Just check out the Imports section. I buy most of my imports from here. For older stuff I go to SundevilDVD. To say the prices are sheap is an understatement. I often pick up box sets from them for around 18 dollars.

Mmm, I think the dubs were alright. I mean, yeah, they weren't the best, but I have definately heard worse voice acting in other anime x_x

Lol, Keiichi's voice in some parts just made me laugh. I mean, I think the voice actor was trying to be serious, but...I dunno, I don't think he managed to be serious enough, which I guess made me laugh in return xD

Btw, does anybody know if any of the other dubbing companies in America are going to begin dubbing/selling more of When They Cry since Geneon quit? Seriously, even though the dubs aren't that good, I'd still like to have a dubbed version on hand because I know people who normally won't watch anime unless they have dubs, and I've been trying to show this anime to a lot of my friends and family like that :x

I really don't like the dub... in my opinion all the voices were way to high pitched....

Usually, if there's a good dub, I would prefer it over the subs (There's been only few series so far. Not to easy to find good dubs.)

But Higurashi dub wasn't so great. It was somewhat decent at least, but I'd rather watch the subs over this dub anyday.

Out of what I've seen, Rena, Mion, were fine. Keiichi was decent, but not perfect. However, Satoko and Rika were pretty bad. Same goes for Oiishi. These threes voices didn't feel right, etc.

Pros-
- Not too bad. I've seen far worse
- Mion sounds just about right, if it wasn't for one small thing

Cons-
- Can't pronounce the names correctly, and sounds quite off.
- Satoko, Rika, and Oiishi's voices don't sound like them
- Mion, especially, cannot seem to pronounce other names right
- Obviously, not as good as the sub.

There you have it.
