Oh noes...

They added English audio.

They ruined the anime, don't touch that shit it's infested!

People who hate dubs for no reason whatsoever make me laugh


Because obviously dubbing the voice track absolutely ruins the anime, right? Never mind the quality of the voices nor how much they matched the character, it's in English so it must be bad. I'll then go ahead and base my opinion on 15-year-old productions, because they're entirely relevant to the current case.

shh, stop making sense


Disagreeing with me is like you saying "my opinion is wrong".

Update on April 3rd
According to Otaku Review's twitter, Section 23 (Sentai Filmworks' distribution company) will leave Angel Beats!' music in its original Japanese.

I don't get it, it will make no sense having it be english, and then japanese as soon as a song starts. It will be inconsistent and strange, a turnoff to even the casual viewer. That's not to say they should make english versions of all the songs, I'd just prefer if they just didn't dub it at all. Not because I'm a weeaboo, but it just doesn't make sense. Not to mention TK, there's no easy way to dub his voice while keeping any trueness to the original.

Sentai, I am disapoint. You used to be cool.

Oh wow, I only just saw this topic.

Now this is a series I would love to own on DVD. YES.

Oh, um, hey. I guess you must have been a bit out of it for the last decade or so, but in the current time that's not an all uncommon practise. No one has really complained about it, but all the weeaboos sure likes to complain when a dubbing company actually does go and do the vocals for an insert song. Japanese songs have been left intact in anime for a long time now.

Also, no, Sentai Filmworks was never cool. They're probably my least favourite licensor, considering their releases are pretty basic (production standards and misc. wise). But, I guess that's what happens when your old company (ADV) is ripped apart due to a botched deal, the quality of your releases suffer due to lower budgets and less connections.
Please stop.

Make him Portuguese or something. :P

I might watch the dub for fun, but I'm not expecting anything good. Clannad was a disaster after all.

Haha that would really be something. A portuguese TK would be so awesome.

Wow... terrible dub unfortunately -_-

I'm definitely gonna get the Bluray once it comes out. I'll just watch the subs I guess.

I actually liked the dub except for the fact they pronounced Yurippe "U-RIP-E" I'm glad it got a dub and its actually good cause I refuse to buy subbed only DVDs unless they have really good extras or I'm really desperate to get the series that I truly love no matter what which is never really the case. This is why Sentai is my least favorite company at the moment until they go back and dub some more of their series especially Shigofumi and Special A.

I actually don't really like the English Dub that much... But I'm only on Episode 1 so I'm going to give it a chance... Not sure if it can capture the emotion I felt at the end of the Japanese Dub.

Even though I've seen Angel Beats when it was airing last year, I'm thinking of getting it on DVD. But I'm kinda broke right now. :P So I'm interested in watching it in English.
I'm somewhat disappointed with Sentai right now because I just realized that they mostly dub fanservice, moe, and ecchi anime. Plus, they hardly dub the good ones! (mostly romance anime like Special A and Maid-Sama)

I think this dub is actually pretty good, minus the typical mis-pronounced stuff like yurippe.

I like it better than what Bandai did to K-On.

I'm depressed with the lack of love for TK.. only watched the first episode, but his lines are defiantly shorter.. while eating, it was the same, but far far more quite.

Special A, and Maid-Sama were shit! Thank god they didn't dub it. And they dub a variety of anime, from Caanan, to Clannad, all the way to Shigofumi. And of course they dub some ecchi (and I emphasize "some"), because god knows how much weaboo's love that shit, and are willing to shell out their moneyz for it. Oh the horror, a business trying to cater to the demand. Woe is I.
