so I've been hearing alot of people saying that funimation hates sgt frog (keroro gunso in japanese) due to jokes that the narrator makes during periods of silence (like mocking the fact that the show became so serious during certain episodes). honestly i think people are reading too much into it but what do other people think?

never seen the series dub or sub so I have no clue I do like the manga though

i love the sgt frog dub! i think the narrator is funny when he does that! whoever said funimation hates sgt frog needs to get a sense of humor! but while i'm here, i have a question, does anyone know if funimation will dub the rest of sgt frog? or are they stopping at episode 51?

yeah one of the reasons i brought this up is because people think that if funi hates the series they prolly won't continue it regardless, but again that just seems crazy.

i haven't heard any official news but supposedly members of the cast have said they are recording episodes past 51 but I've yet to see anything that says we are getting more for sure.

The voice actors are horrible. They sound phony as can be. Natsumi is most annoying. She delivers all of her lines in that monotonous singsong way. The Japanese actress is so much better. I love when she has pent up anger blowing out her ears:"Gnnnniii gnnnii gnnnii...." cause she's about to explode. And OMG, when she's about to be tyrannic, she sounds so evil.

And don't get me started at how badly they messed up Tamama. Funimation should rebrand themselves PHONYmation.

yeah they licensed 26 more episodes. first 13 was released on the 26th and the next one comes out in a few weeks. hopefully funi isn't just teasing us and they actually plan to do more.

I like the narrator he's silly ._. The rest of the cast sounds so stereotypical, but it's watchable.

I really appreciate the dub because of the way they handled all the pop culture jokes. I started out watching the sub so I know that the original series in Japanese is filled with TONS of Japanese pop culture references that I had to keep pausing the video to read all the explanation for in the subtitles. In the dub they took a lot of the references and used american ones. On one level I guess that could be annoying to some people but since they were actually FUNNY (I think it was in the third or fourth ep Natsumi makes a reference to the Dark Night and Christian Bale) I liked it. I think anyone who is annoyed with the narrator is reading into it too much since those jokes about the series seem to be made in english and in the original japanese.
