Why were Kill La Kill's voice actors so fucking bad ass?
>>
Except for Nonon.
>>
>>119436179
I liked her snarktastic croak.

>>119435408
Is the dub any good? I just recently saw it subbed and I'm wondering if this one's dub beat the odds.
>>
>>119435408

It was the right sort of person and personality in each character.

Nonon being a supreme bonermancer even when compared to the female leads is kinda proof. The voice. The attitude. The outfits. All worked out just right.
>>
>>119436493
The dub is one of the worst dubs of the last decade.
>>
>>119436179
I didn't like her voice at first, but then it just grew on me.
>>119436493
Nah it ain't good. Saw the first episode and everything felt out of place.

dub does fantastic with voices for the most part, but you may not like Senketsu's voice as it isn't NEARLY as deep as the Japanese version.

and about Senketsu, I heard a lot of people bitch about the name pronunciation in English. "Senkets" and "Junekets" are how they are pronounced here. Had to go back and NOT read the subs to notice they weren't exactly wrong in doing it this way.
>>

>>119436913
Looks like I'll have to hear it for myself. I try not to bother with dubs, but a good dub can go a long way.

Only truly good ones I've heard have been Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Deadman Wonderland.
>>
>>119436913

Japs drop the u
they do that shit all the time
however it doesn't change the fact that the word is Senketsu, not Senkets.
It sounds fine with a Japanese accent, but the English VAs funnily enough don't have Japanese accents, so should pronounce the word in it's entirety.

Senketsu's dubbed VA is fucking terrible.
>>
>>119435408
They sound like they had fun recording it all, like they understood that the tone of the show wasn't serious grimdark so they were able to really just throw themselves into the over the top roles.

Characters were all very distinct, their personalities could be heard coming through every time they spoke, and they were usually accompanied by a kickass theme to tie their dialog together.

Nui's theme in particular made every little thing she did seem menacing, like you never wanted to take your eyes off her, her every word was a red flag.

Power and discipline just radiated off of Satsuki.

Really the strongest thing about this show for me was the characterization. Everyone's performance and theme just tied them together, so all the characters had presence.
>>
>>119437191
None of them can act. It's particularly bad with Ryuko's va and Senketsu's va which is a big problem.

It's like watching a show starring Persona 3 Fuuka and Persona 3 Fuuka.
>>
>>119436556
Not him, but I've only seen the trailer. Senketsu was horribly miscast and Satsuki/Gamagoori needed to get their lines straight, but Nonon was one of the most seamless transitions from Japanese to English I've ever heard, and she was already the best voice in the original. Is she just not enough to carry the dub?

how did the translation for goku uniforms/kamui turn out? that seemed like the most awkward part to put into english
>>
>>119437746
If anything it shines a light on how bad the whole thing is, where this one side character is comparable to the originals next to the rest being terrible.

And Goku and Kamui are just Goku and Kamui. It sounds about as awkward as you'd expect from people who already awkwardly deliver lines that are entirely English.
>>
>>119437191
Seriously, why would dropping the U be okay for the English dub? Who's that fucking stupid?

Native speakers drop sounds off of various words in various languages all the time, but the words still sound right because they're in the right accent, context, and inflection. It doesn't work when foreigners try to do it because they aren't native speakers.
>>
>>119437746
They just left them as "goku uniform," which sounds ok, and "kamui," which does not. I can usually overlook mispronunciations if it sounds unaffected but you can hear the VAs stumbling over it.

How's that shit taste working out for you? Her voice is fantastic. All the voice acting in that show was top notch.

Trigger clearly decided to go with A+ sound direction over animation quality for their first anime project.
>>
>>119437191
Well, it's an Aniplex dub. Pretty sure the Japanese directors were the ones that told the actors how names and such should be pronounced... they usually have final say.
>>
>>119437191
I feel it couldn't win either way.
If it was pronounced how they said it in jap people bitch about it not being how it would sound in english.

On the other hand if they said how it would sound in english, now you have a bunch of people raging about
>Sen Ket Soo

>>119437746

It's crazy how fitting that voice is ESPECIALLY since everyone originally thought it would be the worst and hardest voice to try and properly have an english Dub handle.

All they'd have to do is give them, I dunno, a short pronunciation lesson before recording? This is the kind of 'minor' detail that actually makes all the difference, but the people actually moving the money don't give a single fuck so it's ignored.

I imagine that's what clothing heaven must be like.
Although I still believe Senketsu comes back to Ryuuko some day. If there's other life fibers in space, then it's possible Senketsu may be able to rebuild himself

This OST contributed massively to my enjoyment of the show. Shit's jammin' yo.

I never got tired of the transformation sequence because of Before my Body is Dry.
>>
>>119439638
What I'm saying is whether the kept the "u" and had it sound as it would've for english or omitted it to sound more accurate to the japanese sound as they chose to do, people would've bitched regardless.

Honestly. I do like the dub, but I wish there was slightly more emotion from the VAs. It seems like some of them , especially Gamagoori and Senketsu, are almost ways speaking in the same tone. Concerning Senketsu I thought they were going to make him sound more human over time, but he's only changed his tone a few times.
also, holy shit Takarada's English voice was an unexpected direction but I suppose it's fitting. In general some of the English VAs are vulgar and blunt which can be funny at times.
>>
>>119440080

eww no jesus Moko is so boring
>>
>>119440262
I kinda thought they were going for that since it's like that in the original pre-synchro, but then episode 5 just drops the ball straight through the floor.

I really don't like how vulgar the dub is though. Like Ryuko's an insult machine but they're all more lighthearted than anything like perpetually frowning caterpillar eyebrows, but then the dub it's all "You little shit bitch I'll cut your fucking throat" like it's desperately trying to be P&S when it's not supposed to be.
>>
>>119440262
I think the dub is decent at times. There's so many things that jar me out of it, though, whether it's poor delivery or pronunciations (it wouldn't be so bad if they just didn't labor over them), or just bad writing, in some cases.

Sanageyama's particularly grating. His VA is ok but he talks like a frat boy when in Japanese he's the honorable delinquent/samurai wannabe and actually speaks pretty politely, especially when you compare him to Ryuko (who does the delinquent rolled R's, slurred vowels, etc thing). Even Satsuki uses more informal speech than he does. I don't know if it was a consequence of making the dub more "off-color" or what.

Ryuuko almost seems bi-polar at times in the dub. She can be talking one second and then yelling obscenities the next.
I could see Ryuuko to be one to swear, given her delinquent past, but as you said it seems more like they're trying to be like PSG and do it for laughs. Which I can't help laughing at because how poorly placed or timed some of the conversations are.
The dub really could have been better, it's not god-awful, but it certainly isn't amazing either.
