ITT: perfectly accaptable dubs.
Acceptable doesn't mean good.
can we make this an fmp thread instead
only show in history with a better dub than the original voice cast
and thats only because it completely changed the original show
First and only waifu
Ultimate gf material with none of the japanese cultural hangups
Was FMP the most mediocre anime ever made?
YOU WANNA BE AN AIR FORCE RANGER
YOU WANNA LIVE A LIFE OF DANGER
YOU DON'T WANNA BE RAPED BY STRANGERS
If there is one, I haven't seen it.
Are you the most mediocre human being on Earth?
misses trips by one
i'm 12 and what is this
show intro literally admits they're making up the script as they go
Not to mention all the waifus this show had
You better be a cute jap boy for me to let go of that spelling error, user.
That show was great, each episode I was looking forward to the special finisher by the MC. And also their interaction with black bird (typical piccolo syndrome)
Yes, yes I am.
If it counts for anything dragon ball got decent voice acting. Expecially the guy who voices Goku.
I just don't understand why people watch dubs
even if the dub is acceptable, it's not gonna be better than the original. are there people who really hate subtitles THAT MUCH?
I can only think of an extremely small number of shows that are improved by a dub. cowboy bebop, space dandy, that's pretty much it. a lot of times the dub doesn't even make sense tonally. like samurai champloo. the dub is fine, but why would you want a bunch of samurai to be speaking english?
Sword Art Online
Why would you want any story not explicitly set in Japan to have characters speaking Japanese?
Perfectly acceptable dubs.
because it's how the creator intended it to be
for the cowboy bebop dub, watanabe basically said "yeah this is way better than the japanese version"
Essentially none, aside from dubs which intentionally diverge from the source material like
Of course you`ll have dubs that are better or worse, but none of them are acceptable.
Cowboy Bebop's dub will always be the GOAT.
Watanabe never said that, it's a meme along with the idea that the dub is superior
Like the meme that seiyuu aren't almost all shitty hams?
but the dub is superior
it isnt, thats your nostalgiafag promoted groupthink talking
i might use this in the future
your argument was that subs are better because the creator intended it to be in whichever language. Watanabe never said it was better than the Japanese version. why is it better then
The ONLY acceptable dubs in this thread
this man post
no mention of Golden Boy
smfh head, Sup Forums
why is it better then
the voices sound better
I like it better
shouldve just said so, user
because it's how the creator intended it to be
Do mangakas have any influence in the casting of voices or that is entirely up to the animation company?
didn't they give Andre a fucking Gollum voice?
Really depends on how much the mangaka cares about the animation (ie. how much free time they can squeeze from their work on manga). If they have the dedication, they can basically nitpick about anything and make production do as they want because the position of original creator (gensakusha) is really strong in Japan. That being said, if the communication between author, magazine editors and anime staff is really bad, then something like Shirokuma Cafe can happen.
Lots mangaka both suggest people for roles and come to listen to the auditions. Sorachi Hideaki apparently said that he picked Sugita for Gintoki from the audition tapes because he was the only one who actually horsed around.
Lot of them also come to the anime recordings every week just to hear their characters coming to life. Shaft might the most friendly studio for creators because several of them (eg. Aoki Ume, Kobayashi Jin, Nakamura Hikaru) have come to the shows' web radios and told how much direct input Shinbo asked from them.
Golden Boy best dub ever
I liked K-On!'s dub.
But the original is still better.
Cromartie high is a prime example of Dub > sub
Please tell me this isn't what I think it is
See some user shilling the dub
Think he's bullshitting
Check it out
They nailed Hotaru perfectly
I might have more fun watching the English dub than the Japanese one, not to say it's good/great.
Elfen Lied is shit, the anime is atrocious, but Bandou made the manga great
and I'd be lying if I said his dub voice wasn't fucking based
I guess that counts as an acceptable dub since the only good character has the only good voice.
I CAME A LONG WAY TO THIS SHITHOLE TOWN FOR ONE REASON, I'M HERE TO PUT A BULLET IN THAT FUCKING BITCH! AND IF YOU AIN'T STRAIGHT WITH ME I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU TOO
I'll admit he got a bit edgier but he's bruiser as fuck.
Also he ad-libbed the "I killed women and children" line to make him sound less sympathetic.
Still the VA is awesome.
