Why I like StoryBooth better than ACTUALLY HAPPENED/MY STORY ANIMATED

- SB has their stories animated, while AH/MSA has only still frames.
- In SB, the people who submitted the story recorded their own voice, while AH/MSA has a narrator hired to read it for them.
- SB has more believable stories, those stories could possibly happen in real life. AH/MSA's stories feel too much like fiction to be believable.
I'm almost 19 but I like watching PBS Kids program breaks. I dunno why.
Something that happened at the mall today:

Me: Hmm, there's this store over there, I've always wanted to visit it.

*enters store*

Me: omg so much geek stuff this is like heaven on earth! ❤❤❤

*sees stripper and dominatrix outfits*

Me: Huh?

*looks beyond the stripper outfits and sees a ton of NSFW items like dildos, dick shaped items, and BDSM related accessories*

Me: Didn't expect that, did I? XD

And that's how I accidentally entered a NSFW store.
JAMIE MARCHI IS BEST JUNKO AND NO SOUL CAN TELL ME OTHERWISE!!!!
Alright guys. Don't be like me. I watched some videos of Amber Alerts going off during kids TV programming which will probably traumatize the six year olds watching. And, I watched it in the middle of the night. Guess I'm gonna stay woke the entire night. @_@
i just learned that danganronpa smut audio exists
Today's my first day of my full time job! Unfortunately, I had a pretty heart-wrenching nightmare last night. In my dream, I was accepted into having a full time job. However, it was not my current job. It was a job at a grocery store library place or something. When I pulled up to the store, my manager told me I couldn't work today because they were undergoing a small revamp. Or something. I understood, so they told me to watch this video about it. The video was fairly innocent at first, but halfway through it cuts to Leon Kuwata (from Danganronpa) getting his face chopped off. I legit had to force myself to wake up. I didn't want to see it.
Managed to grab LA Hector, Bunny Alphonse, and Lene in the legendary banner. Still no Gunnthra though. It makes me sad.
I miss the days where I can talk about genders without being reminded that there are a million more genders than just male or female.

I recently completed the Persona 4 anime! It was recommended to me by my voice director, since he noticed that I was interested in getting into Persona 4, yet I don't have a console to play it on. The Persona 4 anime is an extremely faithful adaptation that covers each and every aspect of the game. And it was such a wild ride for me! In fact, I think I might like the anime much much more than the game, since Yu actually speaks in the anime, and as a fan of Johnny Yong Bosch, I approve of this.

Overall, I highly recommend you give it a try, even if you haven't played a single Persona game!

Welp, the new banner just leaked. I'm staying faaar away from Twitter and Fire Emblem related discords until the new trailer drops.

Don't spoil me on this one, but I fucking swear if one of the characters rides a FUCKING pegasus, send me a table because I need something to flip.

Question: Do you like that I'm drawing fan art of characters not from Fire Emblem for once?

Another question, what character should I draw next?

- Female Eve (NieR Automata)
- Sonia Nevermind (Danganronpa)
- Ann Takamaki (Persona 5)
- Hiyoko Saionji (Danganronpa)
I really want to buy a 2B plush! But since I have never played Nier Automata before, I'm afraid it'll go the same way as when I got an Animal Crossing plush. I've never played an AC game other than Pocket Camp. I once took my plush with me to a big event and someone who I thought was friends with me harshly criticized me for not playing Animal Crossing before getting the plush. She treated it like it was a law of some sort where you're not allowed to buy merchandise of a game before playing it.

I can safely say I'm not friends with her anymore.
I loooove hentai today, but Boku no Pico still disgusts me.
I legit made a reverse harem team with Ike, Ike, and Lukas, with their princess being Nanna. As much as I ship her with Leif, the quotes they say are really sweet.

"Leave it to me."
"What... should I do?"
"Let's move."
"It's all for you."

DISCLAIMER: IF YOU PREFER SUBS OVER DUBS, I FULLY RESPECT YOUR OPINION AS LONG AS YOU'RE NOT A DICK ABOUT IT. THIS JOURNAL WAS MADE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF EXPRESSING MY OPINION, NOT FOR PERSUASIVE REASONS. 

