Fandubbed Bleach!

(I found this on gamefaqs earlier today, if it's "teh old", I apologize. )
http://www.youtube.com/watch.php?v=e...&search=Bleach

This is a fandub in which some of the characters from Bleach have been given english voices. The results vary... Some of the voices were very good in my opinion (Hanataru and that little kid captain with white hair for example) while some didn't fit at all. (Renji )
Anyway, watch it and give your opinion of it below!

Just watched. Wow..the voices were..umm..interesting? That is to say the least..

Renji's voice was outright hilarious..whenever he spoke I couldn't help but laugh a little. I didn't like any of the voices really. This makes me fear what a professional dub will be like if Bleach is ever licensed.

Hitsu's voice sounded a little like Gohans :|

Ah, this should be worth watching!

*watches*

Easily the funniest thing I've seen all week. Yachiru and Momo were a bit annoying though.

EDIT- ZOMG

The really sad thing is that this is probably better than the VA for Magna Carta on PS2 was.

Renji made me bust a gut, that was priceless. I thought yachiru really fit though, it made me want to slam my face against my desk, the perfect hyper 6 year old vioce.

The voice acting from that game is what makes me hesitate from buying it.
On topic::"I found you!" xD

The VA in that game will make you:

A) Hesitate in buying it
B) Wish humans didn't have voices after playing it
C) Wonder who the hell green-lighted a final production version of that game with such horrible voice acting. It seriously would have been better with the original Japanese (Korean?) voices and subtitles. WTF.

But that's neither here nor there. Another sad thing is that this probably isn't much worse from the ADV Evangelion dubbing, which, from what I can tell, often doesn't even come close to matching the subtitles.

EDIT: Why does Shunsui sound like he just got done catching "rad waves" off the coast of California? He is way more quiet and contemplative than that. Just because he's a Hippie-gami doesn't mean he sounds like a total bum.

Upon further review, all of the Japanese zanpatkouto releases are going to sound really, really bad with American voices, although these guys manage to do a pretty *decent* job.

OMFG KENPACHI SOUNDS SO PERVERTED AND YACHIRU SOUNDS DO KIDDY AND HITSUGAYA SOUNDS SO DAM WEIRD AND ICHIGO SOUNDS SO STUPID AND RENJI SOUNDS SO... DAM UGLY-ASS BAD!!

If they take away the blood of Bleach and make it a little kiddy show I'm gonna...... The Japanese version sounds so much better. I would rather watch Japanese show without translations instead of listening to the English piece of CRAP. I mean, come on, I could do the voices wayyy better than they could do it.

The problem with dubbing is that they don't really seem to get ACTORS. They find people whose voices would fit the part and cast them. They don't show situation-specific emotions or anything like that.

Also, the difference of the pacing between Japanese and English (the fact that some things take 10 seconds to say in Japanese that are 2 words in English, and vice versa) causes a lot of things to come out really weird.

Subbing is clearly the best alternative but you can't expect kids (probably the target fanbase once it comes stateside) to have the attention span to pay attention to subtitles.

alot of the voices in that video weren't too bad though. Some were though. Although I do agree with the horrible acting that plagues dubbed anime. I almost puked when I saw dubbed FMA. Ed was sopposed to be acting bad-ass and the actor was talking like he's so excited he's about to pee himself. It's like he didn't even try at all.

Funny, Ed's english VA didn't sound like that to me at all...

Yeah, the voices were unpolished but not horrible, but sometimes I really wonder where ADV and the like get their VAs from for dubbing. They are, in my estimation, probably worse than a random person you pull off the street.

Yachiru is suppose to be kiddy.

I think Shunsui has a nice voice. Ukitake sounds very funny. The sound doesn't match his sick personality.
