To me, Rem is the best voice thus far, closely followed by Ryuk. Misa was better than I'd expected. I had imagined her voice to be slightly higher in pitch than it is, just very slightly, but she has the jovial attitude down as far as I can tell.

I'm not diasppointed. However, I still quite dislike L's voice. Even still, I do understand that topping Kappei Yamaguchi is quite impossibe by any standards.

Rem is practically identical to the Japanese version, but since the Japanese Rem was so good, that's a good thing. Misa is even better, not annoying high-pitched, and she has that child like innocence to her.

I think they have succeeded greatly in picking the perfect voices to the chars. I even think they sound better than the subbed version ( esp Ryuk whos voice is spot on). Misa Misa's voice - well it's already been said thats gd. Personally this has to be one of the best dubs out there - and so it shud given the awesomeness of the series

Personally, after watching the Japanese version, I find it hard to accept the dub. I really don't like it, L just sounds.. ugh. Light, nuh. Just, not my thing. I can't say I like very many dubs for animes.

Oh yea...That's because if you watch the Japanese dub the English dub is hard to accept because your used to the voice from the Japanese dub..so the new voice for English just isn't right...It's like when the replace an actor for another actor on a show...It just takes some getting used to because it's a different person....

I agree, but L's voice is one of the dubs that I do like. In my opinion he sounds almost exactly like he looks, if you know what I mean. His dub voice sounds almost like an android or robot when he pronounces certain syllables, the voice actor is very talented.

Frankly, this is one of the very few shows where I liked the english dub better than the japanese audio w/ subs. I found Light's and L's voices to be too high pitched in the japanese audio. Double goes for Amane Misa. God her voice was awful in the japanese audio. It was to me what a dog whistle is to animals.

I REALLY liked Light's voice and L's voice in the english dub. Even though some people might have found it bland/boring, I liked his kind of slovenly genius (he talked softly, kind of mumbled, and yet pulled off sounding like a genius 24/7, always thinking, and sounds how he looks). Even though I didn't like his character, Light's voice actor pulled off crazy-genius-god-complex-madman very well, I thought. I actually haven't finished it yet in English, since I watched it first in japanese, but I like both.

In general I have to say that the dub is decent some characters are better then others. Ryuk, Rem, Misa, and Light had good voices, though certain characters such as L just sound off, but that is probably because of how use I am to hearing the Japanese voices.

I found that some of the voices I liked even more than the subbed version. Like Ryuk and Misa.

I think they did a pretty good job. I like Light's and Ryuuk's voices, and Misa's is OK. Though, I do NOT like L's. I dont particulary hate it though. I just think its too deep. It just doesnt sound very Lish...y'know?

Funny thing they did for the second OP, at the end they had the subtitles show something about a hymn to humanity and omitted the f word, yet they didn't bleep out anything!

Light is best known as Amuro Ray from Mobile Suit Gundam, he's also Lan from Megaman NT.

Also Quattro in Gundam Wing. The thing that makes it wierd is that he always plays brave, nice, good guys. Although I don't think he does poorly in Death Note. I just have to reenvision the character, which I am always happy to do.

L's English voice actor is amazing. Wow, the inflection quirks are perfect. And when he calls Matsuda/Matsui pretending to be some vapid chum, I thought that was extremely well done.
