And who's to say it sounds better in Japanese?

In all likelihood it probably doesn't, but if I can't understand the language and am too busy reading the subs I'm much less likely to notice if it's bad unless it's Cookie★ levels of blatantly horrible.

This is a good dub.

Christ... maybe it wouldn't sound so bad to me if I hadn't heard the Japanese dub first.

Bad? Naw man, this is awesome! :D

I love when the English VAs throw their own quips in the script. Lets me appreciate how passionate they are.

Yeah I like both the dub and the sub in that case. Not a big fan of the show though

What, you don't like watching elementary schoolers go through fits of sexual ecstasy? :P



Heh. Aside from that though, I hear the show's pretty alright. It helps that Kobayshi's one of the coolest gals you'll ever meet.

Started on subs and just kind of stayed in the habit. Though I actually prefer Higurashi's dub, I think that's because it's easier for me to get scared when I don't have to read subtitles.

This is turning out to be one of the best dubs I've ever heard. Leah Clark sounds exactly how I'd imagine Kobayashi in real life, especially whilst drunk off her ass.

Too bad i can probably understand more japanese than what i can decipher from kobayashi in that dub. Sure it's good but i'd need subs to understand it.

This show might've faded somewhat in my eye, but the English dub is still to die for.

Depends on the anime. Ive seen dubs that were awful and subbed that was even worse

Thank you to all staff of lewd for keeping up with such an amazing site.

I have watched a dubbed anime only once because I couldn’t stand it... Guess that explains it!

Bahahahaha, how was the first English dub of Cardcaptor Sakura (ahem, sorry, CardCaptors) this horrendously bad? Like, granted, the VAs were probably paid pennies, but for Pete's sake Sakura sounds older than me. >.<

The hit-and-miss musical score aside, what's interesting to me is how they splice out important plot elements just to make the show even more kid-friendly. This was from the "Jelly Donuts" era of dubbing, and it shows, but it's not like kids never develop an unattainable crush on an older friend. Or, y'know, stumbled across Japanese in some capacity.



Compared with the newer version, there really isn't any contest: https://youtu.be/wIFDyKN_Nqo?t=552
