Well, I can definitely see a bit of over-acting in this one, I really fail to see how it is anyone worse than many typical anime dubs. Hell, I think FMA had as much, if not more overacting in it’s dub, and that one often gets much praise heaped upon it. I would have to say that overacting is common problem, regardless of who does the dub.
Personally, while I can see the flaws in this dub, it still remains a good dub in my opinion. One of the things I most enjoyed about it, was the fact is that all the leads were somewhat lesser known Texaz VA’s. You didn’t have Chris Patton, Lucy Christian, Monical Rial, or Vic Mignogna as the main characters. Let’s face it, there was a time where nearly every dub coming from Texas had one of the same eight actors as a lead in it, whether it be from Funi or ADV. And while I may really enjoy those actors, it does tend to make the dubs stale after a while (see many of Funi’s recent dubs.)
Unfortunately, with the long pause in ADV/Seraphim dubs, I have to wonder how many of those “lesser knowns” will still be around. I know some of my favorite actors, such as Jessica Boone, have already moved on. I just hope that whatever they are working on now, we will continue to get diverse casts from them in he future.
