The dub's been decent so far, though there are still some tweaks that should be make to some voices (ie. C.C. and Suzaku, a bit) ... Jeremiah's voice is spot-on from what I can tell. Awesome. b

Dame daaaa

I still can't accept dubs >_<

Though Cecile does sound cute :3

Oh, and the way they pronounce Britannia is correct in english. At least in the UK, though I am too use to the way the Japanese pronounce it

C.C. and Lelouch's voices are pretty bad imho. He can't really pull of Lulu's normal voice and it's worse when he tries to do Zero (at least in the small previews I've seen). C.C. sounds like a little girl. Doesn't have that air of indifference that C.C. should have. Overall, the dub could be a hell of a lot worse. I suppose since CG's seiyuu are so damn good I think it's hard for english VA's to even come close.

But yeah, definitely sticking to subs.

Im quite sure that the creator said he wanted C.C's english voice to sound younger.

I thought they just got sent Taniguchi's notes about how he choose the Japanese VAs and then they worked from those.

Well there were those comments regarding how he went about choosing them though those may have been just notes to go off of.

So is it too difficult for you to try the dub on its own merits and not make comparisons to the original Japanese? Like pretend watching Code Geass for the first time ever?

That is quite hard for some since they can become comfortable with the japanese voices to the point where that is the way they feel the characters need to sound like and feel like.

Indeed. And in a language like English all of the above are perfectly possible to accomplish with the proper pronunciation, accentuation and tone.
C.C's speech here, emphasizes nothing. And if I know Kates, she's gonna continue with that wrong tone throughout all the show. Shame people. I know she's popular enough but she's hardly the most talented one out there, any of the other voice actress here on this show would have done her job better without even trying too hard. I seriously am very disappointed, I can't believe she'd do such a horrible job, it's like she's doing it on purpose.
I won't forgive C.C been ruined like this. No way.

"He mustn't die!"

Right, so, I'm still thinking to myself, "Why didn't they just leave it at 'Don't kill him!'?" :|

And Kallen's line was made of lulz. And I'm appalled by Shirley and Milly, somewhat. More on Shirley's part, but eh. Rivalz's name pronunciation is weird. But his voice acting is quite fitting, like Jeremiah.

Lelouch is... well, you guys have said it already. No use repeating it.

Ditto what Dann said.

It's quite a mysterious thing that the first voice you hear from a character automatically becomes the best defult voice from him/her. Kinda like how new born chicks react when they hatch.

Well, I did try though. But the trailers made me cringe. Back to the real lulu

To be honest, I would not have picked the pick actor that they did for Lelouch. Same goes for Suzaku. However, I liked everyone else. They didn't do a bad job with the dub.

I don't remember who else the VA for Lelouch did, but I recognize his voice. Anyone know? I feel like it should be a character I should know right away....

Edit: Nevermind, I know now! That's the same voice actor as the guy who's in the dubbed version of Bleach! Yeah, not a VA I'd choose to play an antihero....

Yeah, I figured that out, eventually. Thanks.

And I love Kallen's line "You fellas know full well what this badass mother can do!" I laughed SO HARD.

After watching the first episode, these are the VA's I thought were excellent:
Lloyd
Orange-kuuuuuuuuuuuun! XD
Diethard

The other ones were okay, but obviously the japanese voice actors I liked more. Frankly, without Lelouch's charismatic and deep voice, the show loses too much of it's epic flair.

C.C........um ok...but um....I'll see were it goes.
Lloyd by far my favorite.

Diethard is a bit deep but its good to.
Kallen was ok

Well, I sat down to watch the dub. Though I'd comment on the actors, I'll start by giving them props for being one of the best dubs I've heard in a long while.
  • LELOUCH: Johnny Bosch ~ Not good, but not bad. He may fit better into his role later down the line, and some parts I think he portrayed amazing Lelouch apathy. I'd say he was around a 7/10.
  • SUZAKU: Yuri Lowenthal ~ Fitting. All I really have to say, the actor did his job to portray Suzaku to the best of my expectations. 10/10
  • C.C.: Kate Higgins ~ I don't mind the younger voice, I think it actually makes C2 sound the way she looks. I can't really judge her yet as she's not had enough time on screen. Though that one line made my skin crawl a little...
  • KALLEN: Karen Strassman ~ No complaints, at first I thought her voice was a little odd, but by the end I was used to it. Still needs time for an actual review.
  • LLOYD: Liam O'Brien ~ Wonderful is the only word. It makes him feel even more sadistic than the Japanese version. 10/10
  • TOHDOH: Steve Blum ~ MIA
  • BARTLEY: Peter Spellos ~ I thought it was perfect. The voice fit what I'd expect from a big burly general. 10/10
  • EMPEROR: Michael McConnohie ~ MIA
  • SHIRLEY: Amy Kincaid ~ Fit a school girl, I think. I'm not going to give her a rating yet...
  • MILLY: Julie Ann Taylor ~ See above. I'll say that they hit her sarcasm and teasing tone quite well.
  • CLOVIS: Sam Riegel ~ Fit him to a T. 10/10
  • CÉCILE: Deborah Sale Butler ~ Just as 'cute' as the Japanese version. 10/10
  • CORNELIA: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn ~ MIA
  • DARLTON: Travis Willingham ~ MIA
  • DIETHARD: Jamieson Price ~ Blarhajshdkjks! I was like followed by . Yes, it was that awesome. 11/10.
  • EUPHEMIA: Michelle Ruff ~ MIA
  • GUILFORD: Roger Craig Smith ~ MIA
  • JEREMIAH: Crispin Freeman ~ Nice indeed. 10/10
  • NUNNALLY: Rebecca Forstadt ~ MIA
  • OHGI: Kirk Thornton ~ From the little of him that was heard in the episode, it was quite good. He sounded like the nice, caring person Ougi is. No rating yet.
  • RIVALZ: Brian Beacock ~ Well done. 9/10
  • TAMAKI: Michael Lindsay ~ MIA
  • VILLETTA: Megan Hollingshead ~ Something made me like this VA more than the seiyuu. 10/10
  • NINA: Kim Mai Guest ~ MIT... Missing In Table.
  • SAYOKO: Kim Mai Guest ~ And... MIA for the last time.

Can you imagine they are portrayed by the same VA for Holly Summers from No More Heroes? I can't.
