I would think anyone my age would have said Dragonball Z or Gundam Wing.

The swedish guy said DB.
I would have said Candy Candy or Haha wo Tazunete Sanzenri (aka Marco) and that would have BLOWN THEIR MINDS AWAY (like it generally does to japanese people i tell i've seen these gems)

The correct answer for an American is Sailor Moon.  In fact this is the answer everyone should give.

Shit, yeah. I'm just so used to DBZ fanboys EVERYWHERE and Gundam Wing was like this cool thing that I could not watch because I did not have cable and now that I can watch GW I still have not watched it.

Tranzor-Z (Mazinger-Z) was the first anime I remember seeing.

"But it's an anime classic!" someone, somewhere might possibly exclaim.

You know, like Saint Seiya. :puke:

Come on. Figuratively, maybe.

Next somebody's gonna try to say Voltron's an anime classic. :nono:

Somebody's is a contraction of somebody and is. Voltron's is a contraction of Voltron and is. Ah love c-c-c-contractions~~~!!!

If you ever wondered why no one in the U.S. would do Rose of Versailles, the point is moot.

From the sound of it, they're not planning a dub of the series...just a sub and pub job. I'll catch the stream of the first few eps and see how it goes.

I actually watch far more subtitled stuff than anything else these days.

Not by choice, though. Japanese still sounds like a hot mess of spastic gibberish to me.

Not all dubs are bad, but many are less than good.

Gravity Falls.

It's about a brother and sister who are sent away to live with their weird uncle, then all these bizarre occurrences start going down around them.

Truly, a great anime, and the dub is impeccable.

I think the dubs in english are the worst. They lack the profoundity that the japanese have. Like the voice actor of Ranma, in japanese his voice is amaaaaazing and his voice has a lots of ups and downs etc etc but in english is zero.
I think the only time when I've liked more the dubbed voice than the original has been with Goku. The man is what, thirty something by the end of DBZ and still talking like a little girl


edit: i was just watching tv and found out this year is Versailles no bara 40th anniversary! i was wondering why there were many posters of the series coming up all over the place and subways. Omg and they have an EXPO AND IM SO GOING. Its funny tho, they showed the expo place in the news and 90% of the people there were old women lol

Well, of course, because all dubs are the same!

On a serious note, I actually tend to agree with you: there's a lot of dubbed anime that is just marginal. But it's nowhere near as bad as it once was..."marginal" is a far cry from the word "embarrassing", which is what I'd use for a large part of the history of American localization efforts. There's a lot of decent ones, and not a few pretty good ones. Granted, I'm prejudiced, but so's everybody else. A lot of it simply depends on which one was heard first.

That said, I would disagree that such programs as Cowboy Bebop (probably the most commonly cited example), FLCL, Hellsing, Black Lagoon, and the 2 Ghost in the Shell TV series have English dubs that are in any way (accuracy, tone, flow, emotion, etc.) inferior to the Japanese versions. Having watched both versions of each series fairly extensively (some with differently-sourced sub scripts), I feel qualified to say that it's purely a matter of preference, and mine has already been made clear.

Why wouldn't they?  That shit was dubbed in French decades ago.

They probably thought it would be too difficult for American audiences, just like Super Mario Bros Two.

Super Mario Bros. 2 is considerably more difficult than the first game and while it's not impossible (I have finished it) it is hard by both North American and Japanese standards.  Hard enough to not be that fun.

My favorite part to hate on in that game was the jumping off a platform only to get driven back by a sudden wind and fall into a pit. No rhyme or reason, it's just, hey, better watch that wind next time. I always hated the weak gameplay defined by losing a life to see what kills you only to avoid it the next time.

Oddly, the SMB2 game we got is still my favorite Mario game.
