But the breasts! They're so hard to get away from! You've been seventeen too, Lappy, don't tell me you haven't!

Speaking of Harems and breasts...I went back and looked at some of the anime that I watched when I was younger (outside of Toonami, I consider the time that I got into anime to be when I got Comcast for the first time and started watching the Anime Network...so 2003)...good God. I...uh...I should not have been watching that stuff. That was ten years ago, so I was 7 at the time (it really doesn't feel like that long ago). Looking back, I watched both Steel Angel Kurumis, Burn Up, Those Who Hunt Elves, Sorcerer Hunters, Maburaho, and other anime that I...I just shouldn't have been watching. Elfen Lied was on the list, and I always saw it there...it's a good thing I didn't click it ._.'

I don't think I was on the internet back then. I may have been, I didn't watch anime on there. The anime I watched back then was either on Toonami, FoxBox (aka 4Kids TV or Fox Kids), Kids WB, or the Anime Network On Demand (which is also what taught me what anime was, and that's what I consider how I got into anime), so it was always on TV.

2007ish was when I got back into anime. My mum noticed Blood+ on the TV, watched it and it was pretty kul. Started watching stuff as it aired around the time To Love Ru and Code Geass were airing.

Code Geass and Blood+ came on for me but I couldn't watch them, they came on on weekdays and I couldn't stay up that late.

Speaking of nostalgia, I remember when this first aired in America and I fell in love with it:

I consider Love Hina and Bleach to be the shows that pushed me into the whole anime thing for real. Back in 2009, when everything was exciting and awesome.
Then Kämpfer came along. But let's not speak of Kämpfer.

I'm no sub elitist but that johnny Yong Bosch Ichigo made me so angry my demon fox chakra came out a little. Quite strange as I liked him in my Code Geass rewatch whenever I did that.

I got into teh big shounens pretty late actually, considering they're supposed to be gateway shows.

Johnny Yong Bosch is one of my favorite male VAs in the dub business, along with Yuri Lowenthal and Liam O' Brien, but I didn't particularly care for his role in Bleach. Having said that, the dub of Bleach isn't that good, and after I caught up with Bleach I immediately switched to subs.

I will say, though, that he plays Ichigo VERY passionately.

To be fair Ichigo's character doesn't really allow for much variety. Lots of "huuuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaa" and "GEEEEEEEETSUGAA TENNNNNNNNNNSHOUUUUU" but not a lot else.

English dubs are quite pointless from my perspective. Mostly since English isn't my native language.

Because of that there isn't much I can contribute to a discussion about English VAs.

These aren't really Sub Vs. Dub debates, just a Johnny Yong Bosch talk.

You should still watch the English dubbed version of Ghost Stories though, Pokey.

Doesn't a debate require people to be on different sides? This appears to be a discussion which has wandered into the territory of voice acting.

It doesn't have to be a debate perse, but this subject often does blossom into a lively discussion for sure~

Personally I treat Subs & Dubs of the same show as a functionally similar but different show. Kind of like when a show is made by it's original studio and then is remade say, 10 years later by another studio that puts another spin on it.

With that assumption in mind, I don't believe either subs or dubs are better. It truly depends on the show. Some shows have a more enjoyable dub, some have the more enjoyable sub. Even despite the fact that I may have a personal preference for one over the other for practical reasons, I don't believe that anyone who argues passionately over this topic really understands things, and they're missing out on otherwise great anime. Sometimes re-watching the anime in the other format is quite enjoyable, and it brings more nuance to the series overall...regardless of how enjoyable you find it.

Ghost Stories is an awful anime but the English dubbing studio got permission to rewrite the script. They basically turned it into it's own abridged series.

I've only seen one episode for the dub for Ghost Stories. I love how they basically threw the original script out the window and made it hilarious. XD One of the few dubs where something like that's acceptable cause it took a boring story and made it funny.

Bakemongatari is actually getting released in our bluray region soon, Pokey. Probably going to cost 9 million pounds though.

Yeah. It's a shame those things cost so much, but I guess it would be fun to have.

Well, you know, would be if I had a Blu-Ray player.
