You can claim this because most people heard the dub first so they affiliate the character with that voice, the voice is part of their identity. Thats the reason why most dubs suck, because they've seen the orginal. Thats why Goku in japanese might sound really off.

>>133128605
That's just my point though, good voice acting exists in every language, english included.
The problem is that the anime voice acting industry in america is properly fucked and in general more of a side-thing most of the people involved do, it's not their main job and it's not much better than fandubbing to be honest.
Some miyazaki movies also had incredibly good dubs in my native tongue.

Here's an opinion from somebody who hasn't watched Dragon Ball. Ever. I'm judging by watching videos of both the dubbed and the subbed parts.

The dub feels manlier, the music is better than the japanese one (though I'd admit, it lacks some variety). It actually gave me chills

The japanese sounds like the average angry grandma.

Blown the fuck out. Stop with your black-and-white mentality. Are subs almost always better? Of course. But saying "every single dub ever is inferior to the sub" is the equivalent of covering your ears with your hands and going "LALALALALA I CANT HEAR YOU LALALALALA"

Even when they use the original music from the original version, it's way less prominent.

Watch Paul and Ash's last fight before the league with subs and with dubs.
Subs had me pumped as heck, and when he sent in Ursaring and the battle theme shifted it was glorious. In the dubbed version the theme does shift, but it's not the "Shit is gonna go down" from the original.

I honestly think the voice acting in the dubs is better(also, Swedish dub>English Dub), it's the losses in other areas like this that really sucks.

GTO has some good parts at some points but some characters have horrible VAs. Though that goes with every dub really. Consistency is something I see most dubs really lack.
