About to start watching this.

Should I go with jap audio and subs or is the dub any good?

Asking because some older shows do seem to have a good dub.
>>
The answer is never dub.
>>
>>118651343
But dub can sometime be better as the voices and accents adhere more to the setting of the show.

Though a good dub that does this pretty much exists only for a couple of shows.
>>
>>118651219
In my opinion, the only thing that really matters are music and visuals. I prefer the Japanese audio, but that might be nostalgia goggles. I watched the show when a German channel aired it completely in two nights on a weekend, so I have no opinion on the English dub.

Dub is mediocre at best. You want to stick to subs for it and the OVA.

It's an old show with the stereotypically "meh" dubs of the time.

Enjoy that OP though. Most of the show's budget went into it.

Deedlit a best.

If anything the 90's at least tried compared to the crap of today.

If you're trying so hard to defend dubs, then watch the damn thing dubbed.

Why even bother asking for opinions if your mind is already made up?

Overall never.

Baccano is excellent in English.
>>
>>118658793
Baccano and Hellsing Ultimate come to mind, excellent english dubs. Or the spanish dub for DBZ
>>
>>118659372
>Hellsing Ultimate
But Nakata, man. What's-his-face pales in comparison.
>>
I liked the dub.
>>
>>118658756
Wondering this myself, it seems to adapt the same material at a slower pace from what I've read.
>>
>>118659372
The Hellsing dub is actually awful. Compare it with the subbed version and see for yourself.
Baccano dub is great except for those 2 frenchies.
>>
>>118651381
>Cowboy bebpop
>Baccano!
>Kurau phantom memory
The last one I am half way threw I have happy as shit of the different accents in it. It's like they just walked the streets and grabbed no ones with more than english accent. It was a nice surprise.

Well guess one way to find out. Thought the OVA was really rushed plotwise, didn't care for any of the characters nor did I understand why Deed liked Parn, and Parn never really become a good swordsman. Maybe it will be like that original Gundam for me, loved the TV show, hated the movies.

They wanted and received 500 dollars in order to buy the blu rays and then never released anything past episode one. They did release episode two last summer though.

In "fairness" another group did release a blu ray version so maybe they feel there is no reason to release their own anymore?
>>
>>118658793
Black Lagoon. They even figure out how to translate some of the jokes...also anything with engrish that bad takes major hits on quality.
>>
>>118658793
DBZ
Eureka 7
Black Lagoon
Outlaw Star
Cowboy Bebop
Golden Boy
Yu Yu Hakusho
Baccano, but fuck that show

Castillian dub.

The dub was decent by dub standards. Nothing grating but nothing that remarkable either. Had a lot of the same people that worked on the Slayers and Pokemon dubs.

I'd to say that dubs for western settings are superior, but it always seems weird because of the animation of the lips, even if they are synched correctly.

At least with Japanese, we are not taking cues from the lips since most of us don't know Japanese to be able to tell.
>>
Why, why would one ever, in any show, in any language, watch a dub?
>>
>>118658793
Trigun.
>>
>>118671174
Because the settings lends itself to dubs.

Bahamut is one series I can think of that would be great with a good dub.
>>

I like dubs where the Japanese lack of profanity affects the believability of the setting.

Why did Lodoss explode in popularity around here recently?

>>118672101

Stop autisming so hard about this shit
>>
>>118672279
it's always been relatively popular among those that enjoy watching older shows

one of the few classic fantasy anime

other stuff like rune soldier louie is mediocre crap

jap audio and subs. Deedlit is my waifu

dub for Deedlit

Speaking of fantasy anime, is Gokudou good?
>>
The animation was so fucking bad.
>>
>>118673850
It's from 1990.

The fuck were you expecting?
>>
>>118665420
>Eureka 7
>better with dub
No

I watched it dubbed first too, back before I ever started watching subbed anime. The JP audio is 100x better.
>>
>>118674008
Quality of animation has nothing to do with when it was released.

It's ongoing, just slowpoke.jpg (Status: All eps encoded, translated, timed). A couple of eps at the editor, and the 2nd half at TLC.

I prefer the Lodoss dub but that might be because it was the how I first watched it on saturday morning anime on scifi channel. It's not like the Outlaw Star dub where I go back and realize it's not as perfect as I remembered.
>>
>Going from the BD's of the OVA to the T.V series

My eyes.

Also ashram basically makes the show.

Chromartie had a great dub

I always preferred the dub songs for the corny 80s fantasy movie sound. But I have shit taste.

The performances are way different though.

More detail, less consistency.
>scanjobs
Less detail, more consistency.

I typically like lower budget cel more than low budget ditigial era stuff but the action sequences in Lodoss are pretty fucking bad.
