No, you're not alone. I can't stand Spike's dub voice. His voice is too high pitched, it just feels wrong. The majority of people who like the dub are nostalgiafaggots anyway. I genuinely think Cowboy Bebop is a better show with the original audio.
>>120635672 I don't think that dubs are good, but for a select few shows they can be fun to watch during a second viewing. The only show I've liked dubbed was Berserk, mainly because it just felt like that sort of gritty, "mature" anime that I would see people watching as a kid.
>>120635708 Does anyone else see what I mean about Spike's dub voice just feeling wrong? I don't know how to describe it, but it just doesn't feel right. It's seriously like there's a smaller person inside of Spike talking, not Spike himself.
>>120639359 >dub is pretty commonly viewed as as good or better than the sub You can clearly see in this thread that it's the opposite. >Creator even prefers dub. Still no source to back up this retarded bullshit.
>>120639491 >Why would a thread with 50 posts on 4chan represent the majority? Neither do your dub threads though I do have a feeling that's what you're going by. >It's common knowledge, google it, you'll find it everywhere. You mean it's a retarded rumour constantly spread by imbeciles such as yourself.
>>120638367 http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/SugarWiki/SuperlativeDubbing?from=Main.SuperlativeDubbing >The most famous example is the English dub of Cowboy Bebop, which is just as equally liked as the original Japanese version. Another notable one is the English dub of El-Hazard: The Magnificent World, which is even stated by the creators to be the definitive voice cast.
>tvtropes I know, but this is where dubfags copy their arguments from. Just another example of their fantastic reading comprehension.
>>120639542 So you back your argument with posts from one thread and think that you have a valid point? There are threads like this one every couple weeks and it's very evenly split between people who like dubs and subs, but dubs for shows such as Eva and Bebop are widely accepted as good.

>>120640207 I doubt it's all this one tvtropes' page's fault, I've been hearing that long before TVTropes. I think the rumor stems from an old DVD extra interview. I can't verify it because I can't find them subtitled easily on the Internet and I'm not about to comb through ever interview that Wantabe ever done.
>>120641477 See >>120640914 And stop acting like an elitist. It's from a DVD extra, so buy the DVD if you want the source interview. Your opinion of subs being better is taken with a grain of salt in the first place, and there's nothing to refute the link besides your own personal opinion.
And I just wanted to say, HEY NOW, I never said 100% it was from a DVD interview, I was speculating at the source and could only find that as a POSSIBLE source if any. From the direction this thread took, it sounds like you dubfags took that and ran with it.
I prefer Bebop's dub too, but it's on you to prove the claim. I'm sure the DVD extras are on the Internet and if you can find them with subtitles then you can verify the claim.
http://www.mania.com/anime-expo-new-york-cowboy-bebop-movie-dub-premier_article_86108.html >Audience: What do you think of the American dub as opposed to the Japanese version? >Watanabe: The American version if very well made this time. My English isn' that good, but I though it sounded very good. >The director of the English dub was in the audience, Japanese sense of politeness with the dub director in front of him. Not one word about it being superior or preferred though.
Also according to som random ANN user, which is still a better source than tvtropes: >Just as a point of reference and/or interest, I was at a discussion/autograph evening with Shinichiro Watanabe a couple of months ago here in Edinburgh, and 2 episodes of Bebop were shown, in Japanese as that was how Watanabe had requested they be shown.
Not to sincerely post in this thread, but the "bang" at the end was delivered with resignation, exhaustion, and isolated finality in the original version. When Blum says it it's got horrible reverb and he is all genki when he says it like some videogame catchphrase or something. Totally ruined the mood.
>>120643409 IMO GitS:SAC is pretty equal in dub and sub. I overall prefer the Japanese version, the emotional, intense moments are done better in Japanese. "SAAAAAIIIIITOOOOOO" vs "Hey Saito! Hand over that weapon NNNNNOW!"
That said, Steve Blum is a lot better as The Laughing Man than the original. You can tell in that one scene where he threatens the medical CEO on live television that you see again and again. Blum gives a lot of depth to the performance, whereas the original guy just sounds flat with the same ol bishounen voice you've heard a million times.
Poor judgement is using subtitles when better options are available. They do detract from the experience, and there are very few instances where people can enjoy an anime without that hindrance, so not taking advantage of the opportunity is foolish.
>>120635582 >Cowboy Bebop A lot of us saw that when the dub was easily available, and one of our first anime to watch, not really understanding the liberties dubs generally take for localization and other reasons to enjoy subs.
The preference for dub in Cowboy Bebop is mostly nostalgia or simply liking the version many of us were exposed to at the time.
There are a handful of anime that I prefer the dub over the sub.
DBZ's sub voices are awful. Goku's voice sounds like either a little kid or an old woman. I don't give a shit that she was the VA for kid Goku, it doesn't fit at all for adult Goku. Also the original YGO series I prefer the dub because of Kaiba's extra snark.
Right now I'm convinced the only people who bash every single dub are either elitists or people trying too hard to fit in.
