If you find a dub that is better than a sub, please tell me then i would reconsider my statement, but otherwise this forum is a waste of time.

I've found myself liking Code Geass's dub more than the sub, but that's really my opinion. But what's wrong with asking people how they feel about dubs? Not everyone's going to say "dubs are bad, subs are awesome FACT". And though there are dubs that are godawful (I'm looking at you Sailor Moon!), there are still some amazing ones out there (I liked AIR's, Ouran's, and I'm slowly warming up to Clannad's).

The sub was way better for me since Jun Fukuyama did lelouches voice. I did watch code geass on adultswim, the dubbing was an okay standard but the japanese subs were just better than it overall.

So really? really? Dubs are worse than THIS?

http://www.animehere.com/hidan-no-aria-episode-5.html

for those who don't follow the link. The subber in question has trouble with English grammar. Every line like one spoken by Yoda, it reads. Apparantly thinks that the great grandaughter of Sherlock Holmes should be addressed by the villain as 'Olmes'. and most importantly, clutters the screen (by which I mean FILLS) with footnotes defining words such as hentai and nakama (but not bothering to translate them in the actual text) said footnotes also including a rant about how the 'BakaGaijin' couldn't possibly understanding the meaning of such mystical Japanese words.

If this is the superiority of subs over dubs. I'd rather get my anime translated by DiC or 4kids. (yes I know how bad they are. That's my point)

I don't think it's fair to say that ALL english dubs suck. Saying that makes you a weaboo. After all, straight english does sound better than engrish. Most dubs are disappointing but there are also good english dubs.... but they're kinda rare. My personal favorites are the dubbed version of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Black Lagoon. Those two are really good.

Dubs aren't that bad, but the voices aren't loud enough to hear them properly without turning the sound up. Or background music is to loud, depends on how you look at it. That is the main reason I prefer subs over dub.

Never really like dubs , just can't get used to them. For me , jap animes aren't animes if the character somewhat speaks in english. Just sounds weird and wrong at some point. Originality comes first.

Given that no doubt the dub would have to be better in your opinion, it would seem to be a futile effort.

Declaring this forum a waste of time does not render that opinion fact. As others have stated an opinion that dubs exist that are as good or better than the sub, the criteria for this forum having purpose has already been met, unless you wish to proclaim your opinion is the only one that counts. If that is the case, please review RozenHaela's question.

I'll take any dub over the only sub I can find of Hidan no Aria ep. 5. Thanks to that subber I know there's one anime I'll probably not finish until the dub comes out.

I like both the Subs and Dubs I've found that I can watch both. I'll admit that English ruins things as Japanese and English are not compatible languages, to translate it must be hard as what it really means and what it translates out to are typically different (or have multiple possible English words it can be) However, I like some dubs (Kurokami was good, as was FMA, Naruto, Trigun, Wolf's rain, Blood+, Trinity Blood) but hate others (the dub of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni ruined Rena's voice in my opinion even her "I'm gonna kill you voice" didn't sound crazy enough in English)

my opinion is that there are very few Dubs that can compare to the japanese voices. The Higher Quality ones for me were F.M.A ,FLCL, Full Metal Panic, Rourouni Kenshin, and Inuyasha since i never got used to subbed anime when i was 13-14. Most the time it is not easy to pay to get really good dubs but i dont absolutely hate them. 95% of the time (maybe more) Anime are better subbed. But im sure people have found some series they prefer dubbed over.

I generally far prefer subs to dubs, but I love the school rumble dub to death. It's hilarious, better than the sub in my opinion.
Other than that.....death note's dub was pretty good as well.

I really don't mind Anime dubs over the years they have improved and now most of them are pretty much on par with their Japanese counterparts now. A good comparison would be to watch some of the 4Kids One Piece dub and Funimation Dragonball Z then go watch Funimation One Piece and Dragonball Z Kai and you will see how much better the last 2 are. My only problem with dubs is that some things are lost in translation. (though this applies to subtitles as well).
