ok, so I’m doing this instead of Inktober this year, (you can tell my editing skills are lacking in comparison to my art skills, might I add) and I dunno if anyone else will do this, but if you want to I’d be fine with that. Anti-tober is nothing but evil mahou shoujos everyday, so be prepared for the endless onslaught of weeaboo posts.
Ummm… rewatching dub Yu Yu Hakusho, and it’s the last season (never seen) and it’s the part with Koenma, and Kuwabara is trying to make a joke. He tries to say “oral fixation” about Koenma’s pacifier and without batting an eye, Kurama corrects the one word as “fixation” then rolls immediately into a detailed explanation of the usual magical demon/spirit stuff. Just how the dialogue flows REALLY makes me appreciate dubs.
I don’t know if it’s the same nowadays, but people used to hate on dubs pretty hard. There are some shows that just sound better to me in Japanese (Kamisama Kiss/Hajimemashita) and maybe it’s nostalgia but there are some shows that nail the English dub cast (YYH, Saiyuki, Pretear). Then here are some I flip between languages constantly like Code Geass, Nabari no Ou, Ouran High School Host Club…
But goddamn that exchange made me guffaw since it was so unexpected.
