It's funny that he and Gendo's voice actor have played characters that interact with each other (soul eater, FMA:B, Eva).
You are right in that part. For John Swasey, his voice is closer to Paul Dobson's (Kent Williams's voice is a mixture between Paul Dobson's and Richard Newman's).

A lot of dubbing companies are mediocre, but 4Kids was downright terrible.
I have to disagree because 4Kids actually did some decent dubs.

The New York talent pool is by and large vastly underrated. They've produced some stellar work in the past, but have sadly more or less vanished from existence save for Pokemon. They really got a bum rap because of the 4Kids dubs.

Funimation is okay but some of their voice choices can get pretty substandard
Agreed. I actually like Funi's older dubs i.e Full Metal, Blue Gender and a few of their older dubs. New ones are hit or miss IMO.

AKA, let's Family Guy up the humor and make it "TOTALLY ZANY AND OFF THE WALL!!". Funi's comedy dubs always make me cringe a bit lol.

Sadly that's what I have been saying since I first posted the deal about New York voice actors but most people seem to haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate them because of 4Kids, it does not help some people are pissed off at the newer talents because they... aren't dubbed by 4Kids, I'll say it again even poorly recieved dubs aren't all rock bottom quality

Yikes some of Funimation newer work... so much EDGY shows, what could possibly go wrong with lots of fanservice and violence?

I know people love Funimation Keroro Gunso but I found it really over the top(even more over the top than the Japanese and I already found that over the top)

Also... for that note some of it could be contributed to Sunrise(the studio behind the anime) their attempt at comedy can get painful

I'm in the rare minority. I think FUNi nails comedy anime very well, I feel their scripts sometimes sound funnier than the Japanese versions.

I don't generally like English dubs of anime, but I finished the dub of Samurai 7, and despite a few assorted shortcomings and oddities it's a really strong dub with an entertaining voice cast. So I'm not really that biased. I do make a few exceptions to the rule.

Man that show...ugh that wasn't that good. Outside of a few performances. I didn't enjoy it. Too pretentious for an ecchi show, they're suppose to be fun and the MC bleh.

Still Caitlin Glass, Cherami Leigh, Tia Ballard, Austin Tindle and Whitney Rodgers were excellent in the show in their respective roles.

apologizes for going off topic.

Just to post this in public but it wouldn't be so bad if there's other geniune aspect like what XSEED said about Senran Kagura but for some of these harems like said Freezing to dub eh... I can see why some people thinks dubs are bad, cheese cake with gimmicky dark element HOW COOL THAT'S WHAT AMERICANS MUST LIEK
