I liked the Pani Poni Dash dub better than the original.

The dub cast just seemed to have more of a dynamic, and they made the characters even more crazy and entertaining than they originally were. I'm not going to say it's "superior" since it doesn't really stick to the original script, but it was more entertaining.

If you remove the fuzz of personal bias either way, none. At best, they are equal.


One thing that I find interesting though is some early/mid 90s dubs. They had a tendency to edgy up the show, probably to narrow the demographic to older viewers and remove the 'cartoons are for kids' stigma. Cybercity Oedo 808 is a good example. Awesome dub, but matched by the awesomeness of the original cast that includes Norio Wakamoto and Kaneto Shiozawa.

Ghost Stories, that's it.

And I laugh at all the retards spouting nostalgia crap like DBZ. If that dub came out today where it changed all of the music, the OP/ED's, censored dialogue, censored vulgarity, censored violence and completely changed half of the character personalities, I wonder how the reception would turn out.

Death Note

Easily on par with the original, possibly better at times. Mamoru Miyano is good and all, but Ocean Productions really showed their skill.

I still think that Ian James Corlett is probably the best English Goku voice we've gotten. Manages to sound both high pitched and masculine at the same time, without sounding comedic.

The vocal inflections of English/white women don't really handle the "kawaii" voice/aesthetic as well as Japanese. If they can't get the rare English VA who actually has a naturally high-pitched/childlike voice, dubs are usually better if they don't even try it and just make the girls sound like American teenagers instead.

Not gonna say "better", but here are some dubs I liked:

> Steamboy
Everyone is British, grandpa is voiced by Patrick Stewart

> Evangelion
A lot of people hate this one but I got really attached to the voices for the main characters, especially Shinji, Misato and Rei. Some of the script adaptations were really inspired/clever (e.g. Asuka swearing in German, Shinji's "I'm so fucked up.")

> FMA
Vic Mahjonga is actually the worst thing about the dub because he's totally miscast, but the other actors and good script make up for it.

> Bebop
Overrated because Steve Blum and Wendee Lee cannot convincingly emote, but still very good.

> Gunslinger Girl
Has some problems with the script adaptation changing connotations of the original dialogue, but the voices are mostly really good and appropriately reserved. The fact that they kept almost all of the same VAs for season 2 (unlike the Japanese) is one of the only things that makes it watchable.

> Summer Wars
The only anime dub I've ever seen that's pretty much perfect. The performances are so smooth and natural you literally can't tell that it's a dub and not the original voice track.

> Ghost in the Shell stuff
Most of it is slightly overrated for the same reasons as Bebop, but still good. Except for the Bandai dub of GitS 2: Innocence, which is just plain fantastic to the point that it's practically necessary to fully appreciate the movie as an English-speaker.

> Death Note
For reasons mentioned already in this thread. Just the right balance between hamminess and believability. I just wish Ryuk sounded a little more monstrous and less like a chain-smoking clown, but that was the same as in the Japanese dub so w/e.

> Panty & Stocking
It has actual jokes. The dialogue crackles. Only major flaw is that they couldn't find an actual fucking black dude to voice Garterbelt and you can never not tell.

I don't know anything about the Japanese roots of the name, but I just want to say. I think "See-moan" sounds a lot better than "Simon". Imagine Kamina yelling SIMON...it just doesn't hold the power that "See-moan" does.

Native English speakers come in two categories: the delusional retards who believe that because they are able to listen to a mediocre dub without puking, it is better than original voice acting, and the elite few who have grown out of their egotism.

Non English speakers are the lucky ones who can easily see how English dubs are mostly shit and never better than original VA.
>>
>>101480513
For the Japanese dub, absolutely. But using the Jap pronunciation for the English dub is just retarded and just as jarring as if they said Saimon in the Jap dub. Well, not going to watch the dub anyway.
>>
>>101480493

> The Sky Crawlers
Just really good overall. MC is voiced by the same guy as Dean Venture/MC in Summer Wars. You can actually understand what they're saying when they're in the air, because it's not muffled out by static and Engrish.

