The Lyrics

Part of my "Shine Brighter Supplemental" self-challenge. Bad anime dubs: don't you just hate 'em?
I think anime's cool, guys
Always watching through the night
But there's something not quite right
And it's rotten like mold
The expression's clear 'nough
But the voice doesn't match up
His angry screed sounds dull
The hell's going on?

Think I hate this dub, it sucks
The emotions don't match up
The character looks riled up
But he just sounds drugged

Their lips keep flapping in place
Causes some awkward stre-essing
And some filler just for pa-a-acing
Like "uh" and "all right"

Repeating lines word for word
To make sure that we have heard
The plans of that evil turd
Treat us like eejits
God, I hate this dub

And let's not forget that any time that the original version
Has scenes with blood and violence, then the scene gets cut
And if there's innuendo or Japanese cult'ral ref'rences
It's all white-washed in this utter hackjob dub
No complex plots, it's all spelled out
Because they seem to think that we are twelve
And as such we are all morons
It's not that hard, write a script
That doesn't talk, down to kids
And so adults, they can watch
The show without, yelling "you're crap!"

I hate this dub, it sucks
Any violence cut, so what?
Kids aren't stupid so-o-o let up
On these crap dubs, these hackjob dubs

Yeah, I hate this dub, it sucks (I really hate this dub)
The lip flaps don't match up (how much was this shit rushed?)
The sub, I would prefer (I can read, easy 'nough)
Though it's expensive (long time shipping)

I hate this dub, it sucks
Anime's more downs than ups
Regretting my fandom love
For this bullshit dub

God, this song is so BORING. What happened to the upbeat Mraz of "Geek in the Pink"? Yeesh.

Perfectly describes all the atrocities committed by 4Kids *shudder*. I can never forgave them for what they have done to One Piece. Then there was a mid-90s dub of DBZ, what the HFIL?
