It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
Did you know I like Yoko from Gurren Lagann? Well I do! I own about 28 Yoko figures and am still missing only one to complete my collection of all the Scaled PVCs of Yoko. This is the latest one that has been released for Gurren Lagann's 5th Year Anniversary.Of course I'm partially biased when it… [more]
Weee Alter's Panty finally came in! Been dying for a decent Panty and Stocking figure and Alter has answered our calls! There are only a few Panty figures and by far this one is the best. Her face is truly Panty!Her eyes especially are panty, even the teeny bit of blue eye shadow that figures rarely… [more]
Haven't shown off my updated room, not much has changed other than, of course more figures! There have been so many more figures since the last update. I decided to group all my Black Rock Shooter figures together, I feel they look better together than separated around the room.I've gotten so many… [more]
I don’t know if anyone knows but i hate, HATE WITH A PASSION, Johnny Yong Bosh. He sounds the same in every damn thing he does and this dub of Code Geass is just the same as all his other roles. I just saw the first episode of Code Geass online at AdultSwim.com and i have to admit, i hated every minute of it. Kallen sounds like a whinny bitch, C.C. Sounds too monotone, Lelouch sounds just… TERRIBLE! Rival sounds like he’s trying to be too damn cool. Shirley sounds like a dingbat (oh wait she is) but worse in this dub, Milly sounds like she’s in love with Lelouch. Orange-kun sounds like your generic bad guy, Suzaku sounds like a sissy. it’s easy to say that I don’t like dubs, if you honestly love anime why not watch it in its original form.
What made Code Geass worthy for me in reality was the seiyuu performances, Fukuyama Jun’s performance was what made me keep watching Code Geass. He is Lelouch! His performance embodied the character so well, it’s impossible for me to imagine anyone else playing this role as well as he does. You don’t go see a foreign film dubbed do you? You watch it in it’s original language! You can’t watch Life is Beautiful in English and not expect it to lose it’s charm and flavor! You can’t see Pan’s Labyrinth and hope that the story still makes sense in english! Why should anime be any different! Would you appreciate going to another country and seeing Gone with the Wind in Dutch or German or any other language? Would Rhett Butler sound the same? Would “Frankly i don’t give a damn” sound the same? It won’t, so if you love anime so much why watch it butchered in this fashion.
You can see this horrible dub in action here, but i won’t recommend it.
