The middle Sankaku Complex collected a number of negative comments towards the English dub of the anime Kaguya-sama: Love is Warspecifically to the third season aired during the season of Spring-2022 (April-June) in Japan. The criticism is about the performance of the narrator, who exaggerates the tone of his lines and does not respect the atmosphere of the source material, according to fans. Let’s review the original scene first: And now let’s review what was done in the English dubbing: And how is Latin Spanish? Although it is not the central theme of this note, it is worth reviewing it in this excerpt from the introduction of the series in the first episode.

Having already reviewed the dubs, why don’t we review the comments made to the narrator in the English dub of Kaguya-sama: Love is War? Multiple comments, both positive and negative, can be read about it, highlighting: “Maybe this shit would be funny if it was a reaction video or something…but is this what dub viewers get?! It feels like a totally different show with this dumb ass “narration”. “At first I thought it was a reaction video. Not even the casting of Aaron Dismuke as Shirogane is enough to make up for how terrible this idea is. Looks like the dubbing work was given to Funimation instead of Aniplex USA.” This is literally a joke that would make a series abridged, like go to “Sword Art Online Abridged” and I’m sure you’d find like three of these storytelling jokes.” An Abridger is a term used on YouTube to describe a user who makes shortened versions of anime shows, dubbing the original voices and editing them specifically for humorous effect. The humor often contains references to pop culture and demonizes the show and even the people who watch it. “I don’t know. It seems like they gave him free rein to make him unique compared to the Japanese narrator. And it looks like he’s having fun with the role. Which is something definitive of the anime adaptation of Kaguya-sama in Japanese, so why not do it with the English dub as well? original. The voice actors should work to preserve the anime in its original intention, not to “make it their own”. Kaguya is also cutesy in Japanese, only he is cutesy in Japanese. He quite liberal indeed, but the spirit is the same. Unlike, say, the changes in Kobayashi. However, he demonstrates why exclusive translation licenses should never exist. Some people are fine with it, but others would prefer something closer to the original. Both translations would have an audience, that is, as it happens with public domain books». «I don’t know man, it seems to me that you just don’t like this kind of humor. To me the narrator was absolutely amazing and he always made me laugh out loud. In general, all the dubbing was fucking amazing, in my opinion. See for me this is not corny but just normal loose humor and you just seem to have a very dry humor. However, I wouldn’t have judged you for it if you hadn’t done it unnecessarily earlier. Why be the one with a stick up your ass hanging a “no fun allowed” sign everywhere? Loosen up a bit.” “Damn, I thought it was Shirogane’s thoughts, not the narrator’s, so it didn’t seem too bad. But is he supposed to be the narrator? I hope it’s not like this for every episode, that would make me want to quit.” “Wait, wasn’t this a reaction video? That literally sounds like Markiplier from 2014, what do you mean it’s not a reaction video? What are these voice actors doing?». «I admit it. The narrator is supposed to sound unbiased and untethered.”
