So today, I decided I'd finally get around to watching Azumanga Daioh(slowpoke).

I'm not one to usually care that much about voice acting, but the sheer squeakiness of 3/4 of the cast so far is grinding my nerves off after watching episode one. Should I just stick to the subbed ones instead? Or is that worse?

Original voice acting is as squeaky as any other anime with lots of schoolgirls. I dunno about dub, but 10bux says it's worse.

What are you talking about, the voice are....

I usually don't care about the VA, and the english one was the first I found...

Sage for idiot OP.

I am appalled by your choice to watch a dubbed episode of Azu.
>>
>>10122343

I'm talking about the English dub

YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

Don't bother with the dub. The English VAs are vastly inferior to the Japanese VAs, and there are jokes that get lost in translation (some have to do with Yukari being an English teacher.)
>>
Is it really that criminal to watch a dubbed anime?
>>
>>10122366

If you're on Gaia, no. That should give you an idea what Anon thinks about it.

Depends on the show. Azumanga is not one of those shows to watch in English, ever.
>>
>>10122366
Yes. Very few anime should ever be watched dubbed. Azumanga is not one of them.
>>
>>10122366
Not in all cases, but in this case the English dub tends to be pretty fail.

Japanese voices are kinda squeaky but I don't find them annoying. Dub is absolutely terrible. I actually posted in /t/ looking for a good torrent because I bought a box set and It doesn't even have the option to change the language to japanese - Pissed off customer >:(
>>
The thread is hogging a perfectly good page0 slot that could better be used on Bleach or some shit.
>>
>>10122418
What sort of fail box set did you buy?

Kaorin's voice is wonderful

and I don't even want to think about dub Sakaki doing the karaoke scene
>>
So um, anyone got any decent sites for undubs? I usually use lolipower in the event I can't, or else torrent it, but I can't really be arsed doing that.
>>
>>10122538
just get dual audio and turn the dub off
>>
>>10122538
Google KAA & get their torrent from that page.

These are the best subs, not sure if any DVD ripping group used these instead of the DVD ones.

>>10122578

7 or so seeds for 5 gigs?

Good job, I raged a little.

Only two I've watched that were quite watchable were G Gundam and Cowboy Bebop.

Rest...I don't want to talk about.

>>10122701
goldenboy dub is also superior

/t/ rule about licensed material I imagine

I enjoyed the Cromartie High School dub.

KAA

Azumanga

You should be able to figure this out.

ADV dub is frankly bloody awful. Osaka sounds like an inbred hick retard, Kagura and Tomo sound like 'like, you know, whatever,' and the translation is pap.

>>10122453 It's pretty bad but not as riddled with fail as the translation of her character song on the radio in Yomi's bedroom in ep.19 - 'My heart is that of a young girl, and I parachute.'
