Faye's voice was completely fail. How the fuck can you compare that wannabe actress fat ass shitty American who does the same slutty tasteless voice for all the fucking roles she plays with Megumi Hayashibara?
Ed's voice... I don't think they could have made it more annoying. Shit, if I talked with a high pitch voice I could do better than the idiot who did her voice.
Spike's dialogs were completely butchered to make him sound like a "badass" American style. Not to mention the shitty acting.

If you watch the DVDs with dubs and subs you can tell that they're almost two completely different stories.

>>10173180
Whoever did Kintaro's voice really needs to go back to acting school or completely change profession. Seriously, all he did was yell like the fucking prick that he is. I'm surprised you're not deaf after watching the dub.
>>
>>10173224
The only reason you should watch the OVAs in Japanese is because of Norio Wakamoto, and most recently Maaya Sakamoto.

ITT this the dub/sub argument. Because even though most of us can't understand moonspeak, we think sub is better because we think moonspeak voices ALWAYS fit.

idiots.
>>
I remember reading a story about some guy who had a friend over from Japan, they were watching an anime, with subs, and the Japanese guy burst out laughing. The other guy wondered why his friend burst out laughing, the Japanese guy then stated that the acting was just so god damn awfull that he couldn't believe it. He also pointed out he had seen some of the series before in English and that the acting was far better, they then proceeded to watch the dub instead.

In other words, alot of sub-fans can't understand a word of Japanese and do not have a clue if the acting in them is good or bad.

A prime example (apparently) of this is Gundam Wing, the Japanese acting is meant to be god awfull in it.

Not really... my French isn't really that good and I can tell their dubs are incredibly shitty (you should listen to Urkle's voice). You can also see anime from the 80s and compare it with current anime and you can see the acting has improved.

tl;dr probably fake story, and logic very flawed.

I'm down with the whole moonspeak thing, but these Japanese visuals just kill the shows for me.

The only good dubs of any movies ever are the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns, and even then they had the main character doing his own lines. Most other dubs can only be appreciated due to their unintentional comedic value. A few are decent, but I have yet to hear one dub ever that was better than the original.

There are tons of things that you could be making money off of in america and anime isn't one of theme.

Anime still makes a profit. You don't have to be king to make money. With that logic there shouldn't be any stores but Wal-mart or fast food joints not named McDonalds or KFC.

This thread has some good dubs, but why hasn't anyone mentioned the DMC dub yet? Is it because the show doesn't exist kinda like the second game, or didn't anyone even bother to give the dub a try seeing how shitty the original was?

Reuben really makes the show a lot better, too bad that's like winning a 100 yard dash against a one legged man.

There is no such thing as an acceptable dub. Dubs are only tolerable or intolerable. If you prefer dubs, you can turn in your weeaboo badge at the door.

Also I keep seeing faggots list the DBZ dub as tolerable. The early dub for the show was tolerable. It had Brian Drummond as Vejita for instance. They did a tolerable job.

However when CN finally shelled out the cash for the end of the Freiza saga, the dub actors had changed. Suddenly Goku sounded like a highly functional retard, Vejita was now a Jamaican with a cold, and Krillin was an even more enormous faggot. The show quickly became intolerable.

TL;DR = you like dubs, you're on par with the baby furs to me.
>>

because DMC was boring, shitty, and uninteresting in the least bit?

I prefer subs/dubs/RAW/to deride everyone of all opinions equally because I am a weaboo/can't read/an ultra weaboo/a smug asshole elitist who likes to look better than everyone else. Anyone who likes dubs/likes not dubs/likes not raws/voices any opinion on how he thinks animu should be viewed is a complete and total idiot, and should go commit hara-kiri/kill himself/commit seppuku/die a slow violent death. Everyone is just too stupid/elitist/American/a fag to understand my perspective. I am more subarashi/betterer/KAWAI/of a smug asshole elitist than you will ever be.

Because otherwise they wouldn't sell. Different priorities and buying power, gb2/school.

We're the ones who are saying that companies exist to make money. We are aware of that. We're not saying it's bad, we're saying it's normal. You're the faggot living in a fantasy world who thinks companies license anime to save the starving children in Africa.
>>
So long as the licensing companies deliver the dvds unedited with a jap language track and subs in tow, I have no problems.

However 4kids has released dvds with no subs or Japanese language track. Same with Funimation for example. Fuck them.
>>
>>10174763
Which Funimation DVD?
>>
>>10174709

Hopefully they'll eventually go out of business as well. That or stop dubbing and actually produce a quality translation for once.

>>10174758

I think is point is that some of the dub companies seem to not try to put any effort into their dubs and are thus just throwing it out there as fast as possible to make money.

But the others, especially those who take too damn long to release a new DVD, are making a stronger effort at it. They're still out to make money, but they're trying to give quality as well.

Don't know. Were they licensed by the same companies?

>>10174763
they release their dvds with lower quality compressed episodes though. r2 DVDs come with 2 episodes because it fills the whole disk where with r1 they stuff like 8 episodes on a disk after compressing them

>>
>>10174788
Basic economic strategy of quality or quantity doesn't mean that "care" more it's just business.
>>
>>10174812
because shitty quality anime won't make money in japan, but here shitty dubs do because kids and faggots pay money to watch it

How cute he doesn't think the copy-pasta crap shovelware of anime doesn't make money in Japan.
>>
>>10174776
He means 15 year old VHS.

Seriously, I once rented a DBZ vhs and it was dual audio with subs.

I don't know what he's talking about
>>
>>10174872

Naruto doesn't make money in Japan?
>>
>>10174830
question

They get two per dvd and we get anywhere from 3-4+ in some instances. Are they paying more in yen to complete a series than us since they have to buy more dvds or are they ending up even? Dunno how easy that is to answer with the currency difference and varying economic scenario.
>>
>>10174824

You must be young. He's 100% correct. In the VHS days dubs and subs didn't come on the same tape like you can get them now on DVDs. The licensing companies (all of them) would sell the VHS sub copy usually around 5 bucks more then the VHS dub copy.

We never got an explanation for that.
>>
>>10174913
yes, they pay more money per dvd than American's do anyways
>>
>>10174913
Yes they pay more for DVD when the currency is calculated for exchange rates. Someone has done the math for several series and the prices were through the roof compared to the licensed releases.
>>
>>10174878

Because it's true? You can try to deny it, but losing a source of extra income (licensing fees from the US) would have an effect on the Japanese anime industry. It might be drastic, but it would still have an effect.
>>
>>10174898
i'm not talking about storyline i'm talking about ridiculous amounts of QUALITY and FUTAE NO KIWAMIIIIIIII AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

>>
>>10174988

The only effect it would have would be that the japanese companies got a bit less money.
>>
>>10174988
They have become comfortable and fat off the money from here. If and when it dries up, you will see a direct impact over there.
>>
>>10175053

lol no
>>
>>10175046
And they wouldn't like the bit less, a few million here and there excluding things like toy sells, for basically doing nothing.
>>
I think one of the points being made earlier was that componies which dub anime can not do a good job with the VA work because they are doing it for the money.

As if to say that the Japanese componies can do a good job because they are in it the love and sparkles.

No actually the Japanese componies are in it for the money aswell.

So both the Japanese and American Componies are in it for the money. However they can both still care about there customers and try to do a good job with there voice acting.
>>
>>10172604
I see what you did there.
