Hi guys,

So I have never watched Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, which too many people have reminded me is a shame. It's next on my to-watch list. And I was just wondering if those of you who have seen it prefer the sub or dub version? I have enjoyed both formats in other animes. The subs are always fun to watch, as I feel I get more of the intended message. Whereas the dubs are trickier as so many of them can be translated badly or voiced badly, but some dubs are actually really good (e.g. Cowboy Bebop) and I have ended up preferring them.

So yeah, I guess I'm just wondering in the case of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, is the dub decent, or is it like total crap and should be avoided? Any feedback would be appreciated! I want my first watch to be the best possible!

Go with the subbed version.
I always prefer to watch with the subs because it feels "more"real to me.
By accident I started to watch a dubbed episode of F.A.B. and the voices didn't seem to fit the characters.
And I binge watched F.A.B. this year, so do not feel ashamed. One life is too short to watch all the good anime .
What are your favorite animes?

Awesome! Thank you for the feedback!

And my favourites would be Hunter x Hunter, Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, Sailor Moon (super nostalgic since I grew up with it, and it will always have a place in my heart for it) and Steins;Gate. What are some other favourites of yours?

I started to watch Hunter x Hunter but I lost interest in it. Death Note: awesome. Cowboy Bebop and Sailor Moon, did watched a few random episodes because it was on t.v.

My favourites are: Naruto/Boruto, Bleach and One Piece of course .
Attack on Titan, Terraformars, Drifters, Black Lagoon, Ajin, Knights of Sidonia, Darker than Black, Beck.

But my all time favorites are Clannad, Clannad After Story and Elfenlied. If you are going to watch these, better be prepared for the onion cutting ninjas .

I never have watched this but will do someday. I'd say subs are probably better but the dub cast is also quite famous so what could go wrong?

Sub. On the dub, the voices felt too old or odd.
