ADV IS THE SHIT. FUCK BANDAI. ADV WOULD HAVE INCLUDED A DUB FOR GL. FUCK YOU BANDAI. I WANTED TO HEAR CRISPAN FREEMAN.
WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!? CRISPIN FREEMAN?!
Whoa since when did /a/ watch dubs.
Since never, this is a troll.
ADV is responsible for some of the shittiest dubs I've ever heard.
/a/ is composed of more than two people
Are you kidding me? Have you been gone for a year?
Dubfags are the newfags that are killing /a/
i always liked ADV dubs...
Crispan Freeman wasnt even in the ADV dub...
BECAUSE HE WILL BE IN THE BANDAI DUB AS KAMINA OH SHIIIIIIIII
I've got some sad info for you. The dubfag epidemic has metastasized, and now they rule /a/.
Acknowledging good dubs is one thing. Bitching because you don't get a dub in the first place is another.
Ya I've been gone for a while. Glad to see /a/ has gone to hell while I was gone.
While this is probably a troll, I'll take a shot at a response. There will be a Bandai dub, they are just releasing subs first to give them time, since they want to cash in while TTGL is still somewhat hot. And Crispin is in a metric shit-ton of Bandai dubs.
And because everyone is a faggot this turned into a Dub Vs. Subs War.
Agreed. Serves them right for licensing utter crap and insisting on dubbing it. I'm glad they lost GL and the revenue it would bring in.
Extremely agreed. You cannot complain about the lack of a dub. A dub's value is only deemed after it's been done and listened to. If the dub doesn't exist, it's a non-issue.
I've been here the whole time. Dubfags aren't as common as he says.
Although dub note threads get a surprising amount of attention, considering most people who watched death note did so like 2 years ago.
I was at the ADV Panel in boston, and he asked people to raise their hands if they preferred subs to dubs, then vice versa. It was evenly split. I shat bricks.
A lot of anime fans are childish and fucking stupid. They don't come here.
hurr durr sure is hard to read dem words on da screen
>>A lot of PEOPLE are childish and fucking stupid
i like to have a DVD on my TV while i do other shit. is it that bad that i want it in english?
As in you were surprised there weren't more dubfags? I would have been.
Anonymous is a special breed. Most anime fans watch their anime months or years after it airs, and I'd argue that most of these people probably prefer dubs.
well at least AVD is tons better than Funimation that's for sure.
And despite what they say, we are better fans because of it.
That's not saying much.
Don't you dare speak bad about Funi! They have given so much and asked for so little. They saved One Piece from its abusive home for christ's sake!
As evidenced by the sheer tsunami of faggotry on most other boards, I'd have to agree.
It's irritating to try to talk about your hobby only to realize that most other people who share your interest are either idiots or kids or both.
/a/ was never good, but it's always been better than animesuki/ANN/narutofan/whateverthefuckelse.
Both awful. 'Anime experts' are just as annoying as any other fan class.
I am not gonna pay for different subs
A lot of anime fans (the vast majority, even) got into it through Naruto fansubs, and I'm sure a lot of people in this thread fall into that category. You guys have never heard the horrible dubs of the 90s, and thus you don't see how quickly the dub voice talent has been improving. You also aren't native Japanese speakers, so you can't tell if their acting is good or not. Look at Soul Eater. 2ch is RAAAAAGING over Maka's VA, meanwhile 4chan is fapping and cumming enough buckets to make it rain in Tokyo. Japanese VAs have always taken themselves seriously and continue to do so, whereas dub VAs are only starting to take their work seriously fairly recently, and it shows.
If you think the dubs you see on Adult Swim are bad, I challenge you to watch the first Akira dub, or the YYH movie dub without raging. Hard mode? Without laughing. Nightmare mode? Without cracking a smile or raging.
tl;dr: Newfags, you're making this anime_expert RAAAAGE.
I think one of the VAs called ADV out on the script being horribly translated.
I actually hated the voice actors that ADV was about to do.
honestly, i've always liked adv's subtitles the best. the last bandai subtitles i saw were haruhi's and they looked like and were shit.
Haruhi's dub was excellent. Crispin Freeman as Kyon = win. If you want subs, watch fansubs. There's plenty.
It doesn't matter how good the english voice acting is getting. In fact, telling me I can't understand Japanese only makes the case for subs stronger, because at least in English I can recognize bad acting.
>You also aren't native Japanese speakers, so you can't tell if their acting is good or not
Yes you can. The voice of a character is supposed to show the characters emotion and such. It may sound like gibberish but it is easy to understand when a character is angry, happy, sad etc.
>2ch is RAAAAAGING over Maka's VA, meanwhile 4chan is fapping and cumming enough buckets to make it rain in Tokyo
Where have you been. A decent amount of people in /a/ hate her voice
And are you fucking kidding? first Akira dub is epic.
In English, you can also recognize good acting.
>>2ch is RAAAAAGING over Maka's VA
2ch rages over any VA that isn't a veteran, and doesn't do a perfect fucking job.
No all dubs suck
Like how 4chan rages over any dub VA that isn't Crispin Freeman, Steve Blum, or JOHNNY YONG FUCKIN BOSCH?
That's all we got anyway.
Exactly. 2ch is the same fucking way. Listening to the douche-lords on 2ch is like listening to people on 4chan.
I guess we're not so different after all...
There's a lot more than that, but American dub VAs can be nitpicked a lot more than Japanese VAs to a native English speaker. I laugh when they're nitpicked for doing it right (ie, dub Suzaku sounded like an annoying whiney faggot. That's his whole fucking character).
>>dub Suzaku sounded like an annoying whiney faggot
Right? I was like "damn, they nailed Suzaku."
Also, Viletta's english VA is fucking sex.
Bandai is dubbing this show you fucking retard, it is coming out in 2009
the cheapo sets are just a way of getting the show out earlier for the fans
>>2ch is RAAAAAGING over Maka's VA
This is exaggerated bullshit.
And "all dubs suck" isn't?
And then he kicked their asses anyways.
Johnny fukken Bosch told half the crowd he would kick their asses if they didn't agree that dubs are great.
What so Japanese are actually angry about an English voice over actor/actress?.
You know, as much as I love anime, I can't stand the high pitched squeaky female voices in a lot of Japanese dubbed shows, thus my English dub loving persona.
When was this?
Damn I wish I was there, I would of said dubs are shit and that he was gay.
and 2ch only hates maka because she doesn't sound moe enough. It's like complaining about Ranka. FUCK YOU GUYS ENOUGH WITH THE SHRILL SQUEEKY MOE VOICES.
christ, does anybody actually understand what they read anymore?
Spoiler: Bandai is dubbing Gurren Lagann. However, they are releasing the sub only dvds first. The bilingual dvds don't come out until early 2009.
Sup guys? One of the best dubs ever just joined the party.
Already been mentioned Captain Obvious.
Dubs suck is the rule. There are exceptions to the rule, but they do not disprove the rule.
what anime is this. it looks generic and crappy
You insult Gakkou no Kaidan's dub? You don't deserve to know what it is.
Some dubs are good. /a/ agreed don't bother him about it.
All dubs fall within a range of shitsux to bad. So the best a dub could ever hope for is to be just bad.
dub made me lol
Cromartie is the only good dub I've ever watched. That and maybe some Miyazaki flicks.
And it was only good because the show reveled in its own silliness. The overacted voices suited the show.
Anything trying to be serious? Usually laughably bad.
