    Anyway, Light's english voice is just fine. I imagine him as a whiny little bitch, so his voice fits. I do hope he can sound more menacing when he goes into Kira mode.

    The best dub i've ever heard was Cowboy Bebop's. Far superior to the Japanese version. Also, Trigun's dub was excellent. Really, to find a really terrible dub you'd have to go back to the 80's. Dubs nowadays are at the very least decent, with many excellent dubs coming out as well.

    Berserk also had a very good dub, better than the japanese version if you ask me....but thats not viz is it.....
    but this thread has quckly become into the whats the best subs ever

    lets get back on topic.

    Death Note has officially died for me.

    japanese version 500% all the way

    i cant believe how they can ruin great series with horrible dubs....i thought i had seen hell with naruto, but to be honest, i got used to the voices. i actually find yuri lowenthal a really good voice actor.....but ill never get used to light....never.

    5 out of 4 people have problems with fractions...

    I actually thought Ed from FMA was the WORST DUB POSSIBLE. He sounded like a little boy about go into puberty and his voice was cracking all over the place. ugh. talk about torture.

    Al's voice didn't disappoint tho, al's was okay....

    BACK TO DEATHNOTE

    the dub is terrible. omg. -_- no other way to put it.

    The irony is that Tsugumi Ohba never intended the manga to be made into an anime, i remember reading in an interveiw that it was never intentioned to be animated but stay a manga, look at it now! anime, manga, movies,
    the english i dont think could be mastered by any voice actor,
    i think because they would have to read the entire series and really get on par with say if they voice raito, they'd have to fit into his mindframe, and this is such a difficult topic in itself, he wasnt just one thing, he was a boy with a god complex, he was smart, but foolish etc etc, a voice is a vocal picture, the worng voice will ruin it, and so it has it seems.
    -Deathnote-
    Not just any egomaniac with a god-complex
    trying to challenge the god of metabolism and candy
    now is it?

    It just doesn't sound like the Light in the stories. He sounds too much like an angry, emo teen, which doesn't fit Light at all.

    I agree that original sound is the only way to go. I've watched all 31 episodes in Japanese with English subs and Light's voice is much more like I expected it to be.

    The English version just sounds wrong.

    Are you serious?

    I thought it was great. Nobody does better screaming while they power up than the japanese *gg*

    It sounds even worse because the Japanese versions were so spot on. L sounded pretty crappy as well, when you here him not using the weird voice when he says, "if you can". He sounds way to hard, L sounds far stranger (in a good way) in the Japanese version.
