believe me i heard people hating on space dandy before they even watched it because it had a dub. quite sad actualy (granted the dub was a 7/10 but seriously; people heard dub and started shitposting)

I appreciate good dubs but that doesn't mean I watch them.

The only good dubs are the kind you just got, the rest are all shit and will always be shit.

No, because gentlemen of truly good taste hate dubs equally, no matter in what language they are.

Would you watch western movies dubbed in German?
>>
People who legitimately enjoy dubs are normalfags and/or illiterate.

Dub was a 7/10. Japanese voice acting was an 8. That's all there is to it.
>>
>>100322279
>Don't have any choice

Good enough excuse. We're talking about when you do have a choice, which is always in anime. Actually, often you don't even have a dub, so pure dub elitists are missing out, whereas pure sub elitists can at least access everything.
>>
>>100322279

There are plenty of German people that watch dubs because they don't know any better, or indeed don't have access to the original version. In countries that don't dub all their shit, dubs are generally viewed as being for those that can't read; children and the retarded, and that's how I feel about it as well.
>>
>>100322556

But German voice acting is actually pretty good.

yes
actually nothing is more shamefully mainstream than watching subs. i've watched dubs in languages you american kids don't even know about, and on video formats so obscure they don't even have english wikipedia entries. the world has really gone to shit when any kid can download some damn fansubbed anime to their gaming pc, ignorant to true anime traditions

I don't like the way the VAs deliver the lines in the SD dub. Meow sounds too much like a "dudebro" teenager, and QT too masculine. Dandy's anger sounds more sincere in tone in the Japanese version.
>>
>>100322689
Dubfags frequently complain that reading subtitles is a pain for them, as if they can't keep up with subtitles and the animation at the same time.

He's not saying you have to be smart to enjoy subs

It's just that people who like dubs are usually the ones who are lazy or have ADD and don't want to read subs, then they delude themselves in to thinking the dubs have better voice acting (which is never true)

I've got no problem with good dubs (like Ghost Stories). I've got a problem with dubs like Clannad's.
>>
The problem is that the nips tend to overact everything. I mean, anime is more or less cartoons and most cartoons play with exaggeration. But for me, that makes most characters that are supposed to appear "cool" often look a tad faggy.
>>
>>100322640

It's not about the actual quality of the voice acting involved. It's more about how it just sounds wrong, whether that is due to mixing or the lipsynch, but it does.

Also then there's the simple fact that it's not the original anymore, it's a remake. Retelling. Something will always be lost in translation. I also feel that it's very disrespectful towards the original voice actors who worked on the characters.

Well I honestly doubt that most anime is on a level of literature where it actually matters if some bits might be lost.
In addition, if you don't speak japanese yourself you will never know for sure if things got changed or not.
>>
>>100323578
How fucking stupid are you? Do I actually need to explain this? Do you think you're clever?

You always watch a production in its original language.
Subtitles are fine, but a major part of any media is the audio, and localization of the audio butchers the source material.
I will never be an advocate of any dub.

>>100323578

>>100323619

It's not about that, it's about wanting to have the original work. Same goes with other mediums, like literature. I always strive to read a book in the language it was originally written in if I can at all understand it.

And I do speak Japanese.

Checklist for every dub thread

>You can't understand Japanese so you don't know they're doing a bad job! I know they're doing a bad job because someone said so!
>You just like the sub because you're a weeaboo who is blind and likes only Japanese things, even if you claim you always watch the original in all forms of media no matter what country it was originally made in!
>Reading takes my focus off the animation because my eyes are damaged in a way that prevents me from seeing the entire TV at once somehow!
>English fits the setting better so you should watch the dub, even though I watch a million American movies set in foreign countries and they speak English the entire time!
>Anime is shit anyway, a bad dub is better because it fits how bad anime is!
>>
If i watch any dub, im quickly reminded im watching cartoons for kids.

Subs trick me into thinking im watching something foreign and crazy that people just dont understand.

I watch Hollywood movies in English and my first language is Spanish. I'm an anglowoo?

Dubs are shit in general, too much is lost in translation.

Also check 'em.
>>
I don't think it really matters for animation since everything is "dubbed" over the action anyway.

That being said subs usually give a better translation and are often more enjoyable but even a jaded guy like me sometimes appreciates a good dub, especially when I was sort of living on the streets for a year and only had my ipod to watch anime. Dubs are much better if you have a small screen.

It's not.

Older dubs (80s - 90s) were okay, but nowadays they're all pretty shitty.

And even "okay" dubs are always inferior to the original. No matter whether it's anime, live action film, video games, etc.
>>
>>100323750

I always think the sub sounds more childish. One thing I fucking hate is when a large female character is given the voice of an 8 year old, it sounds so out of place every time.

99% of /a/ will hate English Koko because she doesn't sound 13. I liked both her sub and dub voice but her lines were better in English, I can only hear "baka" so many times before it just gets annoying.

dub Koko does aggressive and angry very well. This scene was great

Different dubs provide different aspects to a story or change the presentation of a character (S&W) depending on your understanding of the language and the voice acting and translation.

You can call eng dub-watchers plebs and sub-elitists weeaboos but you're all fucking idiots regardless.
