Start with the chopping up of the opening and ending which are actually necessary because the cast of characters is so huge... continue with one of the worst dubs I have heard since the Gravitation dub... top it off with the bleeping of cursing for reasons that made no sense at all... and this was just an unbearable experience!

I feel like I have to re-watch the whole series in Japanese just to rinse away the horrible experience of seeing it on [adult swim]...

Thank god it's still free here!

I'm fine with it, I can just watch the ed and op online. I'm just glad to see in on my 1080p big screen, and I like DRRR a lot. Plus, unlike a lot of anime fans, I don't have a deep, dying rage against dubs, and I can actually stand them sometimes.

I don't hate dubs... they can be well done or done badly... this was bad... the English voice actors read the proper nouns like it was the first time they had seen a Japanese word...

Really was that bad?

Now I'm interested just to see if it's really that butchered

Yeah I'll actually agree with that, but still, I'm not one who will hate just for something so minor. I can find humor in such flaws. Plus, if you can get past the bad pronunciation, the voices fit the characters' personalities, and Simon's accent was good.

I saw the trailer when the anime first came out, I was not interested in it whatsoever, but now I'm kinda interested in watching it in English, which I did and it was decent, the anime was pretty sick too.

Having never seen the series before I remain neutral about the dub. As far as edits go this is typical for Adult Swim from what I've seen in the past. True I too hate the fact that opening and closings are cut up so they can bombard us with more stupid commercials but that's Adult Swim for ya.

Never seeing the series until now, I didn't mind the voices. In fact, I thought they were pretty decent.

haha, I'm actually quite excited for it...Maybe now I will be able to comprehend the vast amount of information that I was unable to cope with. Just like To Aru No Majutsu No Index...Part of the reason why I drop anime is because there's just too much information that my brain just goes X_X lol.

Nowhere near the best dub, but nowhere near the worst. It didn't catch the charm of the original voice cast, but I'll still watch it in hopes that a ratings success may convince the powers that be to make a second season or at the very least get the light novels published in English. I wanna see Kuronuma dammnit!

Dubs. You can't live with 'em and you can't live without 'em.
