The Neon Genesis Evangelion dub that they had on Adult Swim sucked the most ass ever. It was even worse than the Naruto dub.

WTF!?!? your like the 3rd person who sayed that!
I didnt watch Eva on [adult swim] but I got the platnum edition and I loved the dub. Was it any difference between the 2?


Well, the original dub pretty much made Eva a "mainstream" show, they took out 90% of the cursing, sexual jokes, Japanese cultural references, religious dialogue, ruined a few plot twists with bad wording choices, nudity, Rei's true foreshadowing of events and the vocal cast was the most pretentious actors they could find.
They toned down their acting later, but it was completely offensive if you have ever heard the sub. Traumatized Japanese characters do not shout EVERY DAMN LINE! It is against the social context of the show and the original sub.

Basically they made it into One Piece or Naruto. They dub is a PC version of a disturbing philosophical show. It couldn't offend anyone in this altered form.
"To be great, is rarely to be loved...to be great,is to be hated."

I didn't know they made a Platinum dub, . If it is anything like the newer subs, it is even more PC.


That's why I watch the fansubbed version now. Even my subtitles are getting ass-raped these days.

I don't really get why people are so hellbent on hating dubs. I don't mind them at all, and in fact prefer them for some series. Subs are wonderful for the fact that you have access to much more anime than you do with dubs, and also because it's nice to hear their original voices.

However, there are two dubs that are the worst things I've ever heard. Up until recently, I swore up and down that the Gravitation dub was the scum of the earth and the spawn of Satan and that it should not be touched with a 10 ft. pole. Then came along the Prince of Tennis dub. Oh. My. God. If you had told me a year ago that there would be a dub worse than Gravitation's I would have thought you were insane. Yet it's true. There really is a dub worse than Gravitation's.

indeed
i really enjoyed watching pot but when i heard there were dubbed eps out and looked around for a dubbed ep and omg that was competely horrible you really can't make it any worse then that...or can you x_x
i'm surprised nobody said anything about GTO's dub it was tortue to even listen to anyone's voices typical dub bullshit

The only good thing about the PoT dub was that only a limited number of viewers could watch it. It might have changed now, but when it first started, only Americans were able to gain access to Toonami Jetstream. :/ However, starting December 23 it'll actually be aired on television.

Yeah, the Fruits Basket dub is definitely better. How could they give Yuki a girly voice? He already looks like a girl, giving him a girl's voice just completes the transformation... Yikes.

However I don't really like the Bleach dub. Ichigo and Rukia are okay, but I don't like Urahara's VA.

Oh, what about the Hellsing dub? I thought that was pretty good, and the English accents fit very nicely.

guess it all depends on how the voices sound
for some anime the people who they roles to just suck and you would rather hear the japanese version but sometimes its vice versa
example: This anime called The Slayers, Zelgadus (not sure how you spell his name) His english voice pissed me off so much and i would've prefered the japanese version
or it might be what they have the actors say so they fit in with the animation

Zelgadiss (played by Chrispn Freeman if memory serves) wasn't too terribly bad. Now, Xellos (David Moo) is still on my hitlist of voice actors that need to vanish.


Regardless, I actually preferred Goldenboy dubbed rather than raw. It's the only one I can think of but it's also one of a very, very few that I've ever seen dubbed as opposed to raw.
