Regarding: The Future Dubs Issue
Submitted: June 25th, 2003
Firstly, I'd like to say that Sailor Moon's dub was just fine. S and Super S were the more superiorly (is that even a word) dub than Classic and R. Rurouni Kenshin's not all that horrible either. I personally like the sub. And we can ALL agree Card Captor Sakura went to hell with Nelvana.
In any case, we're talking about RIGHT STUF dubbing the series. The series that dubbed my favorite series, Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou/His and Her Circumstances (Kare-Kano)!!! I mean, I love the dub 25 times better than the sub, because the voices don't fit.
Just sit down and listen to Yukino's dub voice and Yukino's sub voice (she's the "kanojo" of the title) and you'll see that Atsuko Enomoto didn't really come close to matching Yukino's spunky, outgoing personality, like Veronica Taylor did. But that's my opinion.
Anyway, I have high faith that they (Right Stuf) will do a really good job with the dub.
As for the music...I'd hate not hear Kotani Kinya's voice for the songs, so I really don't know how Right Stuf will pull this off. I did find Chance Pop Session interesting in how they left the Japanese singers alone. It gives it a unique taste.
They did translate and change a song in Kare-Kano into English and I think they did very well. But...since half of us have watched Gravi via fansubs and have downloaded the music, it would be weird. I'm not going to argue there.
We'll see how it turns out though.
In conclusion, I just think that you shouldn't put down dubs before you watch them. Maybe, they'll have an issue of Newtype USA with a promotional Gravitation DVD really soon and then we can judge. But, right now, let's stay unbiased about it.
