Re: Jim Cummings accusations

It's absolutely shocking and disheartening. I have nothing but respect for this man's voice acting. Whether it turns out to be true or not, nothing can change the fact that he has made a lot of...

Genuine Concern

Recently, I stumbled across the Jan Rabson page looking at a comment I made two years ago, and seeing the backlash I got from it. I began to feel very concerned about how I may have been coming...

Re: Top Ten Nintendo Dubs

Didn't they use Kris Zimmerman to do the DLC of Breath of the Wild? I thought I saw her name.

Anyway I didn't think BOTW's dub was that bad. It would have to be Baten Kaitos I or Arc Rise...

Re: Dub vs Sub/ Dub Haters

It CAN be frustrating to deal with, yes. But at the same time what's more important is how YOU, the viewer, feels about the dub. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't. And nobody...

Re: Philip Bartlett and Alexander J. Rose

It's Dick Rodstein. I just found out because I recently saw a space documentary on YouTube and recognized his rich baritone right away. All those guys are Dick Rodstein.

Re: Dubbing that alters the story

WINDARIA is an early example of dubbing of how it was cut around and mutilated to the point where it didn't feel like the original. Renaming the cast, terminology, and world and even tacking on...

Re: Studio Ghibli: End of an Era

Come to think of it I realized I had jumped the gun when I said that Ghibli's era was over. I realized I had received a bad translation and that ANN cleared up that story.

It doesn't sound like...

Re: Does it ever bother you that an English VA is too old for the character?

To me it's not a question about whether an English VA is "too old" to play a specific character. It's more about how well he comes across. I don't have any major problems, per say, with Vic...

Re: Favorite Jack Fletcher dubs

Watching Twilight of the Dark Master so far. So far I don't notice any grating issues about it, acting or quality wise. But there's a fair amount of extra dialogue and in some cases, extreme...

GKids Gets Kaguya

This is rather interesting; the next Ghibli film by Takahata is picked up by GKids. That's quite surprising considering Disney usually handles the Ghibli films. Then again, Poppy Hill was an...

Re: Favourite Kevin Seymour dubs

Are they really that better? I hope so, the original seemed kinda dry and deadpan. Even Wings of Honneamise's dub, while an older dub than GitS, was better executed IMO.

(OT: I still disliked...

Re: Favourite Kevin Seymour dubs

I've enjoyed most of Seymour's dubs from what I've seen, but either way, yes, it's a tragedy he's gone. He will be sorely missed.

Lemme see if I can remember his directed dubs from the top of my...

Absolutely. This is a movie I can't watch in anything but English.

Re: Favorite Jack Fletcher dubs

It's a great dub, no doubt, but Jack Fletcher didn't helm this one. It was John Lasseter.

Favorite Jack Fletcher dubs

Re: The Wind Rises

Having finally seen the film and its dub, here's my thoughts as copied from FandomPost.

I'm rather torn about Miyazaki's swan song. I wasn't particularly captivated by the film; it's gorgeously...

Re: Dub vs Sub/ Dub Haters

The Miyazaki dubs are as great as any dub can get, but they're also very strongly debated by many hardcore fans of the original Japanese versions and/or previous existing dubs. In fact, a lot of...
