Has anyone heard Sanji's dub voice from One Piece? Good Lord. :@ It is the most sickening dub voice ever! >.< Voice Actor = Black. Sanji = Pure Japanese. Wheres the link? :(
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
I hate to come out of nowhere but
How ignorant of you. You act as if Japanese people can't have that kind of accent, Races aren't limited to a certain sound. You don't act like the previous actor you act as if you are the character. How do you even know if Sanji is Asian? I'm not a fan of Onepiece, or anime in general, but I can't imagine a character yelling out his race. Why wouldn't they have pure american accents? It's aimed an American audience.


i do agree with you. it was rude of Mariya to say that. and it can offend people on tjp who have black skin too.

I usually don't mind dubs, but Naruto's voice is so annoying my mom makes me shut off the show. Shino's voice sounds like it went up twenty octives from the Japanese version too, otherwise I don't care.


lmfao. Naruto sounds like he smokes, doesn't he?

Hmmm. I fail to see what the the voice actor being black has to do with the dub being so bad. That is to say that all black voice actors are bad? Obviously when being dubbed for an American audience there is usually no connection to the originial actor being Japanese. So being black is much more far off than the actor being white in regards to the Japanese actor. I'm highly offended.

Black actors actors can have many different voices and many different acting styles and techniques. Wow & this is Admin speaking.

If this particular actor sucked, so be it. But pls, don't make it about race. Pfft!

Two words, Angel Sanctuary. The voice acting is bad to the point that I don't know if the anime would have even been any better without irksome voices. There is one character who you expect at every moment to yell "I choose you pikachu!" That isn't even the worst part either, when I switched the track to japanese, it sounded just as bad! It may just be me but Angel Sanctuary has the worst voice acting ever!
There are no dumb questions, therefore, they are all of equal stupidity.

who has a problem with black voice actors? lol but I think mariya was trying to say that the voice actor sounded what is considered "black" or talking "ghetto." I think it can be forgiven.

On another note: adv films actually I believe did a good dub for Ghost Stories(学校の怪談(かいだん)). I found a youtube vid to explain

Ok so the two dub voices i really don't like are:

Orochimaru's- Just because his laugh isn't as cool as it is in the Japanese version. The voice..eh...it's pretty good i guess, but the laugh...IT'S NOT THE SAME!!! (cry)

And then Ginta from Marchen Awakens Romance.
What a shame... it just doesn't sound right... so sad...

It isnt because he is black is it because the voice actor has a bit of a jamaican accent and tries to make sanji talk with an italian accent.

I think you would have to hear it to believe it, a jamaican accent with a nasal sounding italian accent. Dont know how else to describe it.

How about video games? Ever hear the English voice acting in the game "Legend of Dragoon"? Did it not make your eyes bleed?

Other than that... I may have to say... Bleach. Now, I haven't seen much Bleach, but I enjoy it! I was forcing my roomate to watch several the other evening - later that night, she excitedly informed me that Cartoon Network was showing the very same episode we'd left off on. As I leapt over the couch in slow motion yelling "Noooooooo!" she put it on.

If it weren't for Melissa's excellent reflexes and yelp of pain, I might've been subjected to more bad acting; as it stands I'm lucky enough to only have suffered Ichigo and Rukia. That's enough, I think. I'm soooo afraid of what they did to my favorite characters after that. So afraid.

I would say that the worst english dub i've ever heard was the character Naruto. It made me hate the whole anime.

Videogame voices are never good.

One good english dub (at least that's what I liked) was the voice of Spike Spiegel in Cowboy Bebop voiced by Steven Blum.
And I really like the english dub of Dawn (Hikari) in the American version of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. I think she's played by Emilyn Mornelli.

I remember I also liked what they did with cowboy bebop on adult swim. Trigun had a good voice cast too. Another one that comes to mind is the FF advent children dvd, the dubbed voices were surprisingly close to the japanese as well.

you said just what I was about it. FFVII was really good. (I guess you can consider it an anime) However I only have the Japanese version, but I've heard the dub voices they used and it was really tight.
I guess you just gotta find the good dubbed anime. They're the best when the voice is really unique (like Steven Blum) and it fits the personality of the character. Then you have the Naruto dubs. A voice so bad that it can single handedly ruin an anime for you.

If I have the choice I usually just watch my DVDs with subtitles...except when there's other people or I'm distracted by something. You get a better translation with them anyway.
