I know people like to drag on old dubs like Gundam Wing and Slayers but I listened to Free! and Yuri on Ice and holy wow. So much cringe. I thought dubs were getting better!*

Writing for a new fandom is kind of nerve wracking; writing porn for a new fandom is more so. But maybe I'll actually have some fic to post today! [personal profile] imperion and I might be going for coffee+writing so we'll see how that goes. I always like writing porn in public. :D

I really couldn't help myself and hearing that the filming is done for season two hyped me up. She's so cute! ♥

*and because I'm not interested in hashing out the dub vs sub debates of old, these are just my opinions and if you dig modern dubs, that's great!

I'm generally willing to try the dub of any new to me series. A couple of minutes will usually tell me whether or not I can work with it. There are some I like (Cowboy Bebop), and some I don't mind, either because they're not utterly terrible (Case Closed/Detective Conan) or because I ran into them first without subtitles being an option and got used to the voice acting (InuYasha).

I'm often trying to write while I watch things, so a decent dub means I'm more likely to watch a given show.

I'm okay with dub or sub. I prefer dub just because it's easier for me to do things like parenting duties and not have to pause all the time, but...it's not a big deal. :)

Nevermind, I got you confused with someone else. Brain fail. Though you can still have the link if you want it. lol

Exactly the problem I end up having. :/

I have a few friends who LOVE Yuri On Ice, so when I saw you mention it...yeah. :[

Huh, I've never heard complaints about Gundam Wing's dub before. It's definitely one of the better Gundam dubs out there.

I generally give dubs a try, mostly so I can multi-task after putting something in. ^^;; Most of the more recent ones I've watched were okay, but nothing to write home about. But I haven't touched Free! or YoI dubbed... I have the old Free! sub-only DVDs so I can't imagine it dubbed.

I think I generally attach to whatever I see first.

I would probably have done the same thing. Can't wait for season 2.

I thought the YOI one wasn't bad! I couldn't tolerate the Free! one though D: Sooo cringey.

Good luck with your writing!

And that pop figure is so cute! I don't normally like them but that one's awesome.

The Russian accents were a bit cringe but I got used to them, haha - otherwise it just didn't bother me! Though I guess I grew up with some pretty choice dubs so I'm not as fussy about them being a wee bit cringey.

That's good!! :D It's so satisfying when you conquer a bit of writing you were worrying about.

Oh boy, I've only got a smallish anime figure collection and I'm already running out of space for more D: idk how people manage 100s!

I heard a snippet of Yuri Plisetsky's dubbed voice. Whoever did that watched too many bad Hollywood movies with Russian gangsters. -_-

I prefer to watch Gundam Wing dubbed personally. Same with DBZ and YYH. They're the voices I grew up with. I'm especially fond of Brad Swaile's Quatre, although I do love the voices Heero and Relena have in Japanese, so sometimes I watch it subbed.

I know what you mean about cringy dubs, though. For me, Gundam 00 was super cringy dubbed, as were InuYasha, Prince of Tennis, and Naruto. I don't think it's a lack of talent on the part of the voice actors. I just think some voices are bad fits for certain characters, or I'm just too used to the Japanese voices that I perceive them as bad fits, and who knows how I would have felt watching it dubbed first? Also, I'm not sure if those that I listed even count as "modern." Just goes to show how much anime I've been watching over the years. XP

I avoid dubs like the plague. Especially with American accents, it makes the whole thing seem so much more cartoony. Which, I know its animated, but American VAs seem to always push it over into the silly end of the spectrum. Maybe that's how the Japanese VAs sound if you're Japanese, but to me they sound more natural.

It's also true as you say in your comment above that it depends on what you hear first. Once I get attached to a VA, that's it. I felt so terrible in the last Haikyuu season that Ukai's VA died. All I could think about the last two eps was how wrong his voice sounded with the new person.
