I think a lot of people are confused here.

1. Seiyuu are usually best for their parts because they basically become the character. With all the Drama CDs, songs, radio talk shows, games, etc. they simply become their character and are often what makes or breaks the character. Example: The awesome Junko Takeuchi-sensei and her stellar Naruto - plus the radio show she hosts as Naruto.

2. American Voice Actors are completely different because they often don't do ANY of those extra things - they only do the anime and the video games. And they are often horrible at it - not because their voices suck, but because they simply cannot capture the character as well as the seiyuu does. I'm not sure if this is because they cannot possibly sympathize with a bunch of lines on a piece of paper or if it's because they are just being cast for the wrong roles.

3. This does not mean that seiyuu are all good - there are bad ones. Just the same, this does not mean that American voice actors are all bad, there are actually quite a few amazing ones that I hold dear.

As for the question: it depends on the voice actors ability entirely. If Tsuna's going to be voiced crappily, I will hate the dub. It would seriously be just my luck that they got Johnny Yong Bosch to ruin another main character for me (he's already killed Ichigo and Lelouche for me, mind you). It should be noted: Bosch is not a terrible voice actor (and he's a good natured person) - but they just keep giving him terrible roles.

NO WAY.
americans dont know how to compare their voices with the original ones.
for example,
take code geass.
lelouch's voice is so friggin high when english dubbed.
when actually its lower.

i have to say that they're tone-deaf.


omg! >:( I don't like dubbed versions <_<" Nothing can compare to how Japanese does it >:(!! but then. the only good english dubber is Jesse McCartney as Roxas in Kingdom Hearts 2 ^_^ Listen to it it's really good. (Haha this was 2 years ago. o_o) the video v
Jesse McCartney-Roxas interview

... You must have never watched quite a few good anime, dubbed. If you had, you would have definitely listed actual voice actors. You know, like Vic Mignogna, Crispin Freeman, and Yuri Lowenthal, for starters. As for video game voice actors, for some reason, the VAs and roles are put together almost perfectly in quite a few games.

I have mixed feelings about that. I'm usually not so strict on dubs, but there are characters in this show (like Reborn himself) that would be tough to find a good voice actor for. It'll get licensed eventually, so I guess we'll all see soon enough.

no cuz usually in english dubs they make it more appropriate for children so the voices would be messed up and the show would be very cheesy.

I don't care if they'll make a dubbed version of it, i'll still watch sub. It's better!

I know a handful of people who watch dub 'cause they were doing something else ex: homework, drawing, etc so they listen instead of reading the subs.

It's really up to one's preference
