Michael Tatum very carefully annunciate every word in the show. I couldn't tell if they were aping the super-articulate speech of the Japanese actors or what. It's not bad, it's just a little odd. The dub script is quite loyal to the subs. Palencia's performance really captures the character.

At this point this is a joke that has been beaten into the ground and has taken over any vestige of personality Juvia had left, something even her English VA Brina Palencia remarks on in her commentary for the episode. Palencia suggests that Gray gave Juvia her only sense of self-worth and that's why she has latched on to him the way she has, which does seem plausible given her origins; regardless, the episode feels somewhat painful to watch and Juvia like a character who could have been much more.
