There's something really funny about this edit, but it wasn't in the show itself, but in the ad. On Global (canadian station for those wondering wtf that is), SM was advertised for a long while with Queen Metalia as the lead villain along side Queen Beryl... oh, sorry, there wasn't 2 Queens, Metalia was EMPRESS Metalia. But yeah, so this is mentioned, in plain english, on the commercial airwaves, yet never appears in the dub of the series itself, only referred to by Beryl as My Master or something. O~dd.

No, when you really love something, that something teaches you the language :P :lol: (note: joke).

Metropolis got a dub theatrical release in the U.S.? Heh, here in Toronto it was theatrically run subbed... although only one theatre in downtown (the most expensive of the bunch too -.-) was playing it at all. Bloody exclusive engagement thingies.

I saw Metropolis subbed in theaters. It was playing at the MANN Chinese Theater in HollyWood and when I when I went it was nearly sold out. Only time ive ever seen an anime in theaters with the theater actually full.

Yup. Gotta hate voice changes. Happens all the time. I found that the voices that I liked the best were the ones during the Cell games, right before Gohan went SSJ2. Around after he went SSJ2, the voices changed again. The weird thing was that almost everyone sounded like another character from another show. Eg: Teen Gohan = Quatra (Gundam Wing), Goku = Vaughn (Escaflowne), Cell = Jeckal (Mummies Alive), Pikkon = Milliardo (Gundam Wing) and so on... But downloading from the internet, I saw that Cartoon Network showed the episodes after that, in the same and regular voice, so no voice change.

:oops: Sorry... I'm a little off the Sailor Moon topic. But I just had to make that point.

Actually, if you hadn't noticed, those voices in the YTV version of DBZ were the original voices from teh first two seasons of DBZ. Well, some of teh voices anyways. The person who did Pikkon's voice is Brian Drummond, who was the first to voice Vegeta. Now, he is back in the other dub version. Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien, Ox King, Chi Chi, Krillin all have their original dub voices as well in the YTV version.

I actually like Darien. :p

Some other really bad dubs are Cowboy Bebop (Well, Vicious is great, but Spike & Jett are the worst acting I've ever heard) and 3x3 Eyes.

The voices do NOT fit, Spike's VA is soulless and he isn't supposed to sound like that, and I won't even go into how bad Jett's VA screws it up. Spike's VA was good in The Big O, but until he could learn to range he should of stayed the hell away from CB.

i see spike's as being more of a calm, cool attitude... he has plenty of soul, but no need to show it.

Ryoko's Japanese voice is divine! :)


As for the Tenchi OVA dub, I would vote it as being the best dub ever done, for sure. The only voice I don't like is Noboyuki.

You say that after saying the Tenchi dub is good???

Man, don't ever be a voice director... PLEASE!

The Tenchi Dub is one of the worst I know of...

and the Cowboy Bebop dub is one of the only dubs I like (and this from a person who isn't much into dubs). It is the ONLY dub I know where I actually prefer the dub over the sub (and I never say that about any other title... I know a few dubs I like as much as the Japanese). In fact, many of the industry voice directors I know are equally impressed with how good the Cowboty Bebop dub is.

Sheesh!
