Will have to take your word for it :p

Dutch (flemish) dub is pretty good too, but still prefer atla in english'

LOL, yeah. Turkish does not sound like Arabic. It sounds a bit similar to Finnish as sound. This could give you an idea.

I think it could be related to good diction too. Best voice actors are the actors with traditional theatre training, they almost all have better diction than the rest. But then diction would change according to the language too. Nah...scratch that.

Even if you are a sub over dub kinda weeb, please watch this in dub. The english voice actors are so great and do such an amazing job.
Hearing the japanese actors speak broken english during moments that they are supposed to come across as badass, however, just doesn't work.
Thank you!  I generally prefer dubs, but it's very much situational and I dislike it when people take an absolute stand on it (I get "man of one book" vibes from purists sometimes).   Sometimes, the dub is rubbish and subs are the way to go.  Sometimes, it's the other way around.  Ideally, I prefer a quality dub that's faithful to the source material, though that's not easy or even possible with new releases.

Florida Man strikes again. Running for congress, he claims that Dragon Ball Z is "anime porn." Of course, this is a "top issue" for him. Not Covid-19, not school shootings, and definitely not black lives, but anime.

Sword Art Online:  Players are horrifically trapped in a MMO and their VR headset may kill them if they die in the game.

Gun Gale Alternative:  VR headsets are perfectly safe but psychotic players are likely to enact a suicide pact if they lose.

Man, these gamers are just determined to die.  -_-  Whatever happened to having some nice, wholesome fun?

Don't forget .hack//sign: A boy who is really a girl (maybe trans?) leaves her body rotting in a state of coma, unable to log out of a VR game due to real life sucking really bad and her rejection of that reality. Relatable.

I've been watching a new anime, The Promised Neverland.  Finished it off in 24 hours, lol.  That should give you a general idea of how much I liked it.

It's one of those anime that you can't even google without seeing major spoilers, so just take my word for it and go in blind.  I can almost guarantee that the first episode alone is enough to get you hooked.

If you assume that it's a kid's show based on the above image, guess again.  I can't say any more without spoiling the surprise.  ::)

It'll have me "hooked" huh? Pun intended? I'm guessing it has something to do with Peter Pan, given the title.

Wanted to give that never land show à go. Will do so, but kind of forgot about it finishing up rwby s7, then I'll put it on the list for shows to watch after the gf has headed off to bed.

On a fun note, though I know many of you might not coïncider it animé. She's promised to give atla a go. Hope she'll like it.
Strangely, she was fan of the movie.
