Hey guys,
What are your thoughts on Elfin Lied English Dubbed?

My Personal thoughts were that it was cracking story but it was severely let down by the voice acting.

I saw it first in English and I don't remember many problems, except the main dude was pretty crappy at first.

Elfen Lied was really good and i thought that the English version was ok, I mean I have heard worse, much worse.

It was an alright dub. I need to buy it on Blu-ray (I have it on DVD currently), it's cheap.

Kira Vincent-Davis was great as Lucy. I really liked hers.

I disliked the conversation's between Kohta and Yuka, they just grained against my brain.

And Stark700 im not sure if it was a good or a bad thing that this was your first anime; on one hand it shows you how great a story can interweave but on the other hand the pure violence and gore could of put you off completely.

Kind of smacks you up side the head . . . sorry...

I never thought it was a bad dub... I usually watch subs. It's rare to find an English dub that is as good as the original... This one could have been better but it works, I don't expect much more than that.

I found to be perfectly fine, nothing bad really stood out for me.

It was one of the first that I watched too. I very much enjoyed it, I own the dvd and have the new bluray w/ the ova preordered. I haven't watched the sub in a while but I remember the dub being kinda meh. Especially Kurama, all I heard was that same monotone most of the time.

In the few misdoes I have watched I was either crying my eyes out or want to hug Nyu with every fiber of my being.

And sometimes at the same time.

Huh, didn't know the blue-ray was coming out, gonna have to order it.

I normally hate prefer subs with few exceptions but I was rather surprised at just how good the dub was. Admittedly Kohta and Yuki were a bit annoying but the wonderful voice acting for Lucy more than made up for it. It's one of very few anime that I don't have a preference for watching it in either language.

The only character I liked was Nana. The story and characters overall were terrible, but that's not the actors' fault.
