Funimation wants your thoughts on sgt frog dub

Postby shona155 » December 31st, 2014, 1:30 am

I've tried to post comments three times and can't get anything, so I'll post them here:

There's already a wacky narrator in the original, and does do occasional fourth-wall gags--
It's the dubber's PANIC that they feel they "have" to cram gags in that's the slippery slope we're trying to avoid (and why the "Shin-chan" comparisons have been thick and heavy on all the fan boards)...Not quite CN's obnoxious "Lupin III", and definitely not "Samurai Pizza Cats", but more in the Pokemon Team Rocket neighborhood that can be abused too easily.
We've been pushing the votes to make sure Funi doesn't think they need to "sell" it to us just to get a broadcast deal--We're quite fans of it already, thank you, and we're just waiting for whatever concessions get us the subtitles.
