You shut your whore mouth.

Panty & Stocking's dub was fucking godlike.

>>135717275
2/10
>>
>>135720714
na man, it deserves more than that, overall, I'd say that the dub was a solid 7/10

>Misato
Dub: Raspy but cute voice, great at shouting orders, commanding yet with also a sense of vulnerability, decent crying performance, good for comedic lines.
Sub: Basic Japanese female voice, sensitive and yielding.
>Rei
Dub: Amanda Winn Lee can do a higher-pitched breathy voice, but also has a deeper sound from deep in her throat giving her performance more depth and feeling.
Sub: Generic little girl voice #7,623
>Asuka
Dub: Fantastic performance from Tiffany Grant who genuinely loves the character, cartoonish sounding and over-the-top at times, but also expressive and emotive when she needs to be.
Sub: Super high-pitched, shrill, annoying girl voice that does not sound realistic at all and makes your ears bleed.
>Shinji
Dub: Really corny and cartoonish, but gets better over time. About halfway through the show the character has alot of emotive scenes that are at least adequately performed.
Sub: A voice so weak and frail that it sounds feminine most of the time, especially when screaming.
>Ritsuko
Dub: Strong and powerful voice of a smart scientist woman with a successful career in a position of leadership, a bold performance that matches her smart-ass, kinda bitchy personality.
Sub: Soft-spoken and low voice, lacking confidence and pride.
>Gendo
Dub: Cold and distant, but with an intelligent and cunning sound, like he has something to hide.
Sub: Generic deep male voice #5.
For a great comparison of Gendo's voice, compare the sub to the dub of the cemetery scene in episode 15.

Also, ADV got creative with many different vocal effects in some of the more abstract scenes, and it adds alot to the atmosphere of the show. For a great example, compare the scene of Rei's introspection in episode 14; in the dub for that scene they added some effects to her voice that contributes more to the mood of that scene than what they did in the original, which was nothing.

Even that spanish dub was better, I still have to hear a singe english dub that is not trash, every other language has some that are actually good.

DM Yugioh's dub is better, I agree
>>
>>135723551
Slowly getting this one off the backlog. It's like Baccano in that it really just HAS to be voiced in English to shine.
And similar to OP, Desert Punk also has a far superior dub but they just improved the comedy in the script rather than throwing it out the window and passing out cocaine to everyone.
Interesting side note: it may be the only anime to have a true live action OP.
>>
>>135724958
Desert Punk does have a pretty damn good dub, I really loved the comedy when I first watched it and then felt nostalgic for it when I watched it a second time years later.

Also, there have been other shows with live action in the OP.

That reminds me of A Time to Screw.

Spice & Wolf, and PSG are the only ones that really come to mind as clearly superior. Most other stuff is merely on par or has elements that are better but still suffer (Haruhi having based Kyon, but kind of shit everything else, for example).

Still, I think dubbings come a long way in the last decade and it's hard to outright dislike anything I've seen lately say for maybe K-ons dub

Samurai Pizza Cats and Metabots were utterly incredible dubs.

>>135727788
Crispin Freeman absolutely MADE that dub. Everyone else paled in comparison, even Wendee Lee and JYB.

naw man, you're a fag.
Wendee Lee was great and so was Kari Walgren.
>>
>>135730054
Wendee`s voice acting definitely was great, but still incomparable to Crispin. Also, points deducted for her singing.
I guess Kari did good, too. Didn`t really pay attention since her character wasn`t so pervasive.
