It's the cutest anime ever and I can't stop coming back to it. (I can't find anything new I wanna watch either...)

It's so great! I really wish there was a dubbed season 2.

Just finished Attack on Titan Season 1. I'm glad TFS decided to abridge a episode otherwise I would have never discovered it. Anyway, can someone please explain what Annie's "bet" was and Armin's "bet". Those are the only two details I don't get.

Started reading UQ holder it's so awesome it's about a group of people who are immortal but they all have different forms of immortality. It's pretty cool, but it's basically the sequel to Negima so you'd have to read that to understand some things but it can still stand on its own.

As you may have guessed from my absense, I missed all of Toonami again...

It was for a good reason this time though. My friend came over, and since he's not into anime (other than DBZ), we spent all night watching stuff on Netflix.

I love the subbed.
The dubbed isn't as funny >_<.
The subbed has so many jokes that the dub just couldn't add (Obviously cause most were language related jokes.) which makes me sad.

While originally Ika Musume season 2 dubbed was suppose to come out last year Media Blaster canned it and doesn't plan on releasing it anymore. The only way it'll ever get dubbed now is if someone else acquires the license from them or wait until it expires and then someone else picks it up. Media Blaster has sat on a lot of series that never end up getting released and just eventually lose the license for it.

The sub is much more enjoyable but something about the dub squid puns has it's charm on me. My only gripe really with the dub is that they translated Ika Musume's name to Squid Girl when that is suppose to be her name it's not meant to be translated. Tho it wouldn't be the first time Sentai/ADV did this as they before translated Ahiru's name from Princess Tutu to Duck.

In a desperate attempt to help my beloved little fan community, I'm here to say you should totally try the first few (up to episode 11 is ideal) episodes of Detective Conan if you are into murder mysteries in any way at all. Or just watch episode 11, because I swear every 3rd person got into the series because of how much they loved that case.

and even as a dub fan, subbed is way better for this series for the record.

That is not Bubblegum Crisis or Garvey's Wing, therefor you are wrong.

Seriously, it's not that bad. The acting's wooden and the voices don't fit the characters, but it's still better than some of the worst out there. Their voices aren't explicitly annoying, they're showing some emotion, and they aren't making a ton of amatuer mistakes. The only problem is it sounds like they're reading a script with not much direction. For an early dub, I'd say it's about or maybe a little below par for the course.

EDIT: Okay, after watching it again, yeah, it sounds like they have maybe 3 actors doing the whole show. That's bad, but again, I've heard worse, and one of them was at least trying to make it seem less obvious.

I don't think it's as bad as Devilman: The Birth's English dub:

Warning, very NSFW.
Seems like for some reason in the English dub they added a ton of unnecessary cursing. Personally I think it makes it funnier, but I'm just warning.

@CaptainSquid back in the 80's nearly all Western cartoons were for kids, so localisers had a hard time making sure that the adult anime would end up in the hands of only adults. This tended to cause localised works to be way, way more explicit than the source material. Naturally this means they're great to laugh at!

Also, I wonder why anyone uses the echoing scream pan like in the last scene of that clip. I still can't stop laughing when I hear Dante yell "I should have been the one to fill your dark soul with liiiiiiiiiiight! (liiiiiiiiiiight!) (liiiiiiiiiiight!) (liiiiiiiiiiight!)"

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

The first episode of This Ugly Yet Beautiful World was...um...kinda interesting. No idea what to think of this yet.

Just hit the final stretch if six episodes of Star Blazers. Its really one of my favorite anime now and in many regards reminds me a lot of the original Star Trek. For early anime I find the subject matter pretty serious and the serial format are pretty suprsing. I had actually forgotten that Avatar had been diagnosed with radiation poisoning, than boom a few episodes later it comes back.

While its not star trek levels I do like how the Pueadi science if the show while Fantastical is still grounded somewhat in reality. The explanation for the Wave Motion Engine and Gina and why it can't be used as a Lazy way to always win the day is refreshing in days of dues ex machina.

Yeah, Yamato 2199 holds to that, too, and that's one of the reasons why its one of my favorite Sci-fi shows in years. Nothing ever feels all that farfetch'd and everything just kinda seems to come together one way or another. I love it.
