I personally think its REALLY bad. The voices are off and theres almost no emotion when they speak Never have i heard scenes with such emotion and power turned into just words being said by a random person SMH. But maybe thats me over reacting lol.

What are your thoughts on it?

I didn't like Kyaba's opening. Kirito I think sounded ok but a couple lines were too cheesy and over acted. And whoever is doing Asuna may have been a poor casting choice, her voice doesn't feel like it matches the character.

However it was a very short preview, so I'm going to reserve judgement until I hear a bit more.

I actually like this one (and yes, I've seen the original). It doesn't surpass it or anything but I still like it for what it is. Although, Kirito's line at the end of the trailer was kinda cheesy sounding, but other than that, I liked most of the voices, specially Kayaba's.

And here I was, thinking that SAO was so awesome that no one could ever ruin it...

It's even worse than I expected it to be!! It sounds so unprofessional! I swear, these English dubbing companies have like FIVE voice actors! Is this a joke trailer? Was it released on the first?

If it's not a joke, I hope no one ruins it for themselves by watching THIS crap!

It was painful, although I was prepared at the beginning. A lot of dubs are bad, and to be honest I wasn't expecting anything different from SAO's dub.

Fairly flat, bland, and affectingly breathy. No worse than most modern English dubs.

I have already seen it I am not sure if waching it dubbed is something I will do.

The dub is t the worst but not the nicest my thoughts remain small.

Ouch, that was cringe inducing. It had that over-dramatic enunciating you see in dubs from the 80s and early 90s.

WHAT?! What is this?! Blood! I hope this is not CHRIS'S blood.

Oh come on Asuna sounds terrible I can't fap to that.

Oh and the "If I die in the game, I die in real life" line was laughable. I don't inherently hate dubs but it's shit like that line that give dubs a bad name.

I'm surprised because I'm currently playing through Tales of Graces F, and Bryce Pappenbrook (who is doing the Kirito dub) plays the lead Asbel Lhant (and that game has a great dub) and with Cherami Leigh, I thought it wouild be a solid dub. Maybe it's just the direction? Certainly the main evil bad guy was very bland and flat, totally miscast for such an important role.
