Maybe I will have to watch it again. Sometimes I kind of flip flop. I can't remember if Gonzo worked on Last Exile or not, but I always felt their work was overrated. I do remember liking some of the concepts present in LE.

Maybe tonight I will rewatch a little bit. I honestly hope I don't like it, I don't want to do any impulse buying. ;)

I watch Last Exile a while ago. Good series I thought, though some of the english VA wasn't as great. I recommend it subbed personally.

I would recommend it on mute either way with closed captioning on.

Japanese voice acting is some of the most bland. With English and other language voice acting, regardless of whether it's bad, at least it sounds like they're trying. There's also little to no variation [in Japanese voice acting] -- like they use the same 4 or 5 voice actors for everything. Though, I think Japanese voice acting is so popular just because people like listening to what they don't understand.

I feel the opposite. There seemed to be a little to no effort in the English VAs for many, many years.  The fact that there were so few quality products, and the select few that were decent stood head and shoulders above the rest, is testament to this. The pool of English VAs also seems quite a bit smaller. It might help that I watch a wide varitey of anime era wise. I don't watch that much new anime.

I can't disagree with this. Sometimes I like this to help set atmosphere if the environment is supposed to be quasi alien -- sort of like Panzerese in PD. My preference for native language isn't solely a Japanese thing. If the movie is German, I prefer German. If it is French, I prefer French. I guess it is just a purity issue for me.

At the moment I'm watching Afro Samurai, Kyo Kara Maoh!, just finished watching Spee Grapher, Shakugan no Shana and GANTZ (again).

GANTZ


Have you read the Manga of GANTZ? Man I guess is completely better than the anime, and I´m reading the second phase right now. If you haven´t read it, I will give you a good advice and give it a look.

Sound like Hollywood only got 13 scripts.

Bah, maybe the lack of understanding Japanese made Heat become so.
My advice: Watch more anime, especially mechas ones, like GGG or Gurren-Lagann, the VA are..........gods.

Sorry, I'm not a Japanophile, so I refuse to waste anymore of my time on such things.

And, I hate mechs. I hate anything to do with mechs.

So watching animes and adoring the japanese make me become a Japanophile huh ? That's fine with me, considering the goods and entertaining moments they offered.

I think it's just meant to refer to people who love all things that come from Japan for that reason alone, not on actual merit.

Thought that went without saying if someone would be totally blinded to the bad.
