Yay, a quick and easy one!
The subbed version is the superior by far. The dubbed version is quite possibly one of the worst examples of voice acting that I can find, just after the original cast for Akira. From the pronunciation of Genom – it’s GEN-um, not gen-NOM or jen-NOM, GOD – to just how ridiculously hard the actors are trying to sound like they’re taking the story seriously despite not understanding what they’re saying … it’s just terrible. And Nene’s voice actress is The Worst; all that comes out is just this high-pitched, half-ass attempt at recreating the iconic 80s style of speaking, aka the Valley Girl. I can’t even enjoy it from an “it’s so bad it’s good” perspective. Thank god for multiple versions on DVDs, y’all; if all I’d had was the dubbed version, this challenge would have never existed.
Which can either be good or bad, depending on your take of all of this?
