Oh my goodness! The Higurashi dub was the worst, and I do mean worst dub I've EVER seen. It's even worse than the Naruto dub, if that's possible..... o_O. Anyways, you won't know what I mean unless you've actually heard it, so if you haven't then I suggest you look it up on youtube and prepare yourself to laugh untill your sides spilt. It's pretty hilarious, and I actually asked for the enlgish DVD volume one of Higurashi for christmas just so I could laugh at it. Me and fug-man watched it together and he totally agrees. We even know some people who hate having to read subtitles that begged for the subs after they heard this. Warning: Your ears WILL bleed. In anycase, here is my list of the top most horrible voices and why. After you've seen it, please give me your top 5 or so, and tell me what you think!

1. Rika. ............ What can I say about Rika's voice? .......... It sounds like a dying animal? No, too nice. It sounds like a dying animal with another dying animal stuck in it's throat?

2. Takano. They totally took out the druggie aspect of her voice! It just isn't Takano unless she sounds like a druggie !!! She sounds like a total sissy in the english dub.

3. Oiishi. I feel like asking him if he needs a lozenge.... Voice is WAYY to deep and it crackles.

4. Rena. She sounds like a total airhead. I mean, I know part of her cutesy act is the ditzy aspect, but still. She's not scary in the english version! It's impossible to take her seriously.

5. Mion/Shion. They sound like they're 30! I know they're older, but they aren't that old!


Next in line would have to be either Satoko or Keiichi, who sounds like a complete moron. I crack up everytime I hear his english voice say, "Oh crap! What's she doing with a hatchet!" It's too funny.

In any case, I blame Geneon going out of buisness soley on thier Higurashi dub, and as I said to fug-man, the reason the Higurashi characters scratch thier throats out in the english version is because they're trying to tear ou thier vocal chords and get rid of thier horrible voices! Lol!

OH my god I just watched part two of it (I thought it said part 1), I just can't stand it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! K1 sucks, Rena sounds like old woman (she sounds like messed up version of Kiki), Tomitake doesn't match with that looks (he's worse than dark Yugi dub), I mean all the characters' voices makes their character go 179 degrees opposite of the original.

I didn't see all of it, but I have to agree with the bad voiceovers... Keiichi and Rena sound terrible and Mion sounds REALLY old. I'm pretty sure that there are worse dubs out there, but its the worst I ever saw XD
