Can dubs be OK if the voices fit the characters more than the Japanese voices do? Serious question.

Dubs are only okay if you check them.

The voices fitting isn't the problem with dubs, it's the butchering of regular speech patterns to match up with the original's mouth flaps.

Why the fuck do you care what the sperglords on here think? Anyway you basically just asked "is a dub okay if it is better than the original?" What the fuck are you retarded? If it's better than guess what? That means it's better dumbass. You piss me off so much.

Dub voices fitting characters more than Japanese voices might not make it better than the original, in some cases. He's asking if it still works that way. Learn to fucking read questions before you act like an ass.

Would you watch Hercules if Hades was dubbed in Greek? I mean, Greek would fit him more considering he's a Greek deity.

It's usually a question of acting talent, like with any VA role.

Cowboy Bebop and Magic User's Club have clearly better voice acting, the former because the dub had exceptional casting, the latter because the original Japanese had shit casting.

Meh, Cowboy Bebop's dub was only acceptable because of Spike's VA, I really didn't care for anyone else.

Space Dandy's dub, however, is shit, and Dandy's VA turned a suave character into a fucking dudebro.

There are rare cases where the dub is better than the original Jap audio. DBZ, Figure 17, Summer Wars, Cowboy Bebop, Just to name a select few.

James Lopez

I am never going to understand why people like Bebop's dub so much. Spike sounds like a standard space-hardass with none of the original's whimsy, despite the fact that treating life as a dream is central to his character and story.

I think it's mostly the smooth quality to his voice that people enjoy. Sort of like everything he says is a line of beat poetry.

Black Lagoon's dub fits better cause the characters are supposed to be speaking english.

i don't see why you need to ask this question
there are a sizeable amount of dubs which are as good as or better than the original Japanese. most are of course shit, but a good few dozen or so are alright
the tone of the voices in evas dub makes everything the characters say seem much more surreal and off, which makes the effect of everything being weird and out of place much greater. i was pretty disappointed in the original japanese to be honest

I don't know if I have a duty to witness it on the off chance it will be good, or if I should pretend it doesn't exist to make sure she remains unsullied.

In theory it's possible, but I would assume it's harder to do since the dub cast had no involvement with the original production staff and have a lot of handicaps put on them that the original VAs didn't have to deal with (it's one thing to translate dialogue, speaking it out loud and making it sound natural in another language is difficult, not even to get into weird cultural stuff that is never going to sound natural no matter how you try to do it unless you just straight-up 4kids it out of the script)

Henry Anderson
Henry Anderson

Also didn't mention it at first because I'm not sure if it's still an issue in modern dubs, but if you have to match your words to the lip movements in another language so that you don't have to redo the lip syncing, then you don't really have a shot in hell of making it sound completely natural.

Your question isn't serious, but have a serious answer anyways.
Yes.
Porco Rosso's French voice (by Jean Motherfucking Reno, no less) was retconed by the author as THE original voice of the character.
SInce your question was if something CAN happen, not if something happens often, a single positive example is enough to prove the afirmation.
Can we move on?

Anything westaboo is superior dubbed: Lupin, Black Lagoon, Hellsing, Bacanno, Berserk, etc
Also, sometimes dub writers actually improve the dialogue over the subs, like Yu Yu Hakusho or Steins; Gate
I like watching old OVA dubs purely for the curiosity factor, sometimes good VAs are found in shit shows and its nice not hearing the same people
I generally have the subs turned on when I watch dub anyway so I dont get fucked over by any censorship or stupid choices in the English dialogue like when they simplify technobabble in sci fi shows
However some stuff like JoJo will NEVER work dubbed.
