The only way Funimation (or any licensing company) makes money is with dubs. If they simply sold subtitled anime, people would laugh at them and just download the show for free online. Which is what people do and why the anime 'bubble' popped in the west.

So yes, they have to be full of themselves. Because the only people who still buy anime DVDs in the west are the idiots who buy dubs. And catering to them is the only thing left.

Dubs don't need to be good quality, since they're just being done for people who would listen to literally anything you put in front of them as long as it isn't a dirty foreign language or reading subtitles.

And they actively try to make dubs as fast and cheap as possible, considering all it does is eat into their back end profits.

This. I had tons of friends in high school who would only watch dubs. Then would bitch that tons of anime 'sucked'. And it was entirely because of the fucking voices and changed BECAUSE of the dub.

Its the dumbest shit out there. You're basically watching an entirely different show. THe only thing the same is the animation, with every other aspect (voices, script, scenes, etc) altered. Hell, if you watch the show subbed and your friend watches it dubbed, you can't even talk about it together for very long without major dependencies popping up. Every other sentence will just be about "Well that was different in the dub." "Well the dub voice actor was played by a guy so he didn't make that funny voice." etc.

Why the fuck are we still putting up with this shit in fucking 2014?

Naruto is hated on /a/ because it was obsessed on /a/ for literally 3 years. But that was a special thing which happened at the very establishment of /a/ (2005-2007).

Most of you people here now weren't even here or don't even remember the endless Naruto threads on early /a/. And are just jumping on the hate bandwagon because its popular. Not saying its bad to hate Naruto, but just saying you're doing it simply because tons of other people are. And you don't even know the original source of it. Just like tons of other 'memes' that started on early /a/.

Naruto once was the most obsesed show on /a/. Like Eva is today.

Naruto was obsessed on /a/ well into the filler arcs. Its precisely because the show was becoming to bad and people kept obsessing over it that Naruto started to hate it on /a/. But more the fact that EVERY week when a new episode came out, you would have literally 10-20 people rush onto /a/ and make new threads screaming 'OMG Naruto episode 127 is out!!!!11' Just hoping to be the first person to post it on /a/.

This is why Naruto became hated on here. And why Moot started banning it.

The reason I hate Naruto has nothing to do with /a/. Long ago I watched the first dozen or so episodes, decided I didn't really like it and that was fine. But then I kept encountering dumbasses in real life who were practically venerating Naruto and wouldn't shut up about it, and that pushed 'I don't like it.' into 'I'm disgusted by it.' Years later, the Naruto craze has died down a little, but I still encounter it.

>Why are dubs such a big deal exactly?

Because a dub by its very nature is an alteration of the original product. Its job is unique as its only reason for being done is to alter an existing product. For the sole purpose of appealing a product to an audience who doesn't want to watch the original product in its native language.

So by its very definition, a dub is a changed product. It is no longer the same product that the original creators made. It has been filtered by a middle localization company with a new script, new voices and sometimes even the animation content being changed. In effect, a dub is a different product.

It is up to you now if you want to claim the changed voice is 'worse' or 'better' than the original voice. But considering the changed voice is just that, 'changed', I personally find that to be a massive negative. Any alteration is a negative in my mind. Just like I wouldn't want to know I was watching a Hollywood movie where content had been altered or removed, so to I don't want to watch an anime and know that content has been altered or removed. And if you are watching an anime that has been dubbed, there is no way to avoid it. Some content is going to be altered. There is no way to NOT alter content when going from one translation to another. The only way to limit the loss in translation is using the original audio with subtitles. There will still be some loss of translation, but FAR less of it. And you can at least double check what has been changed by comparing the original Japanese audio to the subtitles

However, if you dub over the voices, then you have no way of knowing what has been altered in any form. This is a very brief description of what goes into dubbing but it should suffice.

Can you help me understand a literally translated dubs differences from a subbed show?

