So, I am reading through the cast list on Stratos 4 and am surprised how many of the English VAs are successful singers and have been in big name TV shows and movies.

So why is it the dub is so generic-sounding?

I have been trying to get through my unwatched backlog. I finished up Ouran Host Club and am currently watching Stratos 4. Still have Gravion, Baka & Test, Sailor Moon S, Angel Beats, Naruto Shippuden 12-14, Persona 4, Infinite Statos, Clannad, Demon King Daimao, Tiger & Bunny, and Birdy the Mighty: Decode. Probably forgetting a bunch. That isn't counting series I have that I haven't watched in a long time. I haven't watched Escaflowne or Fruits Basket in almost a decade.

Also getting back into Shonen Jump since the last issue I read was back in December.


I feel ya on the backlog bud. Buy so much, just to have it sit. Will tackle through it sooner or later though haha.

I just think that episode 7 of Attack on Titan will be one of those polarizing moments where people will decide whether they want to keep watching the show or not. I can easily see where both sides would be coming from.

I can also see why people might lose interest early on. The show really needs to give its viewers a strong sense of how futile and desperate humanity's struggle is in order for the show to work. Instead of your normal 1-3 episodes of "Everything is hopeless," they're getting 6 (and at this point may be assuming it will never end).

I have to confess though, if not for this thread (and the short window in which the bulk of the manga series was around $6/each) I'd have completely ignored this series. For now, I'm glad that I didn't.

I was polarized in the opening minutes of episode 1, and set it down for good after episode 2. I hear the manga is great, though.

Gonna try out Yahari instead. Hearing good things.

To an extent, I agree with you, she did a really good job, and she even imitated Tange's "HOÉ"'s very well, while sort of making it her own. I say to an extent, because no matter how good she was, she still sounded off for some reason. (I know that spelling was weird, but that was the only way I could spell HOÉ WITH the accentuation on the Ay/long e sound (depending on what you think the sound was)). I take it back, the dub was good, the only voice I questioned was Mona Marshall as Sjaoran. It's not that she's a bad voice actor, because she's not. And it's not that she can't voice boys, because she can. It's that it sounded weird to have two girls talking to each other about love, in this case. That's why I hope if someone dubs CCS they get a boy to do the voice (like hiro in fruits basket), instead of a girl, so they sound like an honest to goodness boy, or they get Sarah Strange. I'd be okay with that.

Stratos 4 has excellent casting — all of the voices feel like they match their characters — but the voice actors were poorly directed, which is why it has that mediocre aura. I still loved the English dub though, despite that.

I think one of the reasons why some people have been hating on it is due to some places getting unfinished versions of the episodes. Certain stations in japan air it earlier and the studio gives them an incomplete version due to time constraints.

The schedule the 2 simulcasts having been airing lately. It seems like Funimation has been getting the complete version(they've delayed it a couple times due to materials), while Crunchyroll is airing the unfinished version.

Need some advice. I have some CDJapan points about to expire, so I need to use them. Was going to get a Nanoha figure or a Gundam model, but shipping would be higher than the actual item. Is there any promo code that I can use to reduce shipping or something cheap enough that it wouldn't matter?

If anything, at least it's something new that isn't licensed by Funimation. As this might mean there's a chance stuff from other publishers have a chance of getting on there.

Assuming they remember it exists.

A little surprised they haven't gone after Tiger & Bunny.

Then again, Viz may want to save all their stuff for Neon Alley.

Attack on Titan isn't bad by any means, but definitely has been dragging on a little too much and has seemed completely hopeless for a long time.

Spoilers:
Spoiler


I'll keep watching it cuz it still keeps my interest, but definitely not as good as it was hyped up to be. The last few seasons of shows have been mostly crap.


Unrelated, I started watching Last Exile. More than halfway through it right now and LOVING IT. Characters, world, everything about it is top-notch even though it's slightly dated (2004 I think). Highly recommended. I see a spiritual successor is airing right now, not exactly sure what that's about but seems similar to Eureka Seven vs. ES AO.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I was suggested that I post this in another thread I had started.... Anyhow, sometime in the mid 2000s my wife and I decided we should watch/collect Amine so we did just that.... The collect part, not so much the watch part. I have three boxes of anime. Some of its sealed but most of its not sealed... but pretty much all of its not been watched. It is all on DVD. (Original DVDs)

Anyhow, its been taking up space for too long... and its time to move it out.

So, besides asking you all is their any resources I can look at to figure out fair market value for this stuff?

Trade Thread Link (Note: I'm more than willing to look at trade lists...)

Anyhow, thank you all for your time and responses. :)

It was our collection... So some of it is probably a bit more aimed at me. ;)

Out of curiosity, can anyone give me a rough estimate what my R.O.D. TV collector box + Vol 1 would be worth out in the wild...? I had someone ask about it but I'm seeing 20 in trade from Amazon and someone trying to get 69 dollars for a used one. (Link)

I finally got around to watching episode 7 of Attack on Titan. Remember what I said earlier about episode seven? Move that to episode 8 :D

@Inmate - Honestly, the best way to figure out fmv on this stuff is to check eBay for closed listings, and other used dvd stores. The full sets and the collectible stuff (like ROD) you should have no problems with. However, you'll probably find that it'll be tough when trying to sell the individual volumes. The hardest things to get rid of are middle volumes of a series (followed shortly by first volumes) because there's such a narrow group of people looking for them.

Worst case scenario on the individuals though, you can always save them for $5 coupons during Best Buy's next Upgrade and Save. That's where all of my random volumes end up :D

Nintendo is strategizing Pokemon X and Y like never before. The other three series debuted as close to a month beforehand, but the X and Y anime will be http://bulbanews.bul...in_in_October'>debuting in October. No info was given, but I doubt Iris and Cilan will be making the trip.

Curious if Ash will be getting another design overhaul.
