god, i couldn't deal with another 4 kids, though i have to say the worst thing wasn't the horrible dubbing, but the merciless the cuts. I mean in some anime they changed scenes and even characters.

i haven't watched any viz dubs so i can't really comment on them. though i did watch like the 1st 10 eps of naruto dubbed (was that by viz) until i realised i could watch the subs online. the cuts in that were really bad too. most of the episodes were made up of flashbacks of the previous episode. and the english orichimaru is rubbish, especially compared to the awesome japanese one. his voice is the shizz!

not all dubs are bad, i'd have to say adv know what they're doing ( minus azumanga) but i mean look at excel saga, dubbing perfection (except for that ep they go to america, much funnier in japanese ) and bebop was done superbly well well, along with evangelion, nadesico, raxephon (escaflawne only gets points for dilandau's voice actor) etc


Evangelion a good dub?
I never thought I'd see someone type that...

Hello CR forums.
EVANGELIUM A GOOD-DUB? It must be diff perspectives. Bebop was good and escaflowne was 1/2 and 1/2

Okay , I`m back .
Viz did a decent job . They kept the rules the way it was [ they didn`t edit ] .
You can still bear watching it .
The biggest problem is that their voices , especially Light`s is too deep .
Light sort of doesn`t sound like a 17 year old .
Other than that , it was good .

4kids` dubs go too far . They change the name of the characters and title .
Tokyo Mew Mew for example , changed to Mew Mew Power .
If 4kids dubbed Death Note , it wouldn`t be called Death Note anymore .
Probably Life Note . >.<

Anyway , let`s be grateful and happy that 4kids didn`t try to dub Death Note .
If they did , Obata-san and Shounen Jump will probably sue 4kids . >.<

Light is around 17 years old.
A voice actor's job isn't to sound like the original voice; that only hinders his/her acting abilities.
It wasn't that his voice was too deep, it's that he doesn't have that haughty tone like the original had.

I have to admit that the acting was good. The voices didn't fit the characters, but at least Viz hired decent actors.

I started off watching Naruto dubbed, at first Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura etc. their voices were okay, but after I heard to voices of the other characters after episode 20...Bleach, hm, the mains voices are okay, Ishida exceptional, I hate his voice. But the 13 Division shinigami and so on, I'm guessing they pratically chose them randomly. Death Note...don't have much to say about that, I watched 1 episode for about 3 minutes. Heard Ryuk and Light's voice...I don't even want to hear L's dubbed voice. I'll never watch it again. 3 minutes killed me, what would 2 episodes do?

I have no real problem with the Death Note dub. BUT if they don't make Near sound close to his age like they did with Hitsugaya from Bleach (the guy with the white hair), I'm really going to stop watching it. Near was my favorite character and I hope he sounds good.

Also, LUCKY STAR DUBBED, IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE, SOME AMERICANS WHO HAVEN'T SEEN THE SERIES WOULDN'T REALLY GET THE JOKES.

I admit that the dubbing version ruins the anime. Sometimes their good, I thought FMA was good in dubbed and I saw the subbed before I actually seen the dubbed one. Death Note, Naruto, and Bleach dub...they ruined it for me.
