Agreed, it did get better in the end, from the brief bits I heard. Its
entirely unacceptable to keep VA's in the dark like that. I think it should
be mandatory that all dub VA's watch the series (in its entirety!) in which
they're acting, in subtitled form. This will give them some idea of the
mannerisms and characteristics of the original seiyuu, along with a "big
picture" type view of how their character works. Methinks this would solve
many of the bad dub problems that plague us..
