    I think japanese people say more through the tone of their voices than in other languages. For example, it's more common for them to scream in a non agressive way, like when they say "thank you!".

    So, to fit the characters facial expression, voice actors in english (or spanish, for the case) try to imitate this effusive way of talking that japanese have. But it just doesn't sounds good in our languages.
    And when they don't try to do that and take a more subdued approach, according to our language, it doesn't fit the characters.

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

    Just to keep this thread on topic, what does everyone think of the differences in color schemes between the two anime? I personally have never been a fan of many of Nippon's choices in this regard. Largely, their coloring was a little too subdued and muted for my tastes. especially when it came to characters and clothing. A number of color combinations in certain outfits were simply unappealing. I probably dislike Killua's light pink t-shirt and maroon long-sleeve shirt the most. The overall tone the colors create doesn't fit him well, at least to my eyes, and blends awkwardly with the other three main characters.

    i understand alot of it, and im learning to write kanji

    i know enough to know what im talking about in this situation

    I like the artwork so far from the 1999 anime, the 2011 is superior in every way

    but the 1999 does have a nice feel to it

    I advise you to download it from a torrent site in a good quality rather than just watching it on a streaming site, I actually think that most free streaming sites are just annoying.

    About the English dubs, the only anime that I can think of right now that had a really great English dub was Cowboy Bebop; the voices were great and they fit the characters almost perfectly, and sometimes I find myself preferring them over some of the original voices. Another anime I just remembered with a great dub is Samurai Champloo, which actually had some of the voices that was in the Cowboy Bebop dub. it kinda seems like director Shinichiro Watanabe works always get great dubs.
    I think that the English dubs can be really good if done right. You know, almost all of the american animated movies have great voice acting and I don't think that anime dubs should be of any different.
