I'll say it again (though you may have missed the edit) those two will probably be the ONLY young audience, simply because they're close friends.

You should add this clip at the end  ;D :icon_mrgreen: ;D

I didn't get that last post, but at the end we're doing the "Anime Hoedown"

I can't believe that people still get them confused,
Anime and cartoons, the way the do amuse.
One main difference, it is a simple thing,
in Anime openings they know how to sing.

Not a lot of people know what Anime is,
most of them think it's just a show for kids.
But they are wrong, for they do not see,
what they cut from shows like Pokemon is partial nudity.

I LOVE anime I watch it everyday!!!
For 24 hours straight I NEVER go away!!!
One thing that I noticed is..... *faints from exhaustion*


When it comes to dubbing Funimation is the best.
They make Vegeta sound better than the rest.
Only one exception, a quote so legend;
Anime popularity is over nine thousand.

Over nine thousand!!!

Basically the NGE has little about Mecha compared with the psychology in it.

What!!! Over 9000?!?!

That scouter must be malfunctioning...

And my last post was referring that people like/watch cartoons because its funny... its a simple story... and there's no complex stuff involved... (at least the cartoons I have in mind) and showing people that are not used to anime complex story lines and stuff... will just push them away... and with english dub... they will surely push them away... XD

English dubbing quality can vary from one voice actor or another, but most of the time it isn't that good
many have really hard to replicate the style or the accent of the seyuus
but the thing is if you expect the exact same kind of voice of some character in English, you would most likely be disappointed.

meaning that the voice acting styles could be different from Japanese or another countries
too add more to the cause, many voice actors mainly voice over cartoons and others are live-action actors

so its better not to have those expectations from them and give them a chance it might not turn as bad as you think ^-^ it is just like looking things in another angle
because they as well put effort in dubbing this

funny how I just discussed this with cosmic

The problem I se with English dubbing, is that no matter what decade or studio they are recorded in, they all sound the same to me. The guys always have that teen-surfer voice, and all of the girls have that same ambitious voice that just doesn't blend in. (this is my opinion, not a fact)

It seems that in English dubbing they have this rule that all main female characters have to have this acute high annoying voice and the males... either have girly normal voices or totally macho voice. The funny thing is that in Looney Tunes cartoons, their voices aren't bad but in Anime dubbings their horrible. Are they doing it on purpose so that cartoons > Anime? xD

It must be, because I also find the voices in american cartoons to be better too.

In Japan they employ experienced actors to do the voices, in the dubs they usually employ actors who haven't got a lot of experience and are much cheaper. Probably because it is expensive to translate anime so they cut costs when picking actors. There are also less actors that do anime outside of Japan.

I don't believe there is a Great Conspiracy to keep Anime down. XD  I think it's simply that the dubbing actors & actresses are replicating the original (Japanese) performances in every way they can (in order to best preserve that performance) and that includes the higher-pitch you find in Japanese voices in general. Not a lot of contralto's and basso's in the Japanese voice-acting pool, I reckon'.

I just don't like dubbing... For girls (characters) that are supposed to be 13 to 16 years old end up with a voice of 30/40 year old woman voice...
And the guys voices are even worst they have girly voices like stated by cata... or sometimes they have the teen surfer voice like stated by Sonicdaman... and they always sound like they end each phrase with an exclamation point...

Check this out... LoL
