attention away from the voices and to the subs.
Fucking love that dog
Go watch Digimon and Medabots
Big O's dub is better than the original Japanese dub. Prove me wrong.
THE WAY TO HELL IS....RIGHT HERE!!!
Cromartie High School
Cromartie High School
same fast troll
never post again.
on topic, perfect blue maybe... jp voice acting was kind of shit, and en was meh, so i guess it stands tall above all shitty dubs. 80s anime can be good dubbed, only for laughs.
G MOTHERFUCKING GUNDAM.
I know this is a troll, but FMA actually is a good dub.
I was truly genuine
Cromartie was purposely overacted. It suited the show pretty well I thought.
I thought the Eureka Seven dub was pretty good. Certain animu just fit better with western voices, Eureka Seven, Cowboy Bebop, etc. being a few of those IMO.
so many people like the trigun dub, when it's so inferior to the original. why is this? are you able to evaluate it on its own merits without comparing it to the JP?
bebop dub is awful, and only [as] fags like it. what are you doing on a board dedicated to anime?
Can you tell me exactly what the merits of the original are? Are you a native speaker of Japanese?
I like the Bebop dub. What don't you like about it?
Now you are just trolling.
>>10012618what are you doing on a board dedicated to anime?
Trolling. Like you.
>I like the Bebop dub. What don't you like about it?
for starters, jet isn't black. beyond that, all the voices simply pale in comparison to the originals. megumi hayashibara vs... some ditzy white bitch?
>Can you tell me exactly what the merits of the original are? Are you a native speaker of Japanese?
convincing acting and comic delivery. dub is bland. no i am not a native speaker, are you?
False. Second Barrage's dub was finished but because of Geneon's implosion who knows when or who will release it.
Personally I'm really curious as to how they will handle the segments where Rock translates for Balalika and Revy's Engrish.
Also in the day and age where we have a choice between dubs and subs it is abhorrently retarded to bitch about the quality of either. You don't like one then switch it over and watch the other and SHUT THE FUCK UP about it.
Stand alone complex
If the dub wasn't released, then it might as well not exist.
>>If the dub wasn't released, then it might as well not exist.
If the dub is finished why waste money and not eventually release it?
i wrote a 400 page novel. why should i waste all that money/time and not self-publish it and earn all that money right back, amirite?
i'm a gainax snob, and i honestly agree with this poster (even though he may be trolling). dbz is awesome, and the dub is awesome. worth marathoning any section? no. heady enough to talk about with anyone? no. entertaining? yes.
the only one that works is Hellsing because those guys aren't japanese, they're brits, krauts, and irishmen. also Anderson's accent in dub = win in both OVA and TV series
It may sound win, but that doesn't mean it's appropriate. He has no confirmed nationality; anyone could pick Scottish.
The characters aren't Japanese in a lot of series.
Lupin the 3rd
Was the bebop Movie Dub different VA's than the Series? I recall them sounding different.
the VA is Irish
Anderson's orphanage is in Ireland
He's fucking Irish
watch the superior sub; problem solved.
Wiki tells me that Steven Brand is Scottish (I'm willing to accept that Wiki makes mistakes). The accent is really Scottish, anyway.
If it was a simple case of him living and working in his birthplace then the other characters in Hellsing wouldn't be so fucking confused. Your post is nothing.
Excel Saga, and based on the few episodes of FMA I actually watched, the dub wasn't that bad.
Vandread had decent subs.
I don't recall the source but I'm positive I heard the VA is from Dublin. I think it was in one of the interviews with the casting director for the dub. It's been an issue for a while because many fans complain his accent sucks.
The rest of the characters are obvious. Maxwell is from Italy. Integra and Seras are English, and so on. Alucard doesn't count, if anything he should sound Romanian like Dracula, but that would sound kind of stupid.
only an amerifag would be retarded enough not to notice that ALL eng-dubs suck. they suck because the american voice actors can't act to save their lives and the producers think anime = disney cartoons.
I failed, IMDB agrees with you. http://imdb.com/name/nm0104526/
Weird, I'm near positive the casting director said that.
For some reason over the past several years dub fanatics have become empowered into thinking that English dubs are "cool" and that taking a stand against fansubbing is some moral high ground.
To them, I say; Fuck you.
Well, don't feel bad. I tend to think Catholic=Irish anyway so it wouldn't be a difficult conclusion to draw. I mean, I've confused the accents once or twice in the past.
I believe dub only fits and works when the characters aren't japanese. and while there are many animes where this is true there are only rare cases where it works 100%. an example is Hellsing. maybe because they are European thus having different accents and the VAs are much more appropriate.
however when the anime is in japan with clearly japanese characters, dubs DO NOT WORK. period.
heck anything with Johnny Yong Bosch (sp?) or the guy that does kyon's voice(for the main character) is bound to have a decent dub
had amazing dubs
The Japs sure don't think so.
FUCK AND PISS
I once accidentally started watching an episode of FLCL with dubs on (dual audio) and I almost made myself taller afterwards.
Sage had a pretty good dub.
there are no good eng dubs. ever. I keep wondering why even bother adding the dubs, it only increases the cost and no sane person wants them
