I dislike english dubs, especially the ones where the voice doesn't even match the personality of the characters. Drives me crazy!!

There are some cases where I actually find the English dub voice to be better than the Japanese original. For example, Kenshin's English dub is more fitting than the Japanese one which sounds like a girl. And Solid Snakes' English voice is cooler in MGS. Of course , I perfer subbed to dubbed like most anime purist.

Dubs can be viewed by people of younger ages. - They don't have to read the text really fast..
Ya know, we like have to learn how to proof read..

Well with Dubs that isn't required, its just listen and watch.
Instead of Read, watch, listen.

Although, Dubs are annoying because you gotta hear it.. and if your not allowed your volume up high of a night.. then it can be a pain. - Thats why subs are cool. You don't need the volume to high to understand what is going on.

I don't like dubs...
They should just show the original anime with subtitles...

i agree... dubs suck! and they change what they say, because they don't like what they are saying.... but it is always better the original way!

Lol dubs are absolutely hilarious to watch. But sometimes I think certain voices in dubs are better (especially if I watch the dub before I watch the actual Japanese version). Like in Cardcaptor Sakura, I watched it in English first then Japanese and I absolutely hated Yue's voice compared to his English one.

I learned to speed read and insta-proof reading from watching anime/movies/dramas with subs.

I think some people overreact to dubs AND fillers and here's the solution.

1. Dubs = If you like the japanese version better, ignore the english dubs! Duh! What are you dumb?

2. Dubs (Again) = If you can only see the english version, how could you honestly judge? Besides if it sucks, don't watch it!

3. Fillers = If you know which episodes are filler, just don't watch them! Duh! Does someone have a gun to your head making you watch?

Your use of the word 'Duh' makes me want to inflict harm upon you

Dub sucks... it brings bad name to a good anime like what happened to one piece... 4kids made it horrible.

I really hate some dubs, no, most of them actually
Naruto for example. Lol
And due to censorship laws in Usa and England etcetcetc.. they edit out loads of scenes, language, violence.. blood!
Haha... and cigarettes ^__^
In one piece, sanji always has a cigarette, but in the dubs, they changed it to a lollipop. How stupid.

So yeahh I dont like them when they go over the top.
