Anonymous asked: Should I watch Evangelion dubbed or subbed?

maxscoville:

It breaks my heart that this is even a question. I know there are some dubs that are better than others, but to me, anime dubbing is fundamentally shitty, and asking whether you should watched dubbed or subbed is like asking if you should watch a comedian’s set, or have that comedian’s jokes retold for you by someone else.

It’s not even as simple as saying it’s like hearing a bad cover of a song, because covers are often add something new to the original (like this kickass punk version of the Evangelion theme, for instance.) I think anime dubs are more often like the Kidz-Bop version of a song, taking something amazing and rehashing it into cringeworthy pablum to reach a wider audience. 

I don’t know anyone who watches dubs of The Seven Samurai or Amélie or Run Lola Run or Pan’s Labyrinth, so why is it somehow acceptable for dubbing to be standard practice for animation? If anything, it should be even less acceptable. Human beings took time to draw, frame-by-frame, every goddamn mouth movement. Dubbing is like “Oh, hey, some people don’t like reading subtitles, so we’re just gonna rewrite this entire script the best we can and try to line it up with your mouth movements.”

The only dubs I condone are the hilariously shitty early 90s ones, like Pioneer’s Akira and Manga Video’s Street Fighter 2. Or fucking Mad Bull 34.

And yeah, I know I sound like a crotchety oldtaku, and some sassy lil’ teenaboo is probably gonna reblog and add “Wah, but the dub for Prince of Tennis is excellent!” but listen up, imaginary sassy lil’ teenaboo: you don’t deserve all the DVD/Blu-Ray language options, streaming services, and dual-audio .MKV formats. Back in my day, you’d either watched butchered, censored version of the dub on Toonami, paid thirty bucks for an uncensored version of the dub on VHS, or left Kazaa running for a week straight to download a grainy fansub that could only run in RealPlayer.

So yeah, I say watch Evangelion subbed.

What the heck that Evangelion punk cover is fantastic.

Now I know: this is the same guy being a troll shit. What’s dumb is that I have to see this on the very popular tags. My goal is to blog peacefully without this dumb crap around. Even if this person is secretly serious about this opinion (which wouldn’t surprise since he/she has the fake nerve to post this on the internet), it’s bothering me big time. There’s a difference between saying your views on something, than there’s displaying it in an unprofessional and hateful manner. On top of it, you’re still trying to get a hate army for it like you want the anime to cancel on your word.
Whoever you are (probably an 11 year old), let us blog and share good posts without seeing this crap. I still see this as hate since you left the same offensive captions (only changed two words) and would dare to hate on another anime. You don’t like it? Whatever. Just don’t post how much you hate it while being offensive to those who would take those fucked up slurs to a whole different extreme than a shout-out. Get an actual life and learn to keep your mouth shut to things you don’t like. They won’t go away because you said so. Others instantly take this with harm, and I’m really about to.
I feel bad for part of the SAO fandom (at least 75%) that doesn’t appreciate such an illogical comparison. It makes no sense, chronologically, nor do you have any standpoint since you, in fact, did not watch it. Those who learned what the anime is ALL about wouldn’t only say “two gayfers playing piano”.
One day you’ll actually grow up and understand that these posts were irrational and unnecessary. That’ll probably be a long time from now.I won’t say anything on the next dumb comparison you make, for I don’t have anything else to add about your opinions and actions on the internet.
P.S.: I know you wanted to see me post this again, I don’t need a genius to point that out for me. However, I can’t get in trouble for publicly pointing out the truth about your ignorance & stupidity. It makes me wonder if you’ll start a post against me. It wouldn’t do much, though, if you did.

Patrick Bateman: Do you like Gainax?
Paul Allen: They’re OK.
Patrick Bateman: Their early work was a little too pedestrian for my tastes, but in 1995, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. Neon Genesis Evangelion was an instant classic and it brought a new, grown up dimension to the mecha genre. Hideaki Anno has been compared to Go Nagai, but I think Anno-san has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.
Paul Allen: Hey Halberstram.
Patrick Bateman: Yes, Allen?
Paul Allen: Why are their copies of Newtype USA all over the place, d-do they even still print that?
Patrick Bateman: No, Allen.
Paul Allen: Is that a kigurumi?
Patrick Bateman: Yes it is! In ‘97, Gainax released this, End of Evangelion, their most accomplished film. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Komm, süsser Tod”, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of oblivion, and the importance of death, it’s also a personal statement about the film itself.

There’s this story that Gainax made this Daicon IV animation and invited Osamu Tezuka to see it. Afterwards, those Gainax nerds asked Tezuka what he thought of it, he replied with “That was pretty good, but I think you were missing something.” Later the dinguses at Gainax realized they didn’t put a single Tezuka character in there.
