Why is English Dub so annoying? (7)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-14 17:24 ID:OSYlhpG3

So I rewatched the first episode of Azumanga Daioh english dub for a personal project the other day, and I can't believe my younger self stood this! The voices were annoying and nasal, and the characters used all sorts of weird expressions that didn't sound at all like natural speech. It did have a cheesy sort of charm to it though. But you know that saying, that "once you go black you never go back"? Well, somebody should make a rhyming saying to the same effect about watching subbed.

"once you go subbed you never go dubbed?"

It's not the original.

4 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-26 02:24 ID:5l+opUyC

If it makes you feel better, japanese voice acting for most anime doesn't sound that natural either; it's usually full of animeisms (it's the best word I could think of), exaggerated reactions and the like, for comedic or dramatic purposes. Dubbing makes it more noticeable because

a) You understand the language better, and
b) Dubs usually localise these speech quirks and mannerisms, along with wordplay/language gags and cultural references into something that makes sense for their audience, which can stick out like a sore thumb if there's no sort of cross-cultural equivalent. For example... have you ever seen someone do the 'EHHHHH?!!?!??' that shows up in Azumanga all the time when someone is surprised in real life, or even in a live-action comedy show?

Listening to jap radio shows and watching their news/talk shows is actually pretty eye-opening (or maybe ear-opening)

My Plea To Fansubbers (24)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-08-27 12:48 ID:2ecuSdbR

Please pay more attention to the importance of DVD RAWS.

The industry is currently changing to including more incentives for the Japanese to purchase DVDs, things like uncensoring, bonus episodes, and animation fixes are very commonplace nowadays. In that sense, the tv broadcast is not where the show ends.

Particularly for shows that aren't likely to be licensed, I beg that you release DVD versions, or retimed scripts for the DVD RAWS, and I thank everyone who has done so thus far. Bear in mind that I am not talking about R1 DVD rips, but am referring soley to R2 DVD rips of unlicensed series. This will not negatively impact the industry in anyway that fansubbing already doesn't.

It's time to start changing.

17 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-08-30 02:08 ID:sgJXv5i+

>>12
Yes yes. I've heard all this before. Perhaps the next thing you'll say is that they will cease production, throw their toys out of the pram and fuck the hell off back home where they'll take up jobs sweeping streets.

Nopes. I'm going to continue as I was before -- waiting for the first lawsuit, kind of like I "waited" for the Phantom game console. (har.) Unless I'm sorely mistaken, well nigh all anime is produced for the Japanese market first and licensed on the initiative of the importing company. Is the importing company going to care? Yes? No? I say fansubs are an important marketing tool for them. If someone goes to the trouble of producing quality subs for a show, there's a good chance that DVDs pressed of it will sell to the "I has 50 shelf meters of animu" crowd. Not that I actually give two shits for an import company, but what on earth have they done to deserve such frothing at the mouth loyalty?

>>14
The noble fansubber goes to tens of hours of trouble for no tangible gain to make good shit watchable to non-devotees like myself. Reputation, you say? That's ephemeral at best, actionable at worst. I see little difference between downloading fansubs and downloading television series on which the local telly is years behind if it is shown at all.

19 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-08-30 11:01 ID:Heaven

> Reputation, you say?

I most definitely do not. Where did you get that from?

> Even the "ethical" ones -- I'm sure no one with a passion for what they're doing quits entirely simply because of one series being rendered inaccessible to themselves.

I am a fansubber, and I do just that.

Leiji Matsumoto - A Fucking Legend (1)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-08-12 06:08 ID:zEeFDG2C

It kills my how underrated Leiji Matsumoto is in the west (well, the USA and anglosphere mostly, considering that Harlock is a legend in the francophone sphere, along with shit like Queen Millennia in Germany and shows in Italy).

I can't stand fags who think anime like Cowboy Bebop is ancient, when Matsumoto's space operas from the 70s are fucking great. Galaxy Express 999 was questioning the eternal life that transhumanists want now - deep, disturbing shit that really sticks with you, with tales of the ennui and horror of machine immortality. GE999 TV is amazing shit, and people FFS get over the prejudice against Leiji's "potato head" way of drawing people (his women are beautiful anyways - hello Maetel!).

If they ever carve a Mount Rushmore of anime, it will have Tezuka, Miyazaki, and Matsumoto for sure.

I agree. Everything looks weird. I'm always seeing people outside of 4chan posting about it and talking about how cool Sailor Moon Crystal is, but I really don't get it. I think it's some combination of retro+"lol i'm such a nerd, right??".

