I've recently been watching Nanatsu no Taizai with his latin spanish dub and it's alright. So did the english JoJo one.

Have you seen good or bad dubs? Post 'em

Death Note, DBZ, and Yu Yu hakusho had decent dubs imo. Those are the only dubs i watched, i'm not a dub guy.

Uhm i don't really watch Dub but i guess a good one is Rosario Vampire, If i could live through it without quiting because of the voice than i mean its not bad.

The only good dub I would reccommend to people is Red Line.

The K-On dub is awful. My friends and I accidentally started the movie with that on and we all started screaming hysterically until someone was able to push the buttons to change it. The GuP dub was the same, and I was unfortunate enough to get a dual-track version and I would always forget that it starts in English with every episode.

idc, whichever sounds better with the anime.
Mostly it's dubs, but there are dubs better than subs.
i.e. Cromartie High

Everything else has been in subs

Absolutely cannot stand the Naruto English dub. I'm not exactly a fan of the show (only seen about 5 episodes) but the main character's English voice is unbearable to me, he's just annoying and shouting nonstop. If I ever get around to watching this series (probably won't as there's 500+ episodes, and it's STILL in progress) I will stick to subbed only.

The will only watch Dragon Ball Z (or any Dragon Ball series) in English as it was my first anime and I've grown very accustomed to the Funimation voice actors. It just feels weird watching it in subbed, this is pretty much the only show I HAVE to watch dubbed. I've also noticed that in a lot of the older episodes, the background music is completely different between the subbed and dubbed versions. (Subbed sounds like a classic suspenseful movie, lots of brass instruments and orchestra. Dubbed goes for hard rock and electronic new age, which just seems to fit the fighting scenes better in my opinion)

I used to be completely against watching subbed anime because I thought it was weird, but I've grown to prefer it more and more over the past year. I don't even play any of the Neptunia games in dubbed anymore, I like the Japanese voice actors way better. (especially Neptune, she's just got that personality down perfect) Same goes for Neptune The Animation.

The best English dub ever is the Unbreakable Machine Doll Dub. I LOVE how British everyone is and how many different dialects they packed into it. It is one of the rare time that I like the dub way more than the sub, just for my strange fetish for British accents.

But for dubs in general: I think most are okey-ish but rarely as good as the subs. I mean I can't come up with another great dub from the top of my head... maybe the German ElfenLied dub.

I'm suprised no-one else has mentioned it yet but ghost stories has the best dub, by far, it's hilarious.
I watch more or less everything else with subs though.

The only time I've ever even remotely enjoyed a dub more than the sub was Chromartie Highschool.

Contrary to popular opinion, I prefer to watch the dub for most anime. Partially because I hate how squeaky some of the characters can be in the sub (especially the token "cute" ones), and partially because you can pick up new turns of phrase just by paying close attention to the dialogue. My social skills ain't exactly the best, so it helps out a lot. The best dubs, in my experience, have a quality of writing exceeding that of many printed books.

Anything with Greg Ayres is automatically a good dub.

I'm the same somewhat. Watching anime dubbed just give different feels.


I've only watchd like 2 dubs, these being DBZ because I had been watching it since a kid and well, got used to the English voice. I somewhat dislike Goku's Jap voice tbh.

And another is Space Dandy because I had started watching it on Adult Swim. I could say I started wathing Naruto dubbed but I hated their voices and shit.

Full Metal Achemist and Panty and Stockings and some other on the list had some good dubs. Though I still prefer subbing over dubing

The Naruto english dub was unsufferable. Hell, i couldn't play the first two games until they put the original japanese dub into place. THe latin-american wasn't far away from that level of annoyingness since Naruto's voice is far more toned down, but otherwise characters like Sakura and Ino are painful to hear. And don't make me start on Hinata because it made a whole generation of latin-american weebs into making shitty, nasal-voiced fandubs.
Initial D both sucked in English and Spanish, mainly because they cut off all the sweet music and replaced it with generic synth tunes and the worst nu metal song ever.

I generally don't watch dubs, but there are some shows I'd rather watch the dub over the sub for
Those being, Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop, Baccano, and Panty n Stocking

Also, the Hajime no Ippo one is awesome. I think they managed to convey the original feeling pretty well.

Black Lagoon is great in English dub. I never watch dubbed anime, but this was an exception and I wasn't disappointed.

I just picked up Smile! PreCure on Netflix and it's outrageous. No one should allow Saban to take on any japanese franchise ever again.

I'm not a fan of dubs at all.
Honestly, just stick to reading the subs.
