What do You Think about the Soul Eater Dub?

FUNimation added a new video to its YouTube lineup-- the first clip from its Soul Eater dub. The series' stars are Soul Eater, played by the young up-and-comer Micah Solusod, who I interviewed at New York Anime Festival, and Maka is being played by FUNi regular Laura Bailey.
  
 
I think Micah sounds awesome-- his other main role is in the as-yet-unreleased Blassreiter, so other than the brief preview he shared in the interview, I hadn't heard him voice-act before. Laura Bailey sounds pretty good too, IMO. Any thoughts?

Terrible, when compared to the original. Just like every other dub out there.  Chiaki Omigawa  is one of my favourite voice actors, so this just sounds bad.

This WILL be  Micah's breakthrough voice role from what I heard. but I'm more interested in the other voice roles.

Doesn't sound too bad. I think Maka is lacking a tiny bit of the personality, but often times you find in dubs it takes a few episodes for the actor to really bring the personality out.
 
They do pretty well in sticking to the original lines and they keep the terminology. I'm interested in seeing how they handle Liz and Patty. As well as Blair. I would like to get this manga series, that is being released this month; but I'm waiting to see if they make any alterations to the art.

I think the voices are fine, but who the heck did the adaptation??? The dialogue is really strained and awkward.

Sounds great. Could be up for one of the better dubs of the year

The heck, i cant view a smegging trailer because I'm not in the US? This is ridiculous. Great way to promote your anime geniuses.  :(

@FoxxFireArt: Maka was lacking in personality in the japanese dub as well. Not saying her voice actor wasn't good, but there wasn't much personality in her voice.

For the first few moments, I wasn't sold on Soul. It was at the time that he gave the " 'Course, I look much cooler" line that I bought it. As for Maka, couldn't ask for anything else.

Sounds good to me, though i have not heard the Japanese voices so i cannot really compare if that makes any sense, but i like what i heard.

She's kind of the vanilla character. At lease in comparison to how everyone else has a pretty large "quirk" that effects their behavior.

I actually enjoyed how flat Maka sounded most of the time in the Japanese dub. It'll take some getting used to if this person doesn't deliver in much the same way.

The dub sounds badass.
