Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

No, they are the same. There's nothing superficial about it, it's just one vocal track or another. There is no meaningful difference beyond the quality of the performances. If you want to critique those performances, go nuts; I'm with you most of the time when you say the original Japanese is super...

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

The English isn't either, since it isn't overlaying a new voice track on top of the one that's already there -- it's just swapping out one voice track for another. We shouldn't be calling either of them dubs, but we should be consistent in describing them since they really are the same thing. That'...

It's a well done cover. I thoroughly enjoyed it though I am no expert.

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

Thanks for the correction. However, a little research tells me that although this is true for US animation, it is not generally so for Japanese animation. This page (which mentions the film I referred to - Akira ) has the following paragraph: (There are two English dubs of Akira - It would be inter...

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

Glad to have provided you with some material for it :wink: On dubs in general, just two brief comments. You mention acting to mouth flaps as a reason for English dubs to be inferior - but of course the Japanese voice actors are acting to mouth flaps as well; although I can think of one film (a coup...

Re: Just finished watching NGE and EOE, can dead people return to life after 3rd impact?

I think what people are forgetting about is you need to be willling to continue living to be able to come back so it would be less people than most would think. Plus I don't think the majority of people working on Eva were thinking indepth about non main character coming back etc. To the topic thoug...

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

Frankly this comes across as overly concerned with some pretty trifling details. By the standards of the time it wasn't bad. Fair enough. My intention was to go over the basics in this one but I kind of didn't like only covering one episode and talking about the minor changes but most of the work h...

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

I noted that you said that, but I recall reading the exact opposite; I guess I need to look for a source before discussing that further. Isn't that attitude rather at odds with claiming to care so much about the accuracy of the dub? Oh It wasn't my intention. I would say pronouciation is less impor...

Re: A Quick look at the Evangelion Dub Compared to the Original

I mentioned in the video that people had already seen the series when they started the dubbing unless they are misrembering when they retold there stories in 2005ish. I've also spot checked later episodes and they have the same problems as the first one, like when I showed a bit of EOE. I remember a...

Re: Has anyone else seen this amazing fan-made trailer?

I actually find watching this rather unsatisfying. I don't the lyrics to the song connect with the series or the scenes added. It reminds a bit of comic book movie trailers and in some ways it's not as well done. I don't feel that this elevates the song or the footage. This isn't badly done by any m...