I AM ALSO QUITE BLUNT ABOUT MY OPINIONS AND I WILL EXPRESS MY HONEST FEELINGS TOWARDS THE SUBBED VERSIONS OF ANIME/GAMES. IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE ABOUT THIS, STOP READING BEYOND THIS POINT.


ALSO, IF YOU ARE A DUB HATER, GO THE FUCK AWAY AND DO NOT INTERACT. YOU SHOULD BE READING YOUR ANIME AND NOT MY JOURNAL, AND PREFERABLY, MY PROFILE AS WELL. JUST, UNWATCH ME IF YOU'RE A DUB HATER. IF YOU PREFER SUBS OVER DUBS BUT STILL TOLERATE DUBS, YOU'RE FREE TO STAY.


Anyways, let's begin.

Ever since I was a newcomer to anime, I have preferred dubs over subs, and the fact that I chose to watch dubs every time they were available proves it. I watched my first anime in English. I watched my gateway anime in English. The majority of anime I watched when I was thirteen, whether I completed them or not, were in English. If you asked me five years ago why I preferred dubs over subs, I wouldn't come up with a good answer. I'd probably say "because i like the voices" or something. Now that it's 2018, I'm an adult, and I have a burning passion for voice acting, I'm gonna give you many reasons why I prefer dubs over subs.

The way America casts their actors. Ever since I read this article , I felt extremely disappointed in the way Japan hires voice actors. According to the article, Japan cares more about how the voice actor looks rather than how well they can actually act. This is probably why you don't see some of the same iconic seiyu names in cast lists as they grow older. On the opposite side of the world, American dub studios don't care about how the voice actor looks. The person can be one of the ugliest people in the world, and if they can act, they're in. Voice actors are not screen actors. I say it's true because dub actors who were in dubs in the early 2000s are, very often, still voice acting today. American studios love their acting, which is why they're acting for longer. Also, not everyone starts young, as there have been older VAs who have only been voice acting for a couple of years. 

Dub voices tend to be more varied. A lot of Japanese original anime and games, especially ones airing today, tend to have very samey voices for characters. In fact, 80% of seiyu today tend to give characters the exact same three voices for characters. Of course, there are exceptions, the seiyu who have unique and actually pleasing to listen to voices, but nowadays, that's very rare. However, dubs tend to have more varied voices. Voices that actually help me tell the characters apart. Voices that I affiliate with that character. It's more than just the same three voices, you got different tones, different pitches, different accents, just a whole lot of things that make a voice unique, that is not often found in subs. 

The acting is, most of the time, better. This goes with my first reason. Dubs tend to have better acting than subs. There are a few exceptions though, (example: chaos wars) but 90% of dubs produced starting from the early 2000s are quite superior to the sub overall. A lot of subs I heard sounded like the seiyu were reading off a script, with only a cutesy voice to make up for it. However, in dubs, mastering your own voice is very important too. Some voice actors use their natural sounding voice to voice a character, but overall produce better acting than a majority of seiyu doing cutesy voices.

The casting is, most of the time, age appropriate. Quite a few teenage male characters, even adult male characters, are voiced by females in the Japanese version. In most cases, I personally don't really like the casting choice. I tend to call these kinds of characters "Boy Voiced By A Girl", or BVBAG, for short. This is what I use to describe female portrayals of male characters who appear to be 13 years old or older. There are some exceptions to this, (e.g. crossdressing men) but 90% of the time it makes the characters sound way younger than they're supposed to be. One famous example of this is Goku from Dragonball Z. Masako Nozawa, his seiyu, is a granny in her 80s. She was only good for the role when he was a child, hence, being age appropriate. However, she kept voicing him even when he grew into an adult, hence the BVBAG effect. Dubs, however, don't believe in BVBAGs, and will often cast actors who are the same gender as their character, again, with a few exceptions. Sean Schemmel is the English voice for Goku, and is probably the most iconic voice for Goku that I know of.

I hope you enjoyed reading this! I had quite a bit of fun writing this. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments!
