I never got why ADV UK felt the need to redub this for their release (using the Houston-based ADV voices). It seemed like a waste of money to me. There was nothing wrong with the Manga Entertainment/Animaze dub.

@PurpleWarrior13 It was the UK dub while the Manga dub was the US one thats why that dub was made.

Though what made it REALLY strange has how the American English dub was made by a British company while the UK English Dub was made by an American company. Go figure...

@Pokejedservo Yes, but why couldn't ADV UK simply reuse the Manga dub? American dubs are imported to the UK all the time. It made no sense for ADV UK to do a new one specifically for that region...

Now they are but back in the 90s maybe it was more difficult. The frame rate was and still is different between NTSC and PAL. I don't know how good technology was back then but even if it was doable maybe it was a super expensive process to adjust the tape or the equipment was not easily accessible, and maybe it made more sense to redo a dub from scratch.

Or maybe TPTB just felt like it. There internet was still primitive so illegal downloading and streaming hadn't yet eaten away at sales like they do these days. The industry was richer so there was more money to spend on dubs; and maybe there was fiercer competition between companies to try and one-up another? (The idea of sharing a dub might have been unthinkable back then) :P

@freezeframe100 The UK did get their own dubs of some stuff, we got some of their dubs, and they got some of ours. I don't think there was a technical reason why the ADV dub of Street Fighter II V was done. I think ADV just did it because they could. They had a lot of money left over from Eva afterall...

It's weird we got many dubs produced in the UK, but when Ghost in the Shell Innocence was dubbed for the UK, we had to get a new dub because that one was recorded at PAL speed. Wouldn't that also be the case for anime like Project A-Ko, Angel Cop, Mad Bull 34, and Cyber City Oedo, where we got the UK dubs? I guess maybe the sound was mixed separately for those. Since the UK gets our dubs all the time, I'm guessing NTSC can more easily be converted to PAL.
