There's a lot of stigmata twords english dubbing and how much they sometimes suck, such as the Naruto dub, which I for one like quite a bit. Aside from Naruto constantly sounding constipated and saying "Believe It!" in place of "Dattebeyo" (I think they've cut back on the Believe it as the series went on and the voice actors got into their roles), there are a lot of high quality voice actors in the english Narutoverse. Such as Shino, who I think sounds better in the english dub because it fits his character much better than the japenese version. Kakashi also sounds pretty bad ass, and they captured Orochimaru's creepiness pretty well.

The english dub for Bleach is being released sept 9th at 11:30 on Adult Swim. Ichigo will be voiced by Ex-Black and Green Power Ranger, Johnny Yong Bosch. A lot of people are pissed about this because of johnny's track record of doing whiney sounding teenager voices and many are concerned he won't be able to pull of Ichigo's low register and eternally pissed off voice. I for some reason think he'll do pretty well and I have no idea why. I can somehow invision him doing Ichigo's voice perfectly, but maybe I'm just insane.

Anywho, discuss english dubs and how much they rock/suck

Some are good and some are bad; however, the only one I'd really deem as good is Hellsing.

FLCL had a good english dub.

Actually Johnny Yong Bosch did the voice for Vash, so I'm pretty sure it won't end up that bad.

I started off on English dubs and moved to the subtitles later. I prefer the subtitles, but it is different for everyone. Just find what you like and be happy.

English dubs are great depending on how the actors fit to their characters. but in general are really bad.

Cowboy Bebob had a great dub...
But Naruto was awful...

i'd still preffer to stick to subs...

I somehow feel that the Naruto voices fit the personas quite snugly if not well. I could've sworn sometimes that I was watching Naruto for the first time in a long while sometimes when watching it.

What really should deserve bashing is One Piece. My God, how did 4Kids do that to such a hardcore anime? Maybe revealing the process will make more sense...

lol, yeah i couldn't agree with you more.

Overall, i'd say subs are far better then dubs. Other then the occasional dub, none of them are even close to the subbed versions of themselves. Imo the reason subs are so much better is because the japanese media/public takes anime as seriously as we take sitcoms, movies, etc. here in america.

I prefer Japanese over English Dubs, that doesn't mean I dislike them all english dubs. I believe that FLCL, Hellsing ,Cowboy Bebop, and Samurai Champloo have good voice overs. In those listed, the voices fit very well in my opinion.Sadly good dubs are rare.

The only two good dubs Ive heard are Cowboy Bebop and Akira.

I heard the Full Metal Alchemist once the other day. Sounds like its recorded in someones basement.

Most English dubs are very bad of what I heard. With some even the Dutch Dubs are much better.

Good ones in English: GITS, NGE.

I agree with Sarkins sometimes though, In anime if all you are doing is concentrating on the subs you MISS so much of the anime itself, But on the other hand if you hear an anime that is done really badly it draws you away from the anime itself, My solution.....everybody should learn japanese so they can understand AND not miss everything

The original Akira dub was awesome, but the dub on the "remastered" version was really bad. The translation was off and the characters' voices were much worse. Other than that the only decent dub I've heard is Bebop because I watch most of my anime with subs.
