    Default English boxsets VS. Japanese boxsets

    I buy mostly boxsets and I purchase both english and japanese boxsets. The English boxsets contain space for more voulmes. While the Japanese boxsets are smaller and have flaps which contains the anime discs rather than volume boxes . Also they have a greater number of episodes on one disc. I like both boxset styles. But the question is which do you prefer? Japanese or English Boxset (or both).
    Just hope tomorrow will be a better day.


    I don't know what's suppose to happen but then again I don't really care


    Love the life you have. It could be much worse.

    I think this is in the wrong forum, though

    I always i reapeat always by american box sets with any thing but anime. Anime just tends to be cheaper with japan box sets like gundam wing was only 45$ rather then 100 some odd. But they are low quality disks alot of japan ones are. I purchased 3 hellraiser jpn discks they were terrible as low grade as it comes. Bad boxes and lots of skiping and around 6 ot 9 chapters per movie! So now i only by american box sets which are always better quality.

    I concur. If you hate the American voices, you can always change it to Japanese audio w/subs.

    Yup buy the english versions. you can alwasy change it to the Japanese sub version, but the only down side is that the subs get in the way sometimes. But i don't mind since i watch both the english and japanese of the english version. I like to compare voices. sometimes the Japanese voice acting is better (GUndum Seed) and sometimes the english version is as good or better than the Japanese voice acting (Figure 17)

    I concur. I especially love the anime where the voices are just as good in both (Trigun).

    I remember hearing the Bebop movie in Japanese, and I thought the voices were adequate.

    Yeah, actually, the voices are the way they were intended in the Japanese. When translated, and then directed over again, they rarely come out with the same feeling in the acting.

    I realize that. But some people are just critical regardless. Personally, I don't REALLY mind the VA in English, unless the voices TOTALLY don't fit the characters.

    I'm not blaming the voice actors. Not in the least. And actually, some of the American voice actors do a better job than some of the Japanese. It's something that can't be helped. Translation always loses something.
