Barely? BARELY?? They're REALLY fucking annoying. :evil:

I'm just glad that when I saw it at Katsucon (pre-release master) it didn't have those sound effects in it. I was actually able to enjoy it.

I don't understand how a few minor sound effects can ruin your enjoyment of a movie. I agree that she shouldn't have added any, but seriously people, get over it. It's not a big deal.

Oh, it only ruins it if you watch it in English. That's why I never bother with dubs (and why I hate watching anime on TV).

It would be nice if they fixed that line Misato has in EoE about Adam being born from Lilith. I went out of my mind trying to figure that shit out, only to be told that it was mistranslated! That's the kind of thing you go back and change. It's a lot more useful than making a guy's splattering brains sound like a massive ass-sneeze.

It didn't sound like a sneeze to me. You must have a serious problem if your sneezes sound like that. :lol:

I've watched the movie in Japanese and English and really I fail to see how one small dialogue addition and a few minor sound effects detract from the movie at all. I'll bet you 10 bucks that if you got someone who hadn't seen the movie before and had them watch the Japanese version and then the English version, they wouldn't even notice the blood splattering noise.

It's not about improvement or declination. It's just overstepping your bounds. Your job is to spill out lines translated from the motion picture. If you want to add things, do it in your commentary.

And I said massive ass-sneeze, not massive-ass sneeze. I meant fart. It sounds like a big, nasty, wet fart.

Once again, I agree with you. I just think you're overreacting to something that really isn't that big of a deal.

And it does kinda sound like a fart. :lol:

Evangelion is actually one of the very few (the others being FLCL Abenobashi, Ghost in the Shell, and Cowboy Bebop) anime I prefer to watch in english.
The voices are just so dead on, and in my humble opinion, more memorable.

The offending "splatter" sound effect they added anoys me a little, but only because I recognize it from my Macintosh painting progam.
I'm serious, you click on the little paint Icon and you hear that very sound!

Seriously though, is that enough to ruin the entire experience?
Of course not! They did a great job.
I asked "And where would you take me?"
At this the beast laughed, tears made of my mother's blood leaked from his eyes.

"Then I will take you to every place you've already been, and you will hate that also."

Um.. you liked the Ghost in the Shell dub? I thought that those voice actors were HORRIBLE. Luckily I decided to watch it subbed so I still like the movie.

Let's not turn this into a dub vs. sub thread. It's already way off topic.

You can buy them at just about any video store now (BestBuy=$25.00)
They are worth it. Except if you own the perfect collection, then only get them if you have the extra cash.

Best of all they are SHINY

GODDAMN YOU, IMAGE ANIME, WHEN THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO GET YOUR DAMN SHIPMENT? For dog's sake, it's been a month, and it's too late to cancel. I go to Best Buy, and there it is... sitting on the shelf... mocking me... saying, "You should have used Eva Monkey's link."

Oh, I'm sick of it already.

And yeah, the Ghost in the Shell dubs sucked ass. It was like hearing a group of people read their grocery lists. I've never wanted to turn something off so fast in my life. Lucky is was a DVD.

I guess I should have left a little disclaimer.
Unlike the other anime I mentioned the Ghost in the Shell dub does really suck. But somehow, with almost everybody in the movie being cyborgs, robots, conmputer programs, and politicans, the dead pan voices just seemed to fit.

Maybe I watched Blade Runner a few to many times.

At any rate, yeah, I'd use Eva monkey's link unless you want to wait half a year or so and pick them up used or "like new" for half (or a third) of the SRP.
I asked "And where would you take me?"
At this the beast laughed, tears made of my mother's blood leaked from his eyes.
"I will take you to every place you never wanted to be, and you will hate it."
"Then I will take you to every place you've already been, and you will hate that also."
