    I really liked Irukas voice since it was exactly how I imagined it in the dub. Naruto's voice sometimes strays off and doesn't make a good angry voice like the Japanese voice. I LOVE Shikamarus voice since it sounds pretty cool and it fits him. Kakashi's voice i thought just didnt fit him since he makes himself so..... dull talking in one tone all the time. lol thats what i think anyways.

    Bold stuff doesn't work in the title. =/

    But I like Naruto's voice. It's getting better as things progress. Same with Sakura. Sasuke wasn't bad from the start. Mizuki, Iruka, Hokage...What can I say? They're all pretty good.

    Kakashi doesn't sound cool enough. I really like the rest of the voices though, except Chouji's which sounded really awful. Hokage and Sasuke are my favorites.

    hm... I think Kakashi's voice is a little bit off. It doesnt seem to fit his attitude well enough.
    Chouji's sounded a bit weird but it was pretty short dialogue so I dunno...
    I thought Naruto's was off but it grew on me so I don't mind it too much now.
    Everybody else's seem to be fitting so far. :amuse

    Sakura's voice is absolutely, 100 and 20% perfect for her.
    Naruto's voice is good too, but it still needs a lil work.
    Sasuke's voice...er...i HATE it.
    Hondaime's voice..couldnt be better.
    Iruka's voice is okay.

    IMO:

    Naruto's voice: He is the Main Character.....i dont feel enuf has been done to better suit him....too phelmy...raspy.....doesnt feel like its his "voice" coming out of him....

    Sakura's voice: could take some time to get used too....kinda have a similar feeling like how i have with Naruto's voice....dont really see it coming out of her.....but cannot really determine yet....missed episode #4

    Sasuske's voice: possible but again could take some time to get used too....missed episode #4

    Shikamaru's voice: dont feel suited...but might take some time to get used too...

    Iruka's voice: emotionless....disappointment....might get better in time....

    Ino's voice: perfection here...

    Mizuki's voice: acceptable...

    Ibisu: an argument here can be made that american OVA could be better than the Japanese OVA

    Chouji: absolute BUTCHERING....cant believe they can do worse than imaginable

    Sandaime: acceptable

    Kakashi: didnt hear enough to give judgement....

    not sure if im missing anyone else....but overall not satisfied with the voices...as a whole...the dubbed version is watchable....but dont feel its heart touching and not capturing its feelings that is done with the Japanese anime....almost feeling its just another CARTOON show....nothing captivating....

    Kakashi's voice seemed a bit forced...I don't seem to care how they sound... as long as they aren't slow...

    Just Chouji. Naruto's voice in itself is okay, it's just the way Maile says her lines that needs improvement.

    The only voice I agree on at the moment is Ebisu's, he pernounces everything right and it just seems to fit.

    Naruto: I wish Mallie could get her voice just a bit deeper for this; when Naruto gives speeches in the Japanese version, it gets very low and serious.

    Konohamaru: HOLY CRAP THE BEST TRANSITION EVER. He sounds the same.

    Sakura: Definitely fits the character. A little more annoying than the Japanese version (and a little less natural), but fits the character.

    Sasuke: Pretty cool, though I'm still not used to Sasuke's voice being different.

    Iruka: Seems to be improving immensely as the show goes on.

    Kakashi: Not too bad, but not my favorite either.

    Sandaime: He has an acceptable, almost clich├ęd grandfathery voice. He has really awkward pacing sometimes, though.

    I think Iruka's ahi's fit really well, but Naruto's doesn't at all.

    That image is from the Movie#1 special. Why is that related to "crazy dub fans"?

    I liked all the voices, I thought Naruto's was a little raspy at first but the more I heard it the more I got use to it. I like it now.

    I've missed ep.03-04, so I can't make a substantial judgment. I have seen the ep.05 preview, though. Kakashi's voice...I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's out of place. The voice itself is good, but personally it's not a Kakashi voice. I imagined him sounding a lot deeper than Dave Wittenberg made him sound. I don't know who the voice would be a better fit for, though. It's just not Kakashi.

    Naruto's voice is still going to take some getting used to, but I don't hate it. It fits, strangely enough.

    I'm really impressed with Shikamaru's voice, the way he thinks to himself about Ino throwing a fit was acted so well, I really believe his character.

    Hinata soudned great in ep 1, but then in ep 3 she sounded like a nerd that had snot stuck up her nose... I guess I would have to hear her actually speak a little more. I hope they make her stutter in some of ther lines though, to keep it real.

    Kakashi still sounds like the laid back type, which is great.

    But I just can't wait to hear Gai!!! :Gaipose
