Unless somebody can sell me on Laputa or Nauiscaa I think that Kiki's Delivery Service will be the only thing that I watch.

If it's gonna be like SBS's other anime showings, it'll be dubbed. Very interested in the SAC showing, but I'm not much of a Ghibli fan. The only movie of theirs I liked was Grave of the Fireflies. Which probably doesn't count because it wasn't handled by Miyazaki.

This is fantastic news. I don't have cable or sat., so DVDs are practically my only source of anime.

Lets hope it's also as successful for Madman as previous TV screenings of other series.

What a shame the 28th isn't up on the SBS listings yet. I wanted to get the SMS alert set up before I forgot (the rest can be bought and/or I've already seen it). That Ghibli doco could be rather cool.

Wow. Most anime fans would be applauding the screening of anime in it's original language on TV!

I guess you just can't please everyone.

Ha, that's funny, as according to the Austar guide, GITS: SAC is debuting in Adult Swim on the 19th of september, which will mean it's either replacing Inital D or it may be pushing it down a notch. Can't confirm it though, as the 19/09/2005 doesn't to be online on either CNs site or austars. *shrug*.


Also, for any of us to affect the ratings of GITS: SAC wouldn't we need to be one of those people that are used to check the ratings? You know, with one of them little ratings boxes on the top of their TV?

I think Sly was talking about electronic ratings. This site has more information: http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/question433.htm
So yeah, unless you've chosen to take part in one of these representative samples, whether or not you watch GITS:SAC won't matter.

Nausicaa is an absolute must-see. It might even be Ghibli's best film. Don't even think about missing it.

Also, given that you're a Gundam otaku, Laputa should be up your alley a bit, too.

Correction, most of the Anime fans on this forum "would be applauding the screening of anime in it's original language on TV", the rest of the Aussie Anime fans prefer to watch it in a language they understand (so they can actually watch the show), rather than trying to squint at the subtitles on a TV, on the other side of the room, as fast paced action scenes streak by unseen!!

Strangely enough, I don't hear people complaining about that sort of thing when a Hong Kong action flick gets screened subtitled.

I'm amazed at this too. I don't understand why SBS treats anime this way when it clearly doesn't for any other foreign language TV series or movies (other than some documentaries and Iron Chef). Why must anime be short-shafted all the time by SBS?

Des Mangan once said that it was "so you can enjoy the animation better".

It is rather odd, though, given SBS's insistence on the original language in almost every other case. I'll be surprised, but pleased, if the Ghibli films are screened in Japanese.

SBS tend to think like this - Use subtitles if there is no other option. With all the movies they screen, this seems to be the case. Few exceptions here and there though, so the Ghibli movies have some chance of being shown in Japanese.

This excuse was wheeled out on Hotline too, and it's just bollocks. Am I missing the wonderful cinematograpy if I watch a live action film subtitled? What a load of rubbish.

Tony wrote:

SBS provides programs in their original language for people who speak that language. That's what they've always done. That's the idea behind SBS Radio and TV. If SBS Radio and and TV was completely in English, their would be no need for SBS at all. SBS TV has had a number of opportunities to play dubbed versions of movies they have screened (the Godzilla films and various Hong Kong movies are couple examples off the top of my head), but they donít. Why? Because the station exists to provide a service to people who speak different languages (even some adverts are in Cantonese and other languages). So why do people who speak Japanese get the middle finger from SBS when it comes to anime? Iíd be a little insulted if I was a native Japanese speaker and the show I was watching was English dubbed on SBS.

I suspect the people replying to this thread in defence of SBS playing anime English probably donít listen to or watch SBS. I suggest those people actually listen to SBS Radio and watch SBS TV to see what theyíre about. Itís quite obvious that they exist so people from other countries can view programs in their own language. I donít know how playing English dubbed anime helps. I honestly donít know, and I donít know how SBS can justify it at all.

I donít know if Sly can tell us or not, but does SBS request the English masters for broadcast or is it some sort of licensing agreement where Madman only licensed the English version for TV broadcast?

Hmm.. I'm not sure if I agree with that. As one of the many who first got seriously into anime due to Eva on SBS, the fact we were watching SBS at all meant we accepted subtitles. If you were inducted via DBZ or the like then I can understand what you're saying, but I think SBS don't give enough credit to regular peoples acceptance of subtitling.

IMO if you're the sort of person who will enjoy a cartoon about giant robots, you're probably not going to be fussed with reading a bit...

Well many people here would disagree, but lets leave it at that.

If you would like to start the google-eth 'Dub Vs. Sub' thread, have it degenerate into flame wars and have it closed like every other 'Dub Vs. Sub' thread, be my guest.

Just make sure that everyone who you know who might like what SBS is showing know about it and watches it. That way they get great ratings, and we get more free-to-air anime!

You are aware that it's all subtitled when the spoken language isn't English, right?

Attitudes like that really irk me. Who cares if it's not spoken in your damn language? It is, however written in your language, you can read can't you? To completely ignore a show just because the foreign actors won't speak your language is elitist and pig-headed. Sorry if this is a bit flamey, but you remind me of those rednecks who walked out of the cinema when "Hero" was playing just because it wasn't in English.

This would matter, if SBS exists for ratings alone. We've already got channel 9, though.

