They really need to let you fast-forward through that other stuff. I couldn't care less about this Brothers in Arms stuff. I thought it was just a few clips from the game, but then it has this interview with some guy I don't know or care about.

Also, their player is a slow piece of crap. I'm on a cable modem and it still has to buffer every ten seconds.

Anyway, nice video. I never realized how hot some of ADV's female VAs are (well, I already knew Luci was hot; the others I've never even heard of). Good lord, ADV's full of babes.

Hey, maybe they should do a guys swimsuit show. Not like I want to see Greg Ayres in swim trunks or anything. Rolling Eyes

And thumbs up for the Spriggan music at the end. Cool

Why not just follow the linkt to download? Then you can fast forward, rewind, save, etc...

Mind explaining this one, or are ad hominem posts enough for you? Rolling Eyes

It's not that easy to tell if someone's joking or not when there's no emoticons or any other sign of joking or sarcasm. Remember, this is text, not spoken dialogue. How do I know that WEKS isn't really some biased otaku purist who loathes all dubs and still has his his head in 1997? You're probably just covering for him. Rolling Eyes

Cover for him? Oh Yes, I'm covering for someone I don't even know.

Even if he didn't mean it as a joke, the comment came off a joke and if you have a sense of humor you can laugh it off for its stupidy. I have no problem with dubs but ADV has weak voice actor imo, and add the fact that they prefer hot girls (as mention in the interview), it's just comes off as humorous. Laughing Almost as funny complaining about fastfowarding when they provide a link for you to download the video. Wink

In other words, hired for looks, not talent?!? NO! Shocked

I don't think that was a very good segment. Just focused on the eye candy, not anything that an otaku would want to know about.

And there was only one woman interviewed that has any extensive portfolio of work? Or was that just what I read here? I didn't see the video show us much info of who did what.

The do the dubs in Houston, must be hard to get VAs that don't end sentences in y'all, y'know? Guess they just want to avoid paying scale for real actors and actresses.

Phbbbttt! Razz

I was going to make a thread a while back about the hottest voice actress, but it was on par with the nerd factor of this

About Richard Stallman wrote:
Hackers, geeks and nerds... were astounded when they got word that Richard Stallman was charging $3 for an autograph and $2 to get his picture taken... about 200 attendees protested the "Autograph Tax" by marching on the FSF booth and singing the Imperial March from Star Wars


Laughing There ARE NO LYRICS to the Imperial March song!

I met her at Otakon. She threatened to "Full Metal Punish" me if I didn't get the rest of FMP. I'm not sure if I want to take her up on that or not. Very Happy

She is pretty cute.

Well actually I DO loath all dubs (Cowboy Bebop is a notable but rare exception), not quite sure about that biased otaku purist part though.

I guess that this is once again proof that </sarcasm> tags or smileys should be obligatory. Sorry.

I'm not gonna tell you what you should and shouldn't like, but most dubs these days are done exceptionally well, if not decent. Saying that Bebop's dub is the only good one is a cop-out, since most purists say that. I bet that half the people who say that have never even seen Bebop (kinda hard, since AS always shows it). Razz
