Ive been into anime for a long time now since the early mids 90's pokemon, dbz and yu yu hakusho.etc.
and of course i watched them in Eng Dub.. recently i started watching some yu yu hakusho on youtube and i loved it, so i scrolled down to the comments and what i see.. ahh omg my ears are bleeding and 8 people liked this comment and this really annoyed me. because yu yu was my childhood.. dont get me wrong im not a tard but why does Everyone has this deep hatred for Dubs i personally enjoy some I.E FMA, code geass, claymore are great dubs and some do suck like Naruto, etc. what im trying to say is why do dub haters go out of the way to make themself look like immature weeabos ?

No more than many other Youtube commenters do, I think.

It's more the person than the position.

There's a pretty lengthy thread on this that hasn't been posted on since yesterday, so it slipped to the second page:

If its an older one that I first got to know in english, like DBZ than I tend to prefer the english version. Newer anime however I cant stand to watch in english. Its just my preference but the dubbed versions tend to be more distracting and for some reason they rarely find a voice actor that sounds like the original.

Well I'm in the opinion that eng voice actors are their to give their own perspective of how a voice should sound trying to emulate a jap voice to eng is impossible

^ This. Dub haters annoy me to death. There are dubs I don't like, but come on. Besides, I don't think you can judge the Japanese acting unless you are fluent in it. They could be in there hamming it up and nobody over here would be able to tell because they aren't familiar with the language outside of anime.

I've had my fair share of run-ins with dub haters, they think you're not a real fan when you don't like anime in subbed.

I get what your saying, but the problem I have is that it may be pushed overboard. in Bleach for example I find that Ichigo's english voice is way off what should match the character. To me the english voice sounds like a thirty year old man, not a highschool student. Another reason why I typically don't care much for the english version is because in both japanese and english they often make their voices much higher, especially for female characters. I just find it harder to listen to in english. I I don't hate dub, I just feel like when a show is dubbed they should do their best at trying to match it to the original version. By this I mean, if I watch it in Japanese then the next episode in english, I shouldn't have a hard time figuring out who's who.

If the voice works it works. But 9 times out it 10 it doesn't thus garnishing so much hate.

How many animes actually have successful dubs >.>

Think of it this way: trying to emulate another's work is not what they want to do with voice acting. Initially, perhaps, but as a voice actor you (should) want to interpret the character on how you feel you should voice them (of course, within set limits to that character). Copying someone else really isn't that good of a choice.

For comparison, take Daru from Steins;Gate. The English voice actor and the Japanese voice actor both portray the character in their own ways whilst also being true to that character's personality and feel.
