I'm mostly okay with the Bleach dub. Orihime weirds me out no matter what the language. I like both.

Here's my opinion. I know it would mean the loss of access to new episodes here on crunchyroll, but I wouldn't mind too much if they brought Gintama to the US. But if they were to do that, they should keep it in Japanese.

Also, for all of you who are going "EW DUB ICKY ICKY BLARGH SUCKS", please stop. They aren't all terrible. I'm not saying we have perfect dubs here. I prefer Japanese myself. But really, it gets pretty damn annoying. Cut it out.


But yeah, Gin-san's perfect voice can not be replicated. End of story.

This anime would probably fail dubbed because of all those jokes only people from japan would understand, like the Ketsura Ana thing.


no it wouldn't
there are lots of jokes that are plenty funny even without the cultural references
since gintama is already 100 times funnier than the rest
minus 5% it's still 95% funnier, so it would be really succesful
don't underestimate sorachi

Dubs for the most part suck. But for an anime that emphasis on literary humor, humor that if not done correctly could ruin the entire episode. Gintama is not an easy series to sub due to its complexity, but getting someone to dub it and keep its humor is even more difficult. I be scared, very very scared.

I totally disagree with the dubbing of gintama I've been witness of shows being downgraded due to the dubs.the only animes that were good dubbed were the old school animes like DBZ,kenshin,Gundam and outlaw star etc.



I don't agree on dubs when the original version heavily relies on puns to pull off jokes. Different languages don't have the same homonyms, thus in translation jokes get killed off.

You can't compare DBZ, Kenshin, Gundam, and Outlaw Star to newer dubs because current dubbing can be really good, better than the original version ala FMA and Samurai Champloo,

chh.. as long as someone thats capable dubs gintama it'll be fine
just like s-CRY-ed, those dubs were awesome

oh yeah and to everyone that's like - Gintama has to many play on words and parodys

Hayate no Gotoku has them as well, like atleast 15 times more, but it was still licensed.

I've seen some parts of hayate no Gotoku and there weren't as many word plays. Is there a dubbed yet because I'd like to compare and contrast?

If they dub this anime, i'm officially going to go nuts. THEY CANNOT dub this anime. That's like the world's apocalypse right there, straight up.

I don't mind dubs as long as they are good. For example Hellsing. I reckon they did a damn good job with that series. So if they can reproduce that same quality or surpass it, I don't mind watching it in dub. Worst case scenario, we'll just have to find the subbed ones and watch it ^_^

I doubt the Japanese jokes would make sense if dubbed. They would probably have to make new jokes, which I doubt will actually be funny.
