They really translated everything...from the opening song...to the dialogues...down to the ending theme song...

But everything looks - sounds great rather...

english is good 'coz at least i get to see more clearly their facial expressions and stuff like that unlike when i was still reading subs...i had to concentrate sometimes on reading to understand what they're saying...

But I still highly prefer their original voices...

nonetheless, i still like them both...i was amused when i was watching the japanese version of ouran and i find it still amusing when i watched the english dubbed version...hehehe^^

I like the Japanese way better, Im sorry but Vic CAN'T do Tamaki, it was sad! (personal oppinion) He should stick to Edward Elric and Dark. The twins Scared me, hunny was good, Kyoya just got scarier, mori.. Didn't hear, Haruhi worked yet didn't Japanese all The way!!!!!! plus English pronouce the names wierd... So sad. *sigh*
Oh well' besides all that I Love Ouran still... Just in japanese!

i too like ouran in japanese...i can feel their real emotions while the voice actors portray their corresponding characters...at first, when hearing tamaki, kyouya and haruhi's voices (in english), i was taken aback...i mean, i wasn't expecting for their voices to be like that...but it was okay nonetheless...

the twins' part was very amusing when they both speak together...i've read from funimation that it was a challenge in dubbing for the twins' role because they have to synchronize the parts that they speak together...although they recorded their parts in different times but one actor still use the other voice actor's dubbing as a basis on the timing, pitch, etc. for the recording...i admit they're good but they're not as good as the original voice actors...

hunny was good and still maintained that cute character of his...even the voice actor was still a girl, like in the original...

mori's role is i think the simplest part to dub...you hear only a few lines from mori and that makes the dubber's role less challenging..

but the really sad part (in my opinion) was the opening and ending theme songs being sung in english...the opening was okay but the ending was...never mind...

however i appreciate your opinion...and i still agree with you in saying that the original version of ouran is still the best...but i still think that funimation did good in their english version of ouran...but really not their best...we may say that they might still make it better...but nothing really beats the original...right? hehehehe^^

whaaaaa... i already saw it...the english dub... i was really disappointed when i heard haruhi and tamaki's voices...but i was amazed by the twins voices...the dubbers really did a good job dubbing the hitachiin twins...it was really really good..hunny-senpai's voice was nice too...^^ but i prefer the japanese version MORE!!!i agree when you said that you can feel the real emotions of the characters in jap version...^^...japanese seiyuus are the best dubbers ever...^^...
