how do dubfags deal with this?

It is nice when there's a decent dub every now and then like Death Note and Code Geass.

I have a feeling that english VAs go over a line, say it naturally, time it, then speed up or slow down certain words-accentuating some that they think adds "flavor"-to meet whatever length is needed for the scene. Comes out as forced as shitty.

Most dubs are done cold.

Which is to say, the voice actors don't get a chance to read the script before recording, so most of it is done on the spot, with the director telling them how the character should be acting in the present situation.

I wonder how Japanese dubs of a western show sound to people who grew up speaking Japanese, in comparison to the original English.

>>120620896
>dubfags will actually defend this
>>
>>120620864
I think bad voice actors just default to 'announcer inflection' because it's well known, easy as fuck and doesn't actually depend on (and therefore adds nothing to) the context in which it's said.

I don't know if there's an actual term for the 'announcer inflection', but I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about. The one any half-baked radio host uses, or sports announcer, or shitty VA.
>>
>Japanophiles still think one is better than the other

Fun fact: To a native Jap, they sound just as corny as the dubs sound to you. People do not talk like cartoon characters be they in English or Japanese.
I loved those threads on 2ch that would tell of greasy gaijin who would talk like animu characters. I was cringe worthy as it was amazing

I blame it all on sound directors being total shit and the VAs trying to sound like total caricatures instead of actual people.

Has Digimon dubbing ever actually been good though?

The first two seasons are pretty solid kids shows and have nostalgia going for them. Tamers has some good moments but has weird decisions throughout. I don't recall any of the other shows having particularly good dubs so Xros would just be continuing a trend. Though I only watched about two minutes of the dub so I dunno if it got unbelievably worse later on.

To be fair, those 15-second spots are only designed to promote awareness a show on Sentai's linear cable channel, and are rarely more than one-and-done deals. They don't reflect casting choices for an actual dub. I'm not sure Nozaki-kun is confirmed for a dub at this point.

It annoys me that you're here and that by you simply being here you in turn attract more of your ilk.

See: naruto threads

They used to not exist in any real way here. Until more and more of the faggots started showing up, leading to here being 200+ post naruto threads on /a/. Something that a few years ago would have never happened.

And to be completely honest, nobody that finds dubs the superior watching experience is the sort of individual I want to discuss animu with. Because you've already confirmed that you have shit taste.

Savers' dub was actually rather faithful(I mean, compared to the rest) to the source material excluding one MOTW that had to be full OC donut steel or else they wouldn't be able to air the episode, the names and the soundtrack.

In their defence, there were a few jokes that they nailed down fucking pat. Osaka's "I smelt a fart that was not my own" was a masterpiece in English. Other than that, yeah, it was shit.

>>120622005
I'd say the worse dub to how good the show actually was (like a ratio) award probably goes to Mawaru Penguindrum. Excellent show, horrific dub. Another one that got me was Medaka Box's dub. No, if Zenkichi sounds like Adam Blade from Needless you are doing something wrong. Even the people that did MedakaMENT (the abridged series) dubbed it better. That said, Kumagawa was actually pretty good, so they got that (his entrance at the end of episode 12 of Abnormal was as good as you could expect it to be) right.

You know I'd go as far as say any dub after like 2010-2012 is competently done. Like there's no guarantee that it'll be good, but it won't be horribly, ear rape bad or kung-fu movie hilarious bad. At worst it'll illicit a giant "meh" response. You get some that are surprisingly good imo.

But if you rather listen to the Japanese VAs then do so. Most times they're pretty good on their own right save for a few examples of "they're obviously only doing this for a paycheck."

There is a difference between good, over the top acting, and bad corny shit like that. The acting can be over the top and silly and still be good acting. Which is a concept I guess you don't understand, if you think that what you posted was better than the Japanese.

Anime is intentionally corny and over the top because that's what's nips consider to be good acting. To most Western ears it's not desired so when done in English/your native tongue it'll sound over the top and cheesy.

Mediocre voice acting is a small price to pay for having the luxury of not reading and just watching, but generally what I do is I watch the first episode subbed and dubbed to see which is better and base my decision off of that.

Easily the worst thing about dubs is the lack of variety in voice actors, after you watch enough dubbed anime, even if its a good one you're gonna tired of hearing the same voice actors, because you begin associate certain voices so strongly with a character, and its weird hearing goku in berserk for example.

Shows like cowboy bebop prove that dubs can work and be just as good if not better than original, but more often than not they are mediocre at best.
>>
>>120623880
What is wrong with you people? Please, please learn to read. I'm begging you.

I said that there is a difference between GOOD over the top, and BAD over the top. This applies to English, which is what we're talking about. The problem is that they are trying to emulate the Japanese way of over the top acting, but in English. It doesn't work. You can't take another languages inflections and apply them to your native one and expect it to come out right, especially since the original is an Asian language and English is obviously not.

Thats just not true, I've been plenty involved with characters, whether its subbed or dubbed. You just don't want to believe that you can enjoy an anime without the original voice actors, but its still very possible, most people fell in love with anime by watching them dubbed on television, even if they switched entirely to subbed later, dubbed was good enough to make them want to dig deeper into anime.

If a dub is terrible, most are, then I'll prefer sub. If the show is set in Japan sub for immersion. If the dub is decent and the show isn't in Japan I'll probably prefer dub. None of this matters because I'll usually go through shows twice for both versions anyway. What do you fake weebs not watch both out of dedication to your hobby? Fucking casual poseurs.

Everything you both just said is very inaccurate.
On average, an adult can read about 250 words per minute (college student average is 300), so let's go with the higher stat and say around 5 words per second.
Since most sentences have around ten to twenty words, you waste from 2 to 4 seconds of focus for every sentence that appears on screen. You may not *think* you're doing it, but that's just a perception bias, and you're an idiot for not considering it.

Depending on how much dialog there is in the show you watch, that can add up a lot. Even if it doesn't, there's still a good chance you're going to miss details, and this is not even considering the fact that you have to make a mental switch each time your focus changes from reading the text to interpreting the scene.

That is, your vision functions quite differently to something like a video feed; your perception is largely based on movement and changes, so continuous focus is pretty important if you want to take in a lot of visual information.

Of course, neither of you idiots would have considered any of that, since you can't tell what you missed and therefore do not consider it missed.
You don't know what you don't know, and all that.

Again, disclaimer: I watch subs, but I'm not going to pretend that there are no caveats to doing so.

You can be an adult and still enjoy dubs though, age is a factor, but I think its more about experience and knowing the difference between the 2. Honestly my opinion of dubs has dropped since getting serious about watching anime, but only because of the inconsistent quality of them, at the end of the day I'd rather hear a decent dub than watch it subbed, but its not always an option, which is not a problem since I'm perfectly fine with watching subbed anime, I can't lose.

I'd even go a step farther and saying that we notice the scripts are shitty. A lot of work comes off better when read than spoken and vice versa. A classical literature book would sound silly when acted and an award winning movie looks silly when you just look at the screenplay.

I disagree with. A lot of the inflection may not be similar to how it would be in English, but it does seem pretty similar to French for instance. The actual voices are still good, and you can tell from even a bit of a multilingual background.
>>
>>120622102
>I think you're overestimating it a little
A little, perhaps, but you can hear that people are speaking fluidly and with emotion. A thing not present in most English Dubs.

Of course you can't say subs are always better, but most of the time they are. Most dubs have very little work put into them.

You could evaluate them on a case by case basis, but I don't see why you would. Try out the dubs which are supposedly very good, and perhaps the dubs for any series you may be particularly interested in.

Honestly, I don't see the point in watching dubs, I mean some of the common arguments for dubs are down right retarded.

>They're better because I don't have to look at them
>they're better because I can watch the animation better

The only decent argument I've ever come across for watching dubs over subs is that you can more easily relate with the characters if they're speaking the same language.

I don't really understand that, but at least it's not silly. The one problem with it in my eyes is that how can you do that if they all talk like bored robots?
>>
>>120626512
But the point is that people don't use that inflection in everyday speak; it's exclusive to animation.

If you walk into a foreign country and someone starts speaking to you, you will completely understand at the very least how they feel about you. You don't need to understand the individual words to understand the emotions that are trying to be conveyed, at least in a general sense.

Learning the meaning of each individual word that your chinese moeblob girls say will not suddenly make the acting bad.

>>120626559
It seems pretty similar to actual french inflections (at least for Quebec french), so it doesn't really seem ridiculous to me (except for loli voices and whatnot). Are you sure that's the case?

>>120626616
Well part of that is just our nature due to evolution and cultural adaptation - lower sharper/growling pronunciation signify anger or negativity while higher pitched usually denotes more joyful feelings / positive. Also half of that understanding is body language something which is variable degrees of quality in animation. However you just miss out on a lot of specific social ques when you don't understand a language. Not that it matters anyway, this whole argument is just silly.
>>
>>120626765
>No, knowing those chinese moeblobs sound nothing like the actual language will suddenly make the acting bad
No it won't.

It's no different from a theatrical accent. No body speaks in the inflections they use for Othello, but they still sound decent.

Most English VAs are not doing an exaggerated speech, they are staggering through a possibly poorly edited script. It is possible to tell that the Japanese Seiyuu are not doing this.
>>
Dubs can be good when there are things English-speakers can simply do better than Japanese-speakers. For the most part that means portraying American characters and black people.

The problem is it tends to all go to shit when there are cute girls involved. Which is weird because plenty of Western CARTOONS can easily find good cute girl voices.

And even IF it's a "westaboo" show, they still fuck it up nine times out of ten. Black Lagoon's dub was great, but, in comparison, look at fucking Jormungand's.

Well yeah, a lot of dubs aren't that bad, but the criterion for any rational person for watching a dub should be the fact that it's better than the Original Language. That's not the case here. That's very, very rarely the case.

But you're not, at all. You aren't debating with me. In fact you're doing the opposite, every post you've made that is directed at me has been "No, I'm not talking about this". You think that because I disagree with you that you can't talk to me. That says to me that you know what you enjoy is shit and you just don't want me to call you out on it. If you think it's actually good then post it.

Jesus fucktits, man. You think I'm the only one in the thread who hasn't tried to soothe your sperging soul?
I'm not going to bother because you're a dickwad; not because I don't have anything.

>That says to me that you know what you enjoy is shit

Seriously, read what post and maybe gain some insight, nigger.

I remember seeing a similar thread but with cosplayers. 2ch mentioned that western facial features managed to fit anime characters better than Japanese facial features and they've held western cosplayers in high regard, higher than most Japanese cosplayers.

It was fucking WEIRD.

>>120628699
Most likely because they don't see our uggo cosplayers.

At least jap women can manage to sound 10-20 years younger. English speakers are pretty much the worst dub actors, pretty much any language dubs are better than english.
>japanese version
>"Hello my name is mizuku"
>english version
>"Heeelloo mai name is sally!"

Proof of what?

Cannot agree with any of these, good God. Especially Eva, I can't understand how anyone likes that piece of shit dub.

Every damn, time.

Mark Hamil is literally the only superb voice actor in the history of western animation.

>>120628955
It's not even that they sound better. You always watch something in its original language.

Would you watch The Seventh Seal dubbed? With like Death doing a spooky voice and Antonius being voiced by Crispin Freeman or whoever the fuck.
