Hey guys :smile:

My name is Sarah (as you can gather from my ultra-original username), I'm 21 and from Glasgow, Scotland. I'm pretty new to Anime but my favourites so far are Hellsing, FMA: Brotherhood, Death Note and Claymore.

I do like drawing but I don't have the confidence to show anyone else my stuff lol :P

I keep and work with Reptiles and have an interest in Herpetology, currently only have 3 lizards at home just now though, no snakes as i've got rats and a rabbit too lol:P I'm also a big gamer !, I play ps3 so i'll need to go add my gamer tag to that thread, I also love older games, my fave is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the past!

I am a massive martial arts fan and love Asian films in General, oh and can't forget i'm a Trekkie too lol :laugh:

:) FMA Brotherhood was the first full series of anime I watched, I was hooked lol, still haven't watched the first anime but i'm sure i'll get round to it!, Claymore is AMAZING, you should definitely make the time to see it!

Well I actually stay about 15 minutes out of Glasgow (in Johnstone), it's okay, although the weather is always awful :( !

Hey, yeah I loved Brotherhood! I was so hooked when I started watching it, coming home from work and watch like 2 or 3 before dinner :D

I've heard Clannad is good so that's on my list of things to watch, i'll have a look at the other ones you recommended:) thanks

I loved ur post, thank you for all your suggestions, I shall take note and add them on my "to watch" list :D
I prefer subbed if i'm honest! I really can't stand anything being dubbed, I just can't listen to it, I remember this old Jackie Chan movie I put on, he dubbed over his own voice in english? that just ain't right !!! :D

A lot of those anime have really good dubs. I tend to watch anime in dub due to disabilities (blargh) and I admit that most are terrible.

But I know for a fact that Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop have fantastic dubs, and I have no complaint about Soul Eater's dub (apart from Lord Death's voice but I think that was more an intentionally goofy voice than anything >.>). Trigun's dub is good too. I think most of the others may not be dubbed yet so you may only find them in subbed format at best.

well then luckily for you, any anime that is dubbed, can also be found subbed. unfortunately for me, it doesn't work so well the other way around haha

I can see why some people prefer dubbed, I've always hated it, I remember watching Bruce Lee movies when I was a little girl and I couldn't understand why his lips were moving at the wrong time and his voice didn't make sense, could only concentrate on about a quarter of the film!, it's one of the reasons I avoid DUBS to this day!

I actually tried to show my nephew FMA:Brotherhood the other day, he asked if he could watch it in dubs, I spent most oft he episode cringing :( maybe it's because I've heard it all before and his voice just sounded weird to me!.

I have tried to watch a few Dubbed, just doesn't feel right :( haha, I remember trying to watch Hellsing OVA dubbed after I had watched the first anime series and I was like WHY? would they even think that voice suits Alucard :(

Each to their own though, I can see why people prefer dubs :)

yea. i like dubs because i watch tv to watch tv. if i wanna read, i'll just get a book. and personally, i find the japanese voices to be quite annoying. But thats just personal preference. its like some people like lots of bass, others like lots of vocals. there really is no right or wrong.

Well in anime the matter of lip-syncing perfectly isn't so important because in many cases they can manually edit the individual frames to match (or in most cases edit what is said, which is why sometimes things being said aren't 100% accurate, translation-wise.)

But -shrug.- as I said, some anime have really good dubs. Most are pretty terrible, and as of late I've only watched stuff in subbed format, but where possible I tend to use dubs unless it is genuinely really really horrible - like the sort of horrible where you cry in shame towards the poor VAing. :l
