The Award For The WORST Anime Dub Of All Time Goes To…
This is one for the books. This anime dub is so bad that the dialogue completely changes the story in far too many ways. I have often asked myself where they found these voice actors. Did the actors just improv all of this? I mean really, who writes this stuff? The voice actors are horrendous as they enhance the s**tiness of the dialogue and overall story…..And the award for the worst anime dub goes to this wonderful trainwreck…..1986 anime mini-series, ANGEL COP
I had a hard time finding the subbed version because the anime dub version is so popular. When I finally managed to get my hand on the original subbed version, I realized it was almost a different film. I also haven’t read the manga yet, so I am sure it’s a totally different story altogether.
Angel Cop is a six-part original video animation created and directed by Ichirō Itano. A manga adaptation is written and illustrated by Taku Kitazaki. In addition, the collection was serialized in 1990. Angel Cop is a futuristic story of a terrorism combat special-forces officer Raiden (dubbed by John Hunter) and his badass new partner Angel (dubbed by Sharon Holm).
They are used to fighting terrorist groups in Japan, but when Raiden is critically injured, Angel has to take on an enemy unlike any she has never encountered before.
Angel Cop is considered a classic among vintage anime fans. However, it seems like fans enjoy the dubbed version because there is so much unnecessary dialogue. I love cursing and what not but I don’t even know with this one…there is so much craziness in this anime it will make your head spin. I won’t even talk too much about it. Here is a video that puts together almost 4 minutes (not even all of it) of bad acting, horrible dialogue and a lot of WTF moments.
Please, if you know a dub with language that worse, leave the links below. So far I am convinced that nothing tops this.
