I'm confused, are you talking about dubs or the original subs? If you are talking about subs then f**k off but if you are talking about dubs then stop watching dubs.

Why can't 15 years old girls sounds like 15 years old girls in english instead of a 7 year old? It imitates the pitch which is not a smart move? I realise Japan has this sort of dumb way of making it sound cute as a fetish or something but we shouldn't stoop to that level. Say what you want about 4kids but they atleast made women sound like women or girls for that matter. In their age. Like i would rather have a stereotypically teenage voice than it being like a 7 year old speaking. Just saying.

They should learn from My Little Pony, you wanna hug them but their voice is a voice!


You are mainly talking about dubs here, right? Yeah, I agree that Moe English sucks (though admittedly most dub sucks in general) but Moe in Japanese tends to work and sound semi-realistic. As a person who has taught many high school kids in Japan, I can safely say that some of the girls actually sound like that. In fact, many of the girls who do sound like that either get idolized or get made fun of for having an anime voice.

But if you really really break it down, why the hell does a piece of artistic expression have to have realism in it? Many of these anime are about giant killer robots and magical girls. Of course they are going to have exaggerated characterizations of the characters.

Anime vs. Reality

Live with it

Anime does not have to resemble reality at all. If it did, sure we may have some proper aged voice actors, but we would get absolutely nothing other than slice-of-life stuff

I can't be sure on this...but the japanese studio's can sometimes have input on the voice actors cast in the English version so there are attempts made to match the pitch of voices in English dubs depending on the studio and contracts.

And well.....there are women of all ages in Japan who sound childlike to people outside of their own culture.

Nah its both. In Japan its somewhat a fetish of making grown up sounding like high pitched children for some reason?

But i just expected english dub to actually be somewhat real and not fall to that level as Japan has. I mean i liked in the 90s that the only stereotypes we knew about Japan was that they commit suicide for dishonour in terms of war and a teacher would say (You disapporrrnt me chiirrrld) Well i have been playing alot of Tenchu Stealth Assassin's on PS3 lately so i just kinda like that game!
