Seriously? I was worried that they might 'pull a Lacus' (from Gundam SEED--no idea about Destiny). >_>; No offense to those who DO like it... but seriously. Wow. Just wow.

Hi, all! A newbie here with her humble opinion.

I went to the first volume premiere at Anime Boston, and honestly, I greatly enjoyed the dub. Crispin Freeman is absolutely perfect as Kyon, and everyone else seemed very well chosen. Even Wendee Lee, whom I had originally wanted but began to doubt after the trailer, performed well on the whole. There were a few iffy line readings, and I doubt many can say she is even on par with Hirano, but she's decent at the least.

A couple of things to note: the voice for the cat, as originally shown in the clips on Anime TV, has changed. The current choice is much closer to the original.

Also, there is no mention of sliders, to the point where I wonder if they're trying to avoid issues with the old Fox series of the same name.

They do realise that could cause problems if a potential sequel(s) were to mention sliders, right?

I wouldn't think it would be an issue... The Slider TV show is a dead franchise, last I heard it was ran to the ground anyway. Worse comes to worse, they can use dimensional travellers. But still, I doubt it would get that bad.

Did that franchise even coin the term 'Sliders' to describe those who engage in dimensional/parallel-world travel?
I remember (vaguely, I was young) when the pilot aired, and I remember that I even guessed what it was about from the title, so I tend to conclude that I'd heard that somewhere else before.

The concept is much older than the series...... but I've not seen the *term* used prior to the series. However.. its entered the vernacular as a common term (see Wiki) so I doubt there's a real problem outside of lots of people just having no idea what it means anymore.

I take back what I said about Itsuki's english dub, after playing a few hours into .hack//gu vol 2... which is to me-a slightly significant difference from his tone in volume 1... i can see that he can totally dub Koizumi, thus I agree that the english dub is made of the best it can get maan! only 3 or so weeks away! I'm getting excited!

So close! Yet so far away!

One of the voices I can't wait to hear is Bridget Hoffman's portayal of Asakura. From the roles I do remember her playing, she did really well. She has the sweet voice that fits Asakura. Can't think of anyone else who would fit.

The dub was pretty bad. And especially Haruhi's voice was awful.

Exactly. It's a brilliant strategy, really: state an opinion, then omit any explanation, thereby foiling any attempt at refuting your reasoning

If I'm not mistaken, the voices were decided based (mainly) on the voting that took place in the ASOS Brigade site. I'm pretty sure that Haruhi's voice is the one that won the voting there. And it was pretty bad. Generic, crappy, unfitting, unenthusiastic. I remember liking one of the other voices. But the otaku community (or else The Bad Taste Community ) voted for this one. It's not my problem.

You should be really proud of yourself, revealing my complex strategy.

I didn't know I had to make a report explaining what I said. Oh, sorry, I forgot that internet is such a serious business.

PS. Let the bad rep come.

Actually the one that was leading was Kari Wahlgren. Wendee Lee was second.

Oh, no, you don't HAVE to, you know. Doing that is merely the difference between your being viewed as a serious commentator, or being viewed as an incorrigible troll who thinks with the organ below rather than the organ above.

If my interpretation of the forum rules are correct, technically you do.

It's under 2.1, I believe. Of course, I could be wrong.

I've seen maybe a couple of episodes of "Lucky Star."

Wait? What does that have to do with dubbing and SnHY?

Well, one of the characters (blue-haired gamer girl and otaku), made the observation that the radio dramas will be adapted into anime but will have different VA's. She complains that the new voice actors, of course, totally ruin the feel you get from the original radio drama. Of course, being the nerd collector that she is, she has to collect the new interpretation of the same series.

Dunno, I felt this was pretty applicable to Haruhi's dubbing and it's pretty funny in retrospect.

Who knows? Maybe the English cast will find nuances of their own, though I'm still not hoping for much.

It's just that if I made that comment in a real-life conversation, it would sound natural, but in all the pretentiousness that conquers the net. I was commenting on some voices, not expressing my opinion about a "serious and difficult" matter or whatever. And I'm pretty sure that if I said "OMGWTF THE VOICES ROCK" without explaining why I like the dub, nobody would criticize me. And don't tell me that it's different, because it just isn't.
