Why do I say the voice acting was terrible? Well for one, the characters sounded like they're reading from a script. They over-enunciated each word and spoke so slowly that they just sounded unnatural if not flat. Their voices did not contain the emotion portrayed by their character's face or body during some scenes. Their voices were annoyingly shrill at times probably in an effort to make the character sound young. Then there's that "pausing at the wrong time in the middle of the sentence" habit that they seem to have. My poor heart (and ears) can't take it!
Examples of anime I've seen recently which were, in my opinion, horribly dubbed although I've never seen the original Japanese versions:
- Ayashi no Ceres
- Kyo Kara Maoh!
- Weiss Kreuz
