I love feedback! Please tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry, I have a thick skin. ^_^
Let me start by saying that I'm not a subtitles snob, I'm really not.  Although I tend to watch the subtitled version of most anime, it's really a matter of convenience more than anything.  I've seen a lot of very good English dubs.  But Princess Resurrection is not one of them.  I've been watching the dub recently for the first time and yea gods...

Hime, Reiri, and Liza all have such distinctive ways of speaking - that seems like a big part of their characters to me.  Even when the Japanese cast was changed for the OAV their characters still came through in the performance.  But in the English dub, they all sound so... so... bland.  To be honest, I couldn't even swear that they have different actors portraying them, they sound so alike.  And Liza in particular sounds so flat.

And while mispronounced names are pretty much par for the course in English dubs of anime, how the heck do you get "Liza" wrong?  She has an English name, for crying out loud...

Needless to say, to anyone who's going to watch the show, unless you really can't stand subtitles I strongly recommend the original Japanese dub.
