Subs are better, but the dubs weren't terrible. Easily still watchable with dubs and might try it once through with them.

you people are very hard to please. the only part I didn't like is kayaba's voice just sounded flat. everything else was alright.

Kiritos."If i die in the game i die in real life!" line was proof alone that the dub is just horrible. So bland and cheesy with no real emotion.

You can't honestly tell me the "If I die in the game" line sounded okay to you? I cringed so hard... it's not like it would be impossible to deliver that line in english and not have it sound quite so forced and completely idiotic.

Hey I like dubs.. sometimes I like dubs better than the original (not often but it happens).. this.. was unwatchable. I don't have an unnatural obsession with SAO to care since at least I can just switch back to the original.. however for dubs.. it's almost as bad as Madoka's dub. Ugh.. again.. Aniplex. For as much hate as Funimation gets for using the same guys over and over.. I don't care because it's GOOD when they do it. Whoever directed these guys to perform should be fired. I doubt the actors are THAT bad.. but omg the direction they received was not helpful at all.. flat, no emotion and totally the wrong age for just about every voice I heard. Oooooh I'm so glad I can just switch back. I feel bad for those hoping this hits Toonami.. because ugh..

Agreed with everything said here. i love certain dubs sometimes more so then the sub. but this as you said is just completely unwatchable,

I think some of your reactions to this are a bit melodramatic for just a sample smattering of lines. I think there's a chance the the dub will over-all turn out to be ok.

Jeez you guys are harsh.

I actually liked it. No it wasn't the most amazing dub I've ever heard but it was far from "crap" as some have described it. The only part I had an issue with was the "If I die in the game, I die in real life" line.

Hey, so far all of my bluray/DVD collection but 2 things have dubs, I grew up on dubs as well. I don't hate dubs at all but I know bad when I hear it, me hating Asuna is just personal preference. However all the lines here were being delivered with so little impact it doesn't fit the over the top show such as SAO most of them sound like people are having a quiet discussion in a library when they should be screaming the damn lines, on that note I shudder to think what Kirito's english counterpart's scream will sound like.

Aside from Kayaba there's like 10 seconds of actual people talking in this preview.

I also think that it was bad. But I can't dismiss the shows entire dub as terrible just from a short teaser video on youtube.

Akihiko's commentary was bland. But other than that the english dub trailer was better than I expected. I'm a big fan of Cherami Leigh so this will be an exciting rewatch.

it really wasn't THAT bad.. sure, I've heard better. but I've also heard a lot worse. hell, I heard a lot worse IN THAT VIDEO. it's not anywhere near as horrible as you people are making it out to be. if you think it is, and you think those few lines of dialogue ruin the whole series, then.. you're either seriously overreacting, or have the anime on a pedestal far higher than it really deserves.

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.


So what your saying is Kirito sounded exactly like he should?
