Worst Dub Voice?

Post by Mariya » Wed 10.05.2005 3:15 pm

Yeah... just as the title says. Who's got the worst dub voice in your opinion?

Has anyone heard Sanji's dub voice from One Piece? Good Lord. :@ It is the most sickening dub voice ever!

I cannot watch the dub without muting the TV everytime he comes on screen. Thats how horrible it is.

Other dubbed voices I hate would probably be the whole cast for Weiss Kreuz. Their Japanese voices are so beautifully done by Koyasu Takehito-san and his crew, and theres absolutely no passion put into the dubbed voices. The actors didn't even try to sound Asian x.x pure American accent. :o

Worst dub ever: 宇宙快速船 Invasion of the Neptune Men. It's hilarious. I have the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version. The kids are done by adults who are trying to sound like kids. They all sound like Flinstone Phone voices

The worst dub? I think it owuld either be.... Corrector Yui... (omgosh... have you heard the voice actors? it just makes me wanna puke! And the translation!!??? -shudder- ) Or Mew Mew Power (horrible horrible).... I happen to loooovvveee Tokyo Mew Mew.. the subbed version and the manga.... and they changed all the names for the dub.. and cut so many scenes! Plus they gave everyone the worst possible voices!!!! And my favorite character Kish/Kisshu... ugg... his voice... sounds like... a girls..... :@

Worst voice acting goes to Kintaku in Howl's moving castle. Stupid bastard couldn't emote if you punched him in the gullet. Turned a movie that should have been great into a big bunch of nothing. How were the English voices? Any better?

So is Howl's Moving Castle a good watch? Everyone seems to relate it to Spirited Away. I myself did not enjoy that movie much; couldn't see what was so special.

Hehe.. I won't ask any further on that particular voice. :D

Actually...I thought Seto's was alright. Considering they gave Jou a Boston accent.

A BOSTON accent, I ask. He's Japanese....:(

I don't remember too clearly, but there was a character in Bruce Lee's Fist Of Fury who I believe was the Japanese ambassador, but in the dub he had a thick Bronx accent!

I know it's not a Japanese movie, but seeing as it's a Japanese character, it just qualifies as relevant!

Jin's character on AS's Samurai Champloo is terrible! The Japanese version is great, but the English dub is awful.

Let me see a recent example of a bad dub. Cartoon network's dub. I never liked Krillin's (Dragon ball), and Naruto, my GOD!! that one is a heart-breaker. Cartoon Network always ends up killing anime as we know it. I like all the voices so far except Naruto's I mean they pronounce it Na- rroo - tou (English pronounctiation) they could have kept it with the original pronouctiation and it would have still sounded pretty good. and Naruto's voice sounds like a girl. I swear when Rock Lee appears he best have some good dubbing

That's the problem with most dubs. It isn't the acting that is the problem usually but the casting. Spastic tough guy voices become wimpy nerd guy (naruto). Etc. I especially hate it when a tough macho guy becomes effeminate and gay in the english casting.

So much of the character comes from the tone of voice and it can be hard to appreciate a good voice actor that was just cast in the wrong part, I spend much of the episodes cringing.

I also don't see why they aren't even trying to pronounce the names right. I thought the industry was refraining from Americanizing new words and especially character names, but NO. Kakashi's name has been particuarly butchered.

I don't watch movies/TV dubbed if I have a choice (and usually I do). It never sounds right and it just annoys me.
I watched an episode of 90210 in Japanese and it was terrible. I did realize that I always hear the same woman in every show dubbed into Japanese. Her voice is annoying and it never fits the character properly. Plus, hearing her in all the shows confuses me (tons of different looking people but all the same voice, aaa).
