>>101001216
Something you'll learn very quickly, if you act or know actors or work with actors or learned anything about acting, is that any performance is NEVER just the actor in question. The directors and the writers and the sound guys and all the editors and what not, they're just as instrumental as the guy saying the lines. An actor might be amazing in show 1 with great direction, but in show 2 he falls flat. This is especially prominent in anime dubbing, seeing how fast dubs are rushed out and how little pre-production, rehearsal, and input from the original creators they have.

Subs are not inherently superior, but most English dubs in anime have bad acting and bad directing. There are exceptions, most notably in high budget shit like Miyazaki movies, but the Japanese VAs are almost always better.

This is the biggest issue. Plenty of people enjoy dubs. I know I do sometimes, even if I shit on people who say how much they love dubs.

It's more an issue that people who watch a lot of dubs, or are huge dub advocates, are casuals or newshits who haven't seen much anime and so latch onto the most accessible form. No one likes that, and /a/, being polar as usual, obviously has to reject all dubs as a result.

Some dubs can be fun, though I'd say the original is almost always undeniably better. It's fine to enjoy them, just lurk more instead of posting them on /a/.
>>
>>101002341
This is the stupidest argument anyone ever uses for supporting dubs.

1. How mongoloid do you have to be to not be able to watch subtitles?

2. How many important narrative developments happen in that part of the screen anyways? Hell, most film, TV, and anime intentionally leave that part relatively blank for announcements or subtitles.

The bit where he tells her he loves her. In the original, it's this grand build-up to a single syllable (actually, I think it's two syllables, but nonethless very brief - "suki"), whereas in the dub it's a clunky 3 syllables - "I love you". Causes it to completely lose its impact, in my opinion.
>>
>>101000205
Honestly the only part of the Haruhi dub I didn't like was Haruhi herself. But that's understandable given that they had to follow up Hirano and her singing. All the other characters were pretty spot-on, especially Kyon, Yuki, and Mikuru.
>>
>>101003054

Understandable, but unavoidable.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much attention to detail Funimation put into the dub. For instance, Naota's dad's wordplay was kept totally intact and it helps his voice actor suited him. I also liked Commandar Amarao, he had good range in the dub able to sound serious when needed to and still played the comedically freaking out parts perfectly.

If you're having to judge something by how closely they resembled the original, why not just watch the original?

You don't have to focus on the subtitles when watching a dub and can instead enjoy the animation. I also find it that certain lines make more impact in your native language.

>>101004034
You can do that with subtitles too, provided an IQ above 75.

Seriously, most action scenes have little dialogue to begin with, and it's not like reading subtitles gets in the way. You look down for maybe a tenth of a second, and then back to the action. It's certainly not a conscious action once you get used to it. It bothered me when I was new to anime, but after a while you get acclimated.

I think you just need to watch more anime.

Funimation didn't do the FLCL dub. Synch-Point originally released back in the day in $30-for-2-episodes DVDs. I think Bang-Zoom did the dub for it.
Funimation re-released it after Synch-Point shutdown years ago.

Horrible grating voices of Jap women. I don't hear any emotion, might as well be someone bashing a bird's cage. The English dubs might all be monotone, bored, and going out of the way to mispronounce as many things as possible, but at least I know they use words.

They like it because it's exotic - which is an illusion of it being objectively good.
