Just marathoned Haruhi and I have to say - The DVD subtitles are horrible.

Hooorrible. Since I watched it dubbed twice, I remember most of the lines of the dub.
Do you know how irritating it is to see a hilarious line being turned into something completely ordinary?
Also, "future men".

I don't know how afk's subs everyone has a hard-on for are, but I'm guessing they are better in that regard.

I still think the dub is superior in terms of phrasing.

I do agree with you, just saying...

If Bandai licenses it, they got balls.
Not if they pop it out as a a sub only deal.

The new mantra for Bandai seeems to be "We're only giveing dubs to Gundam but we still expect you to pay full price for them".

So many series now not geting bought because of that.

afk used "turn-ons" to translate "moe".
Other than that, I don't know anything about them, but unless they somehow managed to outdo the dub phrasing in every other part, this makes them bad.

I'd say they're about the same for most scenes. Beyond that, it's really a matter of taste or whether or not Bang Zoom! actually translated the line correctly. ("Groups of two," anyone? )

There's also the potentially problematic issue of the dub having cut out all mention of sliders. We don't know if anything will come of it, but still...

They'll be able to mention them in Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody.

Does the current dub use "sliders" in Haruhi's introductory speech?

If anything, you can assume Haruhi doesn't say 'slider' in the introduction because Kyon told the younger Haruhi he hadn't met any sliders, only the other three, so Haruhi decided to focus on those instead. If it does end up bugging anyone I'm sure they'll just do some research.

Aside from doing a rerelease of the '06 season to fix the problem, that'd probably be the best solution...

Very good idea. That would be the best course for the dubbed anime to take, I think.

That's what I thought would be best, too, but that could be interpreted as her not creating sliders in the first place as a result of the conversation. Doesn't really matter.

You've apparently never seen the interviews with her they did for the Cowboy Bebop "Remix" DVDs where she's speaking in her normal voice, which most decidedly is "hot". Not that her Faye Valentine voice isn't when it calls for it to be (or Bleach's Yoruichi, for that matter).

Poll Time: Dubbed Endless Eight > Fan-subbed Endless Eight > Bandai-subbed Endless Eight

Implying '>' means 'will be greater than,' I say yes. The only really hard part about watching all eight episodes for me was reading the subtitles. I think hearing it in a language you understand will make watching it easier, plus you can focus more on the actual episodes (animation, music, whatever). Bandai's subs will only make reading it worse...

And if most people think that way, a sub-only release of the new episodes will be bad.

If they are going to do it, might as well go all out and match the first run.

Aside from using "Future Men" I didn't find the subtitles on the DVDs to be that bad.

I can just about envision listening to Crispin Freeman recite the same 6.75 episodes of dialogue. I can pretty much envision the rest of the English cast in Endless Eight too. So yes, I'd definitely love to spend less of my time reading subs, and more playing "what's new this episode."

I wonder how JYB's version of "We've entered an endless recursion of time" will sound...probably not as cool sounding.
