ITT: rare shows where dub > sub.
>that Goku voice
Death Note. Come at me faggets.
Elfen Lied's dub was pretty good.
Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, Welcome to the NHK(purely for the MC's VA), and Space Dandy.
Dragon Ball dub is absolute garbage, neuters completely the feeling it should have
All anime. Never watched a single one subbed. Come at me faggots.
The dialogue is shit, but the voices are far better. Kai dub used the japanese dialogue for the most part, so it's the best of both worlds. Too bad it didn't use the dub soundtrack too.
Get the fuck out, Goku sounds like a fucking pussy in Japanese.
Baccano and Yugioh GX.
This is by no means comprehensive, it's just what I've come across so far.
Seriously though, if you don't watch Beck dubbed, you're doing it fucking wrong.
He sounds like a little girl.
Yeah, probably why I really didn't enjoy Battle of Gods.
Apart from the shitty sub and that pink haired saiyan bullshit.
No, you get the fuck out /v/ and take you cock-sucking bitch, >>100331417 with you.
Get the fuck out.
>What are proportions
>waaaah someone won't watch the sub even though its inferior! they must be baka gajins from /v/!
Stop being such a manchild.
Is that the best you could come up with?
Even the cheesiest, worst acted dub is better than listening to nip speak.
Yeah m8 they were really going for a realistic approach for DBZ.
I quite liked Baccano and Tiger and Bunny
So Welcome to the NHKs dub is better? I usually dont use dubs if I have the option.
Way less hate and vitriol in this thread than I would have imagined.
I preferred the Darker than Black dub. Cowboy Bebop, too.
It's mostly the VA that played the MC. He went through a bad case of social anxiety(and may actually still be dealing with it) and it really shines through in his voice acting.
This is why I haven't watched BoG yet. I'll watch it as soon as that dub srops.
TWGOK and P&S
Kuroko dub >>>>>>> Kuroko sub
Changing the entire soundtrack, opening/ending themes, dialogue, character personality and censoring is considered a "good" dub?
I'm sorry but you have terminal nostalgia. The dub isn't even recognizable as DB anymore, it's 4kidz tier localization.
>liking out of place trumpets and shrill grandma screaming
Enjoy your shit taste.
One Piece Funimation dub
Fuck you, Luffy sounds like he's a chain-smoking woman in all versions.
Yu Yu Hakusho dub was great. The characters voices are bound to get anyone wet
The comedy doesn't translate nearly as well through subs.
But that's simply wrong. I couldn't care less about the dialogue and the soundtrack.
I would watch it just for those amazing Vegeta and Goku English voice actors.
QUAKE WITH FEEEEAAAAAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
Daily reminder that the cowboy bebop dub is trash, and the only reason you defend it is nostalgia/groupthink
they butcher a handful of lines in every episode
Also dub DBZ has a better soundtrack so go suck a dick.
I seen it when I was 20 and thought it was awesome. You got some suggestions for better shows?
Even the creator liked it more. Stop being such a bitch over the fact that japanese VAs aren't always the best choice.
"do you have any books by black people"
Oh so they changed some of the shittier dialog a few times.
>IT MUST BE BAD THEN
The music is good, the direction isn't.
Panty Stocking dub was good
The music is not good. Your mind is deceased.
u fukken wot m8?
Did you actually listen to any of the themes?
dub by ocean group, not funimation
the backing track is ok, but the lyrics are dumb
original music is still better
>not appreciating the best soundtrack in any anime ever
Are you sure?
listen......kid....that music is not good
>implying the original opening isn't better
Dub had a pretty good soundtrack though.
I still don't really care about IS in anyway, but I thought this was more watchable dubbed because of the girl's funny accents, especially the cockney and the little Nazi
There've been like 10 dub threads in the last 24 hours, I really have no idea what's going on
jap soundtrack had three good songs at most. Face it fag, you're wrong on this one.
Only in the world of anime fandom are dubs considered superior to the original.
>Hey Kouta what are you screaming about
u are 1 ****ing cheeky kunt mate i swear i am goin 2 wreck u i swear on my mums life
It wasn't trash but Steve Blum and Wendee Lee can't emote so it is overrated yeah
After just finishing Steins;Gate, fuck you. The dub was fucking terrible.
