Taihei's dubbed voice is funny as heck, in my opinion.

I saw the preview for Umaru's dub casting and to me Umaru sounds even more annoying than she does in Japanese.

Why couldn't Melissa Fahn play Umaru?
Why can't Melissa Fahn play everybody?

For me, the best voice acting is the original

I'll probably watch this one dubbed since my brother wants it.

Personally, I'm waiting for the Ushio and Tora dub cast announcement.

didn't watch the anime but if i do i may watch it with the dub just because of the yelling at the end but the guy voice is awful
I have to agree with you on that as well. I haven't heard the Japanese voices for this show but the guy's voice does not fit.....at all. He sounds way too old.

They translate "onii-chan" = bad translation.

There's a lot of Japanese cultural references in this manga/anime. I wonder how they will deal with it.
