Oh my god the engirsh, my heart can't take it.
Oh my god the engirsh, my heart can't take it
I've always wondered why Japs won't just hire English VAs to do English speaking characters.
you have a point
Why would they? That's not cute at all.
Probably because there isn't any good English VA's who are fluent in Japanese.
Many seyiuu can speak passable english, but the director has them speak engrish so your average retard jap NEET can understand them.
Nippon truly is the dumbest country on earth.
almost drop it first episode because of all the shitty engrish
spend the rest of the series hoping for more qt japanese engrish
Such a painful show
Because they speak English for a small part of the show and an English VA would sound retarded to the people who anime creators actually give a shit about
The same reason most other languages in english shows aren't particularly well done.
- You want someone who can play the role before someone who can speak any alternate languages properly. Both is ideal, sure, but there are concessions to make.
- Most of your audience doesn't understand anyway, so getting it accurate doesn't matter
- Sometimes it's actually better to not go with native speakers of other languages. Japanese speakers understand someone slowly tiptoeing around common English words with inflections they know far better than they understand fluent English. Same the other way around. This is actually why some VAs that can speak other languages decently still ham it up for certain roles.
He didn't sound native english... Maybe an exceptionally good jap, but not a native english speaker
well Kakihara did spend his school days mostly in Germany
If you think that's bad listen to Alice's character song for season 2, it's in full engrish.
He did. He didn't sound very enthusiastic though, but that's another thing.
This thread seems a little awkwad.
Watch the Psycho-Pass movie. I had to mute the Engrish parts after a while.
It's English time!
At first it was weird then it just got to a point where it was laughable. At the end of the day I suppose they were just trying to convey how foreign the country they were in was to japan and instead of actually figuring out another language to fit the setting they just went with english because in the future all countries speak english besides japan, i guess?
Regardless I still had a good laugh once I adjusted to it.
What excuse did black lagoon have then? Mind you Revy is supposed to be half American so it makes no sense for her to have Engrish
Do that thing!
IS THAT LIMEY BINT MICHAEL FUCKING CAINE
CHRIST ALIVE THOSE BLOODY TWATS ALL SOUND ALIKE I TELL YA
They don't sound anything alike, though.
The English in this show just isn't believable. When they wake up they are speaking Japanese rather than going to English, which would be a normal reaction because they spoke English all their life. Karen does have an exception being half Japanese but she didn't speak Japanese at home.
Shit, I thought Kiniro Mosaic was an exactly realistic depiction of seventeen-year-old lesbian weebs. I've been lied to.
anime should be just like real life
Where are all the fags like coming from?
Holy shit was this real?
The male gaijin's VA is an american living in Japan, he has his own band with some other natives there
The female is apparently a 40 year old Japanese lady
He didn't sound very enthusiastic though, but that's another thing.
Have you ever met an enthusiastic black cab driver?
That's one thing TYO did as good as Dogakobo.
Because Gaijin speaking broken Japanese sounds more cancerous for nips
I'd say it's easier to butcher english than japanese since nips suffer a severe case of
>tfw no syllables
I doubt even the VAs themselves understood the English they were saying, without having the Japanese next to their lines.
They don't have to, a lot of the VAs speak english really good normally, they speak like dogshit on purpose while doing voice overs.
Just watch symphogear and listen to sawashiros fucking awful engrish and then compare that to her English interviews.
Why is Karen so shit? She ruined the whole musical episode.
is this the same user in all those threads, or is it a group of anons who take it upon themselves to continue the tradition?
Its a group.
Mods made the mistake of banning the originator for a day or two. Two or three others stepped in and started doing it just because they disliked the mods banning someone.
They hired some Australians in Free!
That couple was qt
I don't remember this and I've been following Kinmosa threads pretty thoroughly.
Yeah he did, but it sounded like the Japanese wrote the lines, making it very stiff sounding.
idroid and raising / raging heart both were voiced by an aussie
There's also TK's voice actor.
But you can't realistically make a career out of voicing minor characters, so of course there's not much professional English speaking seiyu living in Japan.
Alice's VA studied a year before the series.
Why were those green arrows done by someone with parkinsons in MS Paint?
