God those Japanese dubs are horrible.
And the sad thing is most of the voices sound the same....
Whats really stupid is they couldn't take the extra time to put in JAPANESE MUSIC..... I bet the people who did watch this dub was wondering what the hell the music was.....
Like here is a good example.....
G1 Season 3 Commercial
YouTube - Transformers Commercial Ultra Magnus & Galvatron G1
YouTube - Transformers Commercial: Predacons & Predaking
YouTube - Transformers: Trypticon vs Defensor
YouTube - Transformers Metroplex
YouTube - Transformers triple changers commercial
YouTube - Transformers 2010 Opening
They couldn't even bother to put new animation.... Yes, this animation is cool but it shows how much effort they put in to Transformers....
At least Victory was when they started to get good at this stuff.... And made their own stuff up.
AND NO, MASTERFORCE JUST TOOK DESIGN FROM THE POWERMASTER.... And at least Powermaster Optimus Prime was not a walking dead body that was controlled by humans.
Basically what I'm saying, it took them a few years to get transformers right.
Of course not,I cannot tell all dubbing is bad that is why i said "some other series". I know there are dubbed series that are great, but there will always be "something" that makes original series in their original language waaaaaay better.
That's not always the case, either. Have you ever seen Samurai Pizza Cats?
The economy can affect that.
Which episode was this:
that was the episode (can't think of the title) but it had to do with cosmic rust I remember that much
I just want to point out that Princess Mononoke in English is like a bajillion times better than Princess Mononoke in Japanese. And I am typically a very "it's best in it's original language" sort of person.
And yeah, the Japanese dub of G1 Movie and Seasons 1-3 is pretty HORRIBLE
Masterforce is infinitely times better than Victory in terms of content cartoon-wise.
Don't forget Beast Wars, and them trying to shoehorn Animated into the Bayverse.
I haven't watched all of it to disagree. But... I will say that the concept was off the Transformers theme a bit and winds up making some transformers fans not like it because of it. And you wonder things like "why is he DRIVING when he can turn into a transformer."
Only thing Masterforce was better in was Animation but then again that carried over to Victory...
Victory went back to the meaning of transformers.... AUTOBOT VERSE DECEPTICONS.... Not Human Autobots verse Human Decepticons.... Who yell "GOD ON".....
Most TFs in series were humans who controlled dead robots and gave them minds.... Seriously.... They are millions of out series to do something like that too.... But why transformers....
Tell me if I'm right, its "Transformers, robots in disguise", Not "Humans in robots that are in disguise".... The reason why I like transformers is because they don't have humans inside them to control everything they do, they have their own personality.
And yes, I do like shows like Gundams, Mazinger Z, and shit like that, but Transformers should of stayed as the one exception of not having humans as the "brain" of the robot.... At least the Gobots didn't do something like this....
Even the theme was shitty in Masterforce....
I find it better than the American version where having a power master uh power up the Transformer somehow. And hey, they did the same exact thing in the second to last series of Braves and I accept them completely.
Mandarin Soundwave is, all on his own, legitimization for dubs in any language.
YouTube - Soundwave (Dubbed in Mandarin)
Very opera like (Parvotti).
What episode was that?
Ahahaha. The cantonese version of Soundwave is terrible. The synthing causes him to be near unintelligible.
Oh god, that was terrible.... xD
Oh god.... Chinese is worse..... At least Starscream sounds more like Starscream then the Japanese screamer.... But this is pretty bad!
Basically the voice sound more different but there is no emotions or their is fake emotions in the dialogue....
And Soundwave is a singer again..... xD
YouTube - Transformers - Decepticon leader fight... in Chinese!
Why, why, WHY do people keep flooding the internet by saying "Japanese voices are better"?! I mean yeah, sure, it's the original language. But to me, most of it is cringe-inducing. Let's just say, I do prefer Soul Eater in Japanese. But when it comes to Bleach, I don't like most of the Japanese voices. All women sound like 10yr. old girls, and all the men have high-pitched voices too.
I'm not even gonna think about watching Japanese Transformers.
