Uhm.. i wonder if the topic is available, as you see in the picture,
does it interest you to the dubbers of these anime's??


Edited:

when you hear anime's voice, does your mind interest who the dubber is?
the art?
production staff?
the year it was made?
the days it has done?
does it came from manga or a game?
who's the writer?
what kind of anime?


vice versa...
lets hear your opinions there..

i edited my post because as what ed said, voice are not only part of it,[my bad!!XDD] so, let's start...

There's a lot more to anime than the voice acting, you know. A large percent of anime goes into the designing phase, where character designers basically map out the entire feel of the anime. They decide what style to use, the amount of detail to invoke, and basically the entire feel of the anime. From their designs, producers can map out a budget for the studio based on the demands of the anime (and the number of sponsors willing to help in the production).

Give and take, some of the designs will be revamped or changed to suit the tastes of the producers and the sponsors paying for the project. Usually, I've seen very nice, detailed character designs in pre-production (or "Audition" stage, as it's called), but these designs eventually get diluted and simplified for the sake of a tight budget. This is usually the case for most anime.

Then it goes to the production studios where animators will work on the plans stated by the character designer. Depending on the number of episodes, and the style the studio employs, each division has it's own "head writer" that oversees the quality and keeps in check the work of his/her subordinates. This is why relatively long anime have noticeably different styles depending on the episode (usually 52 episode animes have this distinction).

After the animation is complete, it's off to sound and editing, where they put the voice acting and back ground music to fill in the gap. They make sure timing is correct, and also oversee the vocal prowess of the vocal actors (seiryuu) employed.

After all has been added up, they send it back to the animators for final review, and it may even pass through a review board before being released. This is usually done 2 weeks ahead of the said air date, which means an anime that is to be aired has to have at least 3 to 5 episodes completed before airing.


This is, of course, a simplified view of what happens behind the scenes. There's still quite a lot more (politics, even) that goes on... but let's just say we're happy they get the job done.

If I really like the voice actor, like Crispin Freeman, Vic Mignogna, or Brian Drummond, then yeah, I want as much behind the scenes stuff with them as possible, but I think it would be funny if they came out with an episode of two for series that is like "Behind the scenes" of the anime, as if they characters were all actually just actors on a set and then you get to see them going over lines and arguing and crap, it would be hilarious, like this:
