  • I agree, shows shouldn't be judged based on how they sound in comparison to the Japanese. If a voice fits the visual that's all that matters to me. That and the actor giving a good performance in the first place. I don't hold it against Sabat that his Vegeta sounds nothing like Horikawa's and I like it just fine except at the times when his acting is just plain bad (season 3 comes to mind). On the flip side, Eric Vale pretty much never sounds good as Trunks not even in Kai and that's a problem. I like Mike McFarland's Roshi because I think the voice suits him while the Japanese voice is entirely different and equally fitting it its own way. On the other hand while I appreciate her talent, Masako Nozawa doesn't suit Goku in my opinion but then again I don't really like any of Goku's dub actors voices in particular. I more or less tolerate all the voices of Goku.

    I do the same but even then sometimes I already dislike the English cast on it's on merits not having even seen the Japanese. Then I switch to Japanese because it's just more pleasant on the ears. Such was the case with Zeta Gundam (it's a Blue Water dub, they almost always suck), Hunter x Hunter (same, another Blue Water dub), Girls Bravo (a surprisingly bad LA dub coming from New Generation Pictures that has plenty of talented folks but they're acting is pretty bad).

    Oh you're Soulful Chris on Twitter (just noticed from the picture). Should have figured that out I guess.

    Yeah Jacob was tweeting about how the Japanese voice of Spike gives a much different more preferable performance actually so yeah he even prefers Bebop in Japanese.

    As much crap as i give Jacob, I do understand where he's coming from but I don't agree with him that dubs have little or no value. On the other hand I've been finding myself watching more and more shows in Japanese either from the beginning or switching to the Japanese audio when I find a dub less than satisfactory. I love a good dub but I keep finding less than stellar dubs for shows i'm trying to watch. It's starting to make me feel like a subbie honestly. I guess that's just the way it goes.
