I dunno...I'll rate it 7/10. Sure Kida's seiyuu sounds like the 25-year old man he probably is, and didn't have that sweet/sexy voice quality of Mamoru Miyano, and mispronounced nearly everything in Japanese he said, but the rest of the cast was well-suited. Simon's accent was great, and Izaya's voice was hot, from the 5 seconds i heard him speak. [walker's voice kinda sucked, but other than that...]

I don't mind the dub YET.
I say yet because I've only seen the first episode in dub, based on that first episode you can probably only tell if you like one or two of the voices for characters. Unless you own the DVD then I'd say it's too early to pass judgment on the dub for adult swim watchers.
Also the opening and endings being cut is sort of understandable, it's not like they don't do that for other anime.

For those complaining about the dub, there's the DVD version dub that probably is better. akutsu, by saying dubs suck, you are also cursing the Japanese version because all anime is dubbed since dub has a definition of adding sound to a picture.

I like the dub and this is adult swim we are talking about so of course they are gonna chop up the opening and ending cuz its there thing I guess and I haven't seen the sub version but I still thing the english version is good there were a few of voice actors i recognized like Liam O'brien, Johnny Bosch, I think Yuri Lowenthal and Crispen Freeman was in it too but overall it was good i found it funny when they had some bleep in it lol

I never really liked Durarara in the first place, so I guess it's even worse?

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.


The point isn't that "The English dubs are alright/bad/good." It's that "The japanese dubs were better." I hold by the view that english duns aren't bad, but generally, the Japanese is better, so I watch that.

Although I can agree with finding humour in their voice acting flaws, but if I had to watch/hear it every week (which I wouldn't), then it would start to piss me off. A lot.

I'm not a dub hater by any means, usually like them even, but the Durarara dub was pretty cringe worthy. There was so much about it that was off. The pronunciation was horrible, the voices really didn't seem to fit, the audio sucked. Just not good.

Makes me sad, really. Was hoping the dub would give me incentive to buy the overpriced DVDs. It did the opposite.

I have never seen the subbed version, and when I first saw this version, I felt so lost. I'm gonna give it a chance, hoping it redeems itself.

Although I haven't watched this on Adult Swim (seeing as I live in the UK) - I do own the Aniplex dvds and the dub isn't too bad - it's got some of the best dub actors/actress in the current market. I just hope it can win over fans where other animes haven't on Adult Swim
