Madoka - I'm surprisingly satisfied with her voice. I think the voice actor hit the mark with her. Never really been too interested in Madoka's character to begin with so I can't really think of much else to say. 8/10

Sayaka - Does a pretty good job giving off the right vibe but the voice still hasn't grown on me completely and it'll be interesting to see how they do with Sayaka's character towards the end of the series. 7.5/10

Kyouko - Her voice feels like it personifies the most generic of choices that english voice acting could have taken with her but it's not inherently bad just because of that. 7.5/10

Homura - Not a bad job... but not really a good job either. It works though, I suppose. 6/10

Mami - Wow. First one that I think is actually really bad out of the entire cast. Not sure what they were thinking. It's funny seeing the "Big sister figure to Madoka and Sayaka" writen there because it feels like we're hearing Mami based on the perception of her that Madoka has in her head of this strong and mature character rather than based on how she actually should sound like. 3.5/10

Kyubey - Not too thrilled with the voice but it could have been a lot worse I guess. I was actually kind of expecting it to be worse... so I guess I'm satisfied in a way. 4.5/10

I was expecting the dub to be bad but overall I'd say it's pretty decent. It doesn't stand out as being one of the better dubs in the past few years (largely because dubs have been doing a pretty solid job lately) but it's watchable.

Madoka's and HomuHomu's voice is.. somehow, sometimes it's fit and sometimes it gives me chill...
Sayaka's voice is... unexpected fine
Mami's voice is... uh... sounds too old, rather than what she's actually
QB - sounds like usual QB... not. I don't mind QB's voice though.


No matter how I love MSMM and HomuMado, dub is always a poison for me. It's quite well enough for a dub though

According to a mutual friend who translated the Yara-On! commentary:
Quote:
Nobody commented on the quality of translation (which is not surprising) but all commented how similar the English voices of Sayaka, Kyubey, and Mami sounded like the Japanese originals.

I would go and say Kyubey voice is something similar in a way, although it's not, but Mami...

I actually think Mami's one of the better ones here.

Homura, well, it's not like I was expecting anything...

She sounds unnatural, I don't know it just rubbed me the wrong way.

Kyouko sounds more or less like she should, so does Mephistopheles.

I seem to be on the opposite side of the fence for the most part. I didn't mind either Homura or Mami (though I mostly agree with the criticism of their voices), but I really disliked Sayaka's voice. Madoka's was probably the closest to being perfect in my opinion, and Kyoko was pretty good. Madoka's mom made me wince though.

Ehh, I had little intention to watch the dub (unless it were to troll my little sister <_<), so I don't really care either way.

For three second, Madoka, Sayaka and QB voice reminds me of... Pokemon..
I'm more concerned for continuations and movies rather than dub, since it's truly a poison for me. That one video had me roll seven times on the bed yesterday.

Poison...

Not too keen on Mami, though she might be better in her more emotional scenes.
Madoka and Sayaka sound really good imo, and Homura; well, I love Christina Vee. I've followed her since before she became a voice actress, so I'm thrilled on her behalf that she got to play a key role in a series like this!

Kyouka, Sayaka and Kyubey sounded real good to me. Everyone else seems fine by dub standards. I just hope they can step it up a little when things turn serious.

Don't think I've seen this posted: An interview wth the english VA of Madoka

As well a a clip of her in action

I hadn't watched english VA's at work before so after watching that I looked at some other clips and wow,the dubbing culture sure is different in the US and Japan.

I mean Japan has VAs act together most of the time,no headphones and they seem to go through whole scenes in one take and in chronological order while in the US it's the VAs alone and almost line by line.
