Anime Regional Message Board
Well, we're back. And we see in our absence that the WA finally got around to passing another resolution, "Individual Working Freedoms". We were supporting that during the drafting session and were going to encourage you all to vote for it, so I guess it was all for the better (unless you all really hated it). Anyways, the WA is idle once more, so we'll try to keep a closer eye on it to make sure it doesn't sneak one past us again.
Oh, and subs. I know next to no Japanese, but every now and then I catch a familiar word or phrase that almost inevitably gets lost in translation (usually things like honorifics, which simply have no analog in English). That and I've learned a few Japanese words by following the subtitles.
Subs all the way. English voice actors are so grating.. Maybe I should mention that my first dub was Naruto (so you understand me). I immediately switched to subs.
Plus, you do learn Japanese. I started accidentally learning it (the vocab messed me up on my Spanish exams)! Now I take it as an actual class & I'm going for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test this Dec.
It depends on the anime. Now I am watching Rurouni Kenshin dubbed and I know it is not a very good dub, but he sounded like a girl in the subbed. I can see it with Allen Walker not Kenshin
I personally prefer dubs myself, mainly because the Japanese talk so fast in most of the anime I've watched. (And yes, I know it is a poor excuse.)
kawaii desu :3
I just finished Kino's Journey. It is one of the greatest animes I have ever seen. It is also one of my favorite animes of all time.

Here you go.
Meanwhile it's WA News, "Why Do We Bother To Come In To Work?" edition. The WA finally got around to bringing a proposal to vote, "Debris Prevention". It's a proposal to limit the amount of "space junk" in orbit. A reasonable proposal, but one that is likely never to see the light of day. Thanks to the efforts of three mega-delegates, Mousebumples of Europeia, HMS Unicorn of The North Pacific, and Cormac A Stark of Osiris, their combined 756 votes against the proposal at the start of voting has effectively tanked it. After a day's voting, the "Nays" lead the "Ayes" by 626 votes, the ongoing lead being almost solely attributable to the these three delegates. It's been our experience that a strong early lead one way or the other usually sets the tone of the voting pattern. It's highly unlikely that such a strong early vote against can be overcome in the next three days of voting.
We note the early returns from Anime here were strongly in favor, so we've voted "Aye" early in protest of the lemming effect. This really would be a good resolution, so we encourage those of you who haven't voted yet to vote in favor as well.