Basically, what I want to know is, if you were to literally transcribe the show from its native language into the foreign language, and then dub it that way, whats the difference between the sub and dub other than the voice?
>>
>>102186036
You can't literally translated Japanese to English since they are too different, what happens instead are mistranslations or things get censored in favor of a wider audience. Names might get changed, characters butchered, or if there is word play involved it just doesn't transition well and you get something entirely different in favor of the audience understanding it.
>>
>>102186036
A lot of people don't like hearing this, but there's not really such a thing as 100% literally transcribed Japanese. It's a very nuanced language and lots of things like implications get lost in translation because it would be too long/weird to write out in English.

This is pretty much a literal translation, The characters all speak to each other in English anyway. In a sense the Japanese version is the "dub"

Save for when they go to Japan and as an example, when the one guy pleads for his life but "cannotu speaku englishu."

When dubbing a show into any language, they have to make a lot of context changes just to make it work into another language.

For example, let's take the simple 'sa' example. The simple word 'sa' in Japanese can mean literally dozens of things, based on the 'context' of how it is said in a conversation. Of course, this will not translate 100% when brought over to English. So what happens? They have to alter various examples where it is used.

So suddenly, an example where a Japanese character would have simply said a one word response, "Sa", they have to replace a whole phrase like "I don't understand" or "You gotta be kidding me" or "Whatever man..." in English. Which both looks akward in relation to the animation and is a total change in relation to the script.

Now imagine 'little' changes like that multiplied about 50-100 times over the course of each anime episode. And worse, dubs try to cover it up even more by altering the dialogue further, making characters say shorter lines to fit mouth movements or switching the context of entire sentences (making a character say something at the end of their dialogue chain where they said it at the beginning in the Japanese version). You starting to see how dubs are just tons of alterations on top of other alterations?

A sub on the other hand, they also have to make some of these same 'context' changes. The difference is, you're still getting the original Japanese audio, just with subs overlayed. So even though you're seeing the slightly altered 'context' changes in the subtitles, you're still 'hearing' the Japanese. And if you watch subs long enough, you can place where the context goes in which part of the Japanese sentence (as long as the subtitles are done correctly that is). With a dub however...you're shit out of luck because the entire thing is just altered. The placement of the sentence, the context and everything can be wherever the fuck the localization crew wants to put it.

How is it possible that whats going on, in say, SnK is too complicated to translate into English?

How could we, as English speakers, not have the capability to create accurate dubs for what the Japanese version is conveying?

I'm just confused about the whole dub/sub thing. If we can translate it with subtitles, surely we can then find some equal spoken wording?

The original acts as a "dub" since the characters WOULD be speaking to each other in English because nobody except Rock and the other Japanese can speak Japanese
>>
>>102186641

If you think every single random scumbag on an island, those arms dealers in town, the Columbian assassin woman, etc would really be able to speak English, you are just as dumb.

Shows use the language of the target audience for ease of viewing. The show was made in Japanese so everyone speaks Japanese. Just like when Hollywood makes a movie in Japan, all the actors still speak English (unless they have a native Japanese actor).

You're just trying to argue that everyone should speak English simply because you watched the dub. But its really dumb to try and find some role playing excuse that everyone should speak English simply because they're 'not Japanese'. Do yo even know how the real world works?
>>
>>102186789
Well on that subject, why wouldn't they be? The main crew is all American save for Rock. Roanapur is in Asia, true, so they would be speaking some Asian language in the town if needed but English would certainly be spoken in private or with other English-speakers. After all, it was clear that many people in the town were foreigners since it was a sort of crime capital.

They would be speaking multiple languages, but rarely would they be speaking Japanese.

Only in specific examples where every single character knew English. Otherwise, you have the exact same issue as any other show, where basically you just use one default language aimed at the viewer.

In that case, it doesn't matter which one is used. Japanese or English. It only matters who the TARGET VIEWER is. And therefore, someone who speaks English would claim 'it fits better in English'. While someone who is Japanese would say the opposite.

What are they saying in their language that we aren't saying in ours that makes it hard to translate?

You know how the English language has a fuck-ton of words? Well not all languages are like that, or they have words that don't quite have an English equivalent. The sentence structures are completely different too, and other factors like this come together to make it a bit difficult.

I mean, when I took Japanese my professor told me there were some phrases and sayings that were hard to translate, but for the most part, everything normally translated fine.

