So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]
Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]
I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]
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]
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.
