Underrated or not, a lot people don't like them. I don't but I have valid reasons, but this isn't the place to talk about this so we'll stop here.

No it doesn't. It needs a bit of volume yes, but I feel the English dub was actually pretty reasonable.

I prefer the Japanese dub obviously, but hearing that the English side of things turned out great was nice to hear. If you guys have not purchased the BD yet, I suggest you do.

English dubs always suck, nothing new.

Good god I'm sick of people saying this. You make it sound as if the original language can do no wrong and has no sub-par voice acting itself.

Duo Maxwell. Edward Elric. Every Disney character in Kingdom Hearts.

Good sir, I beg to differ.

Well I think the reason people have a problem with English dubbing is because its usually sub-par, to the point that its distracting.
In fact, I've only seen one anime (Cowboy Bebop) that has good dubbing.

So most English-speaking anime watchers just avoid it and not waste time buying/downloading dubbed material.
But I'll agree somewhat that people shouldn't just blindly criticize dubs and dub-watchers.

Clearly the proper voice for Goofy should be the Japanese one thank you very much.

But seriously English dubs have been getting better to the point where they are pretty much on par acting wise with the Japanese ones. It helps that the English scripts have been getting more fluid and less full of Engrishisms as well. Also helpful is that since the start of the new millennium companies have pretty much completely stopped trying to Americanize everything and to just bullshit a completely random script across based on what is happening on screen and sometimes not even.

That said I usually still prefer to watch movies and TV shows in the language they were originally intended for authenticities sake, but when it comes to shows like Gundam which often feature characters from all kinds of nationalities other than Japanese I could go either way. I mean the show even has a song with English lyrics in it's soundtrack, albeit sung by a Japanese woman with a noticeable accent:



They are fully willing to go international on this one and I say it pays to support the effort by supporting both audio dubs.

There is also a German song sung by two Japanese people too. Licht Meer. (Sea of Light)

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And its also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

I get the impression that the OST contains songs for episode 2 as well. There are tracks for Full Frontal and Captain Otto (and a 'spoiler' for Audrey, but who'd be spoiled?), so I assume we'll see more of a focus on them?

I wonder if this is the appropriate thread to ask this question; but will they reveal where Audrey has been since Z-Gundam? I kinda understand that
