Like with 2.0 I'm interested in what the english dub staff do with certain scenes and lines.

I'm particularly looking forward to Tiff and Trina playing off each other as Asuka and Mari.

BTW does anyone know if any of the dub actors/staff have seen 3.0 yet?

You know I thought this would be the first time I really didn't give a damn about the Dub at all, but just yesterday I was thinking about how Tiffany Grant would handle the new Asuka and then I started looking forward to it.

I wish they would make an option on the DVD for "3.TG" and have all the original Japanese in there except with Asuka as Grant. lol

Don't misunderstand, I love Yuko Miyamura, but Grants' version is the Asuka I originally fell in love with.

As I originally fell in love with Eva through the dubs of the series and EoE when they first came out many long years ago, I was suprised by how much I disliked the dub of 1.11 when I finally got ahold of the NA release. In between then and 1.11 I became a sub purist without even realizing it. :huh:

Nonetheless, I will still buy the NA of 3.33 as soon as it comes out, and will watch with the dub at least once to hear what they make of of some of the script, and you gotta admit the commentary tracks are ALWAYS interesting from that crew.

I think you can blame Funimation for some of that. Besides having bad voice directors, who think they are directing for Loony Tunes cartoons, they also usually only hire people in the Denton County area.

With Eva they got a lot of the original cast, so I think the blame falls mostly on the Directors.

But yeah, I'm also a sub snob now too so I might just be jaded.

Can't say as though I'm particularly looking forward to any of the actors for 3.0's NERV staff (being only Gendo and Fuyutsuki at this point) trying to sound older than they really are. John Swasey's voice as Gendo sounds less gruff and gritty than Fumihiko Tachiki's, so it might not translate well into a character who's supposed to be 14 years older than before.

I have no real view on one set of voice actors over another; and dub or sub, both are translations with all the problems they bring. But I will be pleased to be able to watch the visuals properly without having to tear my eyes away all the time to read the subs - who knows what subtleties I miss doing that (well, reading this forum points out some of them, of course)?

So, it's dubs all the way for me, if available.

I never understood the love of Tiffany Grant, she sounds awful....
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

I think its 1) she really gives her all 2) she's a big fan of the show/Asuka herself, you're always going to get the fans on your side if you cosplay as the character and have loads of their merchandise at home. I'm not saying this is some calculated ploy or anything, just that sort of thing is always going to make you a fan favourite. Just like Spike with his 'wacky crazy guy' thing.

OT: I hope they give J Michael Tatum something to do in 3.0 - he did a good job of Kaji and if youve seen that 2.22 panel from Anime Boston you'll know he's a big Eva fan and really into the show. Maybe they'll give him one of the Will-E staff to do.

I'm also interested how Alison Keith-Shipp is going to do Evil Space Captain Misato.

It will certainly be interesting to see, in a way, someone else's interpretation of it/another alternate translation.

But this will be a *tough* job, not only because Ogata absolutely outperformed herself,leaving some positively humongous shoes to fill, but because some characters, because of their rather controversal actions, (esp. Shinji and Misato) need to be *ABSOLUTELY NAILED*.
Make Misato too icy and she'll come off as ireedeemable; Make her too soft, and no one will understand why Shinji stormed off the Wunder - not to speak of Shinji himself....

I'll be happy when I can follow the story and focus on reading and understanding the visual language of the film without the distraction of reading the script.

Tiffany Grant is going to butcher Asuka, though, I'm sure.

As I prefer to hear media in my first language, yes. I'm interested in hearing how Jerry Jewell handles Kaworu for this film.
