When I first heard the dub, I thought it was okay, but then it grew on me and now I love it just as much as the Japanese version, and I honestly don't get what people find so wrong with the voices aside from a few weird-sounding lines here and there

Also, the dub should stay consistant through all 6 DVDs, since, as has already been mentioned, FUNimation's only producing the DVDs for Geneon and is doing nothing to the dub at all

I'm pretty sure FUNi doesn't have Kai, but I think they've said they'd consider picking it up if the first season sells well

I've definitely heard worse when it comes to dubbing, I actually learned to lower my expectations a lot when it comes to this... so I guess when I first heard the English dub of Higurashi I wasn't really turned off as much as other people were. I still prefer and watch the Japanese version, but the English dub still isn't anywhere near the worst that I've heard. @_@;

Yeah sorry, I was typing it, and then as I was typing it.... I was like 1- Where did I hear this from? and 2- What the heck am I typing?

Yes. Don't believe me, I just spew lies D: I apologize for the lack of judgement/brain matter.

Yeah, I like a lot of the fandubs. If only they weren't just clips, eh?
Even though it sounds a tad too old, Satoko's dub voice is really growing on me. Same for Frederica. Rika's, Rena's, and Oishi's probably never will, but life goes on. Satoshi's wasn't the worst, but I don't like it very much. It sounds similar to Keiichi's, but a bit deeper, I think.

Eh, I'm not a huge fan of most fandubs. The mic quality for a lot of them is ussually pretty poor.

Anyways, I like the Geneon dub for the most part. The only voice I'm not a huge fan of is Rena's and that's mostly because it sounds like she's struggling with the voice a bit. Of course, that's only by judging from the first disk.
Normally dubs tend to improve as the actors settle into their parts, so I'll have to see how she does on the next disks.

LOVE Keiichi's voice by the by. It's wonderful how his voice kind of cracks when he's in "freaking the hell out" mode *laughs*.

The only voice I really wish they'd change would be Rika's. Oishii's is kinda nail-on-chalkboard too, but we don't have to listen to him as much.

Uh... this isn't bumping, is it?

Anyway, I got the fifth DVD today (no digital camera or scanner, so no pictures. Sorry.). It included a mini poster of Shion facing away from Satoshi and kind of had a magenta background.

+Good acting from most of the characters, though sometimes the wrong emotions were used for the wrong scenes.
-Shmion's laugh hasn't improved.
+Satoko's final speech was done very well.
-Unless I misheard, Rina didn't call Rena "Reina."
-Satoko's VA still can't do her trademark laugh properly.
+Rika vs Shion was done pretty well, though Rika didn't call Shion a sadist.
-Everyone but Rena seems to pronounce Satoko "Sadoko."

But did Shion say "fun-fun underground torture chamber?" Please say she did.

...Sadly, no. She said,
"Hey, I tell you what. Let's change the stage a little bit. I say we take all this fun we're having down to the torture room! Ahahaha!"

I really wish they would release the box set date already~~
But eh, the dub is kind of strange, but I think they're doing a good job so far, not excellent, but not bad either

Well on the bright side---

That'll be enough time to save up money for it + others...

On the emo dark side---

*bangs head on desk*
Well, at least now I can focus my money on those ghost hunt / lucky star dvds, eh?

Really? Not even an FYE? Sure it's expensive, but they actually do sell the Higurashi dvds in their anime section (Flashback to last time I was in FYE~ Caught unaware when I saw them sitting there lonely on the shelf T_T)

Anyway, hey there's always the internets o__O I buy most of my stuff online.

BestBuy has an anime section. You can get pretty good deals online like Mistypearl said. FYE I have found to be really expensive, but Best Buy is not much better. Sometimes they have good deals on old classics nobody wants

All we know about Volume 6 is that it will be released Dec 23. You probably shouldn't expect a box set until February (wouldn't that be interesting if the release date of the box set is the release date of Rei).

Being in Japan, I'd like to ask a question: Do English dub voice actors/actresses have their radio shows about the anime or have fan events promoting the anime?

This is one of the interesting parts of the Japanese anime industry - there are lots of tie-ins to promote the sales of the DVDs. Do Anime released in the US have such promos? Or is just based on fansub popularity?
