Default Dubbing

Well I'm not much of a Anime watcher but here I go anyway.
Why does everyone get so pissed off about dubbing, well I can understand changing the character name to something really stupid or Unrelated to the character. But all my friends go "OMG in -Insert anime-, -Insert a character name- Actually sounds like a guy those BAKA (Yes Baka >.>) dubbers" So why does everyone get so mad? The story is usually basically the same. So thats pretty much my question, why does everyone hate dubbing so much? Actually I prefer dubs hehe

I'm used to hearing seiyuus instead of voice actors. :C It's a personal preference for me, I guess.

There's one thing I'd like to point out,
Why do some say subs make you miss the action?
I just glance at them, you should be able to read that fast at least. .-.

Unless you're dyslexic or something.

I just quickly read the subs when they pop up and then look at the pretty pictures.

I pretty want to hear the show/movie/etc. in its original voices/language, especially when it comes to anime. Plus, I can read most of the subtitles and watch whats going on screen because I've watched a lot of subbed anime. After watching said anime series in japanese, the dubbed afterwords tends to sound "Ewwww". thru I do have some tolerence for watching dubbed anime on TV, out of fact that I can't change the language to Japanese.

i will say it, not only the voices are bad but they edit it out pretty horribly, like when for example with 4kids entertainment, they edit out toyko mew mew and one piece badly by cutting out the partial nudity, changing the story of character, and changing character names and design.

bad dubbing can tottaly kill the mood of an anime.
especially if its a main character.
the japanese sure know how to find great voice actors that match a character.

This mainly applies to how 4Kids run the show.

Change in music:


Dumbing down eomtional scenes:


Changing music AND dumbing down emotional scenes:


Death coverups:


And the fact that Japanese VA > English VA.

Bad example but you know what I meant.

To be honest, the way Shadow sounded in Sonic X made me stop watching Sonic X for 2 years. I was traumatized.

well i like english dub too. I may watch a japanese original first but once the english come out i'm strictly for english dub. it may take a time to get used to the voice but in the end it end up fine. Like in Tactics, Sugino had very similar voices. And in English characters sound more boyish and I personally like that too...

example is PoT where Fuji's english voice is so AWESOME! I like the English voices. In Japanese the boys will sound like a woman or like an old man twice their age. In English they sound in between or good for them! Oh and in Japanese Mizuki's voice not creepy but in English he has a perfect villan voice! I liked it it was so creepy

"Chaos Control now"?

You need to watch the Shadow VA's comparison (That Leon posted earlier) to get this. 8D

If I watch a show in one language I find it hard to switch over because I've already associated the character to that voice. That's why DBZ and Inuyasha seemed so shitty in japanese clips to me back when I watched them. Goku and Inuyasha sounded radically different between the two languages lol.

As for voice actors, japan seems to have more dedication towards that sort of thing. Plus english voice actors have nothing to do with shitty translations that kill alot of dubs.

I don't bother with dubs anymore either since I usually watch what I want to subbed long before it gets dubbed.

I agree if you watch something you'll get more accustomed to hearing it in that language. Actually when you think about it some Characters Do match but more Americanized because of differences in speaking styles. And I don't blame them for cutting out partial nudity because c'mon it's nudity. Don't want kids to watch some lady's boob to come flinging out when watching some show. I dunno i was thinking about this O_o. And Shitty translations aren't always hmm "shitty" sometimes they have cultural jokes or whatever and theres really just no way to translate them for English speaking viewers so they just change the whole thing. I watched a 4kids interview it was quite interesting.

Lol, Amen thank whatever deity you people believe in. Mango got something right...

I like to know where the "now" comes into play in "translating" >___> It's almost like Shadow is talking to the Chaos Emerald and expecting it to do his bidding. And doing it in an overexaggerated DBZ otaku anime fan voice.
