We knew it was coming. Stiff upper lip, take it on the chin, jolly good show.

My greatest worry is that some of the voices are going to be dead on. And then the secondary characters voices will make me cringe. Which I think is totally likely. Brina Palencia as Mikasa. Todd Haberkorn as Levi. But beyond that I can't think anything positive. All the character accents are going to go out of the window, even Sasha, who is supposed to be Scottish or something, whose accent was actually relevant. My other worry is that they are going to rush the work and chose monetising the fact that it is already super popular and getting a dub out quickly so they can make the money, over actually doing a good job.

Oh well. Will always have manga and subs, even if I would like to look forward to watching it in english

I'm not as down on English dubs as a lot of people. I mean most of us owe our love of anime to the dubs of years ago. I'd say they've come a long way. I wonder if Troy Baker still does anime I'm sure there's a role perfect for him in the show.

It's still kind of funny how Japan considers a lot of their VAs to be bad in their own dubs, but then we like them more than when it's in English. I can understand why since we get plenty of bad VAs too, but the fact that that's a thing still amuses me. I wonder if any of them will sound like they had accents in connection to their heritage or if over the generations accents will have sort of blended away.

I would like some more SnK to be honest. But rewatching it in dubbed version seems kinda desperate. I already know how I'll feel when watching that dub.

Well no. For one you could enjoy the cartoon instead of spending most of it's run time looking at the bottom 10% of the screen.

Not to mention the out of place sware words that's in fan translations. You know because swearing is cool.

Hahaha nice reaction.
I'm honestly excited to see and hear who will be the dubs.
Plus, it'll give a great excuses to watch the series again!
Also, a home video release is expected to come this year!
Also (again), I hope the 2nd season comes soon after the manga series ends!
SnK mania!

What I am looking forward to: being able to eat and watch anime at the same time. I first realised it when I tried to watch Madoka and eat pizza at the same time but it is impossible. I am also looking forward to showing attack on titan to my family and friends. When you are trying to show anime to people who don't watch anime, you never start with a sub

I honestly think dubs are intended to introduce new audiences. I just find whatever is available to me. And I really need to find Madoka. Whenever kyubey is mentioned, I feel like I'm on borderline spoiler territory.

You're absolutely right. That's why niche games don't really get the dub treatment. Games like Project Cross(X) Zone was never gonna move big numbers so why waste money on a dubbing cast. I have nothing against that except I cannot get used to Christ Redfield's Japanese VA.

And Animes are basically the same. There are niche ones that don't get dubbed, but brought over here officially licensed with officially licensed subs. Sound in the Sky is one such example. In saying that some animes are just better in English. Panty and Stocking is a good example since it was basically made to mimic American cartoons and the jokes flow better in English. But I do know that some things just don't work in english too. Like the cute loli girl or the emotionally dead girl. I've never seen an English dubbed anime get that right yet.

Personally, I'm very split on the dubs for Panty and Stocking. It does "feel" right when listening to it in English, but in the Japanese dub there were a lot more charming things like how they'd say English curse words or phrases that popped out from the rest of the dialogue as well as "Ruuuuuuuruuuuu~" and "Dieto"... Those were freakin iconic in the series that didn't have nearly the same oomph in English.

I do agree that there would be some anime that has a charm with their subs. Taking rozen maiden as an example, in the sub, you hear suiseiki say "desu" at the end of all of her sentences. Which I thought was hilarious when looking at a video that captures every instance of her using the word.

I can't think of a situation where a loli has been done particularly well, unless Konata from lucky star counts, I don't know. As for the "blank girl" character, I think some good examples of it being done right are: Rei Ayanami from Evangelion, Yuki Nagato from Melancholy and Yin from DTB.

One of my favourite anime but I see more recently that allot of that is because it has allot of things that appeal to me personally. I would ask if you have ever seen a magical girl anime, it doesn't have to be all of it, just that you are aware of it. What annoys me most is when people only watch the first episode and then dismiss it as girly crap. I would say if you are thinking of watching it then try not to read anything about it before hand because you will likely find massive spoilers everywhere.

I really do know that it is a deconstruction of the magical girl genre, but I really would like to know where I can watch it, so I can not hit internet spoilers by accident like I did with with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

They were actually gonna be my "how not to do it" examples, but I thought everyone would know what I meant. They are just so drab.

You're right. Remember we had this conversation (argument). But I just think all blank characters are, well shit. They are just boring.

Pardon my bluntness, I've just finished watching the Jimquisition.

Suddenly your liking Kyoko over Homura makes more sense, although I definitely remember having a similar conversation with you before with a similar conclusion.

What is Jimquisition? Is it an anime?

No I like Homura, quite a lot actually. Her act was just a facade to protect herself. It's just Kyoko's better.

Better. It's video game related



Don't blame me for any minds blown.

I guess I should stay on topic though
