OPD pg32:The Voices..... by GarthTheUndying OPD pg32:The Voices..... by GarthTheUndying
The following is my summary of the dreadful voice acting of "4Kids". Granted, I didn't cover them all, but I got 50 or so more pages to crank out. I just don't have the time. If I did comment on ALL the crappy voices in "4Kids"' version of OP, it would probably take ten more pages.

Did you just insult Christopher Sabat. Because if so, then THIS REVERENCE WILL BE PASSED DOWN THE ARMSTRONG LINE FOR GENERATIONS!

It's cool, though. Your opinion. I just completely disagree

Right, no-one insults Christopher sabat, he is just too badass

as awful as it is, Sanjis dub voice makes me laugh at how bad it is.makes a pretty cool character sound like an idiot with a sinus congestion.
Bananatect Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
whenever me and my friends read the viz manga, where zoro is called "zolo" we hear it in our heads as "zor-o!" in a very posh, snooty voice.
cuz we're retarded like that.

I couldn't help it; I laughed throughout the entire page.
Fishypaste Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
Yeah, the reason that I was so scared of One Piece in the first place, anyway, were the voices.

But, while they got the wrong voice actor for pretty much every single character, they got the PERFECT guy for Mr. 3! But, you know what?

THEY CUT OUT LITTLE GARDEN!! %^Q#%%^E$&$%%#!! *punches computer*
yournamehere8888 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2010   Writer
Yeah, their dubing performance was disgracefull. And that comes from someone who likes hearing different accents (as long as they fit, somehow.)
SnowKuki Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh my gosh, I can't believe I watched the dub first. Ugh! I'm so embarrassed!!! The Japanese voices are WAY WAY WAAAAAY better than the English ones. I don't want to remember the dub.....
Williefleete Featured By Owner May 30, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
i think i copped the funimation dub for the first 91 episodes cause i dont remember half the voices being like that, i switched to subs after that
joined4commenting Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010
this comic is for the 4kids dub.
the funimation one was much better : D
but the subs are always best *.*
Ultimalice Featured By Owner May 19, 2010
T think the reason Zoro got a good 4KIDS voice was that the actor did the english voice of Guts from Berserk (BEST MANGA EVER! Alongside One Piece of course).

Honestly, the only 4kids voice I liked was Crocodile's. If they gave him that voice so long as they didn't fuck up the dialogue, there wiuldn't have been any problems with him for me.

When Sanju says that line in the pic, he kinda looked like Kitaro from "Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro"!

Well, at least Zoro's voice doesn't sound so bad.... But what's the point in changing his name ZOLO?!?!?!? I hate 4kids >_>
JiaLi Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2008
ugh, Sanji's english voice actor made me wanna shoot my eardrums out -_-
and did you notice how just about every single villain was voiced by the same guy?

About Hachi... Yeah, he sounds retarded, because he IS a bit thick...

But yeah, Nami sounds like a bitch, Sanji's got a stuff nose, and...

You know, he's actually refered to as the "Squeaky voiced teen" in the series! XD
SisterHipster Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008   Traditional Artist
Wha-? Come on! Mihawk's voice is cool since he's based off of a French pirate. I thought Nami's voice made her sound mature and sure of herself. Zoro's voice half decent? ITZ DE SHMEXEH!:drool:
GarthTheUndying Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008

It would have been cooler if Mihawk had a more subtle french accent instead of that snooty one. I also prefer Nami's FUNImation voice.

Nice limric, BTW!
Fireydude12 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008  Student Artist
Why are you taking that evil dubbing company's side, those bastards ruined our favorite anime shows, just think about what they would have done to Bleach. *barfs* Sorry about that, I just visualised the images.But seriously, 4Kid's dubbing is so bad that I'd rather get raped by a pack of rabid wolves than watch their version of One Piece.
SisterHipster Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2008   Traditional Artist
Well, I have an easy going personality. If it wasn't for 4Kids showing One Piece on the tube, I wouldn't have ever heard that there was some Mister Fantastic wannabe strawhat kid wanting to have an ADVENTUUUUREEEE. But I do certainly admit that they did some stuff wrong in the series such as too much cutting and editing.
Personally, I did not like Ussop and Sanji's voice. My mother watched the 4Kids version on the Baratie episode with me and she hated Sanji's voice the most. Yeah, Robin's voice in 4Kids was totally unnecessary and I prefer her Funimation/Japanese voice over anything.
Zoro's new voice for Funimation makes him sound too old (he's like 19 and the make him sound like he's 30). Now, the Japanese voice to me makes him sound like he has a stuffy nose and too old, too. 4Kids met him in the middle and he sounds like his age (though his lines are kind of ooc in the Japanese). Oh, let me go on about my second fav. , Vivi. Now Vivi sounds all whiney in the Japanese and they HAVE to match it in Funimation. I prefered her 4Kids voice over both of theirs because she sounded wise and noble to me. I know they had lines changed in 4Kids as well, but some of those lines were pretty funny. I really don't need todo or rebuttal against
Guys you get too bogged down about everything that's wrong with something and not everything that's right. Be open-minded. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing Funimation or the Japanese, neither am I on 4Kids' side. I'm just trying to put on the table possible information that not everything is THAT bad.
I'm not a hardcore Japanese or anime fan because I don't like that there are other fans who are so snoody about dubs not being right or people putting other fans down because they watch an anime certain way.
CartoonyStuff Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Are you kidding? Whoever voiced vivi in the 4kids dub had no acting experience whatsoever! Its bland, boring, and robotic.
Fireydude12 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2008  Student Artist
I seriously recall hearing Nami's english voice, it sounded like Linsay Lohan throwing a tantrum. The one who did Mr.2's voice I have to admit was stupid because he wasn't even black, Hatchi's voice was probably chosen because he was depicted in the original anime as dimwitted, and don't even get me started with Hawkeye's stereotypical voice ugh..
Leaviel Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
Sanji's is still the worse.... *shudder*
GarthTheUndying Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
I feel Luffy's was the worst. My ears still bleed whenever I think of that voice.....
Leaviel Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
ah well, Sanji's voice makes me want to shoot someone... like his voice actor... in the trachea... *is totally not violent at all*
spikykittens Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
I don't know, Funimation has a habit of bringing in a lot of american actors in, and its a tiny bit annoying when they pass up on some really fitting voices and accents for certain characters. I Could seriously imagine Tom the shipwright with a glasgow accent (ship building on the clyde) and Brooke with a british accent ("Tally-ho" style is optional).

I think that some European accents would work for one piece. Considering how most pirates came from Europe, and a lot of the pirates one piece characters are based on come from either britian, france or spain, it would be good to have that context with some of the voices.

on the other hand, this is coming from a man who thinks that Gazille from Fairytail would sound good with a deep, gravelly, cockney accent.

I did like Zoro's 4Kids voice but that was it.
Thank You Funimation!!! You're our savior!
