    Wait, they REdubbed it? So the voices on the cartoon network is different than on the DVD? WTF is the point of that?

    If that's not the case, then you must be watching a different series, cos Milk's japanese voice is pretty subdued and childish, and her english voice is loud and obnoxious. Tetsuko sounds like an old lady, and the President sounds like the mayor from PPG.

    I'm extremely anal about dubbed anime. About all I can stand is FLCL and spirited away. FMA so far has been passable, but otherwise I stick to subbed.

    My friend that is the case. The REdubbed it Into corny voices. Milk and Tetska almost sound like the New Version of the PPG(Power Puff Girls)!

    Please don't make this into a Gaia online topic, please.

    First off, my ignorant friend, there is a big difference between dubbing and editing. Editing is where they take out parts that aern't "KIDS SAFE" or contain alot of blood, and edit them to be suitable for the wee yougin's eyes. Second, Dubbing is a form of recording voice avaivble to match the animations language.
    So the proper term would be ; ENGLISH DUBBING. And not all of them are bad. Recently, there have been tons of outstanding voice work done on various series;
    Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Nightwalker, FLCL,Saiyuki, Outlaw Star, Wolfs Rain, Angel Sanctuary. These are just to name a few. Also note that dubbing is an extreamly hard task; One word in Japanese can have at least 3 different meanings/tones. This means editors have to add more dialouge to have the character mouths fit with what they are saying. Does it mean it is any different from the origional? No.
    And if you are such a "PUREST" wouldn't you watch your anime raw, insted of subtitled? After all, subtitles are considered editing ; a crutch to not knowing the Japanese language.

    My point is: You eltist really should investiage things before you go shooting off your mouth. Because, if you ask me, the only that sucks around here is your lame opinion on English Dubbing. Its all based upon person preference; they are not different from eachother..at all.

    I've come to understand why they need to change stuff when they dub anime. My problem is simply how they do it. Many times (to me) they concentrate so hard on trying to get their voices to match the mouth movements, the acting is lost. That's the number one problem. I'll admit dubbing (for DVDs in particular) has gotten a lot better. They stay closer to the script, or if they change it, the main idea is there. I just wish the acting wouldnt suffer from it.

    Sometimes it is also has to do with timing/budget. If the show isn't a really big endorsment or the director doesn't put alot of funding into the project, it will be a rushed job. Needless to say, alot of the ealier anime projects were like that.

    Seriously....I hated that softness also - I didn't know if it was just me at first or what! haha - they should never do that - leave it alone - dubbing in general isn't a good idea...

    If its wasn't for dubbing, there wouldn't be as much anime here right now. So i'd be alittle more appreciative of it.
