Save up? Sell some other stuff?

Okay, I was wondering that myself also. Though I did just get back from seeing the Free! movie in a theater. First time in one in over a year, and damn, I forgot how expensive food is in them!

@tonymack21 ah okay thanks.

And really that's almost always the case. Sometimes it's blatantly different but usually it's small things that can completely change the tone of some scenes. I always recommend subs unless you are dyslexic or something. An interesting thing to do can be watching the dub and having subtitles on. Really shows the differences.

@dunno001 No kidding. Gotta eat before hand or sneak something in lol.

Ah, yes, the difference between dubs and subs. I'm mostly in the sub camp, but I will always recommend one dub: Nerima Daikon Brothers. The Japanese track seems so flat in comparison.

Ghost Stories is 100% better dubbed as well. The actual plot of the show is pretty boring, the dub turns it into total comedic nonsense.

The Ghibli dubs are at least of good va quality. A lot of really early dubs were just bad. The biggest issue now (besides context/tone differences) is the va pool for anime is so small. Odds are even if you pick two anime at random dubbed recently you are going to hear the same vas.

I think I remember ADV talking about all the freedom they had with that show, partially because of how poorly it did in Japan.

I'm looking forward to the Ghibli series that will be happening at my (not really) local theater. I'm only able to go on a dub night (Mondays are for subs), but yes, like you say, they're decent ones. And the VA problem... yeah... that's what happens when the 2 largest companies are in Texas. Viz will sometimes use a studio in CA or Vancouver, but otherwise...

ive seen some stuff talking about how Funimation/Viz and others back in the early days of the anime explosion like with toonami/adult swim in the states having a lot of the same voices and why. Ichigo was every protag on every show lol. ive gotten to where im almost exclusively sub with original japanese, it just feels more proper, i even select it in games now when its an option. i did like cowboy bebop's dub, but that was also my first exposure to it back in the toonami days. same with bleach but i later preferred the subs there, and naruto, the dub is nausea inducing, its the worst ive ever heard. its sooo bad. AoT's dub isnt totally revolting, my son isnt ready for subs so i rewatched it in english with him, its his new fav show.

and lets all keep the memories of 4kids repressed where it belongs.

I'm actually one of those who didn't like Bebop's dub; I found it grating to the ears. The best old dub I can think of was Ranma, reportedly, even Takahashi liked it. I'll still stick to subs most of the time, though.

And what is this "4Kids" you talk of...? raspberry