I'm not really understanding this monumental task to find context and english words that match up when Eren is telling Mikasa to attack and be herself and all this shit. What, was he saying in Japanese something that was like 10 times more complicated? I'm sure we can find words to match that.
>>
>>102187864
The english word serendipity is an amazing example.

Eren could walk up and say
>That was serendipitous, Mikasa!

And people laugh, haha, happy accident, a good mistake, etc.

Now translate that.

How the fuck are you going to find a single word that describes what serendipity means in a foreign language.

To even explain that word you have to use a sentence to someone if its in a foreign language, maybe more. You can't just say it means pleasant surprise, that loses quite a bit of its meaning.

Its this way, except with tons and tons and tons of Japanese words and statements.

It is possible, but for the most part it's quite a task. I wouldn't know, since I just started studying kana, but it is hard finding appropriate words.

There's this tryhard anine fan girl in my college class who's seen a trailer of this anime and obsesses over it. Yet she refuses to watch it subbed because "How can you see what's happening?"


She's like this with Final Fantasy 7 too.

This is going to be a long year. I can tell you that.
>>
>>102189038
I kind of understand what she means.
>>
I don't really get why people think that the dub changing the meaning is necessarily a bad thing. If I can relate to the jokes better than that's a good thing right? I'm not gonna laugh at some reference to japanese culture I don't understand. Really I don't get what the big deal is here, other than the obvious negative effects of having more newfags on /a/.

Does she think Funi will run some kind of alibinifcation filter over the animation to make it easier to watch with non gook slit like eyes?

Does she think the Japanese engineer their content specially for slit like eyes?

Because most people tend to watch airing shows where fansubs come out only hours after an episode actually airs, and they get used to the Jap voices. So when a dub does come out and they hear the English voices 90% different to the originals, they'll automatically hate it. It also leads them to wrongly think all dubs are bad.

It's perfectly natural, though - people won't like change at first, but then they'll get used to it eventually. But 99.9% of the time sub-watchers don't even try to accustomed to dubs so they don't have the capability to accept it.
>>
>>102189077
>I'm not gonna laugh at some reference to japanese culture I don't understand
No, you're going to laugh at an attempt to replace that joke and/or reference, which can be worse.

Another thing is the quality is pretty shit for most dubs, but original Hellsing is one of my favorites.

>>102189008
No, K-On is not aimed at little girls.

>>102189202

No, see, she means she doesn't want to spend her time reading all the text instead of watching the action. They talk a lot in SnK.

My bad. K-On is aimed at Japanese High School Girls.

Big difference, you 25 year old basement dweller buyfagging naked action figures.

She probably just reads really slow.
>>
>>102189222
>quality is pretty shit for most dubs
Yeah that's true in a lot of cases, although I probably couldn't identify a shitty sub if I tried. SnK probably will get a decent dub since it's hyped up to be the next bleach or death note or whatever.
>>
>>102189260
I had that problem too, I figured out a very simple solution. I was sitting too close to the screen.

If you seat yourself further back, at least 5 feet away from the screen for my 23" screen and 10+ feet away for my 40" you will never have this problem. Since your eyes will have to travel less distance to shift form subs to action and often not travel at all due to your expanded range of sight now.
>>
Is SnK the new Naruto?

>>102189296
Not to mention Mike McFarland is on this one. Seeing how he directed FMA and One Piece it shouldn't be unlistenable.

>>102189261
>K-On is aimed at Japanese High School Girls.
Which is why it was late night anime.
>25 year old basement dweller buyfagging naked action figures.
I don't even have a basement, nor do I buyfag because: 1. it's expensive and 2. I don't like figures.
But keep up the ad hominem, maybe you'll convince me that it is MLP.
K-On is seinen too, but that doesn't really apply since it's the manga.
>>
>>102189202
She's retarded. I'll leave it at that, I've had to work with her sometimes. She's also obsessed with Japan and acts like a weeb but absolutely refuses to watch anime in Japanese.

I've called her out on her bullshit sometimes.
Here's something non anime related, she hates the resident evil games because they're "Not like the movies" which she thinks came first and I've had to correct her so many times.

This isn't a bad thing.
