I am with some who are deffending dubbs here,

I watch anime in Japanese first and then I watch the dubbs with my hubby and he is very picky with the anime he watches. I know there are pretty bad dubbs out there BUT Durarara is dubbed very well. Of course the translation may not be word for word because they have to adjust it in the content of the conversation to match the lip flap.

I like the main american voice actors they picked for this anime and the new ones are actually pretty good.They are able to match the characters personality. I dont work for BanG Zoom but I know some of the actors in this project and I am an animation voice actor myself and a Durarara fan ever since it first came out of Japan..The ADR production did not skimp on the money because these actors are union actors.They are getting paid correctly for their talent. You have big names in this anime like JB,Yuri ,Crispin and BLum. These guys are really really talented VO.

I mean there were some part that could be improved in the first episode but its not too bad.


And of course if anyone gets annoyed of the beeps,cutting end song for commercial,censoring out scenes, thats Adult Swim for you.

Hey, I actually like the dub. I espically like how Crispin Freeman voiced Shizuo. He did it perfectly! But I still like the Japanese version more. (Daisuke Ono FTW!)

Some dubs are good, like Code Geass. Just not the ones like DRRR....

I hated the OP and ED anyways. The site I download from has dub/sub, so I tried both. Meh.

I am curious if the episodes they post later to their website have the same edits for time. The wouldn't need to, as they dont' have to fit in a time slot.

I'll join the minority in supporting the dub. It is flawed (why they're censoring curse words on a late night slot for cable is beyond me), but the voice actors are doing well collectively and it has hindered my enjoyment of DRRR so far while some really bad dubs have.

I gave up on Adult Swim long ago. I honestly think it is one of the worst channels on television. The people at Williams Street think they are the funniest on earth, and I would have to disagree with them wholeheartedly! They just come off as annoying with their pretentious bumps and their shows are right there along with reality television on the bottom shelf of basic cable. Unbearable garbage! I'd only watch it as a last resort, and luckily if I get the urge to try this show (which hasn't happened yet...) Good ol' CR is there for the time being.

Not that I would have a choice, mind you, since I don't subscribe to any TV service these days...
