You have to give them credit for consistency at least, they even had Michelle Ruff in that brief scene as Minori Chihara. I'm interested to see how they handle Yūko Gotō since Stephanie Sheh is already Akira.

I have to say, Hynden Walch's voice for Yutaka gave me cavities; she fu**in' nailed it!

Oh crap, I didn't look hard enough for this thread. >_>

Anyway, I've posted my thoughts about Volume 4 of the Lucky Star dub. I'm not sure cross-posting is allowed, but I wanted to say that everything is on the newest page of Lucky Star - Licensed

Behind a little, just got DVD 4.

BUT ... Yutaka and Minami's voices are PER. FECT.
They aren't totally the same as the Japanese version but they get the idea across perfectly.

I think that the Lucky Star dub was probably one of the best English dubs for an anime in a long time, and is one of my favorites.

Bad Deidara fan person!

Dubs aren't all that bad,but it really counts on the company.
I rarely see bad dubs in rather mainstream anime(...*cough* 4kids butchers mainstream anime *cough*).

The Lucky Star dub is great,have you watched a few episodes?

Please don't tell me you've passed judgement without even actually watching it.

Somehow I think you either haven't watched it or are extremely biased against dubbing of all forms.

I liked the dub, I tend to like dubs anyway, when others don't, especially if I've watched a dub before the subtitled version, like Final Fantasy Unlimited, and Kenshin. Also to my ears, the japanese voices all sound too similar most of the time, with a few exceptions. so with a dub it tends to give characters more personality to me. that and reading the subtitles I tend to miss references and back ground jokes, that I'm catching watching the dubbed version

I totally agree with you. Whenever I'm watching subs, I'm not great at multitasking, so I always rather focus on the characters or the words. So if there is a dub, I usually watch that.

I thought Lucky Star's dub was fantastic. I gotta admit, when I first heard Kagami I was a little , but her voice grew on me.

One of the most stand out things about this dub--in my opinion--is Wendee Lee's performance as Konata, or rather, how she made it something of her own. Aya Hirano's portrayal seemed to emphasize Konata's cuteness, while Lee's emphasized Konata's nerdiness. Both are valid in my book. Anyway, kudos to the dubbing team .

It's gonna be hard to do Konata's voice as well as Aya did it. >_<

That's why Wendee Lee's so awesome . Even if she didn't top Aya (I still can't decide which one I prefer), she provided another valid interpretation. Like I said before: Aya = cute Konata, Wendee = otaku Konata.

I'm probably an ancient Hater Curmudgeon of dubs... and I have to admit there have been a few dubs in the last couple of years that didn't suck. And this was one of them. I still feel like viewers are missing something... but I feel that much less so than in most cases for this instance. The VAs for Konata and Kagami, in particular, did a fair job especially after the first couple of episodes.

I'm also looking fairly kindly on Spice&Wolf (due out any second) based on the streaming episodes seen so far. And I *love* that series so it had pretty high bars to reach for the english dub. I could name a few others I was relatively sanguine about from the last year or two.

So, in summary, dubbing seems to be improving (though its spotty, I was cringing seconds into the recent Moribito effort and forcing my way through a couple of episodes just made it worse).

I loved Hynden's Walch voice acting of Yutaka, she sounds soo adorable :P. And this is the same voice actor who does Starfire in Teen Titans. Is it just me, or Hynden Walch voice acting mostly fits for moe characters?

I was really impressed with the dubbing, to be honest. In fact, Lucky Star is one of the few series where I prefer the dub over the sub. Wendee Lee is always a good choice for a voice actress and she continues to show that she can pull off a lot of roles.

Also, I prefer the dub because to me it just seemed funnier than the original subs. Mainly because they can be more crude and immature ^_^ My greatest example being the infamous timotei scene, "Bitchin'! That's the reply I was looking for!"
