I think a majority of hate comes from people who just hate dub, and that these people were complaining ever since they figured out that AoT was probably going to get dubbed.

Although I admit Levi's VA is going to give off a different vibe... But the clean freak joke will be a little funnier :P


It was the same for Toradora. A lot of people like the cast & voicing but then there's the weaboos who think "You ruined it by having a dub" I hope they realize it's not going got be perfect, not all Japanese voice acting is he best either, and they need to stop complaining

I think every anime fan knows that most characters (both English & Japanese voices) are voiced by adults. But what I'm saying is he is an adult.


I'm talking about everyday life. Who knows, perhaps he could still sound like a teenager? Look at Hilary Haag, she's known for having a natural child-like voice. What he sounds like in Japanese or English is based on how the casting director believes he should sound, not necessarily how he might actually sound if you gave him his own voice.

I wouldn't bother looking at the comments to be honest.


They're more in favor than against.

I thought it was all pretty good. I think Armin's Japanese voice suits him better, but I like the American voice better. Armin's voice in the original annoyed me

Favor? I'm surprised since majority of YouTube comments on English dubs are from people that hate dubs. Yet they worship the original because the Japanese voice actors are gods in their eyes.

Not... really? Almost all the ones on official Funi clips are favorable, for the majority of their dubs (not just AoT), but that could be because they're already fans and already like the work Funi does...

Then again, I don't go around hunting for sub vs dub debates... I'm usually the guy who is walking through the voice acting forest and trips over a sub vs dub debate branch. They're very... prickly... you know?

I see. We'll just wait a bit longer since the series hasn't completely been made. We still have to hear about who Erens' voice actor shall be.

I hope it's Samuel L. Jackson.

People are just more inclined to complain about bad stuff than praise good stuff.

Most of the comments putting the seiyuu up on a pedestal are from people who don't speak a lick of Japanese outside what they've picked up from anime (and, to a lesser extent, Persona 3/4). Weeaboos who worship the seiyuu without being able to understand what they're saying, as well as decry the performances of English VAs on the grounds they're speaking English and/or are not the original seiyuu, should not be taken seriously.

At. All.

Wanted to make a quick general note.

The current VA for Levi doesn't need to be replaced as long as he can alter it to match Levi's personality. The current dub sounds too giddy and has corny one liner dialogue when Levi is very lethargic in voice tone and dark inside.

We'll see once it officially comes out.
