    i just got some horrible dvd rips of the first 4 disks, they were not properly IVTC or deinterlaced. my thing is tho that i have been watching only americanize GITS, so the voices are a big part. is the japanese audio that much different, in sense of emotion through voice? the only parts im gonna have a problem with is the little tanks. so now im stuck here debating between going out and getting the dvds from the store, or downloading the whole season subbed with japanese audio. ne input in making this decision easier will be appreciated.

    Yes. IMHO subs will ALWAYS be better than American dubbed voices. There's a certain amount of drama that's lost with dubs.

    ...and I don't think the Tachikomas sound any more annoying with subs OR dubs.

    The japanese voices portray the characters MUCH better. I cant even stand to watch it on AS now.

    i have all the FMA, GITS SAC1/SAC2, and Samuri Shamploo eps right now, and won't watch the jap version until i'm done with the english version on CN. but i've never really had a prob with dubs too.
