For example, assuming >>0's favorite was Looney Tunes: That's not an anime, dumbshit. However, it is crippled by lack of a central plot, nonexistant character development, and inability to focus on a single set of characters.

My fave: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

No protracted arguments in this thread please, just keep it going.

Why is English Dub so annoying? (19)

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.

10 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-10-21 11:16 ID:1LOqgjwj

Anyways, >>9, please listen to me. That it's really related to this thread.
I went to Yoshinoya a while ago; you know, Yoshinoya?
Well anyways there was an insane number of people there, and I couldn't get in.
Then, I looked at the banner hanging from the ceiling, and it had "150 yen off" written on it.
Oh, the stupidity. Those idiots.
You, don't come to Yoshinoya just because it's 150 yen off, fool.
It's only 150 yen, 1-5-0 YEN for crying out loud.
There're even entire families here. Family of 4, all out for some Yoshinoya, huh? How fucking nice.
"Alright, daddy's gonna order the extra-large." God I can't bear to watch.
You people, I'll give you 150 yen if you get out of those seats.
Yosinoya should be a bloody place.
That tense atmosphere, where two guys on opposite sides of the U-shaped table can start a fight at any time, the stab-or-be-stabbed
mentality, that's what's great about this place.
Women and children should screw off and stay home.

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-11-14 17:44 ID:QF/6G8yl

Dubs are annoying because anime is bad. You just don't realize it, but Miyazaki was right. The Miyazaki dubs are good not because they were done by Disney, but that the Miyazaki movies had good dialogue. Most anime has dialogue that is totally removed from how people actually talk or act. i.e. accidentally touching a girls boob and then screaming and fainting. I get that that is an extreme example, but really the vast majority of anime dialogue suffers from the same problem.

Anime is largely written by people who don't know anything about people. Just reclusive mangaka and otaku, so they can't write good dialogue to save their life. It seems passable in Japanese because when you read subtitles, you are really only understanding the main thoughts that are being conveyed. When it is actually redubbed in your native language, the intricacies become more obvious and you can tell how cringe-worthy the dialogue actually is. It's unsettling in the same way that Comic Sans MS is unsettling: you don't really know why it looks wrong, it just does.

Anime with good dubs like Cowboy Bebop (at least the main characters have a good performance) have dialogue that isn't garbage, so they actually sound natural. You'll notice most dub companies use the same voice actors over and over, so if you don't believe me, what's your reasoning?

Bullshit. I don't like Miyazaki dubs either and just try and tell me Ghost in the Shell had a bad dub because the dialogue sucks with a straight face. Many dubs change the dialogue, making it more vulgar and unnatural too. Plus you should be comparing the dialogue to other Japanese media, not the media of countries with a completely different mindset. If you can only get the main idea from subtitles, you're probably a dubfag.

I remember watching Gurren Lagann dubbed first because I was a super casual when it was new. I tried watching it in Japanese the first time and I couldn't take it.
Few years later, I rewatched it in Japanese and loved it.
Few years later again, watched a spoiler scene on youtube and nearly threw up. What used to make me cry or at least hold back tears instead made me want to close the video.

I've been slowly learning Japanese specifically because of this phenomenon. One day I won't need subs and I can focus on character movements instead of staring at words for a whole show.

True. In anime, they talk (usually) slower and pronounce the slylables better. Good when you're learning jap. Also they have trained voice-actors while in USA, the voice-actor pool is shallower.
Having clear voices help when the low-budget anime is essentially radio drama with cheap animation.

Do you really believe the fake Miyazaki quotes you read on the internet? If so you should feel ashamed.
This is so full of blatant holes, not the least of which being that dubs are made by the same 7-8 people who hate anime.

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?

70 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-11-21 19:31 ID:/gYPl8dd

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

Recommend me some top tier comedy animes, please.
Or drama/serialized would also be okay, but I have a seriously short attention span, so it would need to be gripping, or also mixed with comedy.

Animes I've enjoyed are Detroit Metal City and Bartender (it was just cozy).

Sgt. Keroro

those are all pretty fast-paced comedy shows. Hope you enjoy.

From what I remember of it, Saiunkoku Monogatari seemed decent if long-winded, though I only got an episode or two into it. Been meaning to go back to it and watch through for over a decade now, but I always manage to forget and shelve it in the end.

for straight comedy I would recommend teekyuu and Ninin ga Shinobuden
slice of life comedy I would second lucky star, di gi charat, i would add yuyushiki and hidamari sketch.
drama/serialized you're gonna want to check out mushishi, and maybe some magical girl shows if you're not scared of that stuff like doremi and cardcaptor sakura.

There's no five star acting in it, but that's part of what makes it so funny. In Japanese, Sato has a "cool guy" voice, some in Japan would even consider it a handsome voice. In the ENG dub his voice just sounds funny. And of course the added swears are more hard hitting than the subs (which are actually inaccurate translations if you own the DVDs). If you've never watched the entire dub, just think of a scene you thought was kind of funny and then watch the dubbed version of it. You'll end up seeing something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLnagfwTwKo

I think in Japanese Sato sounds kike a ladies man while in English he sounds more like a screwed up unemployed shut-in which he is of course and that doesn't surprise me that the subtitles are incorrect and yeah i own the DVD.
