What are the three most important things to make a dub great?
Replacement Scores, and English Theme Song - Every Anime that I have watch with Replacement Scores has been better then the Japan Version. Though this question has been ask WAYYYY to much by a little some buddy. But some of the greatest theme song of ALL time where English Theme Song in Anime and it something that show be more done still today. Even if there taking the Japan song and getting an English Singer to do it would still be good as it keep people into it what the show is about. Also have a good Pump Up Song or something catches that will keep people into it like a Rock the Dragon, Or Pokemon got to Catch them All keep people into at the EDGE of there see for what coming next. Some anime the day just does NOT have as much.
Action and getting you Pump Up. You wanted ALOT of action. You wanted to be at the EDGE of you sit to said oh S*** what going to happen next. That what I wanted to see in a dub if I don't see that then good change I not going to wanted to see it anymore which is a BIG reason to why I hate Jojo Season 3 you got give me something to work with. If you not going keep me into the show why am I going keep watching? I just going the change the channel.
Voice Actor Performs! This is VERY VERY important and I sure all will agree. If the voice is not right for the character it just NOT going to work not name any voice in particular from Dragonball Z Kai... But I sure you know who I talking about. Anyway you know to keep the voice to what YOU the actor thing how the character SHOULD sound like in English. We don't speak Japaneses the English Voice Actor SHOULD not sound or try to sound like the Japaneses voice he need to make the voice his OWN in English. This is something that VERY lose in this day age of Dubbing. And it need to stop. Some of the BIGGEST characters that got English Voice from the 90's and Early 2000's made the voice there own and that how it SHOULD be.
What is your top 10 dubs of the past 3 years?
Sorry but I going had to turn this into more of a all time top 10 dub too since I rewatch some of the old dub that I 1st watch when I was younger. Also not sure of spin off show or OVA's will be counted as one in the same. So seen you don't really said anything about so I going to go with in that thinking.
Dragonball Z (Nathren Johnson for Season 1 and 2, Bruce Faulconer Season 3-9 Score) and Ocean Dub Season 1 and 2. and Dragonball English Dub- GREAT ANIME/DUB/SHOW OF ALL TIME. Nothing will ever top this on my list. Do I half to said more? Ocean is a different Dub But I figure I just put then all on for DBZ. Dragonball also had a GREAT Dub with Kid Goku aka the REAL voice of Kid Goku Stephanie.
Dragonball Super English Dub- Since this is currently Dub that airing I count it as it own
Code Geass/Code Geass: Akito the Exiled - Well when I 1st watch this on Adult Swim back in 2008 I could not believe how great of show this was the dub was prefect. And now it hit another home with Code Geass: Akito the Exiled a Dub may I add I wait for OVER 3 YEARS to get English Dub? Funimation did a VERY good job at getting the old voice actors back for return characters. And though the casting the new characters was well done. B/c of of what Bandai already did for Season 1 and 2 and then what Funimation did for Code Geass: Akito the Exiled I had to put this at Number 2 into term of Dubbing. AND A EPIC JAPAN SCORE AS WELL. Code Geass mostly has some of the best background music out there.
Naruto and Naruto Shipption - Yes I know it been going on along time but that does not change how great the dub is. And Great Japan Score to BOOT as well!
Bleach - A LONG anime, but with a great dub cast that did a very good job.
Pokemon Season 1-8 (4Kids Dub) - So if you where to ask me this 5 years ago Pokemon 4Kids would be number 2 still a GREAT Dub to watch even in 2017 and last the test of time (Wish I could said about the current English Dub of Pokemon -_-)
The Yu-Gi-Oh Franchise - Yu-Gi-Oh had some many great dub with Yu-Gi-Oh, and GX however also had a very weak one in Zexel as many people feel that was the weakens Dub cast out of all the Yu-Gi-Oh Animes and I would half to agree. But I feel that hit gold with Yu-Gi-Oh Arc V the Dub cast is VERY good. And I hope some of you here will give it a watch. IT GOT A GREAT THEME SONG TOO. :)
Ok now for some new "blood" to one people will not think I would said Soul Eater - A FANTASTIC English Dub. 1st Air on Toonami very connected with the people voices and characters being shown.
Fairy Tail- Another Dub that suppised me was the Fairy Tail everyone was into it and VERY good Japan Score to boot for people that don't think I don't like Japan Score. he another one I pointing out. Good action etc.
Attack On Titan- Well what else is there to said?
