Think you've got what it takes to be an anime voice actor? Well, we're not qualified to judge that! But, we can certainly help you practice with our Dumb Dubs!
Volunteers will get the chance to read along with scenes from their favorite anime, but each reading comes with its own twist! Maybe the script has been modified to make the scene a little more awkward? Maybe you'll have to read that scene with a British accent? Don't want to read? Join us anyway! There are no limits to the possibilities and no limits to the laughs you will have! Extended Description: A collection of anime clips are curated in preparation for this panel. The scripts are transcribed for each clip. Some clips have dumb modifications made for amusing results. (e.g. A clip from One Piece might be modified so the word "pirates" is exchanged with "mailmen".) Other clips have dumb director notes attached. (e.g. A clip from Food Wars might have the note that says ""Read Soma's lines like Dracula"".) Volunteer audience members will be selected and brought up to the microphone(s). They will be given the script to follow along as everyone watches the original clip together. Then, the clip will be played again (sometimes with modified background music, sound effects, and other surprises included) and the volunteers will get to read along and try to make it through without laughing too hard!
