Well I know this anime has long since finished and the manga is dragging its ass right now.

But it just so happens that Viz FINALLY annouced the English Dub VA's for Yuuki, Zero and Kaname, so I HAD to put it up.

The leading roles will be played by;

Yuuki Cross - Mela Lee
Kaname Kuran - Ethan Murray

and the most....SUPRIZING of them all.....

Zero Kiryu - Vic Mignogna O___O

(Seriously?...I can't even picture his voice as Zero...hopefully he will prove me wrong and do some sort of tone he hasen't already.)

Further cast announcents have not been made.

^ I know! I didn't see it coming either. o___o;;

Yes Vic can sound like a 17 year old, but his voice is kinda to high pitched for someone like Zero. If it was deeper then maybe he could pull it off. So we shall see.

Plus I looked up Mela Lee, you know her as Rena (Higurashi) and Shinku (Rozen Maiden). Personally neither of those would fit Yuuki, but I think she she could do something that kinda a mix of both, then it would be good.

Ethan I have only heard in one role, and that was Franz from Gankutsuo. The voice actually has the right tone, but it sounds to young. So we will have to see for him as well.

I heard the first episode of the dub is out, is it true? If so does anyone know where I can watch it. ^^' I'm kinda scared to see how the dub turned out to be honest...

@Oz:

Yes the dub is out. You can try it if you want. I'm gonna post my thoughts on it so far.

------------

Here ar my thoughts on VK english dub so far (Episodes 1-4).

VOICES:

+ Yuki's voice makes me cringe...it sounds like a bad fandub. Japanese vioce > English voice.

+ Kaname's isn't bad, but he sounds kinda...dead/sleepy. If they change that, then it would be better.

+ Zero's voice I actually don't mind as much as I thought I would have. I like the way he sounds when he talks normally, but...when he yells...Vic's particular tone doesn't really do well then.

+ Chairmen's voice I'm good with. Granted it's not as spazzy, but its still good.

+ For the other Night Class students, I'm actually ok with most of them. The only one I'm questioning is Ichijou's right now.

ACTING:

+ I found that everyone has VERY dry and shitty acting. Everyone except for Zero (seem's like Vic's experience with over 90+ shows help there). Though the only one in terms of acting that bothers me the most is Yuki. Hopefully like most shows the acting will improve over time.

TRANSLATIONS:

+ It's been to long for me to tell just how accurate the translations were, but from what I remember its not that far off. Thats a plus. However the way they say some of the names is weird, but that usually changes once they get more practise in a role. So hopefully that will. But I'm not gonna be picky on it untill I've seen at least 5-10 episodes.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:

+ The japanese is better. No question. However the dub isn't "horrible". But it is certianly not going on the list of well done dubs. If it wants to be, they need to improve the acting first and foremost above all else. That alone would do wonders for the dub.

+ Personally I think Viz should stick to doing Shounen. If they want to bring out a Shoujo anime. Send it to Canada like you have with the rest. At least they know how to dub a Shoujo, and do a good job of it. That or let Funi take the lisence.

+ Overall I'd give the VK dub a...2.75/5 --- Based ONLY on episodes 1-4. If they want a high score, they need to improve the acting.

@Will-

It took me a while to find it, but here you go:

For me, the dub is kinda 'meh' so far based on the one episode I've seen (that's all I can find). I love Yuki and all, but her English voice is making her some what annoying to me. I was really scared to see what they might have done to Aido...I actually like his voice. So that's good. Vic isn't bad as Zero either. It just kinda sounds a little off when he's yelling.

I hope I can get it on dvd to show it to my VK obsessed friend. XD When I told her the dvds came out today over the phone, she squealed. Hmmm my birthday is coming up in about a week so maybe I can give hints to family and friends for a possible present~ 8D

Ugh, I hate Yuki's voice. DX< Its very... unfitting. also, Zero's voice when he yells... D':

Despite that, I thought most of the other voices were good. c:

So that makes it four of us that don't like Yuki's voice. XD I really hope it gets a little better by each episode or we'll just have to get used to it.

I'm actually a fan of Kaname's Japanese VA, Kishio Daisuke-san. I really like his voice to the extent that I listen to the episodes of the Cross Academy Broadcasting Club Radio (it's like a weekly radio show where the DJ's are the male members of the Nigh Class and Zero from the Day Class) that Kaname's in almost every night.

I would probably describe Kaname's Japanese voice as how his Japanese VA described it.

"Kaname talks so sweet that he has just endless admiring and praising words that makes you...vomit. "
(In a good way IMO) xD

Oh yes, it just sounds so cool, intelligent and lastly, sexy~ even the sigh sounds sexy! hahaha

----

Anyways, I'm currently watching the episode 1 of the English dub. Seeing this thread got me into curiosity of checking it out.

Anyways, here are my comments so far with the dub:

Yuki = it was less high-pitched compared to the Japanese original. But I think it worked out well with Yuki's character as well. I still need to get used to Yuki calling Kaname just 'Kaname' rather than 'Kaname-senpai'

Zero = I'm loving how his English VA is dubbing him! it works really well! Kudos to Vic-san! he did a really good Zero! xD

Kaname = I had high expectations over the dubbing since I pressed the play button of Episode 1 but as soon as he came out, my expectation went down the drain with a huge sigh with it. His Kaname sounds too... dead as in ...dead. Kaname is calm and sexy, but definitely not flat and dead.

fox breakdown

Aidou = It was OK, but I miss the flirty-ness in Fukuyama Jun's voice.

Shiki, Akatsuki, Ichijou, Chairman Cross' and Rima's voice were also OK...I don't have anything much to say about their voices at the moment but they were alright.

^^;;

Anyways, I really have to agree with this. Some parts of the translations are really weird but I also do understand that some Japanese words are hard to translate in English. Like, how do you say 'senpai' in English?

As for the acting, yes, it's a bit dry, and flat, and dead. I'd give it a 7/10 and 8.75/10 for Vic-san for pulling off a really good Zero.

^^;;

My overall impression would be: I'd stick to the Japanese version. The English dub isn't that bad but there are moments that it's giving me awkward moments. LOL

LMAO so...today I was downloading a bunch of drama cd's i've been wanting to listen to for ages.

And I was downloading and reading over the translations for there Vampire Knight 'Goodnight' CD's where the character talks you to sleep. XD

I was reading over Kaname's and he started telling you stories on the other NIght Class people. When he mentioned Ichijou, ...he said Ichijou was really influenced by this one detective manga that started in poison and ended up resulting in a decetive case series.

All I could think when reading onward now was

"OMG ICHIJOU's FAV MANGA IS DETECTIVE CONAN!!" XD
