Dear Animax India,
Re: ‘Supernatural’ and ‘Romeo x Juliet’
Point the first: ‘Supernatural’
You’ll be done with it by next week at the rate you’ve been going (Monday to Friday!) which baffles me, btw, because one season is meant to last 6 months, and I know you know this, you broadcast all your other shows the way they’re meant to be watched.
And you know you’re going to have start with re-runs of Seasons 1-5 once S5 is done, right?
Because: let me assure you, withdrawal symptoms are not pretty.
So you’re not going to let me down as you did before with Kyou Kara Maou! and even Supernatural itself, when you broadcast just the first season in 2006 and forgot the rest, right?
Point the Second: ‘Romeo x Juliet’
Seriously, Animax, wtf happened? o_0
I know you have good VAs in your stable, I saw your English dub of Toward the Terra; I remember the guy who dubbed for Keith Anyan and he was good.
Similarly, I also saw your English dub of Red Garden and La Cordo D’Oro, which leads me to ask again: wtf, Animax India, wtf?
The woman who did Rose from Red Garden as Juliet? Seriously? And the guy who did the bassist from La Cordo D’Oro for Romeo?
Juliet, who is supposed to be a kick-ass secret revolutionary sounds like a whiny twelve year old, gah. No fire, no spirit, nothing. And Romeo was just as bad.
Now that I think about it, they should’ve had the guy who did Tybalt‘s voice to do Romeo. Who I suspect was the same guy who did Keith Anyan’s voice from Terra-e.
It’s sad, Romeo x Juliet looked interesting, and I like Shakespeare, especially his ‘Romeo and Juliet’, so I was fully prepared to enjoy this anime, but.
I honestly wanted to shut my ears in protest every time I heard the leads speak a line, argh, it was like fingernails to the blackboard in my soul, if I wanted to be dramatic, which I totally do.
I can’t bear to watch any more; I’m going to switch to the subs. :/
No love at all.
