Is it just me or is Comedy/Ecchi anime always better in the dub? Examples - Lucky Star, Seto no Hanyome, DXD, HOTD, Ouran Highschool host club, Sora no Otoshimono, FLCL, and many more?

Why is /a/ so ashamed that they watch certain shows in dub? It's not like it really matters.
>>
>>136138483
the timing of anime is based around the cadence of japanese language which is not very close to english language so english dubs usually have to mangle the script and use awkward phrasing in order to convey the scenes

really good translators can work around this and really good VAs can make it work

alas, really good translators and really good VAs don't bother with anime dubs

Japanese acting (VA or live action) fucking sucks.
If western actors actually cared about what they're doing they'd easilly make anime sound better in english than it does in japanese.
But they don't care (since it's a shame to be a voice in weeabo shit the idiots say) so we're stuck with poor acting on both ends.

Well done because you didn't address the problem big problem here. I don't think you knew about this but you aren't Japanese so you wouldn't get the jokes if they weren't subbed in English in the first place. The jokes in comedy anime are far more entertaining in English as they are told in a way that an English speaking audience can understand the humor. When you watch a comedy anime subbed weather you realize it or not you are mostly laughing at the animation and just understanding what's happening with the English text at the bottom of the screen. There are tons of good dubs your weebo brain holding you back from sir.

I've tried a lot of comedy dubs and they were all ass.

As for non comedy dubs there are obvious exceptions but most of them are really bad or mediocre mostly because of the shitty VAs and overly localized or just pplain bad scripts. The only reason to watch dubs is if you really don't like watching things in other languages for whatever autistic reason.

Did Seto no Hanayome really have a dub?

Also: it felt awful to download a high quality torrent of the series only for the translation to be ass and the opening to episode... 16 or 17 to be the new version instead of the original
>>
>>136141207
Well we can agree to disagree. I like dubs and subs as well believe it or not. I'm just tired of weebs thinking they are special or something for only watching subs when from what I've heard half of them sound just as corny and unnatural as bad dubs. If you don't believe me go over to /int/ find a Japanese and ask them yourself.
>>
>>136138483
Nah man. I never watch no dubbed show.
Not after I got my first PC
>>
>>136141101
you know if you have watched japanese shows for 20 years(drama,TV shows,movies ,including infomercials) ,finished 50+ untranslated VN , You need to be brain dead not to be able to pick up atleast 80% of what the people are saying. Maybe you're a retard , sorry if I offended you but it's ok , OP is retarded too because it's common so you don't need to be shy.
>>
After 400 anime completed, I've still haven't found a dub good enough to replace the sub.
The audio is complete garbage compared to the show itself, the heavy localization makes the show cringeworthy, and its always done by washed up, third rate actors who couldn't get a real job.
>>
>>136141365
Honedtly I'd rather listen to bad VA in the original language than bad VA in my language where it's not only easier for me to tell it's bad but also has an altered script exasperating the issue further

>>136141413
That's funny considering its actually proven to be impossible to learn any language from watching tv. I know this because I actually pay attention in school. So either you are learning Japanese from a different source or you're just talking smack.

You're pathetic. Any actual Japanese speaker laughs at your pretentious ass. It doesn't matter how much weeb shit you've consumed, it's not like you can't sit through any of it with no understanding of Japanese whatsoever. Unlike you, I'm actually bilingual with English as my second language and let me tell you, the only thing that matters is whether or not you can speak the language and you obviously can't. If you could you wouldn't be here trying to talk big like a fucking faggot.

I prefer the original Japanese voices over English dub.

A big reason for this is that I think Japanese sounds a lot better than English.

I will say that there are a few decent English dubs out there though.

Ghost stories is one of them simply because of how ridiculous it is. I got a few good laughs out of it.

Its because the sense of humor in a sub is localized and has major japanese influences derived from pop culture and history. Americans who watch this content dont understand this sense of humor so it has to be localized again for the english dub so you fat pieces of neckbeard shit can have something culturally relevant to laugh at it while watching it, faggot

You're still at it are you? I do not need to learn for I have no use of it. Maybe when I have some spare time. Why the fuck are you so adamant about your "proven study"?

This is true but also there are plenty of dubs that pull it off reasonably well.

Rarely if ever for fucking comedy series though, unless they're heavily rewritten a la Shin-Chan or Panty & Stocking.

What gets me about people who like subbed anime is that you aren't understanding them,

You're just listening to the melody of their voices, so you can't determine any flaws or mistakes the damn actor makes. It's the same as listening to a song in a different language.

People who prefer subbed over dubbed, (and this is my opinion) are just weeaboos who need to have everything in Japanese to make themselves feel like they "know" or "connect" more with the work.

There's no way in hell anyone who isn't japanese and or does not know japanese can even back up their claim of why subbed is better. You can't even understand them and I bet my ass people will say "Well, you can, I know by the pitches and changes in tone". Doesn't matter, if you can't comprehend what they're saying, then you're just listening to a fucking melody of voice and reading a damn screen.

That is why Dubbed is better and can't be compared to Subbed, when the debate is with someone who thinks subbed is better and doesn't know an Inch of Japanese.
>>
>>136138158
>Is it just me or is Comedy/Ecchi anime always cringeworthy in the dub?

Yes.
>>
>>136146682
it's better subbed if you don't speak japanese since the cheesiness of the dialogue doesn't stand out as much as when dubbed
>>
>>136146682
Dubbed sounds like shit though.

Even if you say it's just a melody of voices it's better than bad voice acting
>>
>>136138158
None of the examples you listed are better in dub
