I really like this show a lot. Is there something strange about that?
I like to think not, but I'm sure someone might find it odd.

This show has a terrible dub, mostly because it manages to make most of the jokes in the show completely unfunny. Not of course, that I can really blame them too much, since many of my favorite jokes rely on Ana's inability to speak english (despite the fact that she is from England), something which would be almost impossible to convey in an English-language dub.

How did they convey that with Ana anyways? That would be a difficult thing to dub...

I think one of the things that made this series so entertaining was all the quality voice acting in the japanese version. It really helped define and express the charcacters, and I don't think most american voice actors are expressive enough to pull it off. Especially since it's probably going to be a bunch of women in their 30s straining to sound cute in a sound booth.

I really enjoyed the show when I saw it, and really should pick it up on DVD (maybe when they release it as a boxset). Hmmm if I was looking for pedo anime porn, I'd go for the real stuff. This is just cute light hearted fun (and there is nothing wrong with that).

They didn't really convey it well at all. For the most part, the things that are supposed to be in English, as opposed to Japanese, are completely indistinguishable from the rest of the dialogue. So, Ana's response of " Konnichiwa" to Miu's "Good Morning" is reduced to her simply saying "Good Afternoon", completely losing the humor. The same goes with Ana's repeated mistake in saying "two sen yen" instead of "two thousand yen"; in the dub, she just says "two tousand yen", making the other character's pained reactions confusing. Every once in a while, Ana's voice actress attempts to speak in broken English for her lines, but you can really hardly tell.
My little sister even thought it was funnier in the original Japanese.

I never did like the premise of "Cute girls doing cute things". Sounds gay.

Some of us are more secure with our sexuality. Some of us have better adjectives in our vocabulary than "gay".

So.... men enjoying cute girls is.... gay?

I can understand the whole the whole pedo connection here but.... gay?

Now, I'm very politically incorrect and have elevated gay bashing to an art form, but this is just an odd way to put it.

Sure Jay, sure. We're not going to ask how much of your lolicon collection is from ichigo mashamiro
