Free! Eternal Summer Dub vs Sub

Before Free! Iwatobi Swim Club and Eternal Summer, watching summer anime for us Fujoshis isn’t that special. But after 2013 and 2014, summer was the blast! In 2015, FUNimation dubbed the second season of Free! And, here is my comparison review.

Free! Eternal Summer is one of my must watch anime of 2014. I spent all my time watching that anime event though I was facing an important exam that year. I gave the dub a try after finding out it was available via tumblr. I need to compare the dub and sub after watching 3 episodes of the dub and, here is my point of view.

The script:

Both of the English dub and original Japanese were awesome and unique. But, my vote goes to the original one. I do liked the engilsh dub for the jokes. I laughed more while watching the dub more than the sub.

Characters:

  1. Nanase Haruka~ I personally liked the dub!Haru more than the original Haru. He is more ‘normal’ and I could understand him easily. I wasn’t excepting Todd voicing him. Since in the original Haru was cool , calm and a kuudere. I enjoyed both Harus.
  2. Matsuoka Rin~ Original Rin for me on this one. Vic was cool but, it wasn’t my ideal dub version of Rin. I did enjoy both Rin but, Mamo did a better job in portraying Rin.
  3. Yamazaki Sosuke~ This is a hard one for me. Both Hosoya-san and Ian did a GREAT job on pulling this guy out. If I had to pick, I’d say the dub version would be my choice.
  4. Tachibana Makoto~ He is the reason why I want to watch the dub version, in the dub ; he is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch! My favorite VA. Although, fans were a bit disappointed about it. Yes, I know Suzuki Tatsuhisa did an AMAZING job as Makoto,  But, Johnny did great too. If I had to pick, I will choose the Original Makoto. His warm aura won me over.
  5. Hazuki Nagisa~ Out of topic, 50% off Nagisa is better. I don’t really enjoy the dub Nagisa in the series, I know that loud mouth noisy blond is a shota and… Shota are supposed to have high pitched voices. I give my vote to the Original Nagisa for this one. Overall Nagisas…. 50% Off Nagisa won.
  6. Ryugazaki Rei~ Oh boy… Another hard one…. Both J Micheal Tatum and Hirakawa Daisuke were great. I really like how the brought out Rei’s personality well. If I had to choose, I’ll say the Dub!Rei is my choice.

Okay, that’s about all my POV in the Dub vs Sub Characters for Free! Eternal Summer. If you guys have different opinion, just comment below. I love to know your perspective.

Shingeki no Kyojin Live Action Review

First things first, I am not a huge fan of Shingeki no Kyojin aka Attack on Titan; nor watched the series itself. So, please don’t flame this review. I know the story since I have friends who shoved this series down my throat.

I watched the Live Action adaptation of everyone’s (except for me) favorite , Shingeki no Kyojin and boy was I disappointed to the MAX!!! ━┻━┻; (┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻ WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?! THIS ISN’T SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN!!! HOW THE FUCK COULD MIKASA BE A SQUAD LEADER ?! I am not happy that they swapped out A LOT of awesome characters from the franchise.  Not just swapping characters, they also changed the name of the village were Mikasa , Eren and Armin grew up. (ノ ̄皿 ̄)ノ ⌒=== ┫
Next, the producers fucking skipped the training part of the 104th trainees. BIG MISTAKE! Why the hell that they ship Sasha and Armin together?! That’s not right. I feel bad for the underappreciated characters from the franchise. And this Shikishima person , you maybe badass but, Heicho would always be the best.
And… This would probably be Heicho’s reaction when he watched the movie.

Levi: Who the fuck is this guy?!
Minami (Me): He is your replacement for the movie.
Levi: What the fuck?! He’s horrible. * tches*
Minami: I know the producers said your name was too hard to pronounce and your height is… They tried to make it more ‘realistic’. But, SnK is fiction!! (இдஇ;
Levi:  Tch… * breaks my laptop * I don’t want to see that shit again.
Minami: ╥﹏╥ My laptop…
 

The only scene that saved the entire movie was the appearance of Titan Eren. Overall, I really disliked the movie. Argh…. THEY FUCKING CUT OFF THE ARMOR TITAN!!! GDI!!!! WHY?! And, there’s news that Hollywood is also planning to make a movie for Snk. I’m not gonna say anything. But, PLEASE PUT THE CHARACTERS IN THE FUCKING MOVIE NO FILLER CHARACTERS!!

Hakuouki Movie Part 1 & 2 Review

I know it’s kinda late for me to do this review but, I just had to. You guys probably knew that Hakuouki is my no.1 Otome game anime adaption and last year they had two movies released. I was slow in the news because my love for the fandom died down a bit and I was busy last year with school and military camp…. Now, without further ado, let’s get on to the review.

Part 1 of the movie was basically retelling the story of how Chizuru nearly got herself killed by 2 rasetsu and spent the night tied up in the Shinsengumi HQ. The producers also altered the story plot for that. Staff of Studio Deen, you can’t fool me…. I watched the series more than 5 times already… Please be more creative. Next, the animation was great. It had improved after the last one, Reimeiroku. I was surprised that the staffs chose to reveal Chizuru was an oni when she and Kazama met. That was original but, I honestly don’t like that… = 3 =  It pains me to watch Okita got tuberculosis and was destined to die again…  To sum up part 1, I am satisfied with the animation and music.

On to part 2, I lie if I say I don’t like the movie. I loved it. I cried while watching it. We finally knew why Harada did not chose to become a rasetsu.  .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·. You did the right thing my hubby. It was also similar to Hekketsuroku but with more emotional damage for us watchers. I did tried shipping Kazama and Chizuru in the movie; but one scene disappointed me to the max. ヾ(  ̄O ̄)ツ Warning, spoilers. Before Chizuru parted with Kazama, he stopped her with a hug. He told her he doesn’t want her to go, sadly Chizuru had to since she made a promise with Hijikata. Before letting her go, he hugged her. ノ ̄□ ̄)ノ ~┻━┻ I was expecting a kiss, it would have a bigger impact that way. Moving on, I am really heartbroken that Harada died…. 。・゚ヾ(✦థ ェ థ)ノ。゚・。 But, I love the ending…. Chizuru and Hijikata are going to live happily ever after.
