You know i honestly did think this, i watched the trailer for the japanese version on youtube, and went into it without researching anything and i knew something was fucky when that old man said>when this bitch kicks it, i'm moving to vegas
Never mind the english dub though, yes its going to be crazy but after watching both episodes and looking into it, the english dub is retarded (in a good way) because the normal japanese version is shit and didnt get too much money so they didnt care what the americans did as so long as they kinda followed the story and didnt fuck with the yokai and how they get defeated. they share something in common despite being slightly diffrent, both the english and regular japanese versions closing theme is
mind you, this is an anime for children
IT DOESNT EVEN MATCH THE TONE OF THE STORY
What i also like about the english dub is the meta humor, like in the second episode i guess there's an issue with the art where it looks like the bitch with the blue panties has a stroke and she says
>woah convulsions that was weird
also the christian chick mentioning how she "cast out the ghost girl from the last episode"
Funny stuff so far
they all just stood there and watch as that basketball hoop fell on kada and he even got angry when they just stood there and didn't bother to help free him.
>just as bogus as the church of scientology
>hold out for something better like Cats 2
>have to get home to my trailer wife and kids, bet you can't wait to get older
>i was going to use this glue on your big mouth but i guess this masonry will do
>do you have any books by black people
>why are you crying
>because these pajamas are gay
>why dont you go to this scary isolated payphone at the other side of town
>your a fag and he should join the football team
>YOU WANNA BE AN AIR FORCE RANGER
>YOU WANNA LIVE A LIFE OF DANGER
YOU DONT WANNA GET RAPED BY STRANGERS
>THINK OF A BIG BLACK MAN CHASING YOU
YOU CAN'T CANCEL THE FESTIVAL, ONE LITTLE RETARDED BOY HAS HIS HEART SET ON THIS THING
>did the crips beat you up and take your shoes too?
>must have been hit by an old chinaman, i don't mean to be racist, but those people do not know how to drive
Only complaint i have so far that it honestly feels too western to be called an anime, but it's not like i'm not injoying it.
Ghost Stories is starting to get better. I wasn't so sure about the show at the start, but now it seems promising.
hey look it's the 8th rozen doll, mary-mary>>774
lol this is amazing, i didn't realise it could be turned into a electronica mix
episode 15, 7 minutes 46 seconds
buncha frat girl witches
Why is Momoko dressed as a waiter when she said her family is loaded? I know it is a school uniform but, when I see it, I can only think of Momoko waiting tables for Jesus lole. Also, I loved the cat in episode 16.>>778
Glitter and satanism aren't something I'd expect to see together.
Seems like cat is more of a tsundere if anything
Also yeah the glitter and satanism joke was built up quite well honestly
Now that the series is ending soon. Who would you say is your favorite human character?
momoko because she's a good christian girl
Momoko is a good Christian girl now but is a former slut. I will have to go with Satsuki.
I'll forgive but, I will never forget. It is only fair that I consider someone's past.
The ending sucked but honestly i don't know what i expected from a comedy dub. It was all about the good stuff in the middle and because it was a comedy dub that mostly ignored the shitty plot of the original, it doesn't have any real substance to it besides the comedy. Enoyed it while it lasted though lol.
I hate the dub and the stupid myth surrounding it thanks to the localizer lying about it.
Elaborate, i'm curious about your perspective about this.
They claimed that Gakkou no Kaidan did poorly in Japan. This just isn't true. It's re-aired multiple times, has a significant amount of fanart on pixiv, ranks highly on Japanese anime rating sites and even had good contemporary ratings, roughly comparable to the One Piece anime. Frankly, it seems like they just had no idea how to market an honest, straightforward dub of a show about youkai. Level-5 would later run into this same problem with Youkai Watch, trying to internationally market a show about Japanese folklore, but at least they actually tried with that instead of the worst kind of wannabe MST3K comedy.
Ah i see what they did, so those bastards lied and disrespected the original anime and the creators intent by doing a localization/comedy dub and used the cheap excuse of it flopping in japan and that americans are too stupid to onderstand what a yokai is just so they could make a quick buck. From what i've seen after poking around, you just might be right since the excuse that was made is generally copy-pasted, and there's no real statistics on if it flopped in japan or not. Not only that but yes, tons of japanese fan art.
Pretty much. I don't know why they lied about it exactly, but I hate the commonly established narrative of it a lot. Especially since most of the jokes are really topical and don't age well.
