Youkai Watch English Dub Trailer “Utterly Blasphemous!”

Jibanyan-kodamafumika-nekomimi-by-nanairo-fuuka

Pokemon wannabe Youkai Watch has received an English-dubbed trailer in honor of its journey to the US, much to the chagrin of many of its original fans as the trailer confirms that the anime has been thoroughly “westernized”, not unlike several other shows that have made their unfortunate way to the west.

The English trailer, boasting its new theme song in an attempt to be “hip” with the kids:

Yo-kai Watch will air on none other than Disney XD sometime later this year.

    This can't be worse than the US version massacre of the oppening of the first Digimon...

    Let me guess, in the Korean dub Kim Jong-un is the hero and defeats the bad guys?

    That's North Korea moron. South Koreans don't like him nor would they ever dub a Japanese anime.

    As far as stupid americanized theme songs go for localized anime, this isn't especially bad. It's not the 4kids One Piece them, at least.

    hey I'd take the One Piece opening over the Shaman King opening. This is pretty damn bad too. Damn it Disney stop dubbing shit if you aren't going to try, because now either the game is going to be super westernize or shit's not gonna make sense.

    Yeah, it's pretty standard.
    Just a pop song explaining the premise.
    At least it wasnt some rap song.

    Try listening to an average Funimation or Sentai Filmworks dub. Mostly terrible VAs aside, they love to insert random cuss words where there were none in the original Japanese audio and pretty much write their own interpretation of what they characters are saying.

    Watch D-Frag in dub with the English subs on, its like the subs are different to what you're hearing.

    How is that any different from contemporary fansubs that like to insert Internet memes and other random stuff? And more often than not, Sentai's dubs are rushed subtitle script readthroughs that suffer from being *too* faithful to the Japanese version.

    Take K-On! Season 2. They had the had the characters say dollars instead of Yen, despite Yen notes being used in various scenes, that made me cringe utterly.

    Because fansubbers aren't charging $40-60 for the episodes. For that money you'd expect a decent dub and translation, not a half hearted attempt at Americanizing a Japanese cartoon. Seriously, the stuff they put in the dub itself at times is ridiculous. I can see why some people are so anti dub at times.

    Ugh...what ages are we in, there are still people saying "cartoon" for Japanese animation aka Anime to this day?? We need to break free from Disney's curse from our childhood time already!

    While I agreed with what you had said but try to change that mindset of your. And by the way its Ah-nee-may, don't ever say Any-may which is what I heard some sale person selling Anime goods says...sigh

    They could have just saved the time and effort and used the Ghostbusters theme song.

    Pretty well nothing. I just ran both videos simultaneously (this one muted):

    They synched WAY too well. Even the part where both show the "Rogues Gallery" of ghosts/youkai, the imminent busting, and the lead kid freaking out as the Ghostbusters song plays "I ain't afraid of no ghost".

    The opening HAD to have been deliberately timed to the Ghostbusters opening/theme.

    Lets be real: both the english version and the original OP are horrible.

    One is just plain dumb and the other is as silly as it gets.

    On a side note, I still prefer the scenes from the jap op. They bring more the feeling of the anime...the english ver is just a mashup of random things to look dynamic.
