Lol, maybe it's just me but it looks like they did very well with the dubs (at least from the video).

Sounds sort of bad. But then again I'm not American so the accent always sound off to me. Hollywood actors and things must be trained pretty hard to develop semi-neutral accents(as in the don't really annoy other people).

Glad to see a trailer that a Brit can watch without jumping through hoops once in a while. I only watched maybe two episodes of the show for whatever reason, but I'll probably come back if it's on DVD/Bluray someday.

The dub seems okay.

Cue dozens of comments which either hate the show's guts or hate the dub.

General American is already as neutral as one can get. There's just no pleasing some people, it seems...

Narrator: "Kirito must slay demons in order to escape, but who cares about that? He's trying to get laid with a girl he met online. That's what people care about, right?"-If "Honest Trailers" did anime.

Sounds like the narrator from Ikki Tousen.

Anyway for some reason most dubs sound cheesy in English. Maybe it's the language barrier.

I'd like to watch this, simply so I could see the dub, but 2AM? No way.

I don't have a DVR, but... Maybe I'll figure out how to work my VCR? SAO on VHS would be pretty awesome.

A decent dub for a RAGE-INDUCING anime.

Doesn't seem fair to the voice actors that they have to work on something like this. Especially Cherami. She's wasting her talent here. Sad

EDIT: Also noticed that Keith Silverstein is in this. So this guy went from Monster, MONSTER, voicing one of the greatest villains in anime, to this trainwreck. That makes me even sadder. Crying or Very sad

2AM is way too late, but I'll see what I can do. The voices sound pretty good for the most part. I've never seen the show, but the plot looks really intriguing.

Not a big deal either way since no one can afford to buy all the Aniplex releases

I don't have cable anymore, and even if I did, 2 A.M. is way too late.

I guess I'll have to wait until someone in the UK licenses this if I ever want to check out the dub, because I ain't paying Aniplex's prices for a show that's supposed to only be half-decent. Confused
