FMA: yes
Bleach: Did you even listen to urahara's voice?


Haha, actually, I kind of liked Urahara's voice.


I thought they could have done a little better...


Don't get me wrong--I do somewhat agree with you. If I had to grade Urahara's dubbed voice, I'd give it about a B. I feel like his voice in the original version had more emotions, while the dubbed version makes him sound like a boring guy. But eh, the show is still worth watching with him in it, so haha, I still like it.

Does anyone here on CR know that "dubs" refer to anything that has voices basically, like Japanese dub, English dub, French dub, so by saying "All dub sucks" You're saying every dub sucks, including Japanese dubs. So please everyone, the dictionary is a wonderful place to find out what words mean.

I would be mean and start ranting on how there are tons of good Japanese dubs, but I won't be mean and just reply to the topic as the OP wanted it to be.

-.- There are many amazing English dubs, most people just shove them aside and judge them before actually giving them a chance. Ah yes, those idiots. >.> Personally, I actually liked the Inuyasha dub. Kagome's voice in the Japanese version was too high for my tastes and it got even more annoying when she shouted "Inuyasha!" Code Geass so far has been great, Lelouch's voice is a bit lower than the others though, but still fine.

I think Chris Patton is a decent voice actor. He has done over a hundred different series. He was the voice of Souske Sagura in FMP.

Lelouch's voice was perfect! I very much enjoyed it. In any case, I don't know what you're talking about as far as Lloyd is concerned. I thought he sounded disturbingly like his Japanese voice acting, but I will listen carefully to his voice again.

Watch the Samurai Champloo dub. It's funnier and in all other ways exactly as good, so it is actually better than the original.

It's still pretty good but I just thought it would be a bit deeper or rougher...I don't know how to explain it...Whatever, it's Bleach so anything is fine!

I know, but there is always that one hentai..... if your lucky, will have a good dub. For example, Hooligan. If it weren't for the sex, you would think, regular anime.

I like the Dub from Shakugan No Shana and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

I kinda hate the dub of Suzuka because the voice does not match the character's personality... It's like Suzuka herself became nicer because of that.

But I could not actually believe that the Dub actress of Tifa Lockhart was actually my favorite actress, Rachael Leigh Cook!!! She's as beautiful as her!

I was watching the Shuffle! dubs just yesterday, and I have to say that I actually enjoyed those dubs! I think that they are very well done. In fact, I almost prefer those voices over the Japanese voices.
I also have to say that the Lucky Star dub isn't so bad either. Along that same subject, neither is the Haruhi dub. Not as good as Aya Hirano, but still very well done I think.

Its nice there are some good ones out there saves me always having to read subtitles. Ones i've seen with good dubs are Love Hina, Inuyasha, Bleach, Elfen Lied (but i still prefer sub on that one) School Rumble (so far) Ai Yori Aoshi, Howls Moving Castle, Evangelion, Please Teacher (but not Please Twins), Fruits Basket, Shuffle! (well about half and half for that one) Coyote Ragtime Show and Hell Girl.

Terrible dubs i've seen are Negima, Tokyo Mew Mew, Kanon TV2, Haruhi Suzumiya and She: The Ultimate Weapon (have that lot ever heard of emotion behind flat whining?)


Disagree on Fruits Basket. The dubbing was really bad on that one. I could hardly tell the male voices apart, and the female lead was really... high pitched. High pitched sounds alright in Japanese, but it hardly translates well to English.

Aside from that, I am a big fan of all Studio Ghibli dubs. I thought Spirited Away and The Cat Returns were both amazing.
