The music is decent.
Anzabel
It includes both a Japanese and English soundtrack, for those who'd rather watch it in Japanese, with subtitles available too!

Needless to say I was ecstatic to find they were dubbing it!

I really wanted to love this. I really, really was excited to get the English dub of Loveless, but the voice acting is pretty bad. Like really bad.

{English Dub Rant
It's all monotone, like they were just reading off the script instead of acting.

Also, I just can't stand Ritsuka's voice. He's obviously played by an adult woman (which is common but not normally so obvious), and I feel like he's not as adorable as he is in the Japanese one because of it.

The thing I can't stand the most is that they can't pronounce names properly. I'm big on pronunciation. I'll admit, I don't speak Japanese, but, come on, "Say-may" just sounds ridiculous. It's pronounced "Seh-meh". Sentouki, Seimei, Ritsuka, etc. they completely butcher. I didn't even think "Soubi" could be mispronounced since it's pronounced exactly how it's spelled, but...}

The only reason why I gave it a high score is because it features the Japanese vocals with English subtitles as well, so even if you can't stand the English, you can enjoy Loveless with the original vocals AND I LOVE Loveless.

Loveless itself is amazing. Ritsuka is such a cutie, I just want to hold him!

It's a little slow to pick up, but it's like that in the manga. The plot doesn't really unfold until after the 4th volume, and this DVD only covers the first 4.

The music is decent.

Verified Purchase
First off, I adore loveless. I've read every manga, the scanlations and the official North American released versions. I've watched the fansubbed, and official subtitled versions of the anime.I even have a huge loveless wall scroll in my living room! Needless to say I was ecstatic to find they were dubbing it! I was disappointed by the reviews on here that all said the dub wasn't worth it, that the voices were monotone, etc. I almost didn't purchase it, but my love for the series won out, and I'm so glad it did!

I think those that reviewed about the voices didn't really understand that Soubi is meant to sound a bit robotic. He has one purpose in life, and that is to fight for his sacrifice. He has had a hard life of training to make him understand that's his only purpose. And he's acting on Semei's orders, so, yes, his voice is meant to be a bit monotone, and I loved it in this! Also Ritsuka is a deeply depressed boy, and the voice actor for him captures that perfectly, only adding emotional depth when he's upset or being passionate about something. I was pleased to find that Yuiko's voice was very close the Japanese version. Probably the only voice I wasn't really happy with was Hitomi's, but it eventually grew on me.

I also don't understand the rants by people saying that the names are mispronounced. They aren't. If you look at their spelling, it may seem like they are, since if I say "Seimei" I would assume it's pronounced "Seh-meh" but anyone who actually listens to how it's pronounced by the Japanese voice actors, rather than imposing their own assumptions on it, will see that it is indeed pronounced "Say-may" There was only one name that was really mispronounced, and it wasn't a character name, it was a city name.

If you're a fan of the series, make your own judgement call on this, don't just assume it's another poorly done dubbing based on reviews here.

I'm spoiled on watching subs, apparently, because I've grown to expect a lot from anime in terms of voice acting. This was not a lot.

I've heard worse, but this is far from spectacular. Some of the pronunciations gave me pause. However, ignoring the irritatingly monotone drone that is my darling Soubi, I will add that Ritsuka and Yayoi sound decent.

....

No, really, that's it.

I anticipated worse considering the hentai background of some of the voice actors, but this is hardly what I would call an excellent dub.

Loveless is my all-time favorite anime, and I purchased this in addition to the collection that I already own as a show of support for a series that I love. That this is a hybrid is the primary reason I'm giving it a generous three.

Although I expected more, I have to say that the dubbed version of this anime series surprised me. My favorite of the dubbed voices has to be Yuiko. I think the woman who did her really did a great job. However, Soubi's voice actor somewhat disappointed me. While I did like him in the beginning, the monotone personality bored me to death by the end of it. I've seen the Japanese version and while Soubi does seem to be more of the monotone type, by the last episode, Soubi has gained SOME personality.

The voice actor who did Ritsuka did a fair job. I think there could have been a bit more that she could have done that would have made it better, but she certainly did some scenes well.

Overall, I don't regret buying this. I found more disappoint in the dubbing of Vampire Knight than I did here.

I got my Loveless in the mail today and first thing I did was watch the first disk! I must say in my own personal opinion they did a great job on the dubbing for being a bunch of unknown VAs. From what I watched I personally loved all the voices and thought they fit rather well to the characters and their ages. I am kind of sad that the dubbing followed the subtitles almost exactly (makes watching it in english with the subs on less fun) but that's really because of personal preference. All in all if you were a fan of the Japanese you won't be disappointed and if i could I would give this more than 5 stars.
