This man, up there, gets it. If anything short of learning japanese, you need to go sub. Otherwise, it is like watching an american movie in another language. It might be well done, but you don't get the real thing.

The blacklist comes to mind as i saw someone watch it in french. Now, Reddington's voice is very grave in english and gives strenght to certain scenes and certain speechs in the serie.
In french, they gave him a much much lighter voice. It changes the carracter completly and all those moments where his voice matter. In the end, he does not convey the same feeling of danger and it fall short of the experience you get in english.

I'll still argue against this. Specifically, the idea of the experience "falling short." If, for some reason, a French viewer completely detested the way the English language sounded (either in general or for these actors in particular), then they'd probably have a more satisfying viewing experience with the French dub.

I will concede that, in the end, it depends on how much the tone of the movie changes with the liberties of the localization. If the film ends up bastardized beyond repair as a result, then I can agree it wouldn't be worth the dubbing effort. This may or may not be true for The Blacklist (which I haven't seen). In the case of Bakemonogatari, as I hinted at, I had a perfectly fine experience without any puns at play, so I'll go ahead and say that the dub was worth it for me.

In the end, though, we're circling back to the concept of author's intent ("you don't get the real thing"). That's yet another issue we have different stances on, which is why we most likely won't see eye-to-eye on dubbing matters, no matter how much we debate ;).

Hey, welcome I guess. You should probs go make an introduction post in the introduction section if you want, you’re more likely to get greeted there.

I'd be interested in a top 10 or 100 even list from you. Was fun to organize and think about.

Well I was working on doing this. But working through the whole thing on an individual level was just too much. Every time I took a break and returned to it I’d spend way too long re organising everything already there. I just can get it down to that specific on a thing, so I instead made something a little more broad and I’m actaully really happy with how it turned out.

A tier list, S-F of every anime I’ve completed. However I limited everything to 1 entry per series, so I’d just take whatever my favourite part of said series was and then make that have a place to somewhat represent the whole series’ placement. Otherwise multiple seasons of the same shows would end up unnecessarily filling in areas.

Also note I said series, not franchise. All the different fates get their win entry and love live and sunshine are separated. With these things there’s enough difference that they deserve their own spots, alright, with all that out of the way here it is. I’ll post the image as well as a link to the page where it’s uploaded in case the image isn’t clear enough for you.

Tiermaker has a watermark in the top right corner unfortunately. So just to be clear it’s covering K-On!! and Seriel Experiments Lain.

Let me know what you guys think, anything you agree with or disagree with? Anything you find interesting, let me know. And feel free to ask me about any placement or clarifications if you need to. Since it’s image based each one might not be 100% clear, so ask me about some if you’re not sure.

I don’t think you’ll find many people who’ll disagree with me on the E & F placements, or at least be able to understand why someone would place them so low. Minus the 3 ghibli films in F which people constantly seem bothered by.

I don't like the tone of this text. How dare you
