I'm seriously about to vomit rainbows because Nomake Wan blew my mind not once, but twice since I last posted. Well played, King N1.

MGS is predominantly English first now as a whole, isn't it? Not just the dub.

I meant more in terms of development, but yeah, that too.

It's gotten to the point where we get the games before Japan.

I usually prefer subbed anime but if I'm doing something else or I'm just too lazy to read the subs in general (which most of the time I'm not) I'll just watch the dubbed version

I think nowadays dubbed anime is a lost art-form, unless it's a big production.

I always liked the option to choose between 2 or more languages on the fly ~ it's a really helpful tool for studying Japanese & other languages.

Likewise you get to hear either good or hilarious dialogue in English, a plus for people like me that are passionate about ADR, singing, and acting. ♪ ♫

But yeah it's definitely a lost art, usually cause of budget & time constraints. Hopefully the future will still see more good animation both subbed & dubbed tho right! happy.gif

Personally if it sounds good I like it. There are some Subs that I cant stand listening to and there are some Dubs which I cant either.
Some of them I love both. I like what I like and I don't put much thought into it. derp.gif

I like subs. Don't like dubs. However, I don't really give dubs much of a chance to impress me since the first thing I do as soon as I hear English come out is to change the language. The only dubs I like are from abridged series. Those are nice. Otherwise, I always get chills and goosebumps from how awkward the dubs are.

i havent seen Aoi Hana, atleast not that i remember so ATM. almost any anime is fair game, it depends on the time and what radio stations are playing certain metal programs. lately ive took a break from Zeta Gundam around 19 eps into a re watching. i got too much music and anime to watch. i got several current series i havent been catching up on also.....sad.gif

im relying on CR and YT for most of the series and usually the ones on YT are those fucking live reaction vids rant.gif rant.gif rant.gif i stay away from those live reaction vids as much as possible.

I've started playing NieR:Automata and think both Japanese & English dubs are exquisite!user posted image

My only gripe with the game is that it doesn't have a Korean dub ~ would've thoroughly enjoyed & learned a bit from that too.

Since reading this thread, I started dabbling in a few episodes of dubs by re-watching a few episodes of Prison School. Admittedly, many crucial lines had the perfect delivery. However, there are also some lines where either the words or the tone of voice was just inappropriate, making me cringe.

I still think English dubs are inferior to the native Japanese ones. However, it really might be a culture thing. I found that Japanese dubs for My Little Pony is similar in that they get the right delivery most of the time, but there are a few awkward lines here and there that just seem unnatural.

I think as humans ~ we naturally want something authentic & original. When we were kids we were told to settle for what was given to us cause the original wasn't available, or most times nobody ever told us an original ever existed. eg. Robotech & Macross, Sailor Moon, etc etc

I get the feeling Japanese guys our age probably went thru the same thing... which explains why Gackt & other J-rock singers love classic Johnny B Goode American cars, even though they're nothing to oogle over besides aesthetics.

I totally concur tho Umu. I always watch something in its native language first, then try the dub's ~

Tho with technology & the internet nowadays, most stuff not worth watching/playing never gets a localized release, but the stuff that shines gets bi-lingual sometimes even tri-lingual & more ports. Moon Pie ... what a time to be alive

I generally prefer subs, but dubs in your native language aren't bad after all, especially when it comes to Dragon Ball Z. Seriously, I can't stand Son Gokus original voice (except when he's a kid in other DB shows). I mean why is such a man voiced by an old women?
