Wow, where'd you find that? None of those names, save Kyle Herbert's, look familiar. The dub should definately be interesting.

there is also a full pakc of the 7 clips :
http://rs114.rapidshare.com/files/33440665/higu-dub.rar

My ears bleed and my brain screams "STOP THE TORTURE" ~~

-Keiichi : maybe it is because of souichiro hoshi, but i felt his voice a bit too high-piched.
Keiichi VA failed litteraly the "usoda" part : he wasn't scared at all, but more like embarassed.

-Rena :
Kaii mode : absurdely squeaky. it is far from cute and soothing...(and you actually tell pretty well that she is forcing on her voice)
Scary mode : better, but her accent is really too rampant... (the amount of "aren't you" is exaggerated).
Her laugh doesn't work, it is too far from the normal/creepy voice to me. (if i didn't pay attention to the background, i thought it was someone else laugh.

-Mion : Decent, she is energetic, but lacks slightly of her playful side (though she succeed keeping Mion's confidence and stuff)
Too bad she failed "keiichi is angry" scene
Her psychotic laughter isn't bad at all, except at the end, sadly.
The most important thing however : Does Miss Kassidi is able to have a proper voice for Shion?

-Satoko : her laugh completely destroyed my ears. she doesn't have any "brat" vibes, and she is really forcing

-Rika : normal voice doesn't match her age nor cute parts AT ALL. it sounds like a 15 Old girl to me, or even older than this.
Can't really judge her other voice with only that tiny sample.

-Ooishi : completely out of the whack. We have a "veteran", but it sounds much more like a old marine, than our usual lecherous detective ~~

-Tomitake : I think his voice is pretty decent, if not good. i pretty much like how he was teasing keiichi, while satying natural.


really not a dub i would qualify decent...

You pretty much summed up my thoughts as well, Klashikari.
However, I like Ooishi.

I'm afraid I must agree with Klashikari and Piano Boy, listening to the clips was painful... very very painful... I believe my excitement for the dubs has shrunk greatly. But what can you do...? I'll wait to see and find out more though *nods*

Believe it or not, I like dubs. I've never heard most of Evangelion in its original language (a few lines' translation that sounded funny I checked), and I think the Bebop dub is actually better than the original cast. MSA Abenobashi also springs to mind as an example of a decent performance in the spirit of the Kansai-ben in English.
However, no amount of love for dubs will excuse bad acting (Mela Lee - Rena) and even worse casting (Minx Lee - Satoko; Reba West - Rika). I look forward to watching any series I like in English if only just to rest my brain a bit, but if the dub is bad, I just can't put up with it.

This isn't a competition as to which dub is worse. People don't want a merely half-bad dub. We want it to actually be good!

Sensing a pun

Well I have completely given up in dubs after the horrible dub of Naruto. The only other series I have watched dubbed is Chobits, which was acceptable. But this one, aww, don't even talk about it, it wastes my time.

Keiichi - I thought he was pretty decent, though I like Hoshi's version better.

Rena - It was ok, although the first clip wasn't really good. o-o

Mion - Loved her voice, goes to the decent department for me too.

Satoko - Eh..she sounds off to me.

Rika - I thought she was the worst voice in the dub. She doesn't give off the cute vibe like in the Japanese version. Though that's my opinion. ^^;;

Ooishi - I didn't like the gruff-ness in his voice, but still it's ok.

Tomitake - Another decent voice. ^^

Yeah I suck at critiques. -falls over-

Someone at /a/ says he got it in the mail.
-First DVD has 5 episodes
-Extras are basically Geneon previews
-No TIPS (Wtf?)


I hope this is just an /a/sshole messing with us.

EDIT: Why'd the hell did I put a quote?

Geneon could have possibly failed us that badly.

Right?

I agree about Tomitake. You know, his voice is the only one I have not heard even one complaint about?

I think I might be able to get used to the voice actors with time. What really bothers me, is how so many names are pronounced wrong, like Rena, Mion, Tomitake, and Satoko.;-;

And were the TIPS in the Japanese version of the anime?O_o I thought they weren''t.

as you can see in this example, they are :


much more bonus, bon OTOH, each time, there are only 3 episodes (thus 1 dvd). this isn't something you can call cheap, unfortunately.

I don't like just watching clips of a dub to see how good it is... a lot of times new voices will sound terrible at first because you're not used to them (especially English voices), but by the end of the first episode or two, they sound a lot better. (doesn't hurt that the VAs have some time to get into their new roles)
