Graphic Design on the AIR releases have been great! The cover art on both the front and back are very colorful. The image choices and cuts were all very well implemented and they give off a very whimsical touch. Very nice! Great job, Bety Sosa!

The dub itself is also very impressive. I like the dialogue here. Very well written, well played out by the actors/actresses, which sums up a round of applause to voice director Kyle Jones. Great job, man! ADV delivered here and AIR has been a great show so far, though evidently trying to cover a lot of material in a short peroid of time.

So vol. 4 really have the summer specials. That's great then. At least they will be all together in one box. Oh, the movie will also be released after the series has ended....I believe it will be on Dec. 11, 2007. A few weeks after the last vol. was released.

They have to include the summer specials as they're the antidote.

I hate to say it, but 9 out of 10 times, japanese voice actors are WAY better than english voice actors.

Only exceptions in anime I've seen where english is actually pretty good:
Spoiler for short list:


And that's like it. I have series doubts about Air, especially given that it's not exactly the most mainstream of anime series out there.

Um... guys? The last DVD of 4 just got released, like... last week. And a good number of people (Including me) have been vastly impressed. Despite any kind of flaws, the dub will probably be winning a few awards, if such awards can be given. I went in with the same doubts, and those doubts were blown away fairly quickly.

It has been released. From the first 3 volume I must say that ADV did pretty good job with AIR dub,especially the volume 3.

Resulting verdict --- better than average dub. Now if they'd just start letting the VAs actually work together during recording we might start hearing some real acting energy.

I get the slight feeling there's a reason for why they don't. The problem may stem from the fact that they have to match up with the lip flaps (If they can't go back to the studio and get it reanimated for the dub) may make it harder for two people to go into one studio and act. Could also be budget. Maybe it costs more somehow, like higher chance of failure when the flaps are taken into account.

I'd like to get a studio representative to answer that question, rather than everyone complaining about it. There is a reason for everything.

EDIT: Emailed one at least, they said what I was expecting: The original actors have the advantage of not having to worry about animation, while the English ones do. Apparently it's hard enough getting it first try with just one person, let alone multiple.
EDIT: Another says the same thing, plus says it's easier that way to go back and touch things up, and allows you to put more time into each line. The crappy dubs are done by people blowing through them first try, normally because of smaller budgets.
They do say the American dubs actually match the lip flaps better.

Not like anyone cares, I guess...

As long as the Gao and Nihaha is still good, then the dubbed Air can be spared
