    America has to many "moral" standards to help when it comes to anime. Their form of anime can never be as "dark & twisted" as Japan. There is too many "religious" influences in America to have it done right. There would be protests and "rights" marches just because of how we "show" anime. Couple years ago we finally got the AN channel. But, that is blocked due to how the "religious" morals are for that TV company. So, for instants with Bright House, there is the "on demand" which allows the company to "choose" what people will see..

    In shortness.. MOST parents are not parents in the US, and due to that... We have all this "videogame" problems in the US.. So, to add "anime" and what it brings to the list.... It wouldn't work.


    Now, would I love to see companies grow in work in the US... Yes.. But, Marvel has shown that even if you got the "Japanese" art style down... Voice casting SUCKSSSSS..

    Lol.... At times I do wish I was in a place to which it wasn't a "religious" type control... It's not that I don't believe, or care if one does or doesn't... I just feel that due to how America is brought up, coming from England, and so forth... Anime can't work in a "building block" like it can in Japan... Even if LA is owned by them... lol


    Tomorrow I'll have to watch Last Exile, and Bleach.. I've been caught up with Batman: AC... :roll:


    You got 302 posts to go Dj ;)

    That many yet??
    Just watched deadman ova, no shiro, no good...
    Mirai nikki, yandere girl just got even more yandere and now with a dark secret...
    Edit: Its ironic, after badmouthing american dubs, i got caught off guard with DBZ movie 7 android 13 dubbed by funi, and it was horrible, but i put up with it and watched the entire movie...
    I think i had better dbz episodes than the movie...

    i despise the DBZ english dub, specially what they done to Vegeta, he sounded like a random street thug instead of being a more aristocratic arrogant prince.

    lol.. His voice was the only one that I thought was done "all right".. :roll:


    Now, for anime that is out now..


    Last Exile Fam: With the second Episode out, I can say that I feel the same as I did watching the first series.. Drawn into the world, and feeling for them as if I was there.. I really think the story is well done..

    Guilty Crown: It's shaping to be good. I can't say til at lease half way into it..


    Bleach:.... Wow... He's doing it.. I knew he wouldn't be able to stand by...

    hehe i guess we have different preference then, the original VA of Vegeta, Frieza and Cell (the villains mostly) are well done in Japanese imo (Specially Cell hehe, Norio Wakamoto ftw!)

    English dubs are also notorious for changing and adding random dialogues that is not part of the original dub. Even apparent on games:
    semi ot: xenoblade jap dub with english sub (cell and vegeta are there btw hehe)

    Yeah. I liked DB universe in Subs over Dubs... Because of the voice acting.. Everyone has their own feel on voices.. Which is good.. That's why I don't sing anymore. :roll:

    The new Last Exile took a turn to the worse. WHY HELLO THERE NAZIS! WHY HELLO THERE "REBUILD A NEW WORLD"! WHY HELLO THERE THE OTHER SIDE MUST SUFFER FIRST! WHY HELLO THERE THE NAZIS MUST HAVE THE UPPER HAND IN THE EARLY STAGES! WHY HELLO THERE THE OTHER SIDE, AFTER MUCH PAIN AND HARDSHIP, WOULD TURN THE TIDE!

    Proof of how "old" Chobits is already: I first got to watch the whole series in Youtube; at that time I was also watching SEED and SEED Destiny there. :laugh:

    They were yet to be bought by Google then.


    Being made by CLAMP was the primary "attraction" for me. Albeit I haven't really watched the whole Cardcaptor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth series, but I liked them. LOL


    And I just love the OP song:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH8AXBIxfWY


    It was aired on Animax too, but we don't have cable, so there. Back then it was only Vandread that I was watching on Animax at my sister's house.

    Had no clue it was like a master peice. I'm on ep 11 and my god what a deep story I love the struggle between AI and human, emotion and feelings, understanding. Not to mention how she is being communicated through via the book.
