I don't think a dub would be that bad as long as it's not done by 4kids.


I doubt 4Kids would dub a crazy comedy about a samurai. I hope Funimation gets it. But I really want Katekyo Hitman Reborn first

I totally disagree with the dubbing of gintama I've been whitness 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.

LOL They shouldn't dub comedy anime AT ALL, ESPECIALLY Gintama (my fav. series EVER). They did the same thing with Ninja Nonsense and had to change a lot of the jokes around. The translation was really different -_-+
Obviously, in any comedy anime, the original jokes can only be understood by Japanese audiences or people that understand the language and its culture.

So dubbing Gintama is definitely a bad idea. But if the DVD has dual audio then I don't care as long as I can have access to the original Japanese (I think the jokes in Japanese are more amusing anyway LOL lol. Thanks to Gintama, I've learned a few slang words in Japanese xD)

In any case, I prefer the original Japanese audio than in English for any anime. I usually only like English dubs if they're done by Funimation (except for Ouran. I HATE Funimation sometimes because in some anime, they dub the opening and ending songs. I mean seriously, you already dubbed an entire anime. That's 95+% of the series. Have some fucking respect for the artist and leave the songs alone dammit! -_-+)
ADV Films sucks, but Viz does an okay job on certain ones (most of their dubs IN MY PERSONAL OPINION are average at best, with the exception of Bleach and Death Note [except for L's voice])

Sorry for my ranting, BUT NO GINTAMA DUB. IF YOU DO IT, GIVE ME LE JAPANESE AUDIO YOU SWINE!

Okay, I haven't really posted in this forum before, but I feel that I need to make a statement on this. There have been SEVERAL comedy anime that have been dubbed that haven't been

ruined
. To make a short list, Cromartie High School, Shin-chan, Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya....and how can I forget, one of the best series ever, FOOLY COOLY! Now, if they were to dub it, they could do it a couple of ways. One, they just keep a direct translation, and they decided to make an author's note type thing on the dvd, like they did with Cromartie. Two, they COMPLETELY redo the script, like Funi did with Shin-chan, OR, they just change a few references, but keep the overall feel the same, i.e. FLCL. Either way, there's no reason for them NOT to dub it....plus, I wanna own them on dvd LEGALLY. T_T

Actually I really want Gintama to get licensed now ^^ My opinion has totally changed :] And I think that if funimation got a hold of it they'd do a good job. Besides, this show has over a 150 episodes now; they can't ignore it forever.

I also want my own physical DVD

they should not dub gintama. i mean i do want it to be licensed so i can buy the dvds but they cant dub it. most of my friends say they should but they havent even watched as many gintama episode as i had to fully grasp the understanding that the japenese voice actors rock!!! and the english wouldnt be able to compare to them.

I generally don't like dubs. <.<
It doesn't matter if they dub something japanese, chinese ... russian, english? Whatever.
The point is that the voice actors don't usually even sound like what they should, and the quality is really low.

I'd actually hope they would dub it, really. It would mean the show reaching a wider audience and a probable dual-language DVD release.

I don't have to like the dub, but I like what it would bring about.

I like funimation dubs...

However I don't know how you would dub gin... Plus being 150 episodes in I couldn't adapt or accept new voices.

If they did the dubs acurately according to the original script, the viewers might not still understand the jokes. Since the jokes have a lot of cultural references, and references to other anime, and video games.
And what if the english voice actors mess up the voice, and give the audience a different view of the character's personality?
They should just liscense it, and only release DVDs with subs.

If they don't get it just right it will be a epic fail.
On the other hand if they do it right it might be nice.
Not like it would hurt if they do it right and don't screw up the voices or the translations.

If you don't like it don't buy it, don't watch it, don't care.

That's what I'm doing ....XD

As long as it isn't 4Kids who dubs it...but they probably won't since Gintama contains a lot of "mature content". XD;;

I wouldn't mind a dub. Sometimes I don't like reading subtitles...But the reason they haven't had one is because of all the references so I don't think it can happen.
