I know a lot of you anime people prefer watching the original episodes subtitled than watching a dubbed version. However, I think that some dubs are better than the original versions. I don't watch a lot of animes but I think it would be interesting to know what your opinions are on this. I think Cowboy Bebop has a better English dub than Japanese dub but from you anime experts, what one's are also better iyo?

I enjoy the Cowboy Bebop dub quite a bit

The hellsing dub is hands down better than the original. Since the series takes place in england, they play with the language alot more than the japanese version does, and it's cool to see everyone with english accents.

The Neon Genesis Evangelion dub that they had on Adult Swim sucked the most ass ever. It was even worse than the Naruto dub. I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it, I hated it.

dubs in general are not "that" bad i jus prefer not to watch them because in alot of dubs they cut off alot of the show itself (seeing as i mostly get my dubed anime from tv) and i ended up missing alot so i just think the originals should be watched more than dubs (though i do admit some dubs are just god awful)

I agree with you probably 90% of the time. However, I too like the dub of Cowboy Bebop quite a bit (I even think that Edward's voice in the dub is better than the original). I also agree with azrael; the English Hellsing dub is actually better than the Japanese.

And yes, Ktito, the Evangelion dub is the single greatest travesty ever commited upon an unsuspecting mankind. It makes all my orifices bleed with the pain.

It really depends on the licensors. ADV has done good job. Funimation and Bandai are pretty much hit or miss. The rest either suck bad or stick in random voices and sometimes get lucky.

Oh yeah I forgot, full metal panic was good to in english. They tried to use the same sort of voices as they had in japan, and did a pretty good job.

Another ADV license. Chrono Crusade and Full Metal Panic are BOTH by ADV. EVA was too, but none of them are really ADV voices. As I've also said before, its not like the original voices are perfect. A lot of the time, they are on par with the dub. When I say "on par" I mean equally as bad. When they cut out parts, then that's a big difference. However, MOST of the time they only do that when it comes to TV and leave it the same on DVD. I still remember vampires giving eachother blowjobs in Hellsing. One part I could have lived without. I am quite skeptical about how they are going to dub BECK though. I guess I'll find out next year when it comes to DVD.

I thought both subbed and dubbed of all of those anime sucked. Well the plot in general sucked, but their voices were so horrid that I wanted to rip out my brain so that I would have never have even remembered what kind of displeasing sound that brought my ears to cry.

*Cries* The One Piece dub is the worst thing 4Kidz has done! They deserve to BURN for that dub. It's just so awful...

Actually, I was flipping through the channels and I saw a commercial for the new season of Pokemon. Oh my gosh! I dunno if Ash went through puberty or what the heck happened but his new voice is terrible. =D I laughed, a lot.

I like the Full Metal Alchemist dub. Really, Ed's voice is just awesome. I can go both ways with Cowboy Bebop but I prefer the English. I can't STAND the Japanese voices for Fruits Basket. Mostly because Yuki's voice actor is a girl...it just doesn't suit him. Just because he looks like a girl doesn't mean he has to sound like one. Plus Tohru's voice is ANNOYING. It's high pitched and ew. (Though if you've ever seen that voice actor she looks a lot like Tohru, it's weird)

beck is going to be dubbed? now how is that going to be possible? what would they say when chiba and the others are speaking in japanese then after a while ryuuske is speaking in english talking to her sister? and koyuki even mentioned he doesnt quite understand english... he was just singing his songs... will the dub translate those in english? the thought is quite confusing..
