How do they do in the dubs? Do they actually sing the songs?


dub for normal conversations then µ's normal voices for singing. If you watched K ON! it will be pretty much like that
There was one weird part where Stephanie Sheh actually sings an excerpt from Fuwa Fuwa Time in Japanese. Though Bandai did dub the songs to include as extras on the original Blu-ray volumes for Season 1.

Volume 2 had Cristina Vee (Mio) singing 'Fuwa Fuwa Time' with Stephanie Sheh (Yui) doing backup vocals, Volume 3 had Stephanie Sheh singing 'My Love is a Stapler' with Vee doing backing vocals and Volume 4 was Sheh singing 'Brush Pen Ballpoint' with Vee doing backing vocals. They all sounded kind of amateurish but in a cute, endearing way. Plus the lyrics they came up with were pretty catchy.

But they won't be doing anything like that with Love Live. None of the foreign language dubs for so far have dubbed over the songs (Even though Tony Oliver, the ADR Director of the English version, has a background in musical theatre) so I'm thinking that Sunrise just straight up told everyone 'No, you can't dub the songs'. Guess it'd be difficult to sell CDs if the voices on the TV and the Blu-rays were different to the voices on the CDs.

Not to mention it'd make casting for the dub a nightmare. Getting 9 people who are good at singing, good at acting and on top of that have the right vocal range for the roles in question would be near on impossible. Adapting song lyrics into English and mixing the vocals of 9 different people in a way that sounds even half as good as the original would be no small task either.

QUALITY
the best bang for your buck right here <3
Bleach 3-in-1 Edition Vol.14 (incl. Vol.40, 41 & 42)
Monster Musume: Everyday Life With Monster Girls Vol.8
Toriko Vol.32

It has both the dub and sub, NICE!
Hell Verse producers tossed out Kubo's ideas so this movie is not as good as could be but still great.
Bleach Movies: Unforgiven 2-Pack (incl. Fade to Black & Hell Verse)

No, both season 1 & 2 of Love Live got a dub. Thats why they re-released season 1 but only a normal BD release not a re-release of the LE :/.
