I am sick to death of all the sub/dub wars that go on all the time. Just because you like one, does not mean you have to trash the other to no end.
Watch this video, this really should open up your eyes, and stop being so narrow minded. And just to clear things up, I love both dub and sub! Everyone's personal preference is fine,if you say you like one, just don't rubbish the other. It's pathetic honestly.
Well anyway, watch the vid! It's really good. Feel free to comment about it :)
oh, P.S. if that batcountry fellow (I think that's the name) is still around, I'm sure they'll like this vid :P
Listen, I know what you said is completely reasonable and you have a lot of good factors as to how people should not fight over which is better, but the thing is, sometimes English Dubbers don't do the job seriously enough because they tend to look down on stuff from Asia. I'm an Asian so I've had personal experiences in this kind of thing. Many of the people I've met that aren't Asians act like they're at the top of the world. I don't hate English dubs since some are good, but there are a lot of English dubbers out there who insult anime by not taking the job seriously. Compare the quality of the dubs, English and Japanese. There is a clear difference in expression and voice adjustment. Some anime like Naruto, the Animax dub of Inuyasha, and the voice of Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, those are the good ones who take things seriously. if you watch plenty of anime, you would surely hear the difference. I cannot take anime seriously if the voices do not match the scenes and stuff just right. I really don't hate different language dubbing, I mean, occasionally even the Japanese original may sound weird, but I do hate how many English dubbers do not make things seem realistic in the show. The good feel of it all is just taken away. Don't you think I have a point?
I disliked batcountry because he was too much of a jerk for me to take him seriously. He insulted too much instead of being reasonable and explaining in a mature manner of why he disliked subs and Hetalia fans. Some of his points were good but he always used vulgar words against other fans. I only use my vulgar words against anime characters =P. I try not to though. He also wouldn't get the fact that no matter what you do or say those people are never going to go away. The Hetalia fans, the sub-lovers, and the Yaoi fans will ALWAYS be there no matter what you do. I understand every once in a while you need a good rant but his extreme was just unnecessary.
Anyways, either one is fine for me as long as the voices are good. I've already said enough of this point in other similar questions so. =]
really the only thing i have a problem with in anime (besides annoying characters) is what i think of as bad animation, i like subs, dubs, yaoi, yuri, straight, violence, no violence, pretty much anything, and i agree people should stop with the whole subs vs dubs thing but i still believe you and the guy in the vid could have said this a bit better, just my opinion
I miss bat country! Such a smart fan-popper. :( Anyway, this video is awesome! I have to say that it depends on the show and the voices for me. Sometimes it's easier to find subbed anime rather than complete dubbed anime and vise versa. I have no solid preference between dubs or subs because sometimes the english voices sound better than the Japanese or vise versa. I just love anime period. Dubbed or subbed. :D
I agree with everything that that guy says in the video... except for the whole "anime dubs in the 80's-90's sucked" thing. I've seen some dubs from the 80's and 90's that were pretty damn good (hell, one of my favorite anime shows of all time was dubbed in the 90's).
Also, I'm getting sick and tired of people giving 4Kids shit for doing their job. Sure, they do edit the hell out of anime when they dub it, even when it's unnecessary.
However, I think of 4Kids as more an "american TV show" company than an "anime dubbing" company. Besides, they're called "4Kids" for a reason. Did you really think that they're aiming their shit towards teenagers and adults?
Warning: I write a ton in this next part.
I haven't seen Mew Mew Power yet (mostly because I'm currently caught up with Ranma 1/2 and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers), but I imagine that an "americanized" version of that anime wouldn't be too different from an american show such as Pryde of the X-Men (I'll leave a video of it. By the way, before anyone says "Pryde of the X-Men sucks! Why'd you mention it?!", you have to consider the fact that not all TV shows (or in this case, TV pilots) (this goes for anime adaptations of manga) can be 100% percent accurate to the source material. Besides, Pryde of the X-Men was made in the 80's, not the 90's).
i don't like watching dubs but that's not to say i hate dubs, the voices just never sound right to me, but i don't go hating on people who like dubs, everyone has there own taste and they're entitled to like whatever they want. i don't think this was a particularly good question to start especially with the title "To all the dub haters out there!" it sounds like you're trying to incite something, now i'm sure that isn't the case but surely this particular subject of choice will only add more fuel to the argument for both sub haters and dub haters, i've read mostly arguments throughout the comments and answers, i haven't seen anything of the sort on any other question. this one gives a bad vibe in my opinion
