    Rules:
    post a something from a pretty well known and dignified anime series/movie where dubbing into english just fudged the hell up...

    My example to start
    Series: Neon Genesis Evangelion - End of Evangelion

    What: When Misato shoots that guy in the head and the added the gloopy sound, they also added it to the sacrifice of the dummy plug Evas. Listening to the commentary they were so proud they did that and felt creative as hell, when in reality whenever I hear that, Nickelodeon's Double Dare would flash through my mind...


    your turn...

    Theres a girl working in the resrant with a Texen accent
    The fact that it ends with filler

    lol prbobably cause they treated it like pokemon

    most manga is meant for teens and pre-teens when it comes to america

    pokemon had lots of swearing and maybe a bit o blood to but then they were like HEYY this would make a great kids show and editted out all the good stuff

    also Card captors
    Worst ever
    Missing episodes
    Chunks of the plot missing (the whole Tomome in love with Sakura thing is gone)
    Annoying opening
    Renaming characters (Sakuras last name)

    Naruto in general. I love the Japanese version, but the English version makes me want to crawl up in a corner, shut my eyes as hard as I can and block the terrible voice acting out of my head.

    The 1st time I saw Naruto was when it debuted on Toonami, and I was like, "Wow, this is awsome!!!" I watched it on Youtube and it changed my life. :lol:

    let's give it up to FMA (Full Metal Alchemist) for making probably one of the best English dubs ever. Anyone agree?

    *EDIT*
    Your thinking of Sakura from Naruto, Prinny's talking about Sakura from card captors. :lol:

    Worst ever, Naruto and DBZ in English. Are the voice actors good? Sure. But they raped those cartoons so badly my eyes and ears hurt. I can only watch Naruto dubbed in Japanese.

    Are you being serious? :lol: Naruto's voice sounds terrible, Sakura's isn't bad, Sasuke's sucks, the girls are the only ones that sound remotely "okay".

    Somewhere...I think, wait,who am I??
    I got soooo mad when I found out what they did, CCS was my fav. manga!
    I found the J/U.S names

    Sakura Kinomoto / Sakura Avalon (what's bad about Kinomoto?)
    Toya Kinomoto / Tori Avalon
    Fujitaka Kinomoto / Aiden Avalon
    Nadeshiko Kinomoto / Natasha Avalon
    Tomoyo Daidouji / Madison Taylor (This one made me :mad2: time 50)
    Eriol Hiiragizawa / Eli Moon
    Kaho Mizuki / Layla Mackenzie (Layla??? How did they get this name?)
    Yukito Tsukishiro / Julian Star (again :mad2: )


    Why did they do this, do they think little kids need MORE shows!
