To me dubs ruin the feel of an anime. For example, Japanese puns aren't funny when dubbed since they aren't explained like in most fan-subs! I always watch in subs ^^


I would agree for most anime, but I have seen anime that were funnier in English, and not because of accidents or bad dubbing. Slayers, for instance, has much better puns in English than it does in Japanese.

But what do You think about dubbing in anime in general?


I usually don't watch dubs when I do watch anime, but my brother almost always watches dubs because he's dyslexic and he can't keep up with the subs. He only watches the subs once to hear what the original voices are like, and then he goes back to dubs. I asked him what he thought of dubs after hearing the original, and he still thinks dubs are really good. So, I think unless the anime depends entirely on its humor and puns for its attraction (like Yakitate Japan for instance), dubbing doesn't harm an anime all that much. I think a dub depends on the quality of the voice actors, and if there are good voice actors, then I don't think the anime is losing anything by being in English as opposed to Japanese.

One anime I fell in love with when I first saw it was "Natsume Yuujinchou".

Here's the summary here:

For as long as he can remember, Takashi has been cursed by the ability to see spirits, a power inherited from his grandmother Reiko. Upon her death, Reiko bequeaths to her grandson several of her belongings - including the Book of Friends, a book containing the names of spirits Reiko had bullied into servitude. The Book of Friends is a highly prized item in the spirit world, and spirits hound Takashi constantly. Whereas Reiko formed the contracts, however, Takashi spends his time dissolving the contracts and releasing the various spirits that come to him for help. But that doesn't mean there aren't malicious spirits trying to kill him. Which is where Madara (called Nyanko-sensei by Natsume) comes in; Madara serves as Natsume's bodyguard and spiritual advisor of sorts, even though he is motivated by his own desire to possess the Book of Friends. He later on begins to become more attached to Takashi

Well, that's right down to the bottom. Thouhg I really in most cases prefer the originals - the guys that chose the voice actors in those anime I watch, could do better.

I will ask now about some good soundtracks - how 'bout them? Any fav ones?

I'm a big fan of MoNoNoKe (and Ayakashi - the BakeNeko episodes).
I'm in love with the Medicine Seller's character, and I'm absolutely fan of his seiyuu, Sakurai Takahiro. :oops:
But I'm in love with the whole series, my bedroom's wall is full with paintings in this style. ^^ I haven't finished the painting, but I continue it.

My other love is Saiunkoku monogatari because of the music and the drawing style, and naturally the clothes. maikoemotebase


Out of these I really like Ouran High School Host Club, they're really funny <3

I like anything with cats in it. I'm currently watching Natsume Yuujinchou on Crunchyroll. Nyanko-sensei is so cute and hilarious.

About Anime in general I learnt yesterday that the character designer Shingo Araki is dead. His most famous work (for me) is Saint Seiya but he did also Goldorak, Ulysse 31 etc. (see others : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shingo_Araki )

He was very talented, if you compare for example the manga Saint Seiya and the Anime there is no doubt about his talent, this serie wouldn't have become so popular without his work.

I love anime!!! Movies and series also.
My favourite is Yu Yu Hakusho, my first anime. What I saw in last years the best was Claymore.