If you watched desert punk or black lagoon subbed your truly a dumb ass who missed out.
perfectly accaptable trips
Perfectly acceptable localization

I like how the women beating asshole was the best character in that manga. He should had been the MC.
how fucking new can you possibly be
the only acceptable dubs are these
oh come on!
The Persona game dubs were pretty good except for adding senpai. Those weren't bound to mouth movements like anime dubs are though.
People that speak both languages fluently tend to agree that dub and sub voice acting is equally hammy with the occasional standout performance on both sides.
If you want to listen to a language you don't understand and pretend it's well-acted go right ahead, but don't piss on my leg and say it's raining.
Subs capture Holo's playful side better and are perhaps more appropriate to the body she's inhabiting in human form. Dubs capture her mature and haughty side better.
When will this meme end?
Right around the time you kill yourself.
Honestly, it just comes down to preference. I tend to watch dubs if they are available because I like to focus my eyes on the animation and my ears on the words, as it were. Granted, in my opinion there are some shows where the original Japanese fits better (for example, Kill la Kill), but really I'd say most dubs post-DBZ are actually quite good (Durarara and Sword Art Online come to mind as specific examples).
You first, shit taste-kun.
In regards to "how the creator intended it to be," there are arguments for both subs and dubs. In Japan, the show is in Japanese, and therefore that is how it was "intended to be" and so subs are the way to go. But if you think about the fact that the Japanese are not reading subs, but simply listening, then maybe that's the pure way to do it so you don't read but instead listen as they would in Japan.
But user, I'm already dead.
is there even a FotNS Eng dub?
If so should we make one?
japanese voice acting has too much exaggeration and gasping at the end of sentences
My first anime, that or Speed Racer
So were they robot animals, cybernetically enhanced animals, or animals wearing robot suits/armor?
Good dub, Paul Lyned-esque fox
watching blue exorcist
I will admit, I love the FLCL voices. Haruhi can be a hit and miss.
I'd say the ones who don't know shit about foreign languages are the ones who keep insisting that fluent speakers say Japanese is the same shit. The ones who watch things other than anime (like idolshit or variety shows) can actually tell how "bad" regular elevens are when it comes to using their voice, which is funny because when people like that do anime roles, fags on Sup Forums are praising them like it's the second coming of Christ (eg. Nazo no Kanojo X's heroine) even though they sound generic as fuck to any experienced listener.
Anyone who has grown-up in a culture that doesn't fub the fuck out of things should be able to tell what kind of emotions people are trying to convey even they don't speak the same language unless they are literally autistic. And if not by then, watching few years of anime should get you used to the language unless you're a multitasker or some another type of extreme faggot.
Anglos don't know how bad english dubs sound to people without anglo bias.
The hamming is sort of an accepted part of Japanese voice acting, like how stage dialect sounds normal when stage actors use it. Dubs don't really have an equivalent which is why they sound unnatural most of the time.
liking dubs unironically
What happened to this place? Dubs always are and always will be inferior.
unless you're a multitasker
I just play anime in the background to add to my MAL list.
the position of original creator (gensakusha) is really strong in Japan
Tell that to Tomino.
Japan is like anywhere, they pay lip service to things a lot but they'll throw it under the bus the second it gets inconvenient to actually follow through.
"how the creator intended it to be," there are arguments for both subs and dubs.
It's also an irrelevent arguement.
dub > sub
anybody who says FLCL is either:
a. in their 20's and watched it on Adult Swim when they were kids
b. stupid like a small child
Oh, Sup Forums.... How far you've fallen. Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt's dub is downright better than the original 99% of the time. Except for R-R-RUUUUR-R-RUU. That's it.
None, fuck off.
make sure its uncut and its good. do not believe the lies of the those ocean dub and first funimation dub faggots
Oh, finally... I stand corrected.
I'm gonna eat that ghost's honey-glazed nutsack!
Proton pack a shit!
*ZAP* Ohhh I just creamed so fuckin' hard...
There's tons of acceptable dubs. Anybody who denies there being acceptable dubs is just a stupid weeb faggot that belongs in /jp/ or Gaia.
Hell, even if the OP said: "ITT: Good dubs" then there would still be tons of options. The only way people could reasonably say "there are none" is if OP said "dubs that are better than the original". And even then it's still completely wrong, because there are a few dubs objectively better than the original.
Shit, I remember Sup Forums used to hate weebs.
None. You need to fuck off back to /r/anime.
