QuoteWoah, that musta been pimpin' o__o I watched some Black Lagoon on a big screen at Sakura kon, but that was the only anime I watched while I was there >.> It was pretty good.

indeed! it was much fun watching it, and the english voice actors wernt that bad. Really too bad about geneon US closing its doors.. they will never finish dubbing it.. ~_~  Anyhow, It was dissapointing that it was one of the few times during the con that I got to hang out with the toki :( Hanging out before the con was teh awsome :3

OMG!!!
Did you see how hard they raped the title when they translated it into Dutch?! Man, Dutch is LAME!

Oh, eehm, sorry for bashing my native language before thanking you for the link...
It looks good. :D I'll go watch it ( i do hope that it's not licensed yet, because the nearest anime/manga store is 30 miles away and it's REALLY small, so they probably wouldn't have it right there)...

Everything sucks when dubbed.

Damn near everything, at least.

Some things, however, suck so much they become OH HILARITY.

Also, doesn't everything sound awfully awkward when translated into your native language, especially from Japanese...?
YOU COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS

Smokey

Yeah, only i once watched Ice Age with Flemmish dubs...Now THAT was hilarious... :D

Although I must say this thread is strange because official thread "your introduction to anime" already exists here:

http://www.ostan-collections.net/topic-169.html

...but I want to comment here because I want to answer to NejinOniwa and Toki who have a question:

Quote from: "NejinOniwa"Ok, off-topicness detected.

To return a bit, any of you guys know any viking Animu? I's detected shortage much, ef.

Quote from: "Toki"Viking anime... viking anime... Record of Lodoss War almost... not really. I don't remember. o.o It's been a while.

As I said in the other thread there is an interesting Anime of 1974 that in Italy it is named "Vicky il Vichingo" and original name was "Chîsana baikingu Bikke" [EDIT]original german name is "Wickie" [/EDIT] and it is a co-production of Austria + Germany + Japan.

I believe it should be japanese animation while characters are german...

I remember it because it was the first japanese anime in Italy, and it is historically remebered for that.

I saw it and was quite good (even if a bit linear in the plot) and sure aimed at child audience.



Also I remember a Viking movie from TOEI, in which Hayao Miyazaki realized the Character Design.

Film was a flop in Japan, and sure it is very very very SAAAAD plot movie,  But Miyazaki was so good that he became very respected and gained many positions in TOEI management...

Movie was called in Italy with various names, because it was considered sad and violent and it presented a very lame editing of the scenes of the story (european cuts? american cuts? censorship cuts?), and marketing tried to change its name to enhance its poor appeal.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_grande_avventura_del_piccolo_principe_Valiant


I don't know if there are english version (but sure there should be one... At least now that Miyazaki has become famous, a modern version of this movie then it should had been re-mastered)...

Name of this film is "La grande avventura del piccolo principe Valiant" / "Il segreto della spada del sole" / Horus â€" Principe del Sole, original name is "Taiyo no ÅŒji - Horusu no daiboken".

So if you are searching for Vikings related anime now you know what to search for...

You can search for an entire serial cartoon, and also you can search for a movie...


[EDIT]

OK from articles of Wikipedia in my country I extended the search and I reached the english names and versions of both these anime...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicky_the_Viking.


(YAY! I'M DA MAN!  :smoke: I knew it was original european character design... The article confirmed it...  ;010 )

Also I discovered that in Italy there are selling DVDs of Vicky...

Here this link brings you to the italian Opening theme from DVD:

http://video.libero.it/app/play?id=45fd9b0cc6d55f5d5f838cbfc3184a25

Here are some images:








As being orignally a german cartoon, I bet that Vicky should be famous in Germany too, in the seventies...

So it is more logical that there should exists also a german release of DVDs.
Also, German are famous to be precise, and very professional, so I hope that german version should feature multi-language soundtrakcs (german, english, japanese)...

Check for it on E-Bay or Amazon...

Also I found that american name of Prince Valiant/Horus is this:

"Little Norse Prince Valiant"...

Now check E-bay or Amazon or even the "Mule" for searching it, because it should be very very rare and I think it is not sold anymore...

Sorry, I could not subscribe your point of view...

Here in my country dubbing it is very professional, and often it reaches very high quality.

Unfortunately as here in Italy were dubbed more than 500 japanese cartoons, and many were imported in the seventies, there were an inflactioned market of anime, professional dubbers were used too often for real movies, and cartoons are considered just a market for childs, that it must receive no quality attention, and this lead to a certain number of lame dubs...

"Kimba the Lion" by Osamu Tezuka was sure LAME dubbed here in Italy.