[Chat] What are you watching and how do you like it? (7)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-10-29 18:59 ID:41HDcQw4

This season I'm watching:
- Occultic;Nine
- Flip Flappers
- Keijo
- Shuumatsu no Izetta

Occultic is really fun so far, I like the fast-paced mystery and demon stuff that's going on. Of course, Ryo-tas is a delightful and dumb titty monster beyond belief, but she's cute.
Flip Flappers is great, very well animated and very cute. Papika's an adorable dummy. Pure Illusion and the fight scenes are cool.
Keijo is what it is: a show where women fight with their butts.
I haven't started Izetta yet, but I heard it's quite nice.

So, what are you watching?

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-01 17:09 ID:m7RXF3jv

Admittedly I'm still getting caught up on the classics. I started Cowboy Bebop and it's really great so far. Sorry if you were more interested in talking about things this season.

3 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-02 04:16 ID:41HDcQw4

>>2
That's fine. I watched Bebop years ago and, admittedly, the show as a whole never stuck with me. I'm normally not too big on episodic shows unless I'm watching them as they come out. I should give it another go sometime.

4 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-03 00:59 ID:m7RXF3jv

>>3
I haven't watched a ton of anime but something about the characters and setting is really neat to me. I feel like it stands out against a lot of shows that try to be way brighter I guess? It's hard to explain, maybe I'll be able to articulate a little better once I watch more.

5 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-21 19:35 ID:gNqHRA9d

>>4
You should check out Outlaw Star afterwards. It's a pretty similar show.

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-03-28 00:03 ID:u+RLbjgJ

All good selectionn.

Flip Flappers is probably top of the season for me, it's refreshing to see visually loaded, ballsy abstract anime, so out of the line from the usual cookiecutter moeblob. Although the main plot thread could use less obscurity in favor of more sophistication, everything else about this anime is so ridiculously good I can't really fault it.

As for my current watchlist:

Little Witch Academia - we expected Harry Potter anime adaption, and we're getting a really good one. The only fault is that the plot is kind of less than original...

Gi(a)rlish Number - Akira Kogami from Lucky Star got her own slice of life anime, and it's awesome exactly as it sounds.

Some older series I started from my backlog:

Request: moon language transcribers (19)

1 Name: maru : 2007-02-26 01:32 ID:cGAoYl8p

We are Code Geass fans. We are also sick of waiting a week or more for new subbed episodes. So we decided we'd sub it ourselves.

So we are a wannabe fansubbing outfit who are going to do speedsubs of Geass, but our current translator is better with the written word than the spoken. Therefore, we could use the help of 1 or 2 more fellow fans to volunteer to help transcribe the raws, and get these episodes out faster.

If you think you can help, post in this thread.

10 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-03-04 10:45 ID:Heaven

I actually considered >>9's suggestion for a moment. Guess I'm a goner then...

11 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-03-05 06:03 ID:jZgwkBvX

It looks like the good folks at Your Mom got impatient as well, because they subbed 18 ahead of gg.

GG's about 2 episodes behind now, compared to releasing a few days after the episode comes out to japan when Geass just came out. So they haven't quite pulled a Nanashi, but they're getting there.

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-03-11 00:00 ID:Fo3cMIcX

I just ran out of Shinsen subs for Geass, and watched a few episodes of gg... And I really must say, you should not be aiming lower than that. They really are quite abysmal. Well, I guess I've seen worse, but this really is bottom-of-the-pile quality.

13 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-03-11 08:07 ID:7l93e/vz

It's not quite as weird as it sounds. Many people find it easier to read a foreign language than writing/speaking/hearing it. The most easily available material in a foreign language is after all the written word.

This is ridiculous. You sound like a fucking preschooler. "Ooohh I can't have my anime for another week."
Once you try translating it, you'll see why it takes a week. There are people who are fluent, and it still takes them time. Anyone with the least bit of decency would realize this and not complain.

I have seen all of azumanga daioh and berserk so far aswell as porco rosso, flying castle lepanto and a few cowboy bebop and evangelion episodes, I liked them all.

What do you suggest?

Keijo!!!!!!!

I just finished Samurai Flamenco and goddamn, that was a good show. I'd definitely recommend it.

68 Name: NOT POPTART : 2016-10-21 22:40 ID:2EEMa6kN

Osomatsu san is a fave of mine. Cute and lighthearted, with a side of suggestive jokes

But if you want something more cute and less offensive, the older versions, Osomatsu Kun, from the 60's and the 80's are a good watch

69 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-14 17:15 ID:df0iycco

Watch Boku no Pico, can't believe no one's recommended it yet.

The Iczer trilogy: Fight! Iczer-1,Iczer-3, and Iczelion. They're all short and really tight, and very good all around.

Watch a positive review of any anime by Digibro, then watch that anime. He will convince you that it is good, giving you a positive beforehand assumption.

72 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-01-22 14:31 ID:h9o5byjg

Watch Ghost in the shell. You will be sutisfied with the story of that anime after you finish watching.
