Thanks to all the new people who posted, especially you, NovaStar (your second post, not your first one; it was rude). I didn't think this topic would catch on. (Maybe I should put it on another forum and see what I get.)
I guess after hearing so much negative attention about dubs, I started to wonder if liking subs more was better because I like dubs, too. I was afraid to admit it.
The only dub and dubbing company I do dislike is...well...you know!
As for the Naruto dub, I don't see the problem here. Besides Ino's voice (it's not working for me personally). And it's Cartoon Network who has been playing with the opening and closing songs (my biggest pet peeve), isn't it?
As for the purists, they really can be very demanding. Some of the stuff they complain about is unfair. In fact, I've rethought the quotes up there.
As for dubbing in general, it's much better in 2007 than it ever was in 1996. Fans, or soon-to-be fans like I was, are much smarter than we used to be. Companies know to pay us otaku some attention.
Almost done, I confess. I watch a lot more dubs than subs. I only watch one real sub regularly which I will not say because I shouldn't repeat myself.
In conclusion, Gold_Roger will be...a subbie and a dubbie!
