I haven't had any opportunity to watch the anime dub since the first ep until today (I am very far behind, obviously) but, generic soundtrack aside, I'm actually okay with the English voice-acting and the script. Except the villains maybe: I'd expected a voice that was digitally altered to be very low and very eeeeevil for the Shadowlord.

The thing that struck me the most is that whoever wrote the scripts actually bothered to read up on the books. They changed "Joker"'s name back to Doom, for one; you also get some idea when you look at the episode titles (e.g. the episode I watched was titled "The Fight in Vetaksa Village" in Japanese, but it's called "Battle at Withick Mire" in the dub since that's what it's called in the books.) Colour me somewhat impressed! :)

I haven't been keeping track of the episodes that have been airing in Australia at all, but it appears that broadcasts are up to 12 episodes now. Cartoon Network seems to require logging in now to view the videos, which is strange because they worked fine for me without having to do that when it first started. \o_O/ Glancing at some of the titles though, I'm actually a bit impressed that they decided to keep them about the same as the original Japanese (probably because they're so straightforward and Deltora Quest isn't really one for making puns out of).

Also I only just noticed that they have summaries up to episode 52. This is interesting, considering in the anime's original run, there followed 10 extra filler episodes. Could it be the dubbers decided to cut them out? We'll see in about a year or two, I suppose. |D;

By the way, if you're still interested in watching DQ in Japanese with subs, appears to have them available for streaming online up to episode 26.

Edit: I almost forgot: the anime is set to air in the U.S. in the future as well.

Edit II: And there is a Deltora Quest wikia now!
[identity profile] now up on the Cartoon Network AU website.

Been digging around looking for info about when exactly Deltora Quest will be showing, and it looks like they've moved it to May 1st. ABC will also be showing it at the end of the year.

In the meantime! I do believe the first and second episodes are up for online viewing at the official website. Unfortunately, it has been through the usual kiddie anime dubbing process so the musics been changed and stuffs been cut out. This probably means we won't get Delta Goodrem singing one of the openings later ... Not sure how to feel about that.

If you're with Foxtel, apparently you can download the first episode here.

The first DVD will also be available via Madman in June. However, it seems unlikely it will come with the Japanese language track, soooo I'm wondering why they bothered officially subbing it for SMASH! last year. :\a

The anime has apparently been out in Italy since the third of March. Someone was kind enough to post the opening and ending they got over there. (I may be showing my age here, but... when 4Kids Entertainment's dub openings had less generic-sounding music than a current production, something is wrong. Not that it isn't catchy generic-sounding music, but ... the music and voice cast were what kept me watching the anime. This doesn't bode well for the rest of the soundtrack!) The editing on both is quite neatly done, I'll give them that!

But what caught my eye was the text over the ending that got posted...

Well, see for yourselves. )

Y'all remember my post last year about Deltora Quest showing at SMASH!? If you hadn't guessed, I didn't get to see it, unfortunately, and I haven't really heard a peep about it from anyone who went to the con on the second day. But nevermind that.

It's been announced that DQ will be airing in Australia and New Zealand on Cartoon Network in April.
