Do you like English dubs?

Why do you like English dubs?

What are your favorite English dubs?

What could be done to improve the general quality to English dubs?

Would you put in any personal efforts to improve the quality of dubs?

Pic only related because the dub cast was announced today and one of the VAs has the doofiest name in the world. (Is Knickerbocker a real last name, seriously?)

Bad dubs also welcome to laugh at. Paging Finnish Digimon.

This is what I don't get about subfams. You guys whine and whine but you never want to do anything to change anything. "But they should just keep Japanese VAing only!" It's been proven that series with dubs sell more. C'mon, fix what you hate! Within a reasonable budget.

Learn when to exaggerate your voice at appropriate times instead of constantly

But apparently they don't care about what they're doing ultimately and just want paychecks at the end of the day so this industry will march on the same way.

You use that word. It does not mean what you think it means.

Also, don't confuse sales in Japan and sales in the west.

where can I watch the dubs?
for the lulz

There's a reason why dubs are shit, and it has nothing to do with Japanese vs English, it's just the limitations of trying to adapt a script into another language while having to match mouth movements/the amount of time used to speak. This creates tons of awkward phrases, forces inaccurate translations, and kills any opportunity for emotional acting. It doesn't help that the two languages express emotion very differently. Until dubbers start adjusting the animation of the mouth movements slightly dubs will never improve. I don't know why they don't do this because it's really not hard. I mean for fuck's sake littlekuriboh does it all the time in his shitty videos.

That said I did enjoy the PSG dub, possibly the only dub where it's comparable to the original.

I think is more of the studio hiring cheap voice actors and not having enough direction.
Are there any good dubs? Its not like the west has shit voice actors.

Dubs always are inferior to the sub counterparts. In the original Japanese, you have handpicked seiyuus from hundreds of potentials, whereas in English dubs you have the same 5 VAs trying to change the pitch of their voice.

You can get a decent dub going with some talent (see: Miyazaki, esp. Howl's Moving Castle), but the problem of creator's intent still remains. It's almost impossible to capture the creator's heartfelt feelings without them handpicking the voice.

Not to mention certain lines sound terrible in English just based off the script, and you're really dooming yourself to failure from the start.

In many cases, the seiyuu and the character they're playing become intertwined. Would you watch someone dubbing Robert Downey Jr. in The Avengers, or would you just watch the damn subs (assuming you didn't know English)? I feel the obvious choice would be the latter.
>>

Fuck back off to reddit.

You go to reddit and never come back to /a/. I'm serious, reddit loves dubs and I'm sure they would love you.
>>
Reminder that subs are shit because you're not fully able to appreciate the voice acting and animation when you have to interpret everything to text.

Nevertheless, usually a better choice than the dub because most dubs are shit. The moral of the story is that you should just learn Japanese already.

I like English dubs -- Ghibli films for their UK cinema run usually get proper English actors with appropriate regional accents.

What I loathe and despise are American dubs. If I'm going to have to listen to foreigners, the Japanese voices are far more euphonious, even when they are squeaky little girls.
>>
>>123555204
They all suck and the only ones I actually like are ones where I saw the dub first, which means I then go back and watch the sub but i've already been tainted by the friggen dub.

So I stopped watching dubs. Problem solved.
>>
>>123555204
>Do you like English dubs?

I'll watch them, and if I first saw a show in english I can't watch it in japanese (Adult swim stuff).

>Why do you like English dubs?

I honestly don't care most of the time who voiced my Mongolian Puppet shows. Certain actors will make me watch a dub or sub more often though.

>What are your favorite English dubs?

Ghost Stories, Panty and Stocking

>What could be done to improve the general quality to English dubs?


Larger talent pool, Higher budget and a less autistic fandom

Would you put in any personal efforts to improve the quality of dubs?

and get in the way of fapping to Rin, I don't think so.
>>
English dubs are shit because the people hired to do anime voice acting are usually bottom of the barrel and failed to make it into radio, TV, film, etc.

Japan has a highly competitive voice acting industry with high schoolers going to voice acting classes while competing with veterans and other newbies. Furthermore, voice actors are more than just a voice for a character. They serve in radio shows and the occasional TV program.

This doesn't mean that the voice acting is perfect. Talentless idols with contracts to certain companies always get a chance to voice a character. However, despite this, Japanese voice acting is still of higher quality.

There are good English dubs, just as there are good Japanese dubs of English shows. But, there's too much shit to even believe that English dubs have a chance.

For starters, anime would have to be more popular again in America in order for companies to invest in better voice acting.

This is fucking amazing (reminds me of GitS). The English never sang nip, did they (I've never seen the dub)?
>>

For some reason it just fucks with my skull meat. I can watch a show in japanese and be fine watching it in 100 different languages, but if I was tainted by the english first it is locked that way.

It's Wendee Lee. Personally, I don't think the vocals are bad, but the production they decided on feels awful. It's like she's singing into a wall. It lacks impact.

Also, the Russian version is Russian.

The western fanbase comes mainly from 4 continents - Yurop, NA, South America, Straya. Total population - around 1.8 billion. Only half billion come from an English speaking country, the rest are used to watching media in foreign languages with subs.
English sounds just as alien to me as Japanese does. I'd rather have my cartoons in their original state, voiced by top-tier professionals rather than bottom of the barrel failed actors.
I want lolis to sound their age, not like a 30+ year old alcohol addict miserably failing their attempt to sound young.
I don't even notice the fact that I'm reading anything. It's a non-issue.

TL;DR - No, I don't care about english dubs.
