    Default Ouran High School Host Club : English Dubbed

    Ok, well Funimation has relased the first two episodes of Ouran in englisn on it's site.

    What do you guys think of the voice cast they chose?

    I personally think Vic Mignogna who does the voice of Tamaki...really does not fit the part...I mean it's not a horrible choice but not the best either.

    Haruhi's voice I think is cute and matches her.

    Kyoya, I did not like at all.

    Dunno, I prefer to stay away from english Dubbs.

    When I 'started' watching anime I began with the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya which I watched with the english dubb (but I downloaded a dual-audio version) and I thought that was pretty good, but mostly all the animes ive seen after that have been in japanese with engl subs (preferably fansubs) with the odd exception of ranma 1/2 which I couldn't seem to find a nice japanese audio torrent for. Imo anime is something you simply have to watch in japanese or it loses a lot of its appeal. But ofc. that's simply how I feel about the matter. I loved Ouran highschool hostclub in japanese, it was a good funny animation. The only real dislike I had for it when watching however was that the twins also sort of fell in love with haruhi, which imo didn't have to be.

    It was alright. I think Vic Mignogna was a pretty well fitted choice for Tamaki. I really couldn't think of another voice actor doing a better job than he did.

    Haruhi's was actually pretty nice. It didn't sound too girly which is a good thing in this case.

    Hunny's voice was just cute ^^. I really think they did a good job, but yeah >_> Kyoya's was too deep I thought. It made me cringe whenever he'd speak.

    A very beautiful set made by KP ^_^.I love you so much!
    Thank you Lawlietth <3 I love it

    That's exactly what I thought when I heard it. I was like, "OMG is that really going to be Tama chan's voice?"
    I stopped watching the clip after that, that part alone was weird enough for me. I mean I'm American, but just to hear those English voices for them instead of their original voices made me, like, I 'unno... kinda sick. lulz.

    The voices were terrible. The voices for Angel Cop were more effeminate. The voice for Honey was good though.

    Still somehow better than the J. dub..

    The dub is gonna ruin it. I've heard the voice actors' voices before and they SO do not fit the part.

    The voices...Didn't fit very well lol

    Personally, I think the subbed versions are much better. I was watching the first episode, and I heard Tamaki's voice and just stopped it lol. I fast forwarded and got to the Twins' voices and was like "Ah!! No way!!" I closed it down, and went to watch the japanese version to reassure myself that it would be okay lol.

    I'm not saying the voices are super bad (actually I am) enough to not buy the dubbed version. I think, if I watch it more in the dubbed version, I will be able to like it tons more....Maybe...

    I don't want to open new or old wounds, so I'll try not to put up a big fuss of why I dislike the English Dub of Ouran High School Host Club.

    I don't like it. It's not the worst dub I've ever heard since I've heard far worse when it came to other anime I used to watch in the last 10+ years but it had so much potential but I think Funimation seriously had me in a choke hold.

    Vic as Tamaki is horrible, sorry Vic fans as I like Vic as much as you do but I told you so, he kinda wrecked Tamaki for all. He made him sound gay? and we all know Tamaki isn't the least gay. Also Catlin Glass as director could had done so much with the series but I can't understand how you can mistake Chon for Chan??

    The songs make me cry. For one both Catlin and Vic sing and I wish they were singing the theme and ending song, it just didn't sound right that or maybe both songs should had been left in Japanese with English subtitles on the bottom. I'm just going to pretend that I never heard it.

    Haruhi sounds like a man with no personality. I realize that maybe this was to give the character a more masculine touch but seriously it didn't have to sound so...awful. >_< This actually makes my ears bleed. I will say that I like some of the voice actors such as Mori's and Kyouya's isn't bad but Hunny's and even Hikaru and Karou just don't sound anything as I would had liked.

    This is one series I just really, really love but will get the boxset anyway since I do appreciate hearing the bloopers, that's another good thing I suppose. It's still a series better heard in Japanese in my opinion.

    I disagree. I had to get used to Haruhi's deadpan delivery, but I managed.

    I think the voices worked fine for the characters. Nobody's voice bothered me other than dealing with the above-mentioned "deadpan"

    I think it was just a case of "this is not what we're used to so we don't like it."

    Personally, when I'm reading subs, the voices fade into the background and I can't really hear them as individuals, so I don't really have a preference for subs over dubs.

    Tamaki: His voice was okay. Vic Mignogna didn't exactly match but it was okay. I pretty much agree with Morning Grace on this one.

    Kyouya: I think his was perfect.

    Honey: His was okay. I wish it was a teensy bit more squeaky, but it's cute all the same.

    Twins: I like Greg Ayres as Kauru. I thought he was awesome. I'm not very sure about Todd Haberkorn as Hikaur, though. I think it'd be funny if they had the same voice. ;3

    Mori: Meh. He doesn't really talk, anyway. xD

    Haruhi: Her voice was okay. I wasn't too thrilled about it. I'm glad it was a voice that could be recognized as a boy's. Duh.
