I don't really get why people are so hellbent on hating dubs. I don't mind them at all, and in fact prefer them for some series. Subs are wonderful for the fact that you have access to much more anime than you do with dubs, and also because it's nice to hear their original voices.

However, there are two dubs that are the worst things I've ever heard. Up until recently, I swore up and down that the Gravitation dub was the scum of the earth and the spawn of Satan and that it should not be touched with a 10 ft. pole. Then came along the Prince of Tennis dub. Oh. My. God. If you had told me a year ago that there would be a dub worse than Gravitation's I would have thought you were insane. Yet it's true. There really is a dub worse than Gravitation's.

No comment on which is better... (not that there is a need for any comments as most already know)

I prefer to watch anime both subbed and dubbed though so I can get the feel for both worlds.

I personally like dubs it's nice to be able to actually just listen to something like trigun if I'm doing something else i can flick between it.

I like the excel saga,outlaw star,cowboy bebop,trigun and flcl.

You want bad dub watch ninja terminator(not anime)

-hops on the band wagon- I loved the Fullmetal Alchemist dubs I think it's actually kinda better than the Japanese because they used more normal words. Or maybe it's the subbers fault. They use some big abstract words, so I have to pause the anime and go look it up >_>;

And holy crap, I can't believe some people like the Bleach dubs. I watched one episode and Rukia's voice alone made me want to stop. Let alone the horrible acting that ALL of the VA's had. Karin had to be the worst, though.

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.


WTF!?!? your like the 3rd person who sayed that!
I didnt watch Eva on [adult swim] but I got the platnum edition and I loved the dub. Was it any difference between the 2?


Well, the original dub pretty much made Eva a "mainstream" show, they took out 90% of the cursing, sexual jokes, Japanese cultural references, religious dialogue, ruined a few plot twists with bad wording choices, nudity, Rei's true foreshadowing of events and the vocal cast was the most pretentious actors they could find.
They toned down their acting later, but it was completely offensive if you have ever heard the sub. Traumatized Japanese characters do not shout EVERY DAMN LINE! It is against the social context of the show and the original sub.

Basically they made it into One Piece or Naruto. They dub is a PC version of a disturbing philosophical show. It couldn't offend anyone in this altered form.
"To be great, is rarely to be loved...to be great,is to be hated."

I didn't know they made a Platinum dub, . If it is anything like the newer subs, it is even more PC.

I like ''Dubs'' better than the originals, I can't understand the originals, unless they have sub-titles.

Of course you would, originals are in Japanese!

BTW Video Girl Ai is better dubbed. Read and compare the subtitles uploaded accidentally and you get a clear picture of good script corrections.

It may just be me, but I think that Full Metal Alchemist is better dubbed than original. Other than that, I think the original is always better.

I think english voice acting can be hit-or-miss but the localization is almost always better in the dub than in the sub, although many would argue it's too liberal.