Now, now, no need to get upset.


The most important thing is of course to voice your feelings to SBS's hotline. the more peopledoing this, and the more ratings it gets, the more likely they will be convinced that anime definitely has a place on their line up just like South Park etc.

You people have the power, dont fight about whehter or not something is in Japanese or English, the most improtant thing to get ANIME in general onto TV!

Attitudes like that really irk me. Who cares if it's not spoken in your damn language? It is, however written in your language, you can read can't you? To completely ignore a show just because the foreign actors won't speak your language is elitist and pig-headed. Sorry if this is a bit flamey, but you remind me of those rednecks who walked out of the cinema when "Hero" was playing just because it wasn't in English.


As I've said before in sub/dub threads, "I" watch TV to zone out & relax, the last thing I want to have to do is try to read subs, that requires thinking, the exact opposite of what I'm trying to do at that point in time, "I" just want to be entertained for awhile & forget about the real world, what's so hard to understand about that?

Your literacy skills appear to suffice for posting on internet fora. Could be mistaken, here.

I suspect the people replying to this thread in defence of SBS playing anime English probably donít listen to or watch SBS.

I thought it was pretty obvious what I meant


I don't know why some people are so picky on forums, so what if some people don't use punctuation at all, some people use caps ALL THE TIME, some people post in geek speak & some people forget words all together, you don't have to act like a pratt about it!! Rolling Eyes

This would matter, if SBS exists for ratings alone. We've already got channel 9, though.


If people don't watch the show, whats the point in having it on in the 1st place?? Rolling Eyes




I've said all I have to say on Sub Vs Dub & on SBS, so I won't be posting to this thread again, unless of course someone else feels the need to attack me for liking my Anime in English!!

Like a lot of people, I've been asking SBS (& other stations) for more anime for years, I really hope this is the start of something more!!

Things like a lack of punctuation, leetspeak and omitting words do make it extremely difficult to follow what someone's trying to say.

That's all wonderful and fine for Madman, but as a regular SBS watcher since the late 1980's, SBS's stance on playing dubbed anime irks me to hell. The "we show it dubbed, so you can enjoy the animation better" line shows them for the bunch of hypocrites they are when they screen an animated film like "Fantasic Planet" in it's original French language (with English subtitles of course), when a perfectly good English dub existed. I'm just totally disapointed with SBS on this matter, and fact they still continue to do it.

It's very much more complex than that.

I appreciate your desire to get out of this conversation; I'm addressing this response *not* because of the specific sub-vs-dub situation, but because I think your response sort of misses the point. I have nothing further to say on sub-vs-dub; this is strictly wrt the popularity-vs-market-segments matter.

What you say is true; if nobody watches a program, there's no real point screening it. But: there exist people who watch subtitled television, so you're sort of drawing a false dichotomy there.

The choice isn't between "nobody watching version X" or "some people watching version Y". If it were, you'd have a point; there's no reason to show something that noone would watch. But that's *not* the situation, the situation is between [at best[1]] "fewer people watching version X" vs "more people watching version Y". Perhaps; we don't really have the information, anyway.

So.

SBS do not exist *purely* to show what's popular; that's channel 9's job. SBS are the special broadcasting service and exist to show stuff that other people won't show. This is, after all, why they don't show, oh, the million dollar eddy show, or A Current Affair. You don't *want* them showing basing their decisions purely on "popularity", because then they will never show any anime ever again. The question is, is their charter better served by version X or version Y; popularity is certainly an issue, but it's certainly not the only one.

[1] We actually don't have a clue; what information we [the general public] have is ancient, and it's fairly clear that the market has dramatically shifted since then. But how much, or even in which direction, we really can't tell; there's evidence both ways.

I agree SBS is almost a unique station world wide in what they show and the vast range of content they present.

Back to the point of anime being on SBS, does anyone know where I would be able to find their customer feedback number, in order that I may give them a call and voice my joy that they are including anime in their line up. That and the wonderful fact that they are showing the Ashes series when not even 9 would pick it up.

Hi Fans,

Just to let you all know and this is all confirmed, the first 13 episodes of Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex will be screening weekly on SBS, from Thursday 15th of September at 10pm and continue on Thursdays at 10pm. If the ratings and response is well recieved SBS may pick up the rest of the series so get watching!


Do you have any information as to why only the first 13 are being aired, Sly?

Screened in English.


Excellent.

We all know how much SBS hate anime, so this is probably a toe in the water.

Thats pretty cool!

I'll be watching them all. What made them make the decision?
Are they celebrating Anime or they are finally realising that anime is good enough to show on SBS?

I'd rather SBS didn't show anime at all than showed it dub-only, though. I mean, GitS:SAC does have a watchable dub, at least, but still. In this new digital era, where they could easily show the dub and original language versions at the same time, it's rather daft.

(Unless I'm overestimating the ability of digital TV.)

I haven't been watching SBS as long as Greoboruri has, but I've watched the channel regularly for more than 10 years now, and I do agree with his point that SBS's attitude towards anime sucks, on general principles.

I was hoping that the new administration that came through last year would be somewhat more amenable to the form, but they haven't really proved that, so far.

I certainly won't be tuning in for SAC.
