Rising of the Shield hero/ Obsessed 🤣

Recommended Posts

I am kind of sad I cannot keep up with you guys, due to the dub being two episodes behind.

Who knows, @Seshi. The only thing I am aware of if that blessed/holy equipment is supposed to show in the future, mostly likely season 2, if I had to guess.

I was watching dub too, and had to switch to sub just for the sake of keeping up. You could do it, presumably.

New equipment!! I’ve been waiting to see some more rare equip items.. the ones Naofumi made for the girls were kinda like.. meh, okay that’s neat but nothing special. 

I think that since he went through the trouble of learning how to forge by hand and craft medicines and even the trouble he went though on traveling in that wagon, he was able to gain a far more realistic view of the world than the other heros, so I’m not disappointed that he didn’t learn the shortcuts til now.

Yes, I could, but Shield Hero is one of those anime I would like to follow along with, even when I have a headache.

You cannot do that through subs, unless reading does not bother you during a headache.

You know what. Since Seshi and Ohiotaku are both watching the sub version, I'll just watch the dub so we have two people who watch the sub and can comment before, and two people who watch the dub and can comment afterwards and also look what the sub people commented. So I have watched episode 22 in sub, and will wait for the next one as a dub.

Sounds like a good idea, though I hope we do not get things mixed up.

Good thing I’m posting ahead, I never look at the episode number so I’d be lost for sure 🤣

@brycec Nah I don't think so. I prefer the dub, and I also think it'll be interesting for the others to look in retrospect what we wonder will happen. I actually had thought about asking if everyone has access or can watch the sub before, but forgot.

There are a few anime dubs that are fine, like cowboy bebop and ghost in the shell. Other then that, some reason its really hard to find good voice actors. People have to understand when you are voice acting you have to have emotion when you are acting and talking. You can't just talk like a robot. Just raising your voice louder, isn't acting.

I think this goes for any work of animation and language.

However, I am sure this is a problem in Japan too, though many of us would not be able to tell so easily, with it being in another language.

Also, do not forget that people express emotion in different ways, so the emotion given has to match what the character expresses.

I think the dub for Rising of the Shield hero is exceptional

@Serge heartless have you seen the dub on Slam Dunk? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

its more of a joke. It turned the whole anime into something parody worthy

I think the Shield Hero dub is quite good too.

I have not seen the Slam Dunk dub myself, but I was thinking of using the Ghost Stories dub as an example.

I think its just people wanting to be cheap and not hire real voice actors, and instead they think they can save money by hiring some people to voice act who have never voice acted before. You can tell the voice actors in cowboy bebop and ghost in the shell had some talent

That or they never acted in any capacity before, since I hear that many, though not all, voice actors have had experience in theater or something similar.

The cheap move makes sense though, as companies are trying to reduce their own expenses, though with the prices Aniplex of America charges, they can probably hire better actors than those who do dubs for people like FUNimation and Sentai Filmworks, who aim for a bigger audience than Aniplex.

I don't really watch sports animes, but anime dubs always have been bad since the 80s. It reminds me of like Voltron or speed racer, and had trash for dubs. Though a lot of American cartoons don't have this problem.

I was irritated with CPM’s dub of one of the Yu Yu Hakusho movies, but dubs have gotten pretty good lately though, like the Yu Yu Hakusho dub, and more recently Shield Hero.

I didn't think the Yu Yu Hakusho dub was good also, I didn't watch the OVA yet. Though the old Yu Yu Hakusho dubs were trying to be more comedy, then serious, and completely changed what they said. You know Americans can't handle cussing at all. Even though kids cuss all the time at school.

Americans are getting better at accepting that, but the Japanese do not cussing too often, if at all. From what I have heard, it is more of how things are delivered than the words themselves. Most of the profanity found is from the translations, though profanity does not really add things all the the time.

Have you ever seen profanity used improperly? I certainly have, just like I have seen instances in which it can be used to bring out emotion fully when it is important. How often it is used in every day life and how it is used really kills any meaning that it really had in my eyes.

I see. I kind of view the CPM dub bad though because it was not just the voices, but the way things were recorded or implemented does really help immerse me in the thing. Yes, they were quite old dubs, but CPM's dub in pretty much everything, except maybe translation accuracy, which I cannot judge too well, of Slayers was a whole better.

As for the OVA stuff, it really was not that enjoyable, since some of them I saw ended up only be recap stuff.

We'll try. I was going to suggest it if they continued, since there were things they did not seem to get that I did not feel like getting into here.

I think shield hero would have been better with out the lolis. Some reason lolis tend to be annoying in every anime. 

Sadly, I think that is like that because, Shield Hero, like other anime made today, panders to the average otaku, since that is where their money comes from.

It is a good series, and does not try to create a fantasy that certain other anime do, but they are still doing it make money.

im not sure about that, seeing how boku no hero, one piece, attack on titan are some of the biggest animes, and don't have lolis. Shield hero would have been fine without them.  Also I don't like the idea of making underage characters who look like they are 10 sexual. Its just as bad as the incest animes

New visual for Shield Hero 
sauce: shieldhero-anime.jp

Now I've never read the source material but I'm curious about this new character's alignment. He looks like he could be involved with the waves somehow. I'm content to wait and find out. :)

I thought the new character was going to be an awesome new party member for Naofumi 🤣 boy I hope I’m not wrong. He’d make a formidable opponent no doubt.
