Okay, haven't posted anything here in a long time sorry. ^^; This is kinda like an extra to my first review being Kuroshitsuji.
This anime was dubbed by Funanimation which is said to be one of the best dubbing companies. Personally I hate pretty much all dubs with a passion, anime is Japanese thing so it should be in Japanese.
Kuroshitsuji is my favorite anime/manga at the moment so I was curious to see if they did a decent job or just totally ruined it. I...hated it. DX I've seen lots of positive reviews online but I really wanna state my opinion too.
Maybe it's because English/British isn't my native language but it sounds so...unnatural.
My favorite character in the series is the Shinigami Grell Sutcliff, in the original version he was voiced by Jun Fukuyama. I really love this voice actor, he did a great job on other character like Lelouch from Code Geass.
His English voice actor was a new face so I was really scared since I can understand that Grell is hard to dub. I think the voice wasn't sexy at all, it sounded so...cracky and creepy. It sounded like the evil guys in disney movies or American cartoons. DX I don't understand why everyone loves his voice so much, it makes me want to curl up in a corner and bawl my eyes out.
Another character they ruined was Undertaker, he sounded like a pirate...in a very bad way. DX
Sebastian was meh, not horrible but not great either. The same goes for Ciel.
The only good voice was Madam Red in my opinion, she was really good, almost as good in japanese, too bad she only appears in a few episodes.
If you have seen the English dub please comment stating your opinion on it.
