I find it hilarious that half the responses so far aren't answering the actual question but are in fact just saying all dubs ruin anime to which I point you to Gigguk's rant on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IyItqjCAag

To the actual question I think the dub's been rather good at the moment and before the dub haters rage at me I did watch the whole series here on Crunchyroll first. I quite like a lot of the voices with Rider being a personal favourite also on a quick side note the dub makes the series a lot easier to watch, mainly the first episode info dump, since it's far easier to hear this stuff explained in english than it is to read subtitles. But so far I've found nothing wrong with the dub besides Gilgamesh who sounds a bit off to me but no big deal.

Lastly just to annoy the living hell outta dub haters: I like both dubs and subs and if a dub is avalible for an anime I'm going to watch I WILL watch the dub before the sub... come at me.

Other than that I believe that Saber should sound more stern and serious. Kind of deadpan so to speak and she sounds a little wee bit kawaii uguu in the dub in my opinion. Still way better than the Stay Night dub. Good god it was awful. I don't care what nobody say.

No, that's what I'm talking about. Nobody is going to do that type of voice for Gilgamesh, it isn't needed; waste of time (ie most people won't pick up that it is Mesopotamian (nodody knows exactly what they sounded like back then in his era anyway) and furthermore the majority of people wouldn't care). Kate Higgin's rendition of Saber is probably what you're thinking of, the upright and authoritativeness present in the voice. I'm not sure if you noticed, but Ayako Kawasumi gave off a "kawaii uguu" (cute? What exactly do you mean, because I heard no "cute" tone to the voice) vibe with Saber as well (the car riding scene in episode 3 comes to mind), but that's unimportant. Saber isn't a deadpan voiced individual, she isn't impassive or expressionless - she just tries very hard to suppress her personal feelings and both voice actresses (Wahlgren and Kawasumi) both show that very well in their own ways. I thought the Stay Night dub was decent, there are certainly worse out there. Opinions, opinons...

We don't even know how French was spoken in the Middle Ages so, best of luck with Stone Age Mesopotamian.

I have only watched the dub trailers since I don't have neon alley

Having watched the show subbed, and with only the trailer in mind, I would say they picked a pretty good cast. They could have done a better job with Archer's voice maybe, but that was very small. Compared to other dubs coming out recently, judging by the trailer alone it looks promising.

I want to see the dub so badly. This is my favorite show yet.

Third. After Kate Higgins and Michelle Ruff. Give it time, I think you'll like Kari Wahlgren's Saber.

Fate Zero is one of the dubs that I dont mind watching, even though I saw it subbed first (granted, I have only saw 2 episodes dubbed). It isn't perfect (every time Saber calls Irisveil's name I twitch a little) and overall it isnt as good as the sub, but for a first time watcher I think it is fine. My friend was watching Fate/Zero dubbed and he hasnt said a word about the voice actors. I think the dub is fine for first time watchers, and thats all I really want from a dub. I don't expect a dub to be as good or better than the sub, just good enough for first time watchers to like.

And to all those that say that all dubs are bad, I point you to the direction of Baccano!, one show that pretty much has to be watched dubbed. Like, you NEED the dub to fully appreciate the New York accent properly.

Been a while huh? "LAWL"

Yea. I would watch this one if I can access it easily without paying too much and legit and in good quality- just like Stein:GATE. In short, probably not.

But, I do like F/Z so much that I bought this:

(My own picture taking by the way)

Well, nice talking with you again. Hope to see you more on the /AMP/ thread and such.
