That show was garbage.
This one was good.
this made me think, didn't champloo have a good dub
>Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live! (As he kills Krillin)
>(After killing Krillin) Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that a mortal lives or is able to preserve himself on this world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle. If you do not fight, life will never be won!
>You have become great through struggle. (Addressing Super Saiyan Goku)
>I must not become a servant of the masses. but their master! (Powers up to 120,000,000)
The Kai dub was outstanding.
I was surprised how well the dub actor was able to pull of the YEARTs, arguably YEARTed better than the original. To bad that the dub inserts a bunch of lame jokes were more miss than hit
What makes a good dub? I liked Code Geass dub but can't ever say why, can't put my finger on it. I remember thinking the showdown with Suzaku and Lelouch was well directed in the last episode.
In the end it's all down to competence and accuracy. Most dubs fail at this, Sentai Filmworks is especially known for hilariously awful dubs (the famous Guin Saga, GuP among others) but very rarely do you get one that's well done.
I think comedy shows are easier to dub just because a lot of those anime contain jokes only Japanese born-and-raised audiences (not just those who are familiar with Japanese culture) can understand. If it's appropriate and if it's done right, western humor can be funnier to western audiences.
I don't think a lot of people were that fair in criticizing Haruhi's English VA for her singing "God Knows". Aya Hirano is a professional singer, of course she was going to sound a lot better, but I still think her dub VA did a fine job on her own.
>there are people who watched Space Dandy in japanese
I haven't heard anything this patriotic in a while.
>Welcome to the NHK
>Yu Yu Hakusho
those are all the ones i can think of off the top of my head.
It didn't sound amazing but the dub actually put some humor in this """""comedy"""" show making it tolerable.
Also, I can't find a link to it (or even remember the episode number), but in the scene after the timeline changes and Luka becomes a girl but Okabe still insists he is a boy, in the dub he adds some little joke that I am sure most of /a/ would complain about being unfaithful to the source, but I found funny.
Wouldn't watch this show subbed, the dub is too damn great.
I watched Steins;Gate subbed first and loved the voice acting, then I rewatched it dubbed later and surprisingly liked it more, Mayuri is one of my only complaints, you can't really get the cute voice easily in English. It was still such a good dub that when I rewatched the movie (which is only subbed), the voices seemed a bit weird.
I'll have to rewatch it subbed again so I can get used to the original voices again for Steins;Gate 0.
I've tried and tried, but I just prefer the English VA's over the Japanese.
Too bad they couldn't make more after the 4th season.
Didn't watch more than a couple of episodes of this subbed, but the dubbed version was actually
Fuck off, there are no good english dubs. There are maybe a few acceptable ones but they're always inferior to the original. I watched both Baccano and CB in English first but when I rewatched it in Japanese it was way, way better.
Americans can't make good dubs because the anime voice actors are shit. Videogame VAs are way better, but the dubbing companies can't afford them for some reason.
>That implies that all Japanese productions are inherently good
It does not. It implies that the original voice track has inherent advantages due to being the original. Which is obvious to anyone who isnt't an idiot dubfag. As if subs aren't bad enough, you choose to watch shows the worst way possible.
Don't be a shit, I'm subs over dubs too.
I wouldn't even be qualified to sit in on this thread if I hadn't been forced to watch a few series with assholes who can't be bothered to read.
There are exceptions to every rule, don't be so close minded.
One of the absolute best. I love that given the chance to rewrite all the jokes, they opted for more insanity instead of reining everything in, like most would do for a Cartoon Network show.
