    Re: Shouldn't dub?

    It surely is true that no dubbed anime can replace the original Japanese translations. But Dubbing allows for anime to be viewed by a greater audience and promoting the art of Anime to more and more people. It's a great thing we all have the power to make choices.

    All I'm asking you to do is think. To think about styles or traits of specific anime series that might not come across so well or even survive the dubbing process. SPECIFIC animes, not generalizations.

    If you don't understand what I'm asking, then you probably haven't read the first post, where my suggestion of BECK is actually a pretty decent example of what I mean.
    Seriously, does anyone actually read the first post? Or do you all just assume what the question is from the thread title?

    ok i will comply...i feel that naruto and one-piece were travesties, especially since i had been watching naruto in japanese for quite some time...dubbing is not bad tho, some of my favorite animes such as hellsing and trigun have great dubbing

    i read the first post, and here is one example, in my opinion, of an anime that shouldn't be dubbed- Naruto. I've seen both versions and personally I think the subtitles are better than the dub. The voice actors for that dub don't seem to fit the characters, though I don't hate the dub or anything.

    Re: Shouldn't dub?

    I think that any series should be dubbed, it is just not done very well usually. The voices don't match, the characters dont look like they are talking, etc., etc.. Dubbing does let me pay more attention to the animation, since i dont have to read constantly, but i'm a fast reader, so it doesn't really bother me. It's all really in how it all gets put together.

    People give general opinions a lot on the net, that's normal. Plus, many people might just totally disagree with you on a whole, so them giving an example is n/a.

    I'm a good example btw.

    I answered your question, I said that no anime should have been dubbed.

    No, you didn't answer my question. My question is asking for specifics, not generalizations. Like, I'm asking you people to think of animes that have aspects that may not, for example, translation well in a dub.

    Honestly, go back and read my original post/question again. Then READ MY EXAMPLE. It's a very good example for clarifying what I'm asking/looking for.
