Anyone else think it's done down after they stop doing single releases?
If you go back and watch series that were put out in singles and they way they release stuff now. I find the acting much better with series that were put out as singles. Hell, with people complaining about Bandai still sticking with single releases (well, not singles, but they weren't doing what Funimation and Sentai are) They might've not been releasing in half seasons (or whatever), but their dubbing or shows were better because they weren't doing rush jobs.
If you go back to the commentary, on Cowboy bebop and Saiyuki, they said they took 3-4 days recording 1 episode and only let the actors record for 2-3 hours straight. Now, from when I asked Chris Patton, they takes 2 weeks to dub those 11-13 long episode series. That's a huge increase in recording speed. So, you fans didn't want singles anymore...you got the outcome of it now...poor dubbing.
