This section is dedicated to the discussion of Japanese Anime and Manga — as long as it's not Pokémon related! Want to geek out about a long time classic? Or maybe you keep up with currently airing anime, and you want to join in on the excitement and discussion? You've come to the right place!
There are a lot of anime dubs in other languages besides English. What are some non english anime dubs you've watched? I'm thinking of trying some spanish or german anime dubs on netflix, there's some there.
I've watched the Pokemon anime in Chinese but outside of that, haven't had much experience in hearing anime in languages outside Japanese or English. In our case it was our family is Chinese so we have a lot of the Pokemon anime and movies in Chinese. I also watched Spirited Away in Chinese, I believe! I can't really remember well how it sounded but it wasn't too bad. It's more jarring when it's Chinese over a Western movie than an animated series.
Ghost Stories isn't what I had in mind when I say bad dub. Given they basically only had to keep the name of the monster and the method to lock it up intact but were given free reign to make it into something that sold well, they did great with their ad-libbing. Many of the jokes did not age well (we are 20 years on from when the dub released), but the voice acting is actually extremely strong there.
I'm thinking more like the Garzeys Wing dub. And other shows mostly from the '80s with '80s or '90s dubs.
