>Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted, repetitive or stereotyped behavior. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent before a child is three years old.[2] Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize; how this occurs is not well understood.[3] It is one of three recognized disorders in the autism spectrum (ASDs), the other two being Asperger syndrome, which lacks delays in cognitive development and language, and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (commonly abbreviated as PDD-NOS), which is diagnosed when the full set of criteria for autism or Asperger syndrome are not met

This board... IS CORRUPT!

The Earth is swarmed with low-quality merchandise, which give rise to poverty, starvation, isolation... The people... The people can not even find regret! The production staffs only concentrate on improving their invincible marketing empire and limitless profits... And yet a well-produced work is a dream beyond a dream! They spend their capital on figurines and art books without a backwards glance and have given up on trying to understand each other! Could they possibly have the right call themselves "victims"?! No... they do not. There is only one thing that can bring true stability and control to this board, and that thing is ACROSS!

Do you know what this board has too much of? Moe. A published material that is circulated in exceedingly large quantities. However, do not confuse it for true manga, for it is base and lewd!

The brave new board that ACROSS will build will need no such rubbish!

I actually think Excel Saga is better subbed. My vote goes to Samurai Pizza Cats.

No, it's not. In fact, you should feel incredily bad about yourself for even thinking that it is. I assume you haven't even seen Excel Saga with the original Japanese cast for you to be making such ridiculous claim, because if you had, you would know that Mitsuishi Kotono's performance as Excel was absolutely fantastic and to discredit it by even suggesting the dub actor of Excel and the rest of the cast were even 1/10th as good is moronic.

I'm suddenly in the mood to rewatch Excel Saga. I wish I could read the manga. Is the whole thing online anywhere at all? I haven't been able to find it and it's not at any bookstores or library near me either.

But seriously, read the Excel Saga manga. It's different, and some people like it better. It's more focused on social commentary than parodies, and has interesting exploration at other characters.

Why was dubbed anime so much better than it is nowadays? I can't think of any good explanation. Aside from majority of today's VA's just sucking shit.

I think it's the level of effort they put into the dubs. Yes, when ADV got their hands on it, it tended to disappear down a hole forever, but if they ever came out with it, you could count on all the OSTs being converted to english songs and etc too. They were too thorough for their own good.

Just a reminder:

The best dub is still worse than even the worst sub.

Partially survival of the fittest memory. We forget shitty anime dubs, losing them to the streams of time, while we're swarmed with both good and bad dubs today. You cannot tell me that the dub of Project A-Ko is any good.

Another factor is money. Dubbing companies were a lot more stable back then, while many companies have closed down now.

Thirdly, back then, people didn't care about accuracy as much as entertainment. We got stuff like Samurai Pizza Cats because dubbers both respected the original work and were willing to modify it to suit a wider audience. Think about how the dub of FLCL replaced a gimmicky Japanese soda with Crystal Pepsi, or how Ranma 1/2's dub replaced Japanese poetry quotes with Shakespeare quotes. They got the meaning across better by straying ever-so-slightly from the source, instead of being 100% devoted to reproducing every single element accurately.

Fourthly, more dubs were done in Canada, land of the free, true patriot love, glowing hearts, maple leaf forever, God save the Queen.

just a reminder: anime in Japanese is also "dubbed"; they do the animation first then dub the voice acting to match the lip flaps, exactly the same as with English. And your a moran.

Crispin Freeman as Tsume
Steve Blum as Darcia
Joshua Seth as Hige
Mona Marshall as Toboe

The one who strained her vocal chords, or the newer one?

Either way, I cannot help but hear a little voice in my head saying, "If you order me to strip down, I'LL STRIP DOWN! As a soldier of ACROSS, I would do an-nee-thing for you, Lord Il Palazzo... OH, PLEASE, TAKE ME, LORD IL PALA-"

I would watch a porno like that, honestly.

Excuse me? I looked it up to understand what you were saying, but best I could figure out in the context you used it is that it is an Irish surname. Sorry, but that's not my surname at all. I'm not even Irish. Too bad.