> Martian Successor Nadesico
Some of the performances are pretty amateurish, but the script makes the whole show about 10x funnier. Yurika's voice is QT supreme.
>>
>>101480364
no si in japanese, only shi.

and in other languages that's how simon is pronounced (except with s sound instead of sh).

I can't help but notice that anime with a western or otherwise non-Japanese setting seem to get great dubs.

FMA, Bebop, Hellsing, etc.

I agree with you on the quality of the Summer Wars dub. Too bad the anime itself was absolute garbage.

>>101480610
No, I meant the english dub. Whether or not the name is Japanese or English shouldn't matter. It shouldn't matter if it's pronounced incorrectly, only if it SOUNDS wrong. And it doesn't sound wrong.

Americans are so delusional about dubs. Here are a few things you can expect from an American defending dubs:

- Side/female characters sound like shit, but it's OK, because I think the main character sounds better than his Japanese counterpart

- Voice tonality is more important than acting skills

- I am stupid or read at 10 words per minute, so subs are too hard for me

The only thing that changes in dubbing are the voices. The studios send the dubbing companies all the audio tracks over, including the japanese voices, and they just mute it and dub over it. So that sfx was still present in the japanese dub.

Also thats what makes fandubbing so hard. They gotta mix EVERYTHING, not just voices, and people are lazy when they do it too...

Cromartie is the only one I can stand watching.
The rest just have voice actors who can't act, they just say the lines in a horrible monotone and they overreact all the time.
American VAs can't act for shit.

Cromartie's was good because they actually gave life to the anime, even if the japanese one has Wakamoto

I think it would sound a lot better if a western company was given all the assets from the original production and have it rewritten and timed in a way that sounds natural in english.

I could see Sabat or Willingham pulling him off.

I just hope Viral's VA returns as Uzu.

Goldenboy

...

maybe GTO?

Cromartie was decent as well, but you miss out on glorious Wakamoto-sama if you go dub, so it's a tossup

Feels good man
As for good dubs I've seen
FLCL
FMA
Air Gear
And that's all.

Ritsu was fine, but why didn't they just let the other girls speak Japanese? People who watch only dubs would have to read subtitles for a little bit. Is it really that hard?

Confirmed for nostalgic 90's kid. Dbz is one of the shittiest dubs in existence.

A lot of the 90s Manga Entertainment dubs were actually recorded in the UK. To make them more internationally marketable, they created what were called "mid-Atlantic" dubs - either finding American and Canadian actors living in London, or else having British actors put on American accents.

It's kind of cute when New Dominion Tank Police has a yankee drawler saying "what the bloody hell?"

Because that isn't Sentai's dub, that is just a quick promo thrown together by Anime Network.
>>
Not only the english dub is superior to the japanese dub, but the spanish dub is even better that those two.

I don't even know what happened.
>>
Golden Boy and Cromartie Highschool comes to mind.

Especially Golden Boy, the guy voicing the MC is so over the top but it fits so well for some reason. He does really put a lot of emotion into his performance.

Sorry but you are retarded if you actually think an english dub is better than the original.

I mean, yes, there are a few dubs which you can watch without wanting to commit suicide but thats it.

There is no fucking reason to watch a dub, anyway. Why not simply watch the original where you know what you get?

Cromartie High and GaoGaiGar

the Stardust Crusaders OVA dub was pretty good

Kariya's voice was fucking top tier, but they butchered Lancer, Gil and Tokiomi.

El-Hazard. Even the Japanese prefer the dub, and I can't blame them. It really is THAT good, especially the VA for Ifurita.

I stopped watching dubs when I started watching anime as was airing.
But Jamieson Price and Liam O'Brien always will be top tier VAs for me.

Hellsing Ultimate.

Japs cannot into English accents and integra's japanese voice makes me want to hurt myself.
