I hope they have the same ending as the sub version. Do you think they might sing it also? :mellow:

They've even got a VA for Egypt; Scott Sager.
I've never really seen him voice anything but on myanimelist.net it says that he is also the ADR director for Hetalia.

Anyone else love the awkward with Finland and Su-san in Hetalia: World Series episode 17? :3


@Ashori
Ah, thankyou! ^ ^

@Aphex
I doubt they'll sing it also. They've kept so many other Japanese themes/endings.

Well, for those that are even more curious about the dub, Funimation has posted the first four episodes on their video portal. Dear god, I'm going to love this dub to death. XD

I'mma throw in my two cents here. There are things I like about the dub and things I don't like about it. Anime News Network's podcast basically hated all over the dub, but I don't know if I agree with them. Some of the new jokes they threw in, I laughed (I personally laughed at the reference to the "Charge of the Light Brigade routine" line). However as I'm sure some of you have heard, there's a biiiig controversy over the beeped out joke in the released Romano clip. Some of the jokes I think were in, shall we not say, poor taste, but were just not right for Hetalia. At the SAME time, I oftentimes found the original Japanese show almost too cutesy for what Hetalia is (a show about stereotypes, during WAR. For god's sake, the show took WW2 and other wars and made 'em FLUFFY). Some of the stuff in the Japanese version were just too "squeeee~", but some of the jokes in the subbed version are just sort of, "Oh..."

All in all, from what I have seen of the dub clips, I really like it. ANN says the accents are horrible, but I almost think that they're supposed to be. I really didn't think they were THAT bad (the only one I don't like is China, and Germany's sometimes bugs me because it slips in and out of Germanness), but I LOVED France's and Russia's made me laugh.

Is Hetalia "mean spirited", as described by ANN? Perhaps. But show me a show revolving on stereotypes that isn't, to someone, offensive (heck, I'm sure there's some American out there saying "I DON'T TOUCH A HAMBURGER THAT'S MEAN", but that's what other countries think of when they think of Americans, the same goes for Americans thinking of other countries). Are some of the jokes off color? Yes. Is this sort of what people thought Hetalia would be before they watched Hetalia? Yeeee-maybe. Can't say for sure until I see the whole thing. The Romano clip on YouTube makes me think so, but the France clip, and Russia clip, and America clip, don't.

The TL;DR Version: I like the dub. Some of the jokes are semi-off color, but I will not be boycotting it, and I will have to see the whole episodes/series before I make up a decision. If I really hate it, that's what the subbed version is for. I am just glad it got dubbed, and am excited to see what the whole series will look like when viewed in full.

Stuff I quoted: Controversy over jokes and ANN podcast (Hetalia starts somewhere around 4 minutes or so).

OTL sorry for rambling, I've just been reading a lot on this and it kind of makes me want to rant to someone.

I never listened to the ANN podcast about the Hetalia dub because when I listened to the first time they talked about Hetalia on a previous show, they acted all butthurt that it was so popular. I mean, I'm not the number one Hetalia fan and am not big into, but I like it and I found them being all grumpy about it stupid.

And I personally love the dub. I think it's funny that the accents are that terrible. Not my problem or Funi's that the ANN guys can't appreciate it for what it's worth, imo.

I never listened to the ANN podcast either, but someone brought it up so I thought I should listen to it. I found myself in disagreement the whole time.

I think so too. I think the accents are adding to the humor of it. And I didn't really find them all THAT terrible. Bring on the dub, I say! I fell in love with France's voice the moment he showed up.

Especially the accents, and the flying mint bunny. xD
