 Yeah... eventhough the dubbers take too much freedom in the dialogues of Lupin III, I find it very acceptable and I enjoy the series very much. However, in the case of Flame of Recca and YYH, it's just not right.

 By the way, does anyone remember the local dubbing of Ninja Robots? I don't recall any anime series ever dubbed worse than that. Even the latter dubbing of Slam Dunk was bearable in comparison.
