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.
