Re: Never seen Evangelion before - Dub or Sub?

I don't necessarily disagree (most of them have indeed gotten worse the more times I've heard them), but like it or not that is the reputation they have. Together with Cowboy Bebop (the dub of which I haven't heard), the Ghibli dubs are almost always given the okay by both sides of the sub vs. dub ...

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

I am fairly certain Anno never read Hegel. He admits straight-up he never read Kierkegaard.

It is possible to absorb a lot of ideas, even fairly abstract or complex ones, via cultural osmosis. Especially when those ideas come from some of the most influential thinkers of the past half-millennium.

Ghibli dub sort of reputation PROTIP: Ghibli dubs are not actually all that incredible, they just have an aura of "respectability" because Disney throws celebrity screen actors you've heard of (as opposed to trained voice actors you haven't) into the booth to phone in the dialogue. Someti...

Re: How many tons did Sahaquiel weight?

This may surprise you, but the answer to this question is "zero"! "Sahaquiel" is a fictional character from the Japanese animation ("Japanimation") series Neon Genesis Evangelion, created by a man named Hideaki Anno and

Re: Never seen Evangelion before - Dub or Sub?

How about this; While in the Sea of LCL scene of Episode 26', Shinji and Rei have a dialogue about how, if Shinji were to stop Third Impact and return people to their individual state, the walls of their hearts would close off and they would feel pain once more. In the subs, Shinji goes ahead w...

Re: Never seen Evangelion before - Dub or Sub?

If you get enjoyment out of slightly hammy 90s dubs like Ranma 1/2 or anything by Manga UK, Eva 's is one of the best; it has a ton of character, and it gets across most of the important points from the original just fine. (It was overseen by Gainax, so.) If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, ...

Re: Ghostbusters Reboot

Looks pretty atrocious to me; I'm actually surprised at the number of people who think otherwise. The all-female casting thing is pretty much just a politically provocative smokescreen for the fact that this is yet another completely gratuitous, senseless, money-grubbing reboot of a beloved 80s film...

Re: Cowboy Bebop

I've yet to see a definitive source on Watanabe calling the dub "superior". It's good but not perfect. Steve Blum can sound cool like whoa but struggles to give Spike emotional depth, and Wendee Lee is Wendee Lee. No shame in switching to the Japanese version with Yamadera (the champion &q...

He gave us all the answers he feels we need . Beyond that, he's made it clear that it's for us to make up our own minds. And he did so by practically coming right out and saying, "THIS STUFF IS REALLY NOT THAT IMPORTANT" Ritsuko's muted line in EoE is about as overt and confrontational an...

Re: A remake or a sequel?

I think I'm the last person I know who thinks the time loop/sequel theory is too dumb to be true. Pointed allusions to the original series abound, but most people seem to think it's beyond the realm of possibility that the Rebuilds are making a metafictional commentary on their own status as a recur...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

Did anyone here ever bother to do an in-depth comparison on how the Official Khara Subs stack up against various fansubs or overseas releases? Or for that matter Funimation's own theatrical subs? (Which are curiously included on the disc, though the theatrical dub is not)
