IMO it was decently done i guess i dont like to be too negative but the Yozora I thought was a bad casting. Didn't fit in even a little bit when i heard it.

Other then that it was just ok i guess i'll watch the first 3 eps dubbed and give it a shot but for the most part i dont see this taking over my liking of the japanese cast.

Going just from the trailer, Yozora's casting definitely doesn't fit.
Her California accent ends up making her sound like a stereotypical "Libby" character.

Rather than giving off the authoritative, imperious feel of her Jp voice, she sounds more like a spoiled, stuck up, "popular girl." That doesn't really suit any of the characters, but you would expect that kind of sound from Sena if anyone, definitely not Yozora.

Kodaka, well he didn't really sound into it, but it maybe it's better when set in the anime itself. From the other characters that were there, they sounded alright.

I thought meat was the one most out of place, the others I could tolerate.

It sounds awful, but I didn't have great expectations going in to the jump anyway.

I thought Rena sounded pretty good, but it's pretty typical I'll find at least one O.K. voice but funimation will have f***** up the rest of the entire cast. Yozora sounds awful. Kodaka sounds boring.

With those two characters smeared we don't have Haganai, it's more like a YouTube fan-quality dub over.

The uploader has not made this video available in your country?

So Funimation even blocks me from watching a trailer?

Whatever, I suppose I will glance at it when I import the set.

Not really interested in it. I'm not a fan of dubs anyways and this one doesn't seem appealing to me.

I'm so disappointed with the dub cast. They made everyone sound really really boring and out of character. Not a good dub to one of my favorite anime.

I'm a big fan of English dubs but, this one just doesn't sound right to me. Especially Kodaka's voice.
I'm not completely turned off by it. So, I'll still give the dub a try though. It was only just a little preview.

Sounds like people on Youtube who makes Abridged versions of anime. Parody dubbing.
So it's bad for something that should be professional dubbing.

"the english version of the japanese actor rika's voice", do you mean the English voice actress of Rika? Alexis Tipton? She was really good as Yomi from Ga Rei Zero and Musubi from Sekirei (she's also voicing Inori in Guilty Crown).

Yozora sounded a little... rough around the edges, if you will. Seeing as its a newcomer I'm not surprised, though in time I'm sure she'll improve and get used to the role (and, if she continues down the road of dubbing, any subsequent roles). Whitney Rodgers, hmm... I wish her the best of luck.

That was...different. I don't think the emotional aspects of season 1 are going to work with those voices, but that's just me. good series, pumped for the LN's continuing and another anime announcement hopefully in a few years.

I dont think the problem with Yozora's was the voice per say. I think the deep voice lower pitch works well for the character, i think the problem is more with how the lines are delivered, it just doesnt really fit the character.

On the other hand, i never watch Anime dubbed, I buy the DVD and Blu-rays, but never use the dub option, so i am not really equipped to judge English dubs.

no i was talking about yozora

ive never seen those other that have this Alexis but she sounded really good and im glad that someone that sounds that good is doing Inori (didnt really hear much from her in the GC dub trailer)
