Ya I know what you mean ... as pathethic as it is sometimes when an official dub is made it's usually the same (only with studio sound quality) ... well at least Arika voice is dead on

That's sad and pathetic, the people doing it can do just as good and for free.....really sad and pathetic.

I practically mistaken this for an actual dub but when I saw "fan" on it I was like whoa...

This is almost as good as the Mai Hime official dud heeheh

I especially like Shizuru's voice, although the lack of an high class accent is a minus. The male voices kinda suck though.

Sounds official right down to the wierd pronounciations >_< -- "oto-may"

Whoever did Arika isn't too bad; I think one of my real issues with dubs is that the characters don't sound their age. Mashiro and Nina in that fandub seems to be a prime example IMHO.

Shizuru sounds too "sassy", Mashiro sounds like 2 years old, when Takumi says "For example, the place where I found you" he puts this like Valley Girl accent on the "found you" part and it just makes it sound ridiculous, and Akira sounds way too nasal-y.

But it's way better than whatever the real Otome dub will be like when Bandai of US gets off their lazy asses and licenses it.

Though there were things I didn't like about it, for people who probably have never been VA's in their lives and are doing it for free I'd say its pretty darn good. Besides the fact that it was probably a group of friends, if that's the case it would be quite hard to find the right voices amongst a bunch of friends.

I too am suprised that my fandubs have made it to a place like this. I'm happy that most of you have enjoyed them and I hope that Bandai doesn't completely ruin the real dubs (we shall soon see with HiME coming in 2 days).

As for other stuff from the Otome & HiME world I have

My HiME ep 10 scenes 1 ta 6 (more coming slowly)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfNytWpr8VQ (1 ta 3)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_Ue9WC42tU (4 ta 6)

and then random clips back when HiME first came out (some before we had the osts)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvDQebPY75o

Yes, for future reference just knock off the san, chan, etc. Makes it sound sorta odd.

The changing of the opening songs into English was a nice touch IMO even though you guys can't sing half as well as the actual singer (no offence, but I think her voice is computer enhanced anways)

Overall you guys did a great job keep up the good work. You definately do better than some of the English VA's I hear on animes on television .

I usually knock off the "sans" "chans" "samas" and such in my own productions but some producers tend to leave them in. It just depends on the producer.

Such is different in topleka's and flarey's productions. topleka left those in, and flarey took them out.
I personally think it doesnt take away from the performance, it's an extra syllable or two to a name.

And of course Ayame wouldn't be as great as the original singer. We're fans of the series making fandubs for fans =]
Cant expect us to be perfect.
And instead of saying "You can't sing half as well as the real singer" it would be much more polite to say:

"The opening singing could use some work. For instance "this" and "that" could be improved upon."

Not only do you get to have your comment, but it also helps us AVA's and producers how to improve on future projects.

Thank you for your input. =D!

I haven't heard the official dub of HiME, but I wanted to say that you guys sounded really unnatural. Whoever did Shizuru's voice flowed the best to my ears. Though I think you guys have talent, so it would be interesting to see you with more experience.

I also noticed that there was little to no editing of where the voices came from. It was weird to hear a background character sound like she was right infront of the camera.

Just trying to provide some constructive criticism, I'm honestly impressed you went to the effort of doing this!

I really like the comment about making the background noises sound farther away.
Just lowering the volume and putting a very slight echo should fix that =]
Thank you, I'll use it for a future reference, though I have yet to mix an Otome clip xD;

Sorry, wasn't trying to be impolite, just giving my thoughts on it. I would doubt u guys could be as good because the actual singer is in a studio with voice enhancements, etc making her voice much better than it actually is.


I think you guys do a good job.
