Thought it was about time we had our own anime thread, now I'm getting addicted to it I feel we need a dedicated area to go anime mad. Maybe we will find some more anime fans on here as well .... ANYBODY? Say hello!!!!!
Uurgh, not dubbed!
Great to have this, though, as long as we can choose the original Japanese soundtrack and subtitles.
To see what I mean, compare Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli creation ’Spirited Away’ in the original Japanese, with the (quite well-done) Pixar English dub.
It’s good, and brings the movie to a lot of people who won’t watch subtitles, but the original spirit is not quite there.
Thanks @Anonymous User don’t really have time to watch any anime at the moment, they do require a big chunk, it’s good to know they are waiting for me there when I can though!
I”m sure @caseyb1993 will be delighted with this news, she’s a 24/7 anime devouring machine!
Yeah the dub for Spirited Away isn't a masterpiece but a fun fact for you Andy is the girl who voices the lead character (dub version) was the creepy girl from The Ring (the US version). 😮
I'm waiting for them to drop InuYasha which was my second anime. Was supposed to drop today but now it's Friday. 😠
i suppose they are releasing the dubs to entice new viewers who don't like subtitled shows.
@caseyb1993 Excellent fact, any excuse to drop a scary picture on the forum at Halloween time!
Less interesting fact ... the JHorror version Ringu is way more scary than that US rip-off, but I thought the US Samara was better!
@Andy Never thought I would read that last sentence from you 😂
