    Wonder if the snow and 80 MPH winds and closed highways will delay my copy…

    The only reason I’ll buy this is to spend hours staring at 2Bs ass.
    I guess I might play it eventually.

    English dub for this didn’t sound bad at all.

    All english dub lacks emotion, which makes them feel out of place with japanese games or anime series.

    Figured it was going to be one of those “all English dubs suck” nonsense responses.

    Not all English dubs suck, there are two or three that’s OK (princess mononoke comes to mind) but mostly it’s cringe.

    Isn’t that just because we have no idea what their saying in Japanese? People tend to give the original Japanese the benefit of the doubt as they things generally sound less cringy in text then spoken.

    I can’t even count the amount of Japanese songs that I thought sounded cool, then I saw the lyrics and realized it’s the dumbest shit ever.

    I’m not a native English speaker. Growing up, English and Japanese was equally foreign to me, so I’ve never thought about it that way. I’m not nearly as good at Japanese as I am at English (especially writing /reading) but I still prefer Japanese if there’s a choice. I think translations in general suck, as you don’t get the original authors work, instead you get something filtered through an other person, which adds a layer of subjective thoughts and feelings.

    That’s true especially for games and origonal Anime series as that’s usually the original form for that story.
    I find its less so for anime that is based off a manga/LN as most of the time it is already some third parties interpretation on who should voice the original author’s work, and many times its heavily influenced by who is popular at the time as opposed to that voice really being the vision for the character (and honestly, i’m sure many game character voices are picked the same way). For me unless it was the author’s original goal to have that person voice the character when he was writing it then the anime studio’s opinion on that matter doesn’t really carry any weight.

    I wasen’t the one who gave a fuck, you did. when your Replied.

    That’s actually an interesting point of view, I haven’t thought of that. I guess I see the anime adaptation as its own work, a derivative work with it’s own artistic vision, but a translation is supposed to keep it as close to the original as possible.
    It’s true as you say that voices are often chosen based on the popularity of the seiyuu, and part of that is because a lot of anime fans watch because of who is voicing and not because of the story. It’s a shame really.
