I actually really want a dub. Not for watching purposes, but merchandise purposes. If there was a dub, the DS games also might come out in English.


Yeah, I’m hopping that if it gets dubbed it’ll be easier to buy merchandise. Also I’d like to hear the songs in English.

4Kids have apparently shifted away from dubbing anime and they seemed to do the most editing and americanising so Shugo Chara is probably safe from that. The only problem that I can think of is the relationship between Ikuto and Amu if the dub airs on any kids channels. I don’t think some parents will be all too happy about that (especially the ear biting scene)

It would be great it could get a brilliant dub that has the appropriate voices and keeps the same heart warming feel as the original.
Also it would to be nice if the dub didn’t put in silly puns/jokes in every scene and talk in silent moments, I’ve seen some dubs (usually ones directed at kids) do that and sometimes it just ruins the moment. Another a problem is that sometimes they give villains stupid voices. But I think it was 4kids who mostly did this so yeah…

But I heard that long running shoujo anime don’t tend to be dubbed, also there’s the live action segments in party... On the other hand Shugo Chara seems very popular so who knows?


True but if funimation dubbed it I doubt that they would air it. It would most likely be those kind of dubs that are just released on DVDs and that's it. Also, for the merchandise to be released wouldn't an anime have to get like really popular? Either way, IF they dubbed Shugo Chara I bet that would make it more popular. Right now, I'm not sure shugo chara is THAT popular in American considering it is only in manga form.

Hmm...I never knew that BUTTT, Japan didn't release merchandise until Shugo Chara got so popular that almost EVERYONE knew about it. In america I doubt that we're close to that stage yet

True, true. I'm sure Shugo Chara can't become popular unless it comes to the US dubbed even though the manga is selling well. But with the economy now I doubt any company has the money to buy the rights to such a popular and long anime. So a few years wait? Oh well, us fans can always spread the word and bring more people into the fanbase.

I would really love it if they made a dub ... as long as it doesn't end up like Tokyo Mew Mew (they ruined that one)
Posted 3/2/10
they probably wont because it has gotten too long and its too much work to dub 100 episodes and etc etc
plus CR already licensed it and they might remove SC from this site if it gets a dub license
but i dont mind dubs...
translation: (i want the toys)

It would be interesting to see a dub but I don't think Shugo Chara will be dubbed.
But if it were to be dubbed I hope they don't change anything, as for the names, songs, etc. I wonder what Utau's songs would be in english though, it would sure be interesting.

Hm, I wouldn't think they would dub the 3rd season either.

Oh yeah, I found an english fandub to "Heartful Song" by Hoshina Utau/Nana Mizuki

www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu8fBHXidzg

The vocals don't really match to Utau's/Nana Mizuki's, but love the lyrics.

Actually, I would highly doubt that they would dub it.

It's for the sake of the *language* (Erh.. Pervert and Crossdresser and all that shiz)

It would be really cool if they did because: toys brought over to America, video games translated, official apparel, and other cool junk. BUT 4kids better not touch it. They SUCK big time. I used to watch sonic X until I realized that they change like half the episode and remove ALL romance (sonamy moments). I started watching the Japanese version which had more action, romance, and cussing. So yeah

oh god if 4kids dubs SC imma just die right there. LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO CARDCAPTOR SAKURA, THE MOST AWESOMEST ANIME OF ALL TIME! i hape funimation dubs it, they rock. well exept negi from negima!'s voice....i think 4kids has only done one thing right in the whoooooooooole world. and that was write the song Under The Mistletoe for pokemon. its sooooooooooo friggin kawaii, yeahhh ima pokeshipper (ashxmisty fan)

I hope there will be a dub for Shugo Chara, but I doubt there will... I really like dubs, they don't have to be bad (like Mew Mew Power), just look at Elfen Lied. (I think the dub is pretty good... If you have another opinion, I'll respect that. I heard many people who said that the dub was bad.) I'd like to here Amu's or Ikuto's voice in English (or even in German, THAT would be awesome. xD) There is an italian (I think) dub for Shugo Chara and it's actually pretty good... But I don't know who dubbed it...
Is 4Kids even allowed to do dubs? I heard something like they aren't anymore. (What would be great. xD) But if the dubbed it, that wouldn't mean it would be horrible. I have to admit I really like the Pokémon-Dub and their music is great, even in Mew Mew Power.
If SC gets dubbed, then I hope the names won't be changed. Maybe Ami -> Amy but the rest should stay the same.
I don't really think it'll get dubbed, though...

My little sister wants it dubbed because she doesn't like reading subtitles. I don't mind really, as long as the don't ruin it. As long as they just keep the names the same and characters have fairly similar voices, I'm okay with it.
