"The uploader has not made this video available in your country."

Sigh...

Saw the clip, and it sounds great! I haven't been riding the hype train like a lot of people but I will be looking forward to seeing everyone else's voices.

Wow... totally screwed up Levi's personality.

Edit for second viewing: Wow, screw it up BADLY. They got absolutely NOTHING right for Levi's personality. Levi does not raise his voice, speaks mostly in monotone, and does NOT make dumb jokes. Hange's pretty bad as well. Her dialogue was OK, but the tone of voice was completely wrong. Hange thinks of titans as children, so she speaks in a disturbing motherly tone. This dub gave her a mocking tone, when she would NEVER mock a titan. Pathetic, Funi....

Not sure what country you're in or even if it will work, but the Hola! add on for Chrome may let you get around that...

Personally, I'm giving the dub and everything about it a complete miss. I like this series enough that I don't want to cringe over a weird casting choice or off-key performance.

(To be clear, I have nothing against dubs in general)


And BTW, to people who can't watch the videos and haven't gotten the memo yet: Funimation only services North America. So don't be confused - unless you're in Canada. (Then you can rage all you want.)

Oh, sorry. I couldn't watch this clip, cause I'm not in the US, so I watched an older Funimation clip posted on Youtube.

Isnt this the first clip ever posted? If there was an "older" one, wouldnt it not even be from the official funimation dub? Post a link of the one you're talking about.
EDIT: Okay, nevermind my post. Didn't realize that there are indeed other official clips out there.

I don't think we're allowed to post youtube links on the forums. Send me a PM, and I'll link you to the clip. It has Funi's logo, and the actors are Hanji - Jessica Calvello. Levi - Mathew Mercer, Petra - Caitlin Glass

Yeah, because dubs are complete imitations of the original. Way to be pathetic, Funi Rolling Eyes Whatcha think about this clip?

Nothing, I can't watch it. And while the voices don't need to sound the same in a dub, they DO have to keep to the original character, not make up a new personality.
