The Dubs

Mawaru Penguindrum is one of those dubs that you feel like it could be so much better. It's very clear that the English actors were not in the same recording room together, since since almost all of the voice inflections seemed off and unnatural in some way.

Furthermore, Himari's voice seems too old for the girl she's playing, and her pronunciation is legitimately cringeworthy at times.

Normally, I'd say stick with the dub anyway, but coupled with the very strong sub performance in Mawaru Penguindrum so far, I have to advocate for the sub on this one. Still, I didn't think many of the american VAs record in the same room/at the same time.

That's mostly a Japanese thing, yet, I feel it the most on Mawaru Penguindrum.
