Yuu Asakawa is probably one of the more conversational level english speakers. Still has a bit of an accent but almost has a valley girl tone.

Didn't Miyuki Sawashiro do the dub voice for Puchiko? Though when I met her, she said she only knows enough to order food.

Horikawa Ryo does. He runs his agency with the dream of producing talent capable of voice acting in English.

Apparently she lived in Australia for 18 years. There's a little bit of gaijin accent in her Japanese.

It is the exact opposite for me. Reminds me of the selected Singaporean VA for that one MS-tan that I can't remember. Funny, it sounds completely wrong if they are too smooth at English and try to make their Nip sound convincingly foreign. Mangled parodies are still better.

Many dub actors do have talent, but the ADR directors are terrible and/or won't do multiple takes. It's even worse now that there's pressure to dub a show as it airs. It's a cancerous situation enabled by apologists who are terrified that the industry will go back to sub only releases. They will never criticize a dub, even if it is objectively bad. The industry heads know this and are laughing all the way to the bank.

That's because they hired a native speaker for her English lines.

Isn't he a halfie?
>>
>>151648858
Probably not, but she should be aware of it, they talked about "male genitalia" after all. The formal name is just "Penis" which is Latin for "tail" so it doesn't really make a difference between Schwanz and Penis.
I mean "Schwanz" either means "dick/cock" or "tail" so it isn't that bad. If it weren't for the sexual connotation of the dialogue taking place.

Well areola isn't really a term in German it would be "Warzenvorhof" literally "wart fore court".
So "the thing around the breast wart (nipple)".

>>151654291
Yeah, she's great when singing English. There's an accent but the grammar and pronunciation are overall correct. Funny, I read somewhere she doesn't have much confidence in her English speaking abilities
>>
>>151635195
"Fluency" is very subjective. From Japanese standards, probably the majority are. The problem is that Japanese instruction in English is appallingly bad and centers more around reading comprehension than anything else, skipping pronunciation and conversational speech too often for an English speaker to consider the majority of them fluent at all. The lucky ones are the ones that get sent over to the US for homestays or manage to get into a school with non-Japanese instructors, they tend to come out with a much better grasp of the spoken word than their peers.

On the converse, at least in the US, the bulk of Japanese instructors are Japanese.

I've seen anons say Sayaka Ohara (Irisviel, Erza) has flawless English but I've never been able to find an example of her speaking it.
Googling "Sayaka Ohara English" gives results making that claim as well, but I'll be damned if I can find a clip.

>>151635346
This is why german dubs are much superior, there the anime VAs are VAs from mainstream shows such as Scrubs, Malcolm in the middle and the like and as such the quality is singificantly better.

I might even prefer FMA and DN in german

Yeah, I was blown away at how good the English was at time in KinoMos, especially Alice's mother. I legit thought they hired a native speaker until I hear one line that had an accent. I didn't know Erza did her voice. Good to know.
