That's still not the voice I had in mind for Luffy when I look at his character, but at least I don't want to punch him everytime he opens his mouth like the 4K!ds Luffy.

This is my first time hearing the original music. Can't say I was too impressed, but random clips don't give me enough to make an accurate assessment.

Luffy's VA is still bad, but it's less annoying than the 4Kids VA. Even so Buggy's VA from 4Kids is still better.

Gin's voice had me lol and worked perfectly. :p

Sanji's VA isn't annoying, but still that doesn't fit him. Nami sounds a little too old for my taste. Zeff is just awful.

I love Usopp's VA and with a bit more feeling he'd work perfectly. He doesn't sound like a wee baby and gurgle his verbs like the 4Kids VA. I bet if he spoke more like a man whenever he's not yelling that would be an awesome voice.

Morgan wasn't half bad, but sounded better as his dialogue went on.

Tashigi's Brittish accent is a nice touch, but should be done by someone who could do it better. Smoker and Zoro both have the voice of a sleazy Porn Star. I'm not kidding about that and it's just creepy. :ack: Yet that tutu comment was a really funny dub change on Zoro's part.

Everything else was just bad in general.

Seppuku is the ol sword in the stomach maybe have someone cut off your head suicide....

And I'm pretty sure Hari Kari is just another name for it.

I wonder what a FUNimation dub would sound like...

I remember before One Piece was licensed by 4Kids, people thought FUNimation has the rights to this show. One of the rumored voices was Stephanie Nadolny for Luffy. I remember people complaining about this.

It was more then a rumor. Funimation had a verbal deal, and another under the table deal was made between 4Kids and Toei.

And I believe Nadolny did voice Luffy in a sample dub Funi made.

There was also a pilot dubbed in Calgary, and directed by Teri Snelgrove. It was done for Toei specifically probably to shop around to potential licensors. A Magical DoReMi pilot was also dubbed there, and yet again directed by Snelgrove.

A Blue Water dub? I don't know if I would have liked it...

Well, to each his own, but I rather like the more recent Blue Water dubs; especially stuff by Teri Snelgrove. Strawberry Marshmallow for instance was an excellent dub both directed and apapted by her, and the dub dialogue in my opinion was even truer to the characters than the original more often than not.

Our CrystalAcids entry actually has some clips of it if you want a preview.

All the same though, I respect your opinion.

Actually, those clips weren't that bad. I guess they are improving. I didn't think the G Gundam dub was that great, but then again, I haven't heard any recent Blue Water dubs lately. I wonder how the Flame of Recca dub sounds like.

I think what Blue Water needs to do is expand their talent pool. Get new VA's to come voice at the studio.

Friday August 19 at 8:00 am can be described as the John Stamos hour since he's doing voice work in the shows that have premieres on the Disney Junior block (Mickey Mouse Funhouse and Spidey And His Amazing Friends). They're even being simulcast on the Disney Junior channel.
Today marks the 5th Year Anniversary of Sonic Mania. As someone who had their introduction to video games through the Sega Genesis Days of Sega's mascot, this game was a dream come true for me and I am hopeful it will receive a sequel some day in the future.
Smiling Friends' Brazil Special is basically Foster's Goes to Europe done right.
Check out @stephane dumas 's "SD Sketches" thread on The Drawing Board! Can you believe he's been doing this since 2011? Holy smokes!

I wouldn't be surprised if this got a show at some point.
