The Bleach english dub premiers tonight at 11:30 on Adult Swim right after the premier of Trinity Blood.

I'm looking forward to hearing the english voices, I'm curious to hear what Chad will sound like even though I don't think he speaks in the first episode.

Anyway, discuss.

Edit for content: Here is the english dub episode one that aired in Canada cut up into 3 pieces:

Lol, I saw it last night here in Canada. I thought it was awful myself. I couldn't watch more than a few seconds of it.

Seems pretty retarded to make a judgement based off of a few seconds

I disagree. I think most Mainstream anime is doomed to fail. I don't know why people constantly air crap on, but whatever.

They won't care if one person doesn't like it. I didn't think it was that bad. It wasn't the best voice acting ever but it was decent. Nobody is forcing you to watch the dubbed version anyways. Bleach will not fail just like Naruto will not fail. They have to big of a fanbase to do that. Dubbed or subbed people will still watch it.

see....i agree with you there both shows have enough backing to do well here...i just think for those who only watch the dubbed versions there missing out on the better of the two

Saying something like a few seconds is an exaggeration for effect. I did actually try to watch it, most of it in fact. However, after watching the real anime and reading the subs (which I know translating any language from one to the other is always difficult) and then seeing what they got the dubbed people to say it was a little out of sorts. Plus watching the characters faces and what they were saying it didn't always match (ie. like emotions when Rukia or Ichigo were getting frustrated/mad). One thing I did like though was how they kept the japanese names for the spells and stuff that Rukia did. I will perhaps watch the second episode to see if there is any improvement. But I much prefer watching the episodes on here as they are commercial free and I can watch as many as I want to at a time. And feel free to watch the dubbed version tonight. I just don't think it was as good as the episodes on here.

I never said anything about Bleach and Naruto and Bleach were badly dubbed. I was merely implying that most anime that reach mainstream are dubbed horribly. Mainly because of the licensing companies and how they choose voice actors and such. I however think that most mainstream anime aren't that good anyway. Not because It's mainstream. Just that a lot of them aren't that good. Cowboy Bebop was pretty mainstream and that was good. Naruto is so-so. The story is subpar at best. To be honest it's just harder to pass judgement on VO when they're in subbed that's pretty much IMO why people usually think subbed is better. Im sure there are plenty of anime that have horrible original voice acting and yet we can't tell because it's not like I've seen original Japanese theater... If they have that.

Hope AS doesn't take out the opening. It's not that bad... The opening.

Ok heres my judgment on it so far... althought I have only seen 2 main characters. Rukia's voice is perfect but her acting is bad. Ichigo's acting is good but his voice isn't for it. The translation is a little corny. Rukia's voice has potential. In fact, that's how I pictured Rukia's voice would be if it were dubbed. Johnny yong Bosch can act it but his voice just doesnt seem suited for it. I don't think there are much better than him for the part though.

It just finished here in Michigan... In my opinion it wasn't that bad of an eng dub, (especially if you've seen the fan dub of Bleach.) I'm looking forward to more Bleach on [AS].

I thought the dub over all was pretty good.

I mean, it could have been a lot worse.

i missed it when they aired it here in canada, so i was all like SHIT!!?!?!
good thing you posted links to youtube.

neways the dub was good, i like how they kept the opening and ending songs. Although ichigo's voice has a different tone, you get used to the enligsh one pretty fast. Rukia had like no emotion at all. (monotone)

8 out of 10, sometimes lacked emotion and just like all enligsh dubs they pronounce all japanese names/words with a more western accent. (which i hate)