>All those american VAs trying to speak other accents
Everyone else in the show was complete shit.
But the girl who voiced Panty in Panty and Stocking was made for that role.
Also video games
People generally treat dubbing of animated stuff - which is already dubbed to begin with - differently from live-action. I never watch live-action films dubbed (unless they're like trashy kung fu movies or something) but with anime I go about 50/50 between dubs and subs, and when video games have dual language options I usually go dub. I don't really see this as an inconsistency.
Most Spanish dubs are better than the subs.
a large amount of db jokes were lost in translation. take your nostalgia goggles off.
Steamboy. Dub features mothafuckin' Patrick Stewart as the grandpa.
It was awesome.
I can't believe you just said that you freak.
I forgot how good that song was in that Hiei Yusuke scene
They made some really excellent choices for VAs. I can't think of single character whose voice I didn't like.
No there hasn't, I've been here all day and I haven't seen a single one, stop being delusional.
get the fuck out
>This whole thread
>all these shit /co/ tier opinions
I blane the DandybaloonySpacebronies
Goku is a pussy.
He's not the macho hero you always idolized as a kid, he's a manchild who likes fighting and eating. Just like you, you beta faggot, except instead of fighting you just watch fighting anime.
All dubs are better because I don't speak moon, I only speak American
He's the exact fucking opposite of a pussy, he spends his life doing whatever the fuck he wants
I don't care how many times you guys call me a faggot for this, I would rather hear Greg Aryes attempt to sing than
>furru moono swrar, gentr in ra night on one fin ray
Greg Ayres's performance during the Grateful Sound concert was fucking sublime. Dat range, man.
And Justin Cook kicks the SHIT out of JP Chiba, in both acting and singing.
There are a few where either sub or dub is an option, but for the other 99.9 percent the dub is completely atrocious.
See, I actually agree that for some reason, he just sounds good singing, which I never would have thought possible previous to Beck. But it just adds to the feel of the show, that the 14 year old singing actually feels a bit like a 14 year old singing, but is still enjoyable. That amateurish sound was just lost in the Japanese version.
I dunno about "better", but (not counting shows already mentioned here) I liked the dubs for Gunslinger Girl, Akira, Nadesico, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and The Sky Crawlers. The dub for Witchblade was practically the only thing that made it watchable. And I actually liked the dub for Evangelion - in fact, it was pretty much the first dub I really got into.
I love the Beck dub cast so much. Everyone was cast so well, Koyuki, Chiba and Maho especially.
Fullmetal Alchemist comes to mind. The names are mostly in English anyway (fuck Edowaderu Erruriku) and Mustang is a gravelly badass in the english dub but kind of a bitch in Japanese
This isn't really true anymore though. Most dubs made within the last 5 years or so are watchable at the very least. The level of quality that used to make dubs for shows like Bebop, FMA, GitS and Gainax shows stand out is more or less the standard now.
FMA dub also had the benefit of a pretty good script adaptation (even if it did muddle a few of the more obscure plot points), which is a really underrated part of what constitutes a good dub. Most dubs that have ever had adaptation work done by Jared Hedges have been exceptional, for example.
I agree... though I do feel Wolf's Rain and most of Death Note's dub was pretty adequate.
Panty & Stocking dub was really good, it had actual jokes. Only bad part was that they couldn't find an actual black guy to voice Garterbelt.
Speaking of which, I still need to see Michiko & Hatchin's dub
My inner child side really wishes they used the other soundtrack but whatever.
Agreed. I watched the series for the first time a few years ago, before Rebuild 2.22 came out, in subbed because the download only had subs. Went to watch Rebuild 1.11 in english just to see, last only 5 mins.
Any show that has Mary Elizabeth Mcglynn voice a character.
Do movies count?
>dat Jean Reno
Doubles as one of the extra-rare cases where it sucks NOT to be French
Hellsing ultimate. Boom.
yeah OP, even the flip dub is better.
it just fits better.
Plus, Anderson is fucking amazing in english.
