    The dub is a step up from HiME, but why bother when the seiyuu give more nuance and personality to their characters? My friend and I came away with the impression that dub is almost there but not quite right in portraying the characters’ personalities. A lot of the minor characters and a couple major ones like Nina are just about spot on, a lot are almost there, like Nao, but lack the nuances they had in the original, and others are just plain bad. Natsuki’s voice actor just seems to be substituting in stiffness for maturity and her uptight manner. Nagi sounds like an old lady. Shizuru initially comes off sounding like a Southern Belle, then fluctuates between British and Australian, and finally ends up sounding like an old stereotypical southern black housemaid. Accents done right, like Hellsing (either version), can be a real treat, but done wrong it just sound bad.

    Loved My Hime and am eager to watch My Otome.

    The Hime dub was rightly criticized for being awful. It’s good to know Otome is getting better treatment. It’s nice to have someone do an anime review of sorts with the N/A release along with dub talk. You rock ^^

    The one thing that still irks me are the Limited box sets and how they sit horizontal, totally screwing up my shelves. I hate stacking art boxes, dab nabbit :p
