So I'm not big on the sub vs dub thing, but I have a friend who only watches dubbed shows.
He is watching space dandy in dub, while I watch sub so I figured I would check out the dub as well to see if its any good.

Holy fuck is it bad, how did they manage to actually air this piece of shit?
The only voices even bearable are meow's and the gorilla's. The fucking narrator is the voice that pisses me off the most though

>I have a friend
That's your problem right there. Are you in high school OP?
>>
>>101625727
College
Know he by association he isn't big into anime just a gamer.
>>
>>101625673

anon, never watch anime with a friend

my friend only likes high school romance, and basically only shitty harem at that - nothing else. I got him to watch this, dubbed as that's all he'll watch, and he just played with his phone the whole time, then told me it was too hard to follow.
He's fucking 25.

This is all that awaits you if you watch anime with those you think are your friends.
>>
>>101625812
and you are still friends with him?
Kill yourself.
>>
>>101625673
It's the best dub that has been made in a while. What are you even talking about OP? I really dig the narrator's voice.
>>
>>101625870

Murder is justified in this instance, anon.
Do what you must.
>>
>>101625673
So is that necklace thing the thing that let's Dandy go around retconning universes and stuff?
Maybe that's why tengen toppa inferno cop wants Dandy.

The dub's OK. Nothing too horrible. I can understand why someone wouldn't want to read subtitles all the time. Myself, I still prefer the Japanese though. Hana Kana was wonderful.

But the biggest crime with the Space Dandy dub broadcast is the horrible OP and ED. I know that American commercials are longer, but what they made are awful. I'd prefer a shortened version of the Japanese OP and ED to what they did.

The Space Dandy dub is literally objectively a great dub

They added a shitty 30 sec jazz OP, I didn't finish the ED but it was different as well

Probably in a year or two tops.

The OP also had this horrible pop-art text. None of the cool Dandy dancing either.

The ED was cheesy synth and its visuals were just random scenes from the show.

Dub is alright, I don't like it but I also have a pleb friend who only watches dubs. The worst part is the cut out OP and ED which are both 10/10. I think the american voice actor makes dandy sound goofier than he's meant to be. Japanese dandy is superior just for BAKERO.

>>101626204
What? How could you even hate dandy when his tears flowed out of his eyes like pearls in the OP?

I watch anime with my friend all the time. He wasn't really into it at first but I showed him some entry-level stuff and he's a lot more into it now. It's not always bad, just know who you're watching it with.

The average for dubs is still shit. Shit is shit. Deal with it /v/.

I managed to make my casual friend who really only has watched a few shonen like FMA sit through LoGH with me. The entire thing, he loved every minute.

>>101627321
/v/ hates dubs too.

Even Reddit, Gaia and Tumblr hate dubs too. It's not just /a/ - it's practically EVERYONE.
>>
>>101627247
So you turned him into a pretentious faggot?

The dub is okay at best. Dandy should have been a bit more over the top, sorta like the dude that did Issac in Baccano. Not a fan of the QT autotune thing going on. Could have been better with out it, I feel. Meow is fine. Side characters, for the most part, range from okay to poor.
>>
>>101626457
I prefer japanese voices because I don't want to hear every girl sounding like Misty.
>>
Yu Yu Hakusho and FMA (Original) are the only good dubs
>>
Dubs always sound needlessly artificial for some reason. I'd prefer a voiceover, really.

YYH was perfect, they didn't stick with the Japanese script and made it actually funny, superior to the Jap version

The main characters in the dub are great.

In fact the only dub VA I've strongly disliked is the Boobies woman.

He told me it was trash after watching only the first episode. He also thought Trigun wasn't very good.

I cut off all contact with him shortly after this debacle.

I'm not the one who complained about the jazz funk OP music, but you've gotta admit that these two BGM pieces are nothing like the music used in the Japanese OP & ED.

But my bigger point was the visuals. The Japanese OP has Dandy & crew walking & Dandy dancing like boss. The Japanese ED has multiple dimension alternate universe Boobie equations. They should have re-edited those into 30 second versions.
>>
>>101629494
Apparently they found out they actually don't have the rights. The visuals are just cut from a preview video.
International copyright law is a bitch.

I like the Space Dandy dub. Aside from the OP and ED changes (which are just composed of music from the OST slapped on various scenes from the show) I think it's on par with the original Japanese.

Only show where the subs can be too fast to read is Tatami Galaxy, and that's pretty much undubable.
