The show is actually really good. Animation quality? TOPNOTCH. Story? Okay. But honestly you don't need to take the anime seriously because its meant to be funny and it IS entertaining (im speaking without the fan service). Also the Live action is really FANTASTIC. Actors were on point and if you want something more serious stick to the drama. Its really awesome XD (Midorikawa Hana actress is on Point. Loving her so far)
I just finished watching the 2nd episode of the broadcast dub, I think that this dub is pretty good (eventhough I still think that J Michael Tatum would've been a better choice for Gakuto than Eric Vale). I personally think that the voice actors has really improved as their characters (except for Sonny Strait as Andre and Eric Vale as Gakuto). I think that FUNimation made a great choice casting Smokey DeLange (Charlie Campbell) as the Chairman.
Yeah the Chairman is even better than the original I think that actor may have looked to the manga for inspiration as the bits where he exclaims the words are given greater emphasis which is not done to the same degree in the sub, but in the manga those words get there own panels so the greater emphasis is more consistent with the source materiel, and its just straight up funnier.
And given the problem a lot of dubs have with eccentric voices its nice to see a dub doing it better for once, and my basis for this look at Accelerator in ACSR and ACMI and Megumi Noda in Nodame Cantabile come to mind easily, where the rest of the dub cast was pretty darn good but for the one character.
And I basically can't watch the dub for Nodame Cantabile because the VA just can't do Megumi justice and its a shame because everyone else is great. Accelerator not being good in the dub is ok because he's only a side character.
I still don't know how "gamergate" is a a political agenda. I thought it was something and not somebody or any one group. I thought they were poking fun at how mad people got over whatever it was that happened.
But hey, I'm okay with a dub as long as it tells an interesting story. That's why I loved abridged series.
