Re: Amazon Prime Video release

Obviously Japanese and English are completely different languages, with different sentence structure and syntax rules, so translating Japanese to English will always have to have some smoothing over. It's all a matter of degree. Even the greatest dubs aren't 100% translations of the Japanese scripts...

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

Not a fan of the Kaworu casting and "you're worthy of my grace"/"I like you" are bad lines. Though I feel like the homoeroticism is so inherent to their relationship that it's not something you could really get rid of by altering the lines. I don't think they were trying to inte...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Amanda Winn Lee is a decent enough voice actor, but I don't understand her obsession here. It's not even like playing Rei is even a meaty role, vocally (even for Hayashibara).

I still prefer the new dub (more nuanced performances), but yeah, it is a little clunky at times, scriptwise.

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

I felt like Spencer and Grant were both the biggest problems with the old ADV dub, because their depictions of Shinji and Asuka sound very broad and stereotypical. So them returning for the Funimation dubs of the Rebuild movies made me facepalm. (I can take or leave Allison Keith, sometimes she's re...

Re: GKids releasing NGE Blu-Ray in North America 2021

I can imagine Khara demanding a brand new dub for the Rebuild movies, leaving the Funimation cast out in the cold. Which means eventually, GKids might be putting out a Rebuild set with the VSI cast. But that's getting ahead of things. They haven't even put out the TV series yet and there's been no a...

Re: Waiting for Evangelion:3.0+1.0

No, the problem with 3.0 is that nothing happened in it. It was a big nothing. It felt like it was just a distraction to hold us over until they were ready with the final movie. They did more with Kaworu in episode 24 of the TV series and he was only in, like, five minutes of it.

Re: GKids releasing NGE Blu-Ray in North America June 2021

It'll probably have the Netflix dub, which is fine by me, I prefer it to the ADV dub (though the Japanese version is still the best!). Anyway, I'm pretty excited for it. I hope it's not too expensive a release. I want it.

I wouldn't laugh. I much prefer the new dub. I only ask that they restore "Fly Me to the Moon" in any physical release.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

I ended up doing a whole blog post about why I feel the new dub captures more of the characters’ subtleties. I managed to get in a good amount of explanation. However, to summarize, the old dub is broader and exaggerated while the new one feels more natural and has more shades.

And, of course, the best performance of all is Cherami Leigh as Pen Pen. It's a vital role that not just anyone can play. He's a principle player in the series!

Or just hates the original's VAs guts on an almost personal level according to post history. Way to use your first post to attack me personally.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Spencer's Shinji was a garish parody of the character, though. An over-emphasis on whininess and whimpiness without the sensitive fragility.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Fine, I merely saw a series of clips, but some of them were important scenes (like the ending of Episode 26). I know the series well enough to know whether I like how they handled those scenes, and felt like they did. It'll be some time before I can go and watch the whole thing with the new dub. My ...

I hate people complaining about "Fly Me To The Moon". It's just a Netflix release. I can imagine any physical release would retain it.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

I'm frankly flabbergasted that the response is so negative. This dub absolutely obliterates the old ADV dub, especially in the VAs for Shinji and Asuka, who actually sound like real characters, and not just cardboard exaggerations. There's so much more nuance in the new dub, characters have room to ...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

It puts a real smile on my face that neither Spencer or Grant will be allowed to drag down this new dub. Though it could have its own host of problems, depending on the ADR studio and new cast. Which, by the way, I’m impatiently awaiting the reveal of.

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

I love how they spent years working on the dub for 3.33, and it wasn't any better than the dubs for the first two movies: fine, but not great. Still had Spencer and Grant (though, to be fair, Asuka had maybe eight lines in the whole movie). Maybe it's just because I loathe 3.33 in general, but it di...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

The desperation makes me want them to recast out of principle now. I already didn’t like these VAs in their roles, now I’m actually starting to dislike them as people. Spencer especially has been annoying on Twitter.
